Update & A Prayer for You

Hey everyone! Im sorry Ive been away so long- its been a busy summer!! My husband Ian and I are traveling the midwest selling our handmade jewelry at Renaissance Faires on the weekends, Im getting to spend a lot of time with my now 6 month old grandson (yes, this is him, learning to crawl and playing with my window curtains:) when Im home in between AND we are keeping our online business going all at the same time.

Along the way I have been victorious in some health struggles (YAY GOD WE WIN:) and been having a wonderful time drawing near to the Lord whilst making the jewelry we sell- I am so thankful for the wonderful life He has blessed us with, and expect it to just keep getting better every day!!

Right now we are in the middle of a 7 weekend in a row festival stint, once we get a wee break from that I will plan to take a bit of time to write in more detail about the things Ive been pondering from the Lord, but for now here is one of my favorite prayers from the New Testament- a wonderful idea to pray this for ourselves and our brothers and sisters in Christ all around the world!!:

...I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
~Ephesians 3:14-21
