My Freedom Day 5

Shimelle's Prompt - "How do you prefer the pace of life? Do you wish things would speed up or slow down? Illustrate with something that has been on your mind or on your calendar or share your preference between working slowly or quickly on a crafting project."

I like to be busy, which is lucky as I have too many hobbies and always have a few projects on the go! I really should finish one before starting another. I sometimes like to slow down and just rest and know I should spend more time just chatting with God - but there always seems to be something pulling at me.

Things on my mind! Gosh loads - my financial planning exam at the end of the month (I really should start studying), DD music exams, DS hearing test, plus all the other practicalities of work and home, hobbies - quilts, wall hangings, Christmas hanging, scrapping, card making, unfinished bags, CJ ... to name but a few.

But it's not all gloom and doom - I have finished DDs quilt

My Freedom - Day 4

Shimelle's prompt "Have you ever been inspired by the words of a poem? Share the poem with your blog readers and tell them how you came to value its words."

Sometime when you’re feeling important;
Sometime when your ego’s in bloom
Sometime when you take it for granted
You’re the best qualified in the room,

Sometime when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how they humble your soul;

Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining
Is a measure of how you’ll be missed.

You can splash all you wish when you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop and you’ll find that in no time
It looks quite the same as before.

The moral of this quaint example
Is do just the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself but remember,
There’s no indispensable man.

"Indispensable Man" Saxon Uberuaga

I think it's important for us all to have self worth but also a good balance of humility.

I've skipped day 3 as it's the suitcase game and I thought I may as well play this for really when I pack later in the week!

My Freedom - Day 2

Shimelle's blog prompt "If you could travel in time for just one day, where would you go and what would you do?"

I've thought long and hard about this and decided I would like to go to Jirus' house

(picture by Gabriel von Max entitled 'The raising of Jirus' Daughter'.)
I think it would be wonderful to see Jesus, see him perform a miracle and join the celebrations of the family.

My Freedom

I'm motivated and ready to start Shimelle's new class. Hopefully I'll get the kit tomorrow as FIL has bought it for my birthday :).

Shimelle not only provides us with a scrapping prompt each day of the week but a blog prompt too - so give me a big nudge if I don't post daily as I'm obviously getting behind again!

Today's prompt - "We’ll start easy. Post a picture you take from your clock adventure as you look for all the time pieces in your house. Tell your blog readers about this project and you hope to make time for it."

As I usually only get chance to blog whilst at work - here's the best I can do re time pieces!
