Spiritual Sundays

Hello friends~
When I was growing up, church was a very big part of my life. In fact one of my earliest memories is sitting in church beside my beloved Granny when I was three years old and listening to the preacher.
I loved going to Sunday School and learning scripture verses, and I loved singing in the choir.
My father was very involved in church so naturally my brother and I took part in church too.
When I was fifteen, I made a commitment to follow Christ.

By the time I was married and had my first child, my hubby and I were living in a new home and by all appearances, I should have been walking on air; but I wasn't!
Somewhere along the way, I had grown cold towards God and I had accumulated all this unwanted baggage in my life. I felt I had no direction so I wasn't completely happy.

One day a pastor pointed out to me that I needed to get my heart right with God again. I needed to give all my unwanted baggage to Him. The pastor told me that if I did that, God would direct my path from that day on. So I did. I emptied myself and allowed His grace to fill me up again.

But do you know what I discovered? The Lord had brought me to the place where I was; wanting more of Him, wanting to rid my heart of the garbage that had accumulated there! Even though I had allowed the busyness of my life to come between the Lord and me, He was faithful not to leave me. He had kept His hand upon my life and He had been directing my path all along.

Maybe you are looking for direction in life.......Psalm 37:23 says,

"The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives." {NLT}

Proverbs 3:6 says, "Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take." {NLT}

Aren't you glad we serve a loving and faithful God?
I hope you will take some time to visit Charlotte and Ginger at Spiritual Sundays. You can click on the link or the SS button on my sidebar.

Pink Saturday

Good morning pinkies~ The weeks are just whizzing by and before we know it, Spring will be here! I can't wait!

I have this little teacup with pink blossoms on it which always reminds me of Springtime when I look at it. One of my shower gifts once upon a time.......It has two of my favourite colours on it; pink and aqua. It also has a unique rim. I really like the look of a teacup and pearls, don't you?

A year ago, I shared one of my first ceramic pieces. I thought I would share it again for those of you who haven't seen it.
This is Penelope and she is a sweet little girl all dressed up in her pink frock for Easter with her Easter bonnet in her hand. Her frock is tied with an iridescent ribbon and she wears her favourite locket around her neck.
Her bonnet is adorned with a pink ribbon, shabby pink roses and lots of lace. She has her hair done up in ringlets and she has real satin ribbon in her hair. She was a lot of work and she sure was a challenge at the time!
Thank you all for stopping by today. Please make your way over to see Beverly and her party of pinkies at and have a wonderful pink weekend everyone.
