Wonderful Sunday

Hello!  It’s such a beautiful, crisp fall day!  Church was uplifting today.  It always fills my heart with such joy to see the fellowship of believers I belong to!  We are headed to the mountains to have lunch with friends that we haven’t seen for a very long time, and then probably home to watch Nacho Libre, or Vegas Vacation yet again…a soothing bedtime ritual that is so comforting because of it’s familiarity.

I am an ER nurse, as well as a wife and mommy.  I worked yesterday-and I always come home burdened with other’s plight.  It has brought me to start praying for them recently.  I hope that they can find peace.  Many are not at a place in life where they are open to hearing the Good News.  It always amazes me just how many people suffer with emotionally induced illness.  Their problems have taken such a hold on them that they actually begin to experience physiological illness.  And so, with that said, I am thankful once again for my life-however humble it may be.  I am thankful for a husband who always has a song in his heart and on his lips.  I am thankful that he loves me so much that he chose to spend his life with me.  I am thankful for our son, who is the drive in my heart and the energy in my soul-even on his cranky days.  I am thankful for friends and family who support all my endeavors, even when they are corny and ridiculous!  I am thankful to God to have been born into a Christian home where the love of Christ was taught to me!  I am thankful that God gave me a creative spirit, and many wonderful things to think about.

About rusticstory

I am an active hiking mama and wife who loves creating beautiful things. I take landscape photography and my husband and I give old wood a new life by creating rustic frames. I have begun using a wood burning pen to create design and wording on the frames. I have a passion for creating new things and have recently taken to my husband's miter saw and router. I love the feeling of looking at a new frame creation, and kicking myself for not thinking of this earlier in life! I also love the thought of my high school shop teacher looking at these with disbelief in his eyes (shop class was not my first love!). My super supportive hubby helps me wrestle the sometimes warped pieces of wood into something absoutely beautiful! It is such a metaphor for life to me...my Jesus wrestles the warped pieces of my life into something beautiful. The most poetic thing about this metaphor is this; the pieces of my life that I thought were un-salvagable were the exact pieces I had to go through to form the absoutely beautiful life I have now. It would not have happened any other way. My blog is a complation of experiences of love, life, photography, and frame making! All frames and photography are available for sale on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/RusticStory. Please visit and enjoy!
