Correcting a mistake

Written by Sue, Saturday, may 22, 2011
This week I decided to lengthen the sheers on the porch by taking the wide hem out and having a small hem. this worked fine (lots of work)~grin~ I then decided to add more sheers as I wanted a fuller look, These sheers are some  I had bought several months back, not realizing I had bought the wrong size. I took the wide hem out of number one and something inside said "you need to hem it and put it up with the older panels, before finishing the others," but I opted not to do this. I finished all of panels, went to bed, and planned to hang them with the older panels, the next morning.... feeling very proud of my project.~smile~

When I hung the first panel.I looked down and realized it was about five inches shorter than the older panel,"oops"

I said to myself, "I bet they put the wrong size when they packaged them.".... Isn't that just like us, wanting to play the blame game? I  measured them over and over again and  don't know why I kept measuring, I guess I thought the length would grow. ~smile~

I even compared them to an older panel I had, >light bulb comes on>... "Sue you bought the wrong size, and now what are you going to do, you have all these panels that have been altered, why didn't you listen to the voice within you?'.... Just like us when we make mistakes , we always ask Why! Why! Why!

I could either pack them away(cover my mistake), and hope for the best, but I decided to face my mistake and leave them up. After I tied them, I looked at the end results, and thought, "Hey this is not bad at all, I will finish hanging them and enjoy seeing how much pleasure they will give me"......

This is the way it is with us and God, we make mistakes,  feeling  hopeless and not knowing what to do,.... God comes along and takes our mistakes and reworks them, places us in that just right spot,  He steps back  sees that He took something that we thought was messed up (our life) and makes something beautiful of it.
Some might think the sheers aren't pretty, but the creator (me) thinks they look fine.... I know the mistake is there and it has been rectified, God knows our mistakes and forgives them! How AWESOME is this?

He now  steps back and sees that He took something that we thought was hopeless,and He made something beautiful of our life,... only He could do this.

Romans 8:37-39~Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For  I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
nor height nor depth, nor  any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The longer I live, the more I am aware of God's love for me, just think" Nothing", will ever separate you and I from the love of God! This is so humbling to me.

Praying many blessings for you dear friends
As always comments are off on Sunday~

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
