Well my little cottage is busting out with excitement around here. Last fall a darling friend of mine – Heather Lundgren Martin called and ask if she could put my little cottage in their spring magazine- Abilene Living.I said sure but was a little afraid that when people saw my house they would not understand- why the heck I have a broken umbrella, an awning or an old window hanging above my bed on the inside of my house. I do understand my home is a little different – to say the least. What can I say – I love junk and what can be made from it. Well the Magazine came out this week – it was like waiting for Christmas morning to arrive for this grown up kid! I could not be happier at how it looks – thanks Heather and the amazing photographer Jason McDonald.
I was a little over whelmed by it all –I thought it would be like one page of pictures but there are 6 pages of my house! What was so COOL about this and just a example how God works through our lives daily is the rest of the story! The Magazine spotlights people around Abilene and I shared the pages with some amazing Christ centered folks! One story was about my Praying Angel Friend Doris – remember the story I told you about my angel who prayed over me in my darkest days? There she was written up about her prayer ministry and her Antique shop – God works in mysterious ways! Also Heather who owns the magazine, as a child came every summer to my Kids Sewing Camp and I taught her to sew. She was one of my favorites because she had(and still does) the cutest bubbliest personality ever! Isn’t it just amazing that 18 years later God puts us together again! She writes about her coming to the store and the memories she has with Mom,Brenda and myself.
What I have thought of all week is- that you just never know the impact of people in our lives and the way God weaves our stories together.
Thanks again Heather – You can pick up a copy around town and guess what? Its free!
Well I guess I better get back to earth and go clean the bathrooms – ugh!
