Life flashes by...

Don't get me wrong. Scrapbooking is very important to me and the community of friends I've made means the world to me.

My world for this moment, has turned upside down. I've been gone from home unexpectedly for the last two weeks. I've been with my very best friend who is staring death in the face. It completely turns my priorities back where they belong. Life is too short and people and lives are too important.

All that to say, I'm in Canada and haven't had much access to a computer. Thus, no blogging or crafting. Now I'm at my Mum's house for a bit.

It's so hard to watch people you love suffer emotionally, mentally and physically. God is good...all the time. All the time... God is good. I know that I know that I know, His glory will reign through all of this even though I can't see it right now.

I'm beginning to realize why it didn't work out for me to go to CHA. Although, I'm sad to have missed it, I'm beginning to see God's plans for where He wants me right now.

I pray that all you blog readers have a fabulous weekend and somehow get to celebrate CHA (craft and hobby association.) There are lots of fun challenges and contests on the Fiskateer blog. Check it out!

It is so hard to watch a friend suffer, be strong, of good courage and keep looking up.
