Is It Cold At Your House?

It's cold at my house!

 I will admit that I have been guilty of complaining that we never have winter here. 

When you live in South Georgia and have as many days of below freezing weather as we have had, we can definitely say that we have had winter!

This is not normal for us. We are so used to having some days that you can wear shorts, even during the winter. 

We missed the big snowstorm that we were all looking forward to. 

In spite of the cold weather, I have been trying to get some things painted for my booth.
Here's a little before and after.

It sold less than an hour after putting it in my booth!
Annie Sloan Chalk paint Old White.
Slightly distressed with clear wax. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Today I am joining in and sharing my un-word for 2104.

Caught or held in a position so that you cannot move. 

There were lots of words I could have chosen, but I think stuck adequately describes what I have felt, and where I have been this past year. 
I simply allowed circumstances to get me to a place where I felt paralyzed.
For one who is all to familiar with depression, I know all of the right things to do. I know that God is sovereign. I know He is in control, but we live in a fallen world. People make bad choices, and people do bad things.

This year is the year that I want to trust HIM more and not allow myself to be controlled by my circumstances. His word tells us that  trials and unpleasant circumstances will come, but they also have a purpose for our good.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various [c]trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces [d]endurance. And let [e]endurance have its perfect [f]result, so that you may be [g]perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
James 1:2-4

Hope you will join me this year being Un-Stuck.

Being reminded of this today:

"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I came that they may have life, and have it to the full."           

John 10:10 NIV
