Wings As Eagles: What's been going on?!?!

What's been going on?!?!

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything here, but these last couple of weeks have been rather crazy. It's always a little hectic trying to get caught back up on things after being gone for two weeks at camp. And then I caught some kind of cold or flu going around which decided to stay around for a week and still hasn't left completely.

Over the last couple of weeks since posting anything, I've been catching up from camp for my business, cleaning house and catching up with things in the kitchen after being gone, typing and taping quilt lessons for August's lesson, quilting my pink MJE quilt, taking care of Skittles' kittens (she finally had them; I'll post pics soon!), embroidering shirts for an August deadline, sewing alterations and whatever else that needed attention.

In addition to that, sneezing, coughing, feeling terrible, lack of energy, taking naps and everything else that goes along with being sick. I thought colds were not supposed to be around in the summer, but I guess I found out otherwise. Thankfully Jena and Dad have not caught it for which I am truly grateful.

God is trying to teach me something, if not anything but patience. As I reflect over the last couple of weeks, which in my opinion would be one of the worst times out of the entire year to be sick and unable to do anything, I kept thinking that God knows the situation I'm in. He knows my to-do list. He knows my business and sewing deadlines. He knows how terrible I felt and impatient to be feeling better. He knows, understands, cares and allowed this to happen. Why? I'm not entirely sure, but I can see areas of my life that I need to change and sometime it takes something dramatic before I can really see those things.

So in a few short's been a long, hectic and exhausting couple of weeks! But I'm on the mend (hopefully!!) and am trying to get back into a full schedule this week! I'll be catching up with some posts I had written a while back and am just now posting...
