Don't Judge A Find By It's Box

First and foremost....
My blog post looks crazy!
I know it does!!!
It keeps changing my font on my post!!
I don't have a clue why, so I am apologizing in advance!!!
So....how are you all doing?
We're all doing better here.
We've had a really rough go at it these last few months.
We've been under attack
in just about every way you can imagine.

But guess what?
WE are coming out of this life victorious!!!!

What is it they say?

I know cause I've read the end of the book!

And I know how were coming out of this thing!!!
Blessed and Prosperous!!!
Above and not Beneath!!!
The Head and NOT the tail!!!

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11.

So thank the Lord!!!

For your promises are true!!!

And one more thing

Satan still owes me for what he's stolen from me!!!


And I'm tired of walking around here

all down and defeated!!!

Christ came to give us (ME) LIFE!!!

And life more ABUNDANTLY!!!!



I do want to let each and every one of you know

that I am continuously grateful

for all your thoughts and prayers!

And here's a few updates on the fam.

Our son Joey's symptoms are much better at this time.

He has been diagnosed with CMT,

a form of MS

that is hereditary.

But they do not think this is the cause

of his recent neurological symptoms

or the white matter they've found on his brain.

We will be taking him to Vanderbilt

in March for more testing.

He has started back to work at Chucky Cheese

and this is really a great thing for him.

It gets him out of the house

and occupies his mind

and keeps him active.

Also one of our 18 year old son's, Eli,

is being sent to a cardiologist for

some testing next week.

(Actually they have changed his appt. till 1 pm today!)

I think this is just a precautionary measure

for some problems he's been having

lately and to test a murmur they found

a while back.

That is next Tuesday, Feb. 5Th.

Also, my baby sister (she's 30 but always my baby),


has been diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer.

She is having a hysterectomy next week,

February 5Th,

and I would ask for you all

to agree (Matthew 18:19)

with me that this surgery will get

EVERY BIT of cancer out

of her body!!!

And that she will be totally and completely healed!

The year I was a senior in high school,

my Daphne was in 1st grade.

She has always been such a joy to me

and to our whole family.

She's every body's favorite.

She's beautiful, sweet, a wonderful mother, daughter, sister,

wife, and friend!

And outgoing is

an understatement!!!

And she needs us to lift her up!!!

I know she's already healed.

OK, Enough about that stuff,

seems strange after all that...

But I have some Finds I've found at the thrift store

over the last little while

that I haven't shown you!!!

You never know,

sometimes you might just see a box with a

ceramic piece in it

that everybody else has just passed by.

That's $1.91,

I hate the way they price at that thrift store.

But under the cardboard on the bottom

There was the other piece!!!!

I just had to glue it together!!!!

The ribbon can be changed out too!!!

I also got these at the SA. 25 cents each
They look cheerful, don't you think?

I can't help it,
I still love milk glass!!!
I still pick it up when I see it cheap!!
I think it will make a comeback
one day soon!!!
I like this bowl because I could
put ribbon through the holes in the top.
And it this one is a good serving bowl too!!!

Well. thanks for letting me get all that off my chest.
Thanks for all your
support, prayers, and friendship!

Until next time...

Be Blessed


  1. Dear, Dear Carla. I love your endurance and you message to Satan! Way to go girl, you let him know that your not available and don't have time to waist with him.

    I'm new to your blog and had no idea what all you are facing. I will be praying for you and all your family members. I pray that God will give you the strength to see these battles through. I pray he will comfort each of you and draw you near to him. You're love and trust of Christ and his word is beautiful and heartwarming.

    What an amazing person you must be to accomplish so much. 6 children, working and going to school and now with all your many family members to worry and care for, I'm worn out just thinking about it.

    I'm happy to listen if you ever need to vent or just a friend.

    God bless you dear. Warm and loving hugs...Tracy

  2. Oh' yeah I almost forgot. That cake plate was a fabulous deal! I just love it. How pretty would it be to serve Strawberries on with that sweet ribbon. You're right about the markings at thrift stores. They are the same way here, wreckless. I like that polka dotted box.

    Smiles, Tracy :)

  3. Thanks Tracy! I haven't even thought about strawberries but that would be beautiful!!! I'll post pics when I do!!! Maybe choc dipped for Valentines Day!!!

  4. Thank you for stopping by cute blog you have love the green back
