Where Bloggers Create Party

I am so excited to be a part of this years Where Bloggers Create party.
My blog is a very humble blog with a big heart.  For the last 2 years I have eagerly awaited this party.
I love looking at creative spaces.  I have every issue of Where Women Create and re-read them
often.  When Karen first started this party I was thrilled.

I'm so glad you stopped by to visit.  There are more pictures on
my flickr.   Have a great day and enjoy everyones pictures.

Creative Restoration

After going through the scare of my married life I have needed to reconnect to my creative side.
I have been so afraid of making a mistake in my husbands care.  Fixing the wrong food. Kicking him
in my sleep.  Not doing the right things.  Fear of getting in a wreck while driving him to Dr appts.  It's been
overwhelming soooo.  I made myself go Create.  Ahhh, no rules, no mistakes, just play.  It has really been

creative restoration.  Here are some things I have been working on.

I also need to work on cleaning up my studio.  There is a blog party coming up.  Here are a few pictures
of the mess. 

Well, gotta go find something to fix for dinner.  If you have any heart healty recipes for picky eaters I
would love to have them.

Answered Prayers

There has been some major happenings in the Polly household.  2 weeks ago tonight my mother in law took a tumble and broke her hip.  She is now in a nursing home recovering. 
3 days later my husband went in for an angiogram for chest pains and was informed that he had
two arteries completely blocked and would be immediately scheduled  for bi-pass surgery.
  To say that my world was rocked would be putting it mildly.  My husband is my best friend and
any thought that I might lose him is unthinkable.  I fell apart.  Then I turned our lives over to God.
I have a friend at church that once told me that she has to constantly throw her son on the alter of
Christ.  Those words came back to me.   So, I took my beloved husband and threw him at the feet of
Christ.  This crises was not in my control.
  3 hours after surgery my husband was cracking jokes.  They had him sitting up and standing.
5 days later he was able to go visit his mother.  God has answered my prayers.  He is doing so good.
This has taught me to again, put my trust in God.  For all problems, every challenge we go through there
is a reason.  God has a purpose.   Trust Him!!!!
