Philippians 2:24. Covered In Love. Things I Like.

This post is a bit longer than usual, but I believe you will enjoy a look into my living room.  LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color has a "Things I Like" post every Thursday. She encouraged me to write one, so I'll end this post with a pictorial of Things I Like!  UPDATE:  I just realized this is a linky party - silly me!  Here's the link if you want to join in the fun!

Philippians 2:24.

In this post I wrote about Paul is preparing to send Timothy after he himself finds out the outcome of his trial.  In spite of his serious circumstances, Paul is still confident - in the LORD!  Isn't that where our confidence comes from?  

Yes!  It is!
Saturday morning was spent ministering to a neighbor, helping a friend diagnosed with cancer and having coffee with another friends living with cancer.  It was a wonderful morning of ministry and being ministered to - all at the same time.  

As I walked joyful and carefree in to Wal
-Mart, I tripped and fell right on my left hip and leg.  Somehow right big toe nail got scrapped up as well!

One would think I would have at least fractured my hip after kissing the cement with it, but not even a bruise!  I'm fluffy - so I guess God's hand helped me to bounce!Only my big toe is complaining and swollen.  My nail has decided to begin the process of jumping ship after it's abuse!  :)

After God's angels helped me up, I purposefully and with pain induced tears, praised Him anyway with confidence. I refuse to let even these little things take my joy.  

LORD, You know I am frustrated because I won't be able accomplish all I want to with this big ol' toe of mine, but I still praise You!  You have given me the confidence of knowing my life is in your hands!  Thank you for Paul - for inspiring his words!  
Thank you that we can all have this joy and confidence in You despite our circumstances!

Covered In Love.
Admittedly, I'm a bit intimidated by this cycle's Covered in Love block - but it looks like so much fun! Here is Kat's picture!
 Her tutorials are so well written that I just have to give it it go!  I took the first step - with my husband's help - by pulling the fabric!  
What do you think?
OOPS!  I forgot to post the picture!

I Like #1
My pics are from my living room only because
1) it means minimal walking and
2) the winds are up to 50 miles an hour!  

This is Mia and Sammy.  They never leave my side
especially when I'm under the weather.
Mia is facing the camera - yes, my blog is named after her!
Sammy is camera shy.

A portion of my library.
Books I'm reading/planning to read.

  These little angels are from one of my favorite artists -
Kelly Ray Roberts.

Another Kelly Rae Roberts work of art.
This was given to me when I was undergoing chemo.
The artist is Paula Haynes. 
I love friendly looking owls!
