Proverbs 31

Afternoon Loverlies! I feel as if I've Kind of gotten off track of my posting lately. About a few weeks ago I got a call stating my Grandmother passed. I know my depression was acting up around that time, of course. I just felt so tired all the time. I am still very sad she has passed, but sometimes I just have to remind myself that she is in Heaven now and not in pain anymore. I have decided to start collecting thimbles in memory of her. She always collected thimbles and wherever a family member went on vacation they would always bring her back a thimble. So I thought it would be nice to have a small thimble collection, that way I feel like I would have her there with me. I hope that makes sense. I also took a rose from the funeral and dried out the petals. I just put them on a piece of  card stock ( It think that's what it's called) with the scripture Proverbs 31: 10-31 on it. That is the scripture that was read at her funeral, and I agree that she was everything this scripture describes. I hope someday, that I can be like how my grandma was. It really feels weird saying was, I want to say is. I Love you Grandma Kamy!

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.


An older picture of me with my grandparents.

What I made with the Rose petals. Imma have to find a matte finish to cover it to get rid of the certain glossy spots. and yes I know, I'm not the best with crafts but I tried! I like it! :)
