Cold and Cranky

What a NOT so fun and fabulous day..
I've worked so hard to find the joy in life,
and today I think I lost it under the bed with all those missing socks.
Maybe it's the gloomy weather, or maybe it's my dirty hair or the warm-ups I've slept in and now worn all day... (Please tell me someone else out there does that)
But........ whatever it is- I've just had myself a little pouty party today.
One filled with coffee and Nila waffers.
I've missed my friends today. I miss being able to call up my pals and giggle about all of our latest decorating adventures. I miss the morning coffee with my favorite Nazi (she's not really... we just call her that), dumpster diving around town, Saturday morning garage sales, and the never ending coats of paint on all of our walls 'cause we've found the perfect color.
I do believe, and have the greatest of faith that God is preparing me a perfect passel of decorating divas out there. And I know sometimes in life there are seasons of waiting.
Waiting for God's timing .... Not Ours..
Boy that's the tough part. So..... while I'm waiting
I decided to get some work done today, and remind myself
of one of my very favorite scriptures of all time...........
TRUST in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on YOUR OWN understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge him, and HE will direct your path.
So, while I'm trusting and waiting and drinking too much coffee and eating too many Nila waffers here's a precious little girls first birthday party album I just finished.

Okay! I hope i'm not leaving you like a 1000 comments but yesterday I wrote a wonderful reply to your blog & my computer totally got disconnected so i'm trying again! Just wanted to say that Kristel & I find your blog & photography work so beautiful & inspiring! You are so not the only one that has pj & greasy hair days, totally have those! I hope all is looking up & if not listen to that cute little red head girl named annie...you know the song "the sun'll come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there'll be sun...."

Thanks for stopping at my blog!
I've had days like you talk about too. I like what you had to say about it and the verse you included. The pictures on the bottom are adorable!
