31 Days of Hope - October 26

I'm a day behind again, dear readers, but I'm going to catch up again! I wasn't feeling real well yesterday and went to bed quite early and still didn't get up until 10 am! I think I'm still needing sleep to heal and I just listen to my body and do what I need to do. 

 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD,
plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11

I know I have shared this Scripture more times than I can count but I just have to meditate on it over and over. In fact, I have 3 copies of this Scripture framed next to my bed where I can open my eyes and look at it. It gives me HOPE to know that what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen. is all part of God's glorious plan for me. He has promised that He will be with me through all these things and I have to trust and put my HOPE in Him! Quite frankly, if I didn't have this HOPE, I think I would definitely have a break-down. It is because of Him that I can look up instead of breaking down!

I want to show you something that I sat down and made the other day. It was quite an ordeal making this because I was feeling so bad, but I was determined and knew that if I got it made, I would feel so much better having something joyful to use!

It's my fauxdori! Some of you may not know what this is, but I'll explain. It's a fabric folder (of sorts) that has elastics inside that hold my Moleskin books that my hubby bought me to write in. I didn't take a picture of the inside yet, but I will and will share that on another post. I also made the pen holder on the side. There is a interfacing between the two layers of fabric that give it the sturdiness to use as a fauxdori and then the elastic comes around to hold it closed. I just love it and did you notice what it on that fabric? POODLES! I love this fabric!!!

Praying you're finding HOPE in your day!

Blessings - Julie
