Well, I write this as our family is walking through something that requires our immediate attention. Does anything ever go as planned? (smile smile), you know all those plans I had for our summer. My husband and I have 8 children as most of you know and 6 of our blessings were adopted. Adoption is such a precious blessing but the reality is some of our children have come from "hard places" and without the proper care, love, nurture, and counseling these children cannot heal from their past. We have been blessed with some pretty amazing children but each carries different pains from their past that have gotten our attention this summer. Our family is our top priority. I love the call to be each of their Mom! I embrace that role with all I have. With that said, I literally cannot squeeze in time to work on my new patterns and I was adding extra stress to me by pressuring myself to do it. I have come to a place of peace though now and it feels good. I have prayed about what we are going through and about every area of our life. This summer has been difficult but our Father has held us strong and carried us through. Now here are my plans (smile smile): August I will resume finishing my new patterns. Thanks again for all your kind emails. If you have sewn an outfit using SewSensible patterns please don't hesitate to email me! I love to see them and they really inspire others to sew!
Last note: If you are going through something that feels and looks bigger than you please know that you have a Father that is waiting for you to call on Him in your time of trouble or pain and I promise He will show up and carry you through! The song in the last post may spark the fire deep inside of you. I know it empowered me to rise up, stand firm and watch my God fight this what we are going through!
In Christ, Aimee'
