New Friend Friday: Most Embarrassing Moment!

The Girl Creative
It's hard to pick only one most embarrassing moment!  I could tell you about the time I asked my neighbor about her pregnancy only she wasn't pregnant! or As a youth worker trying to show some middle school girls the proper way to do a roundoff, only to fall on my bottom and fracture my heel!
Nope I got it I'll share how a few short years ago, we took several van's full of Middle School and High School students on a video scavenger hunt!  As a driver I didn't have to participate but we were having so much fun and I luv being a part of the youth games so I thought why not! The task was to hang upside down, sing the national anthem to the tune of Giligan's Island.  No problem right!  Well lets just say, I should have listend when R said.... I don't think this is a good idea... you don't have to do this...  and it's all caught on tape!  (Her warning too!)  Needless to say I didn't listen, I went to the three tired bar thingy, chose the lowest one (thinking I would be safe, HA!) and proceeded to gently lower myself backwords to hang upside down.... only my hands skipped and I fell!  I fell Hard hitting my head on the ground trying not to cry, cause it hurt.  The kids all got quite, I know they wanted to laugh it was funny!  Painful but Funny! So I laughed so they knew they could!  Since this was all caught on video a few weeks later it was nicely (NOT!) edited to look as though I repeatedly fell, hitting my head.  I did get a hard hat out of it! :)  Wonder where that video is?  HMMMMMMMMMM! 
What's your most embarrassing moment? 

Have a Beautiful Day!

Kristen over at We are That Family... has really inspired me to not just read about it but to actually do something about all the children who need more!   So Today after searching the Compassion Site: Here I knew that with out a doubt I had to pick a child to help, to sponosr.  Looking at their faces, and in their eyes, and my heart aches for them.  I wish I could bring them all home and love them.  So after picking a country, I chose Ethiopia, I found Tsion: 
Isn't she BEAUTIFUL! 

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. …
Defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Proverbs 31:8-9

I am excited to recieve my packet and picture of her in the mail and have already began thinking about what to write to her.  Is it possible to feel love for a child that is not your own, never having met them?  I think so!

Still not convinced Read Kristen's Africa Story, with Compassion Intl.

Have a Beautiful Day!

P.S. Do you Sponosr a Child? Tell me your Story!

What I've been up to lately!

Hello Blog world!  So I have had a few busy weeks, with the Women's Retreat, and MR C and KJ in the Community Theater production of Alice in Wonder Land Jr.  but with all that I've still been able to craft a little! :)  I like crafts!  But I really love Quick Crafts!  I have found a few that I liked on some other Blogs the first resulted in only one injury, and I did not get any blood on  it I promise!  It did hurt!  I made this really cute: Check out her blog for some easy to follow directions on how to make it! 
I am not sure the picture really shows how cute this necklace and bracelet are!  I had so much fun I am thinking of making my mom one for mothers day (shhhh!), and maybe another to give away at the next Women's Ministry Dinner & a Movie (June 4th)

Then I found this really cute this is a gift for my mom for mothers day, and we made them last night in Girls Group.  I gotta tell you the middle school girls loved them! And they were so easy to make you just need a few basic supplies, all things you can get at Wal-Mart  (See the pictures below)

First go to Wal-Mart and get some Badge/Id holders ($1.88 for a package of 12), then gather your other supplies like ribbon, scissors, scrapbook paper, pictures... I used a business card as a template to cut my scrapbook paper.  Decorate to your liking.  After you've made as many cards and placed them in the Badge/Id holders stack them together and use ribbon to keep them connected. Like this:

I can't show you the inside, my mom might be reading the blog and I don't want to ruin the surprise! 

Ok here are a few photo's of the Musical: 

Gosh they make a momma proud! 
Have a Beautiful Day!

True Love

I have I told you how much I LUV This guy?  I had to post one more for you!  Listen as he shares an amazing true story of God's Love for us! And What a perfect song for Easter as we Celebrate the Death and Most Importantly the RESURECTION of Our Lord!

Happy Easter! May you know the LOVE of our Savior!

Safe: Phil Wickham

I have a new favorite Christian Artist: PHIL WICKHAM!  I am totally loving his songs, I am not sure how I haven't heard of him before!  I was listening to K-Love a few weeks ago, and I heard this song SAFE, and it really spoke to me. As I listened to the words of the song, I felt as if it was written just for me!  I felt Safe and free from those burdens I was holding on to, and when I truly listen and meditate on these words I weep. To know that I am safe in His (GOD's) arms brings a peace that can not be explained. So Friday night I was online looking up Phil Wickham and watching some of his songs on youtube, and the more I heard the more I wanted to have his album.  So at 11 pm Friday night MR C and I drove into town to our local Wal-mart  with the hopes that they would have his CD, they didn't and since it was so late I wasn't feeling comfortable enough to into Wichita, I bought an I-tunes card and downloaded his most recent CD and a few other songs from other CD's he has out.  I have't heard one song of his that I didn't like.  LOVE! So Enjoy this Song!

Want the Lyric's:
To the one who's dreams are falling all apart
And all you're left with is a tired and broken heart
I can tell by your eyes you think your on your own
but you're not all alone

Have you heard of the One who can calm the raging seas
Give sight to the blind, pull the lame up to their feet
With a love so strong He'll never let you go
oh you're not alone

You will be safe in His arms
You will be safe in His arms
'Cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made
He will be with You always
When everything is falling apart
You will be safe in His arms

Verse 2:
Did you know that the voice that brings the dead to life
Is the very same voice that calls you to rise
So hear Him now He's calling you home
You will never be alone

These are the hands that built the mountains
the hands that calm the seas
These are the arms that hold the heavens
they are holding you and me

These are hands that healed the leper
Pulled the lame up to their feet
These are the arms that were nailed to a cross
to break our chains and set us free

Hope you feel safe in His arms!
Have a Beautiful Day!
