"We can't let fear steal our joy"

I was talking to Elizabeth last night and she asked me, " Mommie What if it is cancer?" She tends to call me Mommie when she is frightened. My little girl..

I put my arms around her and let her cry. I said, " We will deal with it one step at a time. But you can't let fear rule your every waking moment and steal your joy."

She said that was true and she would try to trust God that everything will be alright. I will also trust God that everything will be alright. I had to think and pray about my feelings of being overwhelmed with sorrow. With my feelings of fear of what could be wrong.

I have to trust God in this situation. I have to believe for the best.

Yesterday and today I got all of the packages out to my dear friends who won necklaces and bracelets. I also got a few surprise packages out to some dear friends.

I made a necklace that promises of Spring..That goes to a friend who needs it. I made a bracelet that reminds me of the ocean on a warm Summer day. That goes to a friend who needs that promise of new days and new dreams.

When I focus on creating it helps take my mind off what is going on. I made Elizabeth a bracelet with stars on it. A lucky bracelet..It has silver seed beads and it looks like the stars are floating on it.

I send everyone love today..and hope.

xoxo Nita

This is why I love you so, you always think of others no matter what, and make yourself a star bracelet too, cause your Elizabeth is your star, and above the stars is where our Lord is. Please tell your sweet Elizabeth that we are all praying for her, and please keep me posted so I can go to church and light a candle for you both! I love you sweet friend....
Hugs to you both~

Been so busy with my sister being here that I have missed out on the things you have been going thru, once again you amaze me by your strength for yourself and more importantly for Elizabeth. You have lots of people out here praying for you two.

A very beautiful song and I just know things are going to be alright with Elizabeth especially with that token of love made by her mom to remind her to be warm my heart with your sweet spirit.

Sending you love and keeping you in prayer ~
