You guys..... I've just realized that I haven't even posted an update since MARCH!!!
I've been more active on my Jewelry (NotesNBling) Facebook page, as my lil business has been growing through events we had this year thankfully.
Now with the busy fall and holiday shopping season coming about, I thought I should at least update everyone on the shows where I'll be.
Music wise it's been very quiet. Several reasons.... lots of them personal and private which I don't want to share. However I'll be picking up my guitar again and then see where the Lord leads or if that season of my life is done. That is up to Him as I'm determined to serve Him, hear Him, listen to Him and then follow where He leads without me creating or striving for anything. These are times where hearing from the Lord and being still before Him are vital!,
In a way I'm really sad that I haven't posted about all the events I've been at this year so far. Starting with a wonderful show in McHenry County in the Chicago area, little shows here, the absolutely AMAZING Munsinger Gardens Art In The Park event, that blew me away! What a response to my jewelry! THANK YOU to all!
Then we had the Annual Old Creamery Craft Show in Rice which coincides with the Little Falls Craft Show. Always love it there and met SO many wonderful new people! It's been cool.
Now - second weekend in October it'll be time for my Annual Open House again and as last year, it'll be in my backyard under my event tent, with chairs to hang and visit on the deck. You have to email me (email@example.com) to get the address if you are planning to attend. Stay up with more news and pictures of all my new jewelry on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/notesnbling.
Then many other shows are to follow for the holiday season I'm looking forward to being a part of (see picture of my schedule).
WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:
Short and sweet: Trust the Lord, REMAIN in His LOVE, do NOT FEAR, keep serving Him and keep your eyes upon Him.
Belief vs Unbelief:
The Greek word "pisteuo" means "believed".
to be firmly persuaded as to something to believe with the idea of hope and certain expectation. (pistes - faith)
We stay firmly persuaded of what Christ has done on the cross! We have hope and have a certain expectation of being with Him for eternity if we do not shrink back, nor fear.
The Greek Word "apistos" means "unbelief".
not worthy of confidence, untrustworthy, a thing not to be believed, incredible.
Now that's NOT how we want to regard our Heavenly Father. He is worthy of ALL of our confidence, ALL of our trust and most of all He is to be BELIEVED!
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him and rescues them.
O taste and see that the Lord is good, how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.
O fear the Lord you His saints; for those who fear Him there is no want.
The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but they who seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good thing.
Do not be afraid of sudden fear, nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes; For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.
If Jesus is not your Lord and Savior, He will hear your prayer of repentance and confession of sin right wherever you are. You don't have to go to anyone or be in a certain place to ask for forgiveness and receive Christ as your Redeemer and Savior.
You don't have to say a formulated prayer or do complicated things. Just from your heart to His ear - simply and humbly.... Receive His forgiveness, accept His sacrifice for your sin and then be obedient to Him and humbly walk with your Lord.
Love you all! Keep shining His light!

Psalm 100 Scripture
1 Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.
3 Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
5 For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.
