About Joys and Trials

"Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me." ~Micah 7:8 (KJV)

New Blog Author

I added Momma (Alice) as a blog author. So now it's a blog for us sisters and our Momma. Momma's a gardener too, and actually has one going in her yard. She's also one of the blog authors for the PCGG blog. Momma and I just started crocheting, literally, as of last night. Momma's going for a pillow cover, and I'm aiming smaller. Starting with a coffee cozy type, but thinking I may do it for my plain glass flower vases. May go for a purple pillow cover later for Ayla's purple pillow, to help keep it clean better, but I'm not ready for that project yet. Hopefully, with Momma posting, the blog will be more active, since Jessa hasn't posted in forever, even with me pestering.
Other than that, not much else going on, aside from doctor visits. Dental for me, vision for me and Sean, followed by dental for Ayla.
Spring is finally starting to catch up here. Not too much green on the trees yet, but flowers are beginning to bloom, and the grass is mostly green.Going to go see the Winter Soldier tonight with my friend Dani. Can't wait, so I can watch the next Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode.
 I hope y'all have a great weekend.


  1. Brandy, check out http://www.maggiescrochet.com/. She has a ton of free downloadable patterns, video instruction, and when you're ready ... patterns for making dresses for the American Girl dolls. :D

    2. Thanks!! I found a lot of free downloadable patterns online. I'm just getting the hang of a double stitch. Will definitely check her site and videos. I'll have to have you teach me sometime. I learn better that way with visual...better viewing angle. lol.
