...the good and the bad...

Good news: I made two dresses in two days.

Bad news: I have eight more to go.

Good news: Drew picked up his football pads tonight.

Bad news: Practices start August 1, three nights a week, twenty minutes away. And he has to have a physical first.

Good news: Physicals are Tuesday night.

Bad news: We will be out of town.

Good news: We are going to the beach for four days.

Bad news: The forecast is calling for thunderstorms.

Good news: We found a cheap hotel.

Bad news: The reviews say the hotel is "dated" and "smells of mildew."

Good news: It has free WiFi.

Bad news: We don't have a laptop.

Good news: We leave in two days.

Bad news: I promised a friend two dresses before I leave so she can have them for her beach trip.

Good news: Susan, I got your dress cut out.

Bad news: I can't do it until I get back.

Good news: I did all my laundry today to prepare to pack.

Bad news: None of it is folded.

For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes - the Jew first also the Gentile. This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, "It is through faith that a righteous person has life." Romans 1:16-17 NLT

If I weren't 8 hours away I'd come whip up those dresses for you so you didn't have to stress about them.
Forget the sewing and have fun!

Hmmm... I see something that belongs to me. :) Well, technically it doesn't since I haven't paid for it but...maybe I can come over and get it before you leave?

Sorry about the stress of the dress! :( Have fun at the beach. You are an inspiration to me (if only I could be more like you :) ) Thanks for a reminder of the GOOD NEWS today!

I hope you are all relaxed from vacation. Don't let your neck and back start tensing up at the thought of sewing again, just do it as you can!
By the way I need to know your SKIRT SIZE!!!!
