...was my first day in 43 days without a full on migraine!  I am taking a new migraine medication that still leaves me feeling drugged but pain-free.  I am hoping that my body will adjust to the medication and I won't feel so drugged so I can cope with life a bit better.  I do not think I am out of the woods yet because I have had one day without a headache but I do think I am seeing the light!

I wanted to thank you for praying for me as I have gone through this.  I have felt your prayers and your love!

I saw this fabric at the fabric store earlier in the week but didn't purchase it because I couldn't decide what I use it for.  I am practical like that.  I haven't been able to get these cute little chubby children out of my mind but for the life of me I couldn't think of what to do with it.  This afternoon my mom stopped by to pick up Emma for the night and asked me if I wanted to go with her back to the fabric store but I still had no creative spark.  Over an hour later I felt like I got hit with a brick when I realized I could make a bag/diaper bag out of it.  I am not sure what type of fabric it is exactly because I found it in the remnant bin with all of the canvas and upholstery material but it isn't quite that heavy but sturdy enough to make a bag.  I happened to figure this out at the right time because my mom was able to swing over to my house after she had run some errands and take me with her to the fabric store during it sale.  It was still there probably because I had stuck it in the bottom of the pile hoping no one would find it while I got my creative juices flowing.  I was also able to find a contrasting fabric to line it with but now I am stuck with another creative dilemma.  What kind of bag should I make?  How big should it be?  How many pockets?  Who should it be for?  It sure is hard to think creatively when you have a 23 day headache and are on pain meds and steroids.  I am wondering if I should hold off doing anything with it until my mind is clear again.  But that doesn't help keep my hands busy and I am wanting a project right now while I don't feel good.  Dilemma's dilemma's.

My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less!

The truth of this song is like a healing balm to me. 

My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less
By: Edward Mote

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteous;
No merit of my own I claim
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils his lovely face,
I ret on his unchanging grace;

In every high and story gale
My anchor holds within the veil.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

His oath, his covenant, his blood
Sustain me in the raging flood;
When all supports are washed away,
He then is all my hope and stay.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When he shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in him be found,
Clothed in his righteousness alone,
Redeemed to stand before the throne

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

I italicized the words that especially ministered to me this day.
