Introducing F2D

Introducing Frazzled to Dazzled

 
 
Bringing handmade, quality items to you one sister at a time!  We have a few select items for sale at this time, with many more to come.  A plan to officially launch our sales in the fall is in full swing!  Until then, we've started a Facebook page to share our vision with yall.
 
Below is a small sample of the items we will have.  Behind the scenes we have plans in motion to add more items like these and many others!  We're thinking and creating along the lines of crocheted and beaded treasures, hair accessories, and home d├ęcor!
 


An etsy shop is very likely in our future along with some local festivals in the fall.  'Local' takes on a different meaning here, as creations are coming to life in more states than one!
 
The heart of F2D is that of two sisters.  Young and old! 


 
Younger ones being busy with school, active cheer and dance stars, and life itself!  Still they can be found helping behind the scenes at different times, with fun down the road with their own awesome creations! 

 
Like, visit, and share our Facebook page with friends (see the link above) and look forward to more great things to come!

Pray Without Ceasing

Been thinking lately?

 
Yeah, me too.
The change of weather seems to have that effect on me.
We've had plenty of that around here.
 
 
I'm learning that there are times God wants us to speak.
Times He wants us to stand.
And there are times to be quiet and still.

 
In the meantime, school days pass by.
'Little' people grow.  In more ways than one.
Our days come in hitches.
The man I love provides more than we could ever need.
Still, I forget that we are blessed beyond belief.

 
There are families starving right now.
We are a minority with the majority.
And as a nation, we don't even know it.

 
We continue to learn from each other.
The more I learn, the less I realize I've known.
The more I know I need my Savior.
To focus on pointing their hearts to HIM while not being distracted by the world.

 
Once lost, now found.
At times thinking I knew every answer.
Not ashamed to tell you I cling to scripture and promises today.
Promises of things I can't always see.
Reminders that God knows what I do not.
Knowing that we never really know the battles others face.
 
God gave me a word today.
Twice.  In a row.
 
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.
(1Thes. 5:17)
 
No conditions.
No questions asked.
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.

 
That means to pick up my shield of faith, the sword of the spirit, and to cover myself in the rest of God's armor.
Tired.  Imperfect.  Unworthy.
Yet blessed by the grace of a God whose clearly speaking.


 
To run with endurance the race that's been set before me.  Eyes only on JESUS, the author and finisher of my faith.
(Hebrews 12:1-2)
Knowing with every piece of my heart that HE is faithful.  That He who began a good work in me, in us, will be faithful to complete it.
(Philippians 1:6)
PRAISE.  WORSHIP.  THANKS.
 
And above all...
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
