Super plain purse turns pretty cute, by just adding a few small scraps. All you need is a needle and thread. Gather old buttons, scraps of fabric, anything really and make your purse your palette.

This little boy has taught me a lot. I met him the day he was born. Over the last two years because of him, I have learned to ask God what He wants. I have learned how to wait. I have learned how to pray listening prayers. I have learned how God wars for our destinies. I have learned that even disappointment can have a tone of gratitude; the kind that gives thanks in all circumstances. I have learned that the enemy of our souls is very uncreative, yet persistent. I have learned that some breakthroughs only come with strategic and consistent prayer. I have learned the life and future of a small baby can impact many people’s experience with a loving God. I have learned that a refusal to surrender to God’s desires can cause others pain. I have learned that, ” …perseverance must have its way, in order for us to be mature and complete, not lacking anything,” I have learned how to fight for His purposes. I have learned how to defend the cause of the weak. I have learned to trust God’s words and not what I see or hear.

This little boy has taught me that God will go above, beyond, around, under, and through all barriers that thwart His purposes for His children.
