One down... two more to go...

As I sit here, I am feeling the last few hours.   I organized my sewing table, plus some.  I don't know about you, but when I start in on an organizing project, it usually branches out into another area.   This time, it started with my sewing table and branched out the reference books/paints/shoes and entertaining reading part of my closet.  I was able to also take one of my totes off the top of my fabric cabinet.

I wish I had taken before pictures so that you could see the difference, but alas, I didn't.  Here's the new look though...

This is under my sewing/cutting table.  The "sewing" box holds my sewing machine feet and tools on the top section, then hand sewing items on the bottom.


Here is how it looks behind the sewing box.

I am able to store all my thread and ribbons at the table now.  Before I had them on top of the fabric cabinet.



Here are the drawers on the sewing table.   It will be a lot easier to find the stuff I need now.  :)





As I said, it carried over into my closet area.

I was able to get all my paint stuff together and organized by type.

Then I was able to add the books I read, for relaxation, to the shelf and also move my tote for beading off the top of the fabric cabinet to the bottom shelf in the closet.   I threw out three pairs of shoes and organized the rest in the baskets.

I thought I was pretty organized before, but I am even more so now. :)

 MAKING IT VERY CLEAR

I have mentioned the "viper" in my blog before and how that individual is difficult to get along with.  I have even upgraded the person to "tyrant" in a recent blog.

The last couple of days, the Lord has been dealing with me about this individual.   Here's the thing, I got along with this individual quite well, before I saw their true colors.  Since then I have done my best to have nothing to do with that person. I don't dislike them, I just don't want to deal with them. 

Well, the Lord works in mysterious ways... today, I had a couple opportunities to mend my ways and be cordial to the said individual, instead of ignoring them.   However, I did not take those opportunities.

So this evening the Lord made it very clear to me.   I happened to turn to a scripture, I was not looking for...

The Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kindly to every one. ~ 2Timothy 2:24

Though I have not been quarrelsome, I have not been kindly.    I must mend my ways, I know this because I don't want to go through another day of the Lord touching my heart, letting me know He is not pleased.

My prayer:   Father forgive me for shunning the person, whom I have lost respect for.   I know that I do not hate the person but do very much dislike the actions they display.   Help me to look beyond the actions and to remember You love that individual as much as You love me and that they need You as much as I do.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If the Lord is dealing with you, please take it to heart and make amends where you need to.

Have a great Wednesday!!

God bless and keep you,
Sonia
