God is Bigger Than Our Trials and Tribulations



Good Morning,


Our world has been shaking with the presence of the carona virus. I am sad about the lives that have been loss and the panic seen around the world. We have just cause to be concerned about all we see transpiring around us. There's always a portion of of anxiety about the unknown and I know that it's easier said then done but let's try to relax and focus on getting through it all by God's Grace. I know a lot of people are troubled about what each day will bring but let us focus on the each as it comes. One day at a time. In resting in God we are not saying we have no cares about anything, we are just choosing to relax and trust. Remember EVERYTHING is in subjection to God. Whatever it is he has it in his hands and under his control. Be kind and compassionate and try to help each other. We can calm the fears of many by showing love and praying for one another.

Dear Father in Heaven, We come to you in prayer for your protection oh God from all evil, hurt, harm and danger. Guard us oh Lord and guide, lead and direct us in all we say and do. Protect us from things seen and things unseen. We also pray for traveling mercies as we go out and about it the streets for our basic needs, may we return home safe and sound. Protect our homes oh Lord and keep us save inside. We bind all fear, panic and anxiety and put our trust in you for you said fear is not of you dear God and that we should trust you because Everything is in subjection to your allowance. We know you as the Great Physician and we ask that you will heal those who have gotten sick from this C19 disease, pray for the families who have lost people to this disease and pray that it will be contained and cease spreading to others. We pray for our government, nation, country and leaders. We ask all these things in the name of Jesus........... AMEN

Hold Dear Your Beginning, it's your Journey and Your Story to Tell.

Never forget how and why you started,always be you, never try to be someone else. Develop your approach and your own style. You alone are unique in your own way. Don't stress about elevation or recognition. You will get where you need to be in God's timing. He will raise you up when its your season to reap according to his plan and purpose for your life. Meanwhile keep going, keep pushing, don't give up and pray for strength and clarity. On your Journey Lean not to your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge God and he shall direct your paths.

My Journey in Interior Design Continues...

My decorating journey began in the early 90's watching Country at Home with Mary Emmerling and afterwards Country Style with Michelle Torres on HGTV. When these two shows were no longer being  televised my love for country decor didn't end. I continued to search for all things country and cozy. When Fixer Upper came to HGTV it gave me another show to watch. I loved the way the homes were being revamped and styled. It looked country to me but I learned later that it was branded Farmhouse Style. I loved the look because it gave me the same feel as decorating country. For years I have searched for pieces that would fit within my vision in creating a warm and cozy country space for me and my family to enjoy. My kids are now grown with separate lives and places of their own. Living in this span of time with no more mommy duties to little ones I have more time to explore, create and design.  Oh what a difference when you children are older. This is when you can appreciate more the phrase "Everything in its place and a place for Everything" lol.  







When I create country  vignettes within my home I love that fact that when I leave my home and return everything is just as I left it and I can just sit down, relax and enjoy it. I loved my role as Mom to my babies and continue to love it now in their adult years along with my grandchild. I have always taken pride in my surroundings. You make the best of what you have wherever you live. Your home is what you make it. You work to create what you want to see and enjoy on a daily basis. I love entertaining and having family gatherings. My family and friends have let me know over the years that I had a particular eye for design that not only fascinated them but their friends who would visit our home as well. One of my joys is creating memories for my family and making a home that they would want to bring their friends over to visit.



I am always looking for inspiration. I just purchased Homebody: A guide to creating spaces you never want to leave by Joanna Gaines. Good title choice for the book. It is how I feel about my home and the spaces I have been creating since the early 90's. I am looking forward to reading it because my passion has always been interior designing.

Let There Be Love


Today is the 14th of January one month til love day. I use the word "love" a lot because it's a powerful verb. It describes what my heart holds. It describes how I feel about life and my family. It describes how I feel about God because not only is He the definition of love but he loved me first. Sometimes I am so filled with joy I feel like I could bust. It just comes out of nowhere. I know I am extremely flawed but I know I am blessed inspite of my shortcomings. I don't boast about them because each day I strive to be better. When I catch myself slipping in areas God knows I need to improve I work to correct it and better my actions. It takes much prayer and patience to endure life on a daily basis because no one knows what will happen from one day to the next but you live day by day and try to find the joy in it. You smile, love and try to relax in peace as much as you can. I am learning that you have to grab moments in a day to just sit still and reflect all the while giving God the honor and glory for each moment and for what is and what is not. A month ago we were celebrating Christmas which is my favorite time of year by far but when February draws near I reflect on the fact that I love "LOVE" more than anything. First the love of God and second the love that exudes from human nature. I strive to be more understanding and compassionate. I work to be more forgiving and giving because God has forgiven me and given me so much. I am grateful for my family, friends and life's lessons. I am grateful for each storm God has helped me weather and come through. I may have gotten a little wet be not destroyed.

As Love day approaches I want to encourage you all to love everyday, show compassion, forgiveness, and understanding remembering your own imperfections. Prayer is our weapon against the enemy. He is a joy stealer. When you feel overwhelmed and confused pray harder. When you are struggling knowing you need a way out because what you are involved in is not pleasing to God pray even harder for deliverance and to resist the temptations of the devil.

My mother always stressed to me to not be a follower if anything be a leader. You need not a title or high position in the world to lead others. You can lead others in love, you can lead others to Christ. No, not everyone will like you persay or even want to emulate what they see you do, worry not about that and pray for your enemies and or those who don't like you and leave it there. Always let God handle opposition, never take to much matter into your own hands alone because we need God to fight those battles for all are not battles that we can see with our eyes some are hidden. Don't worry about others, pray for them and do what you can to make your surroundings a better place and those you come in contact with feel loved. Many are searching the world for love you be the place where they can find it. Let love radiate from you. With the Love of God in you you can never go wrong. Love without motive. Love without expectations. Love because God said we should love one another as he has loved us.

As I close this post I wish for you blessings and a safe and happy minute by minute the leads us into another day by the Grace of God.

Hugs,
Sherri Catherine Rose

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!!

Anybody that knows me knows that I love Christmas! Some have deemed me the Christmas Queen. If you ask me how it all began as far as my creativity and love for decorating Christmas will be a part of my answer. As a young girl I could not wait for the Holidays to roll around because I knew that not only was it a time of thanks and gathering with my family it was a time of beautiful bright color lights, snow and Christmas decorations.




I remember the day after Thanksgiving the first Christmas cartoon that television network would show was "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" which at that time wasn't one of my favorites but I watched it to get an early taste of Christmas before my favorites "A Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" would be shown on Tv. Decades later, now a Mother and Grandmother, I bought the  Mr. Magoo's Christmas DVD  and watch it frequently through the year even before the Christmas season begins and straight through the holidays. It's now  a classic to me and my favorite because it takes me back to my childhood where there was lots of joy, anticipation and excitement for Christmas. My parents made every Christmas so special for me that it rooted in me and further fueled my intense love for Christmas. As an adult the tradition of providing a Loving, Joyous Christmas for my family was passed on to me from my Mom. She has often said I have never seen anyone with a love for Christmas like you have.





Mom decorated for Christmas every year and believe me I love it but it just wasn't early enough so I would decorate my room with garlands and lights and a mini tree way before Mom would start decorating the house around the second week of December. When I got married and move out of the nest into my first home I was ready. I love the sight, sounds and smells of Christmas. When late October rolled around I was taking inventory so I could decorate on November 1st. Now decades later with three adult children and one tweener grandchild I have not skipped one beat decorating for Christmas. The only thing that has changed or shall I say increased is the borders that I decorate within my home and the time when I begin which is now mid October. I put so much into it that I need to start early because I am continuously pulling stuff out for weeks. Unlike my childhood where there was one tree present I put up several, right now presently I have three decorated and on display. In the early 90's I grew a love for country design and my Christmas displays expressed my love of Country Style. 


As the years past my spirit wasn't quite satisfied with expressing my creativity decorating wise and I began to decorate my house for each season and various other holidays throughout the year. In 2017 I formed Walk in Creativity and Catherine Rose Creations in order to share my creativity with the world and custom create pieces for others interested in my work. True, you have to have a certain eye when it comes to assembly and presentation when it comes to interior design and whatever I posses I thank God for. Over the years I have gotten many compliments which I humbly appreciate from any and everyone who has seen my decorating style and or work.




It's that time of year again. I type this entry here on my blog one week preceding Thanksgiving 2019. My home is all decorated and I am in full Christmas mode, LOL. Now it's just final preparations being made before my family, Lord willing, gathers at my house for food, fun and family time! I am truly blessed and so are you!



Thank you for stopping by,
Peace and Blessings,
Catherine Rose
