Teapot Garden Art

  Last month, we started clearing out our garage in preparation for a garage sale. In one of the cabinets, I found some teapots that had been forgotten. I remembered seeing where teapots were used as garden art, so over to Pinterest I went to check out some ideas. Using these ideas at inspiration, I created my own teapot garden art! I saved some of my favorites to this Pinterest board - check it out.  https://www.pinterest.com/jodeeschrlau/garden-ideas/repurposed-recycled-or-salvaged/   The teapot I choose to use had a chipped spout, so I didn't want to sell it in the garage sale. It was made...

Stay-at-Home Advantage: A Clearer View

Now that the weather has warmed up, we were able to take the plastic off of our screened-in porch.  Wow, the world outside looks so much clearer now. It is interesting how much a seemingly clear piece of plastic can cloud the view.  With the cold, rain, and dirt, that once clear piece of plastic had become very cloudy. It happened gradually over the winter, a little cloudier every day, so I barely noticed.  But when Steve ripped down that plastic, all of a sudden, we could see clearly again! The grass is greener, the flowers are brighter, even the...

Prepare for Something New

The way we live our lives is changing. Who would have guessed that toilet paper would be such a hot topic?  (check out my alternative suggestions here) The world we lived in January of 2020 will not be the same in December of 2020.  What is happening now was beyond our imagination, and what's coming is too.   It can be a struggle to stay in peace and trust the Lord.  But as we get beyond the fear that is saturating the atmosphere right now, we can sense God is doing something new.  As we take refuge under His wings, there...

Finding Protection from the coronavirus

Wherever you are, and everywhere you go, the coronavirus is being talked about. Fear is running rampant throughout the world, and coronavirus had been declared a global pandemic. It would appear that Satan is winning this round, when, in truth, he is not. We need to keep in mind God always wins.  Romans 8:28. The Amplified Bible says: "And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose."   So how could...
