Folded Paper Basket

As I was updating my mailing list sign-up blurb last week, I realized I hadn't shared any projects for a while.  I found this quick and simple basket on Pinterest the other day, so I thought I'd share it with you.     Setting everything else aside and being creative for a bit, is cleansing for the soul.  This project is quick and easy and will give you a feeling of accomplishment when you're done.  That is something we all need every once in a while.  You will need a 12 x 12 piece of heavy paper.  You can use...

Awesome Days Ahead

Awesome Days Ahead

  Today, I was sitting on my porch having my morning coffee, and talking with God, as I usually do. I was thinking about this blog and asking the Lord how to improve it. It was coming across as a BORING collection of facts. It did not convey the excitement I'm feeling in my spirit about this time of year. So, I asked, "Lord, what do you want me to say?"   Last week I promised to tell you about Rosh Hashanah. So let's start with a little background and some fun facts.    Rosh Hashanah is the start of...

The Joy of the Lord is Your Strength

The Joy of the Lord is Your Strength

This month we have been talking about strength.  One of the first scriptures or phrases that Christians think of when talking about strength is Nehemiah 8:10-"The joy of the Lord is your strength."   We often misread this as joy in the Lord which is rejoicing; to feel or show great joy or delight.  Or we take it as meaning the fruit of the spirit.  That joy is a supernatural byproduct of a close intimate relationship with God.  While joy in the Lord has many benefits, it is the joy of the Lord that gives us strength.   Let's look at what...

Exalted Like the Horn of an Unicorn

Exalted Like the Horn of an Unicorn

But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.   Psalms 92:10 KJV  When I first read this scripture, I thought to myself, " I have no idea what that means!"  If you are thinking the same thing, then this blog is for you.  The previous verses are talking about the fate of the enemies of God.  7 That though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to be destroyed forever. 8 But You, Lord, are on high forever. 9 For behold, Your adversaries, O Lord, for behold, Your enemies...

You Are Stronger than You Think

You Are Stronger than You Think

God has been talking to me about strength recently.   Somewhere along the way, I got the mistaken impression that God wanted me weak. But that just isn't true. Maybe that idea came from wanting to be a princess where the white knight comes and rescues her(love those fairy tale ending romances) Maybe I just didn't want to put in the effort to make myself strong in areas I saw as weak. Some of it come from a wrong interpretation of scripture.  2 Corinthians 12:9  is the one I'm talking about. "But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for...
