He explained to them what was said in all of the Scriptures concerning Himself. (Luke 24:27)

Children love to hear stories. It is critically important that we build upon this natural response and fill their minds with truths about Christ that will give them a solid foundation upon which to build their lives. Although Sunday schools are important, parental influence and instruction in the home are foundations of Christian education. The stories of Jesus—His birth, His life, His death, His resurrection, His ascension, and His promised return to take us to heaven—for the child of God of any age are always fresh, exciting, and spiritually refreshing. They never grow old.

What have we here??

A hot pink peep on a red book!!! Unfortunately , he disappeared right after this photo was taken. It seems there is a peep fiend around. Posted by Picasa

New book started

I listened to his 1st Dexter book last year and was happy he wrote another. I know it seems crazy to read murder mysteries but I have always loved them. Starting the tangerine hoodie for the Madditude.  Posted by Picasa

Healing rest

Trusting God throughout the day allows us to rest peacefully at night. Fear and anxiety are the chief causes of the tension that leads to disturbed rest. And sound rest is an absolute necessity for the renewing of our bodies, minds, and emotions. Only a peaceful relationship with God and with others allows us this total renewal at the close of each day. We must learn to relax and release our cares and burdens to the Lord and then claim His promised rest.

I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8)

Here it is! Morgan's hoodie

 Posted by Picasa


I think all people have different ideas what heaven will be like. I signed a song at a funeral that says: If you could see me now, walking streets of gold, If you could see me now, standing tall, healed and whole..........

Allow your imagination to anticipate that day in heaven when the entire family of God is gathered for an endless celebration of praise. Allow this glorious hope to brighten your day and to keep you “true, faithful, trusting, serving … ” Sing this musical truth as you go—

When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory.

Happy turtle family

Here are my red turtles. this is one of those things you will now know about me. I collect turtles. I don't know why but I just like them. I think it's because they grow to be very old, they move very slowly, but they get there (kind of like me). This particular set belonged to my step-father, Ron. After he passed away, this is what I asked for.

Remicade Day!!

I almost have the hood finished for Morgan's hoodie. She says she doesn't want sleeves. O.K. by me. I have to go to Greenwood today for my I.V. treatment, so I will go to JoAnn's and get zippers for both of the hoodies. Couldn't find any here in good ol' Martinsville. Will post the pics when finished. Have a great day.

A good read, so far

I started this one yesterday, and so far it is a fairly good book. About a motherless girl growing up in a difficult situation. Early 60's in the southeast. Posted by Picasa
finished this one yesterday. It was pretty good, although, I had it figured out. Posted by Picasa
For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. (1 Thessalonians 4:15)
The calm assurance of a future heavenly home is one of the greatest blessings for every Christian. It has been said that only those with an absolute confidence in their hereafter truly know to live victoriously in this life. Having a personal relationship with Christ means that we need have no fear that we will not hear “the trumpet call of God,” whether we are still alive or asleep in Jesus.

How about a hot pink and white eraser. It almost looks like one of those dreamsicles (if it were orange). In fact, it kind of looks like maybe one of the grandkids may have nibbled on it to see if it tastes good. hahahahahahahahahaha gotta love em. Posted by Picasa

Happy, happy, happy birthday, to you, to you, to you!! Ole!

Here is a picture of our son-in-law. He is my daughter's hunny bunny. He has grown into quite a upstanding young man. Maturing, not only in life but in the Lord too. A mother couldn't ask for a better son-in-law. Happy Birthday Fella!! We love you. (p.s. he and the girl did a right fine job in giving us 4 of our 6 exceptionally wonderful grandkids.)

He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. (Genesis 28:12)

This delightful children's song was inspired by the account of Jacob's dream at Bethel as recorded in Genesis 28:10-22. In this dream, Jacob saw a stairway or ladder resting on earth with its top reaching to heaven, with God's angels or messengers ascending and descending on it.
From Jacob's dream we learn that the gap between earth and heaven can be bridged. Although God revealed Himself in times past to various individuals as He did to Jacob, His full self-revelation required a God-Man, the Son of God in all of His deity and the Son of Man in full humanity to span the mighty gulf. Jesus Christ became the ladder for man to reach heaven and to enjoy even now a restored fellowship with the heavenly Father. Posted by Picasa
Keep this perspective in all you do: As Christians we are merely travelers in this life, moving forward and upward to our heavenly home. Even now, however, we have God’s messengers to help us live victoriously. Give Christ your thanks for making all of this possible.

Let your light shine Posted by Picasa
Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

I do not ask for mighty words to leave the crowd impressed, but grant my life may ring so true my neighbors shall be blessed. I do not ask for influence to sway the multitude; Give me a “word in season” for the soul in solitude.

Good bye

to old trees. The electric company came by and let me know that they were going to have to cut down 5 of the trees at the far end of our property. Then they decided to cut down the old sycamore tree too. It's the white tree behind the brown one. God is the only one who knows how old that baby is. Posted by Picasa

“ … without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” (Hebrews 9:22)

Not all the blood of beasts on Jewish altars slain
Could give the guilty conscience peace, or wash away the stain.
But Christ, the heav’nly Lamb, takes all our sins away;
A sacrifice of nobler name and richer blood than they.
—Isaac Watts

Springtime in the Hoosier State

Hosea 6:3 So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.

Spring rain??? I don't see no spring rain. Welcome to springtime in Indiana.

I had to frog the sleeve I started for the hoodie. That acrylic just was not working out. I bought some Woolease to make it out of. It will be much more spring-like. but now you will have to wait until next month to see it. April's colors are .?.?.? (Project Spectrum)

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14)

Reflect on some particular area of life that with God’s enablement could be lived on a higher level. Use this musical prayer to help—

Lord, lift me up and let me stand by faith on heaven’s table-land; A higher plane than I have found—Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
