MERRY CHRISTMAS

MERRY CHRISTMAS



And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
 keeping watch over their flock by night. 
  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, 
and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: 
and they were sore afraid. 
 And the angel said unto them, 
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, 
which shall be to all people. 
 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, 
which is Christ the Lord. 
 And this shall be a sign unto you; 
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 
lying in a manger. 
And suddenly there was with the angel 
a multitude of the heavenly host 
praising God, and saying, 
Glory to God in the highest, 
and on earth peace, good will toward men. 
 And it came to pass, 
as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, 
the shepherds said one to another,
 Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, 
and see this thing which is come to pass, 
which the Lord hath made known unto us. 
 And they came with haste, and found
 Mary, and Joseph, 
and the babe lying in a manger. 
  And when they had seen it, 
they made known abroad the saying 
which was told them concerning this child. 
 And all they that heard it wondered at those things 
which were told them by the shepherds. 
  But Mary kept all these things, 
and pondered them in her heart. 
  And the shepherds returned,
 glorifying and praising God for all the things 
that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. 
Luke 2:8-20



He was in the world, and the world was made by him, 
and the world knew him not. 
He came unto his own, 
and his own received him not. 
  But as many as received him, 
to them gave he power to become the sons of God, 
even to them that believe on his name: 
John 1:10-12


Wishing each of you 
a wonderful Christmas
blessed by His presence.

A Good Thanksgiving





A GOOD THANKSGIVING

Said old gentleman Ray on a Thanksgiving Day:
“If you want a good time, then give something away.”
So he sent a fat turkey to shoemaker Price,
And the shoe maker said: “What a big bird! How nice!
With such a good dinner before me I ought
To give Widow Lee the small chicken I bought.”
“This fine chicken, oh, see!” said the sweet Widow Lee,
“And the kindness that sent it – how precious to me!
“I’ll give washwoman Biddy my big pumpkin pie.”
“And, oh, sure,” Biddy said, “ ’tis the queen o” all pies!
Just to look at its yellow face gladdens my eyes!
Now it’s my turn, I think, and a sweet ginger cake
For the motherless Finnigan children I’ll bake.”
Cried the Finnigan children, Rose, Denny and Hugh:
“It smells sweet of spice, and we’ll carry a slice
To little lame Jake, who has nothing that’s nice.”
“Oh, I thank you and thank you!” said little lame Jake;
“What a bootiful, bootiful, bootiful cake!
And oh, such a big slice!  I’ll save all the crumbs,
And give them to each little sparrow that comes.”
And the sparrows, they twittered, as if they would say,
Like old gentleman Ray: “On a Thanksgiving Day,
If you want a good time, then give something away.”

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:15 




To all my faithful followers,
I am sorry that I have been absent for a while.
Sometimes life gets in the way of what we want to do,
but I am richly blessed and thankful
for all my wonderful Lord is doing for me.


Here’s wishing you and your family many

THE SECRET OF FEARLESSNESS


Of all the memorials in Westminster Abbey, 
there is not one that gives a nobler thought than
that inscribed on the monument to Lord Lawrence...

simply his name, with the date of his death,
and these words:

"He feared man so little, 
because he feared God so much."



It was said of D. L. Moody that
he was humble as a child before God 
and as bold as a lion before men.


Great examples of how we should live our lives!


Sharing a few of my recent cards:










Sunday, August 6, 2017

Sorry that I am so irregular with my posts.
Lots of things have been happening.  
I just had my kitchen redone.
I have been very busy making cards 
and rearranging my craft room.  
They sound like good excuses to me!
So much for that....


Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
1 Corinthians 16:13  


Faith looks back and says,
"Christ died for me."
Above and cries,
"He lives for me,"
Forward and whispers,
"He comes for me."


He is coming!
This message should thrill all Christians.
He is coming for all those who love Him and look for His appearing.
His coming is closer that most of us realize.
May we all be ready and watching.


  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, 
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: 
and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together 
with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: 
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18


A few of the cards I have been making:

  

  




Have a blessed week!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY



On this Independence Day
as we celebrate the freedom of the USA,
remember the greatest freedom
was bought on Calvary!
