All That, for Me

"Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him". 1 Corinthians 2:9

The world's wisdom says: Life on this earth is as good as it gets. But God's Wisdom says: "You ain't seen nothen yet!"

I can not begin to imagine what God has in store for us. We talk about mansions, and streets of gold, but I know this is such a small thing compared to what awaits us, it is just all our little minds can understand. Eternity with the Saviour of my soul is more than I can grasp!(:

Homemade Gifts

We have a newlywed couple at our church and we, the ladies, wanted to do something special for them. We have been working on a cook book. A friend of mine gave me the idea. It has been a lot of fun! Most of the work was done on Publisher and Excel. The photo album has a thick plastic cover, over canvas, which will keep it clean, as do each page. The picture in the center is a oil pastel drawing of grapes. On the second page is a photo of the couple, all of the lady's signatures are around it . There is also an index page to list all of the yummy recipes. We have a Bread, Main Meal and Dessert section; you could do a lot more, but we are a very small church. There are also bible verses and cooking tips scattered throughout the book. Also there is a picture, with each recipe and serving suggestions, so she will know what each dish looks like and what is good to serve with it. I like cook books with pictures! In the back is some pictures and instructions on: napkin folding, table setting and quantities for feeding crowds. It is so much more fun making gifts than buying them. (:
Well I am almost finished. What do you think? I was going to do a pink back, but there was no pink to match the background. I went to cutestblogontheblock.blogspot, to get my page. There is a few things I still want to do but have not figured them out yet.

"He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver: nor he that loveth abundance, with increase." Ecclesiastes 5:10

The world's wisdom says what we have is what matters ,but God's wisdom says who we are is what matters.

When we begin to look for fulfillment in an overflowing shopping bag, we should be aware that the bag has a hole in the bottom! Don't store up more than you truly need, in the end it will just be more work to care for and you will have to buy containers to store it in. Even if you got a good deal at the store, Goodwill, yard sale or the thrift store do you really need it. :)

Something to think about- How might you begin to cultivate an attitude of gratitude rather than greed?

Who are you? I pray a child of God, If not I pray by faith you will receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. He will save your soul and you will know it. Read Ephesians 2:8, Romans 10:13, John 1 :12, 1 John 5 10-13

Our Purpose

What is our purpose in this life? That is a question many people ask. We as God's children know what our purpose is ,to do the will of the father. I was reading Isaiah 43:7 " Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him." We were made to bring glory to God!

* Glory means to give the world (saved and lost) a correct opinion or estimate of who God is and what he is like. Wow! do we, do I, give the world a correct opinion of God when they see me at work, play, in difficulties and struggles, just in my every day dealings. Do we make people think God is sad, downcast, mean, unforgiving, rude, selfish, or do we show he is joyful, loveing, forgiving, kind, never selfseeking. I do not mean to say that we are not to stand for the truth, for God is not only a God of love, but of rightousness. His wrath will come upon those who reject him, we need to warn the world. But do we show the truth out of love for a lost world or out of hate and pride. Ephesians 2:8-9"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves : it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." May we each bring glory to God in everything we think, do and say. ( :

(For we walk by faith, not by sight :)

II Corinthians 5:7

I don't know if anyone has ever noticed this, but there is a smiling face at the end of the verse, in the KJB. God is great! He is always up to date and people think he is not in touch with today's world. Remember to keep a smile on your face. We should be the happiest people on the planet :) Photo taken by a friend.
