Itty-bitty Grows Up

Just a couple pictures today of the fun I’ve been having. {Even I’m not sure if that was a sarcastic statement or not.} 🙂

What kind of crazy sews so many itty-bitty half square triangles? It’s bad enough to sew–and press– 1″ squares, but crazy to cut those into half square triangles and rectangles. #whatwasithinking #gladthatsover  In addition to the needle book and pin cushions, I plan to use most of the others in my sewing machine cover/mat. {Instructions for all coming soon.}

So what do I do? Practice a couple new techniques for Flying Geese– to make a huge, 12″ block, that I don’t have a clue what I’m going do with. They did turn out nice, but I have no plans of making a full size quilt at this time, so… what to do with it?

Juice it Up

Hallelujah Acres promotes a lifestyle of eating that we recommend. Many have had their health restored from nearly every type of chronic disease you can name on their Hallelujah Diet. We’ve recommended and offered their books and Barley Max for many years as great resources to help you eat to regain health.

They are currently doing a program called “60 Days to a Hallelujah Waistline”. Through this program they are sharing daily short video encouragement, and weekly longer video webinars online. This week’s video had excellent information on juicing and green smoothies – why, how, what juicers and such. Same information I’ve shared with you. Just reinforcement from another source. If I’ve not convinced you, take a listen to what they have to say. 🙂

Friday Food?

Well… It’s getting late. I’m tired. And although I thought about it – when I realized I didn’t have a post scheduled – I didn’t have time to actually post one.

It was a mommy day – for teaching, for birthday present shopping and giving, for making food rather than writing about it.

So Happy Birthday to dd#3. 27 years ago today….

Check back tomorrow for a Saturday edition of the Friday Food post. 🙂

Blessing of Babies

Great post from Kelly on hearing enough – from Christians – against babies as blessings. Read the whole article here.  Hath God said:

“Children are a gift from Me…well, for the next 6,000 years or so.  But after that, you brilliant people will come up with a way to stop them from coming.  The easiest way will be with a pill that often causes mood disorders, weight gain, nausea, abdominal pain, cancer and sometimes even abortion. But don’t worry about those, this is my will for you, I just forgot to mention it when the Bible was written.  And when people make rude comments about your sex lives (which I created), you should be ashamed.  I mean, anyone with a brain should be on birth control.”

Our Lord’s Last Day

Our church is presenting the Living Lord’s Supper for our community. It is a powerful representation of Jesus’ last supper with his disciples. The scene is set up like the famous painting of the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. Each disciple introduces himself and wonders if it could be him who will deny his Savior. In-between every couple of disciples’ monologues is a choir or solo/duet piece.

As many of these types of presentations are, it is a family affair for us, with many of us involved. From curtain puller – #2ds looks mighty sharp in that white shirt and black tie 🙂 – #1(at home)dd is helping with make-up, and she and I are in the choir. I also sing a powerful solo. I love this song! and am glad I got the opportunity to present it in this production.

Dress rehearsal was Thursday, Passover night. We had an awesome time of communion together. Our first performance was last night, Good Friday. 2 more to go, tonight and Resurrection Sunday evening. This has made a busy season for our family, but one that has been well worth it. We pray that God, the Author and Maker of all, will touch and convert hearts through the message of the sacrifice of His Only Begotten, sinless Son, for sinful, rebellious people that they might have everlasting life and communion with their Maker, Lord, and Savior.

Have a Blessed Resurrection Day! as you reflect on what our Lord has done for us. It is finished. Salvation has been bought for God’s people.

Listen, as the composers of the song I sing perform it:
