Freebie Friday............

Dinner table talk about God........

A few ideas to help start some good family conversation about God without pressure.   Even if you dont answer them at that moment... its a good way to get the family 'thinking'.............


1)  
Why do we obey God's commands.....does it matter what we do ... and why?2)  Do our prayers make a difference?
3)  How can we know God's will for our lives?4)  How do I love my neighbor as myself?

God Bless

This particular ripple afghan I made for a special young man.  A dear friend of mine's son is in the Navy.   His mom and dad greeted him as he set foot back in the States a couple weeks ago from his deployment.   He will be coming home here for a short time on leave then back to the Military Base he's stationed at here in the states.
Next weekend he will be greeted in the streets with flags and love in the little town his family lives in.    God Bless him for serving our country!

I made this "Military Ripple'ghan to give him when he's here on leave!
I'm super happy with how it came out!   I cant wait to see him and give this to him!

hugs... love & blessings to all

Living for God...... He has a plan for you......

God has a plan for you. You know what it is? He wants to make you like himself. Not only will that bring him glory, it will bring you satisfaction. But what does it mean to be like him, and how does it happen?

"And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." (Micah 6:8)
Being godly means living a life that pleases God—acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with him. The key, though, is the walking part. It's only when we walk with God in a relationship with him that we're able to do what's right and love others. As we spend time getting to know him, he changes us. The change comes as we see how awesome God is and how we, with all our imperfections, pale in comparison. It comes as we learn that God became a man—Jesus Christ—just so he could die a painful death to save us from our sin. And what is our response? Amazement? Gratitude? Yes, but it has to be more than that. God wants us to be totally devoted to him, in much the same way you probably dream about being devoted to a husband or wife some day. Because of your love for that person, you'll want to spend time with them and you'll do nice things for them—not because you have to, but because you really want to. When we have this kind of devotion to God, the things we do for him won't be a chore to dread. They will become something you look forward to doing. Not only will that be more pleasing to God, you'll like it better too!

"Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." (Psalm 37:4)
To find any joy in a relationship with God, you have to agree that he knows what's best for you. You'll never find much "delight" in him if you're always fighting him.
He says to us, "I have a great plan for you, one that will be greater than anything you could ever dream." And we say, "I'm too scared to trust you," or "No thanks, I can have fun without you."

What's something you know God wants you to do (love others, study his Word, pray, etc.) that you're not doing? What's your reason for not doing this?
Ask God to help you trust that his desires for you will ultimately bring you the most joy.

God Loves you.......... believe it... trust Him!!
hugs... love .. & blessings

Last night was our High School Homecoming Dance.
Here is Patrick and his clean and shiny Jeep.   I helped him wash and buff the outside... then we vacuumed and cleaned the inside.  He's ready to pick up his date and have a lovely evening.   YES......... I cried!!!  Hush!!!


Patrick and his girlfriend K along with another couple went up to the winery where Patrick works for a Fire grilled pizza dinner.
They stopped at the house here for me to have my 'mommy picture moment' before they went to the dance.  I cant believe how grown up he is.... *sigh  

Patrick and K


Patrick and K .... Jesse and Kayla



They had a great time... and I apparently lived through it.
