Sunday Spiritual - Prayer

A simple prayer





Hi Lord, it’s me.

We are getting older and things are getting ...bad here.

Gas prices are too high, no jobs, so much corruption, food and heating costs too high. We've lost the way. I know you were taken out of our schools, government and even Christmas, but Lord I'm asking you to come back and re-bless America ..

We really need you! Badly.

There are more of us who want you than those who don't!
 
Thank You Lord, I Love You.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

 
 
"Life without God" is like an unsharpened pencil - 
it has no point!

Sleeping in - Saturday

It's Saturday and I am so glad 
the work week is over! Whew!!!

I actually slept in today! Until 8:30!!!

Last night I laid in the bed and starting deleting old blog posts. After years they pile up on you! LOL
It had been over two years since I deleted any. I only mad a small dent in clearing them out, but at least I started! 

This morning I have added more shops to my CAPS Team page. I started to revamp it a couple of weeks ago.

I need to revamp the "Helping others" page because one of them died. It just makes me sad to take her down from the page. I will do it. She is in a better place.

One of my items is featured here today

Please stop by and comment on Linda's blog.

She's showing a product of mine

Swiffer Covers, Hand Knit, Set of 2 for 7 dollars

 http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/ChristieCottage/7105665

 There are more listed. 

Colors vary. 

I am either too poor or 

so frugal 

that I won't buy disposable swiffer covers.

I even use them on my swiffer to run along the ceiling fan blades.


I dampen them and damp mop the floor too if I spill a drink.

I love it that you can take them off and wring them out. Just throw them in the washer and dryer.


Thanks Linda for the "shout out" on your blog today!

......


The lawn mower wants me to take it for a walk so... off I go!

Have a great weekend!

Fall, autumn mountain landscape fiber art with a tree. The colors in the mountains are shades of rust, orange and gold. Two lines of stitching hold the card together and give it a different look. Handmade quilted fabric postcard by Linda Johnson at Sew Upscale. Mail it to a friend and when received, since it is a piece of art, it can be framed and kept forever.

Frame it, mail it, or stand it on an easel. I'll even put a magnet on the back upon request. It would really dress up your refrigerator or file cabinet.

The last picture shows how 3 cards could be grouped together and framed.

Details--
*4” by 6” quilted fabric postcard
*Stitched on the edge with rust colored thread.
*Can be mailed in the clear mailer provided.
*Colors are shades of red, orange,copper, rust, green and blue.
*The back is a white fabric that can be written on with a fine line permanent pen.
*Created by using layers of fabric and stitching each layer.

Each quilted fabric postcard is individually made with much attention to detail.

Send this quilted postcard as a greeting card for any occasion: Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, birthday, graduation. When it is received, it can be framed or displayed on an easel and kept forever. Send this postcard art quilt to remind a friend of a special outing or evening.

Sunday Spiritual - God's Accuracy

We have an amazing God!

How Great is our God!!! Our Creator and Redeemer . . . and do we THINK about it ??? God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.. . . . ..For example: the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; those of the canary in 14 days; -those of the barnyard hen in 21 days; The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; those of the mallard in 35 days; the eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant.
The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four  fulcrums so  that it can rise from the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!

God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains .

-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
-Each orange has an even number of segments.
-Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
-Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
-Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.

-The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.

-All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed !

The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end.

I HOPE YOU FIND THIS AS FASCINATING AS I DID. May God Bless You In Ways You Never Even Dreamed. I didn't think twice about forwarding this one.

The Bible
When you carry the   Bible , Satan has a headache, when you open it, he collapses, when he sees you reading it, he loses his strength, AND when you stand on  the   Word of God , Satan can't hurt you! And did you also know...


When you get ready to forward this, the devil will get very upset and try to talk you out of doing it .... Do it anyway, you will be glad you did.

Faith is not believing that God can,
it is knowing that God will.

 Christmas Cards Handmade Set of Ten With Ornaments

http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/luvncrafts/9692293/christmas_cards_handmade_set_of_ten_with_ornaments/handmade/cards/christmas

Product Description
This is a set of ten handmade Christmas cards.

I cut these from white card stock.

The front of each card is covered in a piece of blue paper that has a Christmas ornaments pattern.

On top of that is a white scalloped die cut with the hand stamped message, "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year".

Across the bottom of each card runs a green fabric ribbon with ruffles.

There is an ornament sticker attached to each card as well as a green paper flower with a red bling gem at it's center.

All the cards are the same expect the one in the next to last picture. I cut more paper to put on the cards and cut it with the pattern the wrong way, so this cards opens differently from the others.

These are blank inside and come with envelopes.

The cards measure 4 1/4" by 5 1/2".

Made in my smoke and pet free home.

 

Black, White and Grey Mini Thank You Cards Set of 26

http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/luvncrafts/9669031/black_white_and_grey_mini_thank_you_cards_set_of_26/handmade/cards/thank_you

Product Description
This is a set of 26 handmade mini thank you cards.

I hand cut these from white card stock. The cards are 2" by 2".

The top front of each card is covered in a gray paper with a black vines and butterflies pattern.

The bottom half is covered in black paper.

Running across each card is a band of black washi tape with a hearts pattern.

The hand-stamped message "Thank You" is attached to the front of each card.

These are blank inside and do NOT come with envelopes.

You can write your own message inside.

A cute way for online seller to send a personal note of appreciation in with their orders. Or use them to say "thank you" to anyone any time

I hope you will check out each of these shops from the
