Upcoming Book to Review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation




Good Morning My Friends!

I wanted to pop on here and let you know that this little gem will be showing up at my door tomorrow. I cannot wait to get into this one. I have enjoyed his other books The Red Sea Rules, and Worry Less Live More.

I find his books in depth, but they pull so much from you that I feel they put you to a new level in your walk with Christ.  I have found this true with me. I will be reading and be reviewing this book. I will post my opinion here.


Book Description

Why are we feeling so depleted when God has promised us strength equal to our days?
Pastor Robert Morgan leads a busy life as a pastor and is also a multitasking caregiver to his disabled wife. Most days he feels exhausted, yet over time God has shown him how to build himself up when he’s worn himself out. He has learned to fully embrace Psalm 84, as he moves from strength to strength. The valleys and the weaknesses are inevitable. Our task is to embrace these as we wait for God to take us to our next time of strength.
After reviewing the 232 occurrences of the word strength in Scripture, Pastor Robert discovered twelve clear passages that drop anchor in God’s Sea of Strength. Among the kinds of strength available to every believer are:
Lifelong Strength: your strength will equal your days (Deuteronomy 33:25)
Lasting Strength: they go from strength to strength (Psalm 84:5-7)
Imparted Strength: the eyes of The Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him (2 Chronicles 16:9)
Joyful Strength: the joy of The Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10)
Timely Strength: God is our refuge and strength (Psalm 46:1)
Tranquil Strength: in quietness and trust is your strength (Isaiah 30:15)
Renewed Strength: those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31)
Recurring Strength: the Lord will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden (Isaiah 58:11)
Durable Strength: the Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to tread on the heights (Habakkuk 3:19)
Unwavering Strength: Abraham did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God (Romans 4:20)
Innermost Strength: I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being (Ephesians 3:16)
Riveting Strength: I can do all this through Him who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13)

Dinosaur on the prowl

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation








Greetings Everyone! I have been busy again with things. I really enjoy making things for our Pastor's son. He's a great child. I love his energy. When I had this dinosaur cut for him and brought it to church soon as he spotted me he came running when I held up the dino. Pastor and I laughed at his excitement running up the center aisle of the church. I just love his enthusiasm.  When he makes requests I enjoy making them for him.  The second picture here my son thought it was funny since Jurassic Park was on television to place the dino over the logo to give it some creepy eyes.

Dinosaur (Prehistoric Party):

Dimensions 11" x 6.8"

Cardstock:

Cream
Dark Gray
Light Brown
Medium Brown

ATG

I chose the size than the colors according to what was requested. I have a few projects in the works. I will be getting those made and posted as soon as I can. 

Grace & Peace,

A Thanksgiving Blessing Dinner with Family & Friends

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation






Greetings! I wanted to share this little turkey I made. They were a hit on our table. I really enjoyed making them. I am already designing and working on Christmas cards. We had special treats on the table for us to enjoy from candy corn and special pieces of chocolate. We were asked to write things that we were thankful for, also we were given coloring pages to work on so we didn't have to just sit there or just spend time talking. We could be creative. It was noisy, hey, when you're having fun it's ok to be noisy, fun, and great to catch up with the ones we haven't seen in a year.


 Okay, now back to our little turkey.  The details are as follows:

The body measures as follows 6.3x5
The tail feathers measure as follows 8.7x5.4

I cut four of them for the table.


Grace & Peace,

Book Review - Worry Less Live More by Robert J. Morgan

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation

Greetings, Everyone!! I have been doing quite a bit of reading lately. This was my latest read. I have read Robert Morgan's book The Red Sea Rules; this one is a good follow up to that book. I cannot wait to get to his next book.  I found in reading the book there were many good points to share with friends. I have a few friends that are feeling discouraged and I was able to share some of these with them. I also came across some points that made me laugh, but at the same time ponder on them thinking how many times do we do this. How many times are we hung up on things that we cannot move forward and allow things to upset us? Here is one of those points. I will share with you. A paragraph from chapter 2. The paragraph opened up with the verses from I Peter 3:3-4. Look at those words,”a gentle...spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." According to Apostle Peter, this is true elegance and it's the way we make ourselves appealing to others, to the world, and to the Lord. When I was a boy, my parents both schoolteachers, sometimes took me to Knoxville, Tennessee for educational conferences and we always stayed downtown at the Farragut Hotel, next to the S&W Cafeteria. One year my elderly grandparents accompanied us, and during supper my grandfather, Clifton Palmer, grew agitated. Turning to my Mom, he said"An old man across the room keeps scowling at me." We all looked, of course. The opposite wall was lined with mirrors and my grandfather had been looking at no one but himself. I will be passing this book to a few friends to read and will be adding it to my resource library.

I spy Charlie Brown..... A Trunk or Treat Event

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation




Greetings Everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful day. I know I have had a wonderful day with my son and husband. I am getting some fun projects up on here that I haven't had the chance to post as of yet. 

This is the trunk or treat that my church had this last October. We had a great turn out for this event. I helped a great best friend of mine who's better known as my co-conspirator for adding Charlie Brown to her vehicle for trunk or treat. I was excited to do it for her and her husband. I love those two. They are a wonderful Christian couple. 

Charlie Brown is 15 inches tall. I used the slicing tool with Design Space to get him just right.  Cutting him and putting him together was fun.I always look forward to the next project that I have on my slate. I love making things for the church, for the school, oh, and for my Pastor's son. I look forward to his requests, I never know what's coming. I look forward to seeing his reaction when I bring him the completed project.
Grace & Peace,
