We stopped by Target & I got this off the $1 Isle , But it was$ 2.50 . lol

Here my granddaughter is standing inside a Megladon Shark. (Actually behind the jaws )

We ended up in Build a Bear , buying Freddy the Frog , He is very cute .

Children are a Gift from God- Sanctity of Life Sunday

Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father above.............. James 1:17

During this past week I have been making paper snowflakes. As I made each snowflake , I have been praying for the unborn. Each snowflake has reminded me of how each child is special and unique . A work of art created in God's image and greatly valued by him . In His word, it says:

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Psalm 139 :13-16

Joy in the Morning

...................Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5

I love this promise from God , we may experience pain and sorrow , but we are promised more than relief , we are promised Joy . He is a great and wonderful God !

Eclectic Reds from the New Year

Hello to all &Welcome to my Blog today ! My reds today are from all over the place . They are from things I have done this year, but they are not in any particular order . The first pic is a subway art print I used on the New Years Party Refreshment Table . It was a wonderful freebie from Custom Printables .

This is a pic of the Light Towers at City Plaza in Raleigh , NC. We rode by it on Friday nite . We were visiting the History museum on First Friday. We saw the George Washington Exhibit, it was very interesting .

While we were in Raleigh , we shopped at Trader Joes , it is the closest one to me .

I couldn't take pics of the GW exhibit , but here is a cool Toy Display .

On New Years Eve , Paula @ Paula's Palace of Altered Art had a craft Along .I think it was very cool idea. By the time I got home from my daughter's , I was exhausted; So next day ,My granddaughter & I had fun making our versions of her free gnome patterns . After going there to link ,I saw that she has sent out a prayer request for her niece . For details click on link& please pray .

The first pic is Jasmine's version , very cool gnomes .

This is my version , these patterns have have a lot of possibilities.

This is a yummy pink drink from an American Girl recipe Book that my granddaughter Jasmine whipped up . She looks to draw , write & she is an avid reader , You can visit her blog HERE.

My granddaughters, Trinity & Shauna On New Year's Eve . Mustache & lip printables courtesy of Living Locurto .

I'll end up with this snow covered wreath pic from our Christmas snow just cause I thought it was pretty.

A devotional by Joni Eareckson Tada

Look to the Lord and his strength;seek his face always .---Psalm 105:4

Where did this year fly to ? Just when I get in the groove of writing the correct year , I've got to learn a new one .It's hard to keep track anymore.
That's why right now is a great time to take inventory. Go back over the year and ask yourself : Did I meet all of my goals , or at least some of them ? Did I keep all of my promises , at least those I remember ?Have my relationships strengthened with my family and friends ?Did my life in the Lord Jesus deepen and grow ?If I were to ask a close friend, would he say that I've changed for the better over the last year?

I'm not asking you these things to make you feel guilty. It's just good to close out the old , to tie up the lose ends,and bring closure to one year before you begin a new one .

Set aside a few minutes right now and take inventory. Consider each question and turn it into a prayer as together we stand on the threshold of a new year.

Did I commit myself to do something and and yet fail to do it ?Lord give me the courage to make amends with those I failed. Help me to be a promise- keeper and make good on my word .

Did I testify as a Christian in my place of work ?Lord , help me to stand up for the faith where I work, because I want to be salt and light to the people around me .

Did I show appreciation for family and friends ? Lord, forgive me for unresolved conflicts and arguments left hanging .Help me to deepen my friendship with each family member and each person in my life.

Did I enjoy being alone with the Lord this past year?Lord, keep reminding me that quiet time with You is the source of my strength .As I commit myself to a special time of prayer and the study of your Word, hold me to my vows . May I glorify you in the year to come .

Happy New Year !
