Things I love !

Hi Everyone ! I love Chocolate Cake!I just recently tired Naturally Nora's cake & frosting mix and I really liked it . They didn't give me the mixes free or anything ,I just came across them on the internet & I thought I would try it, But after I thought about it , I might contact them and see if they will send me something to try and review , they make several different kinds.

I love to search on SwagBucks !( click to go there and join, if you haven't already) Just recently I used amazon gift gifts I won from SB to purchase something else I love , this Madame Alexander Dorothy Doll.

It came in this cool box.

I love Wizard of Oz , the movie & the books , too.

Toto is in her basket.

Close-up of face , a sweet renition of Dorothy.

She also came with these movie version slippers, very cool !

Another , thing I love are vintage tablecloths , I just snagged this beautiful Rose cloth form Ebay .

I love the roses !

Welcome Home Eli !

Hi Everyone!

This is Eliana Elizabeth Chavis , my newest granddaughter , born on March 1, 2011. She has overcome many challenges & still has more to face in her young life .She has lived at the Duke Hospital NICU since her birth . (Go here& here for more of the story .) But today Sunday July 24th, she is finally coming home . Please pray for her& her mom,dad& big sister,too!

Living Stones

"Coming to Him as to a living stone ,rejected indeed by men,but chosen by God and precious, YOU also , as living stones , are being built up a spiritual house , a holy priesthood , to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ ." 1Peter 2:4&5

The Tools

His thoughts said , I wonder why these special tools are used ?
His Father said , The house when it was in building ,was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither, so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any other tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.
If thou knewest the disappointment it is to the builders when the stone cannot be used for the house , because it was not made ready before it was brought thither, if thou knewest my purpose for thee, thou would welcome any tool if only it prepared thee quietly and perfectly to fit into thy place in the house .

~ excerpt from "His thoughts said,His Father said" By Amy Carmichael

He only gives good things to his children. Has there been something you have prayed for or not to have ? Has His answer been no, or has it been I have something better for you?

Love & Blessings,
