Aprons And More

 
Why I love My Aprons
 
Have you ever just made a wee bite to eat, and
looked down to discover food splattered all
over your nice clean clothes.
 
I can remember the first time this happened when it just crushed me.
It was Thanksgiving Day,
and I was mixing the gravy and it splattered all over
my brand new top.
 
Now, my hubby sweetly said why didn't you put  an
apron on??
LIKE ,I don't have ONE!!
 
Days after a ruined shirt never to be worn again.
I did find an old apron made by my hubbies sister in home economics class
many moons ago.  So I used it as my pattern...
TaaaDaaa!
 
Now, I have many lovely different fabrics, a few different patters,
but the principle is still the principle.
Why I love my aprons.
 
More on aprons to come.

The Invisible Man

 
Seeing dimly?
 
Sometimes we only see what we want to see.
Other times we only see the shadow of what is there.
 
I have been praying for my eyes to be opened,
I want to see what God is doing!
 
One of the things I have noticed all around me is the way people just feel invisible,
they look sad.  And look stressed out, worried, agitated.
Like this world has not been kind to them.
 
So I have asked myself if I would take the time and smile or nod my head,
to those I pass in my journey this day.
 
People are feeling lonely and lost!
Let us who know the truth, be the light that can expose the shadow.
The shadow is the fear and loneliness, it seeks ti kill steal and destroy.
 
So shine on, Be the light!
 
Try this experiment:
The next time your out and you see the downcast or hurt,
smile and say hello or just smile...
 
Do not give people the impression that they are invisible, by not seeing them!

The Republic




 
 
 
 
Pray For America


 

A free America this is the republic for which we stand
One Nation under God

I am so thankful for being an American.
God has shed His grace on thee.

We will stand and not fall

We must stand united

Freedom
 

GOD BLESS AMERICA
 
If  My people who are called by My name will humble themselves,
and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin
and heal their land. 2Chronicles7:14 NKJV

Fears Of Blogging...

I was just frozen with fear!
It came upon me with one little click of a button.
Trying to change my background turned into a
Maiden in distress.
I warned my  Hubby if I start to scream, I have just erased my Blog!
I still don't know if your suppose to remove your old background, before adding the new one.
Can anyone answer this for me?
I fully understand the dangers in Blogging.
I need support.
I must conquer my fears!
Feeling dizzy and weak!
Need nourishment!!!
Now, let me ask you other bloggers out there, before you had 7 zillion followers
Have YOU ever experienced this??
My sweet hubby applied his reading glasses and  tried to help me
Find the answers in my newly purchased Google Blogger For Dummies book.
I really do not know what I did, but my Blog is still alive
.
Blogging has definitely been a learning curve for me!
I have enjoyed having a place to love and encourage others.
May we not be fearful, But rather grow in new skills
And Beyond...

Blessings, Roxy

Something Does Not Feel Right...

Hey Hey, Where's My Feet?

There is just something about this guy:
Mr. Potato Head
Sometimes we can have all the right pieces, but they're just not in the right places,
Or not doing the job they were created to do.
Ever feel like I just can't see it, and it's right in front of your face?

Other times I have to ask,
 What did He say?
I did not hear!!
Ever hear the expression (they talk out of both sides of their mouths)?
Ever wish you had an extra hand? LOL
What is really sad if you don't put your feet into it
 You're not going anywhere.
We got to move it, move it!
The sin of comparing ourselves to others, could possibly turn you into something that
Might resembles Mr. Potato Head.
Now look at him, he was a mess.
Each one should test his own actions.
Then he can take pride in himself, without
comparing himself to somebody else.
Galatians 5:7

Jelly Time

 
A Labor Of Love
 
My friends and I went to a class last night offered by our Extension Office.
It was on Pressure canning. the do's and dont's.
Wow did we get checked!!!
Just because its the way we have always done it does not make it SAFE.
It cost us 5 dollars !
And we all know in today's economy that is a deal.
We all also won a prize which cost about 5 bucks.
So now the class is FREE.
 
It is time to learn and to update your knowledge on water bath canning,
and to learn how to pressure can non acid foods, meat starch vegetables etc.
 
These old ways of putting up and back is the now new, of how to be prepared in these tough days of inflation in our food cost!
 
Can I hear an Amen?
 
What can we expect in the near future in our food cost?
I can make a real good guess...
It's going UP!
 
I want to know that I am doing something to protect my family when a loaf of bread cost
5 dollars.
Believe me it can happen overnight.
Educate yourself, learn to cook from basic ingredients.
Purchase a cookbook and a canning book!
It is all about having the staples.
Figure out what are the staples your family will need.
 
Stock up and not out of fear but pure and simple wisdom!!
Fill your heart and home with the goodness of a
Labor of Love
 
"By perseverance the snail reached the ark."
 
By the way this was Plum Jelly and a Harvest Butter in the picture:)

Charming Wash Tubs



Wash Tubs
 
These wonderful charming wash tubs.
They speak of days gone by,
They were used for children's bath times many moons ago.
Women even used them to do laundry in with a wash board.
 
 
As a little girl my Grandmother would fill it with fresh
water every morning in the summer.  And we had our own
swimming pool!
 
Each one of my own grandchildren have
had the memories of a good time and summer fun
in their own tubs.
 
Making memories!
 
Take the time to have fun...
 
Spend time with those you love...
 
 
Sit at the Fathers feet, and thank the Lord above.
For time with your children is short, like a blink...
 
Days gone by, only memories!
 
 
Midlife crisis is that moment when you realize your children
and your clothes are about the same age.
 
Blessings, Roxy

Amazing Days Are Coming



 
A Day To Remember
 
This was an amazing day. 
 We took a drive to meet some friends for dinner, at a wonderful mountain restaurant.
The drive was so refreshing, and cool. Every mile higher brought relief from the blazing heat.
Higher and higher till our ears popped.
Cooler and cooler the temperature kept dropping!
 
Nothing like great food and best friends!
Danny and I picked pine cones because they were so pretty, and smelled wonderful.
Maybe I can find a craft project for fall or Christmas to use these treasures in.
 
God is amazing in how He orchestrates our lives with His body of believers.
We ran into our other great friends while up there, and we all got together  in our friends cabin. and we had the most powerful time in prayer and worship.
 
We had church folks!
His Presence just flowed over us!
God is taking His people to new heights.
 
Keep looking Up for His redemption is Nigh.
 
Were going up, now is the time to see higher.
Think higher thoughts.
Hear in the Spirit.
He has great things in store for His children.
 
Blessings Roxy
