Truffles, Lightening, and Spiderwebs

Image
Last night we had a thunderstorm and I was able to get a few pictures of the lightening.
Psalms 77:17-18 The clouds poured out water; The skies sent out a sound; Your arrows also flashed about.  The voice of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook. 

Truffles are soooo delicious!
Tempt-Me Truffles
Powdered sugar 1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened 5 1-oz. squares unsweetened chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Chopped toasted almonds Cocoa
Gradually add 4 cups powered sugar to cream cheese, mixing well after each addition. Add chocolate and vanilla; mix well. Chill several hours. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in almonds, cocoa, or additional powdered sugar. Chill. Makes 4 dozen. Enjoy!

The other day in the morning their was a nice fog and the night before it had rained, so you could see spiderwebs all through our woods. It was really cool!

Have a happy day in Jesus!
P.S. Here is a post by my Mom We All Need Forgiveness. I haven't read it yet m…

A Cute Apron

Image
I saw a really cute apron at a shop the other day, but the price was more then I was willing to pay for it, thus, I said to myself that I could make my own very much like it. Therefore, I did! Of course, Mine is not nearly as good as the one I had seen, but at least I did it and it does have the same basic idea as the one I had seen. Here are some pictures of the apron I made.



Every time I sew something, I am reminded of how bad of a sewer I am and how much I dislike doing it. Almost every time I sew something, by the time I finally finish the project, I say very emphatically that "I will never sew again in my life!", so yesterday when I said that, my sister, Elisabeth, laughed and said "You said that last time."  Hehe! I don't think she took me very seriously that time. I hope you have a happy day full of sunshine, smiles, and laughter!

Summary of Hebrews

Unlike many of the letters of the New Testament, Hebrews author is unidentified. The date for when this letter was written is most likely later than A.D. 60, but earlier than 70.                The theme of Hebrews seems to be Jesus Christ as our High Priest. Jesus Christ came to earth perfect, Holy, and without sin. Yet, He was lifted up on the cross to die as a sacrifice for our sins, once for all. The Jews no longer need to have a flawed high priest go into the tabernacle to offer up sacrifices daily for the people’s sins. Jesus Christ is our High Priest and he has offered Himself up as the sacrifice for our sins. The author also continues to warn us against falling away from the truth because of unbelief.
A. What is the author telling me in Hebrews 1:1-2:18?                 The author of Hebrews did not begin with a greeting, but moved right into what he wanted to tell His audience. The author tells us that God has revealed Himself to us through His Son. He then describes in short th…

Sentimentality

I hate having too much stuff. I guess I got that honest, for my mom is the same way. Sometimes I’ll just get into one of my get-rid-of moods and I’ll go through my stuff and try to get rid of as much stuff as possible, but when I get to the end, I still feel like I haven’t gotten rid of enough. Then of course I also have to start going through everyone else’s stuff too, because their stuff is the real problem any way, right. ;) Yet, at the same time of trying to get rid of unnecessary things, I also like to keep things for there sentimental value. You would be amazed at the crazy little things that I have held on to for some strange reason. Not to mention the odd collections that I have started. You know those little stick things that come with a plant that you buy from the store. It tells the name of the plant and you can poke it into the ground next to the plant so you know the name of it. Well, several years ago I got this crazy idea that I would save these stick things and make it…

Summary of Romans

Image
It is hardly questioned that Romans is written by Paul*, the apostle, especially considering he begins his book with “Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ…” It is most probable that Romans was written about A.D. 57*.             The theme of Romans can be summed up pretty well with this short little phrase, “Justification through faith by grace for His glory” We are justified, that is, set free or declared free from sin, by believing in what Christ has done for us on the cross. It is by God’s grace that we are saved and not any works of righteousness that we have done. God has saved us that His name might be glorified and lifted high. Because we now no longer live in the flesh, but have put on the new man, we must live righteously and for God’s glory.
A. What is the author telling me in Romans 1:1-17?             Paul begins his epistle to the Romans with a greeting! He makes it clear that he is an apostle through Jesus Christ and by His grace. He thanks God for them and their faith and a…

With it's Heart Against a Thorn

Image
I found this poem in Streams of the Desert and liked it so much I decided to share it with all of ya'll! I hope you are blessed by it!

Once I heard a song of sweetness, As it cleft the morning air, Sounding in its blest completeness, Like a tender, pleading prayer; And I sought to find the singer, Whence the wondrous song was born; And I found a bird, sore wounded, Pinioned by a cruel thorn.
I have seen a soul in sadness, While its wings with pain were furl’d, Giving hope, and cheer and gladness That should bless a weeping world; And I knew that life of sweetness, Was of pain and sorrow borne, And a stricken soul was singing, With its heart against a thorn.
Ye are told of One who loved you, Of a Saviour crucified, Ye are told of nails that pinioned, And a spear that pierced His side; Ye are told of cruel scourging, Of a Saviour bearing scorn, And He died for your salvation, With His brow against a thorn.
Ye “are not above the Master.” Will you breathe a sweet refrain? And His grace will be sufficient, When y…
