A Year With God
Make His Thoughts Your Thoughts - Daily Readings and Reflections on God's Own Words
by R.P. Nettelhorst

This is a beautiful Old Testament paperback devotional. Each day's reading is broken into two halves - a passage of scripture and a devotional drawing from the reading. The days are not numbered by the date, but simply by a number (1-365), which I enjoy because it is hard to start a book on January 1st ! This is strictly an Old Testament devotional, and all the readings come from those books. The author wanted to show us who God is, not Jesus, and what those words can mean to us.

The God of the Old Testament is very different from the God of the New Testament. The laws and rules of sacrifice and daily practices were well communicated and strict. So many signs from God were miraculous and black and white. God loved his people, but they did not always love him. This is a great devotional diving into many of those short passages that are often looked over as we read the Old Testament!

Most of my Christmas presents are wrapped already! I hope 2 year old Wynter is going to love these beanbags...not that she can read them, but I'm sure she can throw them!

Fabric paint is so easy to use and looks amazing. I want to stretch fabric over old frames and paint either last names or some quotes on them. The words take a little time to prepare as they are printed on card stock, traced onto freezer paper, then cut out with box cutter or razor. The freezer paper can be ironed on to fabric (waxy side down!), and peels right off after the paint dries!

AMAZING STORY!

Heaven is for Real
by Todd Burpo

This is an amazing story! I laughed, I cried, and I'm still trying to comprehend the “adventure” of little Colton. During a major surgery where Colton was very near death, he actually got to visit heaven for a little while. Written by his father, a pastor, the references Colton makes to what heaven was like and the events that took places are backed up by amazing scripture. From the d├ęcor in heaven, the clothes Jesus wears and His physical characteristics, relatives Colton met for the first time, and events described in Revelations, no comment about heaven made by Colton is inaccurate. It takes a little boy to make us remember that modern day miracles do happen.

I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE! It is short and has short chapters. It moves right along and left me amazed. My husband and I have talked about whether we will know each other in heaven, and I truly think we will after reading this book. I can't wait to look up a picture referenced in the book by a little girl who has also been to heaven. Please read this if you get a chance!

Potholder's Galore!




Potholders! Easy day projects. I am not sure what I am going to do with these yet, but they were fun to create. I also made a few that are shaped like Mickey Mouse to give to relatives for Christmas but haven't taken a picture of them yet.

It's time that time of the year to get working on projects! What are you working on?
