Romans 12:1-2

The Abundant Life Is a Service Life

I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

We serve through sacrifice. A true sacrifice puts everything we have at the disposal of Christ. A true sacrifice shows real love for others.

Have a great Sunday, my day of worship was awesome!

In Memory

My Grandpa, today was his birthday adn I do miss him, his laughter, his hugs, his smiles.

My Mother-in-Law, Ione, she was full of life, her glass was always 1/2 full and music was he gift!

My Mother-in-Laws sister, she shared a birthday! she was born on Ione’s 5th birthday, Joan. She just resently passed away. She was so much like Ione in looks, she was a lot different, I didn’t know much about her but she was full of life also!

Happy Birthday to some very special people that were in my life and I look forward to seeing you again when I see you in Heaven! love and miss you!

Jumping/Leaping Cats or Kittens? Quilt

How do you figure out a name for a quilt?

I came up with JUMPING CATS  guess that was the first name that hit me!

Random Reds

Standard

I thought that being it Valentine’s Day I would have fun and take pictures of my red belongings! Now I will share with you. I know that Valentine’s Day is pagan holiday and I am not a pagan any more due to the fact that I have been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ my LORD, therefore, I am no longer a pagan. {{((hugs))}} thanks you God for sending your Son to be the Savior of the World. As a side note did you know that this past Tuesday was Fat Tuesday? Wednesday was Ash Wednesday?

Well here are my Random Reds….I do LOVE RED.

Me and Thee and Flowers

I have been blessed with receiving flowers from my hubby this past week, first he brought me, a single red rose

{True Love}

{True Love}

Then another surprise came about mid week (yet I don’t really remember when he brought it to me}  I do love flowers and they bring happiness and cheer a hundredfold during the winter months… maybe that is why we have Valentine’s Day in February? You tell me, for I do not know. 😉

78..34…21..

Standard

Today we will have school, how does a home-schooler have a snow day? 🙂 Dis-advantage, however the advantage is we can stay home or get out whatever we feel like doing when it’s cold and snowy out.  Monday was a shorts day with 78* then it dropped to 34*
