Good Evening everyone..
Just giving you a little post tonight about our day..
It looks to be a very dreary day out there..
A big snowstorm is forecast for later on today but for now we are getting ready to go to our KEEPERS OF THE HOME meeting..
I need to get some coffee made for Terry and I to drink in the car on the way and then he will load all of the stuff that I am taking..
The roads were slippery up here on our end but as we drove closer to Sussex the roads were a little better...
Thank goodness, my dear man decided to drive me..
We arrived a bit early so we could set up tables and chairs and get the coffee going .. again... grin..
We had some lovely company today..
It is nice when they come the first time and even better when they
It was nice to have Maureen today... I hope I spelled your name right.... smile..
And Susan and Lori back again.. Dear hearts...
Everyone got busy making breakfast...
Toast, eggs, bacon, fruit salad and more..
Orange and raisin muffins...
with little heart picks..
Our sweet sister Nancy came and brought us a treat..
Her homemade dark and white chocolate bark..
And there is dear sweet Emily... our youngest Keeper.. grin..
Another new baby was on it's way today and we can't wait to meet him or her??? smile..
I brought a bottle of sprouts to show the girls..
I thought it was funny that only the younger ones were interested and wanted their own kit to start at home.. grin..
I know they will be as hooked as me by the next time we get together.. smile..
Also... a wee tip ...
Those peanut butter or mayo jars are perfect for sprouting but also for freezing left over soups.. They don't break...
And then it was on to the lesson...
Colossians 3: 12-17
New International Version (NIV)
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity
A reminder of how the Lord holy and dearly loves us..
How he loves our family units and we are His valentines..
That the minute we put our feet on the floor we need to remember that this home and it's occupants are loved by God..
He loves families and they are His will..
To use the attributes of compassion, kindness, humility , gentleness and patience towards each member of our family....
We discussed how we could use each one of these virtues individually to improve our family life..
And to strive to work toward unity in our homes by binding them up with the everlasting string of love...
We are so thankful in this day when everything is working against family units that we can put our trust and hope in God..
We strive to put Him in the centre and head of our homes..
With that finished we began working on our craft for the day..
They made the craft that I shared with you in the last posting
TEA LIGHT LAMP..
Some used recipes, music paper or old mags and pictures..
Quite a variety..
Did you know that you can make your own modge podge by mixing half of a bottle of white glue with half of a bottle of water and shake it all up..
I saw that on Pinterest, too...
All in all we had a lovely day..
Our numbers were down but we still had a great time of fellowship..
On the way home it was snowing really hard..
As you can see... smile..
We have about 30 cm. down now, I think...
How is everything in your world?
Some of you are having Spring and we are just getting our Winter..
That's OK, though...
Thank you, sweet ladies for dropping by..
Tomorrow is the LORD'S DAY...
I don't know if there will be church or not..
The winds are howling out there and the snow is blowing about..
I hope to hear from you all... Love reading your sweet comments.
I picked up a few things today to finish some projects that I have been wanting to finish...
Hope to share them with you all soon..
God bless you all...
