A posting about our Keepers meeting which we held on Saturday morning..
Here are a few pics..
We had a really good turnout again..
I think we all look forward to a morning of sweet fellowship..
We always start by making breakfast together..
This day we had ham and then we made French Toast with homemade maple syrup with the recipe found HERE..
I always add a Tablespoon of real butter to the recipe..
We also had birds in the nest which is bread with the hole torn out and an egg cooked in the middle..
Along with juice and coffee or tea we all had our fill..
Then after tiding up we refilled our coffee cups and there was a wee lesson..
God + Family = A Christian Home..
We read in Matt. 7- 24-27 of where Jesus talked about the house which is built upon the rock.
We know that Christ is the rock upon which we must build our lives and our homes upon..
When he lives in our hearts then he takes up residence in our homes..
He makes such a great difference in it and he brings joy and peace.
We talked of the many things we can do to improve our homes and perhaps it could be the talk of the block for it's beauty but if it is not built on the rock then the storms of life can tear it down..
We can all experience trials but when Christ is at the centre of the home then he is there with us in the midst of our storms and when it is over the home is still standing..
We likened our homes to houses on a dark street but when there is a Christian home then it is like a porch light is on and it is a beacon for the world..
We want to spend time making our homes more organized or hospitable but the most important thing we can do for our family is to build a Christian home for them to live in..
Making sure that each day we take the time to feel his presence with prayer and praise..
This brings grace into our homes along with genuine happiness and purpose..
Keep your porch light burning...
We have a bit of homework..
1.. To pray Psalms 101 over our homes..
2.. Watch an episode or read a book of The Little House on the Prairie..
Just a reminder of how it used to be when times were simple and there was open affection between family members, kindness, gentleness and bed time prayers and church attendance were the way of life ...
3.. Do an old fashioned back to basic thing for your family this month and tell us about it next time..
A simple demonstration of how to make the no knead bread with this recipe found HERE
It can be made into rolls, French Bread or just a plain loaf...
After that we made linen bags to store our bread in..
There are a few pics of the girls crafting..
All in all it was a lovely day..
Hope you find this interesting..
Take care my dears and God bless..
