Hope you are all having a great weekend..
We have been having some lovely hot weather the last few days.
So nice as it really feels like Summer has arrived..
There are so many lovely things that I love about this season..
So long as it is not too hot, of course..
Rain is once again in the forecast for the first of the week so we need to enjoy while we have it, I think..
Just sharing a few pics with you tonight..
I don't seem to be doing very well blogging lately..
I think everyone is too busy to be bothering reading this stuff but anyway here I am now and then..
I love my little work area at the shop..
It has turned out lovely..
I can still interact with the customers and putter away..
These are some primitive homespun buntings that I made this past week..
And this is my first big purchase that some dear girl bought..
With the rain it has not been busy at all and so am very glad when the sun comes out..
She loved the olde stuff.. smile..
Then here are some Foot Soaks and Hand Scrubs..
All made and packaged..
I have so many old torn and tattered embroidery pieces and decided to put them to a different use..
Some modge podge and later when they dry a bit of ink on the edges..
And to and from marked on the backs..
I packaged them in cello bags and tied with ribbons..
Tonight there was a lovely wedding on the beach..
The bride's Mom emailed me and wondered if they could take some pics in front of our old barn..
I took a couple of pics of them when they were back on the street..
It was a burlap and lace style of wedding..
The girls wore cowboy boots and it was very casual..
The bride was beautiful..
I pray that God will bless this marriage..
With happiness and joy down through the years..
That it will sustain and be solid..
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day..
Please pray for the dear people in the small town in Quebec where there has been huge explosions due to a train derailment..
It seems that there is just one disaster after another in our world..
Lives are being lost and families are crying out for help..
The weather is setting records everyday and nothing is as it was..
Our country needs to turn back to God ..
The Bible talks about the last days in
Luke 21:25 NIV
There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars.. On the earth nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken..
There are many scriptures describing our world today and warning that the Lord will be returning for his people..
In Matthew 24: 42-44TLB
So be prepared, for you don't know what day your Lord is coming.. Just as a man can prevent trouble from the thieves by keeping watch for them, so you can avoid trouble by always being ready for My unannounced return..
The Bible tells us how to be prepared to meet our God..
In Ephesians 2:8-10
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God..
Then in Acts 2:38 Peter condensed it all in one verse..
Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost..
If you don't know Him tonight please don't wait..
He is coming soon..
It is wonderful to live with peace in your heart knowing that He is in control...
Our families need Jesus to steer and direct their lives..
We can lean on Him in these difficult days..
My heart is heavy tonight for this old world that needs God and are living in fear..
Trust Him tonight with your heart and He will be faithful..
Remember He is as close as the mention of His Name..
He is right there beside you and waiting for you to call on Him..
He loves this world...And He loves you and me..
So once again I have opened up my heart to you..
Praying for you..
