Just a little post about our Keepers of the Home meeting..
Early in the morning we headed over to the church.
What a lovely sunny day it was..
Terry helped me set up the tables and soon the girls were arriving..
The smell of coffee was in the air and there was happy chatter..
I love just to be still and listen to them all.. smile..
We make breakfast together with everyone doing what they can.. along with the catching up of all of the happenings since our last time together..
For breakfast there were hashed browns, scrambled eggs, toad in the hole, juices, cheddar biscuits and some delicious blueberry muffins that one of the Keepers brought in..
Thank you, dear..
Then we all refilled our coffees and had a little lesson about a Valentine's Day related subject..
Love and Romance..
Marriage in today's world is a challenge and we discussed how the Lord makes such a difference in our homes and marriages..
We need to keep romance alive and enjoy the work that we put into our life with our spouse..
He is precious to us and we need to cherish our marriages..
Then we just talked about some good old common sense things that make a difference in our relationship with our husbands..
You can find them HERE..
After that we concentrated on making some little mason jar lamps with battery tea lights..
We thought they would be nice in the bathroom at night so you needn't turn on the light..
We used old music paper and painted red hearts on them ..
There were many versions and the girls were so creative..
I made the little buntings (banners) out of burlap with a painted heart on them..
Just cut your burlap into triangles and use acrylic paint to do the hearts..
Cut a jute string as long as you need and use your glue gun to glue it on and fold over..
A very easy craft to make..
I saw this on Pinterest, of course..
The little heart box was a door prize..
Lindsay won this.. smile..
I bought the heart at the dollar store and then tore up paper bags and glued them on the box with a Aylmer's glue stick..
Then using modge podge I glued on pics I had copied off of the computer along with a bit of lace and buttons and such..
A rubbing of distress ink makes the box look old..
Then last just a coating of Modge Podge with a sponge brush and it is all finished..
An old board was painted with a heart and John 3:16 painted on..
Just a bit of heart art..
Thank you, dear hearts for checking in again..
I shared with the girls that my stats show that almost 5000 people have read the post of the last April Keepers Meeting ..
I am glad that some enjoy hearing what we are up to..
I think you girls share the post on Face Book ..
Thank you for doing that..
Love to you all..
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
