The Gospel Changes Lives

I came across this short film on Tim Challies’ blog and wanted to share it with you all. It will be a blessing to you. “Hearing His Voice documents the story of what happened when a people group just like this encountered God’s Word for the first time. They were forgotten by the world in the jungles of Asia-Pacific until 20 years ago when a Christian pilot spotted them in the foliage below.”

A Productive Day

I worked on some children’s greeting cards today to send to Card Care Connection. They are an organization that gives cards to adults and children who are facing cancer and they take donations of homemade cards to give out to cancer patients. This will be my second package to them. You can read more information and how to donate at their website.

I first read about sending cards to hospitals and patients from the blog, Jess Crafts, where I learned to make cards using a 6×6 paper pad. I enjoy watching her videos and reading her posts because she is very easy to understand and very encouraging. These cards were made using the Dino Friends kit from Echo Park.

Trying Again

A few weeks ago Tim Challies posted this on Twitter:

It got me thinking about this poor blog sitting here all alone and I thought I would try again to get into this habit.  I guess because I am no longer homeschooling or have kids at home I don’t have anything to say!  But that’s not true!

I do still have a life and I do miss writing.  I think getting back to doing this will help my focus issues.  So for anyone is still out there, I hope to be more active here.  Some of the things I will be posting will be: crafts, Bible study, hymns, quotes, grandparenting, nature study, and more.

Please join me!

ESG: My Favorite Photo – July

Stargazer Lily in my side yard.  These are a favorite because I planted them and they grew.  Not much work on my part, which is good, because I’m not much of a gardender!

Saw these one evening as I was leaving a store.  Clouds are one of my favorite things to photograph; always something different!

I took this to remind myself that everything is beautiful in its own way.  Some people see a dandelion and think “weed” but it’s also a flower–a pretty one, at that!
