A funny little story for y'all. Yesterday morning I was in the kitchen getting breakfast made before hubby got up. I love for it to be fresh and hot for him just as soon as he's ready to eat. Well.....I got the coffee going, had the sausages out of the freezer and ready to cook, and..............(said with head down looking a little sheepish)........yes, folks, I'm just gonna go ahead and say it! For the shame of it all, "I USE CANNED BISCUITS", most of the time! There, I said it, and boy do I feel so much better!!!!!! hahahahahahahaha Ok, where was I? Oh yeah, I was getting my baking sheet ready for the biscuits. They were not the "grands" kind, but they were the large biscuits like them. I peeled the outer layer away and was getting ready to squeeze the tube to make it pop open and all of the sudden that thing exploded in my hand and made the awfullest loud bang you ever heard and I found myself ducking trying to dodge biscuit shrapnel!! Mind you, I was the only person up, I started laughing and then all of the sudden, guess what I did!!!! Go ahead, you will never guess. Have you made your guess? Well, I looked all around to see if anyone seen me duck when my biscuit can exploded. I did!!!!!! I looked around!!!!!! Then I realized it was only God and me that seen it, and I feel pretty sure that not only was I laughing, but I really believe He got a kick out of it too!!!!! I have laughed over that till my sides are sore. No joke. Oh well, at least I'm not telling you about having to pick biscuits out of my hair. hahahahahaha
Ok, now for the video project. Yes, I am getting hooked! I enjoy it so much. This is my second one now, so still be a lot forgiving when you watch it. What I wanted to show you is how to use some of your scraps to make little gifts to stick in you purse or pocket on the way out and share with someone who checks you out, maybe who does your hair...........just someone that does something for you, you can let them know you appreciate them with a little gift. I done the same thing last year and I posted pictures on my blog on Nov. 27th, 2013. So, find that on the right hand side of my blog posts and see how those turned out then and then see how I modified it to be easier this year. I hope you enjoy this video and would love for you to leave me a message on my blog or in Google+.
I hope you enjoyed that video. I hope to be able to bring more to you in the future. I hope to learn more about videos and making them as time goes along. I am so thankful for my husband. He has been helping me to get set up a little better. It's not anything you will notice from the videos, but it is what I notice and how I can see what I'm doing, and I can see what y'all are seeing as I do it and it helps me keep it in frame a bit better for y'all. Anyway, we'll see what the future looks like for me and making videos. I just hope y'all come along for the ride.
As I leave y'all this evening, I leave y'all with a challenge. The challenge is to read Luke's account of the birth of Christ. I will be sharing with y'all in a few days my take on what Luke has to say about it. I wrote what I will be sharing a couple of years ago. I've been doing a Bible study on the birth of Christ and reading a book I have called "What the Bible is All About", by Henrietta C. Mears and it is a great book with lots of info at your fingertips. This book was first written in 1953. The revised edition that I have is the 1983 edition. Some stuff never goes out of style and that is the case with this book. All the info is still applicable, simply because the Bible is still applicable to our lives. Most of the books we read have no direct application to the way we live our lives. The Bible is the one and only book that we will ever read that can so affect our lives that it can bring about total restoration if we let the radical Words impact us enough to radically change us. Why do we need total restoration? Because we are all totally sinners! Christ is the radical change that we ALL need! Christ is the radical change "for" ALL! Not ALL will accept the radical change that Christ offers, although it has been and is freely offered to every human being; past, present and future. So, I would love for y'all to read the first two chapters of Luke and then we will look at it closer and maybe we can see ourselves in Luke's account of the Birth of Jesus Christ.
Ladybug, Sweetpea loves you and hopes you are keeping your toes warm!
Till we meet right back here again in a few days, stay warm y'all! Remember that God loves y'all and so do I!!!! hugs, Patty
