Wednesday Testimony – An Atheist’s Story — Biblical Beginnings

Mr. Guirguis gives his testimony in the clip below, after you watch it I want to take a moment to discuss the negative affects false conversion has… Did you hear what Peter said? When things in his life began to get difficult he turned his back on God. Now we know that they go out […]

Sunday Storms

So far today we have only had rain. Having not checked the rain gauge yet I’m not sure how much but the ground is still soaked from the last days of showers. Several days . Earlier this week there has been over 3 inches in the little glass measuring tube. They are calling for more tonight and tomorrow with some being on the serious side. I’m not afraid of storms but do hold a healthy dislike for them especially those that come in the night. Kinda hard to see what is coming and we can’t depend on electric communication sometimes. The NOAA weather radio does get a workout in our Spring storms. And the alarm sound going off sends Babe into the frenzy mode.

Earlier I did take a picture or two of my garden problems.The first is weed MSU identifies as Dock.I don’t think there is a good use for it although the cows used to enjoy me throwing them a pile over the fence . Where it all comes from is a mystery because hundreds of little plants have been dug up and thrown away. The second is the neverending ant. I hate using toxic products but sometimes there is no choice and they still move over to another place only to require more toxic contamination.

The good news is there have been blossoms on the fruit trees and quince bush which the bees just love. No fruit but I keep the trees for the bees. They are eager to find what they can this early.

I’ll be back with more crafty expression soon.( Easter cards and a new batch for Treelady Nursery.)

Ya’ll take care and remember… This is the Lords day…Rejoice!

Come again soon and please leave a comment so I know you have been here. Company is always welcome.

Different Perspectives — Reasoned Cases for Christ

I’ve been doing a fair amount of reading lately, going through the Gospels again and reading through a couple of Christian books. I find that especially when I am reading through the Gospels that a number of different things happen. Often times I pray because God is making something within His Word very real to […]

The story of A Daffodil; a Poem; Happy un-Birthday Wishes; and a Handmade Card . . . — The Cobweborium Emporium

Back in January of this year, we had a smattering of snow here where I live in the South of England. Now snow in January isn’t anything unusual – for we are in the winter months and winter can bring forth all sorts of weather – snow being one of them. But what made the […]

How to Stop Sabotaging Yourself *NEW POST* — MakeItUltra™

By Dr. Perry, PhD “I am the greatest obstacle to my greatest dreams.” ~Craig D. Lounsbrough The subconscious mind is like an overgrown hedge maze. We enter it thinking we can quickly get through to the other side only to realize we are lost somewhere in the middle. How often do you set out to […]

Soulful Sunday

Ali,over at has a new meme . Now I’m not sure what a meme is but this what she says…

“I am wondering if there is room for a Sunday meme, open to non-gardener bloggers too?  I’m thinking ‘Soulful Sunday’.  This would be anything that makes you feel emotional, warm and fuzzy, grateful, inspired, appreciative of the world around us?  But also if you feel you need a little connection with positivity, a way of reaching out to others and feeling reassured that we are all part of the same universe, and that the overwhelming urge in this world is to share and understand one another, to show compassion and kindness.”

Well I do . .. Way back I was blessed to come across a wonderful blogger that I have never met in person and may never. But about that time my husband had a fatal heart attack and my world turned upside down. My new friend , and yes she is a dear friend, became my rock to lean on. Now a year ,almost two years later, I know I can depend on her to be there to encourage me and scold me when needed. You should also know she is probably much younger than I am but I love her like a sister,daughter, mother or neighbor and every thing  else between. She is a very talented artist and a grandmother so we have that in common, the grand -mother part any way. A few weeks ago she posted about finding a daffodil in the cold of UK and what a surprise it was. Well as fate will sometimes work another dear blog friend was inspired to write a poem about the daffodil. This other friend has become a special person in my life too so I decided to create  a special card for the two of them and here it is.


I already had this paper napkin with the tulips and daffodils so just adding the paper 3D daffodils from Elizabethcraftdesigns was a no brainer. I have been learning to craft these paper flowers from dies that Susan Tierney Cockburn designs. They are so unique and so much fun.

Treasure you special people. They come in when least expected and are a gift from our Father in Heaven. I haven’t checked with these two friends on this post but I am pretty sure they won’t mind my sharing how very special they are to me.

You might want to check out themindfulgardnerblog and see what some others are thankful for. In the meantime…Remember…This is the Lord’s day…Rejoice!

Thank you for spending time with me and do come again and leave a comment so I will know you payed a visit.
