Dear sweet ladies,
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. My girls and I had so much fun together, as you know we went to the Beth Moore conference. I trust that the word of God will grow richly in our lives and hearts!!! I can’t wait to dig in the scriptures for more treasures that He says we will find if we search. This time we are going to hide God’s word in our hearts even more. I am on a mission with my girls to get as much scripture hidden in our hearts as we can. Yesterday our Pastor said, “ To be so familiar with the word, that you can automatically hear His voice. That blessed my heart. I am not real good at the memorizing part, but my girls are because they are young. Smile! Not a good excuse for me!
After the conference we went and bought these sweet little notebooks and matching pens. They were 1.Oo each at the dollar Tree Store. Beth used a spiral index card notebook. Our first verse will be. Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. I have it in the picture above. If you want to join us buy a note book (recipe cards work) that measures at least 3 1/2” x 5 1/2”. Take the picture I have up and drag it to your desk top. It should be 3” x 5”. Print it off and glue it into your notebook. Grandmother’s, Mother’s, Aunts Singles, and daughters were called across the world to change their thinking. To hide God’s word in their hearts and to live a life in front of those around them. To transform our minds by the word and then to have a new biblical way of thinking. Yea!!!!!!! I am going to do my best. I will have new verses every other week, if you want to join us. If you have verses that you think we should memorize please let me know! Just not real long ones at first. Heehee,
May 1st is coming up. Here is an idea for a May Day Flower Basket! Very simple! Enjoy! If I could make one for each of you, this is what it would look like. Sorry you have to just enjoy the picture. :( that is a sad face.
I used the scripture from Song of Solomon 2:12. Type it out on card stock. Make it into a tag. I use a stamp pad along the edges of the tag. Punch a hole and hang it off the cellophane bag. So easy and fun for the one that will receive it. . Why don't you make some up for a nursing home. Call and see who doesn't receive visitors. You will be amazed at who you might meet!
Flowers appear on the earth; the season
of singing has come, the cooing of doves is
heard in the land. Song of Solomon 2:12
Little Miss Fluff's new Nest
One last thing before I say goodbye. Yesterday I knew that Little Miss Fluff could be having some babies. So after church I went out to check on her. I gasped!!!! She had 11 eggs before. She started with 12, but one had a little crack so it couldn't be used. Anyway when I checked under her there were only 2 eggs. I couldn't believe it!!!!! I was so sad! My girlfriend Gail was here with her family and they thought it might have been a snake. Yuk!!!!!! Made this Farm Girl not a happy camper! So I thought I had better give her some protection. She is in the Milk Barn now and I made her a beautiful new nest. She is so happy! It was a sad day, but now we gave her her two eggs and some new ones. We will start over again! She is such a sweet little Momma. She lets me touch her and check on her. That is really nice, because when they are nesting, they are not always like that.
Don't forget to sign up for the Beth Moore book drawing!! The post before this one!
P.S. Oops! I have to tell you one more thing. I receive wonderful comments and emails from you. Some make me cry, laugh and some make me want to dance. This morning I receive one that you have to read. Remember the post that I dressed up in my flip flops and garb!!! Well this is what a sweet comment:This just blessed my heart!
"I have to tell you Saturday morning I got up, usually pretty early. My husband usually makes the rounds every morning to check on the animals. 8 ducks (two are small), 2 little geese, 8 little chicks, 4 hens and 2 roosters. One we have pinned up he lost his little mate. So it was kind of strange he was following around our momma duck. Any way back to the story, I usually am dealing with children in the mornings, so I dont usually get dressed until they are off to school. But Saturday you inspired me to put on my flip flops and through a jacket over my t-shirt and capris (that is my night clothes). And check things out outside with my husband. Kind of nice since we dont get to do that to often "
