Always Thankful!

| Random

  This passage is one of my favorite verses from the book of Psalms.  Here, the author, David, is challenging us to “taste and see that the Lord is good.”  It’s interesting to note that he used two out of five of our senses to emphasize and describe just how good the Lord is.

I Love Paris! Bag

| Sewing

There is one place that I want to visit and that is Paris! Yes, it’s in my bucket list of “things-to-photograph” and my husband and I are dreaming making plans to go there one day.

The tutorial was simple, well written and well illustrated. Read more…

Pavlova

Four years ago, we visited family in Australia where I had my first taste of this delicate dessert: Pavlova. It is a meringue-based dessert with a crisp outer shell and gooey, marshmallow-like on the inside.

A Whimsical Eggciting Birthday!

| Challenges

Today is an “Eggciting Day” for me and the blog because it’s my birthday! Wooohooo. Thank you for all your love and kind greetings. Early this morning, we were able to catch the first of the Four Blood Moons – NASA says that seeing four complete lunar eclipses in a row is very rare and we will have one every 6 months until October 2015. We have never seen one so we stayed up late for it and it was amazing! We just stood in awe at how great and might God is – He who created the heavens and the earth. Read more…
