Can we do All Things?

Here is a lovely Basket of Flowers for Today

*

When you look at this basket of Flowers it becomes obvious that no, we cannot do all things.  For instance however much we love these flowers, no way could we possibly make one.   Alright you may say that we can grow them, yes of course we can but we cannot make the seed that they grow from.

Do you realize that the life force of the plant or flower is really in that tiny little seed?  If you cut it open you still cannot see or alter the life of the seed.  When things were first made they were made to produce after their own kind.  For instance if you plant one of the seeds from the above Basket of Flowers it cannot grow into an Apple Tree, Oak Tree or any other sort of tree.  The seed from the flower will have to sprout and grow and produce an identical looking plant from the one you took the seed from.

This has happened from the beginning of Time –  the Time of Creation when all things were made.

When you  think of it, all these hundreds and thousands of years Animals, Fish, Plants, Trees even us Humans all have been producing after our own kind, none have evolved from an amoeba as Evolutionists believe.

*

I thought I would put this Poem here today – because thinking of what is said above about Hundreds and Thousands of Years – Time is still much the same today, there is Morning and Night – Night and Morning – Dark and Light – Light and Dark, these you can see or understand.  Time on the other hand you cannot see or feel it is invisible but it is still real.  We know when it is time to get up from our sleep and when to lay down to sleep but you still cannot see the thing called TIME !!!

The above Poem is taken from one of my  books:

Here is a Bible Verse for today:  Philippians: Chapter 4 verse 13.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

*

That is good for us to remember each day in our everyday living.

Have a Lovely Day today with TIME to enjoy something nice for yourself.

Feel free to post this Blog to your friends if you would like to.

 

 

 

 

Let our Light Shine

Here is a lovely Basket of Flowers

 * I think this looks so pretty *

Mostly green leaves and some yellow Lantana but the Red Flower makes all the difference to the arrangement.

So when you make up a posy, vase or basket of flowers it is good to have a focal point sometimes, to make your arrangement look even more special.

Maybe today you could just do that as a treat for the room that you will be mostly

working or sitting in.

*

What about a Recipe then ???

Here we are:- 

Stuffed Dates ………

Pitted Dates + Marzipan

Cut a small slice of Marzipan

and put into the opening in the Date

where the stone has been taken out.

Arrange on Platter.

Cover and keep cold in Fridge until needed.

*

This is a very simple recipe and very, very tasty to share at a party with your drinks. !

A small slice of Cheese or Cream Cheese instead of Marzipan can be inserted into the dates.

*

So let your light Shine in regard to arranging a lovely vase of flowers

or even with your cooking your light can shine.

Also in regard to your Hobby whatever it is – let it be seen and enjoy what you are doing.

* So when your light shines it can give pleasure to others*

Here is a Bible quote about the light:

Luke: Chapter 8 verse 16

“No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed.

instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.

*

Today let us be like a lamp shining forth the light –

the love of The Lord Jesus.

Don’t let us be forever hiding the light that is in us.

Have a lovely Day

Instead of putting a photo of a Basket of flowers on this Blog – I thought you may like to see one of my “Oil” Paintings of these lovely Roses.  I think they look very pretty.

Here is a Recipe for you to try:

Chocolate & Almond Biscuits

1 large Tbsp.-Nutella;  250g.-butter; 1 large Tbsp.-Soft Dark Brown Sugar. (Blend well together)

2Tbsp.-Milk; 1 large-Egg (Mix well again);

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Now that our Winter is here:     –            it is nice to cook some different kinds of Biscuits (Cookies) and have with a lovely cup of Tea, Coffee, Cocoa or some other hot drink that you prefer for Morning or Afternoon tea.

It is good to share with a friend (or to invite a few friends) to share and taste your new Recipe.

  A casual Morning or Afternoon Tea for about an hour is probably very nice.  

Another thing could be to invite your friends to bring and share Biscuits (Cookies) that they have made, or to bring a new Recipe with them while tasting your latest creation.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Today is the Day that The Lord has made.  Let us Rejoice and be glad in it.

Here is a small Poem that I specially like;

Little One

Little one Sleeping There  –Tender love divine.

Little one sleeping there  – Are you truly mine?

Has God given you to Me?  – Tender love divine.

Has God given you to Me?  – Yes, –  you’re really mine!

I hope you have a lovely Day Today

Biscuits (Cookies) also make a lovely gift to take to a friend who cannot get out very often.

Flapjack Cookies?

* Just a simple Basket of Flowers today *

With Bougainvillea and some yellow Lantana. 

*

Sometimes you only need a few cuttings of flowers with some leaves from the garden to make a lovely arrangement.

I hope you can find some kind of flower from your garden or maybe purchase some from the shop – to make a special arrangement for your kitchen or lounge room.

It is amazing how flowers can lift the spirit  and we can receive some joy from their perfume also from their presence in our home.

Even one flower or a couple of small cuttings of green leaves in a vase or glass can be very nice.

In the kitchen if you put a sprig of Mint in a glass or other Herb that you specially like somewhere near the sink it is really nice to touch one of their leaves between your fingers and smell their particular perfume.  It can give you a lift in your spirit while washing up…..etc.,  Remember you can also eat one of the leaves off of your special Herb, they are very good for us.

Here is a tasty recipe:     (Have you ever made these)?

The Children will love them *

Flap Jacks: 

6 oz-Butter or Margarine;  6 oz-Demerara Sugar; 8 oz-Rolled Oats; pinch of Salt.

Cream the Butter until soft. Mix together Sugar, Oats & Salt then Stir into the Fat.  Transfer the mixture to greased tin 9” by 12” and spread evenly. Bake for 30 mins. At Reg. 5. or 180 deg.  When cooked leave for a few minutes in the tin, then cut into squares or fingers.

*

Psalm: 133 verse 1

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

*

We can dwell in unity with each other and share a Flap Jack…….How about that then???????????

Thought you may like a Poem – so here we are:-

Pansy Flower ”

 Hello, I am a Pansy Flower, with a face upon my Petals.

My face is full of colour – Purple, Red and Yellow.

You can see my face if you look quite closely.

My face looks to the sky.

Although I am beautiful I am really quite shy.

I hide among the taller plants, they are so high and lofty.

But I don’t mind a bit, because I’ll never – ever be lonely.

We usually grow in clusters you see, us dearest little ’Pansies’.

Children love to peer at us, they wonder if we can see them.

Yes of course we can.

We see the Sun, we feel the breeze, the lovely refreshing rain.

We love to grow in our little clumps and we cheer you up

if you feel down in the dumps.

I have no arms or legs you know but I have good strong

leggy roots.

So grow me in your garden beds or put me in a pot.

Just remember not to put me somewhere that is really too hot.

Remember I am your little Pansy friend

with a beautiful friendly face.  …

 

*Hope you have a lovely Day Today*

Happy Day

Here is a lovely arrangement of Roses on my old Vintage looking settee.

Sometime the old things are most comfortable and we don’t want to change them for upmarket looking things.

 As we get older it is nice to have our familiar belongings around us.

***

Many young people like to follow the newest trends in whatever the fashion is at the time.

 That is why we have all the Road Side Curb Crawl days to throw out the used goods and buy new.

Well some of us can’t keep up with the Jones’es nor do we need to because we like to keep our Vintage Treasure’s and use our hard earned finance to fund something else to use it for: – maybe a holiday or to help our family or friends.

However it is good to find a really good bargain along the Road Side Curb to help us when we are in need of a helping hand.

This is a good way to Recycle that thing that we don’t need any more:

Put it out for someone else to use or to treasure.

***

Well enough about recycling -here is a Recipe for today:

+ Cheese Dreams +

2 – Slices Sandwich  Bread. Cheese to cover one Slice.  Frying Pan. Oil for Frying.

Put cheese on one Slice of Bread, Cover with the next Slice. 

Cover base of Frying Pan with Oil, when Oil is hot carefully put in your Cheese Dream and fry until golden brown underneath then turn over and brown the next side.

* The Cheese will melt and be YUMMY! *

If you like you can sprinkle some mixed herbs on the cheese before cooking or sprinkle some Garlic on to the cheese for a different taste.

The best one I have found is to sprinkle some Thyme Herb on the cheese before you put the other slice on top.

Now that Winter is coming this is really good with Egg and Bacon for a hearty Breakfast or Lunch – or just on it’s own!!!!!!

This is also a good one to put on the B.B.Q.

*****

Here is a Bible Verse:  Psalm: 27  verse 1.  The Lord is my light and my Salvation – whom shall I fear?

  *  Well we don’t have to have any fear – 

we can make a Cheese Dream today and have a Happy Day  *

A lovely Basket of Flowers.

This was on our back Patio with Harry (cat) checking it out.

You may like to make yourself a really nice Basket of Flowers for Easter.  If you have a garden it is amazing what you can find in the way of flowers and leaves to make something special.  Put the flowers in a vase or jar of water that is if you do not have Wet Flower Oasis to put them in.

 Then stand them in some sort of basket or a larger bowl.

Once you have organized your lovely Flower Arrangement put it on a table or somewhere for you to look at over the next few days.

  It can bring much joy to any visitors or family that come to your home.

Here is a Poem:

All the Flowers:

All the flowers their faces lift

to the sky and never cry,

for anything us mortals need

except – maybe for their seed,

to carry out their fruitfulness,

of reproducing God’s good work,

in making flowers of glorious hue

for the likes of Me and You.
