Flap Jacks

with Sleeping Hybiscus

A lovely Basket of Flowers for today….The Red ones hanging down are Sleeping Hibiscus, they do not open any more than they are on the photo, therefore called Sleeping but are very pretty and can grow into a nice hedge.  Geraldton Wax and Yellow Lantana with the Brown coloured leaves make a beautiful display. 

How about a Recipe:

Here we have one for Flap Jacks, the children will love them, they can be cut into squares and used for Afternoon Tea.

Ingredients:   6oz. Butter or Margarine: 6oz – Demerara Sugar; 8oz Rolled Oats; pinch of salt.

Method:      Cream the  Butter until soft.  Mix together Sugar, Oats & Salt then Stir into the Butter.  Transfer the mixture to greased tin 9″ by 12″ spread evenly.  Bake for 30mins.  at Reg. 5. (about 180deg Cel) When cooked leave for a few minutes in the tin, then cut into squares or fingers.

What about a Poem then ?

It is called –  * I Just Remembered *

I just remembered, did I forget to do that

or – did I do it and forget that I did it?

I forget now but if I do it now and

 I have already done it, that means that I

would have done it twice.

Best if I don’t  do it now.

 I may not have done it at all

if I didn’t do it in the first place.

What a dilemma, why did I just think that

I hadn’t done it, then think that maybe I had.

Well I remember thinking that I should

but I wonder if I did.

  The best thing is to go and look I suppose –

– now what was it that I think I forgot to do.

I can’t remember now, best to have a Cuppa

and think about it later.

***** Jessie

Maybe you can relate to the poem……as we get older it is sometimes a problem to remember where we have put things in that special place – the place where we thought we would remember that we had put them.  Eventually they will be in a special place just to surprise us – when we do find them.   !!!

Christmas Blessings



A Variety of Flowers make up a different kind of basket.

 Even putting in a couple of odd Vinca’s in makes it look nice. 

If you are not keen on the perfume from the Vinca Flowers – spray over the whole arrangement with one of your favouite perfumes.

These are set in wet Oasis, so will only last for the day like this.  It is best after using them for your display area that the flowers be tranfered to a vase when you arrive home.  They should then keep nice for a week in the house. 


This Poem reminds us of our loved ones that cannot visit us for Christmas.  It really is a Poem for someone that we know we shall not be able to see anymore for one reason or another.


There is an awakening in my heart to-day,

I feel that you are not far away

but I cannot see you anymore.

Although your memory lingers on

and in my heart you are here to stay.


The above is part of a  Poem  ‘Where is that Special Place’  from the Book: ‘Godly Verses’ by: J.M.R.Larman.


Recipe:    How about some Nibbles for Christmas:

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 a Platter, Cover and keep cold in Fridge until needed.

How simple is that then?  and they are very YUMMY!


2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6
And this is love; that we walk in obedience to His commands.  As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.


* God Bless Us for Christmas & New Year as we try to walk in love with our family & friends & people we meet along life’s way*

God Bless You.



Poem: Lost Land of Teaspoons & Socks

Hope you like todays Poem taken from the Book: Godly Verses by: J.M.R.Larman.

Teaspoons & Socks

Yes I scanned the Poem in so it looks a bit wonky – but never mind eh!

I think most families have a box or bag or container of some sort with lots of Odd Socks in.  When our children were little I used to keep all the Socks that I did not have time to pair up in a large cereal box – then when my Nanna came to visit it was one of the jobs that she used to like doing, pairing them up, so we did not have to send the children out in odd ones.

Years ago when one of my Brothers went to a wedding, guests were surprised to see that he had one red sock and one green one on….his response was that he had another pair like that at home.  They did not realise my Brother was colour blind.

How fortunate we are who can see.


Psalm:  13 verse 6.

I will sing to The LORD for He has  been good to me.


I Pray that The Lord has been good to you and that He will continue to be so.

* God Bless you today *






Beautiful Bougainvillea Flower

White Chai rFlowers

Bougainvillea and Lantana Arrangement

ready for the Altar.

The above arrangement looks so lovely.

They were all flowers from my garden.

It is surprising how nice you can make flowers look when you put them together with a few different leaves either in a vase or in (wet flower oasis)  in a a basket.

Sit the oasis in a plastic bag so that it does not drip into the basket or onto your furniture.

You can make some lovely presentations by picking a few odd flowers and leaves from around your house or garden.



Psalm:  121 verse 2

My help comes from

The Lord,

the maker of

Heaven and Earth.


I would like to say that The Lord God made all these beautiful flowers for us to enjoy day by day.

I hope you have the chance to look at a flower today and marvel at the soft petals and especially the perfume.

 Yes I know that some do not have any perfume and some smell peculiar – however there are special reasons for those.


Today is the day that The Lord has made – let us rejoice and be glad in it.


I hope you have a lovely day today.

* May God Bless Us*

Especially I pray that He will

* Bless you today. *

Love Endures

Vase of  Beautiful Flowers in my Studio


Today’s topic is “Love endures for ever”  –  well it is hard to believe that it really does.  When we love someone that love will stay in our heart always.  Even if we drift apart we will always remember that we did love that person or creature.

Flowers fade away even the paintings that you can see in the photo above may last for hundreds of years but will one day be no more.

However – the love that we once shared will endure forever and ever – even though we have parted, in the recess of our heart we will remember the good times, that surely is love.


Here is a Bible Verse in regard to enduring Love:

Psalm:  136 verse 26

Give thanks to

The God of Heaven.

His Love endures for ever.


Just think God Loves us forever – whoever and wherever we are.

We cannot get away from his Love, remember He made us and really does care about us.  He has feelings and is  very sad I am sure when we don’t even acknowledge Him in our lives.

So I pray that our God “The God of Heaven” will bless us today. Amen.

A Lovely Bouquet of Flowers.

It is really good that I can share some of God’s Beautiful Flowers with you even if only on the photo’s of them.

When you have a beautiful flower given to you or a bunch  –  or pot of flowers I think it is good to take a photo as a keep sake because they fade and die and the memory of them fades as well.

But it you take a photo it is a souvenir to keep forever. 

Today’s message is about WISDOM – well you might say what wisdom is there in keeping photo’s of flowers.

Wisdom is a funny thing – I mean, are we wise  – not really I suppose.  However it is a wise thing to remember and pray for the person who gave you the flowers and if you do happen to have photo’s of them (just the flowers I mean) on your USB or CD or Computer or Printed out onto a Card, the memory of that particular person comes back to you.  It is a wise thing then to stop a minute and pray for them.


Here is a Word for us today:

Proverbs:  Chapter 3 verse  13

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,

the man

who gains




This Flower of a Dog Rose is a Pencil Drawing with a bit of colour.

So you see you can save the memory of a special flower by drawing or painting it.

This could maybe open up a new Hobby for you.

Flowers are Lovely.

God  Bless you for today


the following week.

*** Have a lovely Day ***

Walk in Love

 Flwrs BlkBG on Stool

The flowers today are Geraldton Wax & Lantana with lovely Brown leaves and some Green ones.  They are in wet Oasis to keep them nice ready for Church.

As the heading says to Walk in Love –  it would be good to have a poem that relates to that.  The only one that I can find at the moment is this one.  Which I hope you may like – it is called:

Feel His Love.

Come along take my hand

let us run along the sand.

Feel the wet beneath your feet

think of Jesus on the mercy seat.

Run. run, run along the beach.

Jesus is never out of reach.

Stop and feel His presence there,

look  –  feel His presence everywhere.

In the light and in the shade,

even in the water as you wade.

Feel His presence  –  feel His Love

here on earth and up above.


The above Poem is taken from the Book:

For the Kingdom of God. Author: J.M.R. Larman.


Bible verse for today as follows:

2 John:  verse 6.

……And this is love: that we walk in obedience

to His commands.

As you have heard from the beginning,

His command is 

that you walk in Love.


Yes to walk in Love and holding the hand of The Lord Jesus would be great.

 But…..you can walk in love with your friend hand in hand or just beside each other.

To walk in love is really also to walk in Friendship with each other…..that is a nice thought.


Here I would like to put my first ever Video.  It works  better full screen.  If it does not work out for you just delete it  –  or if O.K. please share with a friend. –  that would be walking in love just to send it on maybe.?

May Jesus  Bless you today and always.







Delight in God’s Commandments


Harry Cat next to my Flowers

ready for  the Altar

on a Sunday morning.


Harry has gone to Cat Heaven now, he was a very faithful boy Cat.


 How lovely it must be for God our Father in Heaven to look and see that we are trying to be faithful to Him.

He gave us the Ten Commandments to help us to live a good life while we live on this earth.  It is very hard to keep the Ten Commandments I know but at least it is good to try.

When you think how faithful our Pets are to us – they love us with unconditional love.  That is how our God Love’s Us – with Unconditional Love.

We belong to God’s family when we accept:

Jesus His Son into our lives. 

So the Psalm below says that we are blessed when we find delight in His commands.

The thing is – that we can feel blessed when we try to keep His commands –  to fear the Lord is not to be frightened of Him but to want to do the right things in life.


Psalm:  112 verse 1

Praise The Lord.

Blessed is the man who fears The Lord,

who finds great delight in

His commands.


May God Bless Us Today as we try to be Faithful to each other and to our friends.

Poem about Flowers


 This is a Poem about Flowers I thought you may like it.

Poem Flowers for The Altar



 Sometimes it is nice to touch a flower or to smell the beautiful perfume, just imagine – however clever we are we cannot make even one single flower.    Yes, we can grow them but we are not able to make one that lives.

How does God do this?

We shall never know this side of Heaven.

It is incredible that they are made for our pleasure.

If you have no garden you may be able to treat yourself  –  to purchase a small flowering plant in a pot to  put for a while in your lounge room.

I hope you have a lovely day today.




This is one of my paintings:

Fantasy & Real Flowers.

God Bless You Today


This photo of Flowers is from my Mothers Day Bouquet.

A Gift from my family.


Whether you are a new or mature Christian, I pray that God will bless you as you read from these pages.

It is good to learn more of God’s Word day by day.

From Bk Cover

A Bible Quote will be put on most pages or posts of this Blog, with a photograph of some of God’s flowers in various arrangements.  Nearly all were ready to be taken to Church and put on the Altar.

Flowers are a Blessing from God

and can give much pleasure to many people.

Sometimes it is good to give a flower to a person to take home after the Service.  Many have appreciated this small gesture, especially if they are feeling ill, recovering from an illness, or visiting the Church whilst on Holiday.  Or give to a member of the Congregation for them to have a Happy Day!   If possible let them choose their favourite Rose or Bloom to take with them as a Gift for the day.  It is far better to give  –  than leaving them in an empty Church for the week.

I pray that you, yourself, will find time to look and see the flowers around you, the beautiful colours, the lovely petals and shapes plus the wonderful perfume.

They are incredibly made.

Find time to Smell the Roses.

God Bless You.
