Children are a Blessing

* Here we have a lovely Basket of Flowers *

The two red flowers are sleeping Hibiscus.

That is because they do not open up any further

than what you see in the photo.

 However they really do help to make the arrangement look

very pretty though.

*

As I do believe that children are a blessing here is my new book especially written for children aged between two to six years.  If you would like to see what it is about please click on the link below and if you like it maybe send on to your friends who have small children. 

Here is a recipe for today:

 

Recipe is taken from book “Carnarvon Favourite Recipes”    

“Carnarvon Favourite Recipes”

*

You need to click on (Buy on Amazon) to see about the book, as I am not very good at this yet and I don’t think the other links are working on here……!!!

Here is a Bible Verse:

Matthew: Chapter 19 verse 14

Jesus said “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them,

for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

I hope you have a good day today.

 

 

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

The above Recipe above is in this book:

Set Free

DoveBWhite.ani
Here is a Poem for today:  taken from the Book ‘For the Kingdom of God’ by Author J. Larman.

To be set Free.

I’ve been set free to Worship The Lord, our King of love for ever adored.  Holy Spirit you love Him so.  Teach me now, till into Heaven I go.  To be there with Jesus our Saviour above.  Filled ever-more with His glorious Love.

A love so big so strong so true.  Waiting there-also especially for you.  so don’t sit and dream of what might be.  God really is there for you and me.  Let us rise in the mornings and sing His praise.  Look forward now to those Heavenly days.

Here on earth you can have the Lord’s love. God sent His Holy Spirit, represented by the Dove.  If you open your heart to let Jesus in  –  He will take away your fear and your sin.  Then after that invite His Holy Spirit too to dwell in Him and He in you.

Then you will be set free to worship The Lord, Jesus Christ our King, who is also, – by Angels adored.  God sends His Angels to minister to us.  They are so quiet, never making a fuss and they love The Lord truly as surely we must.  So in God, Jesus – God’s Son and The Holy Spirit, let’s put our trust.

Bible Verse:

Ephesians:  Chapter 4 Verse 1

As a prisoner for The Lord,

then I urge you to live a life worthy of the

calling you have received.

*****

Well I believe it is really good to be a Prisoner for The Lord, so that we can walk in the Peace, Love, Contentment and Joy.  Also we can pray effective Prayers knowing that as a Christian Jesus hears our prayers.  Let us Pray and ask what calling we have from God to work for Him on this Earth.  It can be just something that we are comfortable with i.e. helping our families or friends, we are not all called to be great Evangelists but we are called to share the Love of Jesus and the Gospel to others.

*****

Have a lovely Day as you practice being

a Prisoner for The Lord Jesus.

*  God  Bless You  *

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.

Roses & Leaves

Flwrs+ Leaves
Here is a beautiful arrangement of Roses and Leaves from our Son’s garden ready to take to Church.

*****

It is lovely when you can pick flowers and leaves from out of the garden and make a colourful display with them. Sometimes there may not be many flowers growing in your garden but if you fill the pot or put them in the oasis to make an arrangement it is surprising what difference the coloured leaves make with just a few flowers.

I think there were only four Roses in the above photo and the rest were beautiful leaves, plus a gold ribbon tucked in with the basket of Flowers.

***

Just a small Verse below for today:

This is the Day

This is the Day that the Lord has made.

Come He say’s don’t be afraid.

Laugh and play, sing and pray.

Why not have a glorious day!

***

From the Holy Bible:

in   St. John: Chapter 13  verse 3.   it say’s

Jesus knew that The Father had put

all things under His power

and that

He had come from God and was

returning to God.

*****

As Christians we can take heart and believe the above verse that Jesus really did walk on this Planet Earth and has returned to His Heavenly Home to wait for us.

Flwrs+ Leaves

I hope you have a lovely Day today

God Bless You.

Walk in Love

ApricotRose100_5092

My Oil Painting – Apricot Rose.
Poem from Book: For the Kingdom of God – Inspirational Verse.  By: J.M.R. Larman.

 Love  –  Most Important

Love is the most important thing, Open your heart let it come in.  Only when you let love into your heart, can you truly make a fresh start.

Then you can learn to love your brother, Christian people should love each other.  Not just now but day after day, then together with Jesus learn to pray.

Give your Sister in Christ a smile, you may not see her for a while.  don’t let hate and misery and greed be in you or you can’t intercede.

Love is the important thing in life, not anger, hate, worry and strife.  So love each other as Jesus loves you.  Get on with the work He gives you to do.

Don’t look to the left then to the right.  Keep Jesus always in your sight.  He will bless you as only He can.  When you help Him carry out His plan.

Don’t keep asking for worthless things.  Soar to heavenly places as on wings.  Love, Peace, Joy and Grace are the blessings that win the race. 

Look at each other  – stop the doubt.  Don’t try to catch each other out.  We are not to judge our Sisters & Brothers.  Jesus loves each one  –  as much as the others.

 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.

God Bless us today as we try to walk

in the Love of God  – our Heavenly Father.

Upright in Heart

PinkRoses in vase
I thought a poem would be nice today, so I have taken this one from the book:
‘Godly Verses’  by – Author J.M.R. Larman.

God’s Love

Can it be Lord, that you love me,
as I sit and wonder about Eternity?
One day I should be there
with Jesus my Lord.
Who, I know by your
Angels God – is truly adored.
Almighty God,
Ruler of the Universe,
how can it be that you think of me?
Small and insignificant
that’s who I am.
Yes, you sent your Son Jesus
to rescue even me.
It is beyond my comprehension
to consider these things.
So I shall sit in
Your presence
and pray to believe
in your unconditional love.
Love full of peace.
Love without Measure.
Poured down upon us,
as we sit, stand or kneel,
in wonder and praise
at your
Glorious Presence
in Eternity.

*****

Psalm:  7 verse 10

My shield is

God Most High,

who saves the upright in heart.

*****

BlueDoveSmall

As Christians we are already saved and our shield against all evil is:

 God  (our Father in Heaven).

 So we must try to stay upright in heart.

I believe that means for us to think and act as well as we can while we live on this earth.

Let us be so glad that we can walk in:

 His Unconditional Love

Have a lovely Day Today.

God Bless You.

Delight in God’s Commandments

HarryCatFlwrs

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.

OOOO

 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.

ShepherdDove

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

Fresh picked for The Altar

FlwrsPg18

I thought you may like a Poem today:

 So here we are –

Why Flowers God?

Why have you given us flowers God?
So beautifully soft their petals are.
The colours, such incredible hues.
Softest whites and pinks, precious as a star.

Carpets of flowers cover the earth,
we don’t even have to reap & sow
because after the rains, in their seasons
the flowers burst through the earth and grow.

Some you have given to delight and please.
Some for their incredible beauty and size.
Others for perfume – aroma, so sweet.
All of them worthy of a grand prize.

Some are for healing, some just for pleasure.
They cover the earth where wild grasses grow.
Wild things of beauty, touched by no human hand.
The Petals come fourth and sway to and fro.

The stems are strong, the petals so soft.
The colours so different from species to species,
each petal so beautifully soft to our touch.
The petals are delicate, yet strong each piece is.

God do you watch the petals unfurl?
Especially the Rose Bud a Favourite of mine.
It opens up into a perfect flower
and always captures this heart of mine.

Thank you God that you have given us flowers,
to enjoy for all our days on this earth.
The beauty, the fragrance are blessings for sure
Thank you God for each flowers birth!
