You can take top off and put snowflakes inside the ornaments; to give it more decoration. I left it plain because right now it would be hard to find snowflakes in July. Another ideas would be that you can put christmas shiny confetti inside too. You also can make it FUN by putting Christmas M&M or Skittles. Add ribbon to it also. I thought I would leave it plain and let you put whatever you would like to put inside. It's so fun to be created and you will feel like that you decorated it too! It was not hard to do at all....I just put my letters on it...and TA DA..... it was done in minutes. I wanted to share some of my uppercase letters that I do alots on my crafts ideas.

Playing in the yard!

I went outside yesterday to play....,LOL
I was trying to take pictures of the hummingbirds and birds. When I saw them out by the flowers....I would go out to capture the post...but they would disappear. Finally I sat down on my bench on the front porch and took a chance from there. I did capture a pose of the hummingsbird. They are so quick....that I didn't make a very good picture. It's kinda blurred. But you can tell it an hummingbird. Look real close to the picture below on the right side of the picture. You can see it. I loves to watch the birds,hummingbirds,and butterfly. I never did catch the post of the birds on the birdfeeder. So maybe I'll capture them another time. You know what ! I didn't even get dirty.....playing in the yard. LOL When I was a young girl....I use to love to make mud pies. Did you? I have good memories of my childhood. Oh well, it doesn't matter how old you are......we can still play and have a great ole time. LOL You all have a Great weekends.

P.S. The hot pink roses and the lillies came from my garden. I did'nt have very many to take....I need to fertilize and give plant food. It's has been HOT here....I have to keep them water morning and night. It's been in the 90 to 100 degrees. We need rain to cool off. Take care! :) Smile!

Why Did Jesus Fold The Napkin ?

Tonight I got this e-mail from my sister (forward letter). I usually don't open all the forward letter. But this was so interesting and amazing! I thought I would share it with you all. When I got through reading this letter....I said, AMEN! Praise The Lord!

Why Did Jesus Fold The Napkin???
This is very interesting! I had never heard it before. Why did Jesus fold the napkin? Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection? The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly Folded, and was placed at the head of that stony coffin.
1. Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.
2. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, "They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!"

3. Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see.

4. The other disciple outran Peter and got there first.

5. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.

6. Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.

Is that important? Absolutely! Is it really significant? Yes! In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition. When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it. The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished. Now if the master was done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table. The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, "I'm done". But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because.... ......

The folded napkin meant, "I'm coming back!"

He Is Coming Back!!!
AMEN !!!

Before I was going to sign off.......I have recieve this picture (e-mail) from my friend, Dee. What a perfect timing?

This picture remind me that....One day the Lord is Coming Back!

Look at the Beuatiful Sunset!

Look at the SUN peaking out of the cloud!

Jesus Christ Our Lord is the Light!! May you all have A Delightful Day!

Jesus is our STRENGTH and HOPE!

"I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthen me". Phillippians 4:13

My mother wrote a poem to my daddy to expressed her love for him. I am so blessed to have a parents who loves each other so much. We had a wonderful time of celebration! We change our plan again. My mother felt a little better and we decorated the church and the family life center. Everyone had a part to prepared for the calebration. We all cook a dish to bring. We all had a part of decorated the family life. It all fell in place to a beautiful simple and elegant setting. We celebrated their vows first in the sanutary, then went over to the life center to eat dinner and cake. It was a private ceremony with our family. All the attendants was my parents, 4 children, and 8 grandchildren. Pastor Ken Reagan performed the ceremony. He did a wonderful presentaiton. Also my friend, Debbie and her husband came.

Christmas 2007

Christmas 2007

Today my parents is celebrating their 50th Anniversary. We have planned to have a private ceremony at church, and reception/dinner at Todd's place on Saturday, July 5th. We had to change the plan that we reserve in March because the owner of the place had a heart attack. My mama has been soooo sick the last 3 weeks. She is suffering with the kidney infections and pleurisy. She had went back to the doctor yesterday and got a shot. This was her 4th trip to the doctor. We hope she will be better by July 5th. My parent told us to cancel the ceremony/reception.. They want us to go to dinner at Sweet Pepper. So we are going to respect their wish. We decided to decorate my parents home with the flowers,pictures,book(Hope made) and cake to celebrate with them. We also going to sing for them (Karoke). We are still keeping some of our plans.. So we kept this to ourself. It going to be a SURPRISE to them. We want to show them the appreciation of our thanks. We are so blessed with a wonderful christian parents. We love them so much. They got marry on July 3, 1958. Raise 4 christian childrens.. They have 8 christian grandchildrens. My dad always give thanks that they have a wonderful christian family. During our planning for their Anniversary, something alway seem to not go smoothly the way we planned. So I want to close this post to encourage each one of you. To remember that the Lord is our strength and guidance. He always have better plan for us than our plan. " I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthen me". Phil. 4:13 .Keep us in your prayers....and we will take it day by day that the Lord has plan for us.

Happy 4th of July!
You all have a bless weekends. I will post pictures next week of my parent anniversary party.
