    Wishing You A Blessed Palm Sunday

    Palm Sunday Matthew 21

    Hello dear friends! I just want to wish everyone a blessed Palm Sunday, and to take this time to give glory to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ our savior. Hosanna in the highest!

     

    Palm Sunday vintage- we will come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves!

    Matthew 21

    21 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,

    Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

    And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.

    All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

    Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

    And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

    And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.

    And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

    And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

    10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

    11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

    Hosanna in the highest!

    With all the fun and excitement that comes along with secular Easter activities, let us not forget to focus on the true meaning of Easter, the passion of Christ and his glorious resurrection. What a blessed hope! Hosanna in the highest!

    Happy Easter time!

    Tips For Making Charitable Donations That Count

    Declutter and donate #habitatforhumanity

    Okay friends, it’s March! Time to start tackling the spring cleaning full force! To get started, take a look at your house— from your wardrobe to your basement, and ask yourself, “Do I really need all this junk???” And by junk, I am even including all of the extra vintage decorative items and holiday decor that really aren’t life necessities. We fill our homes with so many “things” that we really don’t need, and most of the time the excess items just end up cluttering our minds too.  After this last Christmas it seemed to take forever to pack away the decor and I have struggled to organize the basement ever since, so it is time get things under control! I am purging all of the excess this spring! For this great purging, I am focusing on donating to charities. I also want to make sure my donations go to worthy causes so I have been doing some research. Here are some tips for making charitable donations that count. *This post contains affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Read more

    Christian Living, Valentine's Day

    Finding The Meaning Of True Love On Valentine’s Day

     

    Source

    Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your day has been filled with LOVE. Yesterday I was taken aback at the crowds of frenzied and frazzled people rushing around doing their last minute Valentine’s Day shopping. It was almost as crazy as Christmas Eve! It made me stop and think about how silly all of the commercialism is, and what God must think about all the spending that goes into a holiday created to show people that we love them on one specific day a year!

    I also started thinking about people who don’t have a “Sweet Babboo” (as Sally calls Linus), or elderly people who don’t have children or grandchildren to visit them. I thought about the hurting people who have been broken and betrayed by infidelity, or those who have lost a loved one. These types of situations can make Valentine’s Day truly miserable for certain individuals. How could I share God’s love with them? How could I minister the meaning of true love, God’s perfect love?
