Monday Morning Coffee Chat

Hope you enjoyed your Easter SonDay as much as I enjoyed mine!  Pastor Hank gave such a great message yesterday.  Two thieves each on a cross, one repentant, one unrepentant.  One went to paradise and one did not.  Repentant or unrepentant, the only two choices we have.

Easter behind us and now it's time to enjoy the months of Spring.  I hope we have a long spring, I am not looking forward the super hot, humid days of summer.

My daughter, Tammy, is making some cute little girl things!  You can visit her facebook page, Sewing With Scripture, to see everything.  The little shoes she makes are adorable.

I started a new Bible Study last week with the MeadowCrest Church ladies.  It's great because it's an online study, I can stay in my pjs and join right in....!

“Vanity of Vanities…all is vanity…” So begins and ends one of the most difficult and challenging books of the Bible. At first glance, this book can seem like a depressing read. It emphasizes the emptiness of life and the vanity of so many good things we experience in the world. But a careful reading will show you that the full message is God-exalting and joy-inducing. In this eight-week Love God Greatly study on the book of Ecclesiastes, our questions regarding the meaning of life will lead us to Solomon’s wise conclusion: that in order for one to find meaning, purpose, and satisfaction in life, he or she must know God. To know the Lord, to love Him, fear Him, follow Him, and find our identity in Him is what frees us to enjoy the temporal gifts of this life and to look beyond those gifts to life everlasting. Journal along with us as we dive into Scripture together… reading and writing what God speaks into our hearts. For more encouragement, join us at for further insights, community and content to supplement your time in God’s Word!

We've been having pretty days,
the porch sitting has begun!

Last week the GLOW ladies discussed Chapter 5 of the Circle Maker.  I found these few sentences interesting...
At some point, most of us stop living out of imagination and start living out of memory.  Instead of creating the future, we start reliving the past.  Instead of living by faith, we live by logic. 

And this one:
When imagination is sacrificed on the altar of logic, God is robbed of the glory that rightfully belongs to Him

Mr D is wanting to have some landscaping done in the front yard.  Our yardman has given us the address of a yard he has done in a neighboring town.  So, we're off today to take a look and see what he does, then a little lunch and home in time for afternoon coffee!

Until Next Time


  1. Those quotes make for some deep thought! I am going to check out the link you mentioned! Glad to hear you had a nice Easter!! Good luck with the landscaping and be sure to share photos with us when it is done!

  2. Your pastor's message is so true, there are two choices we can make, and there is a world of difference between the two, thank you for sharing! Your daughter's sewing work is just beautiful, the shoes are darling! Hope you have a blessed and wonderful week!

  3. Love all the pretty pink here, Ms. Mary. We had a sweet Easter, too...just ate way too much. Please show pics of your landscaping along the way.
