Happy Easter 2024

On the third day, Jesus rose from His grave (Luke 24:6). We call this day Easter. He died on a cross and a few days later, he was alive once more - resurrected. How grateful I am for that, because that means I, too, will rise from my grave to live with Jesus and God once my life here is over. We must also remember the beauty in that promise He made to bring us to live with Him (John 14:1-4). But that isn't all. image courtesy of Kelly Sikkema via Unsplash Before He was crucified, Jesus told His disciples in Matthew 16:27 that He would return with the angels one day and repay each of us for what we have done - good for good, bad for bad. So, the Rapture and Judgment Day are coming. This means we will get to see Jesus ourselves. And Jesus adds more details in Matthew 24 about that day of Rapture when he will return for those of us who have lived for Him. He tells us to be prepared. He tells us how bad the world will look just before He comes back. If you watch the news at all, you

Where is Your Treasure?

Today, I'm asking this question - where is your treasure - because as we read Matthew 6:19-24 (NLT), Jesus tells us , " Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

I AM: Meditation 5

I want you to go ahead and prepare for today's meditation by getting your  relaxing music/sounds (if you want),  tissues, and water ready. Have your journal ready for today's entry after our session. Find a comfortable sitting position, and place your praying hands against your chest near your heart. Release any tension, starting with your forehead and your jaws. Next, your neck, shoulders, back, arms, hands, fingers. Finally, your hips, thighs, calves, ankles, feet, and toes. Let those stressors fade away. Let calm replace them. Relax. Listen to Meditation 5 . Today's meditation is based on Exodus 3:13-15 New Living Translation (NLT): Moses protested, “If I go to the people of Israel and tell them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you,’ they will ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what should I tell them?” God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. Say this to the people of Israel: I AM has sent me to you.” God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel: Yahw

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

Dollar Tree Rescue

I want to talk about extending the life of a much used item in today's post . The much used item I'm talking about is a medicine cabinet. Our medicine cabinet in the master bathroom is over 28 years old. And over the years, liquids, age, and perhaps some mold have stained the cardboard backing. It does need to be replaced at some point in the near future, but I feel like I salvaged it for a few more years with this Dollar Tree "rescue" self-adhesive decorative paper. They had a few designs to choose from. I was unable to find these online. But in the store, they are called peel & stick decals by Room Essentials 12 in. x 12 in. For a larger selection, you could also use self-adhesive Crafter's Square paper sold by Dollar Tree that would normally be used with a Cricut. Below, you can see my rescue makeover.

Update: Google Domains Sold to Squarespace

In my free eBook,  Google Blogger as a Website , I explain how to get a paid domain name from Google Domains. That option is no longer available since Squarespace Domains bought Google Domains in September 2023. More information is supposed to come along once the transition is final, and I will pass that along to you once that lands in my inbox. Until then, thank you for your patience. image courtesy of Squarespace Domains
