Love Deeply

To love deeply is a beautiful secret of life. A famous quote from Helen Keller is:

All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

Loving God deeply (with all your heart, all your mind, and all your soul Matthew 22:37), He becomes a part of us. If we love our spouses and children deeply, they become a part of us. That deep love creates kindness in ourselves and those we deeply love, and as we become part of each other, we better serve God's purpose with the love we share.

This doesn't mean impersonation or trying to be someone we aren't. It's a natural occurrence that happens over many years. And that means that whenever someone dies - someone we love deeply - they will live on through us. And we live on through those who love us deeply once we pass from this earthly life.

That's why it's so important to stay focused on God and His will. What can we pass on to the next generation so God won't be lost in the generations that come after us? Love! Be kind, be forgiving, be gentle, be understanding. True, we can't love strangers deeply, but if we love God deeply, we feel and "give" His love to others. How would God or Jesus treat this person? The Holy Spirit may be working on someone, and the instant they feel God's love through our actions or words, that may be the turning point for them to accept Christ as Savior. Or the opposite if we don't show love through our actions or words. Sadly, that happens more frequently than the other does. So, let's concentrate more on having Christ-like love, thoughts, and actions to pass on to future generations, to perhaps help someone decide to finally convert to Christianity.

Smiles and love in Christ,

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Vinegar to Remove Sticker Residue

My first vinegar cleaning test involved removing an old sticker and the residue that was on the bottom of a very old glass pitcher. I've had the pitcher in my possession for about 5 years and have no idea the full age of this pitcher. So, it seemed like a good item to try the sticker/residue removal test. In my head, the sticky residue is a germ catcher not to mention a plain old eye sore, so I actually try to get rid of that residue as soon as I remove any sticker myself. The idea is to remove goo from stickers, bumper stickers, labels, decals, etc. by repeatedly wiping with vinegar. So, first, I sprayed vinegar onto the sticker/residue section of the pitcher. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrubbed the section with a paper towel and my nail. The sticker part came off rather easily with some umph. I sprayed more vinegar onto the residue that remained and let it stand for another 5 minutes. With a hard push with my nail over the paper towel, most of the residue came off. So
