Beautiful Full Moon

This morning, as I opened one of the curtains in the house, a beautiful full moon caught my eye just before it dropped behind a grove of trees as it was setting. A clear, dark sky is spectacular to view anyway; I really enjoy gazing at the stars. But this view was utterly breathtaking as the moon had a bright halo around it this morning. So, that made me think of a few Bible verses to share with you this morning. Just a little reminder of how great God is and how beautiful His creations are. I hope you enjoy these.

From Genesis 1:16 - 18 NLT: God made two great lights - the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

Psalm 8:3 - 9 NLT: When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers - the moon and the stars you set in place - what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than [Yourself] and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority - the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!

Genesis 1:31 NLT: 31: Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day.

And this is a soothing song that I love to listen to - a combination of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World sung by Israel 'IZ' Kamakawiwo'ole, who passed away some time ago.


Enjoy your God-filled, God-created, God-beautiful, God-kissed day.

Blessings in Christ,

Patricia

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

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
