Did you go out shopping and buy a new dress for today? Easter is always the day you see everyone out in their new Easter outfits in beautiful pastel colors of pinks, greens, yellows, blues and purples.
Just don’t forget the main reason for today. It is not about your new dress or about the candy and Easter eggs even though those are great.
It is about Jesus and that he died for each of us so that we may live. He Is Risen!!!Amen!
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Went to my second bible journaling class tonight. This is what we worked on tonight. Will show it again when I am finished. It is a WIP- work in progress.
I am taking a colored pencil class and we are drawing a fig leaf. This project took a few days, as I spent a few hours each time, working on the project. i started off with a new velvety leaf and by the time I got to the end my fig leaf was dry and crumbled up. Therefore my colored pencil fig leaf evolved through the days just like the real leaf.
This fig leaf reminds me of our lives with Christ. We can either be velvety fresh and green and always ready to learn new things through his word or we can become dried up and crumble if we let the enemy in our life and walk away from his word.
Spend time each day in his word and refresh yourself with his life flowing water (word).
Even though I don’t like eating figs I did enjoy drawing this leaf!
Our Pastor spoke about this verse Sunday at church and it really made me think about what kind of path we leave as we go through life and others see. I want my children and grand children to know and see that I follow the straight path. I am not perfect and I stumble upon many rocks along the way but I do have Jesus Christ who gives me peace and joy as I travel this path. I know that Jesus died for me on the cross so that mine and your sins may be forgiven. He freely gives us grace and salvation all we have to do is open that door and let Jesus in our heart.You will never be the same again. Some people think it means you become boring and no fun, a slave, chained, but it is the exact opposite. You are in chains and darkness until you find Jesus Christ.The freedom, the light, the love Jesus gives is radical. As you go through life, yes there will be sorrow and tough times, but deep inside you can find the peace and joy to survive that only Jesus can give. We have hope knowing one day we will be with Jesus Christ. So choose to walk the straight path that others can see which leads to Jesus and his love, peace, and joy.
In The Beginning- My NEW Jewelry Collection
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said let here be light; and there was light.
Sun Necklace- made from gold glass seed beads(gold for the light of the sun and seed beads because life begins from a seed.]], copper fresh water pearl, pirate, and all strung on metallic copper leather cord.
And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
And God said, Let the waters under heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear; and it was so.
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering of the waters called the Seas; and God saw it was good.
And God said, let the earth bring forth grass; the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind; and God saw that it was good.
And the evening and the morning were the third day.
Seeds of Fruit- Metallic copper seed beads, copper leather, faith charm and silver and copper colored bead. ( The berry color for fruit and the blood of Jesus who died for us, and the faith charm for all christians who have faith)

I decided to make jewelry today since I was off. The collection is called:”LOVE Jewelry”
The first piece ic called “Rose Marie”
I made a bracelet for my daughter, Andrea. It is called, “Angel of Hope”. It is made with semi-precious stones and 2 charms.
These 2 remind me of my sisters Liz and Madeline. The metallic gold one with Queen Elizabeth copper pendant and little heart squares reminds me of Liz, therefore named “The Liz Necklace.”
The orange seed bead one has a little heart pendant with a bull on it which reminds me of Madeline. Her sign is Taurus the Bull. It is named,”Orange Bull Energy Necklace.”
Of course I could not forget to do one just for me. “Faith Bracelet” it is to remind me of my faith and to put God first, Family second, and Work third.
