Secret Place

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in Him I do trust."
Psalm 91:1-2
Yesterday as I was watering the plants on my front porch, I saw this tree frog snuggling up inside my rubber plant! I watched him as the plant uncurled ever so slightly, and he just seemed so content to be "hidden" in his new found shelter. I thought about this verse and how blessed we are to be able to hide ourselves in the "Universe Makers" secret place. Have you ever wondered where that is? Some things we just will never know this side of heaven, but what we do know is we can find a refuge in Him.
Maggi only has about 1 1/2 weeks left of her first year of college and she is planning on commng home and going to school closer to home. I guess she wants to hide herself in this shelter! lol
Gotta run.............Monday is comming!

First Fruits

First fruits....I was so excited when I went to my garden and saw these green beans! I have been keeping an eye on things and so, , it seemed to me, like overnight they got big enough to harvest. As I was picking them, talking to the Lord about first fruits and thanking him for them, I became less and less impressed with the quanity of my beans. Man, is this all there is ready? And almost as fast as I had those thoughts, I thought how God must feel when I get so excited about something I feel led to do for Him, and then almost as fast, I taper off, and soon, I am not doing anything at all. Its like I've run out of "beans to pick." I know there will be "more beans to pick" and God knows, I too, will continue to grow in Him and His grace. I just hope he will be happy with the fruits of my labor. I hope that I get to fix these for dinner tonight! Yummy. Have a busy day ahead......Hope you have a blessed day and something that was said in the "laminin" video under my posts just keeps going over in my head, that God is a Universe Maker.....isnt that an awesome thought?

Teri-ific Tuesday!

I have been busy here at the house...doing all the regular (yuck) but its nice when its done. Getting ready for our Phoebes garage sale this weekend. I just finished reading "The Sisterchicks do the Hula" and i enjoyed it alot. I am stuck on a series by Tracie Peterson (Heirs of Montana) ...i am on the book "The Hope Within" they are Christian historical fiction. Someone sent me an email...i cant remember who..about Laminin.... it is so cool. I am not sure if this is the right way to do this but please watch this video. And for all you Oprah fans... Sorry if I make anyone mad...but this is VERY scary. I haven't watched her for several years.. kinda had an uneasy feeling about her beliefs. I will try to link something on her too! Oh...this is cool, still lots to learn.....and a garden to weed.
Got the links going...check them out.

True Spurs Fan

Here is one of the pages I have done of Nate. It is so much fun to do!


This is just my way of trying to show all you guys what I have been up to lately. The picture of the butterflies in my heading was taken, by me on our last trip to Maine when we visited my grandfather and Stella. They were everywhere around those purple flowers. Hope to get good at this and not bore you too much! lol Well off to scrapin or something!
