TSMS- Beautiful Things

I found this while surfing around this morning. I hadn't ever heard it but I like how the words spoke to me. Only God can take the ugliness of our lives and make them beautiful for His glory. Even once we are saved, there are still times when we feel ugly and overwhelmed by life. I try to remember that everyday we are one day closer to Glory.

Free Downloads

Both of these downloads expire at the end of April.

Christian Audio has 1 free download book a month. I just that this month's book is the Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom. Normally this book is $14.98 This is one of my favorite books. Corrie was a POW during the Holocaust although she and her family were Dutch. They were Christians led to help Jews escape and they were caught. Love this book. I read this book years ago and then went on to read all Corrie's books.

Easy way to peel potatoes

Saw this while surfing around and can't seem to stop watching. I did love Gilligan's Island but this seems dumb to me. But being who I am, I can't stop thinking about it and now I have to buy some potatoes to see if it works.

Ok, I bought some potatoes and have to say I was disappointed. Mine did not peel like the video. I will admit that they started to peel but then it was stuck all over. I had to skin it off with a knife to finish. It did peel a lot easier.

Gum Soft-Pick Review

GUM Soft-Picks feature 76 soft, rubber bristles that easily slide between teeth to remove food. They clean deep and are more gentle on gums than wooden or plastic picks. They come with a portable carrying case so throw them in your purse, car, or desk to use whenever you need a quick way to clean your teeth!

I must be the last person on Earth who has tried the various toothpick alternatives but I just loved these. I was imaging something like a hard toothpick but they were very soft and worked great. I loved how they just slid between my teeth and the little bristles were like massaging fingers. It was pretty neat. (yes it does take little to amuse me :)) These were perfect for taking to work in my purse. I hate when it feels like something is stuck in my teeth and I can't brush.

Buy it here: You can find GUM products in your local store's tooth aisle. Click here for a printable $0.55 coupon good toward your next purchase!

Sweepstakes alert! Join Soft-Picks on Facebook and visit the special offers tab to enter to win $1000 in the "Get Social with Soft-Picks" sweepstakes. ( you know how I love sweepstakes so naturally I am entered)

I was provided a free sample from 360 for the purpose of facilitating this review. No other compensation was received and the views expressed here are my own.

TSMS- I'll Pray for You.

The last night of Jubilee was awesome. This group is the one I wanted to see more than any others. I know I posted this song within the past month but I truly love it. I first heard it on my way to work one night and wrote the radio station to find out who the singers where. The message last night was about intercessors that we have.
1. other Christians- 1 Tim 2:1- I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2. Holy Spirit- Romans 8:26-27
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

3. Jesus Christ himself- Heb 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Praying for another is the greatest thing you can do help someone. When we approach the throne room of God on someone's behalf, we are full of power. You will never know the disasters, demon attacks and heartache you have been spared because of someone interceding on your behalf until you get to Heaven. Pray for someone today and lift them up before God.

Spring Jubilee-Wednesday Night

Yet another amazing night. I love how much Spring Jubilee is helping draw me nearer to God. Last night's singers are known to everyone in southern gospel. The Primitives call themselves a quartet although there are 6 of them. :)

The preacher's name was Larry Brown and it took a lot for me to find him online :). He was incredibly funny but yet while you were laughing you got closer to God. His message was about how appealing God is to him.

Spring Jubilee- Tuesday night

It was another incredible night at church last night. The singers were Wilburn & Wilburn from Oaklahoma. They are a father son singing group. The dad, Jonathan was the lead singer for Gold City. Man they were great and God started moving while they were singing. Here is a song they sang last night.

They ended their singing with this song and it was totally amazing.

Brother Ralph Sexton from Trinity Baptist Church was the preacher. He preached about sheep and the good Shepherd. He brought out so many things that I hadn't considered. I love a preacher who helps understand and implement what I have learned. He compared Psalm 23 and John 10. Sheep are always someone's property, they can't survive on their own. So who's property are you? I am inspired to write a Christmas play based on what he spoke of. I am going to let that idea brew in my head a bit. I honestly believe that Jesus stands ready to come back for His people any moment now.
“When you see these things…”
“All these are the beginning…”
“Watch and be ready…”
“In the last days perilous times will come…”
Now, even people that do not attend church are having second thoughts.
“Something is about to happen!”

The bible tells us that as the end gets closer we should be together in church even more.

Hebrews 10:25 says Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Spring Jubilee

Thankfully I am finally back online. I had to switch from dsl to cable modem. I don't care what anyone says, DSL can't compare. Upload speeds were too slow for me.

This week is Spring Jubilee at church and last night was the first night. I had a wonderful time and was so blessed by God.

Archie Watkins was the singer. He used to sing with the Inspirations. Here is a song he sang last night. This song was written based on the email that went around about the old man who still goes and visits his wife even though she has Alzheimer's and hasn't remembered him in years.

The message was preached by Phil Hoskins from Higher Ground Baptist Church.

Here is a really cool idea that I think I will do for my grandchildren this Easter just because its different. Instead of that horrible plastic grass that gets everywhere and is such a problem, how about growing Easter grass! Isn't that a neat idea. It takes about 10-14 days to grow so I am posting now so you can get a head start since Easter is April 24th this year.

Before you get your panties in a bunch, I am aware this isn't true. Doesn't make the punch line any less accurate though. The great thing about this being my page is I can post want I want and you don't have to read if you don't like it.

Subject: Florida court rules on Atheist Holy day

In Florida , an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.

The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case dismissed!"

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your honor,how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant." The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists." The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April
Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned."
