Devotional About Showing Mercy to Others
Happy Sunday! Do you ever wish you could have a "bird's view" of life so that you could have a clear perspective and see everything all at once? God wants us to take the higher perspective and overview when interacting with others. He wants us to look beyond people's behavior and see their stories, see their pain. When we remember that everyone has something they are dealing with, it easier to show them mercy rather than judgement, love rather than disdain. Take the time to really see people, and be patient and merciful with the hard to love people in your life.

12 Days of Christmas Day 2 Scrap Wood Card Holder

I just remembered most years I write a bad days of Christmas rhyme for each day. I totally forgot this year. I think I am going to pretend I didn't remember and leave the bad rhymes out this year. 😆

12 Days of Christmas Ideas Day 1 Tart Pan Snowman

Welcome to my 8th annual 12 Days of Christmas posts. Every year, I think, am I really going to do this again? But, I love Christmas and I love sharing ideas with you, so here we go!

12 Days of Christmas Ideas Day 1 Tart Pan Snowman
We are starting simple (and we may stay that way for all 12 projects!), with a couple easy to find thrift store finds.

Tart pans are plentiful at thrift stores, maybe because no one makes tarts anymore. These two rings were purchased together, along with a couple cream colored wool sweaters (I wasn't sure which one I wanted to use). Choose wool to prevent unraveling.

I simply drilled a hole in the rim of each tart pan and used wire to secure them to each other.

I cut the sleeve off of the wool sweater, after washing and drying it in hot water.

I also cut the band off the sweater, tying a knot where the side seam was. I cut the scarf to the length I wanted after I glued it to the "neck" of the snowman and I cut fringes into the end of it.

A little hot glue secured the hat and scarf to the tart pan snowman.

I used a piece of twine around the top sweater cuff to make the top of the hat. I also added a pine spring and berries (also from the thrift store) with hot glue.

You can spray paint the rings white if you like, add a red or plaid sweater hat and scarf.

A simple, quick, sweet snowman for only a few dollars.

Sunday Verses

Devotional on Reflecting Love
Happy Sunday! A good reflection accurately returns or throws back what is "put into it". In other words, "What goes in, must come out." When we spend time with God, whether it is in prayer, worship, or reading the Bible, it is reflected through loving others and being kind to one another. When people are unkind or rude or hateful, we need to remember that they are reflecting what they know and what has been embedded in their lives. We can break that by giving the unmerited love and forgiveness that is given to us by Jesus. The saying, "What goes around comes around," is often used in a negative way when we want someone to get what they deserve. But, grace says we don't have to get what we deserve. When we share God's grace and love with each other, we break the cycle and change the reflection.
