Back to school - back to reality

Things have been a whirlwind here since school started over a month ago. 

Jamielyn at iheartnaptime.net has some great back to school ideas - late yes, but there has to be some ideas you can use. Really like the cute clipboards, ruler wreath, and all the neat print ables.

This is my done list:
  •  tidying, laundry, and reclaiming the computer desk. I almost conquered it two weeks ago, but then life happened again . . .

  • organization in the pantry, a linen closet, and a small storage closet used for other miscellaneous items like fabric storage

  • shopping my house for items to be used in a different way or place 

  • made valances for our kitchen with fabric purchased at Hobby Lobby 4-6 years ago - may reveal in a later post.

  • gathered and tagged items for fall consignment sale

Southern Cal Boy is on a roll. He repaired the light switch in the upstairs hall and installed new bamboo roman shades in the living room.

Stay tuned.
The Jedi Training Camp details are still coming.
Happy Fall,
Candace Mommie

Amazing Grace

I have several posts I haven't posted because of  school starting and busyness - getting back into a routine. Haven't posted because I wanted to take photos with the posts. But this is just stuff. One day it will all be gone.

Instead I'm posting this now. Jesus loves you. He died for your sins. And Jesus is coming back.

In these uncertain times there is hope and peace for you. It only comes from the Lord Jesus. He's coming back and soon. If you don't know Him you can. If you don't know Him you will be left behind.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever (that's you) believes on His name should not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16

If you don't know Jesus as your Saviour you can.

The ABC's of becoming a Christian are:

Admit to God that you are a sinner. That you are sorry for your sins and turn away from your sin.

Believe that Jesus died for your sins and that he is God's son and that He paid for the penalty of your sins.

Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.

If you didn't know Jesus before I pray that you do now.

If you asked Jesus into your heart tell others.

Thank You Sandy Bradshaw & Those on Flight 923

 Sandy Bradshaw and I rode the same bus from the time I was in the seventh grade until about the time one stops riding the bus in high school. She was one grade a head of me. I remember her always being nice and always having a big smile.  
After September 11, 2001  hardly a day went by for years that I didn't think of her and her family, at least several times a week.
When I watch those specials on televsion about it I still cry.
523 NYC firefighters and paramedics lost their lives by respoding on that tragic day. Do something nice for someone today. Deliver cookies to your local fire department - we are. Visit a shut-in. Volunteer at your church. Tell your child's teacher "thank you".
Be kinder to everybody today.
We're all Americans.
Let freedom ring.
Please God, bless America.
