Happy Chinese New Year 2018



A Chinese Scholar who came to know Christ said,

A man fell into a dark, dirty pit, and he tried to climb out, but he couldn't.  Confucius came along.  He saw the man in the pit and said, "Poor fellow.  If he had listened to me, he never would have fallen in."  And he left.  Buddha came along and saw the man in the pit and said, "Poor fellow.  If he can climb up here, I'll help him."  And he too left.  Then Christ came and said, "Poor fellow.  And he jumped into the pit and helped him out."

But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness."  Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.  2 Corinthians 12:9

...from the Love Chapter

It is never glad about injustice, 
but rejoices whenever truth wins out.
 If you love someone, 
you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost.
 You will always believe in him, 
always expect the best of him,
 and always stand your ground in defending him.

A lot of laminated love in the room!

Laminating your child's Valentine's Day artwork will be a treasure for years to come!

For a few dollars, you can take your child's masterpiece to the local printing place.  Depending on the size of the artwork and the store's laminating capabilities, you can choose how thick you want the laminate to be.

Each year, the laminated artwork can be shown as part of your Valentine's Day decor.  As the years go by, the simple artwork on display can tug at your heartstrings.  I have three grown adult children. I know that those earlier years with their name written in the unique style of childhood, holds a lot of sentimental value.

One caution:  if your teen is sensitive or feels they may be teased--hold off that year.

Personalize your Valentine's Day decor with laminated artwork from your own sweet children's hands.  That's putting a lot of love in the room!

Did you check your v-day mail box?

Valentine's Day is next week and to lead up to that special day, you can send mail for free--at home between family members.  A box of Valentine's Day cards or make your own, you can share notes with your family members.

Each member makes a box or you can buy one.  Metal mailboxes can be found at the store this time of year for as low as a dollar.  Using old extra valentines or new ones, each family member can make a note to the person sitting next to them at the table.  Rotate tomorrow.

On Valentine's Day, each person can look in their box.  Our family has also done notes for the whole month of February as well.

Maybe you have guests for dinner--fill out one for them to take with them.

Have fun putting love into action through a simple note!

Valentine's Day--Love Meal

Thinking ahead a little....

Valentine's Day is Wednesday, February 14th.  If you are like me and the middle of the week is not going to work to go out to eat, you might like to try the Love Meal.

The Love Meal is bringing something to the table to eat that is liked by each person who will be sharing your table with you.  You can ask your family members or check with some friends you want to invite over. 

Each person shares a favorite food item for the dinner meal--the Love Meal.  It's fun and interesting to see what comes together.

Happy February!

Luke 2:28-32

Luke 2:28-32 

“Simeon took him in his arms
 and praised God, saying:
 “Sovereign Lord, as You have promised,
 You may now dismiss Your servant in peace. 
For my eyes have seen Your salvation, 
which You have prepared in the sight of all nations: 
a light for revelation to the Gentiles, 
and the glory of Your people Israel.”
