If you know me personally, or have read my blog
for very long, you have heard me talk
about my dear friend Marci.
She's an amazing person who even
has her own store!
(which is closed at the present time)
If the Lord lays it on your heart, would you
pray for her?
She has an inoperable, aggressive brain
cancer. She opted for alternative treatment
and is currently undergoing treatment.
Here is a pic of us when we were together the last
I would covet your prayers for her, she
is in the fight of her life-for her life.
Thank you so much!
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above
all that we ask or think, according to the power
that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church
by Christ Jesus throughout all ages,
world without end. Amen.
Ephesians 3:20, 21

You can also insert easter grass in the bottom in whatever
color you want to highlight. That would also take
up some of the space and you wouldn't need so many
You could use plastic eggs for this -they used real...

If you want a true focus on the meaning of Easter, then these gardens may
be just the idea you are looking for!
*Just remember to keep the garden in a warm location with lots of sunlight and give
it plenty of water every day.
This link tells you how to do an Easter Garden
Enjoy your Easter!
He not re: for , as said. Come, see the
place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6

Thought I'd share some of the little things we did to decorate for
St. Patty's. Just to brighten things up a bit.
I found these silk carnations at the Dollar Tree
Also found the vinyl clover stickers there-placed one on this mirrored window
Also got the garland below from Dollar Tree as well.
More Carnations from them below--can you see they even have
a little sparkly clover in them.
I saw these cute glittery clovers, we used a hole punch
and put ribbon that we already had through the hole.
We hung them on the living room valance.
More of the vinyl cling decorations.
A little ribbon around our white taper candles.
Just be careful if you burn the candles that you do not
let the flame get too close and burn the ribbon-it
could start a fire.
Hope you found these ideas fun and helpful!?
We spent $7 on decorations shown :)

On those nights when you are running short on time, try this idea... Instead of making a meatloaf that takes a long time to bake, use your regular recipe, and put them in your muffin tins instead. Takes
only about 30 min. at 375!

We always bake on a snow day-which we had today!
Bri made gluten free corn muffins, and I made these:
Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookies
- 5 1/3 ounces (1 1/3 cups) white rice flour
- 2.5 ounces (1/2 cup) sweet rice flour
- 2 ounces (1/2 cup) cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (this prevents the cookies from spreading)
- 7 ounces (14 tablespoons) butter, softened
- 5 1/4 ounces (3/4 cup) granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
We made these today and did some cinnamon, some plain, and some chocolate chip. YUMMY!
