Life is a cabinet……


 I pulled up behind a parked car the other day, and glanced at the license plate frame – “Life is a Cabinet” it said…

– I started to laugh.  Yes – I thought – it is a bit like a cabinet…

And I began to ponder how, as in our lives,  we put things in a cabinet, take things out…maybe hide things, change things etc…..and how in Christ Jesus – I have a BRAND NEW CABINET – and, though the old cabinet is still around, it is going; it is being cleaned out; and I no longer want to keep things in the old cabinet – I want to store  where they will be safe forever – not eaten by moths, or stolen, or destroyed by fire….stored in the new cabinet – where my Father is :)

Oh – and the license plate frame?   I looked again, and saw that it actually said, “Life is a Cabernet”….I laughed harder –

I still like “Life is a cabinet “…….

πρωτεύω (prōteuō)

                                                      preeminence chart

 I have listed this chart in the etsy shop, and am writing this so that the verses used can be read by all – how wonderful God’s Word is :)

                       (“Preeminence” in Greek letters/πρωτεύω (prōteuō) )


Giving thanks unto the Father…who hath delivered
us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us
into the kingdom of his dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:
Who is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn of every creature:
For by him were all things created,
that are in heaven, and that are in earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones, or
dominions, or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by him, and for him:
And, he is before all things, and by him all things consist
And he is the head of the body, the church:
who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead;
that in all things he might have
the preeminence.
colossians 1:12-18

TAST 40 & 39

I have been working on a piece that includes a piece of vintage silk (specifically, a piece of lining from a vintage silk haori – a Japanese short “coat” worn over a kimono), shown here with TAST week #40’s Beaded Hedebo Edge – this was a new stitch for me, and creates a pretty “ruffle” like row. The instructions for this stitch may be found here on pintangle.

The silk reminds me of  charmeuse; this is worked in pearl cotton 8, with little pearl beads……

On the same piece I have worked some patchwork of print cotton…

to which I added week #39’s stitch, Knotted Buttonhole Stitch…. a new stitch for me, and I like it very much….

The stitch was worked in coton a broder, and I had already added the running stitch which you see at the top of the knotted buttonhole stitches – I like them together :)

Come and join along with TAST, you will learn new stitches, and meet others who are stitching along too – no pressure, but great opportunities for learning, creating and gathering wonderful information from experienced and gifted embroiderers!

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 corinthians 5:21
He did that for you – your part is accepting on His terms

12 years ago someone took the time to leave a tract, which I found, that explained the gospel of Jesus Christ.  
 I read it… I then looked  up all the statements in a Bible to see if it was true….it was and is. That was exactly when life began – when I confessed my sins to God, turned from them, to Him, and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour – because He paid for all my sins – I could never pay, nor can anyone else – He did it all.  He alone is Saviour.
