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 “…….
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
Christ …..died for our transgressions, and rose again – to stay :)
For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.
2 corinthians 13:4
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.
