Things to remember…

Affection Check


“I will not love a world that crucified Him,

neither cherish nor endure the sin that put Him to grief,

nor suffer Him to be wounded by others”

(Valley of Vision, p. 115).


“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:15-17).

Chocolate Chunk Healthiness


I am great at collecting ideas on pinterest. I am so-so at actually doing anything with them. This week, however, I’m on a kick implementing one after another. The egg yolk glossy hair trick did not go well. Neither did the soap-scum remover, clearly intended for a glass door not tiles. But the gluten-free chocolate chunk vitatop knock-off muffins I threw together last night? Amazing. They could fit into just about any diet with slight alterations if needed (e.g sub out yogurt to go nondairy). As is they are wheat & nut free. We are talking delicious and nutritious, ingredients like oats, greek yogurt, and applesauce, stats like 95 cal, 3 g fat, 4 g sugar for a HUGE muffin (half that for a normal sized one), moist, chocolately, delish. Check out the blog, whip some up, and amaze yourself. You will not be sorry.

Made for More


“Your place in heaven will seem to be made for you and you alone, because you were made for it — made for it stitch by stitch as a glove is made for a hand.” 
– C.S. Lewis, from The Problem of Pain

Extreme Makeover: Chair Edition


Thanks to my hardworking dad, visionary mom and the generosity of both, our kitchen chairs got a major makeover while they were in town! Disassembled, spray painted, new fabric stapled on (and scotch-guarded!), and reassembled! Quite the project, quite the improvement!

That’s the “before” chair on the right and “after” on the left. Feeling dyslexic that day I guess.




Here’s my second attempt at a shadowbox (first was Display on a Tray). It made a great end-of-the-year teacher gift!
