Music Monday- One Glorious Day!

Hello Friends! Thank you for stopping by. I do know it's not Monday but with all our Memorial day activities I didn't get a chance to post yesterday. Anyway, today I have a musical treat for you. One of my favorite hymns! Also, a video showcasing a modern version of the same hymn. Hope you all enjoy!

One Day!
by JWilber Chapman & Charles H Marsh

One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
One day when sin was as black as could be,
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin—
Dwelt among men, my example is He!

Chorus:
Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified freely forever:
One day He's coming—O glorious day!

One day they led Him up Calvary's mountain,
One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected;
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He.

One day they left Him alone in the garden,
One day He rested, from suffering free;
Angels came down o'er His tomb to keep vigil;
Hope of the hopeless, my Savior is He.

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
One day the stone rolled away from the door;
Then He arose, over death He had conquered;
Now is ascended, my Lord evermore.

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
One day the skies with His glory will shine;
Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing;
Glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine!

Here is the Casting Crowns version of this beautiful hymn:

Just a quick note about the music videos I post. They are all from searches on You Tube. I do not make any of them.

Hope you all have a beautifully blessed day!

A Boy & His Tools

Abraham was given some tools for Christmas this year...along with a kit to make his own tool box.
With just a little help and some of Daddy's tools too he was able to complete his project.

He was rather proud of his little box.
Way to go Boo! Love you!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
God Bless!

Ruffly Skirt for the Girl

Abbey is once again the recipiant of one of Mama's sewing experiments.
I found directions to a rather simple ruffle skirt in Simply Handmade Jun/Jul 2010.
Using the fabric scraps I created an aplique for her shirt and a bloomer for her headband.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a blessed day!

Showers of blessings (May)

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
In a previous post I mentioned showering some friends with gifts...HERE.
Well, I'm in a swap with a group of Christian ladies on Splitcoast Stampers called Showers of Blessings. It runs for 6 months...during which we pray for and encourage one another. Each month we shower two of the ladies with handmade gifts, cards and extra encouragements. This month I refinished these crosses I found at Hobby Lobby.
Hope you all have a beautiful day!
God Bless!

Pillowcase Dress


I found this funky pillowcase at a thrift store for 25 cents and just knew it would make a fun play dress for Abbey.
I also used the left over fabric for a hair tie.

She is very pleased with it and would wear it everyday if I let her=).

Hope you all have a beautiful day! God Bless!

Crafty Goodness- Framed Art

Hello friends! Just a quick post to give you something to look at (*smile*)! I made both of these last month to shower some friends with blessings.
 The flower on the above frame was created by me using ribbon and fabric. The ones below are store bought (I believe they are K&Co.).
The trees on both pieces come from a Quickutz special edition from a few years ago.
Hope you all have a beautiful and blessed day!

Music Monday- Love Never Fails

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a
Love never fails because God is love!
Have a beautiful & Blessed Monday!
