Weekend Wanderings

It’s the Weekend!  Here’s what I think you need to do… (After you visit these awesome blogs, of course.)…find a theater and go and see War Room.  Ray and I went yesterday.  This is one powerful movie!  It will move you, make you think, and even shed a few tears.  It’s family oriented, but mostly for couples.  If you don’t leave wanting to make a change in your relationship with Jesus and with your husband…well, there’s a wall somewhere.

gate-quote-768x1024Matthew 7:21 is a powerful, profound piece of scripture.  Not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter heaven.  I’m often led to remember these words when I hear someone “sugar coat” the Word.  Over at Motherhood-Ruckus and Rubies Amanda writes thoughtful and provoking words about this subject.

Freebie Stitchers RetreatAre you looking for something new to cross stitch?  DMC’s Free Friday chart this week is Falling Leaves. It’s beautiful the way it is but one could also change it up by using different colors. If you want to try a more difficult piece Heaven and Earth designs is giving their Stitchers Retreat Chart this month.   Also, I have included a chart called “Blue Snow” that I just designed.  You’ll find it on the …Crafts and Cross Stitch page.

5309678In a very thought provoking post Bonnie at  More Than Just Coffee shares her struggle with those negative voices that can make us doubt ourselves and our abilities.   Her question:  “What are some of your mind games you need to die to, so you can live what God has planned for you?”

Father, I asking for the blessing of an awesome Labor Day weekend for my on-line friends.  Keep them safe and let them know Your presence.  Make it so in Jesus Precious and Holy Name.

  1. Such a great post!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J! Please don’t forget to enter the $25 Starbucks Giftcard Giveaway that ends tomorrow night!


    • Thanks Jess! Already entered the Giveaway, but if I win I will have to give it to a friend in Toledo or Ft Wayne because we don’t have a Starbucks close. What a surprise that would be.


  2. Hi, visiting from the Great Blog Train blog hop. I love cross stitch and embroidery, so I definitely have to check your stitches page in more detail!


    • Glad to have you here Teresa! I also have chart books on Amazon. Just search for Create An Heirloom Mandala or Create An Heirloom Christmas Card. I’ll be publishing a new one in the series very soon. Blessings to you and yours!


  3. By now Marie you should know I don’t say anything unless I can confirm it and it is not my nature to seek to falsely accuse anybody, Amanda has links to a Cult Website on her Blog, she had one link about the Trinity above the gate on her Blog when I followed the link you gave us, it is no longer there but I did find the a link on her Blog in Spiritual growth Archive but than it was moved to her God Archive, I have Screen Shots of both and the link to the Cult Website if you want them please e-mail me

    I have been in contact with this Cult Website that Amanda links to a few years ago and found they reject Scripture that shows they are in error. As you can see clearly by the Scriptures I shared with you The Trinity is a reality although called the Godhead in the Greek, do you agree with this Marie? because it seems Amanda doesn’t or why is she promoting this Website’s deception whom also claim there is no Hell but as we see in Revelation and in other Scriptures, this is also a reality, No God did not create Hell Satan did but it is still a reality that all those who reject Jesus as LORD will spend Eternity in .

    Blessings – Anne.


  4. Thank you so very much for the honor or mentioning my post on your Weekend Wanderings post, Marie! What a blessing you and your blog are to many! God bless you!


  5. Jesus shows us Marie who will not enter Heaven even though they say Lord, Lord….Faith without works is dead meaning what is God’s works, as we see below.

    Matthew 25: 41-45 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto Thee?Then shall He answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    1 John 3:16-18 Hereby perceive we the Love of God, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the Love of God in him? My little children, let us not Love in word, neither in tongue; but in Deed and in Truth.(KJV)

    God’s Blessings – Anne.


    • Anne, I do appreciate your comments. However, I have read and reread and tried to understand why you think Amanda is part of a cult. You are right I will not be showing the post you have written until I can get to the bottom of this. I will speak with Amanda and see what is going on. Thank you so much for your concern. Blessings and I’m really thankful you are healing. Marie
