The Sunday Before Easter

The Sunday before Easter is a time of celebration. It is Palm Sunday. We celebrate Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The crowds greeted Jesus by waving palm branches and covering his path with palm branches. This event was written about in the first 4 books of the New Testament:
Mark 11:1-11, Matthew 21:1–11, Luke 19:28–44, John 12:12–19.

Knowing the story of Palm Sunday helped me as a young child to understand how loved and revered Jesus was. Helping our children to celebrate Palm Sunday can be both fun and a lesson learned. Read your favorite Bible selection from above. Make Palm Leaf Sun Catchers, and Color Jesus Entering Jerusalem. Then make and enjoy Palm Sunday Cookies.

Military Memorial Service Ideas

Military Memorial Service When a soldier falls, we have a military memorial service. Many grieve for a honorable son or daughter, sister or brother, father or mother, or a good friend. We grieve because we loved them for who they were, what they stood for, and what they sacrificed.  A man or woman who never thought twice about giving all there was to give. They gave their life for you and me. For our country's freedom, and our freedom of choice.

When planning a military memorial service,  you'll want to include a memorial gift for close family and friends. A memorial gift that comforts the bereaved, and honors the memory of the fallen soldier. A small but meaningful memorial gift will be cherished by all who receive it. has beautiful memorial gifts that fit your need. Personalized ornaments are an inexpensive memorial service gift. They can be hung on a Christmas tree, or on an ornament stand for year long remembrance.

and Personalized Wood Military Seal Ornaments.

If you need a large quantity of memorial gifts  for the military memorial service you are planning, please send an email and inquire the best possible price.

If you have a slightly more generous budget, you may prefer the Personalized Our Hero Picture Frame or the  Personalized USA Flag Military Teardrop.

Celebration of Life Day

Did you know today is Celebration of Life Day. In fact, January is Celebration of Life Month. Why celebrate life? Because the Bible tells us so...

This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24 

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth;
Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises.
Psalm 98:4

I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God.
Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

And if you have circumstance in which it is hard to find the joy today...

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
James 1:2-3  

 You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11

 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You,
And my soul, which You have redeemed.
Psalm 71:23

Bear Tracks

One day last week while I was driving my son home from the school bus, I noticed bear tracks in the lightly fallen snow at the side of the road. I said, 'Wow! Everyone says we have a bear in our community, but I've never seen him. This is the first time I've even seen bear tracks."

Naturally as soon as we got out of the car, my son had to go and see the bear tracks for himself. I followed along behind him. We noticed how the bear tracks meandered along the edge of the road for a while. Then all of a sudden, the tracks went back and forth and in circles, all over one another. The bear tracks filled a circular area about 6' in diameter in the middle of the road. We wondered why the bear did this? Was he chasing a squirrel for an afternoon snack? We so often see squirrels prancing about in that very area. Then like nothing had ever happened, the bear tracks took a straight and narrow path into the wood beside my home.

After our fun discovery, when I was nestled warm inside my home, I couldn't help but think how those bear tracks resembled my experience of the previous few days. I had a small problem. The first day my mind meandered back and forth on which way to handle my problem. The second day I got very tense and confused, going back and forth in my head with my two options. The third day I took my problem to the Lord in prayer. It wasn't long before the right answered seemed so clear to me. I followed the Lord's lead and took the straight and narrow path to peace.

 What a Friend we have in Jesus,
  All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
  Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
  O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
  Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
  Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
  Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.

 Are we weak and heavy-laden,
  Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
  Thou wilt find a solace there.
