Old Book 2 freebie  

I'm sharing this one because it's so powerful, so hopeful, and so very clear on the conditions of this blessing. Most of us only hear part of this passage, never in context and it's always important that we know the context of a scripture. This is the key for America and all those who would prosper and have good lives:

"12 Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, 14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place. 16 For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. 17 As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, even to do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep My statutes and My ordinances, 18 then I will establish your royal throne as I covenanted with your father David, saying, ‘You shall not lack a man to be ruler in Israel.’

19 “But if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot you from My land which I have given you, and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples. 21 As for this house, which was exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the LORD done thus to this land and to this house?’ 22 And they will say, ‘Because they forsook the LORD, the God of their fathers who brought them from the land of Egypt, and they adopted other gods and worshiped them and served them; therefore He has brought all this adversity on them.’”" 2 Chronicles 7:12-22

Old Book 1 freebie  

“Now, O my God, I pray, let Your eyes be open and Your ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place. " 2 Chronicles 6:40

I'm sharing this one because it just touched me. It's part of King Solomon's prayer to God while dedicating the temple to Him. I love the sentiment and think it appropriate for us to pray over our places of worship too. And how did God receive Solomon's prayer?

"Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the house. 2 The priests could not enter into the house of the LORD because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD’S house. 3 All the sons of Israel, seeing the fire come down and the glory of the LORD upon the house, bowed down on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave praise to the LORD, saying, “Truly He is good, truly His lovingkindness is everlasting.” 2 Chronicles 7:1

Earth & Sky Alpha 2 and a Freebie  

It is so disheartening how the vast majority of those wearing the name "Christian" live with their heads in the ground, pretending everything's ok. It's a true statement that "all it takes for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing". We've been proving it in America for decades, and worst of all, the last three years. Wake up America! Wake up Christians! It's far past time for action and I pray not too late. Educate yourself as to the truth of what's happening in America and VOTE ACCORDINGLY before all is lost and we are free no more.

The picture above is from Fox news this morning. The article can be read here. It's not a new issue and there are so very many of similar import. I know we feel helpless, but we aren't, yet. Write your elected officials about things you see that are wrong, things that violate our constitution and our basic moral fiber. Fast and pray for God to extend his amazing patience and for His mercy to help us return America to a nation created for the sole purpose of freedom to worship HIM in any way we choose. As a former president wisely said, (paraphrased) as long as America serves our Christian God, America will be great. The audacity that our government uses our constitutional amendments to "protect" the "right" of citizens to produce pornography and even aspects of terrorism, but completely ignore the constitutional right to freedom of religion, the very first amendment, whether in schools, workplace, funerals or even in the pulpit is outrageous!

This is the first amendment in the Bill of Rights:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..."

My biggest grief isn't so much with a pagan government trying to do these things to Christian American, but rather with lazy, complacent Christians who do nothing, who hide from the truth and deny their true walk with their God. The Bible tells us clearly that we will have to actually put forth effort in our Christian walk, to grow as Christians and to protect the faith, to spread salvation and to serve the one and only true and living God. It was never going to be a matter of say a magic prayer and then rest in a pew once a week until we die and for some inexplicable reason the King of all creation would reward us with an eternity in heaven. Read the book! This is an active, vital, exciting and challenging walk to be in service to Almighty God. He has promised us that if we are actually living a faithful Christian life, we WILL, guaranteed, be persecuted. If you aren't being persecuted, you would do well to review your Christian walk and see if it lines up with the Word of God, which is what will judge all who ever lived in the end.

"Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." 2 Timothy 3:12

Jesus Himself told us: "Remember the word that I said to you, ‘ A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also." John 15:20

The hour is far past to act America! Write, call, pray, fast, talk to those around you, wake your churches to do the same and then VOTE! This one issue is just the tip of the iceberg of the ways our government is taking away our right to be faithful Christians. Look into it. The facts are available. We have even had Christian ministers in American jails for years now simply because they read the Word of God out loud in their public worship services - and still the American Christian church sleeps in it's blissful ignorance with their heads in the ground!

I hope you take that to heart, and now here is another beautifully detailed, partially transparent alpha that coordinates with my Earth & Sky Kit. It's a full alpha, upper & lower, numbers and punctuation. Click image to enlarge. Click Buy It Now Button below the image to purchase from my PayPal Store for $1.99.

"He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous,

Star Bright Kit and a freebie  

" Then he died in a ripe old age, full of days" 1 Chronicles 29:28

Given that I've been dealing with two elderly loved ones in hospice for quite a while, death and salvation for the faithful has been on my mind a lot lately. When I ran across this passage about King David recently, it just made me smile. I like the way this choice of words directs my thoughts and then by result, my outlook. It is good. :)

Sweetly Emobossed Stationery and a freebie  

"All that generation also were gathered to their fathers." Judges 2:10

No one likes to talk about death, though it is appointed to each of us once to die, and then the judgment. Hebrews 9:27 We say someone has "died", "passed on", "kicked off" and other phrases.

In reading in the Old Testament, I often come across the phrase that someone was "gathered to their fathers" or "gathered to their people". I greatly like this phrase. It has none of the negative connotations that others do. It cuts to the truth of the event - we are gathered to our fathers, our ancestors, when this life is over.

I especially love this quote, "All that generation also were gathered to their fathers.". I like the feeling of community that comes with being part of a generation rather than one lone soul entering the vast unknown. It not only has the warmth of being rejoined to those before us, but it makes a picture in my mind of this massive sort of filing system God has for souls. All that generation also was gathered to their fathers. Each of us tucked safely away, neat and in order, tenderly and lovingly, to await the judgment.

He does love every one of us. It breaks His heart that the majority of the souls He created will live their lives choosing to reject Him even after all He's given and done to save us, and have choose an eternity in hell over His free gift of heaven. There's still time to change your destination. How about turning off the TV, the telephone and all the other distractions and getting on your knees before your God in genuine heart-felt repentance tonight?

Sweetly Embossed Stationery is EVERYTHING you could want in soft, elegant embossing, even transparent elements so you can make even more embossed items to add to this GIANT kit with 116 pieces! Perfect for weddings, babies and everyday! Due to the delicate and subtle nature of this fabulous kit, items being shrunk for preview purposes really don't show the wonderful detail. Click the image to enlarge, but do download the freebie so you can really see a page of this awesome kit full size. Many of the papers are neutral with embossed designs and are lovely that way, but I've included frames/borders in the seven colors of this kit that lay perfectly on lots of the pages to cover the clear embossed border and add a touch of color. Just drag them on top the paper and center them! There are also oval frames that can be used alone or with the transparent scallops tucked behind them. It's such a versatile kit and so many pieces! Click the Buy It Now Button under the image to purchase from my PayPal Store for $5.99. This is such a special collection that I just couldn't stop...so there's an Add On Kit available too for $2.99 - details below.
