Works for Me Wednesday ~ Continue to Learn



So, what works for me this week?  LOL!  Learning. I am a..... woman in my forties and am still learning every day.  If a few days go by and I haven't learned something or had a great revelation in the Word (Bible), I feel like I'm slippin!  

Last week I set out to learn how to crochet.  So what works for me? YouTube! I learn on YouTube on an almost daily basis.  Please do not give me a book! Everyone learns differently and I learn by video and tutorial pictures. Do you know how you learn best?

I was on Pinterest and saw these totally adorable things made out of granny squares, so I set out to learn to make my own! 

First are photos of my progress and then I will include the video that I learned from. If you decide to do this, let me know! 

Do you crochet? I'd love to see your work.

(Forgive me. These aren't the best photos in the world.  I didn't set out to do a post about it, I was just recording my progress. ) ;)


I decided to take it bigger than a regular granny square and make a pot holder/trivet for the table. There are too many holes to use it for something out of the oven! LOL!!! Do Not Do That!

Works for Me Wednesday - Create



Have you ever sat down and had a desire to create or craft and didn't know what you would make or do?

I did that the other day. I had a bunch of necklaces that I decided I didn't want to sell and was left with several chains. I couldn't just let the chains go to waste so I got busy creating.

Basically, I started with some scraps. So take anything that YOU have whether it is scrapbooking papers, cork boards... etc. and think through the process of what you can make with it.

You can do a search on Pinterest for projects made with the scraps that you have.  For instance, do you have a bunch of old blue jeans?  There are oodles of diy projects you can do with jeans! Here is a Pinterest search for that: Pinterest Denim Projects

Now, get busy!  
  1. Find your scraps
  2. Do a Pinterest search for projects made with _____ whatever you have.
  3. Create!

This is the artsy necklace that I created and will be for sale in my shop soon.

I like it so much, I'm going to make another!

Most amazing... and beautiful... oneness

What a wonderful example of oneness in marriage!
Amazing
Beautiful
One flesh

I was researching through YouTube for Passover videos for church (we celebrate the way Jesus did) and I stumbled upon this most amazing, absolutely beautiful testimony video.

You can fast forward through to the part where you see the lady and man talking.

Weekend Worship

Don't you just love the faithfulness of God?!!!  He is so faithful... so faithful...

One thing I like to do is sing about God's faithfulness.  This is one of my FAVORITE songs to sing while I create or even clean the house.

What do you like to sing while you do things?

Does God forgive ALL your sin?



Not everyone has lived a pure life.  Some actually have sin in their past...present...future! I, for one, am thankful that the Bible says that God forgives ALL my sin.  He washed it ALL away!

ALL... that is an interesting word.  Wonder what it means?  I looked it up.  All means... all!  Praise the LORD for that!

Check this out:

Psalm 103:1-3aBless the Lord, O my soul,And all that is within me, bless His holy name.Bless the Lord, O my soul,And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities,

One benefit of the LORD (Yahweh) is the forgiveness or pardoning of ALL your iniquities!  There's that word again... ALL.  I am so glad He didn't go through my sin list and pick out SOME to pardon.

That was Psalm 103:1-3"A." What does the rest of verse 3 say?
"Who heals all your diseases"

There's that word again!  ALL.  ALL.  ALL.  

The Bible says that the LORD (Yahweh) heals ALL your diseases!  Hallelujah!  God is sooooo good.  

...but what does the Word say?
ALL.

I don't mean to shock you here but, some people deny the healing power of the LORD.  Some people actually think that God doesn't heal anymore.

I wonder why they pray and ask God to fix their symptoms if they don't believe in healing?

I also wonder why they go to the doctor and get meds if they don't believe in healing?  Isn't that a transfer of faith? Instead of "I believe God is healer" it is transferred to "I believe this doctor / meds will make me well."  So...  they DO believe in healing....from the doctor / meds!  

Their faith is in the wrong thing. 

I've seen people put their faith in Yahweh the healer and be healed.  I've also seen people put their faith in their doctor / meds and be healed.  ...interesting.

My faith is in the LORD.  The Word says over and over that He is the healer of my body.  

Yahweh Rapha
The LORD my healer.

Works for Me Wednesday



One way I save money... it works for me!

Once upon a time, Janet was hiking up Mt. Washmore (my laundry pile).  It was huge.  No matter how high one hikes up this mountain, she never reaches her destination.  ...smiles...

As Janet continued into the clouds on her hike, she found that she was out of fabric sheets.  Even though she knows FULL well that fabric sheets aren't healthy, she was being.... shall we say... lazy?  It was so convenient to just throw the sheet into the dryer.

What is an expert Mt. Washmore hiker to do when she is out of fabric sheets?  Oh wait!  She spotted a wash cloth just lying around.  It's actually in the shape of a fabric sheet.  (Does the shape matter? LOL)

Janet had the bright idea to wet the wash cloth, put a small amount of liquid fabric softener (which she got on sale for $1.66) on the cloth, and carefully throw it in the dryer with the laundry.  (She carefully put it in so that the liquid didn't get splattered right away on the laundry.)

Miss Janet discovered that her $1.66 fabric softener lasted for at least 4 months!  That is just .41 cents a month for fabric softener!  Approximately .01 cents per day!  (a day, not a load)

That's SOME savings!  ....Now if miss Janet could just figure out how to get her grocery bill down without super couponing...







*If you are the all natural kind of girl, you could really save on the expensive organic type of liquids as well.
*If you want to save even more, dilute your fabric softener with white vinegar... no it doesn't stink!


DO TELL!
How do you save money? 
Do you use fabric softener or vinegar?

This post was an adjusted re-post to start my new series based off of a previous idea. ;)
