Month: December 2008 Homemade Laundry Soap – easy – still!!

I’m using the ingredients (above) + water to make “homemade” laundry soap – and after several months of doing so, I’m still pretty satisfied with the results.   I’d still use Tide if it showed up on my doorstep and I’d still use Downey if someone forced me to.  ~wink~  But for the first time in my marriage, I’m more concerned with saving money than I am with the most *perfect* looking clothes.  Our clothes are clean enough for me… and I’m sort of choosey. So… for the soap, one more time: I grate the Dr. Bronner’s Lavender pure castile soap and warm it up in a small pot of water on the stove. Then I put 2 cups of Borax and 2 Cups of Washing Soda in the 5-gallon pail  (I use this pail bcz it has a sturdy handle and a gamma seal lid that’s *easy* for me continue reading

Month: December 2008 (mis)perception — even still, God so loved the world that He gave…

And… isn’t this just the epitome of man’s view of self before God?  I’m pretty sure I haven’t been this naughty?!?! And yet… it was for sin and sinful man that God *gave* the greatest gift the world has ever known, the greatest sacrifice ever made and the greatest promise ever promised — the greatest promise ever kept and the greatest love no man could measure: the gift of the Lord Jesus. And yet… the world goes on in its perception: “just happy as I am, thanks” day after day.  A sad misperception of the Truth. There is none righteous, no, not one.  And yet we all want to think we’re just a-okay — that our lives are going along just fine and we don’t need any intervention or any interruption from any judge – and for many, much less: the Judge of all mankind.  We would like to think continue reading

Month: December 2008 It’s December 18th

I thought I’d better just log-in, write something, share a few thoughts or blog an entry in order to dispel any thoughts that I dropped off the face of the earth.  Or am still coughing.  Or am still sick.  Okay, I’m not sick… but am still coughing. It’s December 18th and all through the house every creature is stirring — even a mouse!  Little traps are all set with peanut butter and bacon — in hopes that the little creature would soon be achin’ and what to my wandering eye should appear, but more snow, yes, more snow is here!  I went to the window to see the great sight and low and behold more snow fell in the night and the whole world looks to be a beautiful, pure white! You have to know that I just sat down to type, forgot the story and so cannot continue the continue reading

Month: December 2008 more paul washer

Still sick… but not with the same thing – this is a new week, so I have a new bug… now the flu has come through our home and I, a gracious hostess, somehow seemed willing to host this unwelcome guest for the last couple of days.  I’m really surprised to have sickness linger… so, yeah… sick again. Cool to have the laptop here beside the bed so I can listen to tremendous sermons while I rest.  Gotta say… Paul Washer is probably my favourite to listen to.  But some of you knew that already.  With all the religious foolishness being “preached” and all the godless movies being embraced by “believers” it’s refreshing to listen to someone who is *willing* to tell the Truth. I’ll attempt to answer letters tomorrow – for now, have a listen:

Month: December 2008 Link Potpourri

Men Pleasers I’ve often wondered how, or by what means, the church will be carried away — what will it look like when the elect are deceived (Mark 13.22) and who’ll deceive and be deceived (2Timothy 3.13).  When “An influential evangelical leader is coming under fire for saying in a NPR interview he believes in homosexual civil unions and that Christians who oppose same-sex marriage and abortion may still find reasons to support Obama.” the  church ought to take notice! Perfect Turkey Every Time. No Kidding. Was your Ts’giving turkey heavy-duty dry?  Well, if you’ll follow Mrs. King’s advice, you’ll never have to serve dry-as-shoe-leather turkey again. She explains it quite well — you’ll have to bookmark this one when you want to prepare your next turkey. Browsing the News Did you think OJ would ever be brought to justice?  Me neither.  The judge called him “arrogant and ignorant.”  I continue reading
