Spiritual Sundays

Hello everyone and welcome to my Spiritual Sundays post. The other day a few of us were talking about angels and how popular they are now. I have a few of them around my home but I know the real ones look nothing like these. I came across this devotional by Anne Cetas the other day and thought it would make a good post for today!


I was having a conversation with some children about God and superheroes when Tobias asked a question. An imaginative, curious 5-year old, he asked anyone listening: "Does God have a sidekick like Hercules does?" His wiser, older brother, age 7, quickly responded: "Yes, He has thousands of them - they're called His angels."

Angels are a popular topic of discussion, and people believe a number of myths about them. For instance, some people pray to angels, thinking they are on the same level as God Himself. And some believe that people become angels when they die. But here's what the Bible, our authority, teaches:

* God created angels {Col. 1:15-17}
* Angels worship God {Neh. 9:6} and are known by these terms: archangels {Jude 1:9}, cheribim {2 Kings 19:15}, and seraphim {Isa. 6:1-3}.
* They minister to God's people {Heb. 1: 13-14} by guarding and protecting them{Ps. 91:9-12}.
* They are given special assignments by God {Matt. 1:20; Luke 1:26}.
* God's angels rejoice when we repent of sin and turn to Christ for salvation {Luke 15:7, 10}.

Only God deserves our worship. So let's join the angels in singing His praises!

All hail the power of Jesus' name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all.- Perronet

I have a prayer request: my cousin Cynthia's husband Jim is not doing well. He is suffering with brain cancer and lately, he has been having seizures. His cancer is progressing and they are doing everything they can to help keep him comfortable. Please pray for him. My cousin Cynthia needs the grace and strength that only God can give her to get through this. Their picture is on my sidebar at the top of my prayer list.

Thank you and the Lord bless you!

Pink Saturday

Good morning pink bloggerettes~ Pink Saturday is here once again and I want to thank our wonderful hostess Beverly for bringing us this pink party every week. Please click on her link
or the Pink Saturday button on my sidebar to go visit her and the other pink participants.

Ever since I got home from my trip to Vancouver, I have been going into Winners at least once a week. And every time I have gone in there, there were these pretty little tea plates in their own plate holder. They had different colours; some had polka dots and some were plain. They had the loveliest shade of aqua, I LOVED the aqua, and pink. The pink caught my eye because it is a perfect match to my Rose Chintz pattern.

So, after several weeks, I finally broke down and got the pink set. I think they must have been waiting there just for me!
They came all tied up with a matching pink grosgrain ribbon! There are six of them and at $12.99, who could pass up a deal like that? The little black carrier will probably get a coat of white paint before long.
They are the perfect dessert plates and see how well they match my Rose Chintz?I think they are so pretty together!
You see these pink roses? These are the same roses I shared with you last week! They are just starting to brown a bit at the edges. I would say they were well worth the $5 I spent on them at the grocery store, wouldn't you? I am going to dry them and tie them up with a pretty ribbon and use them as an accent on a table or shelf. They are almost there!

Well, pinkies, those are my pink offerings for today. Cannot wait to turn the clocks ahead! Spring is coming!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful pink weekend. God bless!
