A New Day

Image
Note: In a while I hope to get back to the series I was writing on, but I don't have the energy to put into research right now. Please enjoy my own study on some scripture I'm reading. I hope you have a blessed new day!  Today, as is every day we wake up, is a new day.  We get another chance to worship our Heavenly Father in the ways He has laid out that He wants us to worship.  He tells us of Himself in Exodus 34:6-7.  Here Moses had wanted to see Him andante told him that no he couldn't see his face but he would hide him in the cleft of the rocks and declare to him who He is and let Moses see His back. We ought to take it to heart when YHWH has said who He is- because literally no one else can tell Him who He is: YHWH passed before him and proclaimed, " YHWH, YHWH, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means cl

Prayer request and the next thing.

 I normally would be posting only about plants from scripture but before I do I want to ask for prayer from y'all. I'm scheduled to have surgery Tuesday. I've never been put under for surgery and I know I'll have a long recovery, leaving my household responsibilities to others. I've had a rough past year that hopefully will stop being so tough after this. Thank you in advance! Genesis 1:29-30  Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so.

But in G

What happened next

  Well on the fourth day YHWH created the sun, moon, and stars. I find it interesting that there was already light and plants but no living creatures before the sun. Of course the plants need the sun for photosynthesis which leads me to believe these were literal days and not a thousand years (or more) as some might suggest.  On the fifth day He created birds and fish- some of the first living creatures that need plants. He told them to be fruitful and multiply filling the waters and the sky. On the sixth day YHWH created land creatures and man. These are all significant in the order of things because without plants there would be no food for any of these living creatures. Without the sun, the plants would have no energy (though as a seed it would be able to sprout 🌱 under the soil and establish the roots). The whole order of things is significant.  So now there's man on the scene. YHWH Tod man to be fruitful and multiply like He told the other living creatures. He told them all g

How it all started

Image
Genesis 1:1-13      In the beginning (YHWH) God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.      And God said "Let there be light," and there was light. And God saw the light was good. And He separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and morning, the first day.      And God said "Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were underneath from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And He called the expanse Heaven, And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.      And God said "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear." And it was so. Go

Being Bubbie

Image
I wrote this back in November of 2020 when I was the Bubbie of only 3 little ones. Now the 5th one is on the way! I sure do love these grandbabies!!   You know, being a mama never ends but it changes for sure. I am now a Bubbie (aka a granny or grandmother as I called my two ancestral mothers). It means so much more than just mama did. I absolutely loved being mama to my two daughters but being Bubbie is a whole different thing. Everyone told me it was different- better even.... how could it be better when I had awesome daughters? They are still awesome and I love watching them be mamas too, but being Bubbie is so different than being mama. 

Preparing

I don’t know what kinds of lichens I have here but there’s lots on down twigs and limbs from the staghelm sumac trees I have here. Maybe it will make nice color for wool.

coming soon.....

In the spring I plan to be more diligent about posting here. It goes along with some ideas about natural dyeing. Currently I am waiting for some dental work this week that will have me out of commission for a little while. But stay tuned! Spring is around the corner!!
