The Greatest Commands

In my choir we have a little four part piece that we sing called The Greatest Commands.

– – –

This piece is very simple, but it seems as though the simple things in life are the most true. We take many things for granted, but we also make things out to be greater than they are.

– – –

Today, I was looking at this song–Greatest Commands–and realized just how true these words are that I sing so often.

– – –

Love one another for love is of God

He who loves is born of God and knows God

He who does not love does not know God

For God is love

God is love

– – –

My question for You: What simple thing do you maybe take for granted but means much to you?

Water Color

I’ve tried my hand at water color for the last few days. One of my first favorite is as follows…

I thought it turned out pretty well, although as a friend suggested, I should have covered the page in water so that my colors would blend well together. Also, I learned that it’s best to sketch my piece and do the water color, then go back with a pen. My ink blurred just a bit… 😀 I learned my lesson with the next few pieces.

I just finished these last ones, and I can’t help but say that I am very proud of myself. I had to show my whole family, and now I am posting them, so… yeah.

My question for You: What are your favorite color combinations and why?

Delicious Cucumber Sandwich!

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a short little recipe for you all!

Unfortunately, I did not take pictures throughout the process, but I believe it is rather explanatory.

My version of this sandwich is non-dairy, but of course, it can be made the exact same way with dairy if you so wish.

Let us move on with the recipe!!!

Ingredients

  • Vegan mayo
  • Vegan cream cheese
  • Fresh or dried basil (fresh is the best)
  • Dried dill
  • Cucumber
  • Bread of your choice. I used a whole wheat, multigrain bread

Alright, so step número uno is: lay out two slices of bread (to make one sandwich). Layer one side with cream cheese and the other with mayo. The amount of both is dependent on your preferences.

Next, I layer one side with the dried dill, and the other with basil, fresh or dried. In my opinion, fresh is spectacularly, amazingly, phenomenally scrumptious. But, of course, this is only my opinion.

Now you will cut your cucumber slices. For this, I usually cut my cucumber by the length of the bread so that when I lay it on, it reaches both top and bottom of the bread. (Wish I had taken pictures!) I layer it pretty thick, cutting the cucumber into thinner slices. This step is due to your preference of how much cucumber you would like.

Then you put both pieces of bread together and for an aesthetically pleasing sandwich, I cut the crust off and cut the sandwich into six little tea-sized sandwiches.

This recipe is rather simple, but very delicious!!!

My question for You: Do you prefer eating a whole sandwich, or one cut into small squares as above?

. . .

I have been gone for a long time, and I must apologize for that, but I also must thank you for all sticking with me!

My reason for not having been posting regularly is mostly due to school. I have found myself distracted where I ought to be more focused on other, more important things.

I will be trying to pick up again, but slowly.

Again, thank you for being faithful and sticking with me!

Today I will be sharing a worship song with you, instead of my regular quotes. 🙂

Shout To The Lord

My Jesus, my Savior

Lord there is none like You

All of my days, I want to praise

The wonders of Your mighty love

My comfort, my shelter

Tower of refuge and strength

Let every breath, all that I am

Never cease to worship You

Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing

Power and majesty praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar at the sound of Your name

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands

Forever I’ll love You forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You

God bless, everyone!

The Perfect Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

If you’re like me, this holiday is almost pointless… I am only a High School student who had vowed not to be in a relationship until she is eighteen or older. Wow.

But you know, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just about the couples. It can be about families, friends, maybe even your pets.

As this day has been approaching I have been feeling rather gloomy, because I would like some appreciation from someone other than my family and my girl friends, but I also know that would distract me from my true purpose, especially at my age.

I feel as if the internet and advertisement campaigns make a huge deal about this day, and don’t get me wrong, I think Valentine’s Day is nice, and I don’t criticize couples who take advantage of it. But what about all of the young girls that are feeling left out, and then go and do something stupid because they weren’t a part of all of this?

Today, my Valentine’s is Jesus.

I am going to honor Him, love Him, respect Him, and trust Him with all my heart, because He is the one who is truly watching out for me.

This post may seem rather open ended, but I will leave it at that.

God bless, and here’s a rose for each of you. 🙂 🌹

My question for You: Do you have any special plans for today?
