Vintage Scriptural Illustrations

Elijah nourished by an angel
This is the first one in the book… Not just the book. The Holy Bible I was given at a yard sale. It was falling apart in the bottom of a box of other old books. I also bought some others cook books and hymnals. Well seeing my first attempt at posting failed this is going on late and I am tired so I will just let you enjoy this one. I will tell you there are over 1000 Scriptural illustrations in all. I have a few projects I am going to try with some and others I want to add color. Any way stay tuned for many more to come.
I sure would love you to follow me here on my blog or join meon (LOL “like neon”)   facebook. O:)
PLEASE leave me a comment if you don’t how can I get to know you. I will never know you even stopped by.
I pray you enjoy these and that you are blessed with God’s grace, peace, light, and love today and always. In Jesus’ Service, Doreen


Garden Watering Ideas


I had bought one of those feeders from Miracle Grow at an estate sale and I loved it. Able to feed or water you could switch back and forth. Well it broke and I had two huge boxes of miracle grow left and wondered hmmmm guess I just mix it in a gallon jug and use it up…time gets used up that way too. Like I said many times before we love to cookout with friends so we have lots of old soda bottles the 2 liter kind. I put a scoop of miracle grow filled it and stuck it into the ground. Now back in my homesteading days of long ago. I used gallon wine jugs.
This trick was taught to me by a Portuguese neighbor who used to urinate in one and use it in his garden. I do not much want to do that but the idea was great for watering when I wasn’t home over a weekend. Up north water drips for almost  three days in a gallon wine jug.
Well back to the here and now… With an abundance of these and lots of plant, I  use what I have. Here in Florida the water goes quicker but it is ok I use it to feed really only and water regularly. This is my small garden center stage in the yard I keep tomatoes, culantro, flowers, chives, mint, seeds are started here too.
I have now learned if I leave the lid on and only poke a hole in it it may last longerI will keep you informed of anything new.

Tune up for these speakers

My husband in case you don’t know is a collector of speakers and stereo equipment. My prayer is it sells on his ebay or etsy shoppes
those are the links if you want to check him out and get some cool stuff.
So this pair of speakers were taking up the bed room before I moved in. Then they were occupying lots of storage space in his “store storage room”. So he was going to bust them up for kindling… 🙂 ( we have lots of fire pit nights w/ friends) Then I remembered the project I had been thinking about doing in the kitchen to makea breakfast nook where I can do my morning Bible study and devotionals. I had thought a corner table set with benches for storage. Hmmmmm put those on their side, put a lid on them, and a padded cushion…. So I halted him before he got too far. I took over so as not to ruin any of the pretty wood. 058
Then went out to the casita (that is Hialeah for “shed”)to look for hardwear to put on the door.
Husband… could you come show me how to put these on?
Thank God he knew how. Then working on the second one had to make a door from plywood because I used the back from it to make the first ones door.
Then knock, knock all work halts…
Great grandson arrives with Mommy…first time we meet!!!
OK so next day back to work…get-attachment.aspx1

I used the old fiberglass from inside the speaker as to not throw it in the landfill. But I covered it with some good old buffalo snow I had left from Christmas. Recycle and reuse, reduce and not buy. So the finished project….
Banging on the cushion padding like drums for a drum roll. O:)
Kitties have a spot in the sun and I got a nook and more storage. Best of all husband got a little room back in his warehouse part of our home.

I want to thank you so much for sharing in this experience with us and ask you to follow my Blogging adventures praising God and upcycling and recycling projects. Also please comment so I can get to know you too. and share us with your friends!!! Come check me out on facebook or twitter.
I pray God’s grace, peace, light, and love follow you today and always in Jesus name and service Doreen

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on.
lbb memorial day2

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.
I have seen Him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps; His day is marching on.

lbb memorial day2b
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His day is marching on.
I have read a fiery Gospel in burnished rows of steel; “As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal”; Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel, Since God is marching on.

lbb memorial day3
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Since God is marching on.
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat; Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet; Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me: As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free;
[originally …let us die to make men free] While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!  Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! While God is marching on.
He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave, He is wisdom to the mighty, He is honor to the brave; So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of wrong His slave, Our God is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Our God is marching on.

I thought it was interesting reading the lyrics of this song and was blessed to see God marching on. I know we are still in war here on earth in reality in many countries. There is a much bigger war going on spiritually. God already wins, He is asking now who’s team are you on…? If you believe in God and you believe Jesus is the son of God, that He died on a cross and rose again. Tell someone as soon as you can and get in to fellowship with others who believe the same thing. You can not go into battle alone.   I love you and pray you find peace in your path.
I found the lyrics in google search and the pictures are from Graphics Fairy and Little birdie blessings. I hope and pray you enjoy this post and please share this with your friends. Oh and leave a comment or else it is like you were never here. I don’t know you yet or maybe i do but I would love to say hello.

God’s grace, peace, light, and love to you always in Jesus’ service Amen

Cracker can Upcycled to a Rabbit Feeder

Ok this is an old idea I had back in the day. I have raised rabbits for along time. I fell out of it for awhile so now… I’m back into it. My sister got me a boy. Oh so cute she named him John 8 ( )  after the chapter in the Bible where the adulterer is going to be stoned. She opened it up to any page and that was the name she saw!!! And here’s Johnny… (in my best Ed McMahon Voice) Here is Wiki about him in case you don’t know.            Sorry for the side note. He was note worthy I think.

Did you know they multiply like rabbits…? O:)

Needless to say I have about 15 now and I am separating males and females and males can’t stay together or they beat each other up.

Tried to up add a video… will add as soon as I can figure it out. Or at least a picture of John 8 and his large family!!!

This is the container…

You get the hint from the picture of how it was a covered tin can. I cut a start with a sharp knife then used metal cutters to go across. Then snip pieces in the bottom half of bowl and bend over with pliers. This is to stop them from hurting themselves. Put the feed in put the cover on…
Wa La …

Dinner time for Blessed. Which is the bunny she lost her foot as a baby, not sure how. But her foot wasn’t one of those human objects of superstition. SO she is BLESSED!!!

I pray today for you who are reading this be filled with God’s grace, peace, light, and love today and show it to others . In Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen & Amen!!!

Memorial Day W/ God


Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13

Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. Romans 13:7

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me. Psalm 138:7

The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore. Psalm 121:5-8

To my brother SFC Delbert R. Nestell and all those serving our country I love you and pray in the Name of Jesus, God blesses you and keeps you in good health and prosper you all the days of your lives. God’s grace, peace, light, and love In Jesus’ Service Doreen


Bible Scripture to think about

Would it be you they were wanting to put out…? Sometimes it could be me, but God, knows the heart. God is the Ultimate Judge or really Jesus is the Judge because He took the penalty for our sins and god only hears and sees Him in our place.


Deceptions of the Last Hour

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the[a] Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.[b] 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

So after reading this which my sister talked to me about tonight. I could not help but think on my Bible study that I do in the mornings. The past week has been related to the Church your part, my part and Pastors part. Who we are to judge and how it should be done. Who we give authority to and who we listen to. Who should we keep as part of our body…

Before reading 1 Corinthians i read Matthew 18:15-20

Dealing with a Sinning Brother

15 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’[b] 17 And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.

18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

19 “Again I say[c] to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

I praise God for convicting me and showing me the error of my thinking and my ways. I just pray for those who know and do not heed. For those who have been warned and even the Church has spoken to.
