How to make a miniture gift Bible (or you can purchase one at a Christmas bazaar)
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path [Psalm 119:105]
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! [Psalm 119:103]
The church ladies (First Baptist Church, Conroe, Texas) worked hard getting ready for the bazaar. Basically it was a simple sounding operation: sell admission tickets for $6.00 which included a box lunch and drinks (the 'customers' could walk around shopping and eating during their lunch hour), get as many vendors as would fit into the gym (I think about 33 bought booths), and award the profits as college scholarships.
Of course there were complimentary tasks which must be performed, such as sweeping up the messes they made. We were all surprised that Dot knew how to handle a broom. I taught her how she could lean on it when she needed a rest.
I would have taken some pictures of the booths, etc, but Mrs. Jim had the camera so she could get action pictures. But she forgot to take them. You can click on the ones we have to make them larger.
* Directions for making the miniature Bible:
I've had as a principle that I at least should answer and keep in touch with the ones that bothered to visit and comment on my blog.
Lately I haven't been able to do that, and that makes me feel so shameful.
I have been struggling with this chronic fatigue syndrome for two decades, lots of broken bones due to osteoporosis, arthritis and now also gastritis.
I am blessed to live in Norway. I have appointment with our family doctor once a month, physiotherapist once a week, and I go hiking and swimming also a least once a week to keep this old machinery running.
I have family, a few, but dear friends and best of all husband Gunnar and Serina who care about me, and vice versa.
Thanks to Teach Mary and Gunnar I also have reached a new level of enjoying photographing.
To me blogging has been about sharing, preferably of the good things in life. Thinking about my blog friends make me feel rich, happy and conscious about values and interests beyond my own sphere.
I will in random order thank Terry, Amrita, Mrs. Mac, Saija, Lidj, Crown of Beauty, Trish, Debbie, Sonja, John C, Jim, Teach Mary, Leora, Robin from Israel, Pilgrim father David, Annie, Julie LBM, Constance, Pat, Diane, Cheryl, Deb, Maria Stahl, The Montreal Sisters, Colleen, Kris, E G Wow (who taught me to enlarge photos), Carletta, ilandavita, Nora Johnsen, reg,
Ralph and Patti and Raven. You have all put so much wisdom into my life, broadened my horizon and opened my heart.
I will be back. I simply cannot be without you.Please bear over with me and say a prayer if you feel like.
what a gift the sea gave to us and we will ever love her. and pray for her to have a good rest!...love terry
