“For He [God] says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength.” Job 37:6
Snow has fallen in 38 states out of the 50 according to the weather channel map. Most families are experiencing cold temperatures and snow. Are you enjoying the extra time with your children? Need some ideas for outdoor fun now that some of the most frigid temperatures have passed?
Some outdoor “snow” fun suggestions:
And not to be forgotten: Teach helpfulness, go with your children and help a neighbor shovel snow off their driveway or sidewalk.
God’s Word says in Job 37:6 that God tells the snow to fall. Wow, what a word picture. Share this verse with your children as you do fun snow activities.
Once you get back inside your home after your fun outside share this cute little video and song while drinking hot chocolate.
One of my favorite books about snow is “Snowflake Bentley”.
Parents, take time for reflection on the amazing beauty of the snowflake. See this video accompanied by a wonderful hymn.

Daily Truth: “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” Luke 15:10
To be honest, I woke up this morning not exactly filled with joy that we were starting a new year. The last two years have held enough sorrow and change in them to last a lifetime for our family. So, I guess the fact that 2014 is filled with a lot of uncertainties (like every year) just didn’t add to the excitement of a new year and new beginning. I also woke up this morning not knowing what in the world I was going to blog about. Since most people use January 1st to resolve to be healthier, I was going to post a healthy granola recipe that we make. However, I just didn’t feel that was what I was supposed to post. Maybe another time. So, I went down to fix our New Year’s breakfast. Unbeknownst to me, my oldest son was asking his dad how to get saved. Shortly before breakfast was ready, my 6 year old son, with joy all over his face, explodes out of his dad’s office yelling, “Mom, I just asked Jesus into my heart!” Well, that sent this mom into a flood of tears – tears of complete joy. That wasn’t all. Shortly before we sat down for breakfast, I couldn’t find my 5 year old son so he could help set the table. He then exploded out of his dad’s office with the same, “Mom I just asked Jesus into my heart!” Once again, this mom was sent into a flood of tears – tears of utter and complete joy. You see, we have been praying really hard that the boys would not only understand their need for a Savior but that they would, on their own, come to one of us and ask us to show them how to be saved. That is exactly what happened. What was even cooler was that right before Micah talked to his dad, my 7 year old daughter came to me and said that she just prayed that Micah and Sam would get saved this year. Can I tell you what that did for her to see God answer her prayer so quickly? Joy. Complete, fulfilling joy! Friend, if you are reading this and have no idea what I am talking about or have never experienced the joy I am describing, will you give me a moment to share with you. 1. You have to realize that you are a sinner (Romans 3:23). 2. You must realize that willingly gave His life for your sins (I Timothy 1:15). 3. You must realize that Christ did not stay dead, but that He rose again (I Corinthians 15:4). 4. You must realize that there is NOTHING you can do or say that will earn your salvation. You must believe in faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) and that it is a free gift (John 3:16). 5. You must confess your sins and believe that Christ died for you – make it personal (Acts 16:31, Romans 10:9). Satan loves to get us to believe that we aren’t worthy of God’s love or that God couldn’t possibly save us based off of our past. But the wonderful thing about that cross, is that God sees us all the same – sinners in need of a Savior. If you haven’t received Christ as your Savior and experienced this unbelievable joy that only God can give, will you do that today. If you have accepted Christ as your Savior, take the time today to thank Him for His gift of salvation and to ask Him to remind you of that joy. Some of my favorite lines come from an old hymn entitled, “Holy, Holy is What the Angels Sing“: Holy, holy, is what the angels sing, And I expect to help them make the courts of heaven ring; But when I sing redemption’s story, they will fold their wings, For angels never felt the joys that our salvation brings. I know my dad is up there belting out a loud “AMEN” right now. Until next week, Rebekah
Daily Truth: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
Gifts have been opened, sweet treats linger begging to be consumed, and the hustle and bustle of the last few weeks have subsided. As the new year approaches we think of changes we want to make in the new year. Maybe we want to eat more healthy, manage our time better, spend more time in God’s Word, or be more purposeful in pointing our children to Christ. What ever changes need to be made in each of our lives the new year provides a chance to reflect on the past year and make changes to the new year ahead.
It is good to know that Jesus never changes. There is no need for Him to change as He is perfect in all ways. Jesus is always there for us. He came to this earth so we may have an abundant life. We are thankful that He died for us so we might have eternal life. What a blessing to have the Holy Spirit to comfort and help if we have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ. We look forward to His return. How wonderful it is to know that God is the Alpha and the Omega (the beginning and the end). Revelation 1:8
Quote from Blue Letter Bible: “Not only will God exist undiminished everlastingly into the future, but He has existed identically throughout the infinite past. Not only has God himself existed eternally into the past, but so also has His plan for His creation. Before the foundations of the world, God ordained the Creation, the Fall, the Incarnation and Resurrection, and the Salvation of His people. This is a wondrous truth for the believer for it grants him confidence in the tenacity of his faith. Once a believer realizes that God has demanded his salvation and perseverance from this sin-stained world he can live without fear in the joy that God offers all of His children. Also of note is the fact that Christ is eternal in His sonship: He existed eternally before his incarnation as the First-Born over creation (though without human form) and will exist eternally post-resurrection as the glorified Son of God.”
Why we need changes and how to make those changes:
- We are sinners. Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
- We should always be growing in our faith. 1 Peter 2:2 “as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby…”
- We should always be growing in grace and knowledge. 2 Peter 3:18 “but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
- Read and study God’s Word. 1 Timothy 4:16 ” Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.”
- God wants us to grow in closeness to Himself. Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
Jesus never changes but we are always changing. The past year provides reflection and the new year provides a new beginning. We must prayerfully consider the changes needed and then discipline ourselves to accomplish those goals for the upcoming year. With our persistence, patience, and perseverance and God’s leading we will be able to accomplish the changes needed in our lives.
Blessings and a very Happy New Year to you and your families.

Daily Truth: “And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him…they presented unto him gifts; ” Matthew 2:11
Yesterday, was a flurry of gifts being given, meeting with family, and eating. Christmas Day is always a time of excitement – especially for the kids. Although, I think my favorite part of Christmas is hearing the kids squeal with delight as they open their gifts. Yet, as we pack up the wrapping paper and some the Christmas decorations (ours stay up well into January – I just can’t bring myself to have the season end so abruptly) let us not forget the greatest gift every given. The gift of Jesus Christ. Call me prejudice, but my oldest daughter wrote this poem and it sums up my thoughts quite precisely.
The Greatest Gift
The Greatest Gift didn’t come in a giant box, It came in a manger where animals eat.
The Greatest Gift didn’t come in nice read and green wrapping paper, It came wrapped in filthy rags.
The Greatest Gift didn’t come with a large bow, It came lying in animal-eaten hay.
The Greatest Gift wasn’t placed in a palace for nobles to view, It was placed in a barn, as perfect as it was, viewed by common shepherds.
But the Greatest Gift is a Holy one Sent from our Father to us.
Until next week and may you have the best of time with family and friends,
Daily Truth: “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalms 46:10
I don’t know about you but this is such a busy time of year! Now we are exactly one week from Christmas!! Agghhh!
Ok – calm down!
Add to all the hustle and bustle of the season, one of my little men has a birthday exactly a week before Christmas!
Talk about busy. We all are experiencing it. Christmas programs, school programs, gift buying, food preparing, present wrapping, parties, and the list goes on and on.
Every year I say to my husband, “Next year I am NOT going to be so busy at Christmas time”. And every year – it’s busy.
I think as mom’s it’s even harder to just sit back and enjoy the season. We want to be the best mom ever and meet the needs of all our family members and make this the “Christmas of the year”.
This week I was reminded of Mary, Jesus’s mother. In Luke 2 it says, “But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.”
Now “these things” refers to the shepherds and their news of the angels.
The word ponder means “to consider something deeply, thoroughly; meditate”.
Mary meditated on “these things”. Yet, somehow I think she meditated not only on what happened in Luke 2 with the shepherds and the angels but also on all the events that had transpired bringing her to this point.
Let’s think on Mary for a moment.
First, she is told by an angel that she is going to have baby. Yet, she will remain a virgin. Oh, and by the way, you are carrying the Messiah – the Savior of your people.
Secondly, her aged cousin Elizabeth is pregnant and her baby immediately sensed in utero that Mary’s baby was special.
Thirdly, Joseph is visited by an angel and told to take Mary as his wife and not to be afraid. Especially amazing considering that stoning is the custom for an unwed mother at that time.
Fourth, they travel to Bethlehem from Nazareth. No small journey for a pregnant women near her due date on a donkey. It was roughly 80 miles or about 1 week journey.
Fifth, she delivers her baby safely in a stable. Not her first choice I am sure.
Sixth, she is visited by shepherds that tell her a host of angels came to them and told them where to find Joseph, her, and her new baby.
Never mind that she had no idea that King Herod was determined to kill her new baby or that wise men would follow a star to find her babe.
Neither did she have any idea of all the events that would encompass her baby when He became a man.
Neither could she see the road to Calvary that He would have to travel.
Neither could she see the cross that her sweet child would hang on to die for the sins of mankind.
Neither could she see the tomb that would conquer death.
Yet, here she sat and pondered, meditated, thought on all that had transpired so far.
I am sure she was exhausted, overwhelmed, emotional. Yet, she meditated on ALL the events.
Don’t we get exhausted, overwhelmed, and emotional this time of year. Part of it is because we are so busy. However, we need to look at the example Mary set and take time to ponder, meditate, think on the reason we have Christmas.
It’s not the presents.
It’s not the food, the parties, the programs.
It’s not even the family time.
It’s because God became man so that we could one day live eternally with Him.
That’s reason enough to ponder all these things in our hearts.
Until next week,
Daily Truth: ” And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” Luke 2:12
Almost every home has some sort of Christmas tree in it this time of year. Did you ever stop to think how the Christmas tree can be a vivid representation of the Gospel? The Christmas Tree has a LONG history behind it, but I won’t go into that. Instead I want to show you how you can use your Christmas tree to teach your children about the true meaning of Christmas. 1. The Christmas Tree is “ever”green. God is everlasting. (Psalms 90:2) His mercy is everlasting (Psalms 103:17). One day He will set up an everlasting kingdom. (Micah 5:2) 2. The Christmas Tree points to God – The top of the tree comes to point, directing our eyes to the Heavens. God is the creator of all (Psalms 19:1) and is in Heaven preparing a place for all those who know Him as Savior (John 14:2). 3. The Star – The star at the top of the tree reminds us of the star that shown over Bethlehem directing the wise men to the Christ child. (Matthew 2:1-3) 4. The Angel – Some put an angel on the top of the tree reminding them of the angels that told the good news of the Saviors birth to the shepherds. (Luke 2:8-17) 5. The Christmas Tree lights. God is the light of the world. (John 8:12) God’s Word is a light to those who are in the darkness of their sin. (II Corinthians 4:4) When we know Christ as our personal Savior, His Word lights our pathway. (Psalms 119:105) We are then to be a light to those around us directing them to Christ by our lives (Philippians 2:15) 6. The Red Ribbon – The red ribbon reminds us of Christ blood shed for our sins. (Hebrews 9:22) 7. The Grapevine Garland – On our Christmas tree, I put a grapevine garland down the center of the tree to remind us that Christ’s ultimate purpose of being born was to die for our sins. The grapevine symbolizes the crown of the thorns that were placed on Christ when he was crucified. (Matthew 27:29) 8. The Gifts – The gifts remind us of the gifts the wise men brought to Jesus. (Matthew 2:11) They are also a reminder of the ultimate gift – God’s gift of salvation to all who will receive it.(John 3:16) 9. The Ornaments – The ornaments remind us of the jewels in a kingly crown. One day Christ will be crowned King of Kings (Revelation 17:14) for He alone is worthy. (Revelation 5:12). One day every knee will bow, confessing that He is Lord of all. (Philippians 2:9-11) As we get closer to Christmas Day, let us take time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. Until next week, Rebekah
Daily Truth: “O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth!”
Names are important to us and to God. When we know someone we use their name when talking with them. When we learn God’s Hebrew names we learn more about Him. Each name reveals a character quality of God.
“Wise men still seek Him.”
I have created a family “Christmas Advent Devotional”. Each day a new name of God is learned. A chain link craft adds enjoyment and anticipation to this study.
Day 1 of Christmas Advent Devotion: Yahweh (LORD) yah-WEH
This name of God by Jewish tradition was too Holy to be said aloud. It was said as YHWH without the vowels. YHWH is referred to as the Tetragrammaton (which means “four letters”). YHWH comes from the four Hebrew letters: Yud, Hay, Vav, Hay. The modern spelling is Yahweh and now spoken by Jewish people as Jehovah.
In the Old Testament, the name Yahweh, is the most frequently used name of God. It is found over 6,000 times. The first time it is written is in Genesis 2:4 where it is written as Yahweh Elohim (yah-WEH e-lo-HEEM). This name of God as you will see can be written as Yahweh or a long side another name of God. When written with another name of God a new character quality of God is revealed.
Read Genesis 7:1-3
“Yahweh said to Noah, ‘Go into the ship with your whole family because I have seen that you alone are righteous among the people of today. Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean and one pair of every kind of unclean animal. Also, take seven pairs of every kind of bird to preserve animal life all over the earth after the flood.’ ”
Yahweh is LORD (all capital letters) over all. Noah knew God and obeyed God. Because of Noah’s love of Yahweh and fear (respect) of Yahweh his entire family was spared from certain death.
If you would have lived in the days of Noah what would have kept you safe from the flood that Yahweh sent to cover the earth?
What today can keep you safe from separation from God? (Romans 10:9)
Yahweh, you are holy, powerful, slow to anger, continually loving, full of grace toward us. You know our sinful hearts yet you love us all the same. Help us to love and respect you and follow where you lead.

Daily Truth: “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalms 119:103
Sweets, sweets, and more sweets! It’s that time of year! Thanksgiving has past, the Christmas trees are up (actually they have been since the beginning of November), and the outside lights are up. The parties start up this weekend which meant some baking needed to be done last weekend. Baking is NOT my thing for three reasons: 1. My cookies rarely come out like the pics. (Those are NOT my cookies pictured above!) 2. The mess, mess, mess, mess ,mess! 3. Sweets are almost more temptation than I can handle! However, I do it for the kids. I am going to give you three recipes that we like and the kids REALLY enjoy making. Our favorite sweet treat recipe are homemade mints. These get made by the dozens and are handed out to our neighbors, teachers, and brought to parties every year.
1 – 8 oz package of cream cheese
10 cups of powdered sugar
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1 bag of semisweet chocolate chips
coffee, mint, or whatever flavor you want.
Mix the cream cheese in a mixer. Slowly add the sugar one cup at a time. By 8 cups the mixture should be able to form balls easily without crumbling. If this is the case – don’t add anymore sugar. Add the flavoring of your choice. Mix.
Lay wax paper on a table. Take the mixture and form into 1 inch balls. (This is where the kids come in. They think it’s like playing with play dough.) Place the balls on the wax paper.
In a double boiler melt the chocolate. Pour the melted chocolate over the balls. Let the chocolate harden. Place in small cupcake holders, place in a freezer container, and freeze until ready to use.
Side note: We used white chocolate with coffee flavoring for one set of mints. Andes mints are another option. You can also sprinkle crushed candy cane on the balls AFTER you pour the chocolate.
This next recipe is a little more involved but well worth it!
1 cake mix (your choice of flavor)
1 can of frosting
1 bag of semisweet chocolate chips
1 bag of milk chocolate chips.
Bake the cake according to the directions on the box. Let it cool COMPLETELY. Break the cake into pieces and throw in a mixer. Add the can of frosting. Mix until the cake and frosting are well incorporated.
Lay wax paper on a flat surface. Take the mix and roll into 1 inch balls and place on wax paper. (Hint: Have a bowl of water near by to dip your hands in. Wet hands work better in making these balls.)
Once the balls are made, melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Pour the melted chocolate over the balls. Let the chocolate harden. Place balls in mini cupcake holders, place in a freezer container, and freeze until ready to use.
Side Note: We have used peanut butter chips with chocolate cake, red velvet cake with white chocolate chips, etc. The flavors and varieties are as endless as the choices of batter and frostings!
Like so many families, we are starting to go gluten free due to one of my kiddos. So, I found this gluten free sugar cookie mix.
GF Cookie Dough
1/2 c powdered sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 c butter cut into small pieces
3 oz of cream cheese
2 3/4 c of white rice flour
2 tsp of vanilla
1/4 c cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1. In a food processor add sugars, butter, cream cheese, and 1 c of flour. Process until mixture is crumbly.
2. Add remaining ingredients and process until well combined.
3. Put in a bowl, cover, and chill for an hour.
Roll out and make cookies to your hearts content. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes.
Frosting: I made the butter cream frosting on the back of a Hershey’s cocoa container, melted it enough so that I could drizzle it on the cookies, and sprinkled crushed candy cane on the chocolate.
Side note: I added peppermint flavoring in the cookies.
Let us not forget, as we go into this Christmas season, to crave the sweet words of the Bible as much as we crave the sweet treats we make with our kiddos.
Until next week,

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving,
Daily Truth: “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.”
2 Corinthians 9:11
That first Thanksgiving was filled with great joy. The Pilgrims had suffered adverse conditions on both water and land. The Native Americans had helped the Pilgrims in numerable ways. A celebration was in order. A celebration which lasted three days shows their great thankfulness and the great abundance of food that was produced.
Two books that not only share facts but highlight God’s working in both the Pilgrims and Native Americans lives are:
Thanksgiving: A Time to Remember by Barbara Rainey
Squanto: And the Miracle of Thanksgiving by Eric Metaxes
Listed are just a few of the miracles from these two books so you can see the hand of God in this celebration we call Thanksgiving.
- Due to repairs needed on the ship, Speedwell, the passenger list was cut in half. “William Bradford commented, ‘And thus like Gideon’s army, this small number is divided, as if the Lord by this work of his providence thought these few were too many for the great work we had to do.”‘
- One of the storms on the the sea raged for days. “Without warning one of the huge crossbeams supporting the main deck suddenly cracked due to the constant stress of the high winds. Now the sailors were as worried as the passengers. But as always the Pilgrims took their concerns and fears to God, asking Him to deliver them and provide a way of escape. Their spiritual leader, William Brewster, remembered the large iron jack screw the Pilgrims had brought for lifting heavy beams when they would begin their building construction…The sailors used this to crank up the beam to its original position. The Pilgrims gave God the praise.”
- ” One man, a servant of John Carver named John Howland, became frantic after being cooped up so long during the storm. Though the worst of the storm was over, the main deck was still no place for passengers…He disobeyed the captain’s orders and went up on deck…..Suddenly the ship heeled and John fell overboard…A rope was trailing over the side of the ship, and by God’s amazing grace it was there when John reached out.”
- Many years before the Pilgrims landed in the New World a group of white men landed there. A young boy named Squanto, a part of the tribe called the Patuxets, lived along the coast of what today is called Massachusetts. Squanto was taken, along with many of his friends, by these men back to Spain to be sold into slavery. Squanto watched as his friends were sold and never to be seen again. “But God had another plan for Squanto. On the dock that morning stood a group men who were different from the others. These were called monks, and they served God. When it was Squanto’s time to be sold, one of the monks held up a small bag of heavy coins” and purchased him. They were kind and taught him about God.
- “They knew he missed his family so the tried to help him find a way to go back home to America. Finally, they came upon a good plan. But first, Squanto would have to travel all the way to England. That is where trading ships were that sometimes sailed to America….so Squanto traveled to England…the monks had sent him to the home of a London merchant named John Slanie.”
- It was ten years from Squanto’s capture before he finally was able to go home. By this time he had learned the English language.
Though it took several years for Squanto to get back to America he had learned about God and the English language. When the Pilgrims arrived in America the Native Americans greeted them. Since Squanto knew English he helped them in many ways.
God’s providence is seen throughout history. Not only in history that we read from a book but in the history of each person.
As you celebrate and count your blessings remember those who came before you and those who will come after you. Each person has struggles, hardships, joys and blessings. When God is sought in every situation God always shows Himself faithful. Our timing is not God’s timing so waiting is part of the process. We need to pray and allow God to work and show Himself faithful to us and our families.
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
