A Thousand Little Things

There is certainly a thousand little things to be thankful for. Here at night it is dark, you know the kind of dark that even when your eyes are open it is still pitch black. There are no street lamps. Only tranquility, peace and rest. This morning I woke to views of farm land, horses with their winter coats shining in the sun and gorgeous views. We have hills and then beautiful mountains jutting out behind the hills. The air still and crisp to let you know winter is on its way soon. The mountains are extraordinarily beautiful, they are jagged and rough. These mountains aren’t looming or gloomy. In this tiny little cottage when you look through any window you get a picture perfect view. When I woke there was a light fog that was slowly rolling away while the sun rise was rolling in for another glorious God given day. God is good and if we are willing to look and listen we can here Him tell us He loves us! And here in this little cottage, you know He loves you. You can see His love with every God created view. I hope you enjoy this Point of Grace song and feel the love.

I made some Easter eggs today out of string, and turned some of them into a garland.

Make a stiffener mixture. I used 1 cup of liquid starch mixed with a half cup of flour, and blended it in a blender. You could double or triple this recipe if you’d like. I did.

Next I got some string, I used embroidery floss. You could also use pearl cotton thread or crochet thread.

Apparently the embroidery floss section of the store is a dangerous place, I grabbed a bunch and couldn’t stop myself.

Then you stick your string in a bowl of starch goo, but don’t just plop it in there like I first did. Your string WILL get into a knot… and it’s not fun to try and un-snarl gooey string. So don’t do it. Instead coil your string into the mixture and gently press it into the goo, I didn’t get one knot doing it this way.

For a little egg, blow up a water balloon and wrap the gooey string around the balloon. Make sure you wipe off the excess goo and let it fall back into the bowl, it doesn’t need to be drippy.
One skein of embroidery floss was just enough for one water balloon sized egg.

It’ll take several hours for it to dry. Once it dries, pop the balloon. You might have crusty stuff in-between the string, I scraped that out with a straight pin.

I think it’s important to mention that you need to fill the water balloons up with air and not water. Your eggs will be ruined if you pop a water balloon filled with water.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

how long have i been in this storm
so overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless form
waters getting harder to tread
with these waves crashing over my head

if i could just see you
everything would be alright
if i had to see you
this darkness would turn into light

and i will walk on water
and you will catch me if i fall
and i will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
and everything will be alright

i know u didn’t bring me out here to drown
so why am i ten feet under and upside down
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause i’m so used to living underneath the surface

if i could just see you
everything would be alright
if i could see you
this darkness would turn into light

and i will walk on water
and you will catch me if i fall
and i will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright

and i will walk on water
and you will catch me if i fall
and i will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
and now everything is alright
everythings alright
