Rustic Twig Wreath

Good morning, lovelies!
I know I have shared with you before that the closest Hobby Lobby
or Michaels is two hours away. . .sad, I know.
So it's not easy for me to go pick up craft supplies whenever I need them.
Often I have to wait or be creative and think of an alternative idea
which was the case with this twig wreath.


I was in the "mood" to make a wreath for my back door,
but didn't have any wreath supplies
so I took a walk in my yard and gathered a bunch of dead twigs.
I simply tied the corners together with some brown string
and voila! a twig wreath.


I used fake leaves that I had from last year
and hot glued them on along with a pine cone
and crab apples from my tree :)



I tied on some soft green burlap for the hanger.



Create a rustic and pretty wreath with items from your very own yard.


Love and hugs to you, friends!

Prayers Answered!

Hello, friends!
Last night I shared a prayer request on my blog
for Amy's son who was lost in the woods.
Praise the Lord he has been found!
Thank you for the prayers!
I know Amy and Roxy (the boy's grandmother) 
are VERY thankful for all of the prayers.

Roxy has been updating her blog with information
and you can visit her here:

You can also read more at my friend, Diana's blog
where she shared a newspaper article about the boy being found.

We serve an amazing God - He is our Shield and Protector.


When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder

  1. Behold, I show you a mystery;
  2. we shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed,
  3. in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump;
  4. for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
  5. and we shall be changed.
  6. 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52


  1. When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no more,
    And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair;
    When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore,
    And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.
  2. On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
    And the glory of His resurrection share;
    When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
    And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.
  3. Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
    Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
    Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,
    And the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.
    • Refrain:
      When the roll is called up yonder,
      When the roll is called up yonder,
      When the roll is called up yonder,
      When the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.
      - James M. Black -
    • There is a land of pure delight,
      where saints immortal reign;
      Eternal day excludes the night,
      and pleasures banish pain.
      - Isaac Watts -
    • Have a blessed Lord's Day, friends!

    • When I took these photos one evening I did not see the silhouette in the picture below
      until I uploaded the pictures onto the computer.
      Can you guess what the silhouette is?
