Stephanie's Corner - November Edition

Hello and happy day to you, friends!
Just one more day to enjoy in this beautiful month of November. . .
can you believe we have arrived to December?
My oh my, where has the year gone?

Thank you to all who entered the 
Hinds' Feet on High Places book giveaway.
As promised, the winner will be announced today
and I will do so at the end of the post.

Remember a few months back when I did a post
about things tickling my fancy?
Well, this post is going to be something like that.
In fact, I've decided to do a post like this
once a month or possibly every other month
about things I'm enjoying and about what's going on in my life.
So basically it's a post about fun randomness
{{smiles}}


Let's start with this delightful outfit that I bought from Zulily.
For years I've seen Zulily advertised and occasionally I would look at their things.
Well, one day I decided to give them a shot
when I found this charming jersey knit dress and scarf.




Now if you have bought from this website 
than you know sometimes it can take 3-4 weeks for your order to arrive.
I was aware of this when I ordered and in all honesty it didn't bother me.
But then I started reading reviews {after I placed my order}
and many people were saying the garments were not as described 
and often they ran small.
Well. . .
I started to worry about my order thinking the dress and scarf were going to be a flop.
I was pleasantly surprised, my friends,
and happy to say that both items were perfect.
The measurements were spot on
and the quality of both items were great.
Now I know not every order happens that way,
but after one purchase from Zulily 
I am looking forward to shopping there again in the future.




I have been busy practicing the piano for the holidays.
I found this version of Carol of the Bells on YouTube
and I have been hooked on David Hicken's music ever since.




So I decided to learn The Bell Carol for Christmas
along with a few other pieces written by David.
This song is one of my favorites and I never tire of hearing it.
You really must listen to it, my friends,
it's a beautiful version.




I shared with you on my tea cup and mug reveal post
that I gave Lauren a necklace with a special verse on it.
When I saw it in person {before I sent it to her}
I fell in love with it and decided to head back to the Etsy shop where I found it
and purchase one with my favorite hymn.
The Etsy shop is North Star Pendants.




I always purchase a yearly Christmas ornament for our tree.
One for my son and one for my husband and me.
This year I found one at Celestina's Etsy shop.
I fell in love with the sweet snowman family.




And speaking of Etsy,
some of my lovely blog friends have opened or reopened their shops.
If you have some free time and feel like shopping you should stop by.







My sister's birthday was this month so I made her a tote bag filled with all kinds of goodies:
an apron, zippered pouch, tea wallet, fabric basket, 
fabric coasters, mug rug, and a bookmark.




She is a big Star Trek fan so I purchased this fabric 
especially for her 




Let's see. . .
our cat family has grown.
As you know, we took in a cat that had three kittens 
just a few months after bringing her into our home.
Well, before we could get mama cat fixed she had two more kittens.
Yes, I was quite shocked!
I was told cat's could have kittens soon after their first litter,
but I didn't realize it could happen THAT FAST!

And dear friends,
I know there are some people out there that may want to "reprimand" me
for not fixing the mama sooner, but please don't.
What is done is done.
These kittens, all five of them, are being well taken care of
and they are very much loved by us.
I consider each one to be a precious gift.
Now back to the story about the two latest kittens. . .

My husband, son, and I came home from Sunday lunch with my in-laws
to find a sweet newborn kitten in the living room.
That night mama had another kitten and I must tell you
that mama didn't want anything to do with him.
She had him in the laundry room and left him on the floor in his sack.
She walked away while I rushed in to pull the sack off
so that he could breath.
I wrapped him up in a small hand towel 
and from that moment on he became my Little Burrito.
For the first month I had to watch the kittens like newborn babies.
I got up every 2-3 hours during the night to make sure they had milk
and that they went potty.
Mama had absolutely no interest in them so I had to take over for her.
Thankfully, I could pet mama and calm her into laying there to feed the babies.
It was a long and tiring couple of months,
but oh, what it ever worth it!

Meet Buttercup and Little Burrito when they were first born. . .




And here they are now. . .
happy and healthy.




Buttercup is the orange, white, and black one. . .




while Little Burrito is the black and white striped one.





You will notice Burrito looks just like Stripester
{the cat from the first litter}.
They take after mama.





Stripester has been like a second mom to the kittens.
You will find her cleaning them
and snuggling up with them during nap time.






So our family of cats has grown from 4 to 6.






There is never a dull moment in our household. . .
well, maybe only when they are sleeping.
{{smiles}}
I had to put my china tea cups behind glass
just to be safe.




And that's it for now, my friends.
Just a few things I'm enjoying from recent purchases
and a little bit of what's going on in my life. . .
essentially it's cats, cats, and more cats - HA!

Oh yes, now I will announce the winner
of the Hinds' Feet on High Places book.
The blessed and lovely winner is. . .

SIMPLY LINDA

Before I send this book off I wanted to share something I read on my friend's blog.
And let me just clarify. . .
I read this book when I was a teen and when I received this copy to review
I read several chapters, but also skimmed over a few
simply because I thought I knew the story.
Sarah, from Lilacs and Springtime, reviewed this book
and she shared something that convicted me and I felt the need to share it with you
since you read my reviews.

She said,
"A little over half-way through this book 
I came across a conversation between the Shepard 
and Much-Afraid that made me uneasy. 
Much-Afraid declares that she would love the Shepard 
even if he chose to deceive her and he contemplates this possibility. 
Since the Shepard is meant to represent Jesus this truly troubled me. 
From reading God's Word 
I know that Jesus is the way, the Truth and the light (John 14:6). 
In Him there is no shadow of turning (James 1:17). 
It is absolutely impossible for God to deceive!"

I greatly appreciated Sarah's honesty
and I am sorry that I missed this critical information.

Have a wonderful and maybe even slightly restful day.
Duke has the right idea. . .




Please know that I am simply sharing what is "tickling my fancy at the moment"
and I am not being paid for sharing these particular items
nor are the links affiliate links.

So Blessed

Happy Monday, sweet friends!
This post is to simply say. . .
"Thank you."





Many of you have touched my life in more ways than one
and I can't thank the Lord enough for you and your friendship.
When I started this blogging journey I had no idea where it would take me
and I certainly didn't expect to meet so many amazing and talented women.
The Lord has greatly blessed me through you, gracious friends,
and I consider each one of you a gift from the Lord.
You support me, you bless me with your words of encouragement, 
and you pray for me when it's most needed.

My heart is truly full of 
gratitude, 
appreciation, 
and love for YOU!

And speaking of support,
when I opened my Etsy shop you were there, dear friends,
supporting me along the way.
Over the weekend I reached 1,000 sales and while it's just a number
I can't help but feel excited! {{smiles}}
As many of you know, my love for crafting stems from my precious Grandma Betty
and in all honesty, I never thought I would be able to share that love with others,
but through my blog and Etsy shop I have been able to.
It's all thanks to the good Lord and to you.
Today is also "Cyber Monday" and in honor of these two things
I am offering 30% off your order
{no minimum required}
along with free shipping to all USA residents.
The items have already been marked down
so all you have to do is fill up your basket and save away.
This offer is good today and tomorrow,
November 27 & 28, 2017.




There are some people in life
that make you laugh a little louder,
smile a little bigger,
and just live a little bit better.


Thank  you, friends, followers, and readers. . .
thank you for everything.

May you have a beautiful day!
Love and hugs!

Hinds' Feet On High Places - Book Review & Giveaway

The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, 
Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: 
therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
- Jeremiah 31:3 -




Journey with Much-Afraid to new heights of love, joy, and victory!
For the first time, this beloved Christian allegory 
is a mixed-media special edition complete 
with charming watercolor paintings, antique tinted photography, 
meditative hand-lettered Scripture, journaling and doodling space, and designs to color. 
As you read and connect with the story of Much-Afraid and her trials, 
the pages of this book become a canvas on which to chronicle 
your own story, struggles, and personal triumphs.

Hinds’ Feet on High Places
with more than 2,000,000 copies sold, 
is a story of endurance, persistence, and reliance on God. 
This book has inspired millions of people to become sure-footed in their faith 
even when facing the rockiest of life’s terrain. 
The story of Much-Afraid is based on Psalm 18:33: 
“He makes me as surefooted as a deer, 
enabling me to stand on mountain heights.”

The complete Hinds’ Feet story is accented by 80 full-color paintings, 
photography, and hand-lettered Scripture.




My dear friends,
I was blessed to receive this copy of Hinds' Feet on High Places
from Tyndale Publishers.
Because it was such a joy to read through
I want to bless someone else with it.
So I am having a little giveaway 
for this beautifully worded and illustrated book.
Keep reading to find out how you can enter your name into the drawing.




The LORD God is my strength, 
and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, 
and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. 
To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.
- Habakkuk 3:19 -

There are days when we, believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, face 
difficulties. . .
sorrows. . .
pain. . .
trials. . .
persecution. . .
but it's how we react to these things 
that makes us either stronger in our walk with Him,
or causes us to stumble and fall away.
While reading this book I was reminded time and time again
that God is INDEED MY STRENGTH
just as Habakkuk says.
The journey of Much-Afraid takes the reader on an incredible journey.
A journey of ups and downs,
highs and lows,
happy moments and sad days.
This is what life is made up of
and life is a journey, is it not, my friends?

"Let us go down lower still,'
the water seems to be singing so gladly,
because it is hurrying to go down to the lowest place,
and yet you are calling me to the Highest Place.
What does it mean?"
"The High Places," answered the Shepherd,
"are the starting places for the journey down to the lowest place in the world.
When you have hinds' feet and can go 
"leaping on the mountains and skipping on the hills,'
you will be able, as I am,
to run down from the heights in gladdest self-giving
and then go up to the mountains again.
You will be able to mount to the High Places swifter than eagles,
for it is only up on the High Places of Love
that anyone can receive the power to pour themselves down
in an utter abandonment of self-giving."
{ Hinds' Feet on High Places - pg. 23 }

Hinds' Feet on High Places
is a beautiful love story that reminds us
of the love the Lord has so freely bestowed upon us.

Suddenly she understood.
She was beholding a wondrous and glorious truth;
"a great multitude whom no man could number:
brought like herself by the King to the Kingdom of Love
and to the High Places so that they could pour our their lives in gladdest abandonment,
leaping down with him to the sorrowful, desolate places below,
to share with others the life which they had received.
She herself was only one drop among the glad,
exultant throng of Self-givers,
the followers of the King of Love,
united with him and with one another,
each one equally blessed and beloved as herself.
"For he loves each one of us,"
she said to herself,
"as though there were only one to love."
{ Hinds' Feet on High Places - Pg. 127 }

Come, Thou Fount Of Every Blessing

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise Him, all creatures here below;
praise Him above, ye heav'nly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Amen.
- Thomas Ken -




Come, thou Fount of every blessing, 
tune my heart to sing thy grace; 
streams of mercy, never ceasing, 
call for songs of loudest praise. 
Teach me some melodious sonnet, 
sung by flaming tongues above. 
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it, 
mount of thy redeeming love. 

Here I raise mine Ebenezer; 
hither by thy help I'm come; 
and I hope, by thy good pleasure, 
safely to arrive at home. 
Jesus sought me when a stranger, 
wandering from the fold of God; 
he, to rescue me from danger, 
interposed his precious blood. 

O to grace how great a debtor 
daily I'm constrained to be! 
Let thy goodness, like a fetter, 
bind my wandering heart to thee. 
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, 
prone to leave the God I love; 
here's my heart, O take and seal it, 
seal it for thy courts above.
- Robert Robinson -




LORD, you are my God; 
I will exalt you and praise your name, 
for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, 
things planned long ago.
- Isaiah 25:1 -


During his early years, Robert Robinson, 
the author of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing,
lived in London, where he mixed with a notorious gang of hoodlums
and led a life of debauchery.
At the age of seventeen he attended a meeting 
where the noted evangelist George Whitefield was preaching.
Robinson went for the purpose of "scoffing at those poor, deluded Methodists"
and ended up professing faith in Christ as his Savior.
Soon he felt called to preach the gospel
and subsequently became the pastor of a rather large Baptist church 
in Cambridge, England.
- Kenneth W. Osbeck - Amazing Grace -


Blessed be the Lord, 
who daily loadeth us with benefits,
 even the God of our salvation. 
Selah.
- Psalm 68:19 -




Our blessings are great and many, my friends.
Let us praise the Lord today and every day 
for His amazing presence in our lives.

May you and yours have a beautiful Thanksgiving week.
I am thankful for you!
Love and hugs!

Love Held Captive - Book Review

After the War Between the States, 
a Confederate officer longs to heal the heart of a beautiful woman—
but first he’ll have to right the wrongs that were done to her.
Major Ethan Kelly has never been able to absolve himself of the guilt he feels 
for raiding a woman’s home shortly before he was taken prisoner during the Civil War. 
He is struggling to get through each day 
until he once again crosses paths with Lizbeth Barclay—
the very woman he is trying to forget.

Life after the war is not much different 
for former Captain Devin Monroe until he meets Julianne VanFleet. 
He knows she is the woman he’s been waiting for, 
but he struggles to come to terms with the sacrifices she made to survive the war.

When Ethan and Devin discover that their former colonel, 
Adam Bushnell, is responsible for both Lizbeth’s and Julianne’s pain, 
they call on their former fellow soldiers to hunt him down. 
As the men band together to earn the trust of the women they love, 
Lizbeth and Julianne seek the justice they deserve in a country longing to heal.




My Thoughts
Well, my friends, I have to be honest with you. . .
Love Held Captive has unfortunately not held my attention captive.
I have had this book sitting by my beside for a couple of months
and every time I pick it up to read it's all I can do to make it through a few pages.
I read the first two books in this series and they were good,
but this one was just not my cup of tea.

I felt some of the characters and their motives were unsavory,
or to put it another way,
the foundation of the story revolved around unnecessary sordid details.
It also seemed like there was a lot of information crammed into the book.
The storyline follows Major Ethan and Captain Devin
and it bounced back and forth between the two way too much.
I did not enjoy following the characters
as I felt like I had to continually keep track of every little detail 
in order to keep up with the story.

This review is based on me and my personal preferences.
There are many positive reviews for this book on the CBD website
and while I did not care for it you might enjoy it.
We are not all the same and our reading tastes vary.

You can find my reviews for the first two books by clicking on the links below:



I have read several books by Shelley Shephard Gray that have been wonderful
so it makes me sad to write this kind of review for one of her books.

 ** I was given a complimentary copy of this book 
from BookLook Bloggers for an honest review. 
All thoughts are my own and no other compensation was received. **

a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers prestigious Carol Award,

bakes too much, and can often be found walking her dachshunds on her town's bike trail.

Brown Butter Bars

Count the memories. . .
not the calories.




The holidays are upon us, my friends,
and that means the joy of baking. . .
hours upon hours of baking!
{{smiles}}
I have shared in the past that I have a sweet tooth
and oh, how I love my sugary treats!
I try not to make desserts too often,
but around the holidays I thoroughly enjoy being in the kitchen.




My son kicked off the holiday season with these amazing brown butter bars.
He was going through my cookbooks and found this tasty recipe.
So one afternoon he and I whipped up these oh-so-good treats
and after just one bite I knew I had to share the recipe with you.
Brown sugar, butter, milk chocolate, and pecans. . .
four ingredients that will have your guests asking for more.




The recipe is from the cookbook
Cookies in the Clouds - High Altitude Baking
by Vera Dawson

Ingredients:

1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
8 tablespoons {1 stick} unsalted butter
pinch of salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
6 ounces milk chocolate
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with nonstick aluminum foil
or with regular foil and grease well.
Extend the foil several inches over two sides of the pan
to use as handles when removing the baked bars.

Put the brown sugar in a large bowl
and stir briefly to lighten and separate.
Set aside.

Cut up the butter and place in a small saucepan
over low heat.
Swirl the pan or stir occasionally;
watch carefully as it melts.
It will sizzle, the solids and fats with separate,
and it will turn a light golden color
and have a nutty, toasty smell.
It takes about 4 to 6 minutes to go through these stages.
When the butter has lightly browned
{don't burn it},
remove it from the stove and pour it over the brown sugar.
Add the pinch of salt and stir until combined.

Combine the egg and vanilla in a small bowl
and add it to the butter-sugar combination,
beat until smooth.
Add the flour and gently stir just until it disappears.
Don't over mix!
Pour the batter into the prepared pan
and smooth the top.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, 
or until the top is set and shiny.
When a tester is inserted into the middle is should come out clean.
If the batter develops shoulders
{sides puff up and are higher than the middle},
open the oven door and gently press them down with the back of a spoon or spatula.
Take care that you don't over bake these;
you want them chewy, not dry.

Remove the pan from the oven;
sprinkle with milk chocolate pieces
{I used chocolate chips}.
Place the pan back in the oven for a minute or two
to soften the chocolate.
Remove the pan and spread the chocolate all over the top of the bars.
Sprinkle the pecans evenly over the warm chocolate.
Let the pan cool for about 15 minutes on a rack.
Using the foil handles,
remove the slab from the pan and place it on the cooling rack.
Cut into bars once it has completely cooled.

The bars, stored airtight, will keep for about three days
at cool room temperature.
They also freeze well.




Bless the food before us,
the family beside us,
the love between us.




It's always a pleasure to have you visit

As for the next exchange. . .
it may or may not be in the spring.
As many of you know
I was intending on hosting this event only once a year,
but with so many sweet ladies enjoying the exchange
I may have to keep hosting it twice a year,
once in the spring and once in the fall.
We shall just have to see what happens when spring arrives.

Have a blessed day, dear friends!
Love and hugs to you!
