Hilachas is the Spanish word for those little loose threads that fall all over the floor and sewing area as you finish sewing and snip the tail end of the thread off the sewn area. So does this blog entail the odds and ends of topics of interest, leaving more loose threads to ponder...
And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. - Colossians 3:17, NLT
Doing “all in the name of the Lord Jesus” means bringing honor to Christ in every aspect and activity of daily living. As a Christian, you represent Christ at all times—wherever you go and whatever you say. What impression do people have of Christ when they see or talk with you? What changes would you make in your life in order to honor Christ?
I have received a Candle Mat from my partner in the "Christmas Candle Mat 2011."Well, not only did I receive the Candle Mat, but a whole bunch of other goodies from Laura. Just look at this:
There are ornaments: 2 cute candy canes, a funny little snowman, and another snowman painted and signed by Laura herself, 5 little hand-sewn snowballs and one larger snowball.
There are two candles, one with a hand-sewn cover that wraps around it and another little snowball-looking one.
And then there is the gorgeous candlemat, also hand-sewn with colorful mittens all around it. Oh, and a pendant/pin made of glass pieces, rather funky but so cute. I’m wearing it today .
Thank you, Laura. I am going to enjoy it all so much.
