How to Make a Book Prettier, A Lovely Candle, and a Lunch Recipe

 10.11.11

Some of us are starting this week to pray through the Valley of Vision (13 weeks, 3x's a day -Would you join us?-), and I think that most of us own the paperback edition which to be true, and I will say this quietly, it is not very pretty. So one day, I decided I would make mine prettier. Of course, I ran over to my Mom's because she is definitely more talented than I am; and well, I convinced her to make a new cover for my books the easiest way possible (I we also made one for one of my favorite books, Practical Religion by R.C. Ryle, because of the same reasons: a not so pretty cover, go see what I am talking about here.)


What is my secret to have a pretty cover? No needles and thread, but glue!



The result is this:

Practical Religion by Ryle








Now you know, if you don't want to spend your money on the leather edition, get the paperback and make it special. (Isn't this another great idea for Christmas or birthday gifts?)

This week I have made two things that I found over at Pinterest, a lovely candle and a yummy recipe.

First the candle. I have seen it on Pinterest but was unsure how it worked, but after Katie Lloyd reviewed it I decided we needed to make it; and yes it works pretty well, and certainly looks very pretty. We used grapefruit instead of clementines, just because that is what I had at hand.




The "twig" is part of the fruit itself and the fuel is olive oil. (We made a second one and tried to use canola oil instead, but it never burned)





And lastly, a yummy lunch recipe. A recipe I needed to share because some of my friends are running out of ideas and serve their family breakfast for lunch, while others feed their family on chocolate and "throw them a few organic carrots once in a while to make themselves feel better"! :)  (Yes, you guessed, this is an "inside joke"!)

 The recipe comes also from PinterestRoasted Grapes with Thyme, Fresh Ricotta & Grilled Bread from Alexandra's Kitchen. The picture is hers, I did not even try to take one of mine, hers is just perfect.

I really recommend you to try this one; it is delicious, easy and looks perfect on your plate!









Enjoy the rest of your week, and rejoice in Him who gives us our breath every second.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
