Chicken pops!

Emma has full blown chicken pox! All over her little body. They began appearing on Saturday morning and have multiplied. She is feeling fine but is a tad itchy.

Her small friend Heidi had them recently and called them Chicken pops! Love that.

Yesterday at Church we had 3, yes 3 Baptisms! The happy fellows are pictured below.

Last night I have been finishing off this quilt. I love the spotty binding, a bit like Emma and her spots!

Matthew 28: 19 - 20 NIV.

19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Hi everyone,

I have been working on these little lovelies for the last few days. Experimenting and perfecting! What do you think?

Quilted coasters. My hubby loves them! He thinks I should sell them. I don't know? I lack confidence but I think they are v cute!
Well what do you think?

Jesus' death.

A question for us all to ponder and look into today! Last night at our young women's Bible study the following question was asked;

"Did Jesus endure a spiritual death, or was it only a physical death?"

We were discussing the topic of Jesus death as 'Substitution'.

So what do you think? One of the main questions that cropped up was, where did Jesus go between death on the cross and resurrection? Some think Jesus was with God, others that he was in Hell.

One of the passages that was mentioned was found in 1 Peter 3; 18 - 22.

Please share any thoughts, Bible references, books on this theological question. It will certainly help me form a clearer understanding of this topic!

Too long!

Hi all! It's been too long since I have posted some photos of my little ones, although they aren't so little now!

This is a photo taken on my phone by Jacob at Church last Sunday. Emma had been ill that week with what we think was a mild form of chicken pox or a virus. This is why she is sporting some gorgeous pimples on her chin! (This was before they scabbed over, eugh!).

This is Jacob playing a Cbeebies online game called Alphablocks or Zingzillas I think? Emma loves to watch and he even lets her press the odd button! Excuse the bombsite of a desk and the computer lives in the cupboard under the stairs. That isn't my lounge!

It's been too long since I have blogged about our daily life so I hope, Lord willing, to do more of that! I have been working lots in the garden over the last month so I plan to share plenty of pics of that among other things!
