For More Information
Empowering, inspirational, encouraging are just a few words to describe this movie.  The message is beautiful loved learning about the 7 keys.  A very well done movie.  I enjoyed the movie.  Only one thing I'd change is about 1 hour and 24 min. into the movie there is a curse word.  That just grates on me to watch a Christian movie and they curse.  It just doesn't add to the dialogue.  I feel there is no need to curse to get our point across.  "Why Me?"  would have been sufficient to get the point across. Other than that one spot the movie was very powerful.  

Giveaway

Robin is giving away 3 DVDs and 3 downloads!

Makes getting clean more fun;
Soon we’re laughing oh so hard,
We don’t even know who won!

And let them hold me tight,
Knowing that you’ll keep me safe
And loved all through the night.

But not all in one night.   Last night was April's Friday Night Sew-In.  I continued my project from last month. Sew I'll post pictures since I didn't get them all posted last month.  Last month I found the material to make my sister a cover for her Kitchen-Aid Mixer.


I worked on it off and on got the piece for the body and ends cut out and quilted.  Sorry no pictures of that step.  I forgot to take picture of the quilting part.  Last night I worked on sewing it together and started the binding.  It is reversible.

Side One:.....

Side Two:.....
this side is for her daughters.  They love cupcakes and baking.

Sir Princess Petra has already attained her knighthood in the Kingdom of Pen Pieyu and her non-princess-like talent certificate from Talent School, neither of which pleases her father and mother, the king and queen. The king writes up more silly rules in the royal rule book to deter Sir Princess Petra from her knightly ways and useless talent, and turn her into a real princess once and for all. Will the king finally succeed with this newly written, ridiculous mission for Petra?
Diane Mae Robinson is the recipient of six international writing awards and one prestigous provincial award for her fantasy adventure children’s chapter book series, The Pen Pieyu Adventures. The author has created a world full of delightful, zany characters, while embracing the traditional values of kindness, understanding, and acceptance of others to create a story with the humorous essence of Shrek.

The Daffodils Still Grow by Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell

http://abis-scrapsoflife.blogspot.com/2016/02/the-daffodils-still-grow-by-sherri.html

This book is a beautiful book with a powerful message just for the child that has lost their mother.  It is a book of encouragement that their feelings of grief are normal.  They can see that others have the same feeling about losing their mother.  It might help them to open up to grief and talk with others about it.  The water color illustrations help set the mood of the book.  It is short and too the point, but has depth and feeling as well.

About the Author

The Daffodils Still Grow was inspired by diary entries of the author/illustrator, Sherri Elizabeth Tidwell, after the death of her mother when she was 14. “My mother committed suicide when I was 14, and after nearly a year of crying and hurting, I was surprised -- almost shocked -- to see the daffodils she planted right before her death still bloom again. It was a big wake-up call to me that, even though she was gone, I could still carry on without her FOR her. Somehow, our loved ones still find a way of communicating with us when we need it the most." Sherri Elizabeth now attends Seton Hill University’s MFA program in Writing Popular Fiction. She has a BA in both communications and studio arts from Austin Peay State University. She hopes that every parent will know how irreplaceable and loved they are to their children and that every child who has lost a parent will know they are not alone. Remember, the daffodils still grow!
