Sunday Verses

God's Word, inspiring verse, hardware, Bible, God's provision, http://bec4-beyondthepicketfence.blogspot.com/2016/04/sunday-verses_30.html
Happy Sunday! Hardware stores are a favorite place of mine--so many wonderful bits and pieces, everything I might need to complete a project. I find some weeks I have to make several trips to the hardware store to find what I need to finish a job. Thankfully, we have been given all the tools we need to do the things that God wants us to do. He gives us the patience, the wisdom, the words, the strength to complete the jobs He wants us to do, even when we don't feel like it. No matter what God is asking you to do or walk through, trust that He has provided more than enough to complete the job.

Easy Ladder Shelf

For every show I do, there is AT LEAST one project that never gets finished and doesn't make it.  This easy ladder shelf was the lonely, left-behind project from last show.

Level Shelf

I don't collect many things and when I do, I keep the collection small because I just don't want an overwhelming amount stuff.

While unpacking (yes, still 8 months later) some boxes last week I discovered my wind-up alarm clock collection.

I haven't seen this collection in awhile because I had put it away about a year or so before we sold our house.  I decided it was time to display it again.

Fusion Blues Paint Giveaway

Blue is my favorite color, all shades of it, so when asked to join other bloggers in showing off the Fusion Mineral Paint Blue colors (they have 8 to choose from), I jumped right in.

Sunday Verses

inspiring verse, running, Bible verse, God's Word, perseverance, http://bec4-beyondthepicketfence.blogspot.com/2016/04/sunday-verses_24.html
Happy Sunday! Our lives are a race, sometimes a slow crawl and other times a sprint. Our races are each different, with different obstacles and pit stops, and they are often difficult and so challenging we want to give up. We need to know that we have people surrounding us, not only those in heaven, but here on earth, cheering us on and supporting us as we run and we need to look to these people and let them support us when we we get tripped up by the hard things in life--our failings and shortcomings, our unbelief. When the race is tough we need to throw off the things (sins) slowing us down, we MUST let others help us and encourage us, and we need to keep our eyes on Jesus, who is with us from the very start to the finish. Keep running my friends, even when it gets hard, until He says we have crossed the finish line.

Foodie Friday: Gluten Free Cookie Butter Pretzel Bites

I think when we went gluten free (because my husband has Celiacs), finding treats and yummy munchies was the biggest challenge.

I was a baker--cookies, bars, bread and it took a while for me to come up with yummy alternatives. This concoction that I whipped up one day has become a family favorite.

Beachy Patio Table

Do you ever buy something at a garage sale and then wonder why?

That is how it was with this patio set I picked up a couple years ago.  I didn't look it over well enough and it had some issues I didn't see.  It has a couple leaves that pop up that the previous owner said worked great, but they didn't and I was stupid and didn't test them.  The table was pretty wobbly too.  

But, it was mine, so I decided to make it work.

Outdoor Dreamin"

As the weather took a turn for the worse this week (white stuff was spotted, but didn't stick around), I have been planning and dreaming about the projects I want to get done outside.

When we bought our old schoolhouse last summer, we traded a VERY SMALL yard for 1.2 acres.
