Eating Out

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

If you like to go out to dinner you must go here
She is sharing some information on how to get a $25.00 gift card for $3.00 I just did it and printed the coupon. It is always a treat for us to go out to dinner. Hurry the offer expires today. I think that for $3.00 it will be in our budget.
Have a great day,

Prayers For Grandchildren

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

I just finished reading this book called Grandma I Need Your Prayers, Blessing Your Grandchildren through the Power of Prayer by Quin Sherrer, and Ruthanne Garlock. In this book they quoted the verse in the Bible Ephesians 14 -19. I use this verse often when I pray for our grandchildren. They need our prayers daily to be able to survive in our world today. This is always so heavy on my heart and I pray for all 3 daily!

Ephesians 14 - 19

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Watering House Plants

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

I always make such a mess when I water my house plants ( all two of them). I have always used a glass until I discovered this trick. One day I saw a water bottle with a small amount of water in it so I just used it for my two house plants. It was a no mess no fuss experience. So now I have water in it at all times and I keep it under my sink. It makes it easy for me to just grab it and water my two house plants when ever I think about it. I'm sure if you have more than two house plants you may need a bigger water bottle than this one.

Have a fun day,

I have two polls on the right side of my blog, don't forget to vote I'm just kinda curious of your opinion.

This is so cute, look you can see the hummingbird that is a Mosaic on my table. Look in the water, I thought that was kinda cute since this post is about my hummingbird jar. I just noticed it when I uploaded the picture.

Today I went to fill our hummingbird feeders, you may remember the 4 little feeders that I put out last year. The birds love these little feeders, although I still just see 2 or 3 they seem to drink out of all 4 feeders. I found the cutest glass jar in my cupboard that had been empty for ever, so I finally found a purpose for it. It's perfect to put my sugar water in after I make it, then I put the extra in the refrigerator. Not only is is cute it's functional also, cute and functional you can't ask for much more than that! This jar has a spout on it so it makes it so easy to pour into the feeders.
Do you have something special that you use to pour sugar water into your feeders?
Our water heater broke today so we have no water until tomorrow.I'm glad we had some bottle water for our coffee in the morning. We are having someone come out in the morning to put the new one in, it's hard for my husband to do it by himself.
I posted my first item on eBay this week to sell. It was easier than I thought it would be, I'm just kind of testing it for now. My sister in law has some things she wants to sell so I thought I would do it for her. She's just going to give me a box at a time to sell. Once I start with her items I will share the link.

Revelation 3:16

Because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

The word lukewarm pretty much sums up my life, everything is just kinda lukewarm.

I assume that people know that I love the Lord but do I share his word? Am I HOT! The answer to this question is no, as much as I hate to admit it.

I keep telling myself that I just don't have the personality to approach people and teach God's word. Then I get to thinking, I can't imagine telling our Lord this face to face, how would it sound something like this, I'm sorry God I love you BUT! It's not going to happen, I will become HOT before I have to face our Lord. This will not come easy for me, and I will be out of my safety zone. With lots of prayers I feel that the Lord will lead the way for me.

Helping Other people

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

Today for Spiritual Sunday I wanted to share this short~short video. It may help you or someone you know a great deal. We can even take it upon ourselves to take it to a family in need, or share this good news with your church. This could help so many families.

Angel Food Ministries This is the link to their web page so you can find one close to where you live. I hope this can help someone in need. They also have food that is prepared for senors so all they need to do is heat a serve. The meals have been developed with the dietary needs of senior citizens in mind. The normal box of food will feed a family of four for a week.

Proverbs 22:9

Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.

Matthew 5:42

Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.

Please visit other Spiritual Sunday post here.

I guess this is heavy on my heart because last night I had a dream that a family had been sneaking in our home during the late night sleeping and eating.
That's so funny how we dream about things that are so heavy on our hearts.

God Bless,

Good Morning

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

This is going to be a different kind of post, it's not about anything around the house or what I bought yesterday or the day before, actually it's not about buying anything at all.

My heart hurts for so many people right now that I have had a hard time posting lately. My mother inlaw has to move after living in the same house for 45 years or so, and she is almost 80 she has been so blessed to have been able to live where she is for so long, we were just hoping that this day would not come. The owners need to sell the house that she has called home for so many years. This will not be an easy move by any means so please keep her in your prayers.
I just found out that a couple that we know are going to lose their home. They have lived their for 20 years, they took money out to start a business that was very lucrative, as times started to get bad people stopped paying them. There are so many reason why people are losing there homes, not just because of bad loans.

Everyday I feel so blessed to have a place that my husband and I can call home.
Thank-you for stopping by today and I hope that you feel blessed today as well.
I'm not taking a blog break again but I may be changing the contents of my blog for awhile. I hope that you still stop by as I have a passion for decorating and gardening, and that is the back bone to this blog, but for time being I will be posting about other things. I hope that you will still stop by and say hello, and I hope that you still enjoy my blog for other reason other than decorating.
God Bless,

What Kind of Christians Are We?

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

I love dish towels, I have pretty dish towels and I have not so pretty dish towels. I love the pretty towels, I just can't count on them to get the job done, they don't dry very well at all. So these towels are just for looks, they are the towels I use for display. I keep them on one side of the drawer in the kitchen. Then I have some on the other side of the drawer that are not so pretty. They are used and they are worn, but I always reach for them because they get the job done, I pass up the pretty ones to get to the used and worn ones because they are faithful!

What kind of Christians are we? Are we just for display? Do we just stand there with our pretty bibles in our hands?
Are we the kind Christians that people pass up because we don't get the job done? Or are we the kind of Christian that people reach for? We have are used and worn bibles in our hands ready and waiting because we are faithful! This is the kind of Christian I want to be, I don't want people to pass me up I want them to reach for me!

What kind of Christian do you want to be?

Romans 12:11
11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

Time Change

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

Here in CA. the time changes today, we will spring forward. I love the fact that there will be more daylight time.
I wanted to thank my husband for being such a good sport with the coffee video! We do silly things like this to each other, the only thing is he doesn't have a blog to tell the whole world what silly things I've done. Maybe this will inspire him to get his own blog.

Have a great day

To My Husband

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

My husband is the type of man that very seldom has to say the words where did I put this, or what did I do with such and such. His dresser drawers are perfect, he cleans as he cooks, well I could go on but I will spare you.

We always take turns making coffee and last night was his turn, we make it the night before and use the timer so it's ready when we wake up. Well this morning the coffee pot went on but there was no coffee, he forgot to put water in the pot.
HE~~HE~~ HE~~ I just love when he does silly little things like this.

So I thought that I would post this video for him.


This Is So Cute

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

Do you remember this beautiful give way from Under the Willow that I won?
Well look what I did with the beautiful hankie she sent me.

Yep, this is my granddaughter, she thought that she was all that with this pretty little hankie on her head.

I thought it made such a precious bandanna.

And so did she!

I know the day will come when she will say please I don't want to have that on, but until that day comes I'm going to have fun.
Have a great day,
