The Homestead Kitchen
As a homemaker I spend most of my time in the kitchen. Here I have surrounded my self with reminders of God. They are uplifting & feed my soul from day to day.
The beautiful nativity scene is out year round on top of the pie safe. So many years ago God sent his only Son to be born a babe in a stable. Jesus died on the cross for all of us. The price for all our sins was his death. All our sins were covered by his blood.
This one word has so much meaning. Something we all need in our lives. Peace.
I stitched the Lords Prayer on Muslin & framed it a few years ago.
This little sign was given to me by my MIL years ago. It belonged to her mother. I never had the chance to meet this woman but have heard over years how wonderful she was. I missed knowing a Godly woman who I know I would have really liked.
On top of the frig is this little block of wood that has the name of our Savior. The letters spell love to me. Jesus.
I stitched this saying on muslin & framed it to put in my candle shelf. It says so much to me.
The simple little wood box I found at the good will & filled with prayer requests. The kitchen seemed like the best place to keep it because I would see it every day & most all day long. It would help me to keep others in prayer as I cleaned & cooked.
These pies are just a few of the many things prepared in the kitchen as I take the time to pray for others & myself.
Some times life gets so busy & way to much for me to handle but as I look around the kitchen I am reminded I am not alone & always have God to care for me. It is up lifting for me & encouraging to have all these small & simple reminders.
At this time I have a prayer request that I would like you to join with me to lift up a young woman who's mother passed away on Monday. This young woman was very close to her mother & she is a mother of one toddler. It has been very hard for her planning the funeral on top of loosing her mother so suddenly & having to explain to her own child that his grandma has went to live with Jesus in heaven. My heart goes out to her family & her mothers family. I hate to see her in such pain. May God bless you for your caring prayers.
Blessings Til Next Time.
