Love in a Box – November 2017

The month’s just seem to fly by.  As I just finish up one month, I begin to think about what next month’s “Love in a Box” theme will be.  And of course, for November it would be Thanksgiving.  I did find some wonderful things on line to duplicate and put into our grandson’s package.  I printed out this thanksgiving Bingo from here.

Sean Michael always likes to enjoy something a bit sweet and as always a themed
tic-tac box made with my Silhouette.  We also tucked in a couple of boxes of cracker jacks, some snack and cookie packs for his school lunches.  He also likes Mac & Cheese, so I found some boxes of fun-shaped pasta mixes and included those.

I put together his RAK Calendar with some new
appropriate buttons for November. IMG_1147

A fill-in A-Z Thankful Chart

A Thanksgiving Card made with my Silhouette Cameo with some extra spending cash and a note letting him know how very special he is to us!

And of the utmost importance his “CTG Devotional” for November.

For Mom:

A cup reminding her that she is love Beyond Measure by God and us, and a Thanksgiving Card (made with Stampin up Lighthearted leaves stamps & dies and Papertrey Ink’s Signature Greetings II) letting her know that we are so thankful for her!   Also tucked in a few assorted protein bars for those
“rush out the door” mornings and an extra bit of cash for morning coffee out.

I love the “Thanksgiving” holiday.  How wonderful it is to have a special time of year to count our blessings and to remind others of the value and impact that they have in our lives.

Feeling so thankful and blessed,
Gen's-Signature

His Word for My Week – Got Problems?

Got Problems.jpg
I read the following question on Facebook a bit ago and it got me to wondering
what my response might be.

Is is appropriate to publicize our problems and difficulties on Facebook? 
Should this be the first place to go to air grievances against others…the place to go to lay our burdens down?  I think perhaps NOT!

Well, then, how do we face our problems; we certainly all have them.  We do have a few choices:

1)  Go into overdrive to search for answers.

2)  Curl up in defeat or withdraw.

3)  Avoid the problem.

OR

4)  Turn to God and seek His guidance.

Don’t ask, “What am I going to do?”  which focuses on our abilities, our resources, our understanding.  We resort to manipulation and maneuvering to fix our problems.  This rarely works.

Do ask, “What are You (God) going to do?”  which shifts to focus on the omniscience (all-knowing) and omnipotence (all-powerful) of our Almighty God.  He can blow the sides of any box out!

It’s our choice–His plan or our solution!  He has the power to carry out His plans, which–unlike our solutions–are perfect, always bringing Him glory.  God knows how to solve your problem, but He may choose to do something that is seemingly unreasonable.  But whenever we yield our flawed solutions and meager resources to Him and step out in obedience, He does great things in us and through us.  God is greater than any problem we have!   Nothing is too difficult for Him!

Philippians 4:6  “Be careful (anxious) for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know unto God.”

Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly before the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me and I will answer thee and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

How do we face our problems…

by looking into the Face of our Almighty God and Creator of the Universe…

whose eyes and ears are always listening.

  “Casting all your cares upon Him because He cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:7

Have a Blessed Week,
