Directions for how to make The Empty Tomb and Cross centerpiece.
If you are visiting me today from Proverbs 31 Ministries devotion, welcome!
Jesus our Lord is risen! Because He died and rose on the third day;“He that believes in Him shall have everlasting life.” When we believe, we are sealed with the Holy Spirit who is the guarantee of our inheritance. This is cause for uncontainable excitement!
We are filled with all the fullness of God! Oh my goodness, this is glorious!
Let’s worship Him without reserve. Lets cleanse our homes of anything that doesn’t glorify Him. Lets give ourselves wholly to Him who bought us with His own blood. Lets love Him the way He loves us!
May your Easter be filled with all the fullness of God!

One of the greatest traditions you can start with your family is a Passover(Seder) meal. Instructions, recipes, and verses on how to do prepare for a Passover(Seder)Meal.
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” Easter beckon’s us to share Christ’s free gift of salvation to the lost. It beckon’s us to be overcome with His love for others. Who do you know that doesn’t know Christ as their personal savior? Ask the Lord how He would like to use you to bring them to Him. Should you call them, invite them for Easter lunch? Send an Easter card? Stop by with a basket and invite them to church? In the comment section, leave the name of the one you’re praying for. Your comment enters you to win a $40 gift certificate to be used at the Proverbs 31 bookstore and we’ll pray for your lost family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker.
Wedding preparations and festivities have commenced. Jennifer’s royal shower was this past weekend.
My friend Beverly Toves took all the photos!
Hannah brought the macaroons and made yummy organic goat cheese dip and vegetables
Laura congratulating Jennifer and Alex. Laura and Jennifer have been friends since they were two years old.
Throughout each day this past week while we busily prepared for the wedding and shower we would stop, thank the Lord for providing such a godly and amazing man and then ball our eyes out. It’s worth waiting for the man that GOD provides. Philippians 4:19 “And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
Last week our daughter and her husband had their fourth baby, Heidi Victoria! We’re still celebrating! The first one, Grace is with the Lord, just in case you’re wondering where she is in the photo’s. Each baby born is a huge gift from the Lord, for which we are ever so grateful.
It is such an honor to be a grand parent. I’ll never forget those days after Grace died, when other grandparents held their grandchildren and I ached for ours. When I hold ours now, oh my goodness- I cherish them. Every toe I kiss, every nose I wipe, every word they say is priceless. When you lose a life, it makes you more grateful for life. I want to cherish our grandchildren. I want to live life with them, teach them through our actions how to live and love like Jesus.
Before Heidi was born I made a list of things I could do with the grand children while Heather, their mom was in labor. Use the list as an idea bank for yourself, for your children or grandchildren.
Heather’s labor was only five hours, Heidi was born while the kids were still asleep. We decided to do the list anyway so Heather could rest from her night of labor. After hugging and admiring Heidi we ate breakfast and then began our marathon list. The object of the marathon was to complete it in one day. We only accomplished 3/4 by dinnertime! The snag in time that I didn’t account for was the toy from Target- they didn’t want to move on to the next thing, they wanted to play with the toy.
What a memorable day!
California is experiencing the worst drought in history. They supply America with more vegetables than any other state. 11 States have been declared disaster areas because of the dry conditions. This should sound an alarm to pray and prepare. Pray for families who will be out of work, family businesses that will close, ones who can’t afford escalating costs of food…and prepare by planting gardens.
We can grow our own gardens to help offset soaring prices of food for our families and those we know in need. I planted seeds indoors this past weekend for a spring garden. I’ll plant my summer seeds indoors in a couple of weeks. Just tonight we ate Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai. The squash was as fresh as when we picked it out of our garden seven months ago. It’s rewarding to grow your own produce and enjoy it all year. Even though this has been a harsh winter my kale is still growing- amazing. It is being said by public officials that this drought could have cataclysmic impact on food prices.
The California Farm Water Coalition said that the hardest hit crops will be tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, cantaloupes, garlic, peppers and corn. Many other foods will be affected but these are at the top. Purchase some organic tomato seeds now and plant in the next week indoors. Plant transplants after danger of frost (when will that be this year?).
Proverbs 31:25 “Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.” KJV
1 spaghetti squash (slice open and bake for 40-45 minutes in 375 degree oven)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
1/3 cup mushrooms, sliced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 cup baby organic corn- I usually use zucchini instead of corn.
scallions or chives to taste
15 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 chicken breast, sliced thin and chopped
parsley to taste
2 organic eggs, beaten
olive oil, coconut oil or sesame oil
3 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar- add when finished
salt to taste
Sauté all vegetables in couple tablespoons oil for 5 min’s on med high. I usually cook the onions, garlic and carrots first then add the others. Don’t over cook them. Add shrimp and chicken, sauté for an additional 5-7 minutes. Add beaten eggs and cook on medium high until done-fast. Don’t over cook. Scrape the spaghetti squash out and into the skillet of vegetables. Stir all well. Add oil when the pan looks dry, go easy. Turn heat off. Put heaping helping on each plate, top with sliced avocado and scallions or chives.
You can substitute any vegetable you have for the one’s suggested. You can also omit the eggs if you want. Sesame oil gives a more distinctive flavor.
