Family Time Challenge Update

As I promised here is the update on how my challenge to spend more time family went.

So I tried each day to take some time even if it was just a few moments and spend quality time family. Here’s some of what I got to do.

1. I got to play some new games with them.

2. I got to catch up with how everyone was doing.

3. I got to dance with my sister.

4. We sat around the Christmas tree one evening, sipped hot chocolate, and talked.

5. We went Christmas light searching and sang Christmas carols.

6. We had a very restful Christmas day.

So it was a nice Christmas break. I enjoyed it. I hope that yours was a restful and blessed Christmas as well.

Merry Christmas

May God bless you with joy and peace now and throughout the New Year.

I hope that you are all enjoying time with family today.
Have a very merry Christmas!

Thankful by Josh Groban

Somedays we forget

To look around us
Somedays we can't see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give.
So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for

What we still can't see.
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves
There's so much sorrow
It's way too late to say
I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It's so long overdue
So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences
There is a place we're all connected
Each of us can find each other's light

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more

There's so much to be thankful for

The Little Drummer Boy

Come, they told me, pa rum pa pum pum
A newborn King to see, pa rum pa pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pa pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pa pum pum,
Rum pa pum pum, rum pa pum pum
So to honor Him, pa rum pa pum pum

When we come
Little baby, pa rum pa pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pa pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pa pum pum
That's fit to give our King, pa rum pa pum pum,
Rum pa pum pum, rum pa pum pum
Shall I play for You, pa rum pa pum pum
Mary nodded, pa rum pa pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pa pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pa pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pa pum pum,
Rum pa pum pum, rum pa pum pum
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pa pum pum
Me and my drum

   Sometimes like this little drummer boy, we feel we have nothing to give God. We come to Him with hands that seem to be empty. But then God prompts, "Look again."
   When we look we see things we forgot we had. A hand with a gentle touch, a voice that can bless, a heart full of tenderness for others, or a forgiving heart.
   Gently He reminds us, "Go and give what you have."

Time, Christmas, and Family.

     If you’re like me I spend a lot of time giving to others. I make blankets for charity. I make cards, write them, and give them away. I volunteer, I teach, and I help out.

   And I bet you do too. All year you give to others. You work, craft, and give.
   Sometimes we get so focused on giving to others that we forget to give to family.
   I know that this year has brought many changes to my life. God has allowed me to do things like this blog. Teach co-op. Write a play. Help a friend with her wedding. In many ways I’m doing the things I have always wanted to do.
   Yet all this has taken time away from family. Now everyone is getting ready for the holidays. Co-op is taking a Christmas break. My friend is happily married now. My writing right now consists of blog posts. Things have quieted down.
   In some ways it’s hard to get back to being focused on home life having spent the last four months running around. But God is good and He has been helping me.
   It has been good to have a break. To be able to rest and put my feet up without getting behind. It has been nice to be able to spend more time with family.
   And that it what I am looking forward to the most this Christmas. I look forward to spending some time with my family talking around a brightly lit Christmas tree.
   Let’s make a goal now through Christmas to spend a little time with family each day. Even if it’s just a kind word or sitting listening while someone else talks. Let’s take some time every day to take some family time.
   I’ll let you know how it goes at the end of the month.

Christmas Is Coming

        All the cards are made. The gifts (for the most part) are bought and under tree. There are still some cookies to make. But I can’t make those until later.
        Now is the time to sit back and enjoy the season. Now is the time to enjoy family and friends.
        This Christmas, let’s take some time to enjoy the season. Do as much as you can ahead of time. Then enjoy the time with family.
       The best gifts we can give, is time. Let your family know how special they are make sure to take some time with them.
       Then lets make some special things for our families. It doesn’t have to be anything big, but make some little things to let them know they’re loved.
       Have a very merry Christmas.

Ministry Update: Co-op

On Thursday I completed my first semester of co-op. Here are just a few things that God has allowed me to do (ministry wise).

1. I got to teach five girls some homemaking arts

2. I got to sing and bless some people.

3. I got write not only in the co-op newsletter, but I also got to write an adaptation of a book in play form that is going to be produced.

4. I got to give cards and gifts to people who were having birthdays and to my secret sister.

5. I got to be the hands and feet of Christ many times.

Through one ministry I have gotten to do many little ministries. And that has been a blessing.

Your Favorite ...

What is your favorite ministry or charity to give to?
What do you enjoy making the most?

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

The Reasons...

Why do we do ministry? Is it to make kids happy? Is it to check off the ministry on our checklist?

           Anything we do should have a good reason behind it. Whether it’s ministry, play, work, or rest time. But what should our reason be?

I know that sometimes I even struggle with the reasons. I get so busy focusing on other things that I forget why I do what I do.

Here are two reasons I have found to do ministry. Yet they are so intertwined that you cannot have one without the other. Therefore I’ll put the most important one first.

1. For the glory of God. When we give up what we have made with no thought of being repaid, in God’s name, it gives Him glory. There is so much in the world that smears God’s name. To have someone that makes His name glorious is a rare find indeed. But you can make His name great by doing something very small. You can give in His name. And when you do, people will notice and give glory to God.
2. To show others the love of God. When we give to others, we show them the love of God. This is an unselfish love. A love that gives with no thought to itself. People may have heard about this love, but unless we display it by our actions thy will never believe. But praise be to God, He allows us to display his love to the world by what we do.

Sorry I haven't been posting lately.
Things here have been crazy. I find that all of my energy has been focused on doing ministry and I haven't had a lot of time to write about it.
Hopefully I'll get back to posting soon. :)

Just a Little Blanket

    One of my favorite things that I do for charity is make preemie baby blankets for a local hospital.

    It takes me about 2 days to make a baby blanket and about 1 day to make a baby gown. Yet I know that it’s such a blessing.
    The hospital takes the blankets and they lay the babies on top or them when they put them in under the lamps. They can’t use normal blankets because it would irritate the baby’s skin.
    It’s not much, but it does help. I like making little blankets and gowns. It’s good to know that I’m making the day of a preemie baby and their parents, a little brighter.

A Prayer

           Hebrews 13:20-21 (NIV) May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Finishing Projects

     I think it must be a curse. I’ve been working on a project. I’ve been working at it for a while.
Then it happens. It sneaks up on me, as I get closer to the end of the project. It’s called. I get tired of the project. After doing the same thing three hundred times, it loses it’s appeal. After working at the same thing for a month it gets monotonous. After keeping at it for a while I just want to be done without having to do the rest of the work.

It happens a lot. We get halfway through a project and we don’t want to finish.

So what do you do when the half-finished project blues hit? Here are a few suggestions.

Put the project down for a while. Sometimes just setting the project aside for a few days can make a world of difference. You get a rest and come back ready to go another round.

Also find a new audiobook, or some new music to listen to while you work. If you are really enjoying what you’re listening to, it makes the work lighter.

Remember why you started the project in the first place. Keep in mind why or for whom you wanted this project to be for. It makes a big difference.

Lastly, keep at it. After everything has been said and done, just keep at it. That’s way projects get done is by simply, methodically, and sometimes strenuously get done.

In the end all projects are work, but in they are very much worthwhile.

Dorcas: A Woman Of Charity

      James 1:27 (NIV) Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Dorcas for the Bible was practicing this long before James wrote these words.

In the days of Paul, Tabitha or Dorcas was a woman of charity. She was always doing good to others. If someone needed help at the soup kitchen, Dorcas volunteered. If a widow needed a new cloak, Dorcas got out her loom. If a beggar lacked food, Dorcas would get him some. She was a woman of kindness and love.

Although the account of this woman is short we can learn from this woman.

She was always helping others. There was never a time when she wasn’t busy. My mom says all the time; “If you’re busy it will keep you out of trouble.” This is very true. When we are so busy doing good and helping others, we won’t have time to do silly things like listen to gossip, dwell on sin, or have time for temptation.

This isn’t to say that just keeping a busy schedule will eliminate sin from your life. But it will help to keep you focused on Godly things.

She was well loved. When she died the widows sent to Joppa to get Peter. The church urged Peter to come and help them. Once Peter arrived he was surround by widows who showed of Dorcas’ work. When we reflect God’s love into this work, we will be loved. One of the telltale marks of a believers is that they are loved by others members of Christ’s body. As we work to love and give to others, we will gain friends that will help and encourage us. Dorcas had many of these.

Docas was even rescued from death. God saw that she still had work to do. He used Peter to bring her back to life. What we can learn? Use the time that you have well. God gives all of us second chances to do that what He calls us to do. Continue to work and do what He calls you to do. And you will be blessed.

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 (NIV)
    Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

Talents and How to Use Them Part 6

            Time is the most precious thing we have. It’s one of the things that can never be bought back or wished back. It’s a great gift.
            Your time is valuable and precious and there are many ways that you can use it for God. Giving of our time and energy can make a difference in our homes, our cities, and our world. Never discount the value of simply shining God’s light. Even if you are just sitting in a back room of a charity office, doing seemingly meaningless things. No matter what you do, ask God to bless it and He will. Remember you carry God with you wherever you go.
            Having said that here’s a few ideas for how you could spend a few hours of you time.
            Volunteer to go visit some sick patients in the hospital. Hospitals can be very lonely places. My little sister spent a month in ICU when she was three. We were so blessed by the people who took time to come visit. It made all the difference in the world to have brothers and sisters in Christ come and encourage us.
            Volunteer at a local food pantry or soup kitchen.
            Offer to coordinate a church party or a fun day out for your church. Sometimes all people need is a little help getting started.
            Numerous charities and ministries need volunteers who are willing to address envelopes, sort through donations, or run errands. Just look around there are plenty out there that need help.
            I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Just look around. Keep your eyes open and pray for opportunities to open up. You’ll be amazed to see what does come along.
            Finally let God lead you. Let im show you whatHim show you whaLHimhhhhhhhchdtytfgtdggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggnhkkkkkkkkkHim guide you into what He has planned. Remember this dear sister, as He leads, He always provides strength and peace.

Talents and How to Use Them Part 5

Encouragement. We all need it. Many times we get tired and discouraged. We take our eyes off our Savior.

That’s were encouragers come in. They are people who lift us up. They are people who build us up. They are people who point us back to the One who made us. They are people who spur us on to love and good works.

Do you have a heart to encourage people like that? If you do, I feel that this is one of the best gifts that you can have. I know that for me, encouragers are some of the most important people in my life.

Yet how do you use this gift? There are so many ways, some of which we’ve already talked about.

The biggest way you can encourage others is to offer them friendship. When you give someone the gift of true and honest friendship, it gives you the power to bless and encourage them.

Another idea is to start a small group that meets at your house. You can just get together and talk or you can do a Bible study, but in whatever you choose to do it gives you a great chance to encourage others. Or if you don’t feel comfortable starting something, join a group where you can feel comfortable.

Take a younger sister in Christ under your wing for a year and write her letters on a regular basis.

Live it out. Make encouragement a lifestyle that you live by. Wherever you go and in whatever you do, let you light shine. God is with you.

Talents and How to Use Them Part 4


Teaching. Does that word give you chills? It gave me chills for a long time. I had so much that I wanted to share. I wanted to help point others to God. I wanted to show others God’s love.

But I always felt that I wasn’t a good teacher. I stammered and faltered. I was a bit of a scatter brain and clueless as to how to teach.

Then one day, I was asked to teach a homemaking class. I paused. I thought, I want to do this, but can I? After all I’m just an ordinary teenager. How can I teach a class? What if I fail?

As I struggled, one of the things that I realized was that I was more afraid of failure than anything else. I wasn’t afraid of planning or my students, I was afraid of failure and the unknown.

Needless to say. God came and helped me overcome this. He helped me to see that He would be in me and would help me.

I said I would take the place of head teacher of the class. Sometimes all we need to do to overcome fear is to face it head on. I found out that your fear lessens when you take it on.

After a lot of preparation and prayer, I went and taught my first class. I was amazed at how easy it was. We did a craft and talked about homemaking. It was surprisingly easy. They’re learning (hopefully) and I’m getting to help. It’s a rewarding and fun.

If you want to share some of what God or your parents have taught you, but are afraid of failure or teaching, can I encourage you? Face your fears. Don’t let them rule you. If you want to teach, let the Spirit be your guide. Follow God’s lead and let Him show you wonderful things.

Talents and How to Use Them Part 3

Singing. I love to sing. You can often find me listening and singing along with some Christian music.

The great thing is singing is one of those gifts that have so many different ways to use it for God, but here are a few thoughts.

Think about singing a special song at your church. This can be a great way to bless your brothers and sisters in Christ. You never know who may need encouragement that day.

Offer to sing at a nursing home. Elderly people rarely have visitors. It’s a great blessing to them when people take time to visit them.

Many times this is one of those gifts that you end up using simply by having it. When you use it to the best of your ability people will start to take notice and ask you to sing. Sometimes all we have to do is make ourselves available. You never know what God will bring along.

Talents and How to Use Them Part 2


     “Of all the words of tongue and pin…” We have a lot of them. We have hundreds of ways to communicate these days. With the rise of blogs, magazines, books, sermons, podcasts, internet, e-mail, Facebook, and TV we have literally hundreds of ways to talk to people.

       Sadly though, very little of all that is on the internet and in books is whole some and good. We struggle to find good things to read and listen to. We have more to read than ever before, but less good things to read.

       That’s were good writers are needed. We have many Christian publicans that need good articles and stories. You can write on any subject that you are passionate about and share it with others. You can share your thoughts and dreams with others and share what God has been showing you.

    Or start a blog where you can share you spiritual journey. Blogs are an easy and fun way to make friends, share your thoughts, and keep a journal of sorts.

    There are numerous ways that you can use your talent for writing. Just look around and find some places to use it.

     Here are a few magazines that need writers. They don’t pay, but you can encourage people. That yields its own rewards.

Talents and How to Use Them Part 1

       All of us have different talents. We all have things we’re good at. We all have different things we enjoy.

       At this blog I try to help those who are crafty find ministries that they can help out with. But some of you have other talents. You have great talent, but aren’t sure how to use it. Or maybe you just need a fresh look at how you could use what God has given you.
       I’d like to take a few posts to think through some of the ways to use different skills. I hope that you are blessed and encouraged.

A Good Website

    Earlier this year I was given a flyer for Bernat Cares. Normally I don’t do online memberships, but when I saw the website I was impressed.
     If you’re looking for free patterns this is a great site. You set up your account (which is free! J) then you can search any pattern you want and put it in your online library for free. Then anytime you want that particular pattern you just go online and download it.
    One of the great features about it is, there are no annoying adds. You’re not put on any e-mail lists unless you want to. And you can access thousands of patterns for free. I do love the sound of that word.
     With easy sign in and navigation, this site is ideal for knitters and crocheters alike.
     I found this site very helpful. I trust you will too.

Upcoming Classes

        You know when I wrote in my ideas corner about teaching a class? I could have imagined that in less then a year I would be the head teacher of a class.
        Last week I was offered to teach a homemaking class and I accepted. Now the planning and preparation begin.
        To be honest, I’m a little nervous. I’ve never thought that I have been a good teacher, but when they offered I felt God telling me to take the position. Needless to say, I’ve been doing a lot of praying and planning.
        The good thing is God has been helping me. He has been giving me strength and ideas.
        The good thing is, homemaking is a subject that I feel very comfortable in. Since I do a lot of homemaking (even though I’m still a stay at home daughter) I hope to teach about the elements of a good home, decorating, planning, cleaning, being a good hostess, and filling your home with love.
        I don’t know how well I’ll do, but I hope to teach them about more then just how to arrange flowers, but how to make a house into a home.
        We’ll see how my adventure in teaching goes.

Help! My Best Friend Is Getting Married!

        My best friend announced last Sunday that she is getting married.
        So one of the next things that jumps to my mind is what am I going to give her for her bridal shower and wedding.
         If your anything like me you want to give her something unique and special. But aren’t sure what to do. After some thinking I came up with a few things that I thought I might share with you.
         I guess this does depend on the person. But here are few ideas.

Make them a cross stitched poem for their house.

Write a special letter to the bride about what a wonderful friend she has been. Then frame it as a keepsake.

Make a centerpiece for their new table. Think about using things like fake flowers or little figurines, so that they can keep it for years to come.

Give them a cookbook with some of you favorite recipes in it.

Or if you want to be more practical, give them new couple a kitchen starter package. Include things like sponges, a trashcan, dishwashing soap, ect.

Do have any ideas?

Ministry: Blessing Or Burden?

Have you ever become exhausted while doing ministry? I certainly have Even though God says not to become weary while doing good, I still find myself getting tired as I work on charity projects. I find my heart getting discouraged in the midst of God’s work. Many times I even take my eyes off the reason that I’m doing these things and just focus on getting it done. It becomes one more thing on my to do list.
Lets face it ministry can become a burden. We can make a preemie baby blanket, but merely to put a check on our list. We can sing in church, but be filling the air with empty notes. We can help out at the nursing home, but be doing it just to get some brownie points. It’s easy to slip into the routine of going through the motions in ministry. But when the heart of ministry is gone, simply going through the motions won’t help. We soon end up tired, weary, and discouraged.
But take heart, dear sister. We love a God of encouragement. He takes the poor, tired, dry, and burned out children and makes them whole again. He is a God of strength as well as love. He is a God of restoration as well as hope.
If you feel weary, look to Him. Take time away from ministry to sit with Him and let Him renew you. Take a breath and let God fill you with His strength. When we focus on Him, he will give us all that we need. 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV) And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. The pretty much covers everything doesn’t it?
Don’t give up. Take time to seek God. He is with you and will help you.

A Song

I love this song. It's so comforting.

A visitor from Heaven
If only for a while
A gift of love to be returned
We think of you and smile

A visitor from Heaven
Accompanied by grace
Reminding of a better love
And of a better place

With aching hearts and empty arms
We send you with a name
It hurts so much to let you go
But we’re so glad you came
We’re so glad you came

A visitor from Heaven
If only for a day
We thank Him for the time He gave
And now it’s time to say
We trust you to the Father’s love
And to His tender care
Held in the everlasting arms
And we’re so glad you’re there
We’re so glad you’re there

With breaking hearts and open hands
We send you with a name
It hurts so much to let you go
But we’re so glad you came
We’re so glad you came

A Simple thank You

We as Americans are so blessed. We have police to protect our neighborhoods. We have the border patrol to guard our borders. We have an army to defend us abroad. Yes, we are truly blessed.
Yet even with all this, it’s not often that we as Christians do anything for the men and women who protect us. We like to think that if we ever need them, they’re only a call away. But how many times do we say, “Thank you?” We sit in church and pray without fear, and don’t even pray for the men and women who give us that freedom?
Sadly many of us (me included) enjoy the freedom that this country provides without giving a second thought to the men and women who give us that freedom day in and day out.
You may be asking, “What can we do?” Great question! You always come up with good ones!
There are many things that you can do. It can be as simple as giving your local police department or fire station a batch of cookies. You could pray for the men and women who protect our freedoms. And my personal favorite is something very simple. When you see someone in uniform – police, firefighter, or military – tell them thank you. It doesn’t have to be in flowery words. It can be as simple as, “Thank you for serving our country.”
You don’t know what that will mean to them. Sometimes your thank you will be the only kind words they will hear for a long time.
For those of you who travel and get weary of all the airport security, remember they are protecting you and your family from threats. So when you’re going through customs make sure to say thank you to the security guards.
These may seem like little things. But it’s the little daily things that you do that will affect people for eternity.

A Prayer

Dear God,
Hold these precious children in Your arms.
You alone can heal what is broken.
You alone can dry the tears that have been shed.
Give them what they need to make it through each day.
Be a light to their path,
And a shelter in the midst of the storm.
Your Child

As You Work Remember...

 In whatever you do work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Welcome To Homemade Ministry

Welcome to Homemade Ministry. My name is Rose H. I am starting this blog to get the word out about ministries and charities that need crocheted, knitted, sewn, and other hand-crafted items.
I promise you that I have checked out each of these charities beforehand. All of them are working charities that you can help. I try to find charities that have branches in every state, but for those charities that don’t have a branch in your area you might consider sending them a package.
But the word ministry doesn’t mean that you have to take on a huge project. You can do anything from a four inch square for an afghan, to a preemie baby dress, to a hat for someone with cancer, to an afghan for a troubled kid. Take a look around and find out about ways you can help.
Each week I will post new ministries, pattern sites, or others things about how you can help out others.
Finally, just do whatever God leads. Hopefully this blog can be your starting point for your own homemade ministry.
