“Waiting for that golden moment when fear and desire die, and only the unspeakable reality of love remains. “

This picture was taken by one of my friends in WI.  It is next to his house.  This is why I liked Winter in WI.  Can you belive that is only 7″ of snow?  He lives in a Beautiful area, with incredible views.  I wish I could take you all there one day. 

You really should click on the picture to get the full beauty of it.

I found this on the myspace home page.  I can’t wait to try it with my Nephew!!!  It is super short, but your kids will love it!  I think even you will love it!  It shows you step by step how to do it.  Have fun and let me know if you tried it!  I couldn’t get the video to pop up, so you will have to click on the words magic milk to watch the video.  It is only 2 min.  long.  But worth the time to learn to do it with your kids.

Dinosaurs and Black Tar December 27, 2007

Filed under: fun activities — smlwoman @ 11:12 am

My posts in this section won’t always seem like they go with the time of year.  They will just come out as I think of them or do them with my nephew or kids I nanny for. 

dinosauradventureprod.jpg This Christmas my nephew wanted dinosaurs.  I found him a bucket with five or six dinos and trees and such at Toys R Us.  It is really a great bucket especially for the great price of $10. 

While watching him play with them I remembered an activity I did with my class a few times.

We made black tar to go with the Dinosaurs.  The kids loved playing in it, and it was a simple clean up.

Random Acts of Kindness or the Spirit’s Prompting?

Filed under: my thoughts,Uncategorized — smlwoman @ 1:32 am

I kind of understand why, but December always seems to bring about a desire to do random acts of kindness.  But I don’t feel like mine are so random.  I really feel like God is the one pushing me to do them. 

I find that I get more out of the acts then the receiver does.  Actually, I can’t know that for sure, but I do get a lot from the act. 

Many times I am trusting God in the Act.  Approaching strangers is scary.  Especially for me.  Because I  feel like it is God prompting me to do this, I decided to purchase some of those business size cards for inspiration.  All of them giving hope of the existence of God.  I give them along with whatever the act is.  I will try to explain why I feel like it is the Spirit is the one guiding me in these acts.

Angel of Death December 20, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — smlwoman @ 9:47 pm


I was having a conversation with a friend today and she brought up the angel of death.  She thought it was Gabriel.  I couldn’t find anything in the Bible.  He was the Angel that was sent to smite the wicked.  I think that is how she phrased it.  Neither of us is saying it is true, we are asking if anyone out there can clarify this for us. Using Scripture please.  Or if this is just folklore.

I got one of these for Christmas today!  So now I can make up to nine dozen cookies in one bowl!  I love this machine!  Mine is red!!  I love it! Love it!  If you have never made cookies with a stand mixer, I would highly reccomend it!  You will love it, easy dishwasher safe cleanup, and strong!  I can smell the fresh warm cookies now….


Sammy and the KREN Pet Of the Month Contest

Filed under: Uncategorized — smlwoman @ 8:33 pm

I entered my cat in Kren’s pet of the month contest.  You can view Sammy’s photo here

He has some tough competition.  The biggest one is a super cute pic of this dog laying on a bed with his christmas toy.  It looks like he is smiling.  So I may have to reenter Sammy.  They spelled his name wrong, but I can see why.  Anyways, if you click on the link above and scroll down you will see where you can vote for which animal pic you like best.  Don’t feel like you have to vote for Sam.  And if yo do vote, they will ask for a bunch of info, but all you have to give is your email addy and zip code.  I just left the rest of it blank.  Then I voted.  I just wanted to share this.  If you look, let me know what you think of the competition.  This is the pic of Sam I used.
