Nothing trifle about it...

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend... I just love the spring-time of the year... just wish it was a little more spring-like in the temperature department... I'm not complaining! *Ü*
I wanted to share my "masterpiece" with you from a PC party I did last night... doesn't it look so yummy??? And it tasted as good as it looks... it is made in the P. Chef trifle bowl... I named this dessert... "Strawberry Dream Trifle"... chocolate, strawberries, pudding, cream cheese, whip topping... I would say that is a dream! The nice thing about this bowl is that it comes in 2 pieces so you can put the "pedestal" part right inside for storage... also comes with a lid.

Just a little snip it of a verse I came across this morning:

Ecclesiastes 12:1 "Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth."

Anyone that reads my blog on a regular basis knows I get pretty personal in what I write so this will not be a surprise to you... I have to say when I read that verse I thought about my parents... what a blessing they are to have as parents... I don't know where I would be if they hadn't shown me Jesus at a very young age... no, I didn't always like living with restrictions (I was the child that tried my mother's patience... big time!)... but how thankful I am for it now. I guess what I am trying to say is, "thanks Mom & Dad"... I know I have told them this before, but I don't want another day to go by without it being said again. Time is so fleeting... if there is something you need to do or something you need to say to someone... don't put it off for another day. A word of encouragement, a hug, giving your life to Christ, whatever it may be... by putting things off we find ourselves living a mediocre life... I don't want to live an OK life... none of us were put on this earth for that... I want to live a life that honors God... He wants the best for me & you too... take the time to do the things you are being led to do... that is what I am going to try to do... how 'bout you?

Thanks to all of you that stop in & leave a word of encouragement... my blog friends are the best!

with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Delicious looking! It made my mouth water...I'm in the mood for just such a dessert!

Just found my way to your blog through your comment on Women to Women Sharing Jesus! I'm so glad you left a trail so I could discover your wonderful blog. I scrolled down and thoroughly enjoyed all your artwork. I was blessed by the pervasive testimony to Christ you offer in every post. What a joy to read!

Thank you for stopping by Women to Women! I love having visitors who stay a while and participate.

Would love to "chat" with you through email about writing a devotion on WTW for us. Your heart's passion and skill are the right combination! I'll try to email you...

Nope...couldn't find an email address for you, Carin...so if you'd just email me, I love to explore the possibility of submitting a devotion for WTW. Thanks! Blessings on your day...Diane

Hello You,

Don't want to lose any sleep over it...........lol.
