"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12.


The reality of G♡d is found in the living verb "I Am That I Am"

Regardless of how people name God : "Jehovah" or "Bob"
Or idolize God as one of these things:
The Box
Flower of Life
the living (no)THING is the real deal
the truest "pronunciation" of G♡d's name is:

Just be >>>IAM<<< still.

I dare you. <3
 
 
 
 
Recipe: Perfect French Toast
So yummy.

Better than ihop.

Ingredients:
  • 4 - 5 slices of deliciously unhealthy fluffy white bread (like Sara Lee Artesano)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBS milk (coconut recommended)
  • 2 TBS butter
  • Maple Syrup (real pure maple syrup highly recommended)
  • Whipped Cream

Instructions:
  1. Melt 1 TBS butter in pan over low medium heat.
  2. Whisk together: eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla.
  3. When pan is ready, coat 1 piece of bread on both sides with the egg mixture, and put it in the pan. Cook for a few minutes, then turn. Should be slightly browned.
  4. My pan is big enough to cook 2 slices at a time. Then I melt the other TBS butter, and cook the other 2 slices. Sometimes there's enough egg-mixture left for an extra slice.
  5. Serve on a plate, topped with maple syrup and whip cream.
. . . P.S. about normal breads ::: glOOten is very bad for u ::: "gums up the works" ..

Crochet Tutorial: Overlapping Pillow Case
Decorate any old dingy pillow with a beautiful crochet covering!

Very easy to do - you basically make a long strip of fabric 2.5 x the height of your pillow, and stitch the edges together to make an envelope....


2.5x length
Crochet a piece of fabric the same length as your pillow and 2.5 x the height. You can use virtually any stitch pattern - I used the "interlocking rows" stitch.
You want the fabric to fully wrap around the pillow then overlap by approximately 1/2 the height.
Once you have the correct size, sc around the side edge, the bottom edge, and other side edge of the fabric.
End off all yarns and weave in all ends.

placing marker
Wrap the fabric around the pillow, and put a marker in the stitch where the bottom edge will meet up with the side edge.

Picture
Remove the pillow, and fold the fabric how it will go when it's on the pillow, then sl st the edges together beginning at the marker. I like to do "sl st 1, ch 1" - it makes a prettier edging.
Repeat on the other side.

pillowcase button
Pop the pillow inside the case, and sew on a button.
Using the interlocking rows stitch, the last row conveniently had large spaces that made perfect button holes - but you can easily crochet on a button loop if needed.

 
 
Crochet Interlocking Rows Stitch Tutorial
This is a really neat stitch - makes a very interwoven fabric - so you can use a larger hook and still not have lots of holes. And it's so fun to play with the colors. You need atleast 3 colors, but can use as many as you want.

Written instructions below, as well as a video demonstration.

Pattern:
  1. Ch any even amount. Beg 2nd ch frm hk, sc across. Join 2nd color (pull through last 2 lps of last st)
  2. Ch 1. Turn. Sc 1. *Ch 1, sc 1* across. Join 3rd color.
  3. Ch 1. Turn. Sc 1. Dc into row 1 st below ch 1 sp (work over the prv row st - not in front of or behind). *Ch 1, sk dc, dc into st below ch 1 sp* across. Sc in last. Change color.
  4. Ch 1. Turn. *Ch 1, sk dc, Dc into st below ch 1 sp*. Sc in last. Change color.
Repeat until the last row.
  • Last row: Ch 1. Sc into ea dc and st below ch 1 sp across.
  • Border: *Ch 1, sc across* each edge.
[notes: you will change color at the end of every row in the same manner. Just pick up the color that is waiting for you there... every row begins and ends with sc. Always ch 1 to skip a dc. So if there is a dc after the first sc of the row, ch 1 after you make your sc. If there is a dc right before the last st of the row, ch 1 before you make the last sc]

Some projects I did using this stitch:
 
 
 “I AM that I AM” sums up the whole truth. 

The method is summed up in “BE STILL”. 

 What does “stillness” mean?
It means “destroy yourself ”.
Because any form or shape is the cause of trouble.
Give up that notion that “I am so and so.”

This planter is a "wicking pot" without drainage holes - it works great, you just need to be mindful not to overwater. Mine only needs water every 3 weeks or so: when the soil no longer feels moist and the pot feels light-weight.
Crochet Flower Pot
Download PDF version of this tutorial

Materials Required:

  • 1 crocheted pot (“Sabbath Rest Flower Pot” crochet pattern used for the planter in the photos)
  • 1 plant
  • Potting soil
  • Perlite or pebbles
  • 1 Old sock, or scrap fabric
  • 3 Plastic shopping bags
  • Scissors


Protective Barrier
1- Protective Barrier
Place the pot inside a plastic bag. Wrap the bag over the edges of the planter to the inside. This prevents the planter from getting dirt all over it while being stuffed.


Waterproof Liner
2- Waterproof Liner
Place 2 plastic bags inside the planter, one at a time. Smooth them out against the edges of the planter as much as possible, and fold the tops over the edge of the planter to the outside.

Water Reservoir: Perlite Stuffed Sock
3- Water Reservoir
This is optional, but is helpful since the planter will not have a hole in the bottom for excess water to escape. Place some pebbles or perlite into the bottom of the planter. You can either stuff a sock with perlite and coil it in the bottom of the planter, or you can just put an inch or two of perlite in the bottom of the planter and cover it with a scrap of fabric - tuck down the edges of the fabric as best you can - this is to prevent dirt from getting into the water reservoir.


Add Dirt
4- Dirt
Stuff the planter with dirt - leaving a hole big enough for the plant. Try to pack and smooth the dirt against the edges of the planter, shaping it as you go. Stuff as much as you can around the sides up to the top - it can be difficult to fill these spaces after the plant is inside.

Plant
5- Plant
Put the plant in, and complete stuffing the pot with dirt. Keep in mind it is a soft/flexible planter, so the dirt shapes it - make it nicely rounded if you can.

Cut Bags
6- Cut Bags
Cut the two inner bags close to the level of the soil. Be careful not to cut the plant or the planter. Then cut the outer bag, being extra careful not to cut the planter.

Trim bags close
7- Finishing touches
Trim the edges of the bags close to the soil so that they are barely noticeable. CAREFULLY!

Crochet Planter in Hanger
8- Give your planter a home!
This white one was put into a hanger in my kitchen.
Water it from the top - keeping in mind there is a reservoir to catch extra water which should wick up into the soil.
