Something To Think About

                                He has RISEN!
                           He has RISEN indeed!

I hope you had a great Easter!
My husband and I had a wonderful, sunny & restful day! I didn't want to have a traditional Italian Easter sooooo.......
We went to church, had a yummy breakfast, went swimming and BBQed steak western style! We had so much fun! Maybe because we did something out of the ordinary. I want to make good memories, its all we have to leave our loved ones!
How did you spend your Easter?

 On April 18th, my friend Kim died suddenly. It was on the same day my Dad died last year. I guess I have realized life is short and God can call us home at any moment. I have been thinking about all the people who don't know Jesus. I know Him and I am on the road to knowing Him better! Do you know Him? Do you know if you are absolutely, positively going to heaven??? Not sure?????? A little doubtful?
I know Him and I am going to heaven!

 How Do I Know I Am Going To Heaven????

 Jesus answered, " I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6) 
 Acts 4:12 says, "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

We must accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. Then start a personal relationship with Him, by reading the Bible. That's where we get to know who He is and His promises. Start reading the Four Gospels Mathew, Mark, Luke and John.

I don't mean to get on my soapbox, but I think it is important for you to think about. I want to know all my friends are going to heaven when they die. I want to spend eternity tablescaping with all of you. Don't you?

I felt led to share that with you today.

                        NOW MY TABLESCAPE!!!!!

We are in my kitchen at the round table.

The little green wine glasses I bought at Goodwill in Buffalo, NY.

The chargers & white pleated plates are a Goodwill find.

The napkins I purchased at Goodwill in Texas. The placemats were given to me by my neighbor, Shelly from Buffalo.

I love the white pleated plates! I use them often. I am glad I bought them.

This green plate I bought in Marshal's for my last post. Do you see the raised bump? It keeps the odd shaped plate from rocking on the white pleated plate!

My beautiful bowl.....I only have two. I bought a placesetting for two at Marshal's.

I just love the swirls of gold.....

The tea set matches.......

My centerpiece...the swan is from Avon..I bought it at Goodwill for .99 cents. The vase & roses are from my living room. One of my favorite colors is vanilla. The mirror, I have had awhile.

A last peek.....

Thank you to Susan at BNOTP for hosting this fun event.

  3. I'll see you in heaven one day for sure. so it is written. Thanks for sharing with us. It's so important and so often put aside. Your table is lovely. i love your dishes.. those bowls are very beautiful. Absolutely. Loved how you used a mirror for the center.

  4. I am so glad you and dh had a good Easter, it is good to do things differently sometimes!
    I am so sorry about your friend. I lost my best friend when she was 41 and left 2 little girls behind. I still miss her!

  5. So sorry to hear about your friend. It does make you realize how short our time is here when something like that happens.

    Love your table for two, I pick up "twos" often at HG, since they're usually easier to come by & there are only two of us!

  6. Praise the Lord for your boldness in the Gospel. Your tablescape is lovely. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

  7. Elaine, I am so sorry for the loss of your friend.
    Your table is beautiful, as always.

  8. Your table is beautiful, but it pales in comparison to the beauty of your testimony and the truth you give in this post.
    May God use it to convict hearts and bring souls to His Son, our Saviour!
    I am so sorry for your loss.
    God bless you.
