And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Nothing like the smell of ...

fresh baked cookies!!! YUmMY!!! I am making a batch or two for a church fundraiser. Sort of a test run to see how it goes, then maybe I will do it again. They smell SooOOooo Good!!! i had to make sure they were delish ;), so hubby and I halved one. As much as I would like another ... I will not do it:). I will try to give you an idea of how yummy they smell with the pics though:) Take a deep breath and enjoy :

Another Chocolaty creation today was my bella card. Cass sent me this yUMMY paper in a RAK a while back. I LOVE it. i am not so good with cupcakeabella ... but this one I like. I usually go too bright with her. I hope I made you hungry and craving cookies .. so you will be right where I am ... thinking about them but cant have them, lol. Have a great day !!!!!
