"Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts." Hebrews 4:7

There are several different instances at which we get multiple chances to be prepared for what we are about to face i.e. sports, driving tests, dating, college, etc., but when it comes to being ready for eternity, we won't get that kind of practice. No one knows when we will depart this earth through death or be called home at Jesus' return.

There have also been many false predictions about the date of Christ’s second coming - despite our Lord’s emphatic words: 
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only” (Matt. 24:36). 
Christ told His followers that instead of trying to predict the date of His return, they should “watch” (v.42) and “be ready” (v.44).

If you were called to eternity today, would you be prepared to meet God face-to-face? Have you opened your heart to Him (Hebrews 4:7)? Are your sins forgiven? Are you ready to go to Heaven?

God's call may be at any time-so be ready ALL the time.


Jason & I decided to do "Our First Pinterest Project" together. We both agreed upon a Ceramic Tile Flower pot. 

They were so much fun to make together, however, it did become a quite expensive project. Here is a great "How-To Guide".

I am currently reading Defending Jacob by William Landay

Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: His fourteen-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

Every parental instinct Andy has rallies to protect his boy. Jacob insists that he is innocent, and Andy believes him. Andy must. He’s his father. But as damning facts and shocking revelations surface, as a marriage threatens to crumble and the trial intensifies, as the crisis reveals how little a father knows about his son, Andy will face a trial of his own—between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he’s tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive.

Award-winning author William Landay has written the consummate novel of an embattled family in crisis—a suspenseful, character-driven mystery that is also a spellbinding tale of guilt, betrayal, and the terrifying speed at which our lives can spin out of control.

I am thoroughly enjoying this book! It definitely has kept me intrigued the entire way through. It's a MUST READ FOR SURE!


These are so quick, easy, and delicious. What's not to love?

               2 tablespoons butter
               1 (10.5 ounce) package miniature marshmallows (about 4 cups)
               ½ cup peanut butter (I used crunchy, but it is whatever you prefer)
               5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
               8 “Fun Sized” Butterfinger bars, crushed (about ½ cup)
You may want to set aside 2-3 butterfinger bars for garnishing the top, but again, personal preference.

1.            In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2.            Stir in peanut butter until melted. Add Rice Krispies cereal and chopped Butterfingers; stir until well coated.
3.            Using a buttered spatula, evenly press mixture into a greased 9-inch by 9-inch square pan. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, then cut into squares.
Yield: 9-12 bars
