Numberical Intricacies in Art and Nature

Have you ever thought about Math as Art, No, I had not either until I watched this
incredible video on Google + and saw just how amazing numbers can actually be, how intertwined, intermingled and woven together they are to form such natural objects and shapes. Amazing how intricate, yet so simple these things can be and how nature rises up from the stiff, straightness, curved sharpness to form beauty and grace.

Enjoy and let me know what you thought

Pink Lemonade Pound Cake~~yum

Oh my goodness, I am going to have to make this today, saw it on Pinterest and knew that it would need to be shared here. Thank you to "Baby sugar Aprons" for the great recipe idea 

Pink Lemonade Pound Cake

1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 (3 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
4 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup pink lemonade concentrate
4 drops pink or red food color, optional

Glaze:
1 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup white sugar


Recipe
1) Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour one 10-inch tube pan or
bundt pan.

2) Combine the cake mix, lemon pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, 1/2
cup lemon concentrate and the milk. Mix until smooth. Pour the batter
into the prepared pan.

3) Bake at 350 for 50 minutes to 1 hour. If your oven runs hot be
sure to adjust accordingly!

Remove from oven and prick cake all over with a fork. Immediately
pour lemonade glaze over top of cake.

Let cake stand in pan until almost cool.

LEMONADE GLAZE:
Combine the remaining thawed frozen lemonade and the white sugar. Mix
thoroughly and pour over still warm cake.


I guess you could use this for a Valentine dessert or get together, you can even change the color and use yellow, or green for lemon/limeade flavor, maybe even some strawberries to a strawberry limeade cake.....hmmmmm.
So Easy, and I have all the ingredients in my kitchen already, yipee!!
Have a fab day!!

~The Birdcage ~





There once was a man named George Thomas, pastor in a small New England town.

One Easter Sunday morning he came to the Church carrying a rusty, bent, old bird cage, and set it by the pulpit. Eyebrows were raised and, as if in response,

Pastor Thomas began to speak.....

I was walking through town yesterday when I saw a young boy coming
toward me swinging this bird cage. On the bottom of the cage were three little wild birds, shivering with cold and fright. I stopped the lad and asked, "What do you have there, son?"

"Just some old birds," came the reply.

"What are you going to do with them?" I asked.

"Take 'em home and have fun with 'em," he answered. "I'm gonna tease 'em and pull out their feathers to make 'em fight. I'm gonna have a
real good time."

"But you'll get tired of those birds sooner or later. What will you do then?"

"Oh, I got some cats," said the little boy. "They like birds. I'll take 'em to them."

The pastor was silent for a moment. "How much do you want for those birds, son?"

"Huh?? !!! Why, you don't want them birds, mister."

"They're just plain old field birds. They don't sing. They ain't even pretty!"

"How much?" the pastor asked again.

The boy sized up the pastor as if he were crazy and said, "$10?"

The pastor reached in his pocket and took out a ten dollar bill. He placed it in the boy's hand. In a flash, the boy was gone. The pastor picked up the cage and gently carried it to the end of the alley where there was a tree and a
grassy spot. Setting the cage down, he opened the door, and by softly
tapping the bars persuaded the birds out, setting them free. Well, that explained the empty bird cage on the pulpit, and then the pastor began to tell this story:

One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation. Satan had just come from the Garden of Eden, and he was gloating and boasting. "Yes, sir, I just caught a world full of people down there. Set me a trap, used bait I knew they couldn't resist. Got 'em all!"

"What are you going to do with them?" Jesus asked.

Satan replied, "Oh, I'm gonna have fun! I'm gonna teach them how to marry and divorce each other, how to hate and buse each other, how to drink and smoke and curse. I'm gonna teach them how to invent guns and bombs and kill each other. I'm really gonna have fun!"

"And what will you do when you are done with them?"

Jesus asked. "Oh, I'll kill 'em," Satan glared proudly.

"How much do you want for them?" Jesus asked.

"Oh, you don't want those people. They ain't no good. Why, you'll take them and they'll just hate you. They'll spit on you, curse you and kill you. You don't want those people!"

"How much?" He asked again.

Satan looked at Jesus and sneered, "All your blood, tears and your life."

Jesus said, "DONE!" Then He paid the price.

The pastor picked up the cage and walked from the pulpit.


 Thank you to my friend Teresa for sharing that wonderful story on our forums
 that we would be so inspired.

Crashing Waves ~~

 If you ask me to leap
Out of my boat on the crashing waves
If You ask me to go
Preach to the lost world that Jesus saves

I'll go, but I cannot go alone
Cause I know I'm nothing on my own
But the power of Christ in me makes me strong
Makes me strong

Cause when I'm weak, You make me strong
When I'm blind, You shine Your light on me
Cause I'll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don't need me
How amazing to find that you want me
So I'll stand on Your truth, and I'll fight with Your strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me

If You ask me to run
And carry Your light into foreign land
If You ask me to fight
Deliver Your people from Satan's hand

To reach out with Your hands
To learn through Your eyes
To love with the love of a savior
To feel with Your heart
And to think with Your mind
I'd give my last breath for Your glory

What are you waiting for? Just let kindess boomerang!

It amazes me what just a small gesture of kindness can do to make another person's day. Then again it also amazes me the people that will walk right by another person knowing that they are in need of help and not even smile or say hello, even trying to not make eye contact with them.
This video is great, shows how we should act daily toward our fellow man or woman, even a small act of kindness can boomerang back to you.

Show YOU care today to somebody !! 


Watch as the camera tracks an act of kindness as its passed from one individual to the next and manages to boomerang back to the person who set it into motion.

Watch the official song of the "Life Vest Inside" " Show you Care"



Now that you are all warm and fuzzy, go do something! you will feel great and pass it on to others also. Just imagine if all of those individuals in that video had ignored their heart and just walked on.......


Donations are greatly appreciated: http://lifevestinside.com/donate.php
Stand with us in spreading the love and repost our video on your wall! Together we can make a difference! Re- blogging is expected and appreciated, pass this one for me please!

Something for your Sweethearts

How about a different twist to your favorite Cinnamon Roll recipe, shape them into "hearts" for that special Valentine Sweetheart breakfast, even if your kids are going out the door or like mine staying at home to do school, they will love the sweetness of these little treats.


First you will need a recipe or some store bought Cinnamon rolls, a little extra sugar and cinnamon, butter for extra gooey fun!

Here is a good recipe I found on epicurious that is delicious :

Dough:
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 1/2 cups (or more) unbleached all purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid-rise yeast (from 2 envelopes yeast)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray

Filling:
  • 3/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

Glaze:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For dough:
Combine milk and butter in glass measuring cup. Microwave on high until butter melts and mixture is just warmed to 120°F to 130°F, 30 to 45 seconds. Pour into bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Add 1 cup flour, sugar, egg, yeast, and salt. Beat on low speed 3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of bowl. Add 21/2 cups flour. Beat on low until flour is absorbed and dough is sticky, scraping down sides of bowl. If dough is very sticky, add more flour by tablespoonfuls until dough begins to form ball and pulls away from sides of bowl. Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, adding more flour if sticky, about 8 minutes. Form into ball.
Lightly oil large bowl with nonstick spray. Transfer dough to bowl, turning to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, then kitchen towel. Let dough rise in warm draft-free area until doubled in volume, about 2 hours.
For filling:
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in medium bowl.
Punch down dough. Transfer to floured work surface. Roll out to 15x11-inch rectangle. Spread butter over dough, leaving 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly over butter. Starting at 1 long side, roll dough into log, pinching gently to keep it rolled up. With seam side down, cut dough crosswise with thin sharp knife into 18 equal slices (each about 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide).
Spray two 9-inch square glass baking dishes with nonstick spray. Divide rolls between baking dishes, arranging cut side up (there will be almost no space between rolls). Cover baking dishes with plastic wrap, then kitchen towel. Let dough rise in warm draft-free area until almost doubled in volume, 40 to 45 minutes.
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 375°F. Bake rolls until tops are golden, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and invert immediately onto rack. Cool 10 minutes. Turn rolls right side up.
For glaze:
Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat until smooth. Spread glaze on rolls. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Take your dough and roll it upwards to shape the heart , put in the pan and pinch the bottom to form the heart, you may need to add more sugar and cinnamon to help shape. Drizzle in extra butter if you like and bake as above, you can frost with the cream cheese glaze or serve plain. 
Thank you to http://poppiesatplay.blogspot.com/2010/02/think-about-it-thursday_11.html for the idea, I found on Pinterest.
 
Enjoy and hug your Sweethearts

The Butler Adoption~ help bring these girls home

About $4 for 4 tickets! The Butler Adoption

I just wanted to share this story and encourage others to share and reblog also, help this family get these beautiful girls home where they belong.

Our story ~The Butlers

Our family began the adoption process in May 2010 as a result of Danny's mission work in Nicaragua.  We fell in love with the country and its culture and our plans were to adopt a baby girl or young toddler from there. But God had different plans for us.  The program was going slow and we had hit some bumps along the way.  This past May2011 a friend of ours that was contracted with our same adoption agency was posting photos of some children that were to come to America for the summer on an international orphan hosting program called New Horizons for Children.  The photos she was posting were children that were NOT CHOSEN.  They had not been selected by a host family and there was only one day left before the program closed.  We were immediately drawn to the photo of two sisters and could not get them out of our minds. Many things unfolded very quickly over the next few days that made it clear we were to host them.  But we were contracted with another agency and to adopt from Nicaragua, not Latvia and hosting was going to swallow up a good chunk of our adoption fund.  What was the Lord trying to tell us?  At that point we didn't know what He was doing but what we did know is that these are the faces the snagged us.  Hook, line, and sinker :
 So we jumped in with both feet not sure what was going to happen next!  That's what stepping out in faith is all about right?  Taking the next step and not seeing the stairs below? 

These are our girls leaving for their trip to America.  Unsure of what the family they were coming to would be like and if they'd want to keep them or forget them.

 The summer came and they arrived and in the beginning they were two very scared girls with some major emotional and trust issues but over the next five weeks we came to know each other and they began to trust us.   Bonds were formed and hearts began to mend.  These sweet girls love to be outside, are very athletic, and artistic.  A has an awesome pitching arm while D loves to dance. Both love animals and play piano.  We loved the time we had with them and it went all too fast.  The day we had to return them to Latvia was the hardest day of our life.  Sending our girls away that begged us to stay, to not send them back.  They didn't want to return to the orphanage where life was hard and no one cared. Nobody there to tuck them in an night or to take care of them when they are sick.  But unfortunately we signed a paper that we had to return them or we could get into some big trouble. 

These are my beautiful girls just days before they left us.  Notice the difference in their expressions?  Amazing what family does for a person
 This is our whole family.  Did we mention we have 3 sons too?  We will soon be a family of seven!  God is so awesome!


We just knew that we had to bring them home to us.  FOREVER.  Those were our DAUGHTERS and they belonged WITH US!  So the change in direction and a whole new paper chase began.  I'll skip the boring details and tell you that we have just received our court date!  Latvia requires three trips be made before the adoption is complete, however they do allow the children to return home on a student visa after the first trip so that makes the first trip the most expensive one.  We must bring $9000 on this trip for various expenses.  Tack on another $3700 (two round trip tickets and two one way tickets) in airfare and we are looking at just under $13,000!  Thankfully we were blessed with a $6500 grant from Show Hope but we are still short $6200 to cover the remaining expenses of trip one and the plane tickets.

Did I mention we got a court date?  Court is January 31st! We leave in just 25 days!  That's 25 days to raise $6200!

And since it's a little too cold to get back to holding yard sales or plan a big fundraiser ... here we are.  Would you consider donating $4 (one dollar for each one of our tickets) to help us bring our girls home?  I've seen first hand what difference a little bit makes when the body comes together as a whole.

We would love to have you take a part in bringing our family together in 2012.

But aside from donations we need you to share.  We need you to share our link and ask your friends to donate $4 and share the link too.  If just 1550 people give $4 we have it covered.  We will be all set!
Share our link, ask your friends to donate, tweet, facebook, email and blog about it!
Stand on the street corner, shout it out from the roof tops, write it as graffiti on the bath room walls (kidding about that part) but spread the word!  Tell your mother, tell your neighbors, tell your friends and tell them to tell their friends!
We have been very blessed with a supportive family & friends in this journey. We are coming into the homestretch now and need this final push.  Just about everyone I know can spare $4 and I'd love to see those little $4 turn into big, overflowing buckets of dollars to help us get those two beautiful girls home.
Thank you for taking a minute of your time out to read our story and for blessing us with your donation.
In His Name,
Danny, Tabitha our FIVE precious children

Our First and Second Responsibilties ~

Our First Responsibility is to be happy, our second is to make others happy. Seems simple enough and a wonderful thought to live by. I was touched by this video and wanted to share. Something so simple yet so hard probably for most people to do, give back to others. Accept change and just do it! Giving back to others is one of my most important life works, my profession as a nurse I guess has lead me to think like this. I teach my children the same thing (when they listen) in hopes that a legacy of doing and caring about others will remain for generations to come.

30 gifts to 30 strangers : how sweet this was to do, celebrate your birthday by making others happy! Do you think we can do this when I am 50? hmmm 50 gifts :)


Enjoy!!


Thank you and big hugs to Lucas for posting on You Tube for people like me to enjoy, made me smile  :)
