Letter from Jesus about Christmas --




It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season.

How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of your own. I don't care what you call the day. If you want to celebrate My birth, just GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

Now, having said that let Me go on. If it bothers you that the town in which you live doesn't allow a scene depicting My birth, then just get rid of a couple of Santas and snowmen and put in a small Nativity scene on your own front lawn If all My followers did that there wouldn't be any need for such a scene on the town square because there would be many of them all around town.

Stop worrying about the fact that people are calling the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas tree. It was I who made all trees. You can remember Me anytime you see any tree. Decorate a grape vine if you wish: I actually spoke of that one in a teaching, explaining who I am in relation to you and what each of our tasks were. If you have forgotten that one, look up John 15: 1 - 8.

If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of My birth here is my wish list. Choose something from it:

1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way My birthday is being celebrated, write letters of love and hope to soldiers away from home. They are terribly afraid and lonely this time of year. I know, they tell Me all the time.

2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have to know them personally. They just need to know that someone cares about them.

3. Instead of writing the President complaining about the wording on the cards his staff sent out this year, why don't you write and tell him that you'll be praying for him and his family this year. Then follow up... It will be nice hearing from you again.

4. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you can't afford and they don't need, spend time with them. Tell them the story of My birth, and why I came to live with you down here. Hold them in your arms and remind them that I love them.

5 Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and forgive him or her.

6. Did you know that someone in your town will attempt to take their own life this season because they feel so alone and hopeless? Since you don't know who that person is, try giving everyone you meet a warm smile; it could make the difference.

7. Instead of nit picking about what the retailer in your town calls the holiday, be patient with the people who work there. Give them a warm smile and a kind word. Even if they aren't allowed to wish you a "Merry Christmas" that doesn't keep you from wishing them one. Then stop shopping there on Sunday. If the store didn't make so much money on that day they'd close and let their employees spend the day at home with their families

8. If you really want to make a difference, support a missionary-- especially one who takes My love and Good News to those who have never heard My name.

9. Here's a good one. There are individuals and whole families in your town who not only will have no "Christmas" tree, but neither will they have any presents to give or receive. If you don't know them, buy some food and a few gifts and give them to the Salvation Army or some other charity which believes in Me and they will make the delivery for you.

10. Finally, if you want to make a statement about your belief in and loyalty to Me, then behave like a Christian. Don't do things in secret that you wouldn't do in My presence. Let people know by your actions that you are one of mine.

Don't forget; I am God and can take care of Myself. Just love Me and do what I have told you to do. I'll take care of all the rest. Check out the list above and get to work; time is short. I'll help you, but the ball is now in your court. And do have a most blessed Christmas with all those whom you love and remember :

I LOVE YOU,
JESUS

IN MEMORY OF OUR BELOVED CAT LEO



On Sept the 5th at 5:30pm MST I had to put my beloved cat " Leo to sleep ...he was also called " Pasha" for persian king. That morning he just did not seem himself,he kept puking everything up that he was trying to eat and just started to keep falling on his side. So we decided that we would take him to the vet to have him checked out. My daughter and I and Leo went on this long car ride to the vet. The whole time we tried to calm Leo by gently talking to him....knowing very well how much he hated to be in a moving car.

At the doctors we had him examined and x-rayed. The doctor could not see anything, so we agreed that Leo be given barium which would show up white on the x-ray all through his intestines...or so we thought. The doctor looked puzzled when she came out of the x-ray room and motioned us to follow her to the x-ray room where she pointed to Leo's x-ray. The barium was surely brightly visible, but did not went much further than his stomach. In fact nothing was going past that point where the barium had abruptly stopped moving.

The diagnosis was as you might have already guessed it yourself....an obstruction that prevented any food to pass by.

We also noticed that his heart was blown up like a balloon, and all intestines where on one side. Leo was born with a heart murmur ( hole in his heart ) therefore he was not a candidate for surgery of this magnitude, because we did not know what to expect. So we decided that we would take another set of x-rays to see if any barium went passed that point. The second x-ray showed no change......so we waited and prayed and hoped...cryed and payed some more.

It was now getting time for the doctors to go home...and we had a descision to make....because if we would leave Leo there he would have not been supervised...it was Saturday after all. After discussing it back and forth we decided to take the costly way....to bring Leo down to the pet emergency care center where he would have 24 hour care.

So I payed the $305.00 doctorbill for him and charged it on my credit card....and went to the emergency care center with Leo. There he was examined again...and oviously he was squeeling in pain when the doctor touched a certain point on his stomach. Leo was now prgressivly getting worth by the hour.......and around 4pm the doctor came in nad told me the unavoidable...that there is really nothing they could do and that Leo would most likely not survive the night.

After trying to call my husbands cellphone for several times he finally picked up and I told him everything we have been through, and that he should prepare the kids that Leo would not be comming home. So He came and we spend another hour just bbeing with our beloved Leo......and then the doctor cmae back in and ask us if we had made a descision about Leo and at 5:30pm I held him in my arm when he died.

I am crying now as I am writing this and reflect on whats happend. When he was dead...I did not know how much that would hurt in my heart, because I loved him so much. Not for once had that thought crossed my mind that he would have to die that day.
I wanted to share my feelings with all you animal lovers out there, who might have lost a beloved pet as well.

BEADED JEWELS BRIDAL JEWELRY TIPS

Written by:
Lexi Butler Jewelry Designer / Maker owner of Beaded Jewels
On your Wedding Day you simply want to look stunning!

Beaded Jewels would like to offer brides to be some helpful tips when it comes to selecting the right kind of beaded jewelry for the bride and her bridesmaids.
Start by selecting your bridesmaids dress color. Take your Matron of Honor with you to help you make a decision. This will help you decide as far as what will work for all of the girls and she can also try some of them on.


Also take into consideration the style and cut of your wedding dress. A sleeveless dress can support a different shape necklace and allow for more space on your chest for jewelry. A halter-cut dress may be better for a simple, single strand necklace, or you may want to leave out the necklace all together and focus on a lovely set of earrings and a bracelet instead. An off shoulder wedding gown looks great with an extravagant necklace that fans out onto the chest.



When selecting wedding day jewelry, the sky is the limit as far as color choices, stones, shapes and design styles. Also keep in mind to integrate the bridesmaids dress colours into your jewelry. This will cause a visual harmony between the bride and bridesmaids.

A beautiful addition to a necklace earring and bracelet can be a hair barrette or comb with Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls. Beaded Jewels custom designs both.



Earrings have to be complemented with the neckline of the dress as well. Dangling or drop earrings look fabulous on plunging necklines, while studs are more suitable for high necklines. The individuality of each bridesmaid is to be considered.

A delicate wrist is greatly accentuated with a beautiful bracelet. They make all dress styles look great. If you are planning to make your bridesmaids wear long, gloves, then a single row Swarovski crystal bracelet can be an option. Freshwater pearl bracelets look great on a bare wrist.

Bridesmaids' jewelry will make great gifts of appreciation from the bride to her bridesmaids. It is a great idea for the bride to express gratitude for their contribution, on the most wonderful day of her life.

Another beautiful accessory to consider are Beaded Jewels one of a kind voluminous beaded woven rings with Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls.

Beaded Jewels offers a variety of wedding jewelry online, but I also would like to point out that I work with you on a one on one basis by designing the jewelry piece or pieces you desire for your wedding day. I am original Artist, journeyman by trade in goldsmith and design with a passion for uniqueness in handcrafting beaded, woven and wire-wrapped jewelry. I am up to date in all this years colours and only work with the finest materials like austrian swarovski crystals, sterling silver, freshwater pearls, semi precious gem stones. I take great pride in presenting handcrafted, high quality, sophisticated pieces at very reasonable price.
Only the best for your Wedding Day!

BEEING A WAHM ( WORK AT HOME MOM )

That is a post for all the WAHMS out there
Well I think its pretty need less to say that I get up bright and early in the morning. I am not complaining.....I like it. Thats when my mind is the freshest very early in the morning when its still quiete enough for my designer mind to get to work. There is no pressure.....but a hot steaming fresh cup of coffee, a piece of paper and a pen. Yes, I work in my PJ's......you can do that when you work at home especially when everyone is still asleep. By the time I have to wake up my children, for them to get ready for school and my hubby for work I have already worked two hours and I am ready for a small break....breakfast with my teens. I get to push them out the door so they won't miss the bus . I kiss hubby good bye and off to works he goes.

Now it's just me and the cats......which are now longingly looking at me to have there little " run behind the string" game.

Than comes the part I don't like.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh cleaning. I try to get this all done before 9 am. Then I sit down with another cup of hot steaming coffee and figure out whats for dinner.

Yeap I know its still early, but it works for me....and you got to do what ever works for you. So then, I check the food and snack supply. Teens are always hungry. Thank God for Costco........ and all the ready to heat and eat big packages of food....lol supply.

BTW I am still in my PJ's....lol
No I am not one of the moms that go shopping in PJ's....my german herritage won't allow that......but I have been seen going to the mail box in it.....lol.

Anyway.....ahhhhhhhh it's time to check emails and chatting on Yahoo seeing whats going on in the chats at the EXPO my favorite chatroom http://expo-connector.com/chat.htm I put that link there just in case you feel like chatting with me or other moms or dads.

As you see now there is not a boring minute in my day. I am an entrepreneur who does it all. I am the webmaster of my website, photograph of all the jewelry I design and handcraft, I am the bookeeper.......ahhhh hate this part, custom service, secretary,

I am the boss of it all....thats why I am doing it...and because I love to work and have my own schedule. I see my hubby at lunch and greet my children when they come home exhausted from their day, I have a snack ready for them and time for them.

There is never any rush, because all orders are done before they get home.

After dinner ( with hubby and kids ) and homework I go back to work until sometimes late at night.
I do what I love and love what I do and would not change a thing.

I am a true WAHM.

MY FRIEND NEEDS HELP.....PLEASE READ

Here is an email I sent to 27News
joecheray: I need your help in finding out why the state of Kansas is not being
forth coming in letting recipients of the family support grant check
know what is going on with money we were supposed to receive last
month. Checks are issued quarterly on the 15th of each respective
quarter starting in Jan, then April, July, and Oct. I have another
friend Maggie Belk who is on the same program and she has not received
her check either and when I spoke to my sons case manager Don
Richardson at TARC he said he has two others on his case in addition
to Anthony's that are also waiting on the same check. Also Anthony has
been on this waiting list for respite care for two years it seems and
they have never let me know when or how close he is to coming off of
it.

If anyone has any info you can post it here on my Blog.
Thank you for all your help

How Do You Get Yourself And Your Online Home Business Noted?

The internet is like a huge book and every business or company has its page. What does a closed book with a lot of pages mean to you ? To me its means lets open it see whats inside ? Where do I go from here? Thats where the brain work begins.

I learned that if you put yourself out there and make your self available to people that can relate to you, the homebased entrepreneur, you have a greater chance to meet people, talk with people, let them know what your doing, and even gain some customers.

Unless you open a book and read in it you will never know what its about. Thats how it also is with people. I found myself a wonderful group of people at Small Business Referral Netwrok Cooperative and Expo Connector is our online Event center. http://expo-connector.com/chat.htm If you have a homebased business, than you know how loneley you can feel sometimes.

Before I joined this wonderful group I had no idea that a network like this even existed. Sure you have heard of social networks, but often people spam you with their ads and that is always a turn off for me, because it only shows me, that people are not intersted in me and what I do but just want to sell me their stuff.

Sure we all want to sell our stuff, but there is a nicer way to go about it. It's called networking. A bunch of people get together, get to know each other, support each other, learn from each other, teach to each other, trust each other, become friends with each other, present their business to each other, buy from each other, review each other, refer each other. There is a pattern in networking and it takes time and endurance, willpower and work to become part of a true Social network.

I have found it at http://expo-connector.com/chat.htm I have only joined that network in March and made lot's of friends and customers. If you still looking for friendship, support life lessons, prayer support look no further but come over for a visit and chat with us.

And learn a whole new way of doing business.

I always want to know if I could help someone, because I know how beeing alone can feel
So post your comments and let me know.

Beaded Jewels Latest Customer Comments

See what my latest customers have to say about the service and quality of my products and custom order designs

June 24th

Having to wear a medical bracelet is never easy and never "really nice looking" I mentioned my need to Lexi and she made me not only something functional, but something fashionable. The braclet I got is made of turquoise that is not only great, but not common. The colors are blues and greens and surrounded by silver beads. To say I love it is an understatement. Service was great and the delivery was quick.. Thanks Lexi, its wonderful!!

I love my toe ring that you made for me. It is very comfortable and looks so lovely! I look forward to wearing it as much as possible this summer. I really appreciate how quickly I received my order too. I also really like my hair barrette. I plan to dress my hair up with it tomorrow when I take my father to see a show. You are very talented and you do beautiful work!

Lexi custom made a ring for me, in my choice of colored Swarovski Crystal! She made sure she had my order correct by double-checking with me! The ring arrived very quickly, and was much finer than the photo on the website!
Not only is the Swarovski Crystal stunning, that is quite a "rock"! You would think (by looking at it) that I had paid over $100.00 for it! Great customer service & very quick shipping! OH! And I received 3 beautiful, heavy fabric, zipper-close pouches
in assorted sizes! One is the perfect size for storing the ring in! I use the others
in my purse!

I recently had a custom order done by Lexi of Beaded Jewels. I am very impressed with the quality of my ring & bracelet, and with how quickly my order was made & shipped. I appreciate Lexi working with me to make the bracelet exactly how I wanted it & for doing the ring in the size I needed. I love the pouch set also. They are perfect to store my jewelry in, with extra for change, etc. I highly recommend Lexi & her jewelry. She has done a great job! Thank you so much, Lexi.

What do you do when you are in the dump?

I believe when you are truely passionate about something and that can be absolutely anything, then there is a fire burning that is deep within you. My passion lies within designing jewelry and creating it and crafting it to be with my hands. When I am depressed about something in my life, then you will find me in my little shop, making jewelry. Often I just take a selection of beads out, lay them before me and look at them. Then after a while I play with them, move them around, start stringing and thats how some of my real exquisite pieces come to be. It's seem strange to a lot of people when I tell them that I am most creative when I am in the dump.

My dad always told me that no matter what happens in life true passion can never be deminished or suppressed through any circumstance in life. Passion is what you love doing most, wheather it is creating something with your hands like painting, sewing,
working with clay or beeing creative with your mind, writing of poems, music.....etc.

I would like to know how you feel about this......do you agree with me or do you disagre ? Go here and see what I created in one of my worst moments of depression and lonleyness http://www.beadedjewels.biz/swarovski_crystal_jewelry.html Expecially look at the item no # N-297 and B-331-2 ( click on pix to enlargen the view )
