4th of July Party Ideas ~ Celebrate the 4th of July in style by adorning your home (indoors and out) with all things red, white, and blue.

 Grilling and fireworks are a given, but it's all the little extras that make it special.From easy DIY crafts to delicious recipes, bring this classic color trio to your celebration! Try a themed dinner party with an over-the-top display or simply update a sofa with patriotic-inspired pillows, like stars and stripes. Check out these tips below and get full instructions for some DIY projects!

*********************************************************************

Begin decorating by scouring your house for red, white, and blue items. Don't be picky on the shades of color because a little variation in hues will make your decor more dynamic.​ For a picture-perfect table, include these foolproof accessories: bottled soda, striped party straws, fresh flowers, and a flag, of course!

Summer is berry season, and you cannot get enough of these sweet fruits. With a little time, this recipe is easy to whip up, is a guilt-free treat but does require a few extra steps to achieve the fun layered look. And these popsicles will be delicious even if they don't turn out with symmetrical lines. Ingredients: 2 cups berries, red * 2 cups berries, blue * 1 1/2 cup milk * 4 tablespoon honey * 1 1/2 cup ice cubes
We used a mix of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries but feel free to use various combinations of these four berries or your own variety. A simple alternative is two cups of strawberries and two cups of blueberries. You will also need: Large bowls * Blender * ​Colander * Popsicle sticks * Popsicle mold or mason jars * Makes 10-12 popsicles (depending on the size of your mold)
Step 1: Rinse the red berries. Hull the strawberries, and discard the greens. In the blender, mix all red berries, 1/4 cup milk, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1/2 cup ice. Pour red mixture a third of the way full in popsicle molds or mason jars. Immediately place in the freezer. Depending on how many molds you have, this may take a few rounds of filling and freezing. Refrigerate any extra mixture in a large bowl. Step 2: Wash the blender, and wait 30 minutes while the red mixture is freezing. Then, prepare the white mixture. Add 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup ice, and 2 tablespoon honey to the blender and mix. Remove the popsicle molds from the freezer and check to see if red mixture is almost frozen. As long as it is slushy, you can slowly pour the white mixture in each mold. Fill to two-thirds of the way full. Insert popsicle sticks through the white mixture down into the red mixture. Once again, immediately place in the freezer. Refrigerate any extra mixture in a large bowl. ​ Step 3: After white mixture has been in the freezer for about 30 minutes, prepare blue mixture. Rinse blackberries and blueberries, then add to the blender with 1/4 cup milk, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1/2 cup ice. Blend until mixed. Remove popsicle molds from the freezer, and slowly pour blue mixture into the remainder of the mold. Immediately place in the freezer, and let freeze completely (about 4 hours). Repeat steps with additional mixture for more popsicles. When it is time to serve popsicles, remove molds from freezer and let sit for two to three minutes before removing popsicles from the mold.

Matilda Jane June Promo is ......

July 4th Craft Ideas ~ Inspired by turn-of-the-century celebrations, these seven joyful tributes to red, white, and blue harken to a time when impromptu hats were folded from leftover newspapers, and marching bands, firecrackers, and lawn games marked the day.


Rosette Banner
Adapt the rosettes for this banner to any size.Step 1: From blue crepe paper, cut a strip 8 inches wide and 20 inches long.Step 2: From a clean newspaper, cut a narrower strip of paper. Lay it down in the center of the blue strip, gluing in place. Repeat, cutting an even narrower strip of red crepe paper, then gluing in place.Step 3: Fan-fold across the narrow width of the strip. Fold in half lengthwise.Step 4: Open out on either side of the center fold you just made to create a circle; glue. Print "Happy Fourth"; cut out around the letters in a circle with pinking shears. Glue onto rosettes.Step 5: Cut 8-inch pipe cleaners in half. Use one to form a loop; slip through another to form another loop, and so on. When chain is complete, glue a pipe cleaner loop to the back of each rosette, first passing it through a chain loop, then gluing in place.

Red, White, and Blue Outdoor Decor ~ Check out all sorts of ways to show your pride with pretty red, white, and blue decorations this Summer Holiday season!

Because true blue is so difficult to find in nature, search for containers that fill the role. This enameled metal tub in blue and white is a perfect foil for red annuals such as geraniums or petunias. Be sure to drill holes in the bottom of the tub to allow drainage and prevent the window box from becoming too heavy.

Table decorations in red, white, and blue make a fabulous seasonal celebration. Ground each place setting with blue denim place mats, strips of striped ribbon, and bandana napkins. Top stacked blue and white plates with enameled red buckets lined with map-printed paper, and fill with soft rolls or baguettes. A jaunty red-and-white rabbit weathervane makes a charming folk art centerpiece when flanked with white lilies in blue sap buckets. String pierced paper lanterns on a multisocket lantern cord, and suspend from the porch ceiling with cup hooks.

Serve a simple snack or dessert at your gathering that fits in with your red, white, and blue theme. "Simple helpings of fresh-picked red raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries work just as well as a snack for the kids as they do for an elegant dessert with friends," Yoest says. Serve them in cones made of rolled parchment with whipped cream on ice for dipping.

Use the Gift

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” Joshua 1:8

Have you ever received a gift card that you stored in a special place for so long that you forgot you had it? Most of them have an expiration date, and if you don’t use it, you will surely lose it! The same is true with the Word of God. The Word doesn’t ever expire, but we have to take action and use His Word in order to receive His promises. Just like you exchange your gift card for the things you need at the store, His Word gives you the power to receive every promise He has for you.

The above verse tells us, when we declare His Word and keep our heart and mind open to Him, we are using the gift. We are opening the door for Him to move in our life. For example, if you’re facing lack in any area, receive the gift of provision by declaring...my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). If there’s a mountain in your way, receive the gift of victory that says, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). Use the gift He’s given you and make His Word a priority ~ don’t let it depart from your mouth. As you do, He’ll make your way prosperous, and you’ll enjoy the abundant life He has for you!

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word which is truth to set me free. I determine in my heart to set Your Word into motion in my life. Keep me close to You so that I can please You in everything I do. In Jesus’ Name Amen.

Do you overthink everything?

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6

Have you ever said "I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with my life? What if I never find it? Will I always be unhappy and unfulfilled? Will I never achieve my purpose?" "I ask God so why doesn’t He answer my prayers for direction?" "Maybe I’m just too sinful or something. I know I should read the Bible more. Am I I’m in some kind of punishment for that? Am I really so much worse than everybody else?" "I just don’t have any special gifts or talents." "I just don't know what I’m supposed to do …"

Does this resemble your thinking sometimes? Perhaps not about your career, but about finding a spouse, or affording a house, or exercising regularly, or a conflict with your mother or boss. Do you tend to overthink things? To worry and endlessly, passively, excessively ponder the meanings, causes and potential consequences of your problems? Do you dwell on them?

Some people believe that when we feel down about something we should try to evaluate our situation from every angle to gain insight and find solutions. However, research has shown that dwelling on thoughts like this creates negative outcomes: it sustains or worsens sadness, fosters negative thinking, depletes motivation, saps energy, interferes with concentration, and typically impairs our problem-solving.

“You need to free yourself from the clutch of your ruminations – in other words, immediately stop overthinking.”

Based on what Paul wrote in Philippians 4:6, he gives 3 clear instructions for those of us who meditate on our problems. He says:
1) do not worry about anything
2) pray about everything
3) thank God for everything

What if we took this instruction to heart and put it into practice? What if we decided not to worry about anything? What if when we found ourselves worrying, we stopped and handed the situation over to God in prayer? What if we then thanked Him for taking care of the issue? In fact, what if we spent most of our mental free-time today thinking about what good care our awesome God takes of us? What if we counted our blessings and God’s acts of faithfulness today and again tomorrow and next week too? What would happen then?

Paul says in verse seven, we will begin to experience amazing peace, a kind of peace we can’t even imagine. Peace that makes no earthly sense! This kind of peace is so powerful that it has a protective function on our hearts and minds, which only makes it easier for us to stop worrying and be thankful. That sounds like a state of happiness to me! So let’s not over-think it and let’s not under-pray it either. Let’s actively choose to have a happy, thankful day and get up tomorrow and do it again!

Dear Lord, I’m turning over all my fears and problems to You to handle today. I can’t fix a single thing by worrying about it – but You can fix anything because nothing is impossible for You! Thanks for being in charge of my day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Spring is in the Air ...Well, maybe if you don't live in the Midwest ~ it's still FREEZING here! Anyhoo, check out these AWESOME porch ideas, you might decide you need to try out something new on our own porch!

In the South, deep porches with lofty ceilings provide cooling shade to the home. With their screened enclosures, they also serve as outdoor rooms — like this one in Charleston, S.C., fitted with cushioned rockers and even a coffee table with a potted orchid. The ceiling is painted in traditional Haint Blue, a shade thought to repel wasps (or, for the superstitious, "haints"—ghosts or lost spirits).

Looking for days when we had slower lifestyles? Check out this porch that looks like it could harken back to the days before cell phones and internet! It has all the right pieces ~ an Original Charleston Bed Swing lined with comfy pillows, retro 1950s metal patio chairs, a chevron-patterned indoor-outdoor rug and lime-green garden seats. Take me back!!!

In this cottage, the old-style shutters can be opened and closed for privacy and shelter from the weather. Imagine settling down on the cushy porch swing for an afternoon nap with the ceiling fan to keep you cool. Heaven!
