Separate sites

Just a little update on my make something 365 project.

I'll be creating two new separate blogs for the Santa project and the photography project so that I will not be getting them all confused with each other.

It's mostly because the photography project will have loads of images on a single day and it can then get kinda messy as I might use similar images if the themes match.

I'm just going to keep the Star of David project in my original blog as it is a craft blog and already fine for that idea.

Check back later for the new web addresses that I'll post here.

New Job, New Shop

I have a new shop on and I have to admit I love it.  My mum and my great uncle are contributing to it as well so I not only have crochet and craft items, but also knit items, jewellery, digital work and irish blackthorn walking sticks.

It is really good and it gets our items out into the public view.

I have to admit though I just started a new job a few months ago and keeping up with it all is kinda hard, but I have am on top of things at the moment.

You may previously remember me mentioning that I used to work for Creative Ideas, but I have since changed to office work and now am residing in a brilliant little ice cream shop closer to home.  It's called Dolce & Gelato and the owner has a couple of other businesses as well.  It's a great place and the girls and guy (better not forget Jack) or really friendly.  I have only been working there for a couple of weeks, but already I feel like it's been a few years.  There are still a few things I have to get my head around though as this is the first time I have worked in an office, but as I have done most of the work for my own life and also have studied ICT it I can quickly get the hang of it.

They also sell hot food and sandwiches to take away or sit in and there is a lovely courtyard out the back where you can sit under a large umbrella and have of little fun with friends and family.

I'll get an etsy mini on the side of the screen sometime soon so keep an eye out for that and then you can also have a look at the items I have for sale.  In the meantime here is a link to my shop homepage.

A Messianic Poem

Whilst looking for a Star of David to wear for a necklace I was on an Israeli site and I saw a symbol which I had never seen before. It is called the messianic seal. Now I love the star of David and I am getting one of them as well as this seal, but the new symbol was even more symbolic of my faith.

It was a menorah and a fish and the bottom of the menorah and the tail of the fish intertwined to become the star of David. Well I just loved that because it shows that the heritage of a believer doesn't just start with Jesus life on earth but that Jesus was there in the beginning and through the time of Moses getting the Ten Commandments and the Tabernacle in the wilderness. Then unto King David which God ordained and then to Jesus death and triumphant resurrection over death. All the while showing that God was in control of everything.

On reflection of this I decided to write a poem about it. So here it is.

The Messianic Seal

I was learning about dear Israel,
And a seal which they had found,
Painted on a darkened wall,
In a cave beneath the ground.

It was written in a golden hue,
With three distinctive parts,
And as I continued reading I found,
It was something dear to my heart.

The top was a menorah,
An age old Hebrew sign,
And it symbolised the tabernacle,
During Moses' time.

The middle sign was intertwined,
Between the first and last,
Making the star of King David's shield,
From battles in the past.

The last bit was a little fish ,
And the best part, that I knew,
For it showed the love of God's Son,
Who died to save me and you.

And all these represented,
A lineage of belief,
In Jesus the Messiah who,
From your sin gives you relief.

New year, new start

Ok so it's a new year and since I never did much on the blog last year it'll be a new start and I really want to put a lot more on the blog from now on.

To start with I wrote a poem and I want to share it with you all. It's about my faith.

I pledge allegiance to the Lord
The saviour enthroned on high
My rock, my shield, my guiding light
He is my battle cry.

He loves me like a newborn babe,
So helpless and so weak
And gives me strength to carry on,
Each day until we meet.

So I will follow Christ my Lord,
And worship Him on high
I'll tell about His wondrous love
And His mansion in the sky.

I'll tell of all the things He did
The miracles so grand,
And all the parables He told
Whilst in the promised land

I'll tell of everywhere He went,
So many years before
And think of how they've changed today
Along that distant shore.

I'll tell of how He died
At the hands of the unjust
And all this was for me
If only I should trust.

I'll tell of how He rose again
On that glorious third day
And how He conquered death for all
Who follow in His way

So I pledge allegiance to the Lord
And tell what He did for me
For I have been completely change
And from my sin set free.

I like writing poetry whenever it comes to mind so I'll be putting more online from now on.
