So Will I,
Will You?
by Karla Maxwell

The Lord is amazing! EVERYWHERE we look we see the spoken Word of God. Not only has He created all things for our existence and pleasure, His creation also serves as a reminder of His greatness, mercy, and faithfulness. God is so Good! 
 
Every morning the sun rises, and every evening the sun sets. The moon is always present. The sun and moon remind us He is with us day and night. He will never leave us nor forsake us (Deut. 31:6).

He placed each star high in the heavens, and gave a name to each one (Psalm 147:4, Isaiah 40:26). The stars remind us to look up, to seek Him. If He knows each star by name, He surely knows us, and He longs for us to know Him.

The ground we walk on is our firm foundation, just as standing on the Word of God in our faith and trust in Him is our spiritual foundation. The earth has mountains and valleys, plains, bodies of water which can be turbulent or calm, and they are all beautiful to look at. They serve as a reminder of our mountaintop moments and lonely valleys, peaceful times and turbulent times we experience in life, and just as a landscape changes, so do our circumstances of life, and the Lord is always there to carry us through when we allow Him.

There are various types of clouds in the sky. Some clouds remind us of His covering and protection—beautiful clouds, some full of white fluffiness. Do you remember as a kid laying back in the grass, watching the clouds float by, and trying to find images in the clouds? Then there are dark, heavy clouds that hide the sun and the moon; clouds that bring storms. Just like the stars, clouds cause us to look up. Clouds come and go just as trials and tribulations come into our lives, but rest assured, the clouds do not last and the sun will shine again. The Son should always be allowed to shine.

We can see the goodness of the Lord when we see mother birds feeding their babies, or observe a flock of geese following the lead goose in formation to their next destination; a graceful butterfly quietly making its presence known with its beauty; a bee collecting pollen from a flower; or the flower as it blooms into its incredibly beautiful existence.

We are all more important to Him than the birds of the air, or the flowers that bloom. His Word says we are heirs of Him and fellow heirs with Christ, His children, redeemed, sanctified when we become doers of His Word.

Every day is a new opportunity to see His Glory and Majesty in action. Take time to enjoy His creation; worship and praise Him even in the storms of life. His promise, as seen in all He has created— He will never leave us nor forsake us. Can you think of other ways His creation serves as a reminder of His goodness and mercy? Heavenly Father, it is an honor and a privilege to worship, praise, and serve you. To You we give all the glory!

Make a Fruit Arrangement For Your Next Summer Party
from HGTV


What You'll Need:



Cut-out fruits can be made into a standing arrangement per the directions, or used as individual fruit pieces for a beautiful display on a platter.

Directions:

Make a Cantaloupe Bowl
Make sure you choose a ripe cantaloupe. A ripe cantaloupe is fragrant and has orange skin (as opposed to green). Cut the ends and score the center all the way around using a knife. Then, use a large sharp knife to cut zigzags all the way around, using the scored line to stay at the center. Make sure you cut all the way through. Gently pull apart to reveal two halves. Scoop out the seeds (Clean, salt and roast them if you like!), and fill the hollow center with colorful berries like blueberries.

Make a Watermelon Flower
Start by cutting a thick slice of watermelon. Use a metal cookie cutter to cut out a flower shape from the slice. Set aside. Next, insert green grapes onto a skewer for the flower stem. Insert the watermelon flower on top. For extra color, add a blueberry to the center of the flower by inserting it with a toothpick. Cut the excess toothpick. Repeat steps for every flower. Tip: Save the leftover watermelon for smoothies.

Make an Orange Sunshine
Cut thick slices from an orange. Use a small, sharp knife or fruit carving tool to cut zigzags out of the rind. Carefully insert onto a skewer. Repeat steps for every orange sunshine.

Make More Fruit Kabobs
Get creative! Make an assortment of watermelon flowers, orange sunshines and other fruit skewers.

Make a Kiwi Lily
Making kiwi lilies is similar to the cantaloupe bowl. Cut the ends and a zigzag all the way around the center of the kiwi using a small, sharp knife or carving tool. Gently pull the two halves apart. Score the edges at each zigzag using a small knife. Peel the skin with the same knife, and carefully pull the skin back so it resembles a lily. Repeat steps for every kiwi lily.

Make a Strawberry Rose
This is the easiest since strawberries already resemble blooming flowers. Cut thin slices about three-fourths down the strawberry (large strawberries work best). Layer the slices, and gently fan them out so they resemble rose petals. You can also slice them to resemble tulips by cutting only a few slices. Repeat steps for every rose.

Arrange Fruit
You'll want to assemble your tray wherever you'll display it at your party because it will be difficult to transport once filled. Start with a large sanitized tray or cutting board. Place the cantaloupe bowls first. We used an upside-down flower pot to elevate one. Insert the watermelon flowers, orange sunshines and other fruit skewers into the cantaloupe bowl. Lastly, fill the gaps on the tray with grapes, berries, strawberry roses, kiwi lilies and any other leftover fruit.

Promise Helpers is a non-profit Christian ministry for women that seeks to help women experience the fullness of God’s purpose and promises for them. Our desire is to bring women to a place of personal wholeness so they can bring wholeness to their marriages, homes, families and communities. Promise Helpers is women ministering to women, reminding one another of the promises of God and encouraging one another to implement those promises into their daily lives. The foundation of Promise Helpers is prayer, for apart from Jesus Christ we can do nothing.
