Bart Fire Christmas Bazaar and Jubilee

 Saturday was so much fun!
I did my annual craft show at Bart Fire Company.

I love seeing the familiar and friendly faces.
I struggled with envy as the lady across the way
sold greens by the boatload. 
She had done the same last year and I had
totally forgotten.

It was fun to get reactions to some new 
baby shower items.
The sugar shakers as candles.
They are cute and so much fun.
Everyone who checked them out
really liked them.


These kept being mistaken for soap.
Oops!


Making more and more tart melters all of the time.

 It was so much fun to display them in this little case.

 This is available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
$32.00 plus shipping.
 The candle is Candy Cane scented.

Here we go again...
roses that are wax, not soap.
These blueberry muffin tarts 
smell sooooo good and look very 
sweet in this vintage type tin.
 

It was a very full day.....
Saturday evening found Warren, Mom, Georgia and I 
at a concert by three amazing groups.
Greater Vision, Legacy Five and The Booth Brothers.
So much fun and entertainment
but with an excellent message.
 


 The theme of the evening was being faithful.
Wherever God has placed us.
If He calls us to the stage or television
to be faithful there.
If He calls us to be homemakers with a houseful
of young ones, 
If He asks us to work full time at 
a secular job...
or even as a stubborn candle maker.
To serve Him faithfully in all things.


A memory was shared of a man,
one of whom we can probably all relate.
He was the candy man at the church.
Every week he would 
fish those pieces of candy out of his 
deep pockets with a little phrase
about how much Jesus loved
the children who were the very happy 
recipients of these goodies.
 
 The life of Gerald Wolf was impacted by this man.
The message went deeply into his heart.

No one would have thought too much of the importance
of a simple man in bib overalls who handed 
out mints each week at church.

However, 
he was faithful.
And it mattered.

May God help me to be faithful.
Every day.
