One cold night last week, I got home from work and wanted a cup of coffee to warm me up. Since the coffee had already been set up for the next day in the coffee pot, I decided to get out our new French press and give it a try. The first time I made it way too weak but the second time it was much better. I still like my coffee from the pot but this was good for a quick cup. Have you ever tried to make coffee with a French press?
The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord,
She is His new creation by water and the Word.
From heaven He came and sought her to be His holy bride;
With His own blood He bought her and for her life He died.
Elect from every nation, yet one o’er all the earth;
Her charter of salvation, one Lord, one faith, one birth;
One holy Name she blesses, partakes one holy food,
And to one hope she presses, with every grace endued.
’Mid toil and tribulation, and tumult of her war,
She waits the consummation of peace forevermore;
Till, with the vision glorious, her longing eyes are blest,
And the great Church victorious shall be the Church at rest.
Yet she on earth hath union with God the Three in One,
And mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won,
O happy ones and holy! Lord, give us grace that we,
Like them the meek and lowly, on high may dwell with Thee.
“No one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ.”
Last year, Kristin and I had so much fun with the Sisters Book Challenge! I read nine of the ten books on the list Kristin gave me and I have the tenth book on my personal list to read in 2014.
This year we decided to do it again since it was a great success.
It was hard coming up with ten books last year that Kristin hadn't read and it was maybe a little bit harder this year. But we both came up with a list of ten without too much emailing back and forth. :)
I have been wanting to change this space of mine for a while now. I liked envelope header and my pale blue background but I was ready for something new.
I love the look of a blog with a white background. It feels so fresh and I find it easier to work with.
Even though the envelope said me, I didn't like that it didn't go all the way across the top. So instead of creating a whole new longer envelope, I went with a slightly different look with a pile of letters, stamps, and envelopes.

Because I changed my background to white, my old button blended in too much so I started from scratch to come up with this.
While I was on a roll I changed my favicon to a "K" instead of a dandelion you could hardly see.
