365.247: Spring Wreath

I love a cool wreath on the front door.
Not your grandma's wreath.
Right now I have this wreath, made completely of shaved pieces of wood rolled up to look like flowers. Which I love.

But now I am thinking of something a little brighter and happier for spring.
Just look at this amazing fabric wreath I found on Alisa Burke's blog. (No, I don't know her--but her blog is so inspiring!) Get the tutorial here.

365.246: Ask Anything

In the book of John, Jesus is talking to Philip and says:

"I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!"

Uhhh...WHAT?!?! I mean, first off believers will do greater works than Jesus did? But Jesus healed like almost every single sick person he encountered. And he raised. the. dead.
Beyond that, I can ask for anything in Jesus' name and He will do it?!

What if we really believed the Bible is true? What if we conducted our lives out of the belief that what Jesus said is true? Man, we could make the hurting people in this world so happy!
