Made It! What A Hoot - Owl Messenger Bag

Around Christmas I made an Owl Purse for my sister. I liked it so much I decided to make one for myself, with a few variations of course...

I used the See & Sew Butterick pattern B5273. Following the same directions as I did for the Owl Purse, making the wings, tummy, eyes and beak. Then I followed the directions included with the pattern. Only one area was a bit difficult to figure out but I wanted to add a zipper instead of magnetic tabs so I skipped that part.

God Gave

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

God loved the world so much, that he gave… and He gave… and He gave.  God loves you so much that He desires to give to you.  God has made a promise to you – eternal life.  Jesus broken body and shed blood have become the eternal proof of God’s love for you.

One Good Choice!

… Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.  2 Corinthians 6:2

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done, the Bible says today is the day of salvation. 

A new life can be made with ONE good choice!  

When your spirit is reborn, the past doesn’t belong to you anymore.  You’re like a brand creation in God’s eyes.  Your life begins again, the day you make Jesus Lord of your life.  

There’s no need to wait any longer.  Ask Jesus to be your Lord – today is the day!

Magic Formula?

That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10 

Believe in your heart… Being saved is not just believing in your head but it is with your heart that you believe. 

The Bible also says “I believe and therefore I speak” 2 Corinthians 4:13. When you truly believe Jesus was raised from the dead in your heart, then your mouth will speak it out. 

This is not a magic formula… it is a true heart decision that will change your life for eternity.

It is the best decision you will ever make!

God Gave!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  John 3:16-17

God Loved and God Gave! 

God Gave His Son so that you can have a real relationship with Him. He did this because He first loved us…even when we did not deserve it or earn it. Your relationship with God can start today and last into eternity! 

It is the best relationship you will ever have!
