|Introduction||I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ first and foremost, a keeper at home wife and a writer. This blog is an extension of my web site "The Home Maker's Corner". The topics here will be pretty widely varied - recipes and household helps, Bible studies, health, humor, photography, poetry, Christian issues, and other random items. I hope you find something useful to you. :-)
Psalm 103:1 Bless the LORD , O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; 4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; 5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

If mud is dirt plus water, what is clay?
"A stiff, sticky fine-grained earth...often forming an impermeable layer in the soil. It can be molded when wet, and is dried and baked to make bricks, pottery, and ceramics." Psalms 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
