Sneak Peek.....

   The  French Market  Is coming to Horton's Emporium (hardware/gift shop/ greenhouse)  Aren't these big angel wings a good start?
  I noticed many tiered items. Tarnished silver is so in. I just can't let mine get like that though.
  A big group of rabbits...could be left-over from Easter. But then they seem to be a new thing for collectors.
  Tiered cake holder with a huge candle.  I like how it is sitting on an old plate.
  These  little bird houses hanging around are made from old paperback books. So cute !  I love the chalk paint color of this dresser. There were faux boxwood wreaths  and apothecary jars.
 The mirror hanging here is in the bottom of an old wash tub. Strawberry scented soaps and lavender.
 This is the postcard announcing the French Market. The store was not officially set up. So I just took a few photos. I did see a dear friend there. Debbie was meeting up with her sister. I'd like to do a blog on Debbie, she's a very good gardener of flowers.  A sweetheart too. She needs to start her own blog, I am sure.
  Hope you have enjoyed this peek into the market being readied.  Wishing all of you a great day. XO



    Calvinists believe that God predestined each individual whom would receive salvation before the world was created. Is that a clear understanding of Scripture? No, it is not.

    Ephesians 1:1-5 ....4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,(NKJV)

    Whom did God choose to be adopted as sons? He chose those who would believed and obeyed the gospel.

    Ephesians 1:13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, (NKJV)

    Who were those who were sealed with the Holy Spirit of of promise?
    1. Those who trusted in Jesus were sealed.
    2. Those who heard the word of truth, the gospel, were sealed.
    3. Those who believed were sealed.

    They were not predetermined to trust, hear the truth and believed. They had free-will to meet the terms for pardon.

    Not one person was saved by grace alone. No one was saved before they believed Jesus was the Son of God. No one was saved before they were immersed in water for the forgiveness of their sins. No one was saved before they confessed Jesus as Lord and Christ. No one was saved before they believed that God resurrected Jesus from the grave. No one was saved before they repented. [John 3:16, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, Acts 3:19, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 10:9]

    If some men have been individually predetermined for salvation and all other preordained to spend eternity in hell, then why preach the gospel?

    Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.(NKJV)

    Calvinists say faith comes by hearing only if you have been predetermined for salvation.

    Romans 10:13 For "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."(NKJV)

    Calvinists say God individually predetermined who would be allowed to call on the Lord and be saved.

    Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.(NKJV)

    Calvinists say the gospel is only for those whom God has individually chosen for salvation.

    Calvinists believe God forces His chosen to have faith and believe the gospel. They believe God individually selected most men to not believe in Jesus and to burn in hell.

    In effect Calvinist believe God preordained most men to become atheists.

    The burning question is why do Calvinists preach the gospel if men are saved by grace alone.

    God predestined that Christians would have redemption through the blood of Christ. God did not predestined which individuals would become Christians.

    Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption, through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. (NKJV)
