Some Change is Good

You might have noticed some new additions to my blog. I've added several items which I think may be of interest and help to my readers.

1. Bible Search and Bible Study button. This is absolutely fantastic! Just enter a word you are looking for in the Bible and every verse with that word in it will appear. If you hit the Bible Study button, you will go to a page of Bible helps which include commentaries, concordances, dictionaries, and even tons of classic sermons!!! It's extremely easy to navigate.

2. Click on the Book Cover Art button and it will take you straight to Amazon.com.

3. Click on Make It From Scratch. It will take you to a fanastic site that offers inexpensive food and craft ideas.

4. Happy Housewife and Penny Pinching Mom offers information of numerous sales and deals around the country and such more. Take a look.

5. Scroll down to almost the end of this page for the wonderful C.H. Spurgeon's Morning and Evening Devotionals. It may take a little time (though not that much)--the devotional is well worth you time. I've already gotten a very special "message" from it this morning. You will not be disappointed.

***Let me know how you like the additions.



Don't forget to enter The Thankful Turkey Day Giveaway for a new pashmina (soft wool) shawl/scarf. Contest ends on Thanksgiving weekend.
1. Your blog MUST appear in my community of "Followers" in the right hand column where the pics are.
2. Once you have become a "Follower" I will enter your name into the drawing box, then each time you leave a comment, your name will go into the box again. But remember, your blog MUST appear in my community of "Followers."
3. If your name is drawn you will have 48 hours to send me your address. If I don't hear from you within that time, a second name will be drawn.

Love all the new editions, especially Maxine (one of my favs). I'll come back when I get a minute and check out some of the nifty resources.

Angie- Great. Glad you like them.

I like the new additions. I also have Amazon on my journal but never made a penny out of it. You are supposed to get commission if somebody buys and if they enter through your journal link. Oh well, I can live in hopes lol

Thanks for sharing all your new info! I look forward to checking them out!

Janna Qualman said...

They all sound like great places to visit! Thanks for bringing them to our attention.

I love them all! Thank you! I bookmarked the Bible one cause that looks like it works better than the one I use now.

Barbara!
This is the first time I've clicked through Google Reader to your blog in a while. What a surprise! The Serenity Gate is so pretty and full of interesting links!
I'm going to be dilly dallying over here for a while when I should be doing other things.

It's always nice to do a little remodeling. Love what you've got going on here, a little something for everyone!

I like the additions (although I only recently found your blog, so everything is still new to me.) The Amazon book cover is something I've never seen before. Quite nice!

Barbara said...

Jeannette- It's hard to make any money off the Amazon thingy, so I've let it go for the most part. Most people who read blogs are themselves bloggers and already have the button, so it's of little use to me.

So glad you like the additions!

Barbara said...

Donna- Thanks for looking at the new additions.

Barbara said...

Janna- Thanks!

Barbara said...

Terri- So glad they are of some help to you!!

Barbara said...

Marilyn- Welcome back and thank you for the compliment!!

Barbara said...

Joanne- Thank you.

Barbara said...

MLH- Thank you.
