Infinite:  immeasurably or inconceivably great or extensive.

God's love for us is definitely infinite. I can only pray that each and every individual knows this personally. The infinite love, grace and wisdom that God has is so amazing that it can bring a person to their knees and should on a daily basis. When praying for guidance, I have been answered many times that I should spend more time reading His Word. I have been doing much better. Each time I pick the Bible I truly feel better. That is God's Love. Pray that I continue on this amazing journey to learn to live the life He wishes.

One simply word that describes this product. 

I had seen this product all over the internet. Blogs and giveaways. Advertisements. I decided that I had to try it and see if it was really all is was made out to be. It is. Simply put.


When I first got the box I was nervous. It seemed complicated. I don't do complicated. 

For the purpose of the review, Sodastream was kind enough to send me many flavors to try. My favorite that I was really looking forward to was the Zero Cola. I personally drink Coke Zero . Sonic is the only restaurant that actually serves it so you can imagine how often I go there. .... Sorry I digress....as usual. 

I took everything out of the box and put it on the counter. Still thinking complicated. But I didn't want to get myself upset without good reason. So I decided to pick up the instructions, since I am a woman, and see what they had to tell me. 

It actually turned out to be very easy! I was super pumped about that! Put it together and started using it in less than 10 minutes.  How much easier can you get than that? I filled up the bottle with water from my refrigerator to make sure it was cold enough. I didn't have the patience to fill it up from the tap and wait for it to get cold. Kinda like that. I have three boys...they take all the patience I can muster. 

Anyway, put the bottle on the and pushed the button. That was it. Then took the bottle of Zero Cola, poured in the right amount and mixed away. Slowly mind you as I didn't want to wear it. It tasted great!

Couldn't wait for the boys to get home from school to give it a try! They had been waiting to try it too but I wouldn't let them before me. As soon as we got home they asked to have some 'water soda'. Everyone got to pick the flavor they wanted to try first. I had one choose root beer, one went for cola and another for zero cola. They each did it themselves and were really happy with it! Even my youngest, age 9, was able to make his own.  He was pretty proud of himself. So here we have 4 out of 5.  Now to wait for number 5 to get home. 

Hubby came home and we, of course, had to make him some lemon lime for him. His favorite! He agreed to that it was really good and definitely a great idea! Pop that taste good and that is less expensive than regular pop. 

I also couldn't wait to try the water enhancers. You carbonate the water and then add orange, lemon lime or raspberry. Just a hint of flavor to your water with bubbles! Love it!

So you have it ~ Top vote on flavor and ease of use by all five of us.  

We have used almost all of the carbonation and tons of different flavors. So then you have the situation of trying to find more. The first thing I did was register my product online. After the very simple registration product, I used their Dealer location map. Type in a zip code, it comes up with several different locations to purchase their products and it even told you if that particular location offered carbonation bottles.  Living where we do, kinda out in the middle of no where, we will have to drive a short distance to get new ones but  it will definitely be worth it. 

One last thing that I definitely have to mention.  Sodastream is very environmentally friendly. Why? Easy. How many plastic pop bottles are you saving by using this refillable one instead of buying new ones ;)

Be sure to click on the picture and let Sodastream tell you themselves!!

H .........Heaven and helpful

Today during Bible Study we talked about some things that as Christians we are suppose to do.Aka Helpful. We are to help others come to know the love and grace of God. To understand what a sacrifice Jesus made for everyone.  The ultimate sacrifice for not one single individual but an entire species. Part of being helpful means showing compassion, love and concern for all. Not just for those that make it convenient.  

I say Heaven because that is our Promise by God. God isn't a liar. God doesn't go back on his word. God is good. God is just. God is peace, love and understanding.

2 Peter 1:4
And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
Proverbs 1:33
But all who listen to me will live in peace,
untroubled by fear of harm.”
John 14:27
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
The promises of God are powerful and awesome to grasp. I pray that these scriptures about God’s promises were helpful to you today.

Kid's Dyno Wear Giveaway!

Winter is poking its nose out of hiding. Weather is getting nippier. Warm clothes are slowly resurrecting from the back of our closets. With winter on its way, we all know how our little ones will be hitting the outdoors to practice their most favoured activities. One of them being, unsurprisingly, skating. When your kiddos throw on their skates and head off to the skating rink or grab the sleigh to venture the slopes, how confident do you feel about your child's safety? Do you ever feel a tad uneasy about a possible injury? How about gear... do your children have all the necessary gear for when they will be hitting the ice this season?

Where we live this can definitely come in handy! Sledding here we come ;)
