Making Origami For the First Time

Making Origami For the First Time

Making Origami (1)

On Monday I did something I haven’t done before: I made some (7) origami things, birds and land animals. I made them by following instructions on a great website that’s all about origami, and it has some videos. I’ll include the link to that website at the end of this post.
This was a fun and new experience for me, to make something I haven’t made before, taking a piece of paper and turning it into something that looks like a bird or land animal. Following the steps and instructions and watching some of the available videos really helped me out.
I am a beginner at this so there will likely be some error in how I made at least some of the things, I have a lot to learn and much practicing to do before I make any of those again without looking the instructions, but it’s something that caught my interest so I will keep doing this.

Below I share with you a picture of the 7 finished origami things I made and a note on what it is and what I used to make it.

I’ll make more origami things and share the pictures here in a new post sooner or later. I’ll make things different from those I already made and see how it goes.

Do you know how to make origami? If you can share some of your work here somehow or comment what you think about origami or why you like it or not.


Sunday Praise (38) 5/26/19

Sunday Praise (38) 5/26/19. by me.

This day has sun and clouds,
Some rain and a cool breeze,
Now I can see the blue sky
And clouds moving high above.

This feels peaceful, tranquil,
A day of rest and praising You
For Your love and mercy,
For all that You do, Lord.

The beauty of so many things
Created by You, God Almighty,
It fills with awe and gratitude,
It shows Your creativity, majesty.

Lord, I thank You sincerely
For the cool air around me
And for the air in my lungs,
Your mercy is seen clearly.

You deserve so much more
Than all that I can give You
But I give You the best I can,
I know You’re worthy, Lord.

You daily tell me
“Come and follow Me.”
I want to daily follow You
And do more for Your glory.

You’ve led me this far in life,
You’ve given me all I need,
You’ve answered all my prayers
According to Your wisdom and will.

You’ve given me wisdom
When I You asked for it
When I lacked it and needed
What only You can give.

While I’ve breath in my lungs
I will praise You, o holy God,
I’ll glorify You as long as I live
And then forevermore in eternity.

God, I haven’t fallen apart
Because You keep me together,
I haven’t broken down
For You always sustain me.

I wait with patience and hope
To go to that heavenly city,
I know Your promises are true,
You do all You say You will do.

In life’s darkest moments
I know I can trust You,
Father, You won’t abandon me,
You’re with me through it all.

I will always need You,
You’re mine, I’m Yours,
I will always praise You,
You alone are worthy of glory.

Master, You’re all I want,
Creator, You’re all I need,
Savior, You deserve worship
And obedience and love.

You are most holy, Lord,
Yours is a transcendent purity,
You are love, God Almighty,
You are the living and true God.

Father, thank You for the Cross
On which Christ died for sinners,
Thank You for raising Him from the dead,
Thank You for salvation, for hope, for life.

Jesus lived and died and rose again
For me and I amazed by that fact,
Your love humbles me and fills me
With thanksgiving, gratitude, and love.

I’m fearfully and wonderfully made
By You, Creator, Maker, Potter, God,
You know everything about me,
You know me better than I know myself.

I can never thank You enough
For all that You’ve done for me,
For the part You take in my life,
For being the most important Person.

My death could be a moment away
But I know You are faithful, Lord,
Your promises will all be kept,
My hope in You isn’t in vain.

Fill my heart with gratitude
And my lips with thanksgiving,
Help me to pray, to bless You, Lord,
Give me a new song to sing to You.

You’re Omnipotent, I believe,
You’re Omnipresent, I know,
You’re Omniscient, I realize,
There’s no one like You, God.

May Your Word fill my heart and mind
And live in me so I’ll remember it
And walk in Your holy ways, Father,
I will trust and obey You more and more.

God, with rejoicing and songs
I will glorify You who is victorious
Over sin and death and every enemy,
I will praise You with all is within me.

Sunday Praise (37) 5/19/19

Sunday Praise (37) 5/19/19. by me.

I’ve seen You at work again
In my life and in others’ lives,
You hear and answer prayers,
You give us what we need.

You’ve sent rain this week,
You’ve made the sun shine,
You send the warmth and cold,
You show You’re God over all.

You are worthy of admiration,
Worthy of all honor and glory,
Worthy to be praised and adored,
Worthy to be worshiped by all.

We continue celebrating Easter,
You raising Christ from the dead,
His victory over sin, Satan and death,
Our heart rejoices in You, God.

Savior, You’re our only hope,
Propitiation for our sins,
Deliverance from sin and Hell,
You’re our salvation, eternal life.

You’ve created everything visible
And everything that’s invisible,
You are the Maker and Creator,
You are God alone, there’s no other.

You’ve made it all for Your glory,
To declare Your praises, o Lord,
The works of Your mighty hands
Show Your creativity and majesty.

I see the beautiful flowers
And the fruit-bearing trees
And the appealing plants
And I thank You for it all.

I’ve found rest for my soul in You,
You’ve saved me, redeemed me,
The world can never give me
What You’ve given me, Savior.

The Church will gather to praise
Her Groom, You, the Head, the Lord,
You have done amazing things
For the undeserving ones, Master.

I still have a long way to go
Before I’m who You want me to be,
But I know You will complete
The work You’ve started in me.

I need to devote myself wholly to You,
To learn to better obey You, Master,
It’s where I fail and must grow,
Teach me to obey You in love.

I know You won’t leave me,
You won’t forsake or abandon me,
I know that You love me,
Heavenly Father, I love You.

Lead me on this narrow road,
Be with me through it all,
Lead me into eternity, Lord,
I will be forevermore with You.

As the deer pants for the water
So my soul longs for You, God,
May I desire to know You better
And learn to better love and obey You.

I await the eternal spring
But I know only You know
When my time here is over,
When You’ll call me Home to You.

I will wait and my soul will learn
The patience You want me to have,
You’re teaching me to endure here,
You’re giving me what I need, God.

I will learn to better praise You
Your Spirit will indwell me and I
Will grow in love and obedience
Until Christ returns or I die.

On this journey of life and faith
You’ve been with me every moment
And I know that You will be with me
‘Til my end here and then forevermore.

Sunday Praise (36) 5/12/19

Sunday Praise (36) 5/12/19. by me.

You’ve given me everything I have,
I can’t thank You enough for it all,
You know what’s best for me,
Father, You give what I need.

You’ve made this day and all the others,
You gave me this life to live, o Lord,
You’ve created me for Your glory,
You’ve created all for Your glory.

Your amazing grace is still amazing,
You are still Sovereign King over all,
None can dethrone You, Master,
King of kings and Lord of lords.

I’m still celebrating Jesus’ resurrection
With brothers and sisters in Christ,
I thank You for the fellowshipof believers,
For the adopted children of the Lord.

You’ve raised Christ from the dead,
Now He sits at Your right hand,
He will come back for His Bride,
Forevermore we’ll be with You.

Christ is risen indeed from the grave,
He is alive, He rules, yes, He reigns,
You’re my white sail, my ark of salvation,
You’re my hope, my life, my everything.

I pray for You to change my heart,
Potter, mold me and make me
Into what You want me to become,
Conform me to Christ’s likeness.

Your invisible hand protects me,
With it You guide me, protect me,
I can’t deny You’re living and active
In my life and in the lives of others.

I want to always serve You
With me heart devoted to You,
Giving You the best of all I have,
Faithfully obeying Your will.

Lead me, Lord, I will follow
You until the end of my life
And then be with You forever,
I can’t imagine a better future.

I will praise You with my heart,
My soul will rejoice in You, God,
You are more than enough for me,
You’re my all in all, my everything.

Sunday Praise (35) 5/5/19. by me.

This new day is a gift from You,
Father, You give us all we have,
You’re Creator, Maker, Sustainer,
You hold it all in Your hands.

The time of celebration continues,
We remember Christ’s death for sinners
And how You raised Him from the dead,
He overcame sin, Satan, and the grave.

Thank You for Your Son
Who died for me on the Cross,
And He’s the only One
Who saved me, this I know.

His death on Golgotha for sinners
Showed Your amazing love,
Lord, You’re worthy of all praise,
The best of all that creation can give.

Help us to praise You, Lord,
Lead us in Your holy ways,
Guide us every step of the way,
Show us how to live and die.

Fill us with Your Holy Spirit,
Fill our lips with thanksgiving,
Fill our hearts with praise,
Help us to give You all glory.

Change our hearts, Potter,
Make us more like Christ,
Conform us to His likeness,
Make us who we should be.

Blessed be Your holy name,
Blessed be You, God Almighty,
Now and forever be glorified,
Be lifted high above all, Lord.

Bring us all nearer to You,
Guide us on the narrow road,
Help us to resist temptation,
Strengthen us to do Your will.

Help us, Father, to be faithful
In obeying You in our life,
To praise You every day,
To rejoice in You always.

Now and forever You reign,
You are Sovereign over all,
Without rival, without equal,
You are God, there’s no other.
