What Can Duct Tape Do?

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me....
                                        Philippians  4:13

Known fact:  You can do almost anything with "Duct Tape"

I have truly been amazed at all the things that people are doing with duct tape these days...   With all the new colors, people are designing all kinds of items out of this stuff....Purses, flowers, jackets, and as you can shoes!
This stuff is STRONG....

Yesterday, my dad bought a  toy for Mylee at one of our local shops in town.  It wasn't anything big.....just a cheap little musical toy.  I had a good feeling that it might not last very long.  What can you expect from a toy, when the total cost of it was $3.04?

Within minutes of being home, she dropped it and a couple of pieces fell off.....Mylee just looked up at me and said: "My mom can fix it, she can fix anything."    My heart just melted at her innocent statement of belief, that her mom could fix ANYTHING.    What amazing Trust!!

You know, many of us go throughout our day, fixing all kinds of stuff.  A lot of times, we do depend on things like duct tape to help us put things back together.  We glue items in order to make them hold up.  We use a hammer and nails to secure wooden objects, and we do this to either fix something or to make it strong...

 I am so thankful that I have {God} as my strength.  The strength that HE gives me each day, is much stronger than any duct tape or any kind of gorilla glue, hammer or nail.  I can depend on His strength to help me do ANYTHING!!

Thank you Lord for your never ending love and strength..

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday....

Shug !     Oh yes......GO BEARS!!


  1. Thank God for His strength and power. Have a fabulous weekend.

  2. Hi Shug!

    I love Duct Tape! My grandson made a wallet out of it one time, and it was great! My step-father used to call it, "magic mend-all"!

    I really love that you associated it with God, who of course is the Master of fixing... :0) I don't even want to guess how many times He has had to fix me! What a gracious a loving Father we have...Blessings to you sweet friend!


  3. My husband always can fix anything with duct tape, except a broken heart...ha...ha!

    I too am so thankful that God is my fixer! I know He can fix a broken heart! smile..


  4. Oh Shug...I love your new header! Go Bears!

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Very well stated! By the way, love the duct tape house shoes. Crazy how much folks are doing with that silly tape these days. Happy weekend!

  7. I was hoping you'd tie Mylee's statement into God's strength. Wonderful analogy, Shug. Just wonderful. And true. :)


Thank you for Blessing me today with your comments...
