First let me say that I am a born again christian and try to follow what JESUS would have me do ..I fail him daily, yet he picks me up and says try again my child !!!! knowing that he is closer to me than the air I breathe !that I am just dust designed by my Redeemer!!

Today while sitting at work
I had some time to think
about this CHRISTmas eve
so many people
I see in the plaza are busy running to and fro
I have wondered about each one
do they know way down deep in their soul
that JESUS is the true gift
this cant be found in any store
its not
 the most beautiful and most expensive gifts
that we can buy that others  as some will not be pleased
or if pleased its only for a moment in time
when JESUS the greatest gift of all
his gift to us
is sweeter with each day
how he loves us even
when we don't stop to say thank you Lord
On this Christmas eve
I pray that many will come
to know the true
meaning of the greatest gift of all

Blessings to all

The week of thanksgiving

The week of thanksgiving is a bitter sweet week for me and has been
for some 35 years.
This week holds such precious memories of growing up with a big family
Mother always did the cooking , looking back now I don't see how she cooked
for so many,  nine children the husbands and wives and grand kids , I find it hard
to cook for just me and my husband.
I remember seeing her fixing the pies, cakes,and that famous big jar of
fruit salad I have never tasted one like hers how I wish I would have watched
and learned all about how she cooked
Then the last thanksgiving with my Dad he had went to the garden and got me and him
some fresh turnips , peeled and sliced just the way Dad and I loved them , since that day
I have never been able to eat them ,  maybe due to savoring the memories of the special touch
he added to that last thanksgiving , as a few days later he had gone to heaven and he went on my
This year my brother wont be here as he and I loved pumpkin rolls his wife made,  last year he  called to say
if you are not coming to get this last bit I have saved for you I am eating it , I said go on and eat it and enjoy it for me as I am sure he did . I can see us gathered around in a circle at his house as he always said the blessing over the food ~~it brings me to tears , to know he wont be here to enjoy his pumpkin rolls
 ~~I know beyond a shadow of doubt that  my family is feasting on the heavenly food ~~

My family I sure do miss them but heaven is sweeter with them there
May each one have a Happy Thanksgiving and cherish the ones you have
to share this day with

Betty Croker or Genuine G

This past Saturday night
we decided for dinner
we would have my famous
Genuine G's bread and cheese
broiled in the over
Love it the cheese
gets nice and bubbly
and the bread edges lightly toasted
so yummy
I turn the broiler on
and  run some dish water
to wash a few dished
OK so then
I put the cheese and bread
in the oven
back to washing dishes
waiting for just a minute
for the cheese to get just right
then I smell this burning,
smoke alarms are going off
smoke is everywhere
I quickly get the cheese out
to find it
looking like this
only this is after it had cooled 
off and the big black bubble of cheese 
was ready to explode  

I am opening windows, doors,
turning on the ceiling fans
and standing in front
of one of the smoke alarms
fanning the smoke away to
keep my dog from crying from the
tone of the alarm
then after getting all the smoke out
I light a pumpkin spice candle
so the rest of the smoke smell
will go away
my husband says now it smells like
burned pumpkin
oh well !!!
if you would like for me to make
you some now famous
blackened broiled cheese toast
I am the lady

Remember to order
blackened broiled cheese 
from me !!!

Brotherly Kindness~~a Lesson learned in giving

Brotherly Kindness

It was a time in my life when everyone at church had been talking about giving and recieivng from the Lord money that is and I thought all those people are always being blessed by people giving unto them .WOW but it made me wonder a little about giving and that I was taught to give and not expect back.

God used a man in the Golden Corral parking lot to show me something about giving. We were getting into our car and this male comes up asking for money and at first I spoke and said that we didn't have the extra to give to him, as we were backing out the Lord spoke to me and told me to give him money so I told my husband to stop and I gave him what had been laid upon my heart to give which wasn't that much .

Driving down the road my husband and I were talking about giving to this guy and I told Chuck that I had done my part and my heart was OK, how this man used it was between him and GOD . My cell phone rings its someone telling me to stop by on the way home her husband has something for me , I told Chuck  that I bet Jim had been to home depot and I had asked him to bring me samples back of wood flooring with that in mind I knew that was why we were stopping .

We get to Jim's house and I go in and he meets me at the door getting out his wallet handing me money  and gave me much  more  20 times more  not  10 times but 20 times more than I had given this man , it brought me to tears and I told him to about Giving to the man and  please keep the money and put it in the building fund and he said no I am giving it to you and you can put it in if you want.
 Which I did the next morning  I stopped  by the man  who was over the building fund and I gave all of the money   to him and told him how GOD had used this to show me just  how he does give as I wondered about others and them saying things such as this .

I learned a great lesson that night you can NEVER out give GOD .................and he blesses us in many
ways not only by money.

So on my journey I pray that I can always be a giver , as I want to be a blessing to others
I know this was a lesson that was valuable to me
