Sundays breaking of the bread. Families bonding through food and prayer.

Raisin Bread 2018 2

Hello everyone. I want to share with you the thought of a long gone tradition of Sunday dinner. Some of us are still blessed to be able to share it with relatives that would travel to see you and share that special meal. And this is a good thing.

What the delicious meal was , it was a way to bind with the family a special way no other human relationships did for me. As a child, it was all cooked by my grandmother who made everything from scratch and very time-consuming to prepare.

Family would come in and smell the food and begin to salivate. Hugging and kissing each other from not seeing each other for so long. We always had the LORD in all we said and did. And when the meal was on the table we all went in to the dinning room to eat.

We sat down and held hands, bowed our heads and prayed. Giving thanks to God for the safe trip to and for the blessing of the meal, and the cook. My beloved grandmother.

Acts 2:46 English Standard Version (ESV)

46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,

As we live in a new era where things are not the same as it were even ten years ago, both parents have to work because of the cost of things going up so high. My both of parents worked too. And my point today is that we need to find time to pry together at our meals at home. Making these Sunday meals special for the children to remember and understand these traditions. And if you don’t have time to cook, eat out and say grace over your food there and in your car back home mention bible verses that pertain to this bonding.

John 6:35 English Standard Version (ESV)

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

Children seem to remember scripture better with food when you mention bread…then they will remember the scripture with bread in it. Like they know about the homemade bread that Mom or Dad made, and will link the two together.

Deuteronomy 12:7 English Standard Version (ESV)

And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the Lord your God has blessed you.

You can even if you have the time get into making bread that you and the children will help you with, and while it is baking go over some scripture to help them to memorize the word. Here is a site’s link to some scripture you might what to use:

Open Bible

Raisin Bread 2018 4

This is my homemade bread in the “rise” mode on my “Breadman” bread machine. While this is doing its thing, I am able to multi-task. You can get these at yard sales or thrift shops for $5.

Raisin Bread 2018 3

Bread is done and is going on a cooling rack before cutting in to slices. I am giving you the recipe I used to make this so you will be able to make and share bread with your family too. This is for a bread maker machine. I think it can be converted to a traditional oven as well. But you will have to hand knead it, and depending on your elevation how moist the dough should be. This machine will maker your dough alone and you can put the dough into your oven at 350. Not all recipes are the same for each bread machine. So be aware.

Makes 1-1/2 pound loaf

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

3/4 cup warm water

1 egg

1 TBS spoon of butter or oil

2 -2/3 cups of all-purpose flour

3 TBS dry milk

2 TBS sugar

1/3 cup raisins

1 -1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp salt

1- 1/2 tsp dry yeast

Let the bread cool on cookie racks before cutting it. Enjoy your bread.


1 Corinthians 10:31 English Standard Version (ESV)

31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

As our kids grow up and are in the world with secular distractions around them and us, we need to encourage our children and make sure they stay in the word to keep the bonds not only with us the parents,  but with our GOD.

May you havea blessing for the reading of this word and sharing it as well. Pass it forward. Have a good day in the Lord.




I love you Father GOD!!!




Deuteronomy 6:5

“And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”

Father GOD I give you the praise and honor and love from all of my heart mind and soul, at all times. For with you and your beloved son JESUS whom I claim as my savior are my total comfort zone.

With you Father GOD do I trust in to get through each day of life that you have given me to make it through this world. You are the positive force in my life in this negative ways of the world. For with you Father GOD is my pure joy!

No one thing on this earth will give me the pure love and joy on this earth because of how much I know that you love me. Your love is perfect beyond measure!

For with your perfect love, the sending of your beloved son JESUS on this earth. To save the lives of all of mankind from the sins we all have done. To the sacrifice your beloved obedient son to save all of mankind is so far beyond the understanding that we mankind can ever comprehend!

Bless you FATHER GOD at all times now and through all of eternity long!!! I seek to be with you Father GOD when my time is up on this earth. To see your face, to hear Jesus say “Job well done” at the gates of heaven will be the sweetest thing I will ever hear. To be able to see you and your son in heaven, to live there for all of eternity long is the best “praise party” to ever be invited to!

So many trials I have been through in my life and by your grace I was pulled right through them all!  I thank you for saving me and blessing me so. My trust is with you Father GOD, for when I cry out to you with the tears in my eyes you know what I feel. I can not hide my feelings from you for you do know my heart.

I thank you Father GOD for your son Jesus, and sending him as the “key” to heavens gate. For I know as I live here on earth a place is made for me and all of mankind who have Jesus as their savior! What peace! What joy! What love! All from you and all that you do!

Praise and glory be to you dear beloved Father GOD at all times now and forever more to and though all of eternity long!

I love you dear Father GOD with all of my heart mind soul and strength!

love the lord 2018

Verses about loving GOD at this link. I just had to praise GOD alone today. For He gives me encouragement when I truly do need it and I know He will do the same for you as well. GOD is so good. I can not express enough how grateful I am to have Jesus as the savior of my soul. Here are some verses about loving GOD at this link below.

May you all receive a blessing for the reading of this post and all of my posts in this blog. Be encouraged at all times and stay in prayer, do not let the evil one distract you from the LORD.



Stop the wars, bullying and fighting, focus on GOD.

Kids fighting 2018

When I see anyone of any age fighting it make me uncomfortable. It is not a good thing to see. For what I see is the intense anger or hate that is making these two come at each other. Like this picture here, it is an uncomfortable thing to see 2 little ones fighting like this. Right? Since Cain slew Able in the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible, some siblings did not get along.

But you see, adults will go after each other the same way, and it can be worse. It becomes more complicated and destructive when these things do take place. With 2 people, families, neighborhoods, and countries. Over what? And as adults, why did not the two aim to get along? If it was a misunderstanding then it should have been addressed. But in the world of spiritual warfare, I really do know why. And this is sad. This happens anywhere there are people.

Children may not know better until a loving parent steps in and shows the children that this is not good what they are doing at all. I am hoping that this is what went down with these girls in the picture. The maybe on better terms now knowing that what was going on was not a good idea. I have seen siblings doing this sort of thing as a child myself and grew these same that I knew who could not get along were very loving and close when as adults.

James 4 :11

11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sistera or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.

I do no like fighting, guns or wars. They steal lives, mangle and hurt people, orphan children, tear up families, kill animals for sport and not food and clothing and distract those who love GOD into ways they should not be heading to. Keeping those who need a chance to follow GOD, and not getting it. Nations of people fought in Bible times and we will continue to do so until JESUS comes back in the rapture. All of us who love GOD are waiting for the return of JESUS and it can be at anytime.

We as believers in the word of GOD, who do love GOD and HIS son JESUS need to pray for all of the planet. The whole planet. The people, the earth all that is in it. We need to. If those who do not believe can’t do it due to little or no faith then who will. Each of us that has lived on this earth has seen , been in some type of war or fight. No matter what generation you belong to, you have heard about one on the news, or know of a relative that was sent to battle in the military.



When you think about it, we are all descendants of Adam and Eve. Hating and killing each other instead of keeping our mind on the LORD. Not good. Many have not had the chance to know of GOD and HIS son JESUS if they are your neighbor or have lived in an area of the world where there are no people to minister to them. And it is not only in Africa like many seem to think. It is ALL over the world. It can be even in your own home with your loved one(s) who are lost in darkness walking away from JESUS. Leaving you alone to pray for them and lead them to GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS to save their souls.

I do not like wars, as I have mentioned it before. I am grateful for the service men and women who did their best to protect this country with their lives and limbs. They should be respected for it, they gave all they had. I have family that have served too, bless all of those who did for peace. But this would not need to be if we did not feel the need to kill off people who do not agree with us or they to kill us off either.

The kings and presidents of other countries should go out there on the battle grounds. That might stop it too. Those who feel the need to take out other countries usually are at home in the safety of military as they say fire at he opposition. If these same men or women were the ones made to go out and fight, they would rather not. Our sons and daughter would not have to fight.

Romans 12:18 Context

15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

It is very hard to do anything with out JESUS. To be like JESUS and to forgive those that hate you, is impossible without HIM. The devil knows what mankind weaknesses are and plays on it. He knows what to do , to cause strife among the people. Staying focused on the LORD is our strength at all times.

Prayer over your household, so that your children will come home safe and sound from school and be safe in school. Once prayer was taken out of the school the devil laughed because he was able to confuse the children and lead them into destruction and confusion of all kinds. Keeping them distracted from GOD.

These same children are now adults who are trying to influence our children who are not being taught about GOD and salvation , and those who are too as well. But once you have and continue to help your children to develop a good strong faith every night it will be their shield. Do not depend in others to teach your child about the LORD, you do it. You don’t know for sure what kind of person (in faith and righteousness level) you are trusting your child to.

Proverbs 22: 6

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

There on more verses here at this site about children and teaching them prayer at this site.

Once we go back to prayer, and teaching our children prayer, they will see the ways of fighting and war in unnecessary. The ways of GOD and peace are necessary.


May all who read this blog get a blessing from reading this and sharing it to others. Have a great day and enjoy JESUS as your savior! Praise and glory be to GOD at all times!



Praying to the one and only true living GOD!



Photo from website


Upon my understanding of what church is, many of us have their very own opinions of it is different. I need to know more about why we as people who pray to the one and only true living GOD argue about faith and how to pray. And many of you who go to church have seen debates as well going on there that made it seem more like a political gathering than a pleasant fellowship of faith gathering. I have read in the word that we are the body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:27 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Church to many is a building where we all gather to give GOD praise and honor HIM in unity. To study the word through the Pastor or to have bible study. To have fellowship with like minded people. To have the religious ceremonies such as marriage, Christenings, funerals and Baptisms. Many loving and bonding Christian ceremonies go on in church by always putting GOD first in it.

Bickering like how the secular people do over a football game is not what I feel JESUS would do or would want us to do either. The secular crowd of people will only pay attention to Christians if they feel Christians doing something wrong. See or hear about us doing something wrong. Just plain out even doing anything they do themselves. They look to see imperfections and not knowing that all mankind is imperfect , for this is why we all need JESUS as savor. If they read they Bible they would know. For we can not save ourselves. We need to be united as believers and encourage one another. We need to keep in mind that those who don’t believe will say, “See, I told you they were like this or that. Christians fight too, so what is the point in listening to them?”.

A House Divided

(Matthew 12:22-30; Luke 11:14-23)

20And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself. 22And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. 23And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 27No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.


How are we going to learn to be united as brothers and sisters for JESUS Christ if we re not focused on what JESUS is telling us in the word how to have the inner peace we all need to get through the nonsense of this world when we can not get along in a gathering in a building made to have Christian fellowship?

If one is confused and is looking for answer to what is this all about why these people call on JESUS, we have to be ready for an answer. If GOD is leading one child of GOD to say or do something that will plant the seed in someone, then being contradicting and discouraging will discourage 2 people. The one trying to encourge one person, and the one who needs to be encouraged to follow the LORD and be saved. We do not want to have anyone turn away from wanting to come to the LORD.


Disagree Or Agree Directions On A Signpost

1 Corinthians 11:18

“For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.”

We are all one with JESUS when we have the love of HIM in us. When we believe in GOD and know that JESUS is our savior of our very souls. When we know just how much GOD loves us all to even send HIS son to earth and suffer as how JESUS did.

We should remember there is no divisions in mankind, we are al the same. But we choose what path we want to walk down in life. Be it GODS way or the worlds way. No color , gender , beauty standard, financial status, where you were born, or what title you have to your name . No rules made by mankind to divide mankind from one another. GOD is not a respecter of men, or women. You maybe a member of  a church committee, CEO of a company, or a King or Queen in a country. Every knee shall bow before GOD.

Romans 2:11 King James Version (KJV)

11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

My point to all of what I was saying is we need to get into the mindset of unity with a JESUS heart. Connect with our savior and listen to HIS guidance in the word and with HIM talking to you giving you a loving push into HIS direction. No matter what country you come from, we need to lose the worlds standards. That are put into our faith and to do our faith as how GOD wants it to be. Not someone whose worldly and popular saying they are spiritual and changing the meanings of the bible to suit the lifestyle they live. We all will have to answer to GOD regarding the ways of the world, all of us. Me, you, the person walking by you , people in the movies we watch. Those that have died before us, and those yet to be born if the Rapture does not come before then.

Church is within us all, not a building. The building we go into was made for us to gather together and be sheltered from the weather. As we assemble together to join in praise and fellowship. This site, “The United Church of GOD” had a good post on it regarding what I am speaking of.

The United Church of GOD

I ask that we all pray for peace across the world and become unified in the Church and all over the world. We who do believe in GOD and HIS son, need to forget our pride. As to who is right on how to pray and when to pray as long as we are praying as how GOD wants us to pray. And how we encourage other to come to JESUS, there needs to be a seed planted in them. Let GOD make it grow.
May a blessing be on those who read the world with the love of GOD in thier heart, and to encourage those that seek after JESUS to get their faith on, and for those who share this post.
