Canning your food. Watermelon rind relish. Waste not, want not!

Hello everyone.

I hope you all are well

This is an very old recipe that I understand came from the times of the depression, and even before that in the south when the black people back then had to live off the land. My first taste of this relish was in the south. The relatives there made this made it like a sweet relish or bread and butter pickle recipe. and this is how I made mine. I used Mrs Wages bread and butter mix that comes in a bag ready to use

After adding the spice ingredients, following the recipes on Mrs Wages “Bread and Butter

Watermelon rind being prepared for canning. Yummy! I though I had taken more pictures as to how to how they were in my canner, and when they were done too. But sometimes the camera will not act as how you want it to. But if I do fine the pictures I will post them.

So here is another way to do the watermelon. There are many ways to do them, but to preserve it for long term can your product and you can eat it all year round.

This is a YouTube video showing how to make them.

They will come out good and will save you money in the long run from buying jam or jellies too.

See this pagan holiday like others things that does not have GOD in it has turned people of the world away from the path of righteousness, away from reading the Bible, separating us from our HOLY FATHER GOD! And with this will be a horrible praice to pay when JESUS returns or when our days are done. You can not be saved from the sin you are in unless yo repent.

Just simply stop. Turn to JESUS and ask for help! JESUS will answer you, and come to your rescue to pick you up and to hold you near! HE will be your light in these times of darkness. So, why celebrate this darkness when you can have peace, light and love?

Do not compromise your faith. This is your soul that is in jeopardy when you do. And we do not know when our beloved JESUS will return either.

You know what, all of this darkness as I understand it is in hell. These demons and ghosts that people dress up as is in hell. The evil that this holiday brings is from hell (dressing up as demons for example). So if you do not what anything to do with hell, why celebrate it? And not repent and serve GOD????

GOD is good, and GOD is good all of the time!!!

I am not one that feels the need or desire to celebrate a pagan festival such as Halloween that is formally known as “Samhain” of celtic origin.

According to GOOGLE definitions:

past tense: hallowed; past participle: hallowed
  1. honor as holy.
    “the Ganges is hallowed as a sacred, cleansing river”
    • make holy; consecrate.

Old English hālgian (verb), hālga (noun), of Germanic origin; related to Dutch and German heiligen, also to holy.
According to GOOGLE search

“Where did the origin of Halloween come from?

Ancient Origins of Halloween. Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.”

This is something a Christian show pass on, for those who celebrate usaually are not celbrting the LORD GOD creator of all heaven and earth. Just because it is popular , you see all of the people in your circle doing this , and it is fun does not mean it is right. It is not giving honor and glory to GOD and HIS son JESUS.
Wiccans celebrate this day on October 31st of each year. Origially Halloween was called “The festival of Samhain”
There are articles on this subject of  wiccans at this link:
According to GOOGLE search:
“Why Halloween is created?
Hansen: The practices of Halloween mostly come from Celtic paganism in the British Isles, and their feast of Samhain, the new year. They believed it was the time when ghosts and spirits came out to haunt, and the Celts would appease the spirits by giving them treats”
This is why children are tempted with candy and treats. To have their minds set to celebrating this day. Dressing up into costumes of dead things and people. This is a cultish type thing that is done to turn distract people from whom we all are to give glory and honor to. GOD , the one and only true living GOD and creator of all heaven and earth. Period.
According to GOOGLE search:
“How did Halloween start and why?
The history of Halloween – how it all started. Halloween began as the festival of Samhain. It was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other parts of Europe. At the end of summer, the Celts thought the barrier between our world and the world of ghosts and spirits got really thin”
Have you noticed that there are less and less movies and themes of who we really should be giving honor to? Meaning our heavenly Father GOD and to give thanks to His son JESUS on TV, or the movies as it has been 30 years ago….20 years ago or even ten? Why you see more and more the push of this day 10/31 being pushed so? I see more and more people into that and happy to spend hundreds of dollars on that and then complain about Christmas being commercialized and all about gifts. But are quite content to honor a wiccan holiday spending more than they would on the celebration of JESUS coming to earth the save all of mankind from sins we ALL have done.
Listening to the radio, at work and what the people do and say for the 10/31 celebration that they are planning on is really like they are spending all of their money. time and talk about it. The costumes, food, parties, drinking, and whatever else they can think of dong for that day 10/31 as compared to when Christmas comes.
This is what I hear some people say about the celebration of Christmas.
“Oh I don’t do much on that day. We don’t give gifts. We just sit around and eat and see each other who we see once a year. Christmas is so commercialized and I hate that.”
“Oh I don’t look forward to that. My family is dysfunctional. We argue and don’t get along on that day and I hate to see it coming. “
“It’s just for the kids. And we give gifts for them and once its opened and all they break them all before the end of the day. Then you have all of this paper and trash to get rid of. The meal you spend hours or days to make goes in 10 seconds. And no one wants to help to clean up.”
We complain and take the joy right out of the day of Christmas and as Christians we should not do this.  We should be happy that JESUS came as the way to life and love, the key to the kingdom as what my Grandmother would say.
What I hear secular people say about Halloween.
“Oh man we had a great time, those drinks were awesome. I got so wasted.”
“Did you see what ( fill in the blank) did at the party?  He ( or she) got so wasted an threw up in the hall way closet. Then felt better and got more to drink. I knew when everyone left they were trying to figure out who did that”
“Some female got my number and was saying we did all this crazy stuff at the party and said I was ok with it and wanted to do that again next weekend! I don’t remember her at all. I mean I was pretty wasted at the time…..”
I could go on, but I am quite sure that you all have heard more, and worse and so therefore you see my point. They took joy in the celebration of the pagan wiccan day.
We should praise GOD and give thanks to HIM. Putting no other gods before HIM.

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.”


More verses on honoring GOD at this link:

Luke 4:8

“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Scripture is very clear about who we are to serve. Satan and his deeds and fallen angels were kicked out of heaven. So, why would he want us mankind to have what his does not have? He was around when GOD created us, and know our weakness of the fleash. So he will play on it and try to tempt us to do things against our beloved GOD and HIS son JESUS at any time. Satan hates us all even those who openly follow him like the people in this article who celebrate “all souls day”. We need to know some things before we get so involved in them we are sorry. And this is why I am warning you. This is about your soul and mine to be saved from learks roaming around in the world to steal our joy. Our true joy is in the connection we with GOD and HIS son JESUS. So beware of all things, pray for discernment from the LORD.

This site is not GODLY. But I post it to show you that Halloween is not for Christians at all.

The Pagans Path

Keep your faith and stay in prayer.

The reason I am taking the time to tell you all about Halloween is because it is not a good thing to do if you are a follower of Christ and want your soul to be in heaven when it is your time to die. We want our savoir to lead us home into enternal peace, pure love, pure joy and to kneel before GOD and see his heavenly face. Praise GOD almighty now and forever and for all of eternity long!

Exodus 34:14


“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”

God loves us so HE gave his only begotten son to be our savoir of our souls. Our key to heavens door. We don’t have to do good deeds or favors to get into heaven. JESUS paid it in full. Why would you want to worship anyone else but GOD?

Worship only GOD.

There are many good points here on this site that I have mentioned before and with scripture so you can refer to them in your Bible.

I am going to lose with this scripture. If you are not putting GOD into the celebration or giving thanks to him…then it is not right. You can give a praise party to GOD and dress up in your best clothes like a evening out reading scripture and giving candy to the children. Giving Bibles or other GODLY reading material at this party. And you can do so on 10/31 just so you are not involved in the demonic parts of that day. Make it a celebration to GOD.

Matthew 4:10


“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

King James Version (KJV)


1 Samuel 12:24


“Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.”


Be blessed and never stressed. Leave all negative things out if your life that will distract you from GOD and HIS son JESUS. You do not need it, but you need the HOLY FATHER GOD, the acceptance of JESUS as savior. And to stay in a bonding connection with them so that when your days are done you will be in the best place ever, in heaven with them for all eternity long!

James 3:16. “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”

Hello all, I do pray that all is well with you today and that your whole day will be blessed! And never stressed.

I want to share with you all today comfort. Comfort in the word of GOD and the love and peace that is in HIS word. Our beloved FATHER GOD loves us and HE shows it through HIS word.

AS humans we may not see what GOD has blessed us with as we live our lives day to day. Our FATHER GOD has given all of mankind a perfect blessing, and it is HIS son JESUS for a chance to be saved. To also be able to share the gifts HE has given us all.

If the LORD GOD has given us a Ministry to work in, be it with someone else in theirs the serve our LORD or a small storefront. Where he has put us to serve HIM to spread the word and save souls or to be in a church to serve there. It is for our GODs glory to spread the word, not ours.

We don’t need to envy the larger Church if we a given a small store front. This is the place where we start and if we have the right heart, it will grow. For there maybe a soul there in that place that will need to be saved.

Any type of envy is not good or welcome amongst the body of Christ. It is like a sickness that will devide the brothers and sisters of the Church.

1 Peter 2:1

“Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,”

King James Version (KJV)

Not only in the Church, but anywhere there is mankind and the evil ne will come t cause confusion and strife with mankind. Destroying any kind of unity in mankind. These feelings of strife, hate , jealousy, envy are not of GOD. Holding onto a evil feeling for 10 years or even 10 minutes is not a good thing.

And it will eat at the person holding onto the hate and not willing to let go. Causing them harm and not the person they refuse to forgive and let go of the anger. This can affect the health with all kinds of stressful issues. Yes, this is why it is better to forgive a person than to hold on to anger. And we all need prayer to so.

Our lives are but a vapor. Spending time doing anything that GOD will not approve of is a waste of time and a distraction. All of us has an cross to bear. All of us are sinners. All of us need to pray and pray for each other. At all times.

Let us not depend on the ways of the world to make us happy for this will never work. Trust in and wait on GOD and HIS son JESUS for help. GOD created us , so HE knows how to fix us too. Learn what gifts our GOD gave you and use them as how GOD wants you ti use them for HIS glory. Leave jealousy alone forever.

Ezra 8:23 KJV. Fasting and prayer!

Hello all!

I do hope all is well and as we give our GOD another thank-you! For another day here on this side of heaven to give GOD praise thanking him for all HE has done. Praise and glory be to GOD almighty now and for all of eternity long. It is so good to know we all have a perfect and loving FATHER GOD watching over all of us each and every single day.

I want to share with you what I am learning about fasting in this current day for me right now. I am fasting with two of my children under this Bible application. I will say that I do find it very helpful with the scripture that was chosen. We are in day 7 of our fasting and I am doing my fast according to the fact that I am working and starting off eating so light straight off the bat will make me light headed and not keep at it.

This is the app we are using for the 21 day fasting.
This is the page that will show what devotionals you will need to read each day.

For even doing the fast by skipping even one meal for me and anything that is not allowed in the fast is just a beginning. We are praying for the areas that we need help in besides for all members of the family that we will need help in.

Picture is from this site. You all may already have the information you need to get going. This is to help with what to eat and not to eat.

Matthew Chapter 6

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

I will say that getting closer to GOD and HIS son JESUS is a lifelong learning experience. Even when you think you have learned what you can understand for your age…something else will test you to give you wisdom. I recall many of Pastors will humbly say that they are continuing to learn more of what GOD is in need to show us so that we can be better minsters to others.

We all need to learn all each day, I will not assume that me as a human that was created by GOD the creator knows as much as HE.

This is an bonding and cleansing time for me, and with the scriptures that I am reading right now, even though I may have read them times before there is a new meaning or understanding that is learning for each of this as we are going through our day. Distractions will come that to turn your head away from the FATHER GOD and JESUS which is annoying! But we will always turn back onto the road of righteousness heading for our GOD and JESUS.

Ezra 8:23

“So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.”

King James Version (KJV)

Have your Bible with you so you can look up scriptures on your own and feel GOD and JESUS with you, and be able to talk to them as though you can see them as well feel their mighty presence ! Praise GOD!

Ephesians Chapter 2

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Hello everyone!

I am happy that you all have stopped by to this blog to share the word of GOD!

It is so comforting to know that we serve a mighty, wonderful, loving, patient , all knowing perfect GOD the creator of all heaven and earth! Our GOD is the perfect FATHER to all who have lost their FATHER or who never knew their FATHER!

We have a loving FATHER GOD. HE will be with us at all times. All we have to by faith and trust is to pray to HIM. Acknowledge that HE loves all mankind.

In order to be in heaven and to be able to dwell in our FATHER GODS house, we need to be saved by the blood of HIS son JESUS. JESUS is the only we into heaven, no works or paying large sums out to the church through donations. Good deeds towards men as how you alone see fit.

GOD is the last judge of all things, no human. So in order to please our loving GOD will do as HE says to spend all eternity with HIM in heaven. Repentance (turning away from sin) and following GODS law will never be easy. We need JESUS for help as we pray for strength and faith.


To be able to look into our creators eyes and see the kind of love we have never ever seen before as humans here on earth will be awesome beyond words.




Wait on the LORD.

Gain and increase your faith.

Create a solid relationship with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS

Accept the gift from our beloved FATHER GOD. It is the gift of JESUS as our salvation so we will live for all eternity with FATHER GOD and HIS son JESUS for all eternity long.

What ever happened to correct social skills and etiquette?

Hello all, thank you for stopping by!

I do pray that you all will have a blessed day! And there is 84 days until December 25th when the Birth of JESUS will be celebrated here. And then 90 days from today will be 2022 GOD willing! Time moves right along quickly!

I have concerns about how we treat one another. For things have changed to the point as how we address one another in everyday conversation. I maybe old school in my up bringing, but this up bringing is less complicated. Such as,

I would not address a crowd or room of men and women as “guys”. Never did like being called a guy. I am a natural born woman and I love it and are grateful to GOD for this honor. It is disrespectful to me to be addressed as a “guy” regardless if “everyone” else is doing it. And “everyone” else is not.

Genesis 2:23

“And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

King James Version (KJV)

Being rude by asking people you do not know personal questions. Some people like to keep their lives personal until they feel the need to talk about it. I had a woman one ask me questions while online at a coffee shop as to where I live, worked and so forth. Never met her before. And when I told her she was asking a lot of personal questions she then told me on or two things about herself. Then stopped. People who gossip do this. We all who follow JESUS know we should not do this.

Ephesians 4:29

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”

King James Version (KJV)


et·i·quette/ˈedəkət,ˈedəˌket/Learn to pronouncenoun

  1. the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group.”the rules of etiquette are changing”

In trying my best to be polite at all times, I do not understand why those who are rude do not see it as rude. We should treat each other as how GOD wants us to treat each other. And this is said about those who attend Church, I was not mentioning those who are not saved or who live secular lifestyles. I am talking about those who claim to be in the body of Christ too.

This picture is from this link: “The Spruce”

As we come closer to the time when our LORD will return, things will get worse. But as Christians we need to study the word. For the Bible is the recipe for a good life pleasing to our GOD. And in the word of GOD there is wisdom. He teaches us social etiquette, and social skills to live peacefuly with each other and to first and foremost worship GOD as how HE commands.

Psalms 139:7 GOD is always with you. Always.

Psalms 139:7 Context

4For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 

5Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 

6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. 

7Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 

8If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there

9If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 

10Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Hello all!

I pray that you are all well , and to know our beloved FATHER GOD is always with us. And right now as I write this and then when you read this. GOD is always with us.

For me personally I am ever so grateful to have a powerful GOD watching over me ever so lovingly at all times to make sure that I am safe and sound. It would be awful not to have GOD always around me. It would be horrible if our beloved GOD could not find us.

Not being able to warn us about the trouble that is lying ahead of us around every corner, or to know the plots that the wicked have set before us to walk into! Those who are wicked would have their way. But in reality they do not. Thank you FATHER GOD!

It would be awful to call out to GOD and HE could not be there to comfort us because we were lost! That would be very , very, sad. Like a child that is lost in the woods where the wolves are seeking after her, as she calls out tearfully, “Daddy! Help me!”

But then we do have a FATHER GOD and HIS son JESUS who do and are protecting us from the wolves at all times because we trust in HIM. Trust and faith in the creator of all things, knows how all things function in this earth. We being the creation, and all that is there in this earth, GOD knows what makes us all function.

I tell you all, I would not, I mean NOT ever want to be in a place where our GOD is not. Yes I do know that is impossible. But just to think. There would be not light in your life. No joy, or peace. Nothing good. We would suffer. And those who have fame and fortune right now, the fame and fortune did not help. For there have been many people who have taken their lives for reasons unknown. People like Robin Williams and others, so sad. I do not know if he or the other celebrities where saved or not that took their lives.

And this is my point, we need to seek after our beloved GOD and HIS son. Call after JESUS to be saved, repent and find peace with JESUS as HE will open the gate to heaven FATHER GOD for all of eternity.

Let it be a want and a need to be called home to be with the FATHER GOD for all eternity long. A main goal in life to do our FATHERS will so HE will be pleased with us where ever HE will find us.

Please feel free to pass the link to this blog so others will be blessed too. We all need to know we are never alone because GOD and HIS son is always with us. Please do click the like button below. Thank you and have a blessed day!
