Drum lessons.

Describe a decision you made in the past that helped you learn or grow.

Learning something new is challenging. And playing drums or any new instrument will give you a jolt.

I have been taking drums for about 6 weeks now. It’s fun for right now since I am learning 4/4 and 8th notes now.

Hopefully I learn some gospel music to play. Right now, the instructor is teaching me the basics. And that is to the type of music he picks for whatever reason. And it’s okay.

Have a blessed day. Peace!

GOD and JESUS, cooking and gardening in that order.

What topics do you like to discuss?

I will be the most boring person to some or like-minded to others. It is all cool. When I have conversations with others, it is usually more about salvation.

I can not talk about JESUS to all people because not all people have accepted JESUS and will be offended if Γ¬ happen to mention HIS Holy name!

It is wonderful to meet up with people who are like-minded. I find joy in praising the LORD with others.

Then there’s food. Where to shop for it, where to eat out, how to cook it or can it.

I enjoy cooking and making new recipes. Dumplings wrapped in the wonton wrappers we get from the veggie section in our grocery.

I made enough dumplings here in the picture shown to last a week! Not every day after work do I feel like cooking. Planning ahead helps.

Then on the list is growing your food to eat. The garden is your grocery store. It keeps the grocery bill down. You are eating organic food if you don’t use chemicals.

Grow your own, eat your own vegetables, fruits, and nuts!

Have a peaceful and blessed day!

I think emojis are needed when texting.

What are your favorite emojis?

When I am speaking to people, I use different ones depending on the conversation. There are times you need to use emojis when you are texting because your facial expression can not be seen.

When I am kidding or find something funny. πŸ˜„

When asking a question and thinking about what was said.πŸ€”

When surprised. 😯

When in prayer for someone or saying be blessed .πŸ™πŸΎ

Very basic emojis for me.

Fellow believers read 1 John 4:5 . Be encouraged.

Hello all.

As we go thru our Christian walk, you are focused on doing right by GOD. You will be disliked by the world. Even if it is the 1st time ever meeting those of the world. Depending on the worldly person, they will do or say something to let you know they are not of GOD. And you may not even know they were near you until they let you know they are there!

I have met people who are also in a ministry for the LORD, who have had similar experiences. They will have those negative experiences directed to them from their family members, and those who were considered close friends. We who want to serve the LORD need to be encouraged by each other.

1 John 4:5

β€œThey are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.”

King James Version (KJV)

When you are doing the will of GOD, and spreading HIS word, that is all you need to concern yourself with now. Because you are doing what is right, then you will be going to heaven to be with GOD. We are to plant the seed. And speak to those who want to listen to what we are led to say.

When you care more about people’s souls you will tell them the good news of the gospel. You want them to be able to stand before JESUS and HE will let them into heaven. That when they die you both will see each other in heaven and enjoy perfect peace.

John 4:17 Context

14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.Β 

15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.Β 

16Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.Β 

17The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:Β 

18For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.Β 

19The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.Β 

20Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

How our beloved JESUS talked to the woman at the well with patience and love. No judgement. Don’t let the person feel that you are judging them and let them know they are loved. Let them know that you have found the bread of life and want to share it with them! And so that they will not choose to go to hell. But to choose to go to heaven to be with the LORD!

Revelation 21:4

β€œAnd God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

King James Version (KJV)

You know how wonderful it will be to see every person you know in heaven? All of them saved and part of the body of Christ? All of your loved ones that have gone home before you? And it would be nice for all of the people you talked to planting the seed of GODs word there too.

No more pain, death, sorrow, crying, or pain. No evil- or evil-minded people to distract you or hurt you from listening to GOD. Just being able to look into the eyes of pure perfect love and see who is our beloved Creator!

John 15:19

β€œIf ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

King James Version (KJV)

Continue to believe and spread GODs word. There so many people out there that need to have that anger that is put in them by the evil one removed by the Good beloved JESUS our savior! Give them the choice of knowing they can go to heaven or hell. Hopefully they will choose heaven!

Peace and blessings!

My beloved JW coworker.

When is the last time you took a risk? How did it work out?

We both love seafood.

Hello all.

I met a woman at work who, at first, I didn’t know was a Jehovah witness. We had talked and was beginning to form a friendship.

As the days and weeks went by, we found that we had a lot of common interests. Like seafood and sunflowers!

Things changed when she was studying to be a pastor at her congregation. She looked down her nose at anyone who was not a JW. And that included me.

She would talk to me as if I were unsaved. In condescending tones. She considered my Christian faith if saying that JESUS is a Deity and son of the one and true living GOD is wrong. And would not pray with me because she felt that we prayed to different GODs.

John 3:16

β€œFor God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

King James Version (KJV)

I took a chance and rebuked her remarks and gave her John 3:16. And asked her if she thought that JESUS was just a man or a Deity. She never answered that. And it is has never been the same when I had to tell her that the things she said was not right to say.

She would only speak to me as I found out she was trying to convert me into her cult. And when she saw that she couldn’t “minister” to me she stopped speaking. I have had other friends who were JW’s. and they never did acted like this. I was surprised, for she had been almost friendly at one point.

I had to risk telling her the truth. How I stand. For if she was a child of GOD she would act loving. I still will be polite to her in passing. But I pray for her to be saved each day.

Sad.

Peace and blessing!

Getting on the scale.

What makes you nervous?

You know. And you don’t have to be overweight either. You could be underweight too. Not too many people like getting on the scale!

Here you go…on a new healthy eating regimen and you see that 3 layer chocolate cake as you walk past the bakery section in your super market.

BAM!

You see it as you were headed to get fresh vegetables and salad fixings. But you did not give in. You passed the test. You have calmed down thanks be yo GOD! Whew!

But the love of your life…your spouse who was walking right behind you saw it too. And he has a weakness for the same thing.

You say we don’t need that. And keep walking. But behind you is the sound of that plastic container being picked up.

In your mind you pray he puts it back down. He does! Being curious I look around and ask why did he put it back.

“The price. I am not paying that kind of money for that cake!

We were saved again through prayer. See no matter what you pray for that is righteous and sincere, you will be answered! Yay!πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎβ€β€β€

Peace and blessings!

Garden no no.

Write about a time when you didn’t take action but wish you had. What would you do differently?

Ever been so busy then forgot you needed to things done and did something different?

Oops, adding too much water or not enough?

When it is really hot in June, your plants can dry up like potato chips. Ask me how I know.

Last year, we happened to miss one day to water the veggie garden. We suffered the consequences along with the poor plants.

Our harvest was not the best. It didn’t match up to the year before. We didn’t get 40 tomato plants that I needed to make sause of them!

Not to mention the salad greens, carrots, and potatoes. It was not cool. What we did get was just enough for every day eating and not enough to store for the upcoming winter. πŸ˜’

We did thank GOD for what we fid harvest. We got some cabbage , chives both onion and garlic, lettuce cucumber and kale. πŸ˜ƒ

So this year, we are using IBC tanks filled with rain water. We have JESUS to depend on. And from praying over it, we were led to 2 very reasonable tanks!

Let’s see how GOD will bless us this year in our garden!

Peace and blessings!

Meeting my new husband on faith.

Describe a risk you took that you do not regret.

I met my wonderful husband on faith and trust in GOD. This is true. And we always remember how we met. Things went so smoothly as though we were gliding on thick, smooth glass!

We met online! I was not looking for anyone at the time. For a man looks for a wife if we are to go by what the Bible wiil say.

When we met online, we knew GOD was in it. It was how everything was falling into place from there on.

Proverbs 18:22

β€œWhoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.”

King James Version (KJV)❀️❀️

We met after a year of online conversations and phone conversations, too. We read scripture together and took notes on what we studied together.

When it was time to meet, we met on Monday and married on a Friday in June! We have been together ever since.

Going by faith and trusting GOD in all you do will never lead you wrong.

Peace and blessings!

Comfort time.

How do you unwind after a demanding day?

When we get home from our day we like to spend quality time with our beloved FATHER GOD in prayer and reading HIS word.

We spend time with our beloved FATHER GOD in prayer. I have heard that the family that stays together prays together. Or vice versa.

There is such comfort and in connecting with GOD and your loved ones. The comfort can only be at this kind of level and depth with faith and trust.

Trust in the LORD and with your family. Bonding. This comfort is like a nice warm bed on a cold night. Your pillows and comforter give you warmth. Protection from the cold. You smile as you doze off to sleep.

Even though you may not actually see our Creator eye to eye, you can feel HIS presence. HE is always with us.

Have a blessed day and night!

Spreading the Gospel of JESUS Christ.

Daily writing prompt
How do you use social media?

I don’t know of anyone who does not want to hear of good new for them. In these days in time through out all forms of social media there is some sort of negative issue floating around. People will need to hear something good for a change.

I know of only one thing that will bring true good new to many who will accept it. And that is to know how much we mankind are loved by our beloved GOD and HIS son JESUS. There was a tremendous act of love that was done over 2023 years ago in Golgotha.

JESUS is the only way to heaven and I share this in social media. There are people who dont know this and I seek to let them know so they will enter heaven too!

Image from: https://www.bible.com/verse-of-the-day/JHN.3.16/81638?version=1

When I need to study the Bible or to get some research done I will use various social media sites from #Facebook, #Instagram, #Twitter and #TicTok. I will “post a praise” and scripture to show where in the Bible I am getting my information.

Those who want to praise with my will not past they will like it. Those who don’t will not. We all have choices on what we want to read and listen to. All I am doing is spreading the good news that GOD has given us a perfect gift of love to accept in JESUS our savior.

Peace and blessings!
