Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. A season for the cold weather.

How do you feel about cold weather?

I like the cold weather. But it doesn’t like me. If it gets to below 40 degrees, it is time for my heavy winter coat. 😐

The cold weather is good and bad. It looks beautiful when there is a snowfall that covers the trees in such a way that it looks like glass when the sun shines on them!

I know GOD created seasons for a reason. But it is beyond human understanding. And we can only assume as to why we have cold weather.

Cold weather does have its advantages. There are no flies , knats, or mosquitoes to bother you when you are outside. 😄

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – 3:8

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

I would love to be in temperatures of 65 to 75 degrees all year. I am happy to shelter, food, good health, and ways to keep warm when it is cold.

Peace and blessings ❤️

Broken bones make good soup. Recipe below.

Have you ever broken a bone?

No. To the prompt question. Thank GOD ❤️

For thank GOD no one in my family has had a broken bone on my side of the family or in my husband’s that I am aware of.

Soup bones came to my mind.

The bones that get broken are chicken, pork, lamb, fish, turkey, or beef. I am sorry to say that for anyone who eats meat. I have tried to for about a year. It didn’t set well with, and I lost energy. 😕

But for this recipe from “serious eats” were cut. Still tasty though 😋

Roasted Marrow Bones

Prep5 mins

Cook20 mins

Active20 mins

Total25 mins

Serves6 servings


  • 2 to 3 pounds (907g to 1360g) beef marrow bones, split lengthwise or cut crosswise into 2-inch segments
  • 1 cup (28g) pickled flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) champagne vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Toasted slices of bread
  • Pickled Mustard Seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (232ºC). Place marrow bones, marrow side up, on a tray or in an ovenproof skillet. Roast until bones are lightly browned, about 20 minutes. (Some fat will render from the marrow, but majority of marrow should stay in the bone.)
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss parsley with vinegar and olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle bones with salt and pepper. Serve bones immediately, with toasts, pickled mustard seeds, and parsley salad.

Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

King James Version (KJV)

Pray for in all things to GOD for HIS protection at all times in all we do. Pray for excellent health and healing when you need it! Stay safe and sound. And may the only broken bones you see will be like in this recipe. (Even though these were cut! 🙂)

Peace and blessings ❤️
