Being thankful every day to GOD!

1 Thessalonians 5:18

“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

King James Version

Good morning everyone, or the time you are able to read this blog. I do hope and pray that you all will be able to enjoy your day!

This 2019, as we get to the “Turkey Day” we will gather our loved ones together at the table and enjoy a good meal. Yes , it is not a Christian holiday, but to those of us who are one we make it so by giving thanks to our GOD in unity with our friends and family. Food is used as sort of like a bonding and enjoyment to the celebration.

But we all know we should give thanks to our beloved FATHER GOD for all of the blessings he has given us our whole life long each and every single day of life.

GOD is good, loving and patient.

For those of you who are able to be with your family in a nice warm home, in clean clothes, good health and a good paying job you are thankful but do not realize just how blessed you are. There are so many places where people are suffering . Not just AFRICA as some people will be quick to say off the top of their heads, but this is ALL over the world were people suffer.

You can walk down the streets of Manhattan New York on 5th ave and see homeless people or ride the subways. These people are still someones child, mother, father, brother, sister, relative or friend. So to walk by and disrespect a person when they are down is not GODLY. We should do what we can to help in the GODLY way for people, not just during the holiday seasons, but all seasons do people need help.

I would love to one day , GOD willing to have a shelter for women and children separately for the single moms, one for single men alone, and one for families so they are not separated or broken up. Such as the dad sent to another location from the wife and children.

Let us count our blessings. I bet you can count up to about 100 if you took the time to do so. Once we do let us thank GOD for those we remember and for those we have forgotten too.

I am so grateful to be able to share my love of GOD with you all as one of my blessings!

Psalms 107:1

“O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.”

King James Version (KJV)

The squeaky door you hear in the background is my husband coming into the kitchen to see how dinner is coming along! LOL! This is the baked mac and cheese about to go into the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes or until done.

Ephesians 5:20

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”

King James Version (KJV)

I usually leave the turkey in longer than when I see the pop-up. The skin has to be buttery crispy for us. Not soggy, but the meat still being tender.

Colossians 3:15 – 3:17

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

James 1:17

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

King James Version (KJV)

Philippians 4:6

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

King James Version (KJV)

These are the spices I like to use. Maybe the brands will change, but the spice itself does not change. Just the company that makes it from time to time.
This was nice and juicy and hubby made gravy from the turkey juices.

2 Corinthians 9:15

“Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.”

King James Version (KJV)

Psalms 106:1

“Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.”

King James Version (KJV)

Whipped potatoes with butter and not cream, some salt and black pepper. We prefer it this way, so creamy!

Psalms 105:1

“O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.”

King James Version (KJV)

Stove top stuffing. Husband likes it and it saves me time out of the kitchen too.
Hubby likes this brand, and that’s good. Less to do in th kitchen.

Psalms 20:4

“Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.”

King James Version (KJV)

Homemade cranberry sauce from whole cranberries!

Psalms 30:12

Now viewing scripture range from the book of Psalms chapter 118:1 through chapter 118:18…

Apples , cherries and raisins sauteed in butter, brown sugar and apple juice until thickened some to add to yogurt for fruit parfaits.
Vanilla yogurt and sauteed fruit combo.

Colossians 3:17

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”

King James Version (KJV)

The one thing I didn’t make from scratch beside the stuffing was the iced Arizona Zero Green tea. All of the main meal I made , except for the tea. I suppose it was not challenging enough for me to make! LOL! But I do happen to like this brand of tea. All pictures of the food are mine as I was getting the meal done. I will share the recipe if enough of you ask.

Psalms 100:4

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”

King James Version (KJV)

Let us all pray for all of the people we know and don’t know. For we do not know what situations they are in at this time. Some people are quite about what they are going through for not wanting to let others know for pride or whatever regarding if they need help in getting food. Share what you can and feel that the LORD is compelling you to do. Not what any person will demand that you do, listen to GOD and he will aim you in the direction you need to be to help someone.

Praise and glory be to GOD now and forever and all of eternity long. Have a safe, blessed, happy thanks giving . Please pass this blog post forward to others so they can be blessed as well too.

Peace!!!

Well done! You can come on in! Matthew 25:23

Print this picture out to hang up and use to remember to keep on the right path to heaven.

Good morning everyone, I do pray that you will have a blessed, happy, and healthy day! For GOD is so loving and healing! Ask me how I know!

When I think about the people I am close to as in my loved ones, family, friends, and those I meet in passing I do hope that we will all meet up in heaven when it is time. I would not want to see anyone not make it in.

I do pray for my enemies and put them into my prayer list too. I am hoping to have all people in there I have met besides the people I have already met.

2 Peter 3:9

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

King James Version (KJV)

I tell you all, that it is sad when you see people that will not come to JESUS for help for they assume that the sins they are in are so great that they cannot make it in. Let GOD decide that, just repent! The devil has lied to you long ENOUGH!

Read the Bible about one of the disciples named Paul. (aka Saul the persecutor and Saul or Tarsus) These links will explain in more detail. But when reading anything pertaining to the Bible always have your Bible to refer to. Such as the KJV and the NKJV. https://www.gotquestions.org/Saul-of-Tarsus.html , https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_the_Apostle , and https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/apostle-paul-biography-and-profile/

Saul who was later known as Paul was a persecutor of the Church, doing evil to both Jew and Roman peoples. This man changed and became an Apostle . See, he was forgiven. He repented and was then know as Paul later on .

Accepting JESUS as savior, doing the good loving will of the LORD and repentance will get Paul into heaven and being told “Well done”.

“Well done!” I know I want to hear it. I know I want to see my loved ones who has crossed over there in heaven as well too. And for all of the people I know be it here online or face to face. It will be good when we meet in heaven in the presence of GOD the Almighty, JESUS and all of the Angels too.

Don’t listen to the lies of the devil any longer, listen to GOD and HIS ever loving son JESUS who speak the truth! Repent and do good. Read the Bible, for the people who repented from sin were the ones who wound up doing right by GOD. Showing us all that we can change and do GOD’S will!

Have a blessed day, pass it forward this blog post and the words of the Bible in it so others will be blessed too!

Peace!

FASST Fine Arts Society Of The Southern Tier

Good morning or whatever time it is during the day for you all! I do pray you will all have a blessed day!

Being a Christian is hard work when you want to do what is right. Being a Christian artist is more of a challenge because many artists I meet in conversation are secular and do not have the same thoughts as I do. And when I meet one like in the organization I am a member of, it is like a breath of fresh air!

In the area mall the Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier aka “FASST” I met up with Barbara and her brother Douglas as they were in the FASST store front as it were their turn to manage the store. As it turns out, she and her husband have a ministry as well!

She is an artist along with her brother and this was good to know. Not all of us artists feel we need to leave GOD out of our lives , and in this world when you want to do clean hearted drawings, it will make those who want to draw things not worth repeating.

People fascinate me because I care about their souls. I draw tracts, Biblical themes , portraits and couples. I do draw still life, but I would rather take photos of flowers to get the full impact of the color of how it is. That’s how I feel about it right now for what I draw, for I maybe led by the HOLY SPIRIT to draw something else.

I do love to enter my drawings in art events. These pictures you see are from last months showing in the FASST art gallery in Binghamton.

Native american man drawn from a photo. I prefer to draw from a photo so I can take my time drawing the subject.

Artwork was in one of the local newspapers too.

Always stay humble while sharing your work. I hope I always will be. My husband and other people say I am and that is good. Once you think you are better than others that’s when you are shown you are wrong. I strive to be good and better than I was the last time I drew anything. I draw better from realife and Photos. I am able to take my time and pay attention to the lines of the subject. For when I do quick sketches it will be for children’s books like I have done for the Brooklyn Arts Sketchbook Project. That will be in another blog with those pictures.

Here is a video of the lastest Art Gallery showing.

Very short video made of the Art Gallery showing for August 2019 to September 2019.

Once I become known in GODS timing I will be able to make a living from it as GOD sees fit. So with that being said, I am not there yet. But I will not give up for I depend on GOD to lead the way.

Ephesians 6:11

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

King James Version (KJV)

That’s what we need to do when we need to get through the nonsense of the world. I pray that in all I do, any blog post I do will encourage others to do GOD’s will in all that you do. For by faith is how we walk, with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS giving a loving guidance at all times.

Peace!

Christians encouraging each other! Yay!

Sharing the love of our JESUS!

Good morning, or at whatever time you are reading this blog!

I do pray that you all will have a blessed day, and if you can be able to enjoy the good weather in your area.

Sharing your faith with others is good for those who share it, and the ones who receive it. No matter at what level of faith you are in at the moment. We all need to be encouraged and feel that HOLY SPIRIT bond with a fellow believer. It is like getting a breath of fresh air.

As you know in these days and times it is getting harder and harder to avoid temptations of this earth. When many people see good as bad, and bad as good. They celebrate things of the evil one as though it is fun and right to do. Not reading the word and following the distractions of the world that will turn you away from GOD will leave one confused. Such as this celebration that many call halloween. It is not from GOD by any means. Halloween info. I will get into more info about it at another time. But for right now I will share this.

Hallowed definition: adjective. regarded as holy; venerated; sacred: Hallowed be Thy name; the hallowed saints; our hallowed political institutions.

ween/wēn/Learn to pronounceverbARCHAIC

  1. be of the opinion; think or suppose.”he, I ween, is no sacred personage”

Halloween/Hallow-wean.

This Is why I feel the need to be around those that are like minded in the love of GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS. Those that do not love GOD will hate you because they hate GOD and JESUS for reasons of their own. They do not realize what they are doing. Pray for them please. We maybe the only humans around who are praying for them.

In the organization called the “Fine Artists of the Southern Tier”, as a member there is little chance to talk about the LORD there. But at the store front that the Society rents out in the mall where the artists can display their artwork I did get a chance to do so with 2 members! It was so refreshing to talk to them about the LORD!

Upon our conversation, I find out that they also have a blog! And a Youtube video channel as well. The blog page is: http://www.LivingWordsForLife.org

Here is a video from 2015 that is still good at this time because it is GODS words. Here is the link to the YouTube channel and video.The sister in the LORD from the art organization’s husband is the man in the video.

1 Peter Chapter 4

8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

9 Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

10 As every man hath received the gift, [even so] minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

Encourage each other with a JESUS heart.

Proverbs 27:17

“Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”

King James Version (KJV)

I do hope that I may have encouraged you all that have read this blog. There are people out there that do love the LORD. Not everyone follows satan and the ways of the world. And let GOD lead you at all times, in all you do. Satan will deceive everyone he can, look how he bothered our JESUS when he fasted in the mountains for 40 days? But JESUS put satan in his place with the word of GOD.

Matthew Chapter 4:1-4

1Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

3And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Be blessed and pass this blog forward so others will be blessed by the reading of the word of GOD in this blog too!

Peace!

Seeking the light of GOD!

In the midst of confusion we all need his light.

Our sunflowers are following the sun!

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Good day and or night everyone.

I do hope that you all are having a blessed day, for this is the day that the LORD GOD has made for us to enjoy.

In life we all will go through a struggle and need our GOD to get past, and through it. Some of us seek after the LORD JESUS the son of GOD as how sunflowers follow the sun. We follow the son of GOD our JESUS all of our lives as best as we can. For we know we can not make it through this world without our ever loving savior JESUS.

Many of us will just do things our way and wonder how we got into a mess. Blaming others for the choices we make. But right know I am speaking about those who believe there is GOD but do not have a loving relationship with GOD and HIS son JESUS. This is a choice they have made, to believe but not let it go any further than that.

Their minds are clouded with confusion, being mislead into which direction they need to go. Lacking spiritual discernment, which we all do need.

“The fundamental definition for Christian discernment is a decision making process in which an individual makes a discovery that can lead to future action. In the process of Christian spiritual discernment God guides the individual to help them arrive at the best decision. Their minds are clouded with confusion, being mislead into which direction they need to go. Lacking spiritual discernment, which we all do need.” Wikipedia

1 Corinthians 2:14

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 

King James Version (KJV)

To have the LORD guiding you through the paths in your life is a must. For HE does know what is a head of you on your journeys every single day/hour/minute/second of your life. We all need to trust HIM to guide us on a safe journey in life so we can always land on our feet. No worries, just going through life day to day to avoid being confused. Or mislead. There are spirits that are not of GOD too, so this is why we NEED to be connected to the HOLY FATHER and HIS son JESUS.

1 John 4:1

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Light/

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” 

King James Version (KJV)

There are those who say they love GOD but will do mean things to people without any reservation that is is wrong to do. They only label themselves as Christians so they can deceive others. Not what GOD has planned any of us all. They are deceivers and hate GOD. Lead you going in a direction you think is right but it is not. Distracting you from GOD. GOD maybe telling you to leave certain people alone and you decide to have it your way. Not understanding as to why you need to take the advice of the FATHER. Until you are the victim of the nonsense they put you through. You have learned a hard lesson on how you should have listened to what you mind told you. It was GOD warning you.

Follow GODS light to lead you out of the darkness.

John 9:5 – As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Stay in prayer and let JESUS be your “flashlight” on high beams to the right road to be on to be saved, safe and sound to our FATHER GOD. The world is a place with no light without our ever loving GOD and HIS son JESUS.

Have a blessed day, be safe and sound, stay in prayer so you can HEAR what our FATHER GOD is saying to you, what our JESUS is saying to you so you wont stubble and fall. Even though JESUS will pick you up if you do.

Share this blog with others so that they can hvae a blessing too from reading the word of GOD. Pass it forward!

1 Corinthians 12:12-27 One body and many members of Christ!

1 Corinthians 12:27

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

King James Version (KJV)

Good morning, afternoon and evening to you all!

I do pray that you all will have a blessed day and that our GOD will be with you and give you all of the comfort that you will need! And I do pray for all of those who do not seek after GOD and HIS son JESUS right now that will from here on. For if you are lead here today, I pray that GOD will give you the answers that you need to give you insight and faith in HIM to be a member of the body of Christ. Amen!!

We who are followers of JESUS are in the body, making us one family of GOD. There are no man made barriers that divide us from one group of people to another. We are one unit. Forget about the skin color, where a person came from, how little a person has, what clothes they have on, their height or weight, what language they speak. How much education they have or how little they have. Or anything else that man has thought of to divide people from being united in Christ!

I thank GOD for JESUS!!!! JESUS is the savior for all mankind!!!

Getting past the stereotypes we judge people by, I feel that once we do that and redo our thinking to think Christ like we wont care about the ways of the world. For how they judge us with their own ways. We will see a person, a soul with flesh, and to focus on the soul getting past the outside appearance to their heart. Doing so with GODLY discernment.

1 Corinthians 12:27

24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 

25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 

26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

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

28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 

29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 

30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

Pastor Douglas J. Helton of Calvary Baptist Church, St. Charles Iowa.
http://www.calvary-baptist-church.com/

Being in the body of Christ we are compassionate towards one another at all times, knowing that the person in front of you has Christ in them. We can not divide our selves and destroy each other and assume GOD will not see what is in our hearts. Or to do evil in the dark and closed places assuming GOD does not have the power to know all. GOD does know all.

The sermon that my husbands friend, Pastor Helton is teaching here in the 8/11/19 message is about just that. Any hurtful words, actions or thoughts GOD know all about it. Pastor Helton speaks of Galatians chapter 5:22-23.

Galatians 5:22-23 KJV

22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

KJV: King James Version

Let us get more into the practice of doing what this verse mentions about the 9 fruits of the spirit. We will then have more inner peace with in us. Knowing that we are doing GODS will and are spreading the peace that is in us to others.

Galatians chapter 5 22-23

May you all receive a blessing fro reading GOD’s word in this post. Please do share this message to others so they can read it and be blessed to from GOD and to know our beloved savior Christ Jesus! Pass it forward!

Peace!

Instead of complaining, we need to give thanks to our loving GOD instead!

Complaining and Murmuring : KJV – King James Version – Bible Verse List. “Neither murmur ye, as some of them [ancient Israelites] also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.” “Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.Aug 3, 2015

Good morning everyone, or whatever time it is for you right now!

I have heard a good sermon from my husbands Pastor friend Doug Helton of Calvary Baptist Church in Iowa. It had more than one message in it, but the main message was about how we all at times will complain when we should be giving thanks to our beloved GOD for all things. See the Pastors video below.

Pastor Douglas J. Helton Calvary Baptist Church St. Charles, Iowa
http://www.calvary-baptist-church.com/

It is an easy habit to get into to complain, and a very hard one to get out of. Babies, Children, Teens, and Adults in all stages of life complain. Without a second thought to it. Not realizing we should not be doing it or are doing it.

We are blessed by GOD’s by will of the things HE has given us. As you read this blog, you are blessed. You have the life GOD gave you, healthy enough to be able to read the blog, the ability to read, to see it, and to understand it, to have the equipment that allows you to read this blog along with having the internet service. So that alone is at least 7 blessings right there! (add a smiley face here.)

So let’s continue to count our blessings each day. You will see GOD as been blessing you all the while.

With complaining, we will at times only see the annoying thing(s) 1st and not the true loving blessings that our GOD has given us. Our GOD does not like that from us to have this mindset. It is like when our earthly Dad will cook a good meal and when were hungry. It was a nice plate of veggies, grains and protein with some freshly squeezed juice with ice in it. Then we complain that the ice was too cold or not cold enough in the juice!

We all complain at times, and we complain about other people complaining! When you are around people who complain and you are trying not to, and you hear their complaints it can rub off on you. So then it can have you pick up their bad habits of complaining and not even realize it too. This is something the Bible will mention in these scripture below about us complaining.

Part of Pastor Doug Helton’s sermon on 9-1-19.

As I had thought about the message, I want to challenge myself as not to complain, or when it is at all possible to walk away from a person politely when they are complaining or point out the good in what they are talking about. Such as if they have an issues like the child did with the meal mentioned above…..I could say “at least you have ice. “The drink would not be cool without any ice at all.”

GOD knows what we need and we need to accept the current blessings so we will get more each day. Enjoy your day, and challenge yourself as to train your thoughts on not to complain but to give thanks to our GOD for all that HE gives us at all times. Stay in prayer as you go through your day to avoid complaining, because it will be very hard/impossible not to have the LORD in it to help you.

Praise and glory be to YOU dear beloved FATHER GOD at all times now and to and through all of eternity long!

May you all have a blessed day, please pass this blog forward with the words of GOD in it to others so they will be blessed as well too. Pass it forward! Stay blessed and know that our GOD loves us all!

Peace!
