I do hope you all are safe and well. For the way you peace and heaven is a long journey. With its potholes and by the road ditches to avoid. Traveling on this road is challenging, but we can make it through with our JESUS.
I want the best for all of mankind. But you all know not all mankind wants the best for all mankind. Greed and power comes out of the heart of many. No love or concern, just wanting to fill their pockets.
I see this in the stores and the rising prices on EVERYTHING! Be it fuel for the body or our vehicles we use. But yet, our incomes for those of us who are not rich are not. There is no fair balance.
I watch and pray.
One of the people I watch to learn how to pressure can is a nice couple on YouTube is #HomesteadHeart. I appreciate those who fear GOD, and will let everyone know that they are a believer! And she does and will mention scripture.
I share the same thoughts on many of what she says. Even though I do not know her personally, she seems to be a sincere Christian woman. Great knowledge on growing and preserving food.
GOD will give us all a talent or gift. And for believers we are lead to lead people to GOD. To share the good news of salvation. And to share encouragement on survival. Part of survival is yo prepare and grow food.
If you have no garden, buy canned store bought food that is on sale. Buy water, tap water may not keep like the bottle water in the store. Soaps for the body and house. Bleach is needed as a sanitizer .
Do what your great-grandparents , and grandparents had done, stock up. Buy a litte at a time or as how you can afford to.
It is better to have and not want, than to want and not have.
Please do share this message with others so that they can not only live by the word of our beloved FATHER GOD, but the blessings of a bountiful harvest on the table of food and the word.

Since as a child, I remember those Sunday dinners that my beloved Grandma made. After Church , I recall the house smelling like good food for the meal was done before we went to church and all we had to do was to heat it up some and eat.
Life was so easy as a child, I tell you. All I had to do was go to Church (I always enjoyed it) go to school, play with friends and cousins, be a good kid and stay out of trouble. And enjoy my Grandmas cooking with my loving family.
I understand that not all people had that kinds of life, and I will say mine was not perfect. There have been some sour kids at school that seemed like something from another planet…but knowing they don’t live with me I was happy about that,
What I loved most was Chicken and Fish. Still do as I think about it. Easy on the tummy more so than beef for me. LOL!
My baked chicken is very easy to do. It is easier than fried. If I can get a whole chicken on sale , I will cut it up like you see below.
Ingredients: Just in case you choose to make it are very simple. Seasoned salt and black pepper to taste. Just sprinkle the seasonings on lightly on your chicken. It can be a whole uncut or cut up like I did. Place your chicken on a buttered baking dish at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Or until it looks like mine where the skin is nice and brown and crispy.
My husband loves potatoes. Loves them mashed even better!
Ingredients: 6 – 3 inch fresh peeled potatoes in a pot just covered with water. Then boiled until tender. Drain water. Add 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup of milk, salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Simple stuff. Just use your mixer to make it smooth and fluffy.
Now we like peas. I just heat up some frozen peas.
As for dessert, I might just make Jello. Depending on the timing and how many other thing I need to get done during the day.
Enjoy your Sunday dinner with your family, friends or only just with the LORD. The LORD is always with us no matter where we are.
“What is an a la carte menu ? If you request just a piece of fried fish at a restaurant, rather than the fish platter that includes French fries and coleslaw, you can say you ordered a la carte, or a single item from the menu. … The opposite of a la carte is a table d’hôte, or “meal served at a fixed price.”
Good morning everyone! I do pray that you all will have a blessed day!
If you listen to people these days in time, may people do not really know what the Bible is about. They have not read it from cover to cover and they seem so confused when a Christian will ask them if they know JESUS. This is after they say something like “I thank GOD for…” And this is in just casual conversation if the other person says they are a believer.
It is hard enough trying your best to be a Christian and follower of JESUS as it is with all of the negative things going on around you. You NEED to be close to GOD and accept JESUS as our savoir. There is no in between of it.
Many feel it is okay to not to deny yourself of an extramarital affair or sex before marriage. Or what is becoming more popular is same sex attraction. Nope. these bad habits will cause so much confusion and hurt feelings more than a little.
See when you fall and mess up with any thing besides sexual temptations, repenting and seeing your wrong will save you more unwanted strife. Even if you are not in a good way in your faith yet, think about this. Sex is a sacred act for a natural man and woman given to us by GOD starting with Adam and Eve.
Sex is sacred. By GOD. Made for us to be fruitful and to multiply the earth.
Genesis 1:28King James Version (KJV)
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Diseases are passed from one person to another through body fluids. You may enjoy what you are doing be it for 5 minutes or what ever. but there are viruses out there that will kill you. Sexually transmitted diseases are not joke.
You can bring that killer home to your spouse. Spread it to your kids as well because if you are the kind of parent that kiss your kids on the mouth, you can give your kids the sores you have on your mouth to your babies. And that would be awful! (Even if you don’t cheat, kissing your child on the lips is not proper)
Marriages break up when the spouse who cheated is infested with what they have brought home to give to them. Even if they dont die from it, the fact that they came home with this issue lets the innocent spouse know what happened if they never has STD’s.
If you are heterosexual , and not married to your sex partner you still can get infected. Even if you are living together, does not mean he or she will not cheat on you. There is no feeling of commitment in a relationship like this. It may work for some, but you are taking a chance of neer getting married. When a person is in a certain level of faith they will not even consider living without benefit of clergy and the law of GOD. No point when you want to do what is right by GOD to live outside of the law.
Same sex attractions is nothing but confusion. They can not procreate as how a natural heterosexual couple can and are designed by GOD to do. They will have to find children from a heterosexual couples natural bond to take as their “own”. This is not really a true natural way as how GOD wanted things ro be. One person in these relationships is acting more as the male and the other as female as in the “mocking” of what a heterosexual couple will do. So in its way, this is NOT being fruitful and multiplying as in GOD’s plan because this same sex attraction can not. It can only indoctrinate not procreate.
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
King James Version (KJV)
People with the mental condition called “Gender dysphoria” is a step up to cause even more trouble for all mankind as these people are altering their appearance to look like the opposite sex than what they were born to be. If a heterosexual person assumes who they are in a relationship is their opposite sex….and finds out this dysphoric person was lying to them it will cause serious complications. Some times with horrible conclusions for the dysphoric person. This mental state of mind can be cured and controlled with medication therapies. But with how the way of the world is , people are into the money aspects of things surgery rules over the medication. The combination surgery, and the medicines , and hormone treatments that these people need to keep up appearances is more costly than visits to psychiatrists and than getting the medicine for the dysphoric mental condition.
Children are affected from the sexual confusions by the parents. Be it from what ever sexual perversion we people might have, our children are affected by it.
Selfish desires create confusions because we decide we know better than GOD. We don’t. Shaking our hand up at our GOD because we were lied to by satan to fall into these temptations. The devil is laughing at us when we don’t listen to GOD.
GOD’s laws were made to give us joy and peace. No confusion as to what we are created to be. No apples wanting to morph into a banana or whatever. No enveying what someone else has because you want it when GOD is giving you what you need and we don’t see it. because we are watching others.
We humans need to read the word, and stay in prayer. GOD’s way is right, pure and loving. We don’t have to worry about if the man we are dating is a natural male or not when we wait on GOD to send us the right man. Although I will say paying attention to bone structure too will let you know if you are looking at a true male or not. A mans bone structure is larger than a womans, such as the hands, feet, shoulders and head shape. Leaning on and waiting on GOD is the best way on all things.
We all should think about all we do and to put GOD in all we do. Once we have accepted JESUS as savior we will want to do GOD’s plan with out giving it a second thought. Not to stay in a sin that is wrong by GOD.
I pray for all people I know to have their hearts opened and to repent who do not follow our beloved JESUS. Who do not love GOD, but love the sn that they are in. I pray that you will ask JESUS to come into your heart and to repent and be saved. To give you the strength to ignore the temptations and lies that the devil was telling you so that you will continue to be unhappy. Or in a false state of happiness. You may not believe me right now, but if you go to a quiet place and pray to JESUS, HE WILL answer you! Your eyes and heart will be opened. I tell you there is no joy on this earth like there is with our beloved FATHER GOD and HIS son JESUS. Nope, there is nothing that closes close at all.
Remember, the devil lies to us all to make us all fall. But JESUS can pick us up. I wrote this topic today for love and peace and for the praise of our FATHER GOD. Not to judge. GOD is the only one who can judge fairly. I am just a messenger of GOD’S word. For we all do sin every single day knowingly or not.
Have a blessed day, and may you all get a blessing from the reading of GOD’s word and the blessings of this blog. Pass it forward so others will get the blessing too!
In the world there are many of us who are single looking for the one who will love us with all of their heart as how we will for them. We will look for this person and at times we will look in the wrong places. In the wrong people. For the wrong reasons.
Trusting in GOD’s plan is perfect because only HE knows what lurks in the heart of all mankind. It is hard to trust in GOD when we are stubborn or the flesh is weak. But for some it seems to be easier to trust in what mankind will say just because we want to be right with GOD.
GOD’s love is pure, unconditional, right and comforting. Trusting in GOD to lead you to the right person for you. GOD will not lead to confusion, or about the mate HE has sent before you. You will feel it happen and it will even feel right 100% in a GODLY way. As it has for me, it will for you as well.
The way how GOD has planned it is so easy, right and most of all sacred. The natural male gender is sacred, the natural woman gender is sacred. These two will then bound as man and wife to be fruitful and to multiply making more mankind and womankind.
Genesis 1 27-28
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:
When you are feeling lonely, the devil will steal this from you , the sacredness of the natural bound for a man and a woman with his distractions to take this joy from you. You will not know what is sacred by GOD and run from it towards what is not. This can happen to you if you do not have GOD leading you, even from as a child. If you do not know about the word and what GOD is telling us all ….you will not know unless someone tells, you pick up the bible to read it for yourself, or through GOD divine intervention.
Trust in the word of GOD to show you how to deal with the ways of the world and the confusion you see going on right now. looking for a mate is a distraction if you are not listening to GOD who is telling to wait as HE is leading you. The people of the bible had the same issues of what we have today, and with GOD’s help they got through it. See there in the bible there are lessons on how to get through these times from the people in the bible.
You want the best one for you that you can trust, who will pray with you and for you at any second when you need it. Who will go to church with you when you go, this is part of fellowship with like-minded people. There is power in prayer for as you need it, someone will need yours as well too.
The ceremony of marriage is sacred too, and with the right mate you will please GOD. GOD loves us so that in this life we can not see all of it until we are before HIM in HIS heaven bowing before HIM giving HIM honor!
Ravi Zacharias Ministries “Just thinking”
Mr Zacharias will explain this better than I can. He explains the sacredness of marriage and the bond of the union of a natural man and woman in a gentle way. For he very well know that many will not agree with the bible. But it is a person’s choice to listen to GOD or not. But as for me and all of my loved ones we choose to listen to GOD, for it is heaven we seek after to be with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS for all eternity long. Here are some links regarding sexuality in the worlds thinking.
Anything out of GOD’s plan is confusion, strife , sadness and the feeling of emptiness. You will see and hear people who do not have trust in GOD complain about the new person in their life and all of the new ones after that because they leaned on their own understanding.
1 Corinthians 7New King James Version (NKJV)
Principles of Marriage
7 Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me:
It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 But I say this as a concession, not as a commandment. 7 For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that.
8 But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am; 9 but if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
Keep Your Marriage Vows
10 Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11 But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife.
12 But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. 13 And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. 16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?
Live as You Are Called
17 But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I [a]ordain in all the churches. 18 Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters. 20 Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it.22 For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called.
To the Unmarried and Widows
25 Now concerning virgins: I have no commandment from the Lord; yet I give judgment as one whom the Lord in His mercy has made trustworthy. 26 I suppose therefore that this is good because of the present distress—that it is good for a man to remain as he is: 27 Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I would spare you.
29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short, so that from now on even those who have wives should be as though they had none, 30 those who weep as though they did not weep, those who rejoice as though they did not rejoice, those who buy as though they did not possess, 31 and those who use this world as not misusing it. For the form of this world is passing away.
32 But I want you to be without [b]care. He who is unmarried [c]cares for the things of the Lord—how he may please the Lord. 33 But he who is married cares about the things of the world—how he may please hiswife. 34 There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband. 35 And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.
36 But if any man thinks he is behaving improperly toward his [d]virgin, if she is past the flower of youth, and thus it must be, let him do what he wishes. He does not sin; let them marry. 37 Nevertheless he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and has so determined in his heart that he will keep his [e]virgin, does well. 38 So then he who gives [f]her in marriage does well, but he who does not give her in marriage does better.
39 A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. 40 But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment—and I think I also have the Spirit of God.
It is better to wait for the GODLY mate than to just pick one on your own understandings and desires. We humans do not know what we are doing to each other or ourselves.
If we were abused at any level , age, place, or never taught what love is or the word of GOD….we will give into complicated relationships. Even if they are just your friends you socialize with besides work or school. Even if it is the current “trend” or what is “popular” with many…. if it is not of GOD leave it alone. Your soul is way more important than a weakness of the flesh or a lie of something you think you want to hear.
I will tell you, I as a natural-born woman did want to be married and have kids. But I had known it is better for a woman to wait for GOD to send the right man to me. And not the one I wanted through the flesh. The flesh only sees the cover of what is really in the heart. GOD sees what the heart truly is. A woman who trusts in the LORD doesn’t chase after a man to be her husband ever. Women trust in the LORD who will bring the man who is to be your husband. Men, trust in the LORD who is leading you to be your wife.
Proverbs 18:22King James Version (KJV)
22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.
GODS love is unconditional at all times. The right love that will show us the right love. And when we marry someone who is GODLY this love is in them too. This is why it is best to trust in the LORD at all times. GOD will lead us right.
Trust in GOD, trust in HIS beloves son JESUS. For without JESUS the mediator between GOD and man we can not get into heaven.
I do pra that this was a blessing to you, and may you have a blessing from the reding and the sharing of the word of in this blog and the blog itself. Have a blessed day!
31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
My salmon cakes cooking up.
Good Sunday morning to you all, or what ever time it is for you right now!
Many families now a days spend their time away from each other during the weekdays and the weekends they catch up and have a good meal at the table with each other. But when they are grown and have to take on their own responsibilities as adults….things might change and so enjoy your times together when you can.
My baked veggies in some butter.
I enjoy praying and reading the scripture with my family and then having a good meal. Being filled with the peaceful spirit of the LORD and a full tummy is a total feeling of peace and comfort for me.
My grandmother was an excellent cook and no one I know can or could have cooked as well as she could. When we had family dinners , relatives we have not seen for a while would come and leave full. I remember seeing the men eat so much that they sat in the living room loosening their belts and then falling asleep. Everyone was a hard worker and when we all got together it was either in the church or at the house catch up on things.
Deuteronomy 12:7English Standard Version (ESV)
7 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.
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.
My fruit filled cupcakes with icing.
By the time dessert was ready to be eaten, most of the family was content feeling, but when “the eyes are bigger than the tummy” things lead to the belt loosening thing and falling asleep in the living room.
Everyone said my Grandmom was a good cook. But you can tell that when she didn’t have any leftovers to speak of to put away. My Grandma was a good woman who loved the LORD and raised up her kids to do the same.

25. Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near
Enjoy your new year with those who truly do love you and look out for you. Do not associate with those who envy you and say evil things about you when you are not around. They do not share the heart of JESUS and share the heart of the evil one. It doesnt matter if they are family. For they are people and make their own choices on how they want to live. With GOD the FATHER as the lead, or the fallen one who is lost.
You need no distractions on you path to righteousness. None.
Be joyful, encourage others and particularly for others who are followers of JESUS. For they maybe going through a trail that is weighing them down and you may not even be aware of it. if you are being to self centered at the moment to not see it. Not everyone physically shows what they are going through, nor speak about to others. They may keep things to themselves as they are going through what they are going through.
Enjoy your meal with your family, loved ones, and friends. May this blog post encourage you and bless you as you read and share the word of GOD. #passitforward!
