For thanksgiving 2013:
I used splenda instead of sugar and, added evaporated milk, I had enough to make two pies..

When most people experience headaches, joint pain, or other aches in their body, they turn to aspirin or another anti-inflammatory drug.
Aspirin was originally derived from the herbs meadowsweet and willow bark and later synthesized by the pharmaceutical industry to create a patentable product, which they do to increase profits. When natural compounds are synthesized in a laboratory and then marketed as drugs, they typically cause side-effects that the food and herb sources do not usually cause.
Unfortunately the list of side-effects on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (also called NSAIDs) is lengthy and not worth the risk for most people. It ranges from gastrointestinal irritation to death. Fortunately, there are many foods that contain salicylates or salicylic acid, which is the active ingredient in aspirin.
Before you pop that pill, consider the many fruits, vegetables, and herbs that contain natural aspirin:
Currants (including dried currants)
Licorice (the herb, not the candy)
Meadowsweet (an herb)
Plums and prunes
Turmeric (the spice)

God Is On Our Side
The poorest image we can have of God is that of a stern, angry judge sitting on a bench high above us with a gavel in hand, reading over our good and bad deeds. That’s called “bench-judgment.” It’s human judgment—which is unreliable.
Make no mistake about it: God is not weak or wishy-washy. God knows what sin is. But God is with us, and he will do whatever he can to help us. The one thing God cannot and will not do is force anyone to love him.
Love cannot be forced. But God cannot be fooled. God is the truth.
-by Friar Vurst, OFM
I think he knows what is in our hearts and in our minds, as I wait
for a job opening, I just pray and, I believe and Trust in Jesus.

I have had a job at a dept. store since Oct. 9 2012 but, now I don't know for sure if I can continue working with the dept. manager. She is rude, belittles me and, today I will put in my two week notice. It is difficult but unless they can assign me another area to work in I will have to leave. I just feel I don't have to do anything I don't want too. I have tried to be a good worker and do what I am told all the time and, still do the others jobs.
This is just a small step down the road of life....I will keep walking with the Lord.
