before you...be this...

Wednesday, October 01, 2014



I came across this list yesterday and began to ponder these "ethics". What do I believe that leads me into prayer?...

GOD is my Father...

Why? Jesus Christ, His Son is my Saviour...

and my Lord...

I believe GOD. Praising, confessing, thanksgiving and interceding in prayer to Him are based upon trusting into Him. There is so much more...but the first ethic is valid.

The next four ethics are true as well. It is the sixth one, which to me has more that is needed. Yes, I must choose to really live and not merely exist...

but also I must die to the things of this world in order to be being alive...

apples and honey

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

A little less than a week ago, folks from all around the world were dipping apples into honey and wishing one another Happy New Year..L'Shanah Tovah...

From that celebration through Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement)... ,

which begins this Friday at sun down... ,

is a serious time of self-examination,...

reflection...

and prayer...

These ten Days of Awe are a gift from the Giver of all life...

the One Who love us...

How well do we know Him?...

  Gorgeous! On my way to church yesterday, I noticed that some of the leaves are changing. Others are falling already.

restful thanks...giving

Sunday, September 28, 2014

SONday...the time of rest from labors...

Last Sunday we sang "Forever" (taken from Psalms) by Chris Tomlin...

"Give thanks to the LORD our GOD and KIng. His love endures forever.
And He is good, He is above all things. His love endures forever.
Sing praise!!"

All week long in the midst of whatever I was doing, this Psalm came wafting and alive... Give thanks!!

Here's the link to Chris Tomlin's version...oops...I have to go find it again...found it!

fresh from oven

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Baking day today is what the little poem says for Saturday. But I used to do mine on Friday in preparation. When I was a child, the aroma of bread rising on the old kitchen next-to-the-sink-radiator...

and its arrival just out of the oven...

has stayed with me for nearly seven decades. Like my mother before me I spent years getting out the big bowl and wooden spoon...

and the night before...laying out yeast...

butter...

and eggs...

I also often prepared sourdough starter to set in the pilot-lit oven overnight...

after much mixing and kneading...

letting the dough rise...

and shaping it...

here were some results...

But now, in our old age, I rarely make bread because I know we will gobble it down and gain the weight back. So I save the baking times for special days, company, gift giving and an occasional treat...

Note: My brother once figured out that I would need eight bread makers to create all the loaves I used to do in one day by hand for the family and for gift giving. emoticon

    I haven't made bread in years. I love the kneading and of course the smell of fresh baked!

    I LOVE COOKING AND BAKING. WISH I LEARNED MORE AND HOW TO CAN AS WELL.

  I could barely wait for the loaf to cool enough to cut it and slather it with butter -- REAL butter. I rarely bake bread anymore either, but today I made zucchini bread to thank a neighbor for carting soil over to fill in where I removed the day lilies and brick border, so I could plant grass and make for easier mowing for DH and our neighbor. Also baked chocolate chip cookies for a bachelor at church and a man who is forever making sure we have Lifesavers whenever he passes our pew.

    Great pictures. I,like you, love homemade bread and would also eat the whole loaf.
