A Thanksgiving story:

Below is a “devotional” – some Thanksgiving thoughts that were passed on to me by someone who is very special to me.  It is a very thought provoking and convicting devotional. John bellows out in his strong, masculine, in control voice and gathers everyone in the house for a quick devotional and time of praise before the food is served: Alright!  Everyone gather in here please!  Kids, get in here right now!  We are going to spend some time being thankful today. (thinking: I wasn't thankful last year when my pay was cut.  I wasn't thankful last year when all of my children were sick at once.  I wasn't thankful last year when someone doublecrossed me in business.  I wasn't thankful last year when we couldn't afford to go on vacation. I wasn't thankful last week when I tripped on a toy and yelled at my kids.  I wasn't thankful last week when the toilet overflowed.  I wasn't thankful last week when the guy in front of me made me late.  I wasn't thankfu

To Whom Shall I Go Today?

To whom shall I go today?   Jesus Christ.  He has the words of eternal life.  There is no other way like His.  there are no other words like His.  There is no other One like Him.          ~Vance Havner in Day by Day P. 244 John 6:68  Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

Awesome Yogurt

I had to make a trip to the chiropractor yesterday.  Yes, it was time – headaches again, neck and should pain, lower back out.  So glad I went.  Feeling a little better.  We were talking about probiotics and he gave me a recipe for home made yogurt.  I have made other recipes, but this one was by far the easiest.  It came out rich and creamy and tasted very good.  If you are interested the recipe is below: Yogurt If making 2 quarts of yogurt use 12 Tbs. of starter. Use natural yogurt (Stoney Field is a good one) as your starter the first time you make yogurt.  Each time you make yogurt, reserve enough for your next starter. Bring milk slowly to 200 degrees  and hold that temp for 5 min.  Stir occasionally to keep the milk from scorching.  Remove from heat and let the milk cool down to 120 degrees.  Retain 120 degree temp and add yogurt starter to the milk and whisk.  Starter blends in better at 120 degrees.  Vanilla can be added to enhance the taste. Pour into glass jars and seal.

Another Smile

One of our Grand Daughters seemed to be continually making a lot of gibberish talk.  She does this often and sometimes for long periods of time ignoring all else.  One day her daddy was scolding her for this and firmly told her to stop.  She looked at him and said, “Daddy, I am just trying to talk in Portuguese.”    By the way they are first term missionaries to Brazil.

Today I am Thankful for:

He gives me rest, hope, and satisfaction. Psalms 131:2  Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child. He gave me the power to become one of His children. John 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Praise and Magnify the LORD!
