Praying Scripture

This is such a good video that I wanted to share it with you.  It talks about praying God's word over you and your situation.  Praying scripture is praying God's will.

Have a great day!

Oatmeal Banana Bites | Easy no-bake snack for kids

I love this recipe.  I think it would be an easy one to fix up for my hubbie. I will try to let you know how they turn out.


Ok!  I made these and they were a winner.  They were quick and easy to make and my husband loved them.  And these are pretty healthy too.

Update to Irma Storm In Florida

I thought I would give an update on our storm struggles.  We actually came out better than a whole lot of people.  The destruction and suffering of people to our west and down south of us was devastating.  It is in fact still going on.

We had stayed the first night with my brother and his family.  We were all safe.  The next morning an electric pole had fallen across the fence.  But at that time the electric was still on at their home.

We went back to our mobile home and were very thankful that no trees had fallen on our home.  There were several large oak trees down as we came up our dirt road.  But they were not on anyone's home. After three days our electricity was turned on.  We are so thankful.

A week later and people are still waiting to get their electric turned on.  So many people are still suffering and without a home to return to.

Please pray for the people who lost family and friends in the destruction.

Making an old world sour dough starter

I have been wanting to try making starter dough bread.  This seems to be the easiest recipe for me to understand.  I hope to try it soon.  I will let you know how it comes out.  I have heard the sour dough bread is supposed to be healthier than other bread.

A Storm Is Brewing

This week has been a waiting game for us.  We are waiting for the storm to hit.  Or maybe miss us.  Waiting to see what will happen is the hardest thing to do.  It kind of grates on your nerves.

We are doing what we can to prepare for the hit.  Picking up objects in the yard.  Buying extra food.  Storing up water.  Trying to keep the clothes washed up.  Which is close to impossible around here.

Right now things are calm.  At least the weather is calm.  But by tomorrow the wind will probably start picking up. Then the rain should start.  By Sunday we will probably feel the storm.  Hopefully it will not be as bad as they are thinking.

So many people are evacuating Florida.  It looks like a mass exodus on the highways going up and out of the state.  Hopefully we will be able to ride it out in our own home.  Whatever happens we will be ok.  We will do the hard work that needs to be done.  We will pick up the pieces and put things back in order.  Maybe even rebuild if necessary.  

We trust in God to take care of us and guide us.  I hope everyone out there will be safe this coming week.

Take care and God bless.

Soaked Buttermilk Bread

This looks like healthy delicious bread.  I want to try this.

Update:  I tried a recipe similar to this one and it turned out so great.  And it was easy to do.  I thought it was going to be hard but it wasn't.  It turned out very moist and good.

"Being defeated is often only a temporary condition.  Giving up is what makes it permanent."  by Marilyn vos Savant.  I found this on the Dollar Stretcher site.  

This actually helped me this morning.  I was feeling like I had been run over by a moose.  But after reading this I know I can get through it and win.  It is mind over feelings.

Ever had a morning like that?  Just getting out of bed is a chore?  Then facing the ones you love is even harder.  Just get one thing accomplished.  Maybe that might be pouring a cup of coffee and getting it in the cup and not on the counter.  Now you are on a roll.

Have a great Labor Day!
