Wonderful White Bread

Hey everyone, Today you can make Wonderful White Bread in your bread maker. I was sick of not having fresh bread whenever I wanted it, so... I figured out my own recipe that I could make once a week at home. Here is the recipe and pictures. The Bread Making Machine should be set on BASIC or WHITE BREAD. I had all the ingredients at home except for the Active Yeast, But all the ingredients most people have lying around in their pantries. RECIPE: 1-cup Water, 1/2 pkg. Yeast, 1- Tbs.+1/2 tsp. Sugar, 1/2 tsp. Salt, 1 Tbs. Shortening, 2 1/2 cups Flour. Throw all the ingredients in the bread maker in the same order as the recipe reads. And Voila!! YUMMY hot bread in approximately three hours! Not to mention how wonderful your house will smell !! Please note, keep any unused bread in the frig bagged tightly. Because of no preservatives, the bread will mold in a couple days if left out. P.S. This bread can be sliced thick for the worlds greatest FRENCH TOAST Yummy again !!! I'm going to make the french toast right now!!

Conduit of Grace

So here is what He said to me today. It always catches me off guard when I hear Him whispering softly in my ear. The Word said, "Conduit of Grace..." I'm like, "What did you say? What is a conduit?" I pondered and said," I don't even know what that is..." I actually had to look up the word in the dictionary. Today I chose the bible dictionary. The reason I chose the bible dictionary is because I was seriously doubting that God was saying the word conduit, I thought I had heard all the words spoken in the bible. The word conduit was located in the bible dictionary, I was getting excited now because he was going to tell me something that I needed to hear and possibly share with all of you! The word CONDUIT means; a channel for conveying water from it's source to the place where it was delivered. The word was described in the bible as an aqueduct. King Hezekiah had constructed an aqueduct to bring water into his city. His enemies then could not cut off his water supply during times of war. He was a super smart King. "Wow " I said, "that is pretty cool, so what does this have to do with me?"uh, I now have to look up GRACE. So I did... Putting the phrase together now would reveal what He was trying to say to me. I have to blog this because I've been in His presence for the past 4 hours now putting this puzzle together. I'm soooo sharing this incite with you. I will not want to let this one get away. Are you ready? It's kinda deep, (CONDUIT OF GRACE) I am a deep, straight, groove purposely cut by the Masters hands. I'm called out to convey to the nations & peoples the moral practical cleansing effected by the removal of defilement by our taking heed to the (water)Word of God in heart, life and habit. I am called to a spiritual ministry that gives a drink to the converted. The MISSION is to inform them of the truth of Gods Word(the water). Teaching them about the power that is theirs through JESUS CHRIST by the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit will enable them to understand the sustaining influence, that they have been given, to supernaturally be able to persevere in the Christian Life. I will teach the precious ones about their security in Christ. Their Salvation is eternal and is maintained by JESUS CHRIST throughout the entirety of their christian life as they live it hear on earth. They cannot lose their salvation.(many people are afraid of this false teaching) The token proof of Gods Grace is the glue that "holds us" through our suffering unto eternal life. All our risks, humiliations, and trials are opportunities for CHRIST to demonstrate His power and presence in and through us. We are all called by the same God and the same Power, Resurrection Power, The same power that caused Christ to rise to life from the grave...

To Stage Or Not To Stage This Is the Question

Do you need to sell your house? This is the first question. If the answer is NO then start to PRAISE THE LORD! You are favored! You did something right! You are able to enjoy being in a stable environment! Some of us have found ourselves in a position that is very unfamiliar! The bottom feels like it is falling away... We are experiencing a trial. We find ourselves going through a faith building refining process. Our dreams of home ownership have gone out of control. Now we are faced with the question...What can we do to help sell our dream homes fast? I have the answer... Hire a Home Stager!! That's right, a home stager can help you see what is missing from your home selling equation...of, selling vs not selling. There are many factors in not being able to sell your home. "The Look Factor." Your house must look good, smell good, and be in good condition. If you want a professional opinion then HIRE ME. You will first need a consult. With every consult I will come to your home and do a walk through. I will put together a home staging check off list that you can accomplish yourself or you can hire me and my team to stage your home to get it to the best selling condition. For the Month of July, I am doing half price on consults, which by the way is ridiculous; Regular$50.00 now $25.00. Call me @ 941-747-3857 hm. My cell; 941-545-4871. Or e-mail @ CALL ME. P.S. If you just want a consult to update your existing home that you are not selling, I will help you with these needs as well.

The Answer for a Troubled Marriage

What does a true marriage look like? Is it possible to reach the awesome reality of true marriage here on earth? For Christians the answer is YES! The Holy Spirit will enable us. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. (Phil 4:13) Submitting to another person is a fact of life. Anywhere you go someone is submitting to the will of someone else. So then why is it so difficult to submit to one another in the marriage relationship? We submit to our bosses or to people who are in authority over us. The bible makes it crystal clear when it comes to submission. We follow Christs example. Isn't He good! He always is our example. He shows us how to do it. Submitting to someone doesn't mean becoming a doormat. Jesus-at whose name EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, in heaven and on earth and under the earth" (Philippians 2:10)- submitted his will to the Father, and we must honor Jesus by following His example. First, when we submit to God, we become more willing to obey His command to submit to others, WE CHOSE to subordinate our rights to theirs. In the marriage relationship, BOTH parties husband and wife are called to submit. We must learn to work, love and obey Christ together, as one unit. For the wife, this means willingly following her husbands leadership in Christ. For the husband, it means putting aside his own interests in order to care for his wife. Submission will not be a problem for those who are committed to their marriage relationship with Christ as the head of their marriage. Each will be concerned for the others happiness.(scripture ref Eph 5:21-22) Paul of the new testament devotes TWICE as many words to telling husbands to love their wives as to telling wives to submit to their husbands. (scripture ref Eph 5:25-30) There are three profound items of discussion when it comes to the marriage relationship. (1.) The scripture indicates that the husband should be willing to sacrifice EVERYTHING for her. (2.) The scripture also indicates that the husband should make her well being of primary importance. (3.) The final indication is, The husband should care for her as he cares for his own body. No wife need fear submitting to a man who treats her in this way. I hope this helps clear up any issues that anyone has towards the submission factor in marriage and in life in general.

Where Does Your Strength Come From?

Are you experiencing God's strength? God's word says in; Nehemiah 8:10. Nehemiah said, "Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the Joy of the Lord is your strength. The people had just heard the book of the law and realized just how far they had gone away from the Lord. They were crying over their spiritual condition, It's good and necessary to acknowledge and repent from sin in our lives but we should not dwell there. I really feel God wants us to get up and get over it and get to the celebration of life that we all have in Christ, not to mention that we should invite others to come hear the good news as well. We can all be mission minded, by sending food and drink to the lost and needy of the world, as well as right here in our own communities, let's get everyone involved. Put an end to being self centered . Every day is sacred. Celebration and giving go hand in hand. The needy of the world will get the chance to celebrate too. Celebration and giving in the Lord's name will cause us to be spiritually strong and filled with Joy. His Joy Becomes our strength. Just remember He will be guiding our every footstep. Go everywhere, He will lead you! Try everything until He shows you where your fit is. The word of God says in Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. There is a glorious conclusion, with the lord!

Yo Yo's what are they good for?

Oh My Gosh I just love Yo Yo's! These little cuties are great for enhancing any project. Pillows, baby apparel, headbands, quilts, shoes, aprons... The sky's the limit. This is one of my future craft classes soon to come. They are easy to make and VERY INEXPENSIVE! It's a fun project to do in a craft class setting. It reminds me of when the ladies used to get together for quilting parties. The date for the craft night is pending. If you are interested in coming to yo-yo craft night please let me know.

Deep after Deep

I've been praying for depth in my spiritual walk due to the Holy Spirits promptings. God wants me to go out to the deep waters where I cannot touch. In Faith I Must Jump In. Without asking a million questions. And Yes, I have questions, but He says "JUMP" So I say, "Yes." It really boils down to my attitude. To obey, doing what the will of my Lord commands, I know when I do this I am receiving the Holy Spirit into my life, He does the work. I am also welcoming the Holy Spirits "REVIVING LIFE" into my life and this is to be a continual work by Him. This becomes my "Life Attitude." When trials come I am prepared. I feel like trials are divine for the christian, I heard it put this way, Trials are divinely provided vessels for the Holy Spirit to fill. I picture them in my head to look like a beautiful cup lined with a beautiful blanket/covering, that fills the cup, and I'm lightly placed on top of the soft blanket/covering which represents God holding me through the trial. They ARE divine appointments. Pray that God helps you to understand there meaning so they will become opportunities for receiving new blessings and deliverance's which we can get no other way.
