Trusting...



What does it mean to put your trust in someone or something?

Well, if you look up the word Trust it means:

To Have Confidence In
To Be Bold
To Be Secure
To Feel Safe

To confide in one another
to set one's hope and confidence upon anyone.

Do you have trust issues with someone?

I love this scripture:

TRUST in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5

WOW!

Do you put all of your trust into God?

Sometimes it's hard to fully put trust in someone
 and for all the unseens out there.

I love it that I don't have to worry about what tomorrow brings 
or to the unknown future.  

God all ready knows the outcome
and we should lean on Him and Trust Him no matter
what our worry is.

God's all ready there and he is protecting us and
keeping us safe from whatever lies ahead.

You just have to TRUST in Him fully!

Are you being Bold?

Take a step in Faith and Trust in Him
and step outside of your Comfort Zone!

God doesn't want you to stay confined to a small box!

There is a great big world out there, 
waiting for you to take that step!

Do you feel secure?

Do you feel safe?

Well, with God you should!

He is not here to harm us, but to love us unconditionally!

Just put all of your Trust into Him
and He will do the rest!


I hope you all take the time to really press in 
and see what God is doing within your lives!

He's Moving.... Are You?


In His Grace,

No Yeast Bread...



Good Morning All!

I have been trying to find a no yeast bread recipe and 
I have been experimenting again trying to make a home bread 
with no yeast.  I want a bread that is moist and fluffy
and not all dense and dry.

I have been struggling with yeast breads for a bit now
and I have narrowed it down to the baker's yeast
 that is making my tummy not so happy.

Did you know that they put a yeast extract 
like in almost all of our foods?

I was shocked when I was eating something that thought there is no way 
this can have yeast in it and it does!  
It was Cream of Chicken soup..... 
Most processed foods have some sort of yeast in it.
And there are several different yeasts that they use...
I have been educating myself and now I am
 learning to read all the ingredients on the boxes.

Once, I took the yeast out of my diet, 
my tummy started to feel much better!

Amazing, right?

I keep getting those little checks, like I shouldn't be eating that or
the little whispers that say if you eat that you will be sick.

Well, I have finally decided that I need to cut all yeast products
 out of my diet for a while and see if these other symptoms go away. 
 As of right now, I actually feel really good.

I tried to eat some Cheese It's the other day and
 that horrible feeling came back,
lone behold I look at the ingredients and 
viola there is yeast in them too!

So.....
I'll leave all the yeast issues behind and tell you 
I have found a no yeast bread that seems
to fit my bread cravings!  Yay!

I hope you give this a try too, 
it is a very yummy bread!



Non-Yeast Bread

3 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg, beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease one loaf pan, set aside.
Combine all the dry ingredients. Blend in the egg and buttermilk.
Add to flour mixture.  Mix well. Stir in the melted butter.
Pour into greased pan.
Bake for 65-70 minutes or until golden brown.

This bread makes a great piece of toast 
and is perfect for a sandwich!

Happy Baking Friends!

Mornings With Jesus...



Mornings With Jesus...

I love getting up and having a moment where I can talk with Jesus.

I start the tea pot and I open up my bible 
and I just start reading His Word.

Do you ever feel like His words start jumping off the pages?

When I feel like they are, then those are the scriptures I start with.

I love all the stories that is being shared through out the bible.

What an amazing time that must have been for Jesus!

I have been doing an online bible study through the Doorpost Blog
and I really like how she brings the scriptures alive!

When I'm not studying with the online study group,
I do my own bible lesson and use all the tools that 
I have learned throughout the online study..

I highlight and draw pictures in my bible next to those key scriptures!
Those drawings show me the scriptures that really stand out.

I have a notebook, pens and coloring pencils ready to use.
And now I am ready to start digging into God's Word!

Talk about jumping off the page studying!

I have several devotionals that I use
 and I love that I can dig through all 
their scriptures within the devotionals.

That's a study all on it's own!

Some mornings, 
I take longer because God is showing me amazing things!



What kind of devotionals do you use?

Happy Studying!

Homemade Sloppy Joes...


My boys absolutely LOVE Sloppy Joe's!

I mean, who wouldn't?!

Well, I finally got smart and brave enough 
and decided to make my own sloppy sauce.

Boy was I ever glad I got brave and smart enough
 to try something new!

I mean after all, I create and experiment all the time in the kitchen!

Well after googling and searching online
I found this one from the Pioneer Woman's Blog.

I will NEVER go back to buying this from a can. NEVER EVER!

It's that good!
(My hubby even liked this and he's not a Sloppy Joe kind of a guy)

Spring Time Bliss...


WELCOME SPRING!

Hello All!

I think Spring has finally arrived!!



My rhubarb is starting to pop up from under the dirt!

Such a pretty site!


Flowers are green and ready to bloom very soon!


Our strawberries are starting to come to life!


Even some of our trees are starting to bud!

Simply Beautiful!

We worked outside all day yesterday.

We planted a few bulbs of strawberries and rhubarb
A few bulbs of Gladiolas flowers
Cleaned up the yard
Cut back some decorative grass and bushes
Swept up our sidewalks
and washed my muddy car and our ATV's.

Guess how warm it was here, in our neck of the woods?

80 degrees!

Yep and we all got the sunburns to prove it!

Now that is what we call a gorgeous Sunday afternoon!!
I love Spring, how bout you all?

Did you have a nice weekend?

I hope you all get a chance to get outside
 and enjoy some fresh Spring air!

Until next time...

A Reflection...



How do you see yourself?

Do you see yourself mighty and strong 
or do you see yourself as weak and tired?

We are all called to walk with the Armor of God.

Do you reflect Him?

Do you share God's love and compassion to others?

You have first got to have the right attitude in your heart!
Make some changes, Pray and ask God for forgiveness.

Are you kind?

Or do you carry around fear and anger?

Have you asked God to take it all away?

If you haven't, you should.  
Talk about a releasing of all that negativity, fear, hate...
God will give you a whole new meaning to your life.

Ask God into your heart! 

YOU will start to see yourself as 
someone different, someone strong,
someone that doesn't carry the
 world's worries on your shoulders.

Let it Go!

OR are you just tired and wore out?
Maybe you should seek God ask Him for a recharge!
Ask him to give you a Refreshing Recharge!

Sometimes we tend to get in these RUTS and 
feel like we are too tired to fight
then we start to see ourselves as an old, worn out creature of
habit, maybe... like you just want to give in and give up.

Well, I'm telling you right now,
that you need a recharge of faith!

Ask God, ask Him to give you a 
strong recharge of His Holy Spirit!

Then...

YOU will start to become a mighty LION, that is strong and bold
  and will no longer be that little kitten that is weak and tired.


The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalms 27:1

My souls finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Psalms 62:1-2

In that day they will say,
"Surely this is our God;
we trust in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.
Isaiah 25:9

My soul is weary with sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word.
Psalms 119:28

For the eyes of the Lord range throughout 
the earth to strengthen those whose hearts
are fully committed to Him.
2 Chronicles 16:9

Recharge Your Faith
And become that Mighty Lion 
you were called to be! 

Let's Roar!!!

In His Grace,
