Baking Without My Helper! 3 John 1:8

3 John 1:8 
We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellow helpers to the truth. 

Baked sugar cookies this morning... missed my helper who I thought would be here this week, but that's okay because I baked one batch from a recipe that will make many dozens. This is my old vintage cookie sheet from the 60's and the old oven mitt of mine from the same era... just can't throw anything away... back to the sugar cookies... rolled in a ball after chilling 2 hours then dipped in sugar and pressing with a glass bottom and decorating with sprinkles... they were yummy but softer than a regular sugar cookie!

17 O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness.…

Spend Time With Jesus

Proverbs 31 Ministries
“I was doing many things, pouring myself out for God, but not really spending time getting refilled by God.” Can you relate?
We run at a breakneck pace to try and achieve what God wants us to slow down enough to receive. He really does have it all worked out. The gaps filled. The needs met. The questions answered. The problems solved.
All He asks is that we personally receive from Him before setting out to work for Him. In doing so we are fueled by His power and encouraged by His presence. This is the daily sacred exchange where ministry duty turns into pure delight.
At Proverbs 31 Ministries, our deepest desire is to help you be with Jesus by weaving God’s Word into the rhythm of your life through what we offer each day.

Good Saturday Morning

The Shepherds and the Angels
And she gave birth to her firstborn, a Son. She wrapped Him in swaddling cloths and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. 
And there were shepherds residing in the fieldsnearby, keeping watch over their flocks by night.
Just then, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.…

FRIENDSHIP! John 15:12-15

One of my best friends and I talked this morning for 21/2 hours! Now what does that tell you about close friends... that we love each other dearly and share so much with each other... it's called BONDED! Miss Barb you are loved more than words can express! Our children are married to each other... known each other since childhood! BONDED forever!

John 15:12-15

"This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. "You are My friends if you do what I command you. read more.
"No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.

Isaiah 53:4-6

Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.

Ezekiel 47:12 

And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.”

Silent Night

"Silent Night"

Silent night, holy night
All is calm and all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing halleluia
Christ the savior is born
Christ our savior is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God
Love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord at thy birth
Jesus Lord at thy birth
