It has been a busy few days, and I have not had time to even post, I miss chatting in my blog, and I tend to rattle on at times, and this is one of those times.
Thursday we left just as the sun was coming up, for Jacksonville, FL it is about an hour and 20 minute drive from where we live here in Southern GA, I have a ladies group online, Called Barbara's Blessings, one of the ladies husband had a tumor on his brain, they were going to remove it at Mayo Clinic that day, so my husband and I went down to be with them and to pray with him before his surgery. He had the surgery, and they found the tumor was on the brain stem so was unable to do a biopsy or remove it, they do not think it is malignant though. They did put a shunt in and made a different way for the fluids to run off the brain, instead into the brain, it was causing him to have the water on the brain, so he is in ICU still recovering, and doing better each day, if you will please pray for James Ruddy and his dear wife Anna, they are from Northern GA and have came this way especially for his surgery.
It has been a joy to meet them, and to pray with them, and to be an encouragement to them, God puts people in our path that we may help, and be a comfort to, we need to count it all joy to help others, and be help to them in their time of need.
Far to many times we look the other way, and think oh someone else will help them, but you know we have found that most times no one else does help, if God touches your heart to help someone you need to listen to him, and obey his calling.
God gives us friends in our life to encourage us, when there are times we need a friendly hello, or a hug, or just a kind word from someone, let us be tender hearted and aware of the Holy Spirit as he deals with our hearts. I want to be open to God's leading in all circumstances, and I want to be a help to others, and for them to see Christ in me. I really feel we are left here on earth after we are saved, to be a console and encouragement to the body of Christ, and to be a light in this very dark world, and to be a witness to them about what God has did in our life, and how Christ changed us after salvation, may we always see there is a need to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ, if we pray daily, and ask God to put someone in need in our path that we can help, he will, he is just and faithful to his word, and his word says God is the same yesterday, today and forever, so even though times are changing, God is still the same, and he will stay the same, let us lean on him, and draw all our strength from him.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and Tomorrow go and worship our living Saviour, and spend time in prayer, and be ye filled with the Holy Spirit of God. God bless you.

"Easy to make French bread rolls. Dough can be made in mixer, bread maker, or by hand. Loaves or rolls can be brushed before baking with a glaze of 1 beaten egg white mixed with 1 tablespoon water if desired." These will go so good with Spaghetti, and with Pasta dishes, or even top Onion soups with them..Ohhhhhhhhh
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) 1 tablespoon active dry yeast 2 tablespoons white sugar 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon salt 4 cups bread flour DIRECTIONS
In a large bowl, stir together warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
To the yeast mixture, add the oil, salt, and 2 cups flour. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces, and form into round balls. Place on lightly greased baking sheets at least 2 inches apart. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

Country Breakfast Pizza Here’s another breakfast dish that goes together in a hurry. It’s a skillet pizza that only spends fourteen minutes in the oven. It’s a hit with both kids and adults. Ingredients 2 tablespoon butter 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour2 teaspoons granulated sugar1/2 teaspoon salt2 teaspoons baking powder2/3 cup milkmore flour if needed 1 tablespoon butter1/2 small onion, diced 1/4 green or red bell pepper, choppeddiced ham, crumbled bacon, or sausage bits5 large eggspepper and salt Salsa 2/3 cup grated cheddar2/3 cup grated mozzarella
Directions 1. Place the two tablespoons of butter in a nine-inch, oven-proof skillet. Place the skillet in the oven. Turn the oven to 425. Check on the butter after about five minutes. After the butter is melted, remove the skillet from the oven. 2. Place the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Stir to combine well. Add the milk all at once. Stir with a fork until it starts to come together and then remove the dough to a counter. Knead the dough until it is smooth, one to two minutes, dusting the counter with additional flour as necessary. 3. Stretch the dough into a disk. Place the disk in the buttered skillet. Press the dough across the bottom and up the sides of the skillet. 4. Place the skillet back in the oven and bake the crust for twelve minutes at 425 or until the crust begins to brown. Remove the skillet from the oven. 5. While the crust is baking, in another skillet, melt the one tablespoon of butter and sauté the onion, pepper, and ham in the butter until the vegetables are almost tender. Stir in the eggs and pepper and salt to taste. Cook until done, stirring frequently. 6. While the eggs are cooking, spread salsa in the bottom of the crust. 7. Spoon the cooked eggs into the crust on top of the salsa. Sprinkle the tops of the eggs with the cheeses. Place the pizza back in the oven at 425 degrees and bake for two more minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. 8. Serve hot.

We had a very busy day, we left early for Jacksonville, FL and spent the day there.
We go the Vets there because it is so much cheaper than here in GA, we got the two dogs heart worm medicines.
We stopped by the Bible Book store, and I got a new Bible, long overdue, my last one is not that old, it is the KJV Open Bible, one of the greatest study bibles I have ever owned, but the pages started falling out, they are not made the way they used to be for sure, but then is anything? I really did not like to be at church and flipping the pages and them falling out, picture that, and it will make you smile.
We went to a fun place called Shep's, it is a surplus store, and has everything from soup to nuts, lol literally, we bought a few things there too, then we went and ate, at a favorite place called Famous Amos, it has good down home cooking, and we used to go there all the time when we lived in Florida. Living in Georgia now we have not found anything to compare to our places there. So even though it is over an hours drive we still go frequently to buy some items there.
Many of our family lives there too, and most all our friends.
We stopped on the way home to visit a friend there, and they were home, and we had a sweet time of fellowship with them. They are a couple who went to our church when we were in Florida, where my DH will preach a homecoming in August too.
So after that we left for home, and was glad to get here, we ran into some rain, and that cooled it off, but it is still a very long drive when you get tired. So that is how we spent our day, and tomorrow is doctor's appointments, and we will run again. I guess that is what keeps us young and moving.
Sooooooooooo Iam gonna close this off for tonight, and hope to see you tomorrow, I will try and add a new recipe tomorrow for y'all. Now you have a good night, and God bless Y'All where ever you are, and what ever you do may God take care of you.

Hiding in Thee O safe to the Rock that is higher than I, My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly; So sinful, so weary, Thine, Thine, would I be; Thou blest “Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee. Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee, Thou blest “Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee. In the calm of the noontide, in sorrow’s lone hour, In times when temptation casts o’er me its power; In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea, Thou blest “Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee. Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee, Thou blest “Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee. How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe, I have fled to my refuge and breathed out my woe; How often, when trials like sea billows roll, Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul. Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee, Thou blest “Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee.
The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalms 9:9 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. . Proverbs 14:26 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. Psalms 32:7 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. Psalms 94:22 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word. Psalms 119:114 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy. Psalms 145:20
