Have A Happy New Year 2011

Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

The year is almost over, tonight at midnight we will have a whole new year to look forward to, if the lord tarries. We cannot reclaim it or undo it, all the mistakes we made will be forever there, all the accomplishments we made will be in the past now. We cannot rely on the great distance it has brought us. If we see another tomorrow, it will be new day, a new opportunity, and the time to show our faith in Jesus as Lord.  Let's journey forward, knowing that God already knows what our tomorrow will bring, and the great and mighty things his hand is working, I am looking forward to this year, it is that much closer to the time when Jesus comes for his bride, the future and promises will provide us refreshment on our journey there.

God bless you in this new year, may you complete any tasks not finished, and may you bring love, peace, and happiness to all those around you. God bless you my friend, and do have a safe, and prosperous New Year.

Another Year for Thee

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with Thee!

Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast,
Of even deeper trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness,
In the shining of Thy face.

Another year of progress,
Another year of praise;
Another year of proving
Thy presence "all the days."

Another year of service,
Of witness to Thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above.

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
On earth, or else in heaven,
Another year for Thee!

Tomorrow will be 1-1-11 how cool, the year of the ones I see it will be.

Wonderful Wednesday Words

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
John 14:1-3

He's coming back! As much as the world likes to remember Jesus' first coming during the Christmas season, we need to remind them that his Second Coming will be even greater. We want to be prepared, and our lives dedicated to his glory and hearts full of expectation at his coming.

He tells us in Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

He warns us in many of the scriptures to watch and pray, and be ready, we must tell those around us to be ready, and how to be ready, not just saying well you better get saved and be ready is  enough, they do not understand what we mean.

Be plain and explain to them how they can be saved, and what will happen if they do not accept Christ as Saviour, it is our duty as a Christian to tell everyone we meet.
Let us be bold and have a fervent desire this new year to make sure all those around us are safe in the fold. I hope you will join me in the effort.

I pray and hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, and a great time of prayer and fellowship tonight at church. God bless you.

In his Love, Barbara

Monday Madness, NOT...Well Christmas is over, and Sunday is past, today is a day of rest for me, it has been a busy month, and with being sick, and my cyst on the knee, I have had my fill of December for one year, I am happy it is about over.
We had a wonderful Christmas, and spent quality time with friends and family, it was good, I received so many nice gifts, my dear husband got me a new Dell laptop, bright red. Then my son bought me a Oster, I cook and bake so much it was the perfect gift for his mom whom he knows so well, it is so nice and I will certainly enjoy using it. God has blessed us this year, with joy unspeakable, and so much grace and glory, he is the best friend I have ever had, and I so enjoy serving him.
Our church was down yesterday, some out of town, some sick, I am hoping after the first of the year things will pick up, and others will come and join with us, God has to give the increase, we can go on visitation, and invite folks, and tell them about Jesus, but God has to bring them in, we have had some visitors, and praying they come back and spend time with us again, that they will love it there and join in to help serve the lord with us.
I hope you have a wonderful New Year, and that God blesses each of my blogging friends abundantly.

It has been such a joy this year meeting you all, and reading your comments and just the whole experience of Blogging. Thank you for visiting me, and for making my days a little brighter.

Angels We have heard on High

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.


Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?


Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.


See Him in a manger laid,
Whom the choirs of angels praise;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While our hearts in love we raise.

Saturday Collage

The project we finished last evening, getting our bags
filled for the kids Sunday, we will have a little Christmas program for them, then give
out these little bags of goodies,
I know they will love it.

The wonderful love of my life ready to bite into some corn, we hand picked it last Spring, and it is still delicious, just remove from the Freezer and wal-la we have fresh corn on the cob.

What is in a name?
Isa 9:6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace".

There is so very much in a name if that name is Jesus. We could add and add to those list of names for Jesus also, he is my beloved, he is my everlasting, he is my Saviour and He is my best friend. Have a very blessed Saturday.

I hope y'all are having a great month! It's hard to believe Christmas is just one week away.

Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God stuck U in the name of His Son..
And each time U pray, you'll see it's true,
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.

You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that's why He came.
And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.

Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?
The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
And this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.

When JesUs left earth at His Upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.
"Go into the world and tell them it's true
That I love them all - Just like I love U."

So many great people are spelled with a U,
Don't they have a right to know JesUs too?
It all depends now on what U will do,
He'd like them to know,
But it all starts with U.

A friend sent this to me today, and I really liked it so thought I would share with my wonderful blogger friends.
Here we are just 10 days from Christmas, and am all finished with my shopping here. That is a rarity for sure, I did all mine online this year, it was fun and easy.

It is still really cold here, low of 19° this morning, but it is suppose to warm up after tomorrow. I made home made fudge with walnuts in it today, and the cookie dough for Christmas cookies, I will make them tomorrow.
I use the old Hershey Chocolate recipe for my fudge, and a really old recipe for roll out Christmas cookies, I know they will be good, and I already sampled the fudge, lol, yep..


Luke 2:1  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8  And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

2.In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, Parmesan cheese and butter. Drain spaghetti; add to egg mixture and toss to coat.

3.Place half of the spaghetti mixture in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Top with half of the cottage cheese, meat sauce and mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes. Uncover; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

*Now this is a wonderful apple pie that will just turn your tastebuds wild, I do love this pie. Your family will love it too.


1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar
5 Granny Smith apples-peeled, cored, quartered, and thinly sliced
3 (9 inch) refrigerated pie crusts
1 cup white sugar, divided
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon butter, cut into small chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 1/2 cup butter into a heavy cast iron skillet, and melt butter in the oven. Remove skillet and sprinkle with brown sugar, return to oven to heat while you prepare the apples. Remove skillet, and place 1 refrigerated pie crust on top of the brown sugar. Top the pie crust with half the sliced apples. Sprinkle apples with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon; place a second pie crust over the apples; top the second crust with the remaining apples, and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Top with the third crust; sprinkle the top crust with 1/4 cup sugar, and dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Cut 4 slits into the top crust for steam. Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Serve warm.

My Comings and Goings Giggles:
Just sipping Coffee from my wonderful snow man mug, I do love this time of year. So Good Morning on this bitter cold day from Georgia, I do not remember it ever being this cold this late in the morning, I am happy I am inside til it warms up for sure.
We had a wonderful day in the lord, the little church is growing, we had some more visitors and I had 7 children in my SS class, I loved it, I am telling the Christmas story starting in Luke 1 til through Christmas and we will close with The Christmas play with the kids, just a simple reading of the word and the children singing the Christmas hymns that apply to that story. It will be fun for them, and with such a short time I could never put together anything very much. But I really enjoyed working with the kids too.

A couple took us out to lunch to Cracker Barrel and that was a good time of fellowship and getting to know them, they are a delightful couple who really want to serve the lord, and not afraid of work, they have gotten our Nursery all fixed up, including new flooring in it, then the Pastor's office ready for him, including a nice Computer installed, WOW they have been so busy ,and love it, it thrills my heart to see folks on fire for Christ.

I have lots of running today, and I sure am not up to it, my right knee is still hurting very bad, I will have to have something done with that Cyst soon I am afraid, but for now I just grin and bear it.

Have a wonderful blessed day, and tell me what you did over the weekend, Photobucket

Well do you have snow where you are?  If you have snow make one of these guys.  I just love him, so fat and cute.
It is cold enough to snow here but no snow, I do have a frosted field across the street looks like snow.

 I hope you have a warm Friday instead of fridgid Friday, stay cozy inside ladies who can, and those who have that terrible snow and ice and bitter cold, it is in the 20's here, and warming to about 50 today is all, but nothing compared to some places.

Amen another month to serve our Saviour and King, the song coming to mind is "Living for Jesus" I do love that song.

Living For Jesus

Living for Jesus, a life that is true,
Striving to please Him in all that I do;
Yielding allegiance, glad hearted and free,
This is the pathway of blessing for me.

Living for Jesus Who died in my place,
Bearing on Calvary my sin and disgrace;
Such love constrains me to answer His call,
Follow His leading and give Him my all.

O Jesus, Lord and Savior, I give myself to Thee,
For Thou, in Thy atonement, didst give Thyself for me.
I own no other Master, my heart shall be Thy throne.
My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ, for Thee alone.

Living for Jesus, wherever I am,
Doing each duty in His holy Name;
Willing to suffer affliction and loss,
Deeming each trial a part of my cross.

Living for Jesus through earth’s little while,
My dearest treasure, the light of His smile;
Seeking the lost ones He died to redeem,
Bringing the weary to find rest in Him.

So have some Hot Cocoa and build a fire, and have a very wonderfully blessed Friday and weekend.

             Marvellous Monday

Well the Thanks giving holiday is over, and most travelers
are gone home, the house seems quiet after a fun filled weekend. Now it is on to thinking about Christmas, and what we will do for this holiday.
I know one thing I will do, that is worship the lord, this is the day set aside to honor the birth of our lord Jesus Christ, that  I will do, although I know it is not likely that he was born on this day, it is the time set to give honor and homage to our coming King.
We had a wonderful weekend, with several visitors coming to our church, it was good to be in the house of the lord. One young couple came, and let me tell you the circumstances of this.
I met them in Wal Mart about a month ago, I was waiting for a scooter to come available, the young man was walking with a cane and waiting on one too. He admired my cane, Chuck had made for me and engraved my name on it, we started talking, he wanted one too, so he give me his phone number and and I asked Chuck if he would make one for this young man. Well he called and told the young man he would, and when he finished the cane,  the man called and Chuck told him to come to church to pick up his cane, LOL well they did and they really seemed to enjoy it, she brought us a loaf of homemade carrot bread too. It sure blessed us, so if you think of this young couple pray for them, Derick and Melissa, that they will come back, and perhaps be our workers with the young folks.
Well are you ready for a good recipe? Hope so because here is one.

Happy Thanks Giving

In another small bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Divide among four small bowls. With food coloring, tint one bowl brown, one dark orange and one light orange (using yellow and orange); leave one bowl plain.

Transfer each mixture to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of each bag.

For turkey tail feathers, decorate the top halves of large oval crackers with tinted cream cheese.

Using the red pepper, form the turkey head, neck and wattle. For beak, cut a small triangle from summer squash; attach with cream cheese. Add eyes, using brown and plain cream cheese. Insert pecan halves and decorated crackers into cheese ball. Serve with assorted crackers. Yield: 1 cheese ball (3 cups).

While the real bird is roasting, you can present your guests with this tasty Thanksgiving turkey.
This was in "Taste of Home" magizine, I love it , what a wonderful and creative appetizer.

Well our first Sunday was super, had two visitors and a wonderful service, you could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit and I do love when that happens.  We both sang, and 3 of our dear little children sang a song of Psalms, that blessed our hearts, nothing like children singing for the lord, their tender hearts toward him, I am going to work with these dear little ones, ages 11,9,7 and teach them more songs, and have them sing more often, my dear husband loves them singing also. I know God was with us, and he blessed our first Sunday serving him. I hope and pray you had a wonderful lords day also. Have a very Magnifcent Monday too. ♥

Psalm 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Keep us in prayer, this is the first Sunday my dear husband is the pastor of Gospel Light Baptist Church, pray that God will be glorified in all that is done, and that name of Jesus is magnified in all the services today, pray that some soul will accept him as their saviour today, and that we can say, it was good to be in the house of the lord. Praise His Holy Name.
There is so much to be thankful for, and may I always thank God for the things in my life, all the prayers he answers, all the blessings he bestows upon me. Oh yes thank you lord for your blessings on me.

Another Friday that we can be faithful

Well on this cool Friday morning I have a nice warm fire for you, warm my bones and sit a while I found this verse to think about, while we are sitting enjoying the fire. It goes really well with it. ☺

1 Cor 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.

14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Sometimes I think we are all guilty of serving the lord in our own strength, instead of in his spirit. That would be called Wood, Hay, and Stubble. This will all be burned, only the things we do for Christ out of a loving and dedicated spirit will be saved.
May we all be very careful how we work for the lord, is it for us, or is it for him, just think on these things, God will reveal what he wants from you and show you all truth.
May HE give us daily the ability to serve HIM with all of our hearts and love HIM above all else.
Have a blessed weekend, stay warm, and keep your eyes on Jesus.

Lots of love and Prayer
