~Tuesday Upon Us~

Butter Baked Pumpkin Seeds

2 c. pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
1 tsp. salt

Spread seeds on a cookie sheet and let dry overnight. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine butter and salt and toss with seeds. Bake for 50 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes until seeds are lightly browned.  Sounds really good, my youngest daughter
loves these pumpkin seeds.

•Drinking From the Well of Living Water•

The Bible mentions water over and over again, Sometimes, water is simply water.
Quite often, though, Scriptures uses water as a picture of the Holy Spirit. Consider
John 7:37-38, this records Christ's own words: "If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." This thirst Jesus mentions here is so much more than physical thirst. It's the longing for relief from all the hurt sin has brought into our world. It's the longing for a personal conflict to finally end. It's the soul's cry for justice or an aching body's plea for a peaceful night's rest. Most of , it's the guilt-ridden heart wondering if Gof will really forgive- again. That's real thirst.

Are you really thristing for those rivers of living water? Do you truly believe that Jesus can fill your soul and restore your hope with peace, healing and giving strength for each day. HE CAN, and HE WILL just trust in him.
Love Ya, Barbara

My husband will love these. I grew pumpkins this year specifically for the seeds for him. :) I've never tried baking them in butter, but it sounds like a really good idea.
