Sharing It Saturday:

What is better to share than Jesus Christ, John 14:6  "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me".
When we share Christ with others we know we are giving the very best, that no matter what his word says it is the truth, and if we stick to his word, and not try adding our own words, we will give them everything they need for a good and pure life. It was when Eve added her own words to what God had said, she got into trouble, that is another reason for scripture memorization, GOD said it best, Psalms 119:11   "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee".
When we have memorized the word, when we share it with others, it makes it much easier to share it with others, if we do not know God's word, it is very hard to tell others what God has said, none of our memories are great these days, the elder woman any how,  but when I was young I did memorize the word of God, and to this day, some 35 years later, I still remember those verses I learned, I have called upon the lord to help me in many situations to bring to mind his word, and he has never left me out in the cold, he always brings to mind what is needed when I am sharing him with others.
My goal this new year is to learn more about my Jesus, to read more of his holy word, to spread the gospel more, and to be able to go out and tell others what this wonderful Saviour has did for me. You know if you have not memorized the scripture, just share with your family and friends what God has did for you, where he brought you from, and where you are now. I certainly am not what I want to be, but praise God I am not what I used to be, and as long as God gives the breath to me, I will take his word, and share it where ever I may go. That is one promise to God I will not break, and I will not with his help fail to tell them about this precious Jesus that saved my soul so many years ago. I have let him down many times, but you know he has never let me down even once, he has been by my side though thick and thin, he always give me the encouragement I needed, I would fall, he would help me up, dust me off, and give me sweet words to go on.

Let us turn to Jesus, and keep our eyes on him this year, with his help
may we exceed anything we have did in the past for him, I feel the time is getting close, I know it is at least 60 years closer than when I first heard he was coming back for me, so let us who wear the name Christian, make our lord proud, and serve him with all diligence and honor.
God bless each of you reading this post, may give you the desires of your heart, and may you serve him more today than you did yesterday.

Back To Normal Today
We had a good New Year Eve Party with our church, lots of food, fellowship, and I am happy the holidays are all over, and I can get back to a normal day, Monday is our Sabbath, our day of rest; being in the Ministry the weekend is not the time for our resting, it is the busiest two days of the week in fact, but Monday, oh I love Monday's, I call it My Monday. Sooooooo today I do what I want to do, catching up on the computer, been a few days since I had time, and a few errands I must run, we have some phone calls to make and then the day is mine.
It is a nice day here today too, sunny and warmer, praise God, we did not get all those horrific storms some parts of the Country did get, we sure did lots of praying for those dear ones who were in the midst of them.
I have this wonderful cookie recipe to share with you, I know you will love it, cookies are my favorite dessert and I love the different ones.

Soft Lemonade Cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup thawed lemonade concentrate, divided

Additional sugar

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture alternately with 1/3 cup lemonade concentrate, beating well after each addition.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 8 minutes. Remove to wire racks. Brush with remaining lemonade concentrate; sprinkle with sugar. Cool. Yield: 6 dozen.

They will melt in your mouth, your family will simply love them too. Have a very blessed week, and I will post more when I can.
