Saturday Sharing

Nothing more beautiful than Eagles, I love the way they move, the way they wait to make a move on their prey, and how they care for their young, it is very fascinating to me the life of the eagle, and my life's verse is Isaiah 40:31
"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
It took a long time for me to realize why God had given me this verse, but with the long walk with Jesus I learned, to wait, not to jump in feet first, but to be still and wait on
his leading. If we can be still and listen to the lord he does speak in a still small voice, but we can hear if we are listening, at times we just ignore him, and go about our business, but then other times we do listen and we learn much from his guidance.

Have you ever watched Eagles? Watched the way they care for each other, and the way they care for their young?
When Eagle reached near 40, it’s beak,talon and feathers becomes weak. For new life, agle makes one hard decision. Eagle flies on top of a mountain and sits on nest. Then Eagle strikes its beak against a rock and pull it out. After that it waits for new beak to grow. Then it starts plucking out it’s talons. New talons grow back. Then it plucks its old and thick feathers.
Now the painful process completed and it has to wait for 5 month to recover. After that it can make its fly to sky and can enjoy new birth. Now it can live 30 years more.

Some change needs to survive in difficulty. In miserable condition, we have to change life style. That process may be very painful. Sometimes we have to throw our old habits, memories and our daily routines. We can’t go ahead with all our past burdens. Then we have to free our burdens and sorrows.

Hope you have enjoyed the information about the beautiful Eagle, it is one of my favorites, have a wonderful weekend, be blessed, and be a blessing.

The Hens Have Names
Leah, Lois and Lydia, and my other two are Mary and Martha, so all have Biblical names, and all are doing great, you can see a little of the lifted cage, it stands about 4 foot off the ground, and is completely wired, so nothing can get into this cage, I am so happy that my dear hens are safe and sound now, all are laying eggs too, so I will be able to give many eggs away, makes me happy, that is the main reason I wanted more hens, to have more eggs to share.

We went to town to get some wood at Lowe's, well the car dealer is right next door, our SUV is a 2006, and we were afraid it may start having problems, although it ran perfect and still looked and smelled like new. But any how we looked, and were able to buy  a  new 2011 for less a month than the 2006 was, now how great is that. The interest rate is only 4% which is so good too, they give us a free tank of gas, a free car wash and oil change when needed, we are happy as can be too, it is almost like the one we had but 5 years newer. We got a great deal I think, and it should last us for a very long time, it will probably be the last new one we get, unless we live a very long time and the lord tarries, then we will need another. Here is a photo of our new SUV

Our Azalea bushes are all in bloom now too, and my exotic plant is starting to bloom also, yes Spring is in the air, and I am thrilled, my tomatoes seeds are up about 1 inch now in the pots.
Our little Zoie Michelle is enjoying this Spring weather too.

☺Tasty Tuesday ☺

Chicken Pot Pie


2 cans (9-3/4 ounces each) chunk white chicken, drained
1 can (15-1/4 ounces) lima beans, drained
1 can (15 ounces) sliced carrots, drained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) sliced potatoes, drained
1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
2 packages (15 ounces each) refrigerated pie pastry
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1-1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted


In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. Line two 9-in. pie plates with bottom crusts. Add filling. Roll out remaining pastry to fit tops of pies; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry; brush with butter.

Cover and freeze one potpie for up to 3 months. Bake the remaining potpie at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

To use frozen potpie: Remove from the freezer 30 minutes before baking. Cover edges of crust loosely with foil; place on a baking sheet.

Bake at 425° for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 375°; remove foil. Bake 55-60 minutes longer or until golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 2 pies (6 servings each).

Now if you want you can use all fresh ingredients, as I do most times, but this one is for the woman who is in a hurry and wants a delicious dinner in a hurry.

My dear husband has spent the best part of Friday and Saturday afternoon re-doing our hen house. He has enclosed the entire building structure in rabbit wire, then put it all up on 3.5 high 2x4 legs, braced them, that should keep all the critters out from them, I so pray. A brother in our church brought me 3 more hens last evening, gorgeous ladies, 2 Red Island Reds, and 1 Black silk, she is beautiful, jet black and so shiney, I have not ever even seen a black chicken let alone own one, I am thrilled, the are kinda of stand offish right now, letting the ones that I had prior eat first and all, hope they get to feel at home soon, I will check on them in a bit and perhaps give them something special (some dried bread) they love that, well they pretty well love everything. So I do pray that they will be happy, give lots of eggs, and stay well.

Our church services were very good Sunday, the Spirit of God surely ruled, we had one saved also, praise God. Hope you all had a good weekend also.

Have a very blessed week, and know I keep you in my prayers.
