Feeding your spirit, soul, and body!

Healed and Whole…God Promises It!

3He was despised and rejected—   a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.   He was despised, and we did not care. 4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;     it was our sorrows[a] that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,  a punishment for his own sins! 5 But he was pierced for our rebellion,  crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole.   He was whipped so we could be healed.   Isaiah 53:3-5

Psalm 103:1-5 NIV

1 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
2 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
    may I never forget the good things he does for me.
3 He forgives all my sins
    and heals all my diseases.
4 He redeems me from death
    and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
5 He fills my life with good things.
    My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

Psalm 16:8-11 Ampilified Bible

8 I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory [my inner self] rejoices; my body too shall rest and confidently dwell in safety,

10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol (the place of the dead), neither will You suffer Your holy one [Holy One] to see corruption.

11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.


Maw’s Gravy Train

This is a “secret” recipe my grandmother created and passed on to me.  We used to always laugh because you would think her recipes were FBI secrets locked away in a concrete vault somewhere!   I know if she could tell me from Heaven she would say, “I was so silly to not share!  I know better now…share away, Baby!”  So I am!  This recipe is called “Gravy Train” because when I was a little girl there was a dog food commercial that had a little puppy driving a covered wagon and he would drive it straight to the cabinet “Gravy Train” was kept in.   It was called this because it had gravy with the meat.  I began to call it “Gravy Train” because of all the gravy with the new potatoes  and it just stuck.   Here we go!

Step 1:  Boil until tender in salted water new potatoes (red potatoes).  Pour off all but about one fourth of the hot water.

 

Step 2:  Add 3 Tablespoons of butter or margarine…remember I am from Texas y’all…we do everything big!  :)

 

Step 3:  Stir melting butter until completely dissolved!

 

Step 4:  Using “All Purpose Flour” you will begin to make the gravy.  This is where it gets a little dicey, but it is worth it!

 

Step 4, part 2:  Add 2- 3 heaping Tablespoons of flour to a cup.

 

Step 5:  Add approximately one fourth cup milk.

 

Step 6:  Whisk gravy until smooth.  You may have to add more milk or flour.  You want it to be soupy but not watery!!

 

Step 7:  Add flour mixture to potatoes and stir over medium heat continuously.  Gravy will begin to thicken.  Don’t lose heart at first…it will be very watery, but it will eventually thicken!  After it thickens, taste to see if salt is needed.  You may add pepper if you like, too!

 

Voila!  Plate and serve.  As you can see, I serve mine with meatloaf and purple hull peas.  Yummo!!  Enjoy!

 

 


Stuffed Pears

I decided to mix things up a bit and give you all a recipe my grandmother always made for Sunday dinner when I was a little girl.  I saw this on another site and it took me back in time.  Today my daughter is blogging with me as a guest.  She is my super-duper photographer!  :)   I hope you enjoy this timeless classic.  There is a twist to this recipe.  If you don’t like mayonnaise, you can use cream cheese and crushed pineapple (drained) for the filling.  Here we go!

Step 1:  You can either use canned pears in heavy syrup or pear preserves.  I used a can of pears in the syrup.  Lift it out with a fork. Make sure the pear is drained well of the syrup.   You can place it on a lettuce leaf if you would like as decoration.

Step 2:  Stuff pear with Miracle Whip!  DO NOT use real mayonnaise!!  It just is not nearly as good!!

 

Step 3:  Add mild cheddar cheese (grated).

Voila!  You are done!  This is quick, easy, and sure to please on any dinner table or for a church supper.  Enjoy!!

While We Were Yet Sinners, Christ Died For Us!

6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 9 And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. 10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.  Romans 5:6-11

We are to always follow Jesus’ example!  We are known by our LOVE one for another!
