As you might have noticed from Sharon's Blog, we're having meetings at my church right now.

And they're wonderful.

Jesus Christ is so good to us.

If you'd like to listen in, you can go to my church's website, and it will tell you how.

E-53 You don't get a mouthful this time. You get a heart full. The same Holy Spirit that fell on the day of Pentecost is stored up. He said, "It's for you and to your children and to them at Phoenix, Arizona." There's to whom that the Lord our God shall call (Amen.) want honey in the rock.
I used to make a little remark like this, watching a shepherd, how they carried the little scrip bags you know. And when an old sheep would get sick, they'd pour some of the honey on the rock, and the sick sheep would go to licking the honey off the rock. In licking the honey, you got some of the limestone, and the limestone healed the sick sheep.

E-54 I got a whole scrip bag full up here this afternoon, and I'm going to put it on the Rock, Christ Jesus, and you sick sheep go to licking. I pray you'll get some of it, sure as the world. That's right. Amen. There's honey in the rock.
And remember brother, sister, I'll not put it on the Methodist church, the Baptist church, the Pentecostal church. I'll put it where it belongs, on Jesus Christ, the Son of...?... Yes.
Sick sheep, just lick, lick, lick and you're sure to get some of the limestone. Just shout to the top of your voice, scream to the top of your voice. While your licking, you're going to get some virtue in there. Just as quick...?... Amen. Yes. Honey in the rock, David spoke of it.

E-55 All right, the rock. There's some kind of an element in a rock that does healing. The old-timers used to, when someone got bit by a mad dog, they'd stuck him against the mad stone. If he stuck, he got well. If he didn't stick, he died.
Well, brother, the worst mad dog I know is the devil. And the best cure I know is the Rock of Ages. Get to It. Hold on to It. Hallelujah. It's a double cure for both sin and sickness.
Oh, what the Church needs today is not a new building here on the corner. It's not a new pipe organ in the church nor some new seats.
What It needs is a good old-time Saint Paul's revival, and the Bible Holy Ghost back into the Church, repentance preached in the fire and the simplicity of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. "If I be lifted up, I'll draw all men unto Me," said Jesus. Holy Ghost and Fire... When we let the Fire go out, we're sinking.
--Brother Branham.

God Bless you all!

The Lill' Guys--and a Girl...

Anyone who knows me pretty well knows how much I love my siblings' children... And since I've got a new one to dote on, it's picture time!

The newest addition...

Lucas, bein' his sleepy, sweet self...

While Renee sacs some 'taters with Grandaddy, bein' her usual bubbly self.

These others are a little older... from this summer.


Thinking. And listening. He's the type to pause before action.

And Samuel...

..who tends to take the bull by the horns, and run with it.

Gotta love 'em all.

You tell me...

...what you would have done. Setting: 6th Grade ELA classroom, public school USA.
Studying Latin and Greek roots.
Root of the moment: archy = government example words: matriarch / patriarch.

And I'm relating it to my students' lives by discussing who rules their homes.
A little boy in the back of the room politely raises his hand, his expression serious. "My daddy--he told me that the Bible says women aren't supposed to rule their families.
Men are supposed to rule the family.
" "Yup, Christian, that's what the Bible says."

One last foodie entry...

I seem to do the majority of cooking on Saturday morn, and this recipe is no exception...

Huevos Rancheros
(per person...just because you never know how many pple want to eat...)

1/2 c. mixed greens (mesclun mix)

1 egg
1 T. sweet milk
1 T. buttermilk
salt and pepper to taste
a dash or two of thyme (whole spice is better than ground in this case)
1/4 c. salsa (whatever your fave is)

Wash greens, an allow to dry while cooking eggs. Heat saucepan; spray, or grease with butter. Mix all ingredients except salsa together. After pan is hot, pour in egg mixture, and begin to set them. Pour salsa in pan over eggs, and cook eggs, scrambled-style, until salsa is no longer runny. Place greens on a plate; pour huevos over greens. Enjoy!

Last time, I tried it with all buttermilk. It was a bit stringier than usual, but the flavor was marvelous. So, I'm recommending 1/2 sweet milk; 1/2 buttermilk until I find out differently...

I know this sounds weird--but it was so good. Or maybe it's just a "Marie Thing"-- there are quite a few of those, ya know... lol!


Half-Buttermilk was good--but I kinda miss the extra cheesy kinda flavour full buttermilk gives! It's still up for debate.

Another word of wisdom: if you're using fresh thyme, be careful! It's easy to get to much--eek...

One reason I keep posting recipes is because it's an easy way to keep up with them....

Marie's Cherry Nut Dump Cake

1 20-oz can crushed pineapple, partially drained
1 15-oz can cherries in heavy syrup
1 box Butter Pecan cake mix
1 stick (1/2 c.) butter, sliced into small sections
1/2 c. diced nuts or nutty struesel (I used some leftover crust from an almond cheesecake...)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray down a pyrex or metal 13x9 pan. In pan, mix together pineapple and cherries. Layer cake mix on top. Layer nuts or struesel on top of that. Place slices of butter on top, covering the surface of the "cake".

Bake for 45-50 minutes.

This turns out a bit like a fruit buckle. It's incredibly easy when you have to bring in something at the last minute!

God Bless
