Thank You, Sharon!

Well, and Monica (who just had twins!), and her sister, Irina!

I tried my hand at pizza tonight, and this was the result:

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

I differed from the original recipe just a smidge:
  • Ahem. The original recipe forgot to mention that you need to mix the reserved flour, flax, and yeast together, and then pour the liquid over that. Then you use the remaining flour to make the dough. (I pretty much used all the flour--it was the perfect amount!

  • Instead of baking it as originally stated, I put the baking stone in the oven, and then preheated it to convection 475, and cooked it for 7-8 minutes. (I think I might experiment with convection 500 next time, if the oven will do it. I'm really not sure how hot this oven will get...)
I've been terribly busy lately. It's a combination of going through ADEPT, taking two classes (yes, I am crazy), and all the other stuff that regularly consumes my life. But God is good--all the time.

God Bless y'all!

Happy New Year, All!

Though I like Bro. Branham's way of saying it better...


64 And now, beginning the new year, I want to say, not "Happy New Year" to you; I want to say this to you, "God bless you." And if He does that, that's all you'll have need of for the coming year. And I trust that He will.

And I'm by His grace, we're going to try this next year, if He shall spare me, spare you, by His grace I hope I am a better pastor next year than I have been this year, hope I be a better servant to Christ. I'll try hard to try to live closer, more truer to bring the Message just as He gives me; I shall bring It to you the best that I can, withhold nothing that He would want me to give you. I'll do all that I know how. And I know you feel the same way. You--you feel like that we all want to work together now, for the evening Lights are certainly getting dim, and the sun's far setting. The earth's cooling off; we know that. Spiritually speaking, the church is cooling off and the revival is over. We don't know what comes next, but we will trust God for that, whatever it is...
