"Entangled with Joy" an uplifting word to "un" tangle and reconnect with the heart
This week seems to have sped up. Wouldn't you agree?
I just came home from sharing in a Thanksgiving festivity at my husbands Don's work. He is a Master Tech at the local Honda dealership. And also a Master at deep frying turkeys. We all enjoyed two different birds, one butter injected and the other Cajun-infused. Your mouth is watering I can tell.
I promise to post the recipe and video the process for you foodies.
As we enter the season of Thankfulness and giving,
I was searching to give you something.
Thank You to Many of you who have jumped over to Amazon or one of my other affiliates, via my website, it does bring a blessing my way when you shop.
So back to my search for something to give you!
One of the most encouraging things I have found is to watch or to listen to ourselves recorded. I heard a testimony from a saxophonist who was hospital bound with not long to live. The Lord told him to play his "videos" of himself playing the saxophone. The sound of his personal ministry healed him in three days; they released him from the hospital with a clean bill of health. That testimony has stuck with me.
Testimonies are found seated within the mercy seat of Christ. Exodus 25:22 You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark, you shall put the testimony which I will give to you. Testimonies are alive. They are God's agreement, it's His will, and He desires to do it again. That is why He holds them within the Mercy seat of Christ. Not one of the articles placed inside but within the covering. Cherubim look into them.
I just re-listened to a short audio of my teaching, titled an Encouraging word from a bible study series I called the Many Moods of Minnie. Yes, Minnie, the mouse. That's another story. I found it buried in old files and recorded on a phone before they were "Smart." I think its almost 15 yrs old. It took me a bit to place it until I recognize familiar laughs from the audience. Just to hear them again touched me. We move on in many ways but hearing joy bubbling reminded me of what He has done inside of me. That is the heart of Thanksgiving a grateful "remembering" for what He has accomplished. It's a work of the heart.
My personal revelation has grown, thankfully I didn't bite my teeth with something I said. It encouraged me to continue to believe, to press forward, pursue. That God still believes in me, that I will accomplish His good pleasure throughout my life.
It blessed me. I believe it will bless you.
I re-found a lost treasure,
My gift to you.
Put your headphones on while you're making pumpkin pie or getting down the Christmas boxes from the attic. Enjoy your family.
No really, enjoy your family.
Thursday swished by quickly this week and my husband Don came home from work with a twinkle in his eye and a bug in his ear. Honey I've always wanted to make homemade Ravioli. I responded, "are you sure?" "It takes a lot of patience to work with the dough", Yup Don said, I can read a recipe.......Well 2 hours latter and a few delicate words flying....... the blankity blank dough would not move through the blankity blank pasta maker, my son Justin and I stayed away from the kitchen and chuckled under our breath. Both Justin and I our proud to say we are accomplished "Dough Movers". Yes I said mover not makers. Anyone can make dough, its the professional that can pick it up and place it where you want. I am one of those people who do not understand people who buy "frozen pie dough" and box cake mixes. Bah!!!!
I haven't made homemade pasta for awhile........let the dust cool around here and then I'll casually show him up!!!!
Ok as I was reading my blog and laughing at his grumpy picture I felt a ping in my heart and thought I would share. My husband is an accomplish cook, master of the Barbecue, Award winning Lamb Chili, stir fry champ and he butchers and wraps all his own meats.
I promise I'll let him have a victory to share with you along with some of his great recipes.
I heard those of you say, when will she show us how to make pie dough....Promise I will make a video, I'll ask Justin to join me.....
I may have to have some kind of sworn statement from you that you will solemnly swear not to purchase frozen pie dough.....so let's hear from you!!!
