Well, it's back to school we go!!

It's been a while since I last posted anything on my blog, ....whew summer went by soo fast. I've been busy with different projects and it's been such a blessing. Hope to share soon, if the Lord should lead. Today was the first day of our school year and we were super excited. My little one especially was really excited, it was her first day in kindergarden {at home, I am homeschooling again this year}. And my baby girl {my oldeset} started 7th grade today, it was special!!

I will be posting pics of our first week of school soon. I'm excited!! I pray your first day was super awesome and your kids were blessed. I made my family a special breakfast, like something out of a Denny's menu {LOL} and tonight we are having a special dinner. Roasted Chicken, homemade mashed papa's, homemade gravy and a side of veggies. Yummo! I can't wait to hear your about your first day back to school blessings.

Here is the recipe for Roasted Chicken it's super easy.

Whole Chicken {can usually get these for about $.67 - $.97 lb when they are on sale, only time I buy them}
Olive oil
seasoned salt
lemon pepper
Roasting pan {you can use a 13x9 or any deep dish pan that will be big enough for your chicken}
A Roasting Tray {I didn't have it so I used celery sticks like 3-4 depending on pan and size of chicken}
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. So take your defrosted chicken out of package, take out the insides and give it a good wipe down with a wet paper towel {recommended way to do it}. Once that is done lay some celery sticks or your roasting tray in your pan. Put chicken on top of the tray or celery, and massage some oil on chicken, I'd say about 2-3tbspns if you want to get technical. I just eyeball it, just lather that baby up. Then get your seasoned salt and massage to chicken, again I eyeball it, but if you want about 2tbspns, just enough to make him look like she's got a tan. Then apply some lemon pepper and do the same. And viola your done, put her in the oven for about 1 and 1/2 hours. And you got yourself a home smelling good, makes the kids want to come eat at the table. I also am making some homemade mashed potatoes. You just peel your papas {potatoes} and cut them to about 2 inch, just in quaters and quaters again. Put them in cold water in a deep pan {something you would cook your spaghetti in} and some salt to taste {optional} bring to a boil and lower heat to medium-med/high heat and cook for about 15-20 minutes, drain and add some butter {2-4 tbspns}, some milk about 1/4 cup or how ever much you feel you need. Depends on how creamy you want them and then add salt and pepper to taste. Make some veggies, just steam some or cook them in a frying pan with a little bit of butter or boil them. And once the chicken is done take the chicken out of the pan, but leave the juices and celery, with that roasting pan put on your stove to cook the gravy in. Yes the whole pan, it should take up about 2 burners. Once you got that thing hot add 1 1/2 cup of chicken broth and stir. In another little bowl stir 1/4 cup of chx {chicken stock} and 1/4 cup of flour and stir until there are no lumps. Then add that to your hot pan, stirring constantly until it's boiling and should be a thick consistancy. If it's not thick add flour about 1 tsp at a time. And if's too thick add more chicken broth.  And viola your done, a meal that seems like it's alot of work but it's super easy. Alright ya'll have a blessed night! I will let you know how it turns out. This is the 2nd time I've made it, but it's been awhile. I got this recipe off of a show, Lordwilling I pray it comes out edible.

God Bless you!

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
