Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20 Lord, You have commanded us to make disciples of all nations-may we begin within our own hearts! You are the way the truth and the life, and we thank You for Your promise to be with us always.

  10. A friend at church told me yesterday that they took a calf (can't remember if she said heifer or steer) almost 500 lbs and it brought $2.60 a pound. It was half angus and half dairy. This is at the Oklahoma Texas border where it was sold (livestock auction). That makes for some very expensive beef.
  11. Yes, Mother, this is the book that grain was stored in the walls. It is what probably saved the town that winter. I've got 4 or 5 more books in that set that I want to read before I give it back to my granddaughter. I think sometimes maybe I was born too late too!
  12. I just read The Long Winter last week. I bought the set for my granddaughter for Christmas last year and asked her if I could borrow them last week. You don't realize how blessed you are until you read what they ate when the trains couldn't get into town and how little they had and how terribly cold it must have been in that upstairs bedroom! After reading that I decided I should start dehydrating and canning more.
  13. I found this on pinterest and have decided I'm going to make some of these. It's called "re-usable paper towel roll" but not made of paper, it's out of cloth. The website was http://www.sewastraightline.com/2010/04/rolled-kitchen-towels-tutorial-and.html She has many pictures of how she made these. I use too many paper towels now and decided I was going to make these and trim my papertowel usage down drastically.
  14. One of my favorite verses that I go to often is No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. I Corinthians 10:13 Today the sermon was on Red Sea and Gethsemane prayers. Exodus 14 is where the Israelites were about to be overtaken by the Egyptians at the Red Sea. Moses had brought the Israelites out of Egypt and were now trapped between the Red Sea and Pharaoh's army. Moses told the complaining Israelites to "Stand still and see the deliverance of the Lord." God did a miraculous thing...He parted the Red Sea and provided a way of escape for Israel. Gethsemane Prayer-King David (2 Samuel 12) fasted and prayed for 7 days for his infant son to be healed, but he died anyway. David rose from his prayer, washed, changed clothes and went into the house of the Lord and worshipped. God did not change David's external circumstances, but He changed David's heart...to acceptance. So Red Sea prayers are when you need help and you need it right now, sickness, something you need help with. Gethsemane prayers are praying for salvation, or life changing. You may pray about something in your life but it may be you that needs to change. The Israelites prayed many Red Sea prayers. Exodus 15:22-26-they were thirsty, bitter, water, wood made it sweet; Ex. 16:3,4,11,19-20-they were hungry, wanted food; Ex.17:2-7-they were thristy, strike rock for water and many others in Exodus and Numbers. Ever wondered why the nation of Israel had the need for so many Red Sea prayers? Could it be because they refused to pray a Gethsemane prayer...one that would change their hearts and attitudes instead of just their circumstance?
  15. Lol, CGA, maybe what you will be left with is a much better understanding of how to deal with your neighbor! I've always heard though, don't ever pray for patience because you'll be hit with everything imaginable.
