Learning Patience

This actually goes with the post I did last week"Grabbers, Hidden Flowers, and Princesses."

 Patience is crucial. Even when a little pressure is kind, polite, and thoughtful, it still is taking control.
A Caution: Desperation leads to becoming a grabber.

Peanut Butter Cookie Cereal

Peanut Butter Cookie Cereal

  • 3 cups tap water ( I use purified water from our Berkey)
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour or Wheateena or bulgur or cracked wheat
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (Or Turbinado sugar)
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Measure the water into a medium sized saucepan. Carefully stir in the whole wheat flour with a whisk or a fork. Stir until the flour is dissolved in the water. Add the sugar, peanut butter and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Once it boils, it will need a lot of stirring. Reduce the heat and continue stirring for 3 to 5 minutes. The cereal should thicken up and smooth out. Serve in bowls with milk at the table. This recipe serves 4 or 5 people depending on appetite. Kids usually like this cereal a lot because of the peanut butter. It is a good choice for small children because it is so smooth, remember to cool it down though, so no one gets burned. Older children who are kicking the cold cereal habit are likely to enjoy this one particularly.

Tune Your Piano

Hello everyone!
 Thought I'd share some links with you today.

Here's a link on how to tune your own piano:

How To Tune Your Own Piano

I am trying to figure out  which tuning lever I need to buy.

Greg Howlett Instructional DVDs for Church Pianists


I am saving up for his Congregation Accompaniment Dvd. He has other dvds one on arrangement, reharmonization, modulations,  Theory For Church Pianists, Play By Ear, How To Chart A Song, Accompanying, Transposing, Playing Soft Music, and Playing Lead Sheets.


Hope this information proves to be beneficial for everyone.

Have a blessed day!

Grabbers, Hidden Flowers, and Princesses

The kind of female you are will determine the kind of male you attract.

A Caution: If you want a husband that is not a pervert, then act like a princess so as to attract a good, wholesome prince.

-Taken from,"Preparing To Be  A Help Meet."

 On another note: Some of you may have noticed an old post that was published today. That was by accident. I was trying to fix some of the labeling.

Silent in the Churches

As I was looking for a verse in my Bible I saw a verse that sparked me to want to do another post on something that I see in churches that is not in accordance with the Bible. This is the topic of a woman's role in the church whether your church meets in a person's home or an actual building that isn't someone's home (although IF a group of God's children get together they can still have church no matter where they are because the person is God's sanctuary).

Okay, so this won't be real long because the Bible speaks for itself and doesn't real need any explanation.

Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. 1 Corinthians 14:34

Now, there was a church we went to for awhile and the women would give prayer requests and testimonies even I did. Well, I had read that verse in the Bible and I thought about it but until a friend mentioned (that because of something I had asked about somethin' else)I had forgotten about the verse and when she did I knew I wasn't to do any such thing anymore because God's words are very clear. It is not a woman's place to speak during service in front of everyone unless the pastor out right asked a question but then again he could ask her husband or father if her husband or father doesn't know and asks his wife it is different

In Pursuit...

In Pursuit Of Happily Ever After: As a single girl, actively pursue an aggressive life of ministry, learning, and serving.

A Caution: Be patient and wait upon the Lord (and your man).

-Taken from"Preparing To Be a Help Meet

Your ministry should be to your family and younger girls. We have to set a virtuous example for those younger girls. They look up to us and are counting on us to influence them in an appropriate and righteous way. So, I suggest examining your actions, motives and attitudes. You can push them towards Christ or towards the Devil. You have a choice to let the Lord use you or not. It would be wrong to hide your light under a bushel. Our light is supposed to shine for all to see.

Matthew 5:16, Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

 Never quit learning. It is good to always be learning. With learning our thinking should change and how we handle situations. We'll never know it all but knowledge leads to wisdom.

Serving others is also important. Jesus is a perfect example of that. We should have a servants heart. For without it how then will we be willing to serve the Lord? By serving others you become humble. Remember J-O-Y( Jesus, Others, You) in that exact order.

Note: Your man may be slow in coming into your life but that just means the Lord is saying that it isn't time for either of you. You still have some growing and learning to do in order to be ready for that exact moment. Don't lose heart. Keep your head  down and be busy doing what you're supposed to be doing. And remember you already have a Beloved and that is Jesus Christ. Let Him fill the place of husband. You can say, "My Beloved is mine!"

Haven of Rest by the Gloryland Girls (Here's a beloved hymn to enjoy. One of my most favourite hymns. It is so precious to me.)

I hope  this is an encouragement to y'all.  May the Lord bless you.

My Beloved Jesus is Mine,

Age? Does It Matter?

Well, it depends.  My Dad has told me that it all depends where a person is at. I know of men who are a few years older and are not mature. They are arrogant, disrespectful, and spoiled.  And they are not thinkers. They do not know how to "keep learning". What I mean by that is I have been saying for awhile now that it is good to never stop learning, we should always be learning something new. Well, I have found that is not always the case with past "potential suitors". Dad was never blind when they came to speak to him about his princess. I have also found out from true christian testimonies how sometimes men younger than the lady are more mature and ready for marriage and a family. Their maturity level to be exactly where the older should of been. I know of a pastor's daughter marrying a man 4 years younger. You would never have known he was younger. They look to be the same age(she looks so youthful) and he was very mature. There are some who are born mature:P Really, they are just trained to be men and are taught what true masculinity is(to take responsibility, too).

Another example is a story from, "Preparing to Be  A Help Meet." A woman in her early thirties say 30-32 had met a few men her age but they turned out to be duds.  A new guy, who had recently moved in the area joined her church. I think he was 5 or 6 years younger than she was but he was different than all the others. He was mature. He knew what he wanted and he had a desire to please and serve the Lord. He was a MAN and THE MAN! The Lord worked and they married:)

I wouldn't limit God if I were you. He doesn't work within limitations. He IS so mighty and so big there is nothing He cannot do. Because of where the Lord has brought our family our circles are pretty small  but either way I won't limit God.

Also, it would be a glorious idea to pray that the Lord would lead your future beloved husband into all truth and righteousness(and that he'd be able to handle the truth no matter what it is). I originally started praying that for myself then my dad and now, for my own future beloved husband.

And remember if you ask the Lord to help you be so hidden in Him that your future dear husband will have to search Him to find you, He will do it. I know because I have been hidden so well that the right one hasn't came to dad and tackled everything he had thrown their way. Well, if he can't withstand obstacles then he isn't the right one for sure. I love how Peter Hammond made it very very difficult for his son-in-law and his son-in-law never once complained. He passed the test and married Peter's daughter. I am sure she felt her worth. The man loved her and thought she was above rubies. Can you imagine a man like that? It's hard to but I know that the things which are impossible with men are possible with God. So, hey just keep your head down and be busy doing the things you are supposed to be doing and before you know it Mr. Right will be speaking to your dad about marrying his precious daughter. What a sweet and lovely thought!

I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject.

May the Lord bless you!

Anchored in Jesus Christ,

Learn and live well: Knowledge can save your life.
A Caution: Shrugging off learning can be devastating.

~From Preparing To Be A Help Meet

Learn now not later. If you put it off it could cause problems later when you are married.
