Pray and Don't Worry

Posted on June 25, 2017 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (0)

This wisdom has served me well over the years.  Faith is a powerful spiritual weapon.  Determination and a fierce focus are both required to make it work.  Doubt and worry create mountains.  Prayers filled with faith MOVE mountains.


Due to yet another glitch, unable to upload photos or videos on this post.  I shall remain positively focused and full of faith until the host corrects all issues.  Have a very positive, productive week!

Happy Father's Day!

Posted on June 18, 2017 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (0)

The purpose of today's post is to encourage individuals who feel sadness on this holiday because of an irresponsible dad.  I can relate, but I'm not sad.  Allow me to explain.  I was raised without a father or grandfather in my life.  The man who impregnated my mother when she was 19, has never done anything for me.  If if I passed him on the street, I would not know him.    Grandfathers on both sides of my family were deceased before I arrived.  My early years were tough because of no mature adult guidance.  I made a lot of foolish mistakes that could've been avoided if properly raised (looooooong story).    Thankfully, I prayed and took full responsibility for my own actions.  For the record, blaming does not solve problems!!  Thankfully, the Lord continues to be the BEST father figure!   I have every reason to be angry.  However, I choose to be positive and to trust God because He takes good care of me!!   Hatred is NOT an option.  I was raised by a single mother with her own serious issues.  She's been deceased for 36 years.  My dad is still living.  I'm mature enough to understand he has ugly issues requiring divine intervention. I pray for him as the Holy Spirit inspires me to.  Otherwise, I don't think about him.  I discipline myself to stay positively focused!  PERIOD.


On this holiday, I salute men who have successful raised and are currently doing a great job raising their children the right way. I slaute women who are doing the same by "standing in the gap" for absentee dads who refuse to be responsible. I salute men and women successfully raising children without formal recognition. God bless you all!



Stuffed Pita Bread

Posted on May 16, 2017 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Pita in Greek, also known as Arabic bread, Lebanese bread, or Syrian bread, is a soft, slightly leavened flatbread baked from wheat flour.  It is used in many Mediterranean, Balkan, and Middle Eastern cuisines, and resembles other slightly leavened flatbreads.  Most pita are baked at high temperatures causing the flattened rounds of dough to puff up dramatically. When removed from the oven, the layers of baked dough remain separated inside the deflated pita, which allows the bread to be opened to form a pocket.

Store-bought pita bread is inexpensive and delicious. It's an affordable way to try it for the first time.   The pictured pita bread round was toasted in a cast iron skillet on top of the stove.  Although it is traditionally baked, I love it this way.  Pita bread puffs up dramatically while cooking which is cool to see.  After melting one tablespoon of butter in the skillet, I added the pita bread round.  Toasted both sides over low to medium heat until crusty. This took 3 to 4 minutes.  I sliced it and filled the pocket with delicious cheese and eggs.  Other tasty fillings are salad, spaghetti, and creamy pasta. 


Happy Mother's Day

My mother and grandma passed 36 years ago.  Never met my grandma on dad's side.  Although this holiday is sensitive, I choose to focus on the positive by honoring mothers who lovingly care for their own, adopted, and foster children. I especially honor all dedicated mothers without an official title, who provide stability and care for children without parents for whatever reason. Mothers who teach their children to love God, teach them the Word, and teach them how to pray are a priceless treasure!!


Proverbs 31:25-29 (The Living Bible)

She is a woman of strength and dignity, and has no fear of old age. When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything she says. She watches carefully all that goes on throughout her household, and is never lazy. Her children stand and bless her; so does her husband. He praises her with these words: "There are many fine women in the world, but you are the best of them all!"
