Remember To Pray for Your Husband

This year I celebrated being with my husband in marriage for 34 years. What a wonderful thing to say that I have trusted, had confidence in and loved the man in my life that many years. Together we built a family that is strong and one that is a force in this world. Praise God that he held this marriage together as there were of course good days and bad, happy days and sad, days that I would rather forget and those that I will cherish forever. Together we have raised our own 6 children as well as countless others. We were blessed with 4 grand children , nieces and nephews and hopefully more to come. 

One thing I was taught early on by a lady that I cherish and she may not be aware of how important she was to me. She accepted me into church when I felt I was the farthest away from God in my life. She taught me how to love my children enough to teach them about God ,  Pray for my husband daily as he is the head of the family and how to take time for myself to study the word of God. Recently I found this post and thought I would share it

Five ways I pray for my husband

Protection – this is far more than just getting him back home from work or errands. He needs a hedge of protection around his mind, eyes, ears, mouth, hands, and feet. His whole being needs to be protected from the things of the world. (I Peter 5:8Ephesians 6:11-18)

Obedience to God – My husband needs to be obedient to God’s will for his life. Whatever God’s will is I pray that my husband will be willingly obedient to it. (Proverbs 3:5-6James 4:17)

Leadership – God designed the husband to be the leader in the marriage and home. I pray that I am the kind of wife my husband can be that leader for; I don’t want to be a hindrance that causes him to not be able to lead. (Ephesians 5:23-25I Peter 3:7)

Wisdom – My husband needs wisdom in everything. I pray that his heart and eyes are open to understanding and that he will continue to fear the Lord. (Proverbs 1:5-7Ephesians 1:16-19)

Strength – My husband’s job requires strength, living a Christian life does too. I pray my husband’s physical strength will continue so he can work to his fullest. I also pray my husband's spiritual strength will be strong in the Lord in is daily life. (Ephesians 3: 16Ephesians 6:10Joshua 1:9)

I pray that God will be the center of our marriage. He is the only One we can truly depend on to keep ourselves pure and our marriage pure and together.

WE ARE THE WORLD - Original - 1985

The year was 1985.... There is a famine going on in Africa. Ethiopia and surrounding area has seen a civil war being fought for 20 years. The land has been haunted with droughts and poor harvest. There are millions that are starving and suffering from disease while the country's own government spends money on weapons instead of helping their own people. 

One individual from Great Britain by the name of Bob Geldof will inspire others to wage a war of their own. A war of fundraising to help the citizens of Ethiopia. The group organized by Harry Belafonte and Ken Kragon would create a record to help raise money. Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie would al help to create a memorable record that would be used to help save a country. 

We Are The World – 

We are the world, We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Words and Music by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie

Quincy Jones would bring together a group of 45 musicians that would record a song overnight that would help raise the needed funds. The group known as "U.S.A" for Africa would be established at the AMA music awards The song "We Are The World" was released and quickly rose to the top of the charts reaching #1 just 3 months after the release/ More than 1.5 million copies were sold. Including one for our house as my Mother bought us a copy as well. One single record made many positive changes including helping others to set off their own charitable projects.

Moment In History That Did Not Reach Space

My mother can recall childhood memories of events in history that in one way or another changed the world. For instance she can recall the day that Pearl Harbor was bombed and the day that JFK was shot and other events. Perhaps you can recall your own memories of events during your life time such as the day the planes went into the twin towers in NYC. Yes that is for sure one that my own children will recall. One that I personally remember occurring was the tragic challenger spaceship. I was sitting in class watching the space ship liftoff. 


A bit of history:

President Reagan was an active president that believed strongly in NASA. The liftoff attracted a lot of attention and one crew member had drawn lots of attention more than others. Christa McAuliffe was not an astronaut but rather a school teacher. In space she was scheduled to lead discussions for others to follow.  

January 28 1986 was the date of the proposed liftoff. The weather caused delays and the engineers at the Kennedy Space Center found many technical delays as well. The weather was an unusual cold wave and this resulted in solid rocket booster 0-ring joints freezing up thus creating issues with the shuttle working properly. Only 73 seconds after the shuttle lift off the orbiter broke apart into pieces killing all 7 astronauts on board

The challenger was the first space shuttle to be destroyed in a mission accident. The pieces that were collected are buried in a missile silos at the launch complex at Cape Canaveral

Preparing First Aid Kit for the Car

 At times if you are like me you may feel as if you live in the car. The amount of hours that we can put in a day are outstanding. Having things that you want must also includes items you need. A first aid kit with essential items should be included in that list as well. Getting a bump, bruise, bite or other simple injury often can happen when traveling in the car. The only thing is that there is not a lot of space inside of the car and a first aid kit that is kept in your car should have all you need but does not need to take up space. Perhaps what you should first consider is what type of first aid kit will you need. 

When purchasing or preparing a first aid kit for your car the first thing to take not of is what will it be kept in. A box will work better here as it can keep the kit more organized. A bag will be easy to squash and loose items out of. A clear box like those made in the storage bin container aisle at the store would work great so you can see what is in the box. In addition,  a container with handles and divided departments is something to consider as well. 

So what should go in the box?? 

First a few things that most may not think of. The name of the family doctors, pediatricians, EMS, tow professionals, Medical Consent Forms for each member of the family as well as medical history forms for each member of the family. Forms such as this will save time when in an emergency there may not be a lot of time 

  • Adhesive Band-Aids for covering cuts
  • Gauze pads for treating wounds
  • Safety pins for closing bandages
  • Adhesive tape
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Antiseptic and hydrocortisone cream for skin inflammation and rashes
  • Antihistamine for allergic reactions
  • Antiseptic wipes to sanitize your hands
  • Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or other pain relieving medication
  • Aloe Vera to treat mild burns
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect bite relief pads
  • Cotton balls
  • Cotton swabs
  • Vaseline
  • A digital thermometer
  • Tweezers
  • Curved scissors—the medical kind that doesn’t have a pointy edge, and is used for cutting clothing away from an injury
  • A needle
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Saline solution for eye washing or cleaning wounds
If you have babies or young members of the family you should include the needed medication for their age as well.

Be Careful Out There Preparing for that Winter Drive

 Our weather today is a bit snowy. Yes it has been snowing for a bit and not sure how long it will snow. There are individuals at our house that work midnoc shift. I always worry about them driving back and forth for work. My daughter who is 34 drives just a few minutes to work but my son and his wife will be driving a bit over an hour to get to work tonight. Perhaps you or someone you know is in this predicament if so here are some tips to take note of.

  • Make sure to keep your vehicle stocked with supplies you may need in an emergency. Preparing a winter kit for your car will help ensure you are prepared for the winter weather if something may happen
  • Not only in winter weather but any time is a great time to make sure your first aid kit is in the car and stocked
  • flashlight in case you are out like my kids will be at night or in weather where it is hard to see
  • make sure you keep a couple of blankets in the car in case you get stopped or your heater is not working properly
  • Small shovel as well as kitty litter or sand to help give your wheels traction

  • Booster cables something one of my sons learned the hard way to keep a set in your car as you never know when you may need them
  • Another nifty product that we swear by in the winter weather is windshield fluid with deicer built in 
  • Snow brush and ice scrappers are very important to have to aid in removing snow and ice from the windows
  • An extra set of warm clothes as well as an extra hat, gloves, boots, socks will help make sure that if you are in the weather to long that you can change to be dry
  • extra gas in the car will also help if you get delayed 
  • water and food is also important if you get stuck in traffic or simply stuck

Preparing for winter weather is always important. It helps get you ahead of the weather before it is here. From winter tires to having an extra blanket in the car being prepared is the first step of safety.

sugar - 2 cup
baking cocoa powder - 3/4 cup
baking soda - 1 1/2 tsp
baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
egg - 2
milk - 1 cup
vegetable oil - 1/2 cup
vanilla extract - 2 tsp
boiling water - 1 cup

Baking Idea: substitute 2 nestle drinking chocolate powder mixed with 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 2tsp instant coffee. This mixture helps give it a different delicious taste. 

Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
Grease and flour 2 pans of 9 inch size.
Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, together. Sift twice to get a fluffy porous cake. Put it in a big mixing bowl.

Using an electric mixer beat the milk, egg, sugar, vanilla, vegetable oil, (chocolate chips if any)  for a minute. Add it to the dry ingredients in the big mixing bowl.  Mix well.
Bring 1 cup water to boil. Pour in to the mixing bowl. Mix well.
Pour in to baking pans and bake for 40 - 45 mins.
Let cool completely before slicing.
Time to eat cake. 

This recipe will make 2 cakes of 9x9 inch squares or two 9 inch round cakes or one 9 x13 cake.
Before baking,  the cake batter may seem to be very thin and runny. But the cake will come out perfect. 
recipe resource

Serve the cake iced ... any chocolate icing will do. If you choose not to ice then perhaps you may want to pierce the top of the cake and pour a mix of 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup water over the top of the cake. This will help keep the cake moist and delicious

Stealing Sunday on a Monday

well, I have lived with my self 50 years I believe I know myself but every once in a while I will surprise myself

not really looking good but not into high fashion

7. Should politicians be held to the same legal standards as everyone else?

Yes and perhaps even a stronger standard than others

There are many great ones the type of music would be a mix of country, religion and bluegrass I think Garth Brooks did a fine job.


9. Do you try to write/say what you are feeling in a true and simple way?

 yes I do and in as easy of way so all understand

10.What is your worst daily habit?

snacking which I know is not good for me I still often do

12.Do you like the taste of sweet or salt?

I am not one that prefers either but if I had to pick I would say salt. 

13.Are you very precise about what words you use to describe your feelings and thoughts?

Like many others i do not share my feelings of how I feel and when asked often say "I'm Fine"

14.What do you feel the most guilty about?
