Can You Guess?

Yet again..... :)

Isa 66:1-2

Thus says the LORD, "Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest? For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being," declares the LORD. "But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word."

Lasagna Supper

Only one thing to say to about this picture - it stinks! I have ZERO picture-taking abilities! PLEASE forgive me; I wish I could take pictures as wonderfully as Abby does, but then again, everyone is blessed with different talents and gifts..... :)
Just some verses on blessings and the blessed:
Psa 84:5
How blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee; In whose heart are the highways [to Zion]!
Psa 84:12
O LORD of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in Thee!
Psa 94:12
Blessed is the man whom Thou dost chasten, O LORD, And dost teach out of Thy law;
Psa 119:2
How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all [their] heart.
Jer 17:7
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD."
Jam 1:12
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which [the Lord] has promised to those who love Him.
Rev 1:3
Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.

Supper Consisted of This.....

Yes, this was what was under all those covered bowl in the last picture/post... :)
1. Grilled, herby chicken
2. Caesar Salad
3. Creamy, fresh apple sauce
4. Fresh whole wheat, flax dinner rolls

Very good, and of-course for me, the best part.... inexpensive and yet a healthy, balanced meal! ;)
Psa 119:16-17
I shall delight in Thy statutes; I shall not forget Thy word. Deal bountifully with Thy servant, That I may live and keep Thy word.

What's For Supper?

Abby: "What's for supper?"
Lydia: "Good stuff, good stuff!"
Psa 119:11
Thy word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against Thee.

Treat For the Evening!

Strawberry & Banana Milkshakes (or, as we call them "Slushies", because they contain no ice cream! )

1Sa 16:18

Then one of the young men answered and said, "Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite who is a skillful musician, a mighty man of valor, a warrior, one prudent in speech, and a handsome man; and the LORD is with him."

Chicken Pot Pie

Homemade chicken pot pie(s) are so much better tasting than ones you get out of the freezer section at Publix. Or? ;)
Ecc 11:7, 9a
The light is pleasant, and [it is] good for the eyes to see the sun.... Rejoice, young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood.

Flax Seed and Oatmeal Bread

YES! This was my specialty for the week. And, yes, we do love just about anything with flax seeds in it. :)
Psa 22:27
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, And all the families of the nations will worship before Thee.

Valentine's Day Cake

This was our Valentine's Day/brother Oliver's Birthday cake this February. It was a vanilla cake with cream cheese icing! :) Pluss the prettiest colored sprinkles!
1Co 13:1-13
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have [the gift of] prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed [the poor], and if I deliver my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. Love is patient, love is kind, [and] is not jealous; love does not brag [and] is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong [suffered], does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails; but if [there are gifts of] prophecy, they will be done away; if [there are] tongues, they will cease; if [there is] knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Back and Happy!

Fresh "German" whole wheet bread, filled with flax seeds was part of our supper this evening! And, boy, was it nice to get back to that baking again!
Psa 22:27
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, And all the families of the nations will worship before Thee.
