Food for Thought



 Break your problem into parts, and handle one part at a time.

 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.”…

(Matthew 6:19-20a)

He would gift-wrap it, put it out on the curb in front of his house, and invariably someone driving by would see that wrapped box, stop, and pick it up. And the man would be behind the curtains, watching those people drive away with their gift-wrapped garbage!

So many times, that’s what the devil does. He just takes the things of this world and wraps them up so beautifully. But what we get isn’t treasure-it turns out to be trash.

Don’t let the devil cheat you-don’t cling to the worthless things of this world, but use your resources and energy wisely to invest in souls and store up eternal treasures in Heaven!

Add up everything you have that money can’t buy and death can’t take away.

May the good Lord bless and keep you in his hands.

Sylvia’s Corner



I heard the horn a blowing, and knew just what it meant,                   Gabriel shouting, “Behold, I’m the one the Lord has sent, Angels appearing everywhere, singing, “Praise be to God”

They were from the river, where Angel’s  feet have trod. Looking across the landscape, as far as I could see, Cemeteries were opening up, bodies coming by me. The bodies were transforming, right before my eyes,

All were as beautiful Angels, going upward to the skies.  Then I saw my Momma, who was twenty-seven when she died, Now like a beautiful Angel, “Hey Momma, it’s me, I cried!”

Then she was smiling at me, while drifting out of sight, That’s when I knew, everything is going to be alright!  Everything was of one accord, no prejudices or blame, Cause in the eyes of Jesus, all who are saved are the same, Then vividly I recalled, that very descriptive Bible Verse, That at the time of Rapture, the dead in Christ rise first.

Then I heard myself saying, “Oh Lord, What can I do?” I would love to see Jesus, just to say that, “I love You”, My body began changing, I heard a “whooshing” sound, I started rising upward, left my crutches on the ground.

Onward through the clouds, and continuing on my flight, Angels singing, “Praise the  Lord,”then I saw HIS LIGHT, The last thing that I recalled, as I was drifting out of sight, Mommas pretty smile, and everything’s going to be alright!

Depending on how much chicken you have, add or remove amounts of ingredients.

If your husband is like mine you will add some form of hot sauce. You may serve salad in croissants or your choice of bread, or if you wish you may serve with crackers.
