Fellowship

"Two are better than one,
   because they have a good return for their labor:


 If either of them falls down,
   one can help the other up.


                    But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
   


 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
   But how can one keep warm alone?


Though one may be overpowered,  two can defend themselves. "A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
 -Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Surround yourselves with good friends. Be wise when you choose your friends, they might not hold your hands when you fall. Make time for friends and family.

from: wise woman builds her home.

Blessings!

It is a beautiful day for end of December. Outdoor is windy, but inside is warm. The sun is hitting the windows, it is warm and bright. I had 4 girls for sleepover, I was surprised, the girls were great!
Since there is no school this week,  my kids get to have friends over and sleepovers.
We have kids almost everyday. My boys will go to friends house and my daughter and I will spend girls time. I look forward for quality time with each one of my kids.
In this society, it is important to give them our time not the gadget they want.
It has been such a blessing week so far. May God get all the glory!!!

Merry Christmas!





      Where should I begin how much I love Christmas. Yes the gifts, the lights, the bake goods, and the excitement of the kids. The reason for Christmas started when God wrap Himself in the virgin Mary womb and He was born to die for me and the man kind.

       You see man kind was deep in Sin, and we were separated from God. And the only way to reunite us was, if Himself (God) became flesh and save the nation. "He loved us so much and He send His own begotten son, and whoever believes in Him shall not parish, but have everlasting life."

       Because of His birth, we get to see this wonderful season. The gift(Jesus) is free, receive Him!
My kids has been counting all week. Tonight, Jason said,"mom, Christmas eve is the most torture time for kids, the waiting to open present is killing us." What can I say, I have selfish typical kids. .
  The table is set, all the prep is done, we read the story of Jesus Christ.
 Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

God is so good!!!!

I was walking and the sun was hitting my face and it felt so good, even though it was 45 degrees.  I closed my eyes, and all I said was God, you are so good, you are a good God! And the Holy spirit spoke to me, no matter how dark or cold it is, all it matter is there is  a light. It is the same thing with us, no matter what the circumstances looks dark, there is the light in us. He is the Holy Spirit. We wait for the Messiah return, but God is saying I am already here . We blame God for everything. He is not to blame, He gave us the free will. We (men kind) made the world we are today. Yes, life can be tough, and  also life can be good! 
God is good all the time! Because:
God gives you Peace in the middle of the Chaos!
God gives you strength when you are weak!
God gives you joy when you go through tough times! 
Live your life well!!

Weight loss tips

  I guess as you get older the metabolism decline. We need to workout and eat better if we need to see some results. Here are some tips:

Weight-Loss and Detox: Add 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a 1 or 2 liter water bottle.  Drink this throughout the day to cleanse your body and kidneys all day long. I do it twice a day.


Stress: When you are stress, it is hard to lose weight. Since you can't change anything by stressing, take time and meditate in the word of God. Be content and find something you are grateful about.

Waking up in the morning and looking at my kids is the best gift ever.
Life is what you make it, so find joy in living!!
Blessings!!

Beautful day!

          Yesterday was sunny and beautiful day. I can't believe how beautiful day it was. It seemed like we accoplished a lot. The kids and I cleaned up the house, and laundry.

          We watched a movie, baked a cake. Put the the outside Christmas light on.

          We spent time worshipping and study the bible at home.
We had a quite and pleasant dinner.

          I was able to run to the store and bought a couple of christmas gift for the kids.

           What more can I ask, Thank you God!!!!!

Weight loss




            I just don't do any diet program. It seems to me how long can you follow such a restriction. Since I gained 25 lbs this past year, I  really need to lose at least 25 lbs.  

Here is what I plan to do:
1. Drink a lots of water. Measure your intake and document it.
2. Eat green chilled pepper, Spicy foods contain chemical compounds that kick the metabolism.
3. Make sure you take enough fiber, and eat enough protein.
4. Build a muscle. Muscle uses about 6 calories a day, and each pound of fat burns 2 calories daily.
5. High intense aerobic workout. 
I love to cook at home, and by doing that you can control what you eat. 

So, God help me to follow through!

Sabbath Shalom!

       God knew best for human kind from the beginning of the creation. In Genesis, after six day working, He rested!

      If God Himself takes a day of rest, why do we neglect that? It is good for us, to sit and to look back and see that accomplishment or failure we have done. I am guilty of that, I am writing as the lord ministering to me. 

     I hear the quite whisper telling me, "child, come sit with me." A father is seeking time with you and me. How precious is that?

     You might be busy serving the church, and that is great! That is your work as a body of Christ. Just because you are busy with something has to do a work for God, it doesn't mean you are spending time with God. 

     Rest in God, it is so good for your soul! Jesus is your Peace! Fall in His feet and let Him minister to you!
Sabbath Shalom my friends!

Honor

      We expect our kids to honor and respect us. Our kids can learn better by watching us honroing our parent, teachers, elders in the church and in the community.

      Don't use your parent as a babysitter or Santa. Call them just to say hi when you don't need them for something. Honor them by meeting their needs and caring for them. In todays society, there is no honor for leaders and it is because what they see at home.

       Let your children see you visiting nursing homes, and baking food for friends when they are sick.
We can't blame the system, honor starts at home.
Change your home, and change the world.


Deuteronomy 5:16   

    "Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Women in America have too much in their plate!

     
    Women in America have too much in our hand. Women in America work 8 hour/day, and taking kids to activity. They have to cook a meal, help with homework and make sure everyone emotional needs is met. At the end of the day, the women have to look good and stay up to please the husband.

     I wanted to share this because it hurts me to see when the parent choose to earn more money than to staying home and spend more time with the kids.

    Live your life simple, and cut the excess things and invest in time instead of in material.

    We can change the world if we change our family!


Be blessed!

Small business



     I am trying to stop my other blog, and I wanted to post them in this one.


     Having a good support team can be one of the most important aspects in having a successful business. Friends, family or other business associates can make a world of difference when it comes to giving advice, uplifting spirits, and motivating to move forward.  

      In new businesses especially, there may come a time when things are not going according to plan, bringing discouraging thoughts which is when having the right people in your corner to carry you through can be just the boost you need.

       New businesses such as Custom Flipz that have dared to enter the real estate market in times where most people are not able to see the opportunities available we are often faced with negative criticism which can bring doubt to our own beliefs making ideas and goals that were once considered to be original and our own no longer ours but a combination of other thoughts from those people around us.
  
      Building positive relationships not only can bring encouragement but can also be examples of what to do in order to keep your business afloat, but those same relationships can also reflect what not to do by learning from their misfortunes.

       Scheduling weekly meetings or daily conversations with someone with the same business interested and goals as you often lead to bigger and better ideas and can help you stay focused because people often need feedback to gain another persons point of view.

Thankgiving

  "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
 It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
-Melody Beattie

Blessings

Blessing is knowing your family are under one roof. It is when you wake your kids up, and they want snuggle when they come down from bed. You know you have a healthy family when your kids are jumping from the stairs.  


 Blessing is when you have a kitchen full of dishes, and you wonder if somehow someone will offer to clean. 


Blessing is when you get the hug from your kids and they say they love you. But you know they just want something. 


Find something to be happy about. I bet you, you will find one.  


We have the choice to be happy or miserable! I chose to to be happy, how about you?

Bill Cosby

"I'm 76 and I'm Tired" – by Bill Cosby
I'm 76
. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired.   
 

I'm tired
 of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.   
  

I'm tired
 of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honour"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.   
I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia, New Zealand, UK, America and Canada, while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..   
 
I'm tired
 of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired
 of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off? 
 
I'm tired
 of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.   
 
I'm really tired
 of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems. 

I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's bedeck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government. 
 
Yes, I'm damn tired.
 But I'm also glad to be 76... Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and her children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in. 
 

There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

This is your chance to make a difference.

Jesus take the wheel!

      If you sit on the back of the bicycle, you really don't have the control of the bicycle at all. The same thing when you led God lead you.

     I didn't know what I was signing into when I ask God to take control of my life. It was easy for me if I want bless someone or to care just for me. I had no problem making decisions. I had so much faith in me until I started walking with Jesus. 

      I started to fear as I start to let God gear the bicycle. I don't have the total control of the bicycle anymore. What if God takes me to a place I didn't want to go or turn the gear in different direction? Doubt and fear started to attack me. There are times I battle with God asking,"God, I hope you are not thinking to do this or that, are you?" 

     Even though I don't know where God will take me, but I am excited!  There is no going back for me. I am like a child full of faith. I get reminded, when I want hold my kids hand and they move their hand away. Because, they think they can walk fast, and sometimes they hold my hand tight to feel secure. 

        I have many ideas, great ideas but I want guidance. If I hurry and make those decisions, I really don't want regret it. So, here I go choosing to follow Jesus. I am waiting and asking God to use me.

     "Trust in the lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding."
Proverbs 3:5

Italian donuts

Pin It
                                                                                             


There is nothing I love than to escape to the kitchen to cook, not so much the cleaning.
I saw this recipe on food network a year ago by Giada,

and I been baking it since then. My kids love it. This takes

about 25 minutes.

It makes 2 dozen doughnuts

Ingrediens:
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, at room temperature
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar (plus more for topping)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 eggs
Vegetable oil, for frying
Roll in Sugar and cinnamon mix. 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon
For the doughnuts: In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, water, sugar, and salt over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for 10 seconds. Remove the pan from the heat and add the flour. Using a wooded spoon, quickly stir the mixture until all the flour is fully incorporated and forms a thick dough.
Return the pan to the heat and stir continuously for 2 minutes. Scrape the mixture into a stand mixture fitted with a paddle attachment. With the machine running on medium speed, add the eggs, 1 at a time until fully incorporated. Beat the mixture for 4 to 5 minutes until thick and glossy. Refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes.
In a large bottomed saucepan, pour oil to fill the pan about a third of the way. Heat over medium  Using a small ice cream scoop carefully drop scoops(1 tablespoon) of the dough into the oil.  Cook for about 3 minutes, turning occasionally, until the donuts are golden and puffed. Make sure you don't crowd the pan.
When the donuts is cool enough to handle, roll in sugar and cinnamon mix. You can also dip in melted chocolate. Serve immediately.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Train up a child


          "Her children rise up, and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praiseth her, saying:Many daughters have done worthily, But thou excellest them all. -- Proverbs 31:28-29.

         I believe training our children is about  letting them have a vision. As they walk through their journey, they need to know there is ups and downs. In those times, God must be glorified! It is about holding on and leaning on to our creator and the lord Jesus Christ all the way.

          We can't tell them God will rescue them. God doesn't always rescue us, but He does make us stronger through the battle. And we can't teach them by saying, claim it and you shall have it. No,that is wrong. God hates lazy people.

         We need to teach them to ask God's wisdom and to work and study hard. God does gives favor to those that walk with him. But it require obedient and to focus on the vision. 

         God help us as we raise our kids! I know I hear from my kids, Mom,it is not fair! But I know deep in my heart I believe I am doing it for their best.
As a parent, we are not always right......So humble yourself

Thanksgiving

      I am thankful for my children. They are absolutely amazing! I expect more at times and I get reminded not to. They are smart, loving and very kind!

      My kids wouldn't hurt anything. Truly, children are a gift from God. If everything is going wrong in life and we have our children, and they should be enough to be grateful.
The soccer practice, games, gymnastic, music lessons, friends........I mean my life is all about my kids. And I love it!

     I miss my siblings and my mom, but what do I do except be miserable. God has given wonderful kids to love them and to care. I better do it to my best.  Of course, it is by the help of God!

Thanksgiving

        Jim and Ginger are God's blessings to us. They are the best! I love them so much! I am very grateful for them. I wish I were close to them, but we try to visit them once a year. 

         Whenever the kids go to visit, they have a blast! When I told the kids we are not going to visit them this year, they get devistated. Jim is such a good man and full of energy. This man doesn't sit until he feeds everyone and wash all the dishes away. Ginger and I sit and enjoy our day.

       Truly, If I want to write how much a blessing they have been to me and to my kids it will take a week. They are the kind of family(friends) I can call them anytime and about anything. I feel free when I am around them as if they are my birth parent if not more. Next to Emily is Lisa, Jim and Ginger daughter, my sister.

She is wonderful and so much like mom.
My prayer is God will keep Ginger and Jim healthy and keep them safe. I am praying they will know the Lord Jesus Christ as the savior! I grew up filled with religion and I want everyone to experience the relationship with Christ!

Trust

        For a moment, Satan was happy over me this week. I had this great business idea and I mentioned to someone and  it was taken away right before my eye! I was so discourage and shocked! I text my friends, "Is Satan in control in earth?" If God is in control, why would God allow this? Off course, if you surround with people that loves you and know the word, you will get the truth.

        I looked in the bible, crying....my eye went right to Palms 41: 3. "My tears have been my food day and night, While they continually say to me, Where is your God?" And I kept crying and the lord gave me such a PEACE that only come from God.

       The Lord spoke to my heart, He closed that door. I got up from my knee as if something was lifted up from my shoulder.
I want encourage you, because I was encourage when the Holy Spirit led me to Psalms 41:11."By this I know You are pleased with me, Because my enemy doesn't triumph over me."

       When things didn't go as you planned it, don't be discourage. Be glad and Trust God!

Let me know what you think, leave comment, let's discuss and click on follow my blog.

Thanksgiving

         I am thankful for my siblings. It it a blessing to me having my two brothers and four sisters. One of my sister passed away when she was seven years old.

        Growing up in a big family didn't seem big to me at all. We care for one another. The older one looks over on the young one. I never thought I will be away from my siblings for so long. I miss them like crazy. It breaks my hearts to see the days are going fast before my eyes.

        I know the love we have for one another will never change. We were very close family. I am grateful, because when I think of them, all the memories I had is priceless.

       I love each one of them. I am thankful how God blessed me to have the most wonderful siblings.

Thanksgiving


         I am very thankful for my parent. My father was an amazing, loving and the most generous person I have known. 

         My dad couldn't rest knowing people out there starving. In 1977 in Ethiopian calendar, it was horrible hunger. I remember when I was a little girl, there was a biggest barrel and they were cooking pasta in it and feed the people. And at the end of the day they sleep in our balcony. My dad will wake up in the mid night to check on them if they were cold. They have to leave in the morning before the police comes. So he wakes up early to make sure they have something to eat before they leave.

        It is a treasure I carry to today. As long as I have something to bless, I will continue to bless others. And my mother still lives and it is sad for me that she is far away. I am very grateful for her.

        She is an amazing smart woman. There wasn't a day that she has left my mind. I think of her a lot specially just before bed. Even though we are far way from eachother, I am very grateful to come from in a very rich culture and a big family. There are so many blessings and memories I will cherish foever.

Thankgiving

 I am grateful for God who loves me so much!
I am grateful, because I am saved by the grace of God.
 I am grateful that Jesus Christ died for me. God has been on my side always. He is amazing, Marvelous, magnificent, wonderful, and loving God! The more I know Him, the more I want get close to Him. I am so fascinated about my God, Jesus Christ. Walking with Christ is like"ha" moment for me. 
I catch my self saying,"wow, that was God!" more often. It is like everyday finding his grace, mercy and love around me through family, friends or nature.

      John 3:16-17 Said," For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

       What are you grateful today?

Blessings

Jacob came home from school very excited and he said, no home work for two days. I said why? He said,"Because, we have a field trip tomorrow." And I said, oh ok. He said,"Mom, it is a blessing! And He ran to the house and grab his book and started reading. Remember, it is raining, so he didn't ask to go out. Which is what they usually do.
Can you believe it? Should I be concerned? I guess, we all look a blessing in different way. I thought it was funny!

Love



     "Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth, for your love is better than wine." Song of songs 1:1

     Song of songs was not my favorite chapter at all. But now I am in love with the chapter. I believe for the reason is, because I know the love of God that has for me. For your love is better than wine.

       The Holy Spirit speak of wine because wine drink affects mind. On our spiritual level the Holy Spirit is the one who affects our thinking and revealing the mind of Christ.

     The expression of His love is greater in my life because as God expresses His love to me. Many of us do not know how to receive His love because our hearts are not open.

      I know many christians walk still in condemnation. My question is how can you believe God if you can't believe his word? Get to know Him, He is there in your joy and in your deepest struggle.

Tear down and build it up

    
      We woke up resting well. We don't have an early game, so I was hoping we will take it easy this morning.

      After breakfast, the boys were wrestling. So, I told them go beat something else. And Jason said, what can I beat? I said, not your brother.   
 
      Here they are, they found old small chair and table. They tear it down and they are trying to built it in to a box. And I am watching them and enjoying the morning. Super Saturday!!!!

Rest in His presence.

                Song of Songs 5:2:
      "I slept, but my heart is awake, Is it the voice of my beloved! He knocks, saying, "open for me, my treasure, my darling, my perfect one; For my head is covered with dew, My locks with the drops of the night."


      Sleep is an important part of our life. Without sleep there would not have been a dreamers. In the state of  rest God God can reveal to us where we are going and Where or Who He is.


    I learn if we wait in fasting and prayer, If we make time for Him, He visits us because we are prepared, but He comes often in the most unlikely hour when we are not ready. And He says, 'Let me in, let go your imagination and anxiety."

    Live your life to your best, just live it right and don't let your works to get you in His presence. He loves you the way you are, you don't need to make him look good. HE IS THE PERFECT ONE!


Have you let go and made a room for your Saviour?

What you don't know can hurt you

I am learnign everyday new informations regarding the genetic modified foo. It shocks me and I wanted to share it with others. Do you know GMO crops were never tested over the long haul, and now the very worm the farmers wanted to avoid are developing a resistance to the GM corn. Organically grown crops are being contaminated by wind and cross pollination, and farmers are being sued for stealing‘ Monsanto‘s property. If they can‘t afford to fight the monster company, they are losing their farms and lifetime investments. Monsanto hires private thugs to secretly inspect organic farms in order to accomplish these take downs. The predatory Big Ag companies have declared war on smaller farmers and us. Scientists believe that once the distorted DNA of these plants go into our bodies, that our own DNA is invaded and that our intestines can literally become pesticide factories. Monsanto has put up vicious attacks on scientists who try to warn about GMO dangers. Recently the USDA ignored an urgent letter from a Purdue scientist about a newly discovered pathogen in GMOs, pleading with them not to approve Monsanto‘s new GM alfalfa.
The USDA has even defied an appeals court order not to approve it until an environmental impact study was conducted, but they approved it anyway.

"Scientist under attack", Must buy this book and decide what you want do about it. Watch the trail"

How can you love one child from another?

    
        I am convinced there is no good things on TV anymore. I was checking different channel and saw Anderson show again. And I heard a parents saying, they have favorite kids that they love more and I was shocked! How is that possible?   

      I love my kids all the same. Of course the things they do can irritate me and amazes me from one and other. How can you love more one child from the other? I am going to speak on God's view. I love my kids the same, I wish I have more time to spend with my kids. I would love to see the day will go slow, I feel like they are growing fast on me.
     
     Look at them, how can you not love them all the same! Even more than I can! And where do they found all this stupid mess it people on the television to corrupt our future generation.

Where is common sense

      I came back from Jogging and decide to stretch and watch the news. In channel 3, the Anderson Cooper show was on. I saw him on the news all over the world as a reporter, but now, I guess he has his own show.

      He had a guest and she was talking about psychic. How do we became a society with no common sense. Why do we give them attention? Talking to the dead, what? They are dead! Connecting with the other world? Really?

      This days, it is so normal to look stupid, I think eventually our kids will be confused to know what is stupid and what is wisdom.

       If you share the love of God, and telling them Jesus Christ died for you. If you tell them to let go the fear and the anger to the mighty God that loves them, they can't wait until you shut up. But, a psychic comes and says her own imagination, and she gets all the attention. In the real world we call that mental illness. God help us!

      May God give our children wisdom and draw them near to you!

It is a beautiful morning!

I was surprise to see the trees are changing already, It is absolutely beautiful! We woke up this morning at 6:45AM to go to soccer game. It was so nice to wake up seeing the trees, they are becoming colorful and I enjoy driving my kids to the game. And they won three weekends. We stopped by Dunkin Donuts and came home for a little rest. I opened the door and windows, drinking my coffee and listening to my kids practicing their music instruments. What more can I ask, but to say thank you for all the blessings that the lord has gave me. Bless the lord of heaven and earth and the lord Jesus Christ!

Praying for a friend

         Lately, it has been hard to sit in front of my computer and blog, because of  my friend's situation. I don't know how long she have to suffer, but I would like God to intervene on her behalf.

        I know, there is not much I can do to help. But, I just want to be there for her to love her, to listen and to pray.  The system today is a mess! No body is helping!

        God said, in the last days the work of the evil get worse. And He said to rejoice!  I tried to encourage my friend, but I can't say to her to rejoice.

        I know I have to continue tell her, God is there, even in the dark time! He will never leave you, nor forsake you. I praying every second that God will remove evil in her life and give her PEACE!

Honoring Authority

                                         Honoring Authority

      In our society, it is rare that children fear authority. I remember when I was young, we got up and gave our seat if we see elder people walk in to the room.

     If we want change the country, it has to be birth at home. The white house can't make many change on their own. We need to live to be an example to our children. Make sure to watch what you said around your children.

    The person doesn't honor his parent, they are definitely don't honor God. When you discover that God will only give you authority over others when you show that you can come under authority yourself.

    Romans 13:1-3 says, "Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God."

Men in our society

      In early days, a man was well appreciated for just being a provider. Today, Men and woman are still trying to find their role in the marriage. Men are so pressured today at work and at home. Growing up, the minute my father walks in to the house, he was honored. No one expect him to wash the dishes, to change diapers or to put the kids to bed . Dad was home, everything comes to place. Everyone makes sure he sits in his comfortable chair, and food was serve with out any question. Once, he got some rest, we are all over him. Just laughter and talk.

       In our society today men are put in the place which doesn't come naturally. They were told to listen to a woman conversation. Some programs and TV shows teaches men to pretend as they are listening. The gender is so mess it up today because they don't know what their role is. I love the idea women can work and take care of their family, which is great! 
  
      I hear some women saying, cooking is not my thing, that is his, Really? I believe if a woman wanted to learn how to cook, she can. We need to stop pressuring men and treating the men in front of the kids like they don't know anything. Men are not created the same as women. Men and women have weakness and strength. We are to build one another, if the man lacks something and the women has it, that is what it makes it whole.

      For some women that doesn't have a husband, train your son's and daughter. If you are divorced, be careful not to speak negative about your-ex in front of your kids.

      I believe if we continue to live mistreating men as it is, we will continue see divorce rate increases

Yom Kippur( the day of atonement).


       Yom Kippur is one of YHWH's (God's) appointed times on His calendar. He says that anyone who ignores it should be cut off from His people.
YHWH calls it a holy convocation - as are all of His feasts.


    The point to grasp is that the Hebrew word for convocation is pronounced mikraw. It means a rehearsal. Which just points to one of the reasons it's poor theology to say these rehearsals have been done away. Rehearsals continue until opening night.

    The Feasts of Yahweh are rehearsals for things to come. So, if you are not practicing the rehearsals, you can't fully understand what's happening when the curtain rises on the real Day of Atonement - an event we should see soon.
It's so easy to "believe"
When you practice the rehearsal
The real Day of Judgment will be both a wonderful and a horrible day.
Wonderful for those written in the Book of Life.
Horrible for the hundreds of millions who are not.
The days of Noah are a shadow picture Yom Kippur as well.For 120 years Noah and his sons prepared the Ark. The building process itself presented a huge opportunity to witness to the peoples. But none listened.


     One day, YHWH told Noah to get inside. YHWH Himself then closed and sealed the door. The time for repentance was over.For Noah and his family it was a wonderful day because they were safe as the rains and the floods came. At the same time, it was a horrible day for those outside.

    As the waters rose higher, you can imagine how the people must have screamed, wailed, and begged to be let in the Ark.For days Noah's family heard all the pleas from the friends they left behind. They heard a scary new sound as rain pounded the ground for the first time in history. They felt the boat shake as it began to ride the waves.
No doubt they were stunned into silence as they witness YHWH 's awesome judgment.

   On Yom Kippur we can begin to get the frightening fate awaiting those not written in the Book of Life.
This should drive us to be all the more grateful for our salvation (the Ark) through the Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) and to renew our committment to living a life pleasing to Him.

    As in the days of Noah, will it be simply another day of chasing after success in this lost world, or will you be among those whose hearts are prepared and ready to go?
I didn't like reading the book of Revelation when I first got bor again. But now, I feel sorry for people doesn't know God.

   I am grateful for the torahclass.com for the great teaching of the word of God.
of Yom Kippur, your discomfort gives you a hint of what the final Yom Kippur will be like. 
I certain theological concepts and still remain aloof from them. For instance, we can talk about being sinners, but deep down inside we all think we're really not so bad. It's all those other people who have sin problems - not us.
also know as the Day of Judgment.

Suffering

Darkness and God's presence

      The bible speaks to us, when we walk in such suffering, it doesn't mean God is not in our lives. I spent a day with a friend, and she is going through a very tough times. I can't imagine for a parent to watch their kid lying in the hospital, the doctor saying, I am sorry there is nothing we can do. The parent takes their child home, and waiting for that miracle.
     A parent want take the pain away from their child to suffer instead of their child. And you wonder, where is God? Does He even see me? That is where my friend is right now. I had a book I carry most of the time with me, by Mme. Jeanne Guyon. I opened the page to share, it said,"The measure of His hiding from you seems to match the measure of His revelation.  These ultimate trials(the experience of the night of the spirit) become even more agonizing than others because, in overwhelmed with a deep conviction of his own wretchedness. (it seems as if it is from devils.)"
     You can't come to an idea of this terrible tribulation except by having passed through the actual experience.
And I see my friend the love she have for God increases as she continue to go through this evil(dark) times.

    Trust God! He is always looking out for you from loosing your mind. Giving you peace and strength one day at a time. God can't stop men kind from doing evil, and he can't stop putting all this chemicals to our food and vaccinations. When you lost hope of ever beholding another darkness, Remember to Him even darkness is light. He sees you even in darkness standing in faith, you still didn't loose your hope and Peace.
So, surrender all to God. He has you in His hand.

Happy Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year begins the sundown Sep,28.
Rosh Hashanah is the first of 10 days set aside for reflection in the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur.
During these days, we are called to seek the forgiveness of people we have wronged during the past year.
Various symbolic foods - such as dates, apples, honey, pomegranates, pumpkin, leeks, beets - are traditionally eaten on the holiday.

I don't like to get to a debate, many Christians look at it as a Jewish holiday only, but if we read the whole bible by the help of the holy spirit. It is a thread to a new testament.

I will making simple aple sauce, beet salad and may be a honey cake. The honey cake which I end up eating most of it, because my kids aren't crazy.
