Monkey Bread recipe

   I wanted  to say, uncle Jim Hughes got me addicted to Monkey bread. It isn't something you want eat daily.

3(10 ounce) Pillsbury biscuits
1 cup sugar
2 table spoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter or add more as you go
1 box Butterscotch pudding mix


Mix Sugar, cinnamon and butterscotch in a bowl.

Cut each biscuit in to 4.
Melt butter and dip the biscuits in to butter, then roll them in to the sugar mix.
Place pieces in a buttered tube or Bandit pan.

Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes. Allow to cool 15 minutes before removing from pan. Turn upside down to serve.

If you don't feel like rolling them, you can always melt the butter and sugar and pour on top. I like to roll it, because you can get them soaked well in cinnamon, butter and sugar.

You are welcome to add nuts on the bottom of the pan or sprinkle on top.

My walk with God

     I was walking on the beach and saw my own foot step. I took a picture. Right then, I questioned myself. What foot print am I leaving behind? What am I doing to enhance the kingdom of God? Am I making a difference in people's life or is it all about me?

   Self is a very strong battle we have to fight against. No matter what we do good, we want to please our selves. Until we deny our self and put God first, we can't please our Lord. It is either God or not at all. We can't serve God and ourselves. Matthew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.

    One day, I will meet The king of kings, Heavenly father. I will have to stand before Him and answer those questions. I wouldn't want to be ashamed to face Him.

    Sometimes Satan loves to put us down and we ourselves are hard on us as well. I know we can't be blameless, no one is.  We can't change ourselves on our own with out the help f God. If we continue to hold on to our Saviour Jesus Christ and follow Him, He will direct our steps.

     Psalms 119:133. "Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me."

Amazing love!!!

When I think I knew God's love, I find out I don't know Him at all.

The more I believe God is Faithful and Merciful, He reveals Himself more than I can think. 

Job 36:26:""Behold, God is exalted, and we do not know Him; The number of His years is unsearchable."

I am in awe of Him! What a father He is!

 As you get closer to Him, lean to Him to get your food like the branches to the root. He soaks you with His amazing Love!

We get so destructed by the care of this world and we miss His love daily.

How amazing He is! Absolutely wonderful!!!

Love is beautiful!

     I met Jim and Ginger fifteen years ago. They became a family to me and my children. Ginger isn't in a good shape. She has been ill for a few years. We try to visit once a year or more if we can. The best of all our vacation is spending time with families like them.
     The kids always have a great time! When we see eachother, it is like we never lost any time. We cook, eat, chat and laugh. We are praying for Ginger that she will get better.
      Here is Buddy. Jim and Ginger found him by their door. He is new to the family. The boys were lying down, and he walks into the room, climbs to the bed and lies down on top of Jason leg. I think he is saying, this is my room.
Sport is been a good dog and looking at Buddy embarrassed.

Pat is the example of the love of God

Here is Aunt Pat. I love her very much! I feel comfortable with Pat. What a nice visit. I wish we had more days. We visited the all-a-flatter butterfly garden here in Greensboro, NC.

We finished our picnic and wating for our turn to see and feed the butterflies.

We fed the butterflies. That was so much fun!!!

        We are here in SC visiting family. We woke up early morning to go fishing. Beautiful morning. We stayed from 8am to 11am. 
        We had so much fun! the kids caught some small fishes. For me, it is all about spending time with family. Being away from TV and technology and spending time together.

This place takes your breath away! It is absolutely beautiful! Jim is good with the kids, I enjoy him when he is around. He loves to help and the kids don't even bother with me at all.
