Tackle it Tuesday

Monday after baking a large ham and a larger turkey (due to child and a power switch)
Then sliced both, cooked down the carcass and the ham bone.
Turkey and stars broth With seasoning of dried vegatable powders, onion, celery salt, the bay that was in the boil down.
Beans and ham. BBQ seasons, molasses, crushed tomato, onion, sage and corn starch to thicken.
All is cooling on the stove as of just now turning them off.
Dishes anyone?
I know those will be happy dogs with that ham bone.
A 1/2 gallon of turkey gravy also.
Gotta have that for the mashed potato that will be a main part of my sustenance this week for no solid food for a week.

Oh I am dead on my feet!
Time tonight to sit and get relaxed and tired. 
Tuesday tackle
Oral surgery 10 a.m.
Courage
Bravery
Laying down to offer myself up as a vessel to be available for those who are doing the procedure. Rather than focusing on my self.
Calling my will to intercede for them as under nitrous I will be listening to their hearts expressed in the small talk that goes on. 
Listening and talking with Abba Papa staying in The Palm of His hand.
Letting go of the funds that were set aside in hope to have a long long due holiday this summer.
Knowing God made those funds available so this can be paid in full. 
No debt as our heart so longs to live. 
Doves braces come off in two weeks and we will be able to pay off the debt at that time.
Blessed
Focus focus focus that is my biggest task tomorrow. 
Calling my nerve into submission toward trusting that God has only His best in mind for me.
I am blessed.
focus...
To lend my voice only to sounds of freedom, no longer giving my strength to those things that I wish to be free from. 
To live my life with love and bravery and I shall live a life uncommon.

I love reading your words. Your heart expressed in such a poetic way....its inspiring and a tremendous witness. It makes me smile and think when others are able to turn a situation on its side and see it from a perspective different from the world. It helps challenge me to do the same.

Bless you today! He will be with you holding your hand! :)

Lovely post Donnetta. I love the cooking...so glad you were able to cook ahead for your family. Always a few steps ahead, that is what inspires me about you.

Praying for a successful surgery with no complications, as I recently had some work done with disasterous results (bad infection). Feeling better now and headed back on Thursday to get the teeth worked on AGAIN. So you will be in my thoughts and prayers dear lady.

Hope your recovery is quick! :)

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
