He Is Able

“I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him for that day.”

 If there ever was a verse that encourages me to pray every morning, 2 Timothy 1:12 does just that! 

Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

 Just as sunrise brings a new day, prayer in the morning promises a fresh start!

 What precious eternal truths!  The Lord promises to guard what I have entrusted to Him ~~ specific issues that need supernatural guidance.  His endless love and compassion, new every morning, enables Him to love me in spite of my human frailties. 

 Are you “entrusting” the Lord with your needs every morning?  “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:7

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

May 19, 2010 at 12:18 pm (Pies, Recipes)

I found this recipe on line in May of 2005.  It is fabulous!  I have made it with less strawberries, more rhubarb, or visa-versa.  Just make sure you have Seven (7) cups of fruit.  I use the boxed Pillsbury Pie Crust mix ~~ and have never had a problem with crust.

 Strawberry Rhubarb Cream Pie

  •  1 ½ cups white sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 3 cups halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 recipe pastry for 9-inch double crust pie
  • 1 egg white


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together sugar, flour, and nutmeg.  Stir in eggs.  Fold in rhubarb, making sure to coat well, then do the same with the strawberries.  Pour mixture into pie crust.  Place second crust on top, being sure to cut slits into it to vent steam.  Brush egg white on top crust.  (I sprinkle some finishing sugar on top, just for sparkle. )
  3. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until rhubarb is tender, and crust is golden.

Gone Too Long…

May 8, 2010 at 12:46 pm (Decorative Painting, Jewelry)

I realized this morning that I have not blogged for nearly a month!  Where has the time gone?? 

I have been working at healing, resuming normal activities; exercise, cleaning, gardening, a little at a time.  I also have been working hard on some art projects and jewelry designs.  The Lord has been speaking to me and I am resting in His love and mercy.  I’ve got some new thoughts on “the garment of praise.”  I will talk about them another day 🙂

Here are some of the “fruits of my labor!”  As you can see, I LOVE dangling earrings!
