An Apple a Day: Isaiah 43:16, 18-19


Isaiah 43:16, 18-19

I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, 
making a dry path through the sea.";But forget all that—
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.For 
I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun!
Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

Recipe: Olive Cheese Balls


Olive Cheese Balls

Ingredients:
 2 cups shredded sharp cheese (Try different cheeses such as blends of 4 cheeses, pepper jack, herbed etc…whatever combo you like

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

½ cup (1 stick butter) melted

48 small pimento-stuffed olives, drained and potted dry.
Add a dash of worcestershire if desired

Preparation:
  •             Stir together cheese and flour in a large bowl.  Stir in melted butter.  (If dough seems dry, work it with hands!)

  •      Mold 1 teaspoon dough around each olive; shape into balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Cover at least 1 hour, but no longer than 24 hours.

3.    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown.

Tip: You can make these ahead by placing unbaked balls on cookie sheet and place in freezer.  Freeze for at least 2 hours, then place them in plastic freezer bags (up to 3 months).

An Apple a Day: Luke 2:16-20


Luke 2:16-20

They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph.
 And there was the baby, lying in the manger.
After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone
 what had happened and what the angel had said to them 
about this child.All who heard the shepherds' story were 
astonished,but Mary kept all these things in her heart
 and thought about them often.The 
shepherds went back to their flocks, 
glorifying and praising God for all they had heard 
and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.

Christmas Message

Happy Christmas Eve to

Hebrews 1:1-2


Hebrews 1:1-2

[Jesus Christ Is God's Son] Long ago God spoke many times
 and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets.
And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through 
his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, 
and through the Son he 
created the universe.

An Apple a Day: Psalm 100:4-5

Today let Thankfulness rule in your heart.  As you thank
God for the blessings in your life, a wonderful thing
happens. It will be like the scales fall off your eyes,
enabling you to see more of HIS glorious riches. A
life of praise and thankfulness becomes a life filled
with miracles!  Don't miss out on the blessings God
has for those with hearts full of praise and thankfulness!

Psalm 100:4-5 (NIV)
4. Enter his gates with Thanksgiving and his courts with
praise; give thanks to HIM and praise his name.
5. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Christmas Lights

I saw this in the DEC 2011 issue of Boiling Springs Today booklet.
I like it and think it is pretty dog gone accurate!  What do you think!

I love CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!
They remind me of politicians.
They all hang together, half of the suckers don't work,
and the ones that do aren't that bright.
