I have found my new perfect tea: instant ginger tea! It combines two of my most favorites ingredients ginger and sugar!
And before you start pointing the finger because of the sugar let me ask you if you have ever eaten raw ginger without sugar.No? I didn’t think so. But I have eaten raw ginger with sugar. It’s a home remedy for colds and sore throats that my Mom used to give me when I was a child. It is very inexpensive and it works!
Being able to find the tea at the Asian supermarket was like finding a treasure. Yes, I don’t know 80% of the food they sell there but they have my hormone control and sugar tea so I go there.
Drinking tea makes me feel fancy. And puts me in the mood for writing or reading. I wonder if I have some English blood in me. I have to write another post to explain why it might be a possibility.
Sadly my writing tablet is dead. 😦 . So I have to continue reading my book, the fear of the LORD by John Bevere.
This is such a good and simple illustration of how much Jesus loves us and the bitter cup He had to drink in order for us to see Him clearly. I loved watching this, will definitely keep going back to it time and time again.
I loved watching this video. First because it is animated. Second because it is a well written and narrated story. It explains why Jesus came and what it means for us. Simple, powerful, effective.
The Light shines in the darkness. And the darkness can never extinguish it. NLT John 1:5
One of my favorite verse is John 1:1, I think I could say it is my life verse. It just assures me that everything that is living came from the Word, so they ultimately obey the Word of God.
This verse also gives me hope because the darkness or evil will never conquer Christ or the Light of the world. So no matter what it looks like or sounds like God is in control. And that’s what I believe.
Till later, J.
Summer has arrived! Yayyy! It is hot even at night! But I am holding off on the AC!
My favorite season is fall. I like the color changes. Especially with the leaves. Now I have one more reason to like fall: inspiration for stories. I need to start people observing. You can learn so much from people just by observing them. They can be a heroes or villains in your head. And be part of some awesome stories.
Another reason to like summers are the writing contests that are popping out of everywhere. Which is drawing me back to my keyboard. Time to write another story. Maybe even attend a writer’s conference. God willing. But we will see.
So I will go start these two new stories. One of them is dark, intense, at times. I will hold myself accountable and publish something here every …. I don’t know. I have tocheck on copyrights andstuff first. That should get me going somewhere.
I was at the light this morning waiting for the green light so I could make a left turn. Out of nowhere came this white car who was turning into the lane next to me, going the opposite direction. For a brief moment, our eyes met. And I thought “Wow. Somebody is not happy this morning. Probably on her way to work.” “Just like you.”
I was so shocked. I just started laughing. And reminded myself I don’t have any reason to be upset. I have the Holy Spirit. I am so fortunate. I kept my smile from then on.
It surprises me the little ways in which the LORD invades your personal space. He reminds me then that He sees everything. He knows everything. And that comforts me.
Someone said in one video: :”To have a real relationship you have to be honest.”
I was tested on that today when i had to go “there” with a sister. She encouraged me to be honest, with her, with myself, with the Lord. But it was scary too. I am not sure if i have been completely honest with her, but i told her what was on my heart the way i understood it. and it was regarding separation.
Being honest with others doesn’t always bring positive results. Sometimes the other person doesn’t receive your honesty, or your honesty brings an end to a relationship. i read something today in the Bible that talks about fearing God more than men. And through experiences, I have learned that it’s better to be on God’s right side than on man’s right side. Why? because God is the One in control. Man is not. God has always the final word. And He turns everything around for your good, for His glory, no matter what it looks like in the moment.
I encourage you to be honest, no matter the cost. At the same time, pray for wisdom to be honest and loving, just like Jesus. I was reading through Luke. A Pharisee had invited Jesus to eat at his home. Jesus started rebuking the Pharisees, and then the religious leaders. I am like “WOW! The Lord Jesus didn’t have any fear of men! Help me LORD!” And I am confident He heard my prayer.
Until later, in His grace,
