Sunday : Word of Faith * Be Still ..

 Be Still .....

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

It means listen, do not make noise, be calm, and pay attention. There is a verse in the Bible that says “Be still and know that I am God.” That means stop paying attention to what is going on in the world, and listen to what the Bible is telling you. A lesson we can all learn in these busy times. Lisa

Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies

January is Oatmeal month : 

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies 


  • 1/3 C Coca
  • 1/2 C whole milk
  • 1/2 C crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 C quick Oats
  • 2 C sugar
  • 1 stick oleo
  • 1 tsp vanilla
In a pot combine : coca,sugar,milk and oleo. Bring to Boil  for 1 1.2 minutes. Remove from Heat - Add peanut butter,vanilla and Oats. Drop by spoonful onto wax paper and let set up. 

What is Oleo ?  In my household that's what Grandma always called  the Margarine  . And you can still find it used in older cookbooks and recipes : 

The original name for margarine was oleomargarine. It used to be called just oleo. Then at some point, it changed to just being called margarine. The popularity ofoleo/margarine grew during war time because of the shortage of butter.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  Isaiah 41:10 

Meaning : 

Without a doubt, this is a verse that was given to bring peace to those who love the Lord. 
FEAR THOU NOT – This verse is so simple in its meaning, and it offers great comfort to those going through difficult times 
FOR I AM WITH THEE – This is the reason why we should not be afraid. God was their protector (and He is certainly ours
