In fact as many times as I have been down in life with financial problems,
the sin of growing old in a vain culture
and various dealings with the fickle finger of fate.
There is a core of strength and protection all around me. It is called faith. Faith from the living Word that never fails.

There is help. We were sent a comforter, the Holy Spirit, to guide and comfort the children of God after Jesus was crucified.
Of sin, because they believe not on me;
Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Christmas Bounty! (the quicker picker upper)
Most became familiar with this scripture read in the Charlie Brown Christmas special during the children’s play. Hopefully some of you know a little more about our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ than what is portrayed in a child’s cartoon.
Merry Christmas and God Bless us everyone!

No better time to relax than when you get snowed in. You can relax, take a nap or watch TV, read a book or just play on the computer. You could also freak out and pace the floors knowing that you are trapped like a rat.
Great time to overeat or you could just work out. Many years ago I would be working out. Today I baked an almond tart for the first time. I found some recipe online for a Lemon-Almond tart. Did not sound like a great combo to me, though I love both by themselves. Turned it into an Almond Tart recipe with only had 4 ingredients. Pleasant flavor and quite dense but should be gluten-free with no flour.
4 eggs 1 C almond meal
1/3 C sugar 1/3 C almond flavored creamer
Mix eggs and sugar then add the almond meal/ground almonds then blend in the flavored creamer Butter and flour tart or tiara pan Bake at 350° for 15 minutes Dust with powdered sugar as desired.
Relaxing with more comfort food.

For someone who has always lived in the northern area of the country, it’s not this time of year without snow & icy roads so be careful if you share this part of the world.
For most of us, it’s the start of the holiday or Christmas season. I used to say happy holidays before it almost became illegal to say Merry Christmas. I found this cartoon a few years ago, so appropriate!
