Good day sister saints!
We are blessed with a rainy day, one of those kinds that's mild and soft little drops that just keep coming down. I love the cycle of God's creation. I used to wonder, as a child, if all the rivers flow south, how come the water up north doesn't run dry? God has the answer....
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
I love His word! There's an answer for everything and I'm so thankful to be able to partake of it! I posted yesterday how I used to be an avid book reader and during the awful time of my life before Christ, used to say that I wish there was a book that told us how to live. What great rejoicing there was in my heart the second I was told the bible was from God to us! (I know, I've already shared that before and I repeat myself but I'll keep sharing it and repeating myself because it brings Him glory!)
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
I love when I have time to do these posts cuz when it's busy I just do quick Facebook posts (which are good too) but I can share a bit more here. So today, since it was rainy out, brother James and I decided to walk around in a big warehouse store and see about giving out the gospel and get some walking in. They had workers trying to get people to try their food samples so we stopped and talked to the them and gave out the GOSPEL. Before that, brother James witnessed to some people, you can see that on his FB post HERE.
I found this purse at a thrift store and it has 2 small pockets in just the perfect place for me to put gospel cards. One for the anabaptists and one for everyone else. I can easily reach in and a split second later have one in my hand because I want to make sure I never miss an opportunity to give one out.

While we were in the store, I saw bulk bags of rice and it made me think of all the food storage we used to have when we were on the homestead. I used to can rice (yep they tell you that you can't but I did and so did the people who taught me lol). I have a post of it on the old sisters blog but I brought it over to our website, you can see that HERE if you're interested. I love when sisters share about their cooking, canning, gardening etc and in fact, a sister has an abundance of cauliflower to use up and I suggested trying to pickle some of it. (I loved pickling cauliflower...well any pickled veggie really!) She said she might try it, so let's see:-)
Speaking of pickled things, I was rejoicing to find these in the store for a great deal so I bought one. I know a sister who used to grow okra but I don't know if she pickled them or not and I never have. I did used to pickle the last bits of produce in the garden, the odds and ends that weren't enough to do a full load of one thing and it turned out being a colorful jar of pickled veggies. If you're interested in a money saving tip on this topic....you can reuse pickling juice for another batch, I did anyway. Take the left over pickling juice (brine) and bring it to a boil for a minute or two with the vegetable you're pickling. Put it in the jar, cool and then keep in the refrigerator. I wouldn't recommend shelf canning pickled goods with left over brine though and I only reused it once.
In the subject line it says 'sundae' and technically, that picture isn't a sundae. I think the qualifications of one is that it has to have some sort of syrup on it or something but anyway lol, I'm just sharing that because brother James and I split one for $1...what a treat. (It's frozen yogurt.) I used to enjoy making homemade goat milk ice cream and frozen yogurt from scratch from the goats we used to milk. I'm thankful for all the past experiences we had on the homestead because we can be a help to others who might have that sort of life.
I'm thankful to be able to encourage sisters who are striving to be godly holy women, doing their good works unto the Lord, taking care of their homes and children and people and whoever is in their life, with thankfulness, joy and peace.
We were looking at an event coming up so brother James made some phone calls to get more information. At the end of a phone call with a man, brother James warned him about the event and the false teachers in it and the man said he's been seeing through things that brother James brought up. No matter whether we end up at that event or not, that man, who seems to be seeking, was given much truth. It made me think about the audio I just did about rejoicing for the one (you can listen to it HERE if you missed it).
Before I let you go I had to share that awesome flower picture from a sister. She said it's from a passion fruit that grew from discarded seeds. Funny how that works, we can plant seeds and some might not grow but you toss out some scraps and plants can grow! What an amazing Creator we get to serve!
I hope your day goes well in the Lord and thank you sisters who care to share the love that God has given us.
Love to you all,
