Are You Ready?

As I am re-reading the "Left Behind: The Kids" series again. It makes me wonder what the rapture will be like. I believe in the rapture. I believe that these things that Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye are talking about will happen. I am still studying on what will happen when Jesus comes back for us. It says in the bible that when Jesus comes back for us, it will be a lightening going from one end of the world to the other. He will quickly snatch us.

Matthew 24:27 (King James Version)

27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mom showed Justin and I this video last year or the year before that. It shows you all the nataural disasters leading up to a church service. A pastor is preaching about when Jesus comes back. When he gets half way into his sermon, the camera turns back to the congregation. Everyone disappears, only a few are left behind.

If you had not read or watched the "Left Behind" series. I want to encourage you to watch and read it. Also ask yourself
"Am I Ready?"

Are You Ready?


I recently entered Hannah's apron giveaway. One morning last week while I was doing my chores, my brother, JJ, went to check the mail. He came back in saying my name. I asked "Did my apron came?". I saw a package in his hand. I took it out of his hand. I ran to Mom saying that my apron had come. We sat on her bed and opened the package. We pulled out this gorgeous apron. It is soooo pretty! So I put it on, and we went into the kitchen to take pictures of myself in my apron.

New Recipe, Tried, And Success

Last week I was craving some chocolate chip cookies and Mom and Dad needed to take a snack to their Bible study.

The only recipes I could find included either oats or nuts.

The last place I checked was Rachel's blog. I knew that she loves to cook/bake. And guess what? I found a great chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have to say that I was kind of nervous trying a new recipe. But I did it. The other reasons why I was nervous was because I had never worked with brown sugar, and because I had to put the cookies on an ungreased pan. I said "Are the cookies going to stick?". After they baked, I pulled them out of the oven and checked them to see if they were done. Guess what? The cookies did not stick. I kind of mutilated a cookie by checking it. So when Daddy got home he tried half of the mutilated one. He said they were good. So I tried the other half myself. And I have to say that I was really impressed with my cookies. Mom was even impressed. She took two batches to her Bible study. When she came home, I asked her what the other people thought. She said they were impressed, too.

To get the chocolate chip cookie recipe go HERE.

By His Wounds

I thought this would be a good song to post for Easter. Because this song basically talks about the true meaning of Easter, and Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. I have heard this song on the radio, and we sung it in church once. But it popped in my head earlier Friday morning after we watched "The Passion of Christ".

By His Wounds Lyrics
(Feat. Mac Powell, Mark Hall, Steven Curtis Chapman and Brian Littrell)

Isaiah 53:5

He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed

He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed

We are healed by Your sacrifice
And the life that You gave
We are healed for You paid the price
By Your grace we are saved
We are saved

He was pierced for our transgressions
And crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed

We are healed by Your sacrifice
And the life that You gave
We are healed for You paid the price
By Your grace we are saved
We are saved

He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed
And by His wounds, by His wounds

What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Here is the video I found on Tangle A.K.A Godtube, it was the best one I could find:

"But he was pierced by our transgressions, he was crushed by our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:5

The Easiest Garlic Bread You'll Ever Make

Sorry about the long title, but I could not figure out a good title for this blog post. Since Jocelyn posted a post about her spaghetti recipe, I decided to post a blog post of our easiest homemade garlic bread.

As many slices of bread you want or need (homemade will do also)
Garlic Powder
Italian Seasoning
Butter (we use squeezed or spray, but homemade will do also)

What to do:
Lay the slices of bread on a cookie sheet(s).
Spread the butter on each slice of bread.
Sprinkle the garlic powder on each slice of bread.
Sprinkle the Italian seasoning on each slice of bread.
Pop the cookie sheet(s) in the oven.
Bake at 350 degrees.
We don't time our bread. So we take it out when we think it is done or when it is golden.

Hope you enjoy our recipe!
