"Time" song by The Voetberg Family Band

Time is ticking..... A lovely song that reminds me of the urgency to share the gospel with this generation, and not waste time.

"Time" 
Song Lyrics: (written by The Voetberg Family Band) 
Time is always running round the clock
never stops to check, never looking back
Days and hours turn to history
won't it wait for me give me time to see
You sit around and sift through memories
watch them follow you, they try to swallow you
Now you're running and you're out of breath
you better stay right there, you better double check
Chorus:
If you could have all the time in the world
Is it enough to change all the changes-
put smiles on their faces
Could countless hours draw a line in the sand that you'd never have crossed
but the tides of these waters won't last.
Enlightened thoughts swing you high on a cloud
think you've got it down, proficient as a clown
If every seconds someone's history
you'd better hope you see beyond the mystery

Making Sausage Biscuits


I wanted to make my own sausage biscuits as a cheaper alternative to store bought ones.
They are not the healthiest meal, but you can always use turkey sausage instead of pork and use half whole wheat flour and half white flour if you want.





   Homemade Biscuits 

  • Prep Time30 MIN
  • Total Time45 MIN
  • Servings10



  • Ingredients:

    2
    cups  all-purpose flour
    1
    tablespoon sugar, if desired
    3
    teaspoons baking powder
    1
    teaspoon salt
    1/2
    cup shortening (butter)
    3/4
    cup milk


    Directions: 

    • 1 Heat the oven to 450°F. In a medium bowl, stir the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until mixed. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in the milk until mixture forms a soft dough and leaves the side of the bowl (dough will be soft and sticky). 
    • 2 Lightly sprinkle flour over a cutting board or countertop. Place dough on floured surface; gently roll in the flour to coat. To knead dough, fold dough toward you. With the heels of your hands, lightly push dough away from you with a short rocking motion. Move dough a quarter turn and repeat 10 times. Dough will feel springy and smooth.
    • 3 On the floured surface, flatten dough evenly, using hands or a rolling pin, until dough is 1/2 inch thick.
    • 4 Before cutting each biscuit, dip a 2 1/2-inch round cutter into flour to lightly coat it so it will cut cleanly through the dough without sticking. To cut, push the cutter straight down through the dough without twisting or turning. Cut the biscuits as close together as possible. On an ungreased cookie sheet, place biscuits about 1 inch apart for biscuits with crusty sides, or place with sides touching for biscuits with soft sides.
    • 5 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.

    Praying for Muslims during Ramadan 2015

    For those of you praying for Muslims during Ramadan, Laylat al-Qadr (observed a week from now) is an important night in their religion. They believe that the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to Muhammed on this night. They have special prayers and stay at the mosque all night, to try and obtain forgiveness and blessing. 

    How wonderful that we know the Lord who has forgiven us and given us blessings abundantly! He also gives us assurance of knowing we are saved before we die. 

    Please pray that many Muslims find the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior on this night. Continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Muslim countries too.

    "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 

    For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 

    For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time."
    1 Timothy 2:1-6
