TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

Tonight, you lose an hour, if you are on Daylight Saving Time. Haven't you ever wondered how you lose an hour, and where does that hour go? We go to sleep at the same time; we wake up at the same time, yet, we have one hour less sleeping time.

'Time' isn't lost, actually. It's always there. We are just changing our clocks so that we can make use of more daylight. It puts a damper on the morning people for a time, putting them more in the dark later into the morning. But, the afternoon and evening people will enjoy more time at home, in the daylight hours.

God doesn't observe daylight saving hours. He's on call day and night. If you need to reach Him, you need not set your clocks ahead or back; you need not set the alarm. You need only call upon His name, and He is ready to answer.

Daylight Savings Time - When Do We Change Our Clocks?

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Psalms 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

The Prayer of Jabez

More than likely, you've heard of Bruce Wilkerson's new book, The Prayer of Jabez. It's becoming the rage among the Christians, with many churches teaching about the prayer of Jabez, and how to incorporate it into your daily life. Check out The Prayer of Jabez here, click on some of the urls, or go buy the book! I think you will enjoy it. I've already purchased three books this week; one is for myself, and the others for gifts! Go enjoy!

The Pain That Mary Felt

It's almost Easter or Resurrection Sunday, as some love to call it. During that season many years ago, a Mother's heart was broken, for she saw her son hanging on that cross - crucified for our sins. Read the poem, and feel the pain with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, our Saviour.

EXTRA for THE NEW YEAR

Judy's Cuban Black Bean Chili

Ingredients

2 pounds ground chuck or ground round
1 large onion, diced
1 large green pepper, diced
3 cloves crushed garlic.
3 finely grated carrots
1 pound dry beans precooked in chicken or beef broth / or 4 can black beans
1 large can (approximately 28 to 32 ounces) crushed tomatoes
2 cans (approximately 40 ounces) peeled, diced tomatoes
Juice of 3 limes, fresh (or 6 Tablespoons frozen)
Dash Tabasco pepper sauce or Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 Tablespoon garlic powder (optional but suggested)

In large iron pot (or dutch oven), saute meat and drain. Add onion and green pepper; lightly brown. Add garlic and carrots. Saute the above for an additional 5 to 8 minutes to blend. Add black beans. Add tomatoes, lime juice, Tabasco, cumin, and garlic powder. Simmer for at least 35 minutes, adding a little of the cook's sipping beer to achieve desired thickness of chili. (Well, use good hygienic judgement, of course!) Serve with a slice of lime, a sprig of mint, and a dollop of sour cream or yogurt (plain) floated on top. French bread is an extra treat!

PRINT OUT AND KEEP IT WITH YOUR BIBLE

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

One Sunday morning, Pastor Bruce noticed little Alex was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. The plaque was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it.

The seven year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly, "Good morning Alex."

"Good morning pastor," replied the young man, still focused on the plaque.
"Pastor Bruce, what is this?" Alex asked.

"Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service."

Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alex's voice was barely audible when he asked, "Which service, the 8:30 or the 11:00?"

SNIPPET FROM THE MANTLE
A word or two from....

What Does Worship Mean to You?
By Allie Martin and Jody Brown

(AgapePress) - A recent Barna survey shows that the term "worship" means many different things to Christians -- and that more than 90% of them believe worship is more important than evangelism, Bible study, and helping the poor.

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

I. Meek Towards God - (Continued)

If anything occurs to hinder my work, anything goes contrary to my plans and projects, He has ordained it so on purpose, because He knows that too much success would make me proud,too much ease would make me sensual; and he would teach me that the road to heaven is not success, but labor and devotion.

With such thoughts as these all rebellion is hushed! With what peace, what joy, our work may be begun, continued, interrupted, and resumed!

With what energy we reject those enemies that assail us at every hour, --idleness, haste, preoccupation, success, want of perseverance under difficulties!

Does the past sometimes rise up to trouble me with the thought of the many years spent without God?

(Continued Next Week)

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
