TOP OF THE MANTLE

You've heard the old saying, 'it's raining cats and dogs', I am sure. Where it came from, I have no idea. It just appears to refer to 'heavy rain'. And, heavy rain is what we've had in Alabama today! Highway 280, across Birmingham, was drenched with rain this morning, as we made our way to Soccer Blast for a soccer tournament in which our grandson was playing.

I love rain, as long as that's all there is, and I'm home. The roads are not where I like to be, when it's so white outside that you can't see in front of your car! So many drivers just go on about their business, speeding as usual, and not realizing that those conditions are ripe for an accident.

Buddy Holly had a song out that was called 'It's Raining In My Heart', which had a line that said "Oh, misery, misery, what's going to become of me?" The rain produced to day clears the air, and washes off the dust. But, when your heart is 'raining misery', then life isn't good. The enemy is on your trail, and you need a touch from God. If you are experiencing this kind of rain, reach out and let Him bring the peace that will put joy back in your heart.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The motto of David Livingston was in these words, "I determined never to stop until I had come to the end and achieved my purpose." By unfaltering persistence and faith in God he conquered.

WEEKLY RECIPES
From Around The Web

SOY and HONEY-GLAZED WINTER SQUASH
Serves: 6

2 1/2 to 3 pounds small winter squash (carnival, golden acorn, delicata, or other)
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce, or to taste
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil

The squashes may be baked in the oven or microwave. If you are going to use the oven, preheat it to 375 degrees.

Cut the squashes in half lengthwise. Place the halves cut side up in a baking dish with about 1/2 inch of water, and cover each half tightly with foil. Bake until easily pierced with a knife but still firm, about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the type and size of squash used. Or microwave, using about 4 to 7 minutes each as a rule of thumb per small squash or 10 minutes for a butternut. Test occasionally to make sure they don't overcook.

When the squashes are cool enough to handle, scoop out and discard the seeds. Peel the squashes and cut into 1-inch chunks.

Combine the remaining ingredients in an extra-wide skillet or stir-fry pan and heat gently, stirring together. Add the squash and turn up the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring, until the liquid reduces and the squash is nicely glazed, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve at once.

*Shop Carefully*

There are two things that you should not do if you see me in a supermarket. The first thing is get behind me in a checkout line. You can be most certain that the lady just before me is going to try to pay by check - filling it out with a pen that will only work if shaken after every couple of letters. It will probably dry up for good right there and send the lady fumbling back into her overly cluttered purse for another chronically dried up pen.

The second thing you should never do is take the shopping cart I have just returned to the store's cart corral. If you do you can expect to end up with either a cart whose wheels are so mis-aligned that off duty police officers will stop and ask how many drinks you have had as you struggle to shop in a straight line or you will end up with a cart whose wheels are perfectly aligned and equally ceased, thus giving you an aerobic workout that would leave even the best athlete breathless. In other words - don't follow me at a supermarket.

The world is full of people you shouldn't follow. Whether it is the gossip in the pew next to you, the office supply thief at work, or that special someone who wants to take your relationship to an inappropriate level, we all need to be on guard against getting behind people who are only going to lead us away from the commitment we made when first believed in Jesus. In a world where we must teach children not to take candy from strangers, many of us need to become more discerning in whom we take off after in the pursuit of personal happiness or even everyday life direction.

Choosing to follow the wrong person can result in our quickly being far off the path God has for our respective lives. It is important that we choose carefully and wisely from amongst the multitude of voices that siren us to follow them. We must closely compare their invitation to the invitation we received and accepted from God through Christ. Some may be tempted to take the seemingly safe and easy way out by becoming loners and following no one. But that is no option because God has leaders he wants to bring into our lives for our blessing.

No, the way to move forward in harmony with God's will and plan is the best way to shop in the same supermarket as me - be careful whom you follow.

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

Maranatha Christian Journal

( ABP) -- Taxpayer funding of a program once touted by President Bush as an example of the kind of partnerships he hopes will flourish under his "faith-based" initiative has been ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge.

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

Is passionately the word you long for? Passionately! oh, the harm that is done by that word! there is something in the thought of it that makes me shudder. Passionately means transport, frenzy, excess in everything.

The life that the word passionately describes must be a life full of risks and dangers; and if, by little short of a miracle, nothing outwardly wrong appears, the inner life must resemble palace ravaged by fire, where the stranger sees nothing but cracked walls, blackened furniture, and drapery hanging in shreds.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880

HIS ENCOURAGING WORD...

1 Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
