American flag pie!
For the “stripes” part of the pie I mixed a can of cherry pie filling and about a cup of fresh sliced strawberries and pitted cherries. For the “stars” portion of the pie, I mixed a can of blueberry pie filling and about a 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries. To make sure that the blueberries didn’t mix with the cherries, I sectioned off the pie crust with some tinfoil. That allowed me to get clean lines to show the different parts of the American flag. I removed the tinfoil and then added some stars and stripes with the leftover pie crust. Then baked it at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes then turned the oven down to 375 degrees and continued baking it for 45 minutes or until the crust was golden brown.

It’s easy! All you have to do is buy a bag of lemons. Squeeze them (try using a juicer if not that then a whisk) and then add sugar and water to the lemon juice!
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Happy Fourth of July!
239 years ago, 56 people total; the youngest was 26 and the oldest was 70 signed the Declaration of Independence establishing our freedom from King George the third and England.
George Washington our nations first president plainly stated “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the bible.”
Our nation is straying from the Lord. The bible to most people these days is just a book of words. God to them is just a fairytale creature.
We need to stand firm in our faith. Don’t let people who don’t believe in God or believe that God does exist but they don’t want no part of him in there lives; change how you believe!
The Lord is coming soon! And we as christians need to get right with God before he returns. We need to fix anything that God would not be pleased with. So when he returns he will say well done my good and faithful servant. Also, the unbelievers need to get saved.
If you are truly saved you should want to go around saying “I am saved! Jesus saved me!” Acts 1:8 Go ye therfore unto all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And lo I am with you always even unto the end of the world. (when Jesus comes again)
Our nation needs to be prayed for. Pray that our nation will be one nation under God again. Pray that they will want and need God again.
God bless America!!!!!
Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Just like my good friend www.pineappletot.wordpress.com said, www.pluggedin.com is a very good christian based review website. It tells you all the things about any movie, song, video game, and T.V show. The good and bad, christian and non-christian.
We want to keep our hearts and minds pure and clean. We don’t want to fill them with bad and non-christian thoughts, do we? God says in the bible to think on things that are honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. Out of the heart are the issues of life….- Proverbs 4:23. If your heart is full of anger and hate then it will affect your life and make you angry and have hatred toward people. If you listen to music that brings you down then you will well, be down and out, not happy at all. But we should be happy. Because if your saved there was an ….. “O happy day, happy day, Jesus washed my sin away. O happy day, happy day, I’ll never be the same. Forever I am changed.” Jesus wants you to be happy. Not happy in your money, or clothes, or things like that. He wants you to be happy in your faith in him.
Anyways, It will tell you things that the newspapers,previews etc. won’t tell you. It helped us just a few weeks ago.
We wanted to go see a movie that looked good. So, just to make we got on plugged in and found out that it had numerous things that were very very bad in it! It was PG too. So, it helps a lot so next time you want to see, get, check out etc. a movie, song, video game, or T.V show check plugged in first. 🙂
“Just to know you and to make you known we lift your name on high, Jesus!”
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,
To my earthly father: Thank you so much for loving me. Thank you for working hard for us to have food, clothing, shelter, etc. Thank you for helping me with my 6th-7th grade math. Thanks for playing and spending time with me. Thank you for teaching me God’s word. I love you, Daddy! ❤
To my heavenly father: Thank you for sending your son to die for me like it says in John 3:16. Thank you for loving me unconditionally even when I sin. Thanks for all your answers to prayer and thanks for being my heavenly father. I love you God. ❤
This Father’s day I noticed that father’s day isn’t just about my earthly dad but about my heavenly father too!
Happy Father’s Day to all the father’s and fathers to be out there! 🙂
Sorry for not posting lately. My family and I just got back from the Blue Ridge Mountains. My, they were beautiful. It rained a lot and it was nice outside. Not like 90 degree weather but not like 60 degrees either. It was in between 70-80 degrees. Nice weather. You don’t sweat and you don’t need a long sleeves shirt either. (If you are wondering why I have the same pics as www.pineappletot.wordpress.com it’s because we are sisters!)
#1 Anyways, we swam in a lake called Mirror Lake. Guess what we found? Sea shells and a clam! Now how would a clam and seashells get on top of a mountain? They couldn’t have put them there because lakes don’t have seashells just seaweed. And a clam! Seriously, they definitely did not put that in a lake! So, how did it get there? Easy. A global flood. The flood probably washed the clams unto the mountain. But, that happened thousands (Not millions!) of years ago, how can there still be clams their? Clams can reproduce. So the clam we found probably was the great great great great great great great great etc. grand clam of the clams that were first washed unto the mountain. I am not making this up. One of the missionaries that comes to our area to teach V.B.S has a mother who went to Death Valley. Guess what she found there? Sea shells.
#2 Okay, now I am switching to a whole different topic. In Matthew and in Luke it talks about if you have faith as small as a mustard seed……. Matthew 17:20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Jesus was not saying that if you said “Hey Blue Ridge Mountain get up and move to New York City!” it would move. He meant, you have struggles in your life. Mountains of fear, anger, hurt, stress etc. He was saying that you can say ex. “stress get out of my life. I have faith that Jesus will help me move this mountain”. And it will move. Only if you have faith, and no doubt! Doubt don’t come from the Lord it comes from the enemy, Satan. James 1:17 Every good and perfect girft cometh from the Father above.
#3 So your probably thinking “Man, I want to see a picture of those mountains her family went too.” Well, the pictures are down below. But, just think for a second. Mountains are beautiful and breathtaking, right? If mountains are so beautiful right now; how do you think they will look when the Lord makes the Earth new again?
This is the cabin we stayed in; Laurel Woods Lodge. I highly recommend it.
This is Chimney Rock. We climbed almost the whole mountain to get to stand and site see off of it. Usually it has a elevator that you can use to get to the top; without climbing! But, it was broken so we had to climb 2,380 feet above sea-level to get to it! Then we decided to climb another 100 feet to see a higher few of the valley.
This is the 404 foot waterfall on the Hickory Nut Falls Nature trail. P.s this is not a very good picture there is a lot of the waterfall cut off.
This is part of Lake Lure with the mountains in the background.
There is a song that goes like this.. “God made the mountains tops and God made the trees. God made the fish that swim in the seas. God made the birds that fly and God made the bees. Buzzzzzz. But! The best of it all, the thrill of it all is that God made me!”
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.
John 1:3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.
Genesis 1:10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handy-work.
Ephesians 5: 22-33
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church– 30 for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” 32 This is a profound mystery–but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ ? 6 So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
