'How truly wonderful and delightful it is to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity! It’s as precious as the sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes. This harmony can be compared to the dew dripping from Mount Hermon, which flows down upon the hills of Zion. Indeed, that is where Yahweh has decreed his blessings will be found, the promise of life forevermore!'
Blessed are those who delight in the Lord
For it is in Him we find rest
Though we see the week unfold
We sit and think and memories unfold
All the hurt comes to the surface
Indeed we know the true
We are but mere mortals
We cry out to our God to prove the innocence
Of our loved ones
Though we wished to dispute
Though they wished to silence
We take the case to our God
His wisdom is profound
His power is vast
Who has resisted Him and come out unscathed?
He moves the mountains
So in the midst of trails
My mind look back to last year
As I walked and felt the unloving nature of the heart of men
For God has created us
We are His children
He moves the mountains without us knowing
He shakes the earth from its place
He shines light in the darkness
He speaks to the sun and it does not shine
He seals off the light of the stars
He sees the heart of all
I have loved the week
The sun had shine even with a cold wind
The sun brings a smile to my face
The sun brings a smile to people’s faces
We look in anticipation and pleaded
With our Lord for mercy
We waited for a long time
Even though we were innocent
We do not believe He would give us a hearing
And we felt the crush with a storm
Our wounds multiply as we look and wait
As we hold our breath
We are overwhelmed with misery
If it is a matter of strength, it is only found in Him
He is mighty, and a matter of justice,
Who can challenge Him? No one is like our God
Only for a moment as wait
I forget the troubles of the world
I reflected on the events of the week
I have found that events brings memories
So I focus on my plants
My plants are coming nicely and
I decided to add another tree to the list
Already have a pear and now cherry Duo
Can't wait to see them grow
So the week unfold and verdict is set
A relief brings back a sigh
And the journey to restoration starts
For today we do not forget but let us
Sing, O daughters of the earth
Shout and pray!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart
For we have waited for the Lord
They have done violence to the Law
The Lord is righteous in our midst
He will do no unrighteousness
Every morning He brings His justice to light
He never fails
But the unjust knows no shame
Therefore we will wait on the Lord
For the Lord is always near to all
The mighty One will save
He will rejoice over us with gladness
He will quiet us with His Love
He will rejoice over us with His singing
For early in the morning
I hear the birds singing
He comforts those who mourn
So our eyes look to the Lord our God
Blessed are the merciful
For they shall obtain more mercy.
'A psalm of David. Adonai , who may dwell in Your tent? Who may live on Your holy mountain? The one who walks with integrity, who does what is right, and speaks truth in his heart, '
Psalms 15:1-2 TLV
Good Morning or afternoon or evening. You are welcomed doesn’t matter the time.
Hope and pray you had a good Easter, the celebration of Christ Jesus, He is RISEN! Now that is good news. I learned something about the Easter egg to look at it from a different point, eggs represent a new life and so does Easter for all. It is not in the Bible but sure like the idea of new life, new hope and knowing that this is not it but life doesn’t end on earth, wow what a glorious day that will be. Praise be to the Father, Jesus Chirst and the Holy Spirit for walking with us in this journey.
Come with me, yes if this your first time then you should know. Life is a story and you can make it fun or miserable. The choice is yours.
Come let us sit in the vault of treasure today.
Thank you for stopping by, please note that this is information only. So I reflect on the way we process food and the different ways they are made. So today I look at Fermentation:
What is Fermentation?
Fermentation is used everywhere in the world, throughout history, it is simply the form of food preservation that does not require any heat or artificial energy source.
With no oxygen, microbes (or microorganism is a microscopic organism which may exist in a single-celled form or a colony cells) can convert sugars into acids, alcohol and gas
Why do we ferment foods?
Fermentation in food processing – converting carbohydrates to alcohol or organic acids using microorganisms – yeasts or bacteria under anaerobic conditions
Fermentation microbes are often the same as the ones found in the gut, so eating fermented food can be a way to top up the gut flora.
Fermentation are not only used to preserve foods but Ferment foods are used because they serve:
To enrich the diet through development of a diversity of flavours, aromas and textures in food substrates
To preserve substantial amounts of food through lattice acid, alcohol, acetic acid and alkaline fermentations
To enrich food substrates with protein, essential amino acids and vitamins
To eliminate anti nutrients
To reduce cooking time and the associated use of fuel
Some of foods that are Fermented:
Different methods of fermentation are used in breadmaking, alcoholic drinks and vinegar production, making yogurts and cheeses; pickling fruits and vegetables, curing meats; making soy and fish sauces; softening olives and removing bitterness and the production of chocolate from cocoa beans
Milk has a very short shelf-life but when fermented can last for months. This range from yogurt fermented for a few hours to large cheeses prepared over many months.
Soya beans have high levels of protein and oil which is extracted as a kind of milk. Fermented soya also produce diverse outcome similar to milk such as miso paste used in soups and seasoning to tempeh which is a cultural soya bean cake
Cucumbers are turned into pickles using lattice acid bacteria and brine with five to eight percent salt concentrated
'Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. '
Oh come let us sing
and make a joyful sound to the Lord
It has been cold this week
What a week? I am not so sure
Are we in spring or winter
For as I opened the blinds to let the sun in
To my surprise it was snowing
In April not rain but snow
So I had time to reflect
Look at the detail of Christ
Few words kept coming across my eyes
Why do you seek? He asked His parents
Man shall not live by bread alone
But by every word of God
The temptation of the world
Cannot be overcome alone
For it is in Christ that we are set free
For though I walk through the valley
Or thrown into the fire I am never alone
Launch out into the deep and let down
Your nets for a catch
So I walk into the deep
A deep end that requires LOVE
Not a feeling for it did pass
For when I had no feeling
I knew what love really was
Love is an action that is incredibly patient
Love does not reason in it heart
But believes the best in people
It goes out of it way to give without expecting a return
So I listen to the music
And I dance to it as it snows outside
And then I braved it outside
Why? I like to walk
With winter coats and hats on for the sun was out but cold
Even with the cold under the sunlight I feel the warmth
It made me smile and forget the troubles
As I cast all my cares and troubles to Him
And as I remember the season of resurrection
Who do you say I am?
The Christ of God
Then pick up your cross and follow me
No looking back
Do not be afraid to follow me
For I will show You who to fear
Fear God, who has the power to cast your
Soul into hell, Yes do fear Him!
In reverent fear
Therefore let Your words be few
Better not to vow than to vow and not pay
For the Lord is faithful
His grace abounds in each of us
He is slow to anger and abandoning in Love
Yes I did decide to buy a foam roller
Then I wonder why this late because they are incredible
Getting a massage, wow so I feel all the aches and pains
In a good way, see I get pleased very easily
Little things make my eyes smile
Oh come let us sing
Praise to the Lord!
“neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:39 NIV
The Story continues….as my imagination runs wild, we see in the eyes of Folrose, Nwe Amiya and Athan. Welcome to the next part, series of short stories!
How are we going to get away with this, running as fast as little legs could carry her. Nwe is been nothing but trouble ever since meeting her, all the adventures they have done together as Florose taught. She continued to run and since leaving home life has been full of adventure.
Remembering the day that she decided to live the manor and venture into the world of humans. In the woods, as she spoke to her dear father and mother. I am going into the human world, looking at the two and in the hopes to be stopped. But they both spoke together, that is great honey. You will love it and make sure you come back in five years. What, and why? Looking at both for some explanation as to why there was a time limit to my stay in the human, as this genuinely puzzled me.
Why would I come back if I like it?
I didn’t want to come back and I certainly was not about to let them know this. I have studied these humans and they seem nice, how wrong was I. Chased by a mad man and woman with dogs and looking for a way to escape.
It has been five years today as I recall the promise made to my parents to go back, never thought I would disobey a direct order under these circumstances. Now I do wish I was in the land of peace and looking at the beautiful forest.
The beautiful forest was hidden from the world and everyone was free, we could see how the humans were destroying the land. It is parallel to ours and we have the forest and large trees, our houses are built on the trees, the flowers and the water falls on every corner to help sustain the plants.
A storm of rage and panic pushed into my chest as we came to the end of the line. Why are you doing this? Mind racing, and why follow me? I have nothing to give. As they both stopped, Amiya looked at me in silent curiosity for a moment, I have my reasons, I’m sorry Athan that you must suffer in this. It was not the plan and not my purpose but something has to be done.
