Special Needs

I know the pain of being a special needs child parent, particularly for those whose child appears normal by most. You don’t want your child viewed by others as peculiar. You recognize that there is a special stigmatism placed on people with special needs, and you don’t want your children to live under them. You […]

Daniel Fast Day One

Daniel Fast Day One and I will admit that my wife and I have made some concessions this time.  As someone who has had bariatric surgery, I have to ensure that I have a certain amount of protein in my diet everyday, so I will be having a protein shake every morning for my breakfast, […]

Coming Soon! Daniel Fast 2014

Get ready, kiddies!  The blog will be getting steady updates soon as my congregation, Pleasant Valley Assembly of God, gets ready to begin our annual Daniel Fast.  I expect blessings, miracles and divine wisdom to flow as it did last year.  I will also be experimenting with new Daniel Fast recipes that I will post. […]

Bean Salad

My wife and I are entering our third week of our Daniel fast, which began on August 4th, and it has been a rough ride.  I admit that I went off the fast one day, using the excuse that my nephew was over helping me out, to cover for my taking him to breakfast for […]

Simple Vegetarian Chili

Okay, yesterday, we roasted vegetables and made an awesome veggie broth from those vegetables.  (As Anne Burrel says, “Brown food tastes good!”)  I promised you that I would post a vegetarian chili recipe to give those vegetables one more life, and here I am to deliver on that promise! So, at this point, you should […]

Take-Out @ Home Coming Soon

I know it has been some time since my last post.  Life has suddenly gotten much more complicated and busy, both of which are good things because I needed to get busy and face complication.  Haha, really.  The Word of God says, in the first chapter of James’ epistle: 2 My brethren, count it all joy […]

Chicken Tenders

While working on the ultimate fried chicken recipe, we received a generous donation of 30 pounds of chicken breasts for our Tuesday night Party for the Hungry in Stroudsburg.  Isn’t God good?  This gave me the amazing opportunity to tweak the recipe.  While this is a chicken tender recipe, it may actually work well for […]

Only by the Grace of God

It never seems to end, does it?  Just when you think you have a firm grasp of everything, be if for good or bad, something else comes along, the sole-purpose of which is to underscore just how little a grasp you actually have.  It’s like you finally get that moment of peace, and the universe […]

He Still Loves Me

He Still Loves Me   In 2003, the movie, The Fighting Temptations, starring Cuba Gooding Jr and Beyonce was released. It told the story of a struggling choir that made it big in the end. Members from the old R&B group, the Ojays, were in it, along with Christian rapper, T-Bone, Rue McClannahan, Melba Moore, […]

For Those Times When You NEED to Take the Creeps Down!

Oh yes!  It’s been one of those weeks.  It seems that people are doing their best to destroy my family and this anti-gun dude wants to take up arms!  But then God gives this to me, and I turn like a little kid ready to kick a can! For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, […]
