My hope in posting this blog is to help new marriages, relationships and maybe even those who have weathered the storms of life for many years and can identify with mine. I will be sharing my own marriage experiences, the good, the bad and some times the ugly. I will add, with Gods help we haven’t had many “ugly” situations and for that I am humbly thankful to God.
As a now 60 year old woman who loves God and the man He sent my way almost 39 years ago, I hope to encourage you all to “Hang in there” get through your issues and understand YOU ARE NOT ALONE, with real talk and Gods word. The Bible declares “There is nothing new under the sun”, someone somewhere is, has or will go through the same thing you are going through right now.
The work of Marriage, if it is to survive is ongoing, ever changing and requires flexibility. Just as you grow and change emotional, intellectually, and even physically, so do your relationships.
It has always been funny (not ha ha) to me how we are more inclined to be available, kind and more forgiving to a friend and even a stranger than we are likely to be with our spouses. Yes, the person we vowed before God, our family and our friends to “love, honor and cherish, till death do us part”. Think on that one for a little bit.
Real talk ladies and gentleman, along with scripture to encourage you, that’s what this blog is all about.
If my blog is a blessing to you, take a moment to share it with your friends, family and co-workers. Talk to others about what you get from it and share the link so that others will get the same encouragement.
“Share with the Lords people and practice hospitality”. Yep! That’s in the Bible.
I will also share some of my quick, healthy and easy recipes because I know what a chore cooking can be
Air fried or oven baked Eggplant
Slice eggplant about 1/2 inch,
Lay them on flat surface, sprinkle with salt, cover with paper towel for about 30 minutes to 1 hour
in a bowl beat 2 eggs
In a separate bowl mix
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 Teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Salt n pepper to taste
Dip eggplant in egg bath then cover well in bread crumbs mixture both sides, place on baking rack or baking sheet (sprayed with cooking oil). Spray the top of each eggplant with cooking oil and bake for about 15-20 in air fryer. Oven baked 400 degrees about 30 minutes until golden brown
On the same rack or baking sheet add whatever kind of cheese you like (I used feta) to one side of eggplant, add marinara and repeat. I topped with fresh basil from my herb garden. I kept them plain, sprinkled with feta cheese and topped with basil for my husband.
They are amazing
