still searching for new ideas for cooking and we are perogy fans, so I found this site.... lots of ideas.


You ask why I follow this Jesus?

Why I love Him the way I do?

When the world's turned away from His teachings
And the people who serve Him are few.

It's not the rewards I'm after
Or gifts that I hope to receive

It's the Presence that calls for commitment
It's the Spirit I trust and believe.

The LORD doesn't shelter His faithful
Or spare them all suffering and pain,

Like everyone else I have burdens,
And walk through my share of rain.

Yet He gives me a plan and a purpose,
And that joy only Christians have known,

I never know what comes tomorrow,
But I do know I'm never alone.

It's the love always there when you need it;
It's the words that redeem and inspire,

It's the longing to ever be with Him
That burns in my heart like a fire.

So you ask why I love my LORD Jesus?

Well, friend, that's so easy to see,
But the one thing that fills me with wonder is

Why Jesus loves someone like me.

day and hour that no man knows????

In ancient Israel, two witnesses in agreement sighted the first sliver of the new moon to determine each new month. Since no one knew the exact hour of the new moon’s appearance before hand, it kept people in a continual state of alertness, watching in the heavens to declare the glory of YHVH.

Now, because the first sighting of the new moon couldn't be *predicted*, the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah) always begins on a day and hour that no man knows. Does that phrase sound familiar?

Think about that. All preparations for this Feast had to be made in advance. What a wonderful way to set the record straight as to just Who is in control, huh? I don't know about you, but I sure do need these reminders. Guarding and 'tending' this Feast is a favorite of mine because of that!

I have been reading a book about the end times and I have an interest in the Feasts, so this has me intrigued.

Google Earth–If you have not seen Google Earth, you are missing something spectacular. It is a program that has to be downloaded to your computer. Once you have installed it, you can type in an address or attraction and see satellite images. A friend told me yesterday that she was reading to her child about dikes in Amsterdam. After the passage was read and narrated, she asked her daughter to describe what she thought a dike looked like. Then they went to Google Earth and were able to see one up close. You can find Google Earth at

Wordle–This one is fun, though there may be fewer uses for it in a Mason school than some of the other sites. Wordle is a place where you can copy and paste large amounts of text and create a “Word Cloud”. Here is an example of a word cloud I made out of the first four chapters of Mason’s A Philosophy of Education. The more times a word appears in the text, the larger its image in the word cloud. This is useful for pulling out the main themes in difficult documents like the Declaration of Independence, or for helping older children with composition by allowing them to see whether or not the most prominent ideas are the ones they intended. Make your own word cloud at


this is just a portion of what she wrote... please click on the link to read the whole thing


"She marches. The body. His bride. Built on a rock. She comes with light. The truth of the despised. And He has spoken. Our gates will not hold. We shall not prevail."

The church does not hide for fear of the culture, the world, the enemy. She has no walls, no gates to bar. She marches into hell. Her orders come from He who has been given "all authority in heaven and on earth." So she fears no other. She is not on the defense. She is not neutral. She is on the offense.

Her message is love.

His name is Jesus.

And demons tremble.

I was reading an article today in a magazine and one line popped out me, and made me stop and ponder.

"Much of our modern day Christianity 
places strong emphasis on
Jesus Christ being Savior, 
but little, if any emphasis, 
on Jesus Christ being Lord."


I came across this guy's blog today.  I am intrigued by the minimalist way of life.  I am not sure I could go quite this far though.  Take a peek at what he packed for his journey -

I can see guy's getting away with this, but do you suppose a woman could?
