At the end of last year's school year I agreed to help our area Girl Scouts and I just haven't had the time to blog. Christmas time and a new camera gave me the kick I needed to post these pics. I hope you enjoy them.
Whether you coat the walls with a shade of buttercup...
Or change the mat in a favorite frame to the color of a sunbeam...
You can't go wrong with yellow if you want to brighten up a room!
Yes, these days it often gets passed over for blue, but what would a beach be without the glorious sunshine?
2 (.25 ounce) packages highly active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (110 degrees to 115
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups whole wheat flour
|1.||In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 5 minutes. Blend in sugar, salt and 3 cups all-purpose flour at low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Beat in egg and oil. Stir in whole wheat flour and enough remaining all-purpose flour to make a soft dough. Knead, I use my mixer with the dough hook, about 3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled or cover and refrigerate overnight. Punch dough down and form into dinner-size rolls. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Serve warm. If desired, dough may be kept up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Punch down daily. These are much better the second and third day. They never make it to the fourth day, lol.|

2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
3Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.Romans 14:6-20 (King James Version)
6He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
7For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
8For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
9For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
10But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
13Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
14I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
15But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.
16Let not then your good be evil spoken of:
17For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
18For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
19Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
20For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
These are just a few scriptures on the matter and I pray that I haven't messed up one line or word.
I feel like Christian vegetarians, Christian vegans, and Christian meat eaters sometimes twist these scripture to put the bible on their side. From what I've read, when it comes to eating meat it is a choice that God gives his people - Not a choice we should make for ourselves and then judge others about.
