      Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019
      1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
      2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
      3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
      4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
      7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
      8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
      The following verse stood out to me...
      5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
      At first glance it seemed to me this person’s soul is poured out with intense desire to have God’s direction in keeping His Word.
      I made a small wood fire in our backyard for my granddaughter, Julia, since she would be staying overnight with us. My wife and Julia stayed outside at the fire for about half an hour. Then, I found myself alone to watch the fire die out on a particularly lovely evening. So I took my verse from above and began to repeat it for memorization. As I repeated the verse, I tried to contemplate the words and apply them to what I was seeing around me. 
      The moon and stars were out now peering through the scattered clouds above.
      [Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Genesis 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, Genesis 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.]
      Thought 1         
      The moon has stayed his course since the day God created him, also the stars, obeying the statutes directed by God from the first day they were created. Can you imagine God’s direction to the Moon and stars, “moon you will have a path through the sky above the earth, stars you will occupy the firmament above the moon and be clearly visible in the cloudless night sky.”
      Then, the trees, grass, even the air we breathe obey the statues God gave them from the beginning. None of these creations have souls, none have hearts, none have intelligence, but they all observe God’s statutes, His instructions for their limited time on earth.
      Thought 2
      What if we were like the moon, stars, trees, grass, or the other creations which have no soul? We would be directed to keep God’s statutes without choosing to keep them. This is not the image of God, there would be no dominion over other creatures, or over the earth. We would not be capable of experiencing the joy and peace of learning the love of God
      Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
      Thought 3 (October 2, 2019)
      Is the psalmist pleading God to force God’s statutes to become the man’s ways? No, he is speaking of his own failure in keeping God’s statutes and his desire to keep them, very much like Paul in Romans 7:14-25.
      God doesn’t work through force to turn men from their ways that they would desire His statutes or desire God Himself. Men must reject (repent) put aside his own ways and voluntarily seek God and His statutes.

Jim if its that good how about sharing the recipe

 

sammich and peaches

 

Here ya go lady:

 

Stir Fried Shrimp

 

 

 

For two people you will need:

One bag, stir fry frozen veggies.

One half of a two pound bag of frozen shrimp. (2 lb. is cheaper per pound than one pound bags)

I like raw shrimp rather than cooked. Less tendency to overcook.

White rice.

Toasted Sesame Oil.

Soy Sauce.

Olive Oil.

Honey.

Johnny's Seasoning.

 

Fresh Garlic Clove

Garlic Powder.

 

One med white onion

First you put the rice on to cook.

Take one cup of regular rice, not minute rice.

Then bring two cups of water to a boil, add a pat or two of butter and 1/2 tsp salt.

When the water comes to a boil, pour in the rice and turn the heat down to number two and a half.

Put a lid on the pan of rice and simmer at this setting for 20 minutes, use a timer.

When done, take it off the burner and add a couple tablespoons of butter or margarine.

Fluff up the rice a little with a fork.

I usually start peeling the shrimp and cooking the stir fry veggies while the rice is cooking.

Peel half of a 2 lb. bag of shrimp.

Slice one the white onion, press 5 cloves of fresh garlic. Lightly sauté the onion and garlic until soft.

 

Add the onion and garlic to one bag of stir fry veggies and cook in open skillet.

I liberally shake some Johnny's seasoning and Garlic Powder on the veggies.
Don't overcook the veggies.

The liquid part of this recipe you will just have to guess at. Moderation is the key

I add some toasted sesame oil, olive oil, soy sauce.

When veggies are almost done, I add a liberal amount of honey. (if you add the honey sooner it will burn)

When veggies are done, remove from the heat and cover the pan.

Now start cooking the shrimp in an open skillet.

Add some toasted sesame oil, olive oil, soy sauce, and honey. (honey last so it mixes well with the oils)

Not very much of the sesame oil, a little goes a long way.

Shrimp cook really fast, don't over cook. They should all be evenly colored when done. If they start shrinking, they are being over cooked.

When shrimp are done, add them to the stir fry veggies, then add the rice, mix well with a large spoon and cover the pan.

That's it!

Making what I call a "Dagwood".  Dagwood being Blondies husband in the comic strip and he was famous for making massive sandwiches with just about everything in the refrigerator on them.  Going to make one with Ham, Sliced Turkey, Beef, Cotto Salami, Pepper Jack Cheese, tomato, SweetFire pickles, deli mustard with horseradish hips,  and Mayo.  Dill pickle spears on the side.

Sounds good.  I would add some chopped fresh ginger to it. I always use fresh veggies, or ones that I have frozen like leeks, fennel,   

 

Although I always use olive oil for stir fries, they say you shouldn't as it breaks down under the heat.  You should use groundnut oil instead which stand the high heat used in stir fries.

(Coconut oil actually stands the heat best.)

 

Last night my hubby took me out for dinner so instead of cabbage and ham, we had Mexican. I had a taco and enchilada.  Num!

 

Tonight it's hot dogs. Fried. Dark. Crisp. Tasty.

 

Halibut fries sound intriguing...oops - read that wrong! LOL

I had some left over new potatoes, which normally I would sauté in butter and olive oil with garlic and parsley. Today, I placed them into a dish and added some onion a spoonful of Crème Fraîche, salt and pepper , a little powdered garlic, topped it with some grated cheddar cheese, and a sprinkling of paprika, and placed in the oven for ½ hour at 200C.  Served with salad.
