This Too Shall Pass!!

Whatever You Are Going Through- Walk Through It By Faith, and Not By Sight!!

-We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
(2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Hey Neighbor!

Sometimes it seems like we’ve become burdened down with more weight than we can carry, but never forget the our God is a Heavy Load-lifter and a Mind-Regulator, and This Too, Shall Pass!!

Here’s Another Oldie-but- a-Goodie!!


It’s been said that as We live this life, We will find that We are either;

Going through troubles..

Just coming out of troubles…

Or about to go through troubles…

For those of You going through today, I would like to Encourage You to Walk through it by Faith, and Not By Sight.

Take a Read through 2 Corinthians Chapter 4:

Paul tells Us that When we go through life’s tribulations; deterioration of the family, divorce and bitter separations, mental and emotional breakdown, financial woes, physical illness and pain, etc., If we will walk through it trusting in, and relying on God, then Our suffering is but a temporary, momentary, affliction…

And This Too Shall Pass!!

No!! Our troubles aren’t going to cease whenever we want them to; it’s not our own timing that’s important, but it’s God’s timing.

-But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

(Psalms 31:14-15)

Paul says that this current suffering that we are experiencing, in the natural, will produce great gains for Us spiritually, and eternally.

So although we are experiencing suffering in this fleshly tent, and these bodies that we live in are dying and deteriorating daily, Paul reminds Us that the inner man- the Spirit Man- is being refreshed and renewed daily!!

Paul encourages Us, as he reminds us that although there is trouble all around Us…

As we we walk through with God, He will give Us peace…so we’re not stressed-out.

When we are confused and perplexed, He gives us His grace (his kindness, mercy and favor)…so we’re not left in desperation and despair.

When we’re persecuted and it seems we’re fighting battles on every hand, Praise God we’re never forsaken nor defeated, because He causes Us to triumph over Our enemies.

Even when we are weak in the knees with fear and we fall down…it’s the Truth of God’s written Word that renews our Faith and Encourages Us to Get back up and Press On!!

Sometimes life’s roads appear to be rough, and rocky!!

And Yes!! Sometimes those mountains do look insurmountable, but your troubles won’t last always!!

God will give you hinds’ feet!!

And as you journey through these crooked places, with God’s Word in Hand and His Word hidden in Your Heart, you will make spiritual progress and You will make it out alright!!

By Faith, You will reach the summit – leaving your troubles and your sufferings far behind!!

So Be Encouraged Today!!

This Too Shall Pass!!

Super-Faith Sunday Riddle- Who Was She??

Hey Neighbor!

It’s Sunday, October 23rd, and Here is Your Super-faith-full female of the week!!

Can You You Solve My Riddle??


She was postured like Saul with Gamaliel, but it wasn’t the law that he taught.
She would not be alarmed by the others in class, found to be heavily burdened and distraught
The yoke she had chosen, was easily borne, and its’ weight was extremely light
Like a moth to a flame, she was drawn to her friend, for his aura was intensely bright
She would not be separated from her master, even when others chastised her and did chide
For he was her vine, and as the teacher’s branch, she had learned to remain and abide.
She was found intensely focused, not idle; and in front of the class she found rest
She raise her hand, and out came, ‘Jesus!!’ The Perfect answer to ace EVERY test!!


Who Was She??

Solution Saturday: Trivia Tuesday’s Answer and Answerers!!

– Why then do you (Eli) kick [trample upon, treat with contempt] My sacrifice and My offering which I commanded, and honor your sons (Hophni and Phinehas) above Me by fattening yourselves upon the choicest part of every offering of My people Israel? (1Samuel 2:29)

(The Parentheses and Emphasis are from 💕Tam)

Hey Neighbor!

This week, our CareBibleStudy class searched through the Bible for the last (priestly) Relative/descendant of the High Priest, Eli…that was on Tuesday!!

And on Thursday, we searched for a ‘faith-full’ follower/servant of God, who was also a descendant from one of the 12 tribes of Israel.

Unfortunately, we did not have a Super-faith Sunday Riddle this week, but you can look forward to a fresh one on tomorrow!!


Now, Here is a (partial) recap of Tuesday’s (Name That Relative) Question and/or a link, if you care to review the question in it’s entirety:

The Lord did finally make an end to the House of Eli when his last priestly descendant was banished to Anathoth, and was henceforth expelled from being The Lord’s High Priest!!

Who was this (priestly) descendant of Eli’s??


Can You Name That Relative/Priest??

Answer: Abiathar

So Solomon expelled Abiathar [descendant of Eli] from being priest to the Lord, fulfilling the word of the Lord which He spoke concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh. (1Kings 2:27)

Waiting ‘Faith-Fully’ for Jesus – A Sinner like Zacchaeus

Hey Neighbor!

Here’s another Oldie for Your Weekend!!



I was listening to one of my favorite preachers, while driving in the car…and she was speaking about Zacchaeus the publican/tax collector in Luke 19:1-10.

I remembered teaching on the lesson in Sunday school, and My husband, Dewitt taught the kids this cute little song…

“Zacchaeus was a Wee-lil’ man and a Wee-lil’ man was he…He climbed up in a Sycamore tree…For The Lord he wanted to see!”

It was Dewitt’s favorite Sunday School Song, as a boy!

While listening to the broadcast, I was reminded of Dewitt’s boy-like spirit, when he climbed up in a tree to get a glimpse of our President.

It was during the 2008 Presidential Election, and Barack Obama was coming to St. Louis.

The Hubby and I were both beyond thrilled as we headed out for the St. Louis Arch Grounds, clad in our Obama T-shirts and hats.

Now, I normally shy away from large crowds, but I was excited…and really wanted to actively participate in such a historic occasion for Black America, as we were embarking upon electing our First African-American President.

So there we were hanging out with over 50,000 strangers and yet it seemed like we were all a large multicultural family ‘in fellowship,’ as Everyone had come together on one accord to support Barack Obama.

It was an awesome experience!!

So we all stood and waited in the ‘line that didn’t end’ until we cleared the Secret Service entrance to get onto the Arch grounds.

So Dewitt decided he was going to go and get us coffee, and it seemed as if he was taking forever to get back…

And he was, because he was bursting at the seams with excitement.

He was running around, savoring and capturing those historic moments…he was taking photos of everything that moved.

He was so enthusiastic about our new President!!

When he finally made it back onto the Arch grounds, it was just before Barack appeared on stage, so he got an idea to climb up into one of the trees to try to get a glimpse of our next President.

WOW!! What a Weirdo, huh??

So of course…The Secret Service approached him, without guns drawn (Thank God!!) and made him get his overzealous tail down from that tree!

Sounds pretty funny, huh??

But it really did happen…and maybe the idea originated from his Favorite Sunday School Song about Zacchaeus, The Wee-lil Man.

Here’s the Story:

In Luke 19:1-10 Zacchaeus, the tax collector, was overzealous also -like Dewitt- only Zacchaeus was trying to see Jesus!!

Jesus was passing through Jericho, on the way to raise Lazarus from the dead, when this dwarf- like publican, determinedly decided that HE WAS GOING TO SEE JESUS!!

He had heard folks in the crowds talking about this, Jesus; and he believed the stories and wanted to see this One who John the Baptist declared to be, “The Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the World!”…And although he was considered amongst the ‘chiefest’ of sinners, being the chief tax collector, by trade; Zacchaeus believed that by his merely setting eyes on Jesus, his sins could be forgiven.

So upon Jesus’ arrival into town, he ran ahead of the crowd, like a little boy, and climbed up into a Sycamore tree, anticipating that he could get one glimpse of Jesus. Remember Zacchaeus was a very small man; he could not see beyond even those individuals of average height. But he was determined that Nothing would Prevent him from setting his ‘Faith-Filled’ eyes on the Messiah!!

He had never seen Jesus before and was trying to identify which one of the disciples he was. He wanted to be certain about his Saviour…yet he was not expecting to be acknowledged or recognized by Jesus, at all! So when Jesus passed through and looked up at him, calling him out, by Name, saying, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.”
Zacchaeus must have been so amazed!!

Now the Hebrew people did not converse with sinners, like Zacchaeus (publicans). I would imagine that besides his own household and his employees, who were required to talk to him, he was not spoken too at all, publicly.

So when Jesus came into town, acknowledging this sinner by name, proclaiming that He MUST stay at his house, Zaccheaus quickly climbed down; with a penitent heart and begins confessing all of his wrongdoing and declaring that he will make retribution for his sin of theft against the poor, according to the Law.

He knows that Jesus will not despise a broken spirit nor a contrite heart, according to the Psalms 51:17. So Zacchaeus empties out before Jesus then eagerly, Welcomes WALKING SALVATION into his home.

Jesus came seeking those that were lost and Zacchaeus placed himself in position to be found by Jesus.

When Jesus returns, will he find You waiting ‘Faith-Fully,’ like Zacchaeus??

Will You be eagerly anticipating His arrival?? And although You’ve been an imperfect person; a sinner, saved by grace, Will You still look confidently for Him??…believing that He will arrive bringing full redemption of your sins; Opening wide The Gates to His Heavenly Home for you saying,

“Well Done My Good and ‘Faith-Full’ Servant!! You Must come to My house today to stay with Me, eternally!!

Trivia Thursday – Name That Prophet!!

-So Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah. The king rose to meet her, bowed to her, sat down on his throne, and caused a seat to be set at his right hand for her, the king“s mother. (1Ki 2:19)

Hey Neighbor!

On (Trivia) Tuesday, We were searching through the Bible for a certain king (Solomon), who had no choice but to execute his misbehaving older brother, Adonijah!!

Adonijah had deceptively sought the assistance of the queen-mom, Bath-Sheba, as he strategically sought to strengthen and exalt himself within the kingdom.

In the lead scripture above, we see where Bathsheba approached her son, Solomon to make this ill-advised request, on the behalf of Adonijah!!

This was not a very wise move on the part of Bathsheba…and although Solomon did not discipline his mother for making this near treasonous request, he did admonish her…for the queen-mom was not operating in the best interest of her king/son.

Now there was another queen-mom, who was indeed striving to be an asset to her son and his kingdom, although he was a defiantly, wicked king.

She had witnessed the great sufferings of his father, and wanted to lend her son some wisdom and advice from his father’s fateful reign as king.

This mother graciously approached her son, recommending that he seek counsel from his father’s ‘tried and true’ seer, regarding the fallout from her misbehaving son’s afternoon of drunkenness and revelry!!

The queen mother had overheard her son’s frantic conversation inside the banquet house…and thus the king was extremely terrified and greatly perplexed with his troubles, so much so that the blood had drained from his face, and his knees had begun to knock!!

When the King’s great and ‘wise’ counsel of men could not help her son to resolve his perplexing problem, mom stepped in with her wise recommendation…

It was time to call ‘The Man of God!!’

Who was this ‘Tried and true’ Prophet/Seer that had come so highly recommended by the queen-mom??


Can You Name This Prophet??

Nuggets Of Wealth for Life and Health: Probiotic Rich, Fermented Tomatoes!!

Hey Neighbor!

Your Health Must Matter Most To You!!

I am bringing in my tomatoes for canning!!

Last year was my first trial at canning, because I had cucumbers and tomatoes growing out of my ears!!

I had no idea what to do with my abundant harvest, so I called my Aunts, but nobody knew how to can.

So I was forced to learn on my own!

I bought my mason jars, which were very limited in quantities in most stores, so I just ordered them from Amazon!!

I also found this wonderful website called, Mary’s Nest

Mary teaches several different canning techniques, but I particularly like this fermented tomatoes recipe because it’s very rich in probiotics (good bacteria) and therefore great for gut health!!

Anyway, I adapted the recipe to my own preferences…go and check her out on YouTube to get your canning tutorial and the full details for your exact measurements!!

My ingredients:

Cherry Tomatoes (from my garden)
Organic Green onions
2 tablespoons of Redman’s Real Salt (no table salt)
Fresh garlic (diced)
Basil (from my garden)
And fresh Rosemary (from my garden). Filtered/Spring Water (no chlorinated tap water)

Basic Instructions:

Clean your jars and Wash your veggies, remove the vines and poke your tomatoes with a toothpick, alternate your ingredients (as you add them to your jar)

Pour in your Filtered water to cover all ingredients and close it with a metal canning lid or plastic lid!!

Fermenting Process:

You will want to let your canned tomatoes sit out on your countertop for 2-3 days (out of direct sunlight) so that the good bacteria can begin to eat the natural sugars in your tomatoes and grow. Preferable temp in your kitchen would be 65-72 degrees)

Because your ferment is going to begin to release gasses (CO2), You will need to burp it (once daily) while it sits on your countertop. You should begin to see bubbles moving about your jar!!

***This type of canning is not shelf stable, and must be refrigerated after several days!!

Probiotic Rich, Fermented Tomatoes 😋

I like to place a towel underneath my jar, because sometimes your fermenting liquid will begin to release and leak, as the pressure builds!!

If you like, taste your ferment after 2-3 days, then refrigerate it for up to two weeks. It will continue to ferment in your refrigerator, although much more slowly.

If you can wait those 14 days before digging in, you will be amazed at the flavor!!

(Your refrigerated ferment can last up to six months)

Now, I also grow my own lettuce, so when I’m ready for a salad, I just spoon over some of my fermented tomatoes, add some olive oil, and cracked pepper, and I’m in heaven for just a few moments!!

Give it a try, even if you have to go and purchase your own ingredients…you won’t regret it and your tummy will certainly bless you💕

Trivia Tuesday- Name That King!!

-While there was war between the houses of Saul and David, Abner was making himself strong in the house of Saul. Now Saul had a concubine whose name was Rizpah, daughter of Aiah. And Ish-bosheth said to Abner, Why have you gone in to my father“s concubine? (2 Samuel 3:6-7)

In the lead scripture above, we find Abner, stretching forth his control and authority over Saul’s younger son, Ishbosheth…by taking claim and possession of the (deceased) King’s concubine.

You see, after the death of Saul and Prince Jonathan…Abner, Saul’s uncle and military commander, sat Ishbosheth upon his (deceased) father’s throne, in Israel.

In reality, Uncle Abner was the mastermind and the actual figure of authority in Israel, while Ishbosheth merely sat upon the throne…in (Saul’s) name only!

This power-play of Abner’s, further humbled and humiliated a powerless Ishbosheth, and it also publicly revealed the gaps in this young king’s armor.

Now, in a similar story in the Bible, we find that another close relative of a freshly anointed king (this time an older brother) has also made a power-play to strengthen and exalt himself by using their (deceased) father’s concubine as his power pawn ♟

Although this princely brother had been next in-line to the throne, he had failed to receive enough public support to successfully reign in their father’s stead.

So, in his second attempt towards the throne, the king’s older brother approached the queen mom, peaceably, and requested to marry this concubine.

When word of this older brother’s petition reached the king’s ears, the king quickly recognized his big brother’s clever request for what it truly was…yet another strategic, attempt to usurp the throne!!

This angry king had previously shown his big brother great mercy, but this time, he must strengthen himself, and for the surety of his throne, the king must remove and execute this Usurper!!


Who was this (older) Brother/Usurper??


Who Was This King??

Bible Brain Teaser (Find 30 Books) Answers!!

I forgot to Post Your Answers to This Brain Teaser!!


Can you find thirty (30) books of the Bible in the paragraph, below? Actually there are thirty-one (31) Bible names if you can find the variant of one Old Testament prophet.


This is a most remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman in an airplane seat pocket, on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, keeping him occupied for hours. He enjoyed it so much, he passed it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Another friend studied it while playing his banjo. Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend, was so intrigued by it she mentioned it in her weekly newspaper column. Another friend judges the job of solving this puzzle so involving, she brews a cup of tea to help her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot. That’s a fact. Some people, however, will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or a scholar to see some of them at the worst.
Research has shown that something in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have in seeing the books in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new record. The local paper, The Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of the most difficult they had ever seen. As Daniel Humana humbly puts it, “The books are all right here in plain view hidden from sight.” Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. Also, keep in mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember, there is no need for a mad exodus; there really are 30 books of the Bible lurking somewhere in this paragraph waiting to be found. God Bless.

Here Are The Books in the order they appear in the Paragraphs:


1. Amos

2. Mark

3. Luke

4. John

5. Joel

6. Judges

7. Job

8. Hebrews

9. Esther

10. Acts

11. James

12. Ruth

13. Romans

14. Titus

15. Osee

16. Matthew

17. Genesis

18. Philemon

19. Chronicles

20. Daniel

21. Nahum

22. Hosea

23. Lamentations

24. Revelation

25. Timothy

26. Samuel

27. Numbers

28. Malachi

29. Peter

30. Exodus

31. Kings

Elisha died, and they buried him. Bands of the Moabites invaded the land in the spring of the next year. (2Kings 13:20)

Hey Neighbor!

This week, our CareBibleStudy class searched through the Bible to Name a Prophet, whose bones caused a deceased man to be revived…now that was on Tuesday.

Then on Thursday, we searched the Bible to identity a certain king, who had given his nephew a military promotion; wherefore this young man served as Israel’s Army Commander!!

We also worked on another Bible Brain Teaser this week, where we found 30-31 Books of the Bible.

Here is a link; Just in case you missed it!!

Thanks to🥇Loveunknown, and🥈Pedro, who both found all 30 books, but they were still missing (#31) that elusive ‘variant.’


And Much Thanks to Warren, 💪🏾who identified that ‘variant,’ or the Greek name of the Prophet Hosea (#31) that we were all missing…including myself😊

From Warren: The variant: Hosea (Osee) “it takes a minister or a scholar (to see) some of…”

“As he saith also in (Osee,) I will call them my people, which were not my people; And her beloved, which was not beloved.”
Romans 9:25 KJV


Once Again, Here is Tuesday’s partial (Name That Prophet) Trivia Question:

Also, here is a link to Tuesday’s Trivia Question (in its entirety) including comments:


After the hearing of the Word of the Lord, It was revealed to Ezekiel, that dry bones could live, indeed!!

Now there was another well known prophet who caused a deceased man to stand to his feet…and not because he prophesied to the bones, as Ezekiel had done.

But because there remained power and virtue in this prophet’s bones, even after he had been dead and buried, in his own sepulcher.

So much so, that as this (deceased) man was being laid to rest…and as his body was being lowered into the ground…it made contact (in the grave) with this Old Testament prophet’s bones…and immediately, the recently deceased man was revived, and also stood to his feet👣

Which Old Testament Prophet’s Bones were these?

Answer: The Prophet Elisha

-As a man was being buried [on an open bier], such a band was seen coming; and the man was cast into Elisha“s grave. And when the man being let down touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet. (2Kings 13:21)
