'Tis The Season for SNOW!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We went to another missionaries house and had a great time of food and fellowship. For Black Friday, we went to market circle to see what deals we could find. (not really) We got out the Christmas decorations, but have not put up the tree. We will have a church Christmas party on the 21st of December.

We had a birthday in the family, our youngest son, Nehemiah turned 6, on the 28th of November. We just renewed our residence permit, to allow us in to stay in the country, that all went well. We are good for another year!

I have this recipe for Maple Syrup/Snow Cone Syrup that I thought I would share with you:

2 C White Sugar
1 C Water
1/2 t maple flavoring

Mix sugar and water in saucepan and bring to a boil, boil for 1 minute, add flavoring!

for snow cones, replace maple flavoring for, one packet of kool-aid, Enjoy

I store my syrup in an old syrup bottle, for the snow cone syrup, I use a sports bottle with a pop-up lid so you can squirt it on the ice.

'Tis the season for SNOW, well in our part of the the world we have to make the SNOW!!!!!

9 Years in Ghana!

We boarded the plane to Ghana 9 years ago. We left our home land and our loved ones, for a people we didn't know. Why? To tell them about Christ and how they too, can miss a burning hell, by excepting Jesus Christ as their Savior. To also teach them about the Bible and start a Biblical church in their area.

As I look back at the pictures over the years, I am teary eyed. God has done great things. Mark_5:19  Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. I have learned so much over the years. I came to Ghana not knowing how to do many things, that is required to make due here in Ghana. I have also learned, my way (or the American way) is not always what works here. They have taught me their ways and I have adapted to many of them. I first came, hating the hot weather. I now LOVE the weather. Year round it is summer! Palm trees, coconut tree, orange tree, banana trees, mango, plantain and so many more.

I am not going to lie, many times it is hard and you get discouraged. Then you have a pity party for yourself, ho hum whoa is me. Then you just have to reflect on how good God is, then you realize, you don't have it so bad. Pretty good actually! We are blessed with so many blessing!

Psa_97:12  Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. KJV

Before Thanksgiving?

I am listening to Bing Crosby's "A White Christmas" CD. I know it is WAY to early. Today being Election Day, I am trying hard to get my mind occupied on something. Can you tell? Besides thinking of "Silent Night" is more calming. The boys worked on the clutch on the car today with their Dad. Naomi and Nehemiah played on the slip and slide. It has been really warm here. My MS is reminding me it is still there. My right arm in trying to go numb,and my legs are tingling, but I am enduring. Feel fine, other than that.

I can't believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Nehemiah says, "When is Easter, and when do we get to eat chicken?" I said, "It's Thanksgiving, and we eat turkey." He says, "whatever." I have so many things to be thankful for. My salvation and my family are just two of so many. Well I guess the count down begins to see who our next President will be. 

Joseph was so proud he was dirty, from fixing the car
