I know I said that I would do a recipe monthly, but I would like to do it more often! So here it goes;
This recipe cam out of a Goose Berry Patch recipe book for Church Suppers!
Roepke Family Casserole
Dana Roepke says:
"This is one of my family's favorites. My youngest daughter began making this when she was 7. She divided it into 2 casseroles, one for her grandparents and one for us! "
10-3/4 oz. can cream of chicken
I made this for our church, and it was delicious!
Today's verse of the week is, all of Ruth! I know that's more than a couple of verse's, but you could NEVER get more than enough of God's wonderful word! I storngly suggest that you read it. I've been reading it this week, for my devotions. She was a VERY biblical woman. She is a virtues daughter-in-law. Next time you pick up your bible, read the book of Ruth! (As long as it's not in the middle of church :))

Femininity! What is the definition of this word that our modern day world has turned aside?
"Femininity (also called womanliness) refers to qualities and behaviors judged by a particular culture to be ideally associated with or especially appropriate to women and girls"
This is the definition of femininity. What does our world say femininity is? Well, our culture has decided that being feminine is well, weird! That a woman should have the same strength and power of a man. I disagree. We, as female's, don't have the strength that a male has. For example: We don't have the strength to pick up a 50-80 pound box, when a man does. It's just the way God created us differently. A female can do things around the house that a male can't do, such as, organization skills. So, do I believe that male's and female's are created equally, no.
Though females aren't as strong as male's doesn't mean they are too delicate to work.
God designed male and female in his image! Let's not destroy what he created us to be.

Memorial Day! A honoring holiday. A day for us as American's to honor the veterans that gave their lives for their country! The rows and rows of veterans who gave their lives to protect us.
Here's a Memorial Day poem!
As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave
They fought for their Country
As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine
As we all are gathered here
To pay them our respect
Let's pass this word to others
It's what they would expect
I'm sure that they would do it
If it were me or you
To show we did not die in vein
But for the red, white and blue.
Let's pass on to our children
And to those who never knew
What these soldiers died for
It's the least we can do
Let's not forget their families
Great pain they had to bear
Losing a son, father or husband
They need to know we still care
No matter which war was fought
On the day that they died
I stand here looking at these flags
Filled with American pride.
So as the bugler plays out Taps
With its sweet and eerie sound
Pray for these soldiers lying here
In this sacred, hallowed ground.
Take home with you a sense of pride
You were here Memorial Day.
Celebrating the way Americans should
On this solemnest of days.

"More than a fill-in-the-blank Bible study, Raising Maidens of Virtue is an engaging tool for mothers to use in training daughters who are approaching womanhood to think biblically. Through stories, conversational teachings, illustrations, and memory-making projects, Raising Maidens of Virtue covers topics such as guarding the tongue, idleness, sibling relationships, honoring parents, contentment, modesty, purity, cleanliness, and feminine biblical beauty."
I strongly suggest the book!
In this chapter of Raising Maidens of Virtue it talked about The Fence Dwellers. Here is a summary of the chapter, The Fence Dwellers:
There once was a Gardener who had a gorgeous garden of flowers and herbs! His flowers were the most vibrant and healthy. One day the flowers by the fence saw the rocks on the other side and decided that they wanted to be strong like them and independent. So, these flowers ripped there gorgeous, vibrant petals off, and covered themselves with clay hoping to be like the stone. They totally rebelled against being a flower. When the other flowers saw this they began to do the same, except they didn't rip all there petals off. As time went on, the birds stopped nesting their, and the bee's and butterflies went elsewhere to find flowers for pollination.When the Gardener went into the garden he was very sad at what he saw. He asked the flowers why they had tried to be something they were not. They flowers near the fence didn't hear him though, because they had died. They other flowers heard him, and suddenly it began to rain and they were all happy to be made new and refreshed!
So, the fence dwellers died because they were trying to be something they weren't, while the others lived because they were happy for being what they were! Yes, the others did pull some of there petals off, but not all of them. You see, they were trying to "fit in" with the others. Romans 8:5-8 is a good example!
