the perfect egg…..

In my opinion, that is “somewhere in between” soft and medium. Not to the extreme in either direction. Much how I like most everything in life. smile Extremism, to me, just plain doesn’t sound good. 85% of the time I can make that perfect egg, no matter the method. I was asked recently by a dear friend, “how did you make that egg? It was just right….” I answered but, yesterday I was making boiled eggs again and really paid attention to my method.

The 1st ingredient in cooking the eggs is LOVE. Yep, Love the secret key to most All in life. 2nd tool is my cute little red pot, key word “little” which I believe is one of the key players in my egg, it hold exactly 2 large eggs and just enough water to “almost” cover the eggs. A very bit of the top shows just above the water line.

As you see, I put the eggs in the little red pot 1st, then add my cool tap water. (nope not cold/not hot)

I set my electric stove on Seven ( 7 a lucky #ha ha) wait & Watch for it to start boiling. And yes a watched pot does boil. (who came up with that saying that is never boils anyway?) Don’t leave the kitchen area. I learned the “hard” way, “don’t walk away Renee’ ” and go do other things, as it’s too easy to miss the perfect time to shut off that “little red pot”. That “little” red pot in the picture is pretty darn close.

While you are waiting and watching, is the time you can be prepping the things you are going to eat with the egg. Like avocado toast and some fruit. Or cottage cheese with red onions and avocado. Yep, I like avocados. Maybe a toasted bagel with apple butter on it. While your prepping, every 45 to 60 secs turn and check that little pot to see if it is boiling yet.

Ok! It’s Boiling, Turn It OFF! Let it sit one more minute then drain off the water. Do NOT put cold water on the eggs. Just let them sit and cool while you finish making your plate. Once your plate and breakfast drink: chickory coffee, herb tea, orange juice, or maybe a V-8 are all ready, it’s time to Crack the eggs, peel, add a dusting of Curry and some Slap your Momma seasoning and off you go for a Tasty Breakfast/Brunch with a “perfect egg”

Something I realized this time, while being “focused” on how I fixed my boiled eggs, was I am like the eggs. If I want the my inner self to come out ” in the perfection He created me to Be” my time with Him must start with the Main ingredient, LOVE. Enough Love to remain focused, listening, watching & in each moment stop my mind from wandering, tell myself “don’t walk away Renee’ ” and get distracted by other stuff. You want to walk in The Way of Jesus and as He says in Matthew 5:48 “be ye perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect“. (no this is not the same perfect that mankind has in his imagination) Then Read on in Matt.7:13-14: “enter in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction (an egg forgotten and then becomes an overcooked egg) and many there will be to go in that gate. But, strait is the gate, and narrow is the Way, which leads unto life, and few there will be that find it” Why is this? The narrow way runs in between extremism and doing nothing. It’s like extreme cooking, good cooking, or just ok cooking. We want to be a “good” cook – to far either way the others ways 9 times out of 10 only create “defeat, division, or worse Pride”. And because most of us want instant gratification, are selfish, and not wanting to sacrifice the TIME & attention to have “all your heart really desires (which is Love“) the narrow road is the one where you will Succeed and find the Best Master Chef & the best recipes for your life. Should you Choose to become a “perfect egg” stick Close, Focus, mediatate on His teachings & He will show you “best Way” to cook the perfect egg in You.

FYI: Always remember the Most important ingredients of the recipe: Live & Love God with all your heart, mind, and soul then love your neighbor as yourself” In this all the ingredients will be fullfilled and you too can & will become “the a perfect egg He created you to BE”.

Oh, don’t forget while fixing your egg: you can talk with the Lord & thank Him for creating chickens or eggs (not sure which came 1st & have decided to leave that as one of God’s mysteries. LOL), thank Him for the designer of my “little red pot”, my job that pays for the food & the home He led me to, in which to make such a tasty breakfast.


Fiscal Responsibility – It’s never too Late!

Greetings! Many of us spend much of our life in the excuses of ” I missed the boat” because of xyz. As Wayne Dyer says, Excuses be Gone! Yep, no matter your age, It’s Never to Late to take Fiscal responsibility. What is Fiscal Responsibility? It is Not just monetary respsonsibility and it IS a crucial requirement for our stability in Daily Living. Which is the key to my Mission statement, the stability found in The Way of His Word.

If you have responsibility for something or someone or something, it is your service or duty to deal with them and to make good “choices” relating to them. In the world Fiscal is referred to as something that relates to government money or public money, & taxes OR simply put: fiscal responsibility is the act of creating, optimizing and maintaining a balanced budget. Has it ever occured to in order to do that you Must work with God in creating, optimizing, and maintaining balance in your Life and relationships 1st. I can testify until you do, you will not balance your budget? That said, do you see how the excuse of, “I missed the boat” is a lie of the father of all lies?  I spent Years making excuses of how I missed the boat on this or that financially because I was low income and continuously in debt just to survive. And I believed these words therefore, keeping myself down. “as a woman thinketh so is she”. I “claimed” I lived on a tight budget working 2 jobs most of my life. Truth is, I also spent alot of time and money trying to keep up with societies idea of  “living”. In doing so, this can and often will carry you Far away from fiscal responsibility not only in your finances but, fiscal responsibility in your walk of Love with God, famly, self, and your neighbor. Fiscal responsibility and a balanced budget Begins in the Way of His Word “which works when you work it!”  It begins in the beginning, you are created in His Image and given authority with your “choices” in life. Choose to follow Him and you will receive the Holy kiss of His spirit of Love  which provides the tools, no matter your age, for Transformation & Restoration for you to Be Reborn. In the Way of the Messiah we become One in the creating, optimizing, and maintaining balance of our lives now, in each moment. Letting go of the lies, sins, & ways of the world. How do I know it works? I tested out the world’s ways and His ways. And trust me I tested both sides of the fence, the hard way. The world’s ways got me in a mess and deep in debt, so deep I could barely see the light to The Way out. But, He never let me go and Finally like the song says, I chose Jesus saying, “Jesus take the wheel and show me The Way.”  It wasn’t a free ride, or smooth all the way but, it was full of Mercy and Grace. He has shown Me how if I would just submit and be obedient,using ALL the tools given from beginning to end, to “work” His word, the road will Smooth out and I CAN live out His promises of Fiscal Responsibility. I was shown ALL my weak spots: 1. Abusing His Grace. His Love, Mercy, Forgiveness. I learned GRACE is not given for me to continue in my excuses and sin. It is not given for me to abuse by choosing the idols in the world then come back begging His forgiveness & help when the world let’s me down. 2. Abuse of His provisions. He was freely providing provisions, planting seeds in my life for me to cultivate so they would bear more fruit in my life. I cultivated them on Low levels, enough to get by but, I also abused at least 40% of His provisions trying to provide “worldly stuff” like designer jeans, a ridiculous amount of clothes, eating out to often (which for years included the expense of drinking/pot/cigarettes) when cooking at home & Leaving the addictive stuff alone would have been more cost effective, not to mention healthier in every way. In other words, Not listening, having no patience, not following all the guidance given only left me drowning in debt and sorrows & kept me from the abundance of His promises. Promises that “IF” we are good stewards will reap a harvest for you and enough to share. 3. Abuse of my temple. (my body)  Abuse in my eating habits, sexual habits, overloaded stress, and lack of consistent excercise all created poverty within and without. I didn’t want to listen to all the knowledge that kept knocking at my door. Main culprit: I didn’t want to commit to doing what “I” needed to do to have what I said I wanted. I was robbing myself, my family, and Go. Ellen G White addresses this so well in her book “Councels on Diet & Foods” and like she says, “Wherever the Truth is Proclaimed, instructions should be given in the preparation of healthful foods.” pg 273. (I am not promoting 7th day Adventist religion, your walk with God is between you & God) Yes, my posts are Faith based in the food of the Word God, which simply put is following the the 1 & 2nd most important commandments Love & seek God with all your heart, mind, and soul and love your neighbor as Yourself. This includes foods literally in your daily living. Facts are 7th day Adventist healthy lifestyle works and it is All founded in the Way of our Creator and His Way. And I have learned I don’t need to try to re-invent the wheel when in my seeking I am shown Truths and it is Truth: Regular eating of both spiritual and physical foods have a major effect on All aspects of your daily Life. Eating junk or skipping meals will take their toll. Here are a couple of sites, if you choose to check them out, that will enlighten you and aid you, If you choose to stop making excuses, & begin your journey to fiscal responsibility. I did & now 4 years later, I am Out of Debt, living in a healthy environment, stress is minimul as His Word shows me the way Thru if it does raise it’s head, and Love is more bountiful daily.

My prayer for you is as my friend Kariamu says, that you “Choose Good Things” & reap the harvest thereof.  Shalom

But are you listening?

Greetings & Happy New Year! I’ve kicked mine off with a 40 day fast and no not entirely from food. Only certain foods. 🙂 and media. The foods are things full of sugar, Nope! Cheese, yes still battling my cheese addiction but, it is much better. I am confident by the end of my fast, I will no longer hear cheese calling me daily. LOL I have cut my coffee down to 4-5 oz a day and No Soap Operas! That one was rough the first 7 days however, I replaced them with His Good News and nothing but, healthy, fun, positive movies. Wow! what a difference that has made in my daily life. Praise God! Once a week I do listen to 30 minutes of Nora O’Donnel news or 30 mins of the local news on CBS.. just to stay a little informed on what is going on in the world. I started this fast because it is my heart’s desire to walk with God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit in the fullness of The Way of Christ and that just can’t happen if I am doing all the talking and not listening when they speak to me. For some time I’ve had a lot of loud and clear signs, messages, and Pressing of spirit about honoring my temple and loving myself. That means not just feeding my spiritual life but, feeding my mind and body healthy things too. I’ve made excuses of I’m not in awful shape and I eat pretty healthy. However, one day recently I stood in front of the mirror and really looked at myself. All I could say was, “Augh, I am so out of shape” That took me to pray and this time really confess &repent of my sin of neglect and not listening. Ya know, true repentance only comes after confession if you pulls out the weeds you Know shouldn’t be in your garden. In other words, “change your ways”, seek and Listen to His guidance. Questions: 1. are you talking to God everyday? 2. Are you seeking and listening to what He has to say? 3. Do you making excuses when you know you have heard Him say, “that’s not the Way”? If question # 3 is something you do, I suggest you check out Wayne Dyer’s “Excuses Be Gone” on You Tube.

As far as diet and health 7th Day Adventist have tons of information on healthy living. They were even written about in the book the “Blue Zone” due to their healthy eating and living lifestyle extending their years on earth. The Blue Zones are areas where people live the longest. Yep you can google that too or there is a book called the Blue Zone. Another great book is by Ellen G. White called Councels on Diet & Foods it is great and covers everything! Including how foods can cure disease or create dis”ease” if you don’t get things in control. One thing she says right off is: “Wherever the Truth is proclaimed , instruction should be given in the preparation of healthful foods” This website can help with that: It has lots of short videos for quick healthy great foods. So no excuses of healthy eating takes to long. Smile

In His Word, the Father tells us not to be gluttons, over indulge, and to take care of our (His) temples. Yes, we are His temples. Think on that a bit. What kind of home are you asking Jesus to come in to? And remember He does not give us more than we can bear. He has not given us any instruction which cannot be obeyed by all. There is nothing He asks that is unreasonable. We just have to remember sins aren’t just things like murder, adultry, and such. Abusing ourselves & ignoring God in our lives is a sin too. But, all Praises, when we stop, repent, have Faith, Trust, and Listen, we can trust Jesus words, “Behold, thou art made whole, sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee”. (I’ve had that happen too, a worse thing come, I can be hard headed sometimes but, not so much these days, it is not worth it.) If you too have been hard headed, you can choose to change, Now! Ya know, He promises we are Well Able, when walking with Him, to be transformed back into the beautiful person He created us to Be. That does not mean the images in media like Miss Universe or Denzel Washington. Not necessarily anyway. Every person is created as a unique individual and how boring for everyone to be the same shapes, sizes, colors, and so on. So that is Not the goal nor what it means to “love yourself as He loves you or as you are called to love your neighbor.” Check out 1 Corinthians Chapter 13 for the Way of Love. Then go look in the mirror and ask, “Am I loving myself?” I have learned, if you don’t love yourself the way God loves you and don’t believe in who He says you are, it is next to impossible to truly love your family, friends, and your neighbors. Now go read 1 Corinthians 13 again and think on how you show love to God, yourself, family, friends, and your neighbors. Enough said there, I will let the Holy Spirit take over now. Hugs

I leave you with this: If you want Love, Peace, and Joy in your daily life you can have it just answer His Knock, ask Him in, all the way in, and follow Him in the Ways of His Love. I have, and while I could talk all day everyday about how much “following, listening, and sharing His Love has changed so much in my life, I won’t. But, I will be back in 2 weeks with another post to share. Why? Because it’s one of the ways I express my “Love your Neighbor day & I love you! “


What can I eat?

10 days! That said, today I am listing foods you Can eat during this Daniel’s fast. smile Note these foods are great for your mind, body, and your spirit year-round. I am praying as was said in the book of Daniel:

Daniel then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, 12 “Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.” 14 So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.15 At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. JUST Think how good you will look and feel after 28 days! To read the full story which includes the foods the King wanted to feed them read: Daniel 1: 1-15.

Foods to Eat:

Fruits & Vegetables: fresh, frozen, dried, juiced, and canned. These should be free of additional sweeteners using herbs to add any extra flavoring. One of my fav alternatives is herbs de provence:

Whole grains: amaranth, barley, brown rice, oats, quinoa, millet, whole wheat – Love them all!

Nuts & Seeds: almonds, cashews, macadamia, peanuts, pecans, pine nuts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, nut butters. You guessed it unsalted. Herbs can spice these up too.

Unleavened Bread: whole grain breads made without yeast, sugars, or preservatives = the website: The Biblical Nutritionist has good recipes for these.

Legumes: Canned or dried. black beans, black-eyed peas, cannellini beans, garbanzo beans (checkpeas) great northern beans, split peas, kidney beans, pinto beans, & lentils

Quality Oils: canola, coconut, flaxseed, grapeseed, olive, peanut, sesame. A plus on the coconut oil is it is good for your memory.

Beverages: distilled water, filtered water, spring water. Yep, Water the key to our survival. &

Ok, there you have your shopping list and some sites to lend a hand when creating your tasty dishes.

As we enter this Fast keep in mind, we were given authority on Earth to take care of ALL God created. That includes yourself. To fulfill our roles, we are to be good stewards with the Blessings given by the Father. For us to be a good steward we must feed not only our bodies good food but, our Minds and Hearts. The Good Food for that portion of the fast is, you guessed it, the GOOD News – The Word of God. Not only are we cleansing the body but, our goal is to “break up the fallow ground of the heart

Shalom! Enjoy!

The Beauty of Creation

DSC_1024  Fairfield Bay, Arkansas in the Ozark Mountains

Hidden up on Greer’s Ferry Lake is a beautiful little resort community if you need to get away from the stressors of the world. Yes, there is still Cell service and WiFi, if you feel you must have it. There are nice condos for rent & a hotel however, there are not malls, massive convenience stores, no Starbucks, things like that. There is a Dollar Store, a nice country grocery, a few restaurants, a country club, and golf course. And Lots of great hiking and water sports on a huge lake.

Spring and summer are coming and during our times of coping with Covid it’s a wonderful time to get back to the Beauty of God’s Creation. To enjoy family time or as single individual get away and relax. That is my grand plan for sure. This and many places on the East coast are now on my bucket list. I am a lover of waterfalls, so much so I moved to Niagara Falls, so my next few golden years are full of great expectations of camping all around the East Coast. In all areas of US there are awesome places & seems for most of us the ones closest to home are the places we haven’t been. I bet there are awesome places of nature near you too – google it & get out there and enjoy God’s creation. Remember don’t leave trash, take it with you. smile

Today I leave you with thoughts of listening to the awesome sounds of some Falls and in hopes you will get out and enjoy nature.

Transition of Care

In the Medical world Providers will use the term "Transition of Care" when taking on a new patient. It occured to me when Yeshua (Jesus) takes our hand we too begin a "Transition of Care". The word Transition means: passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another.  As I continue to read thru Genesis, I see a constant Transition of Care not only from Yah, (God) but, within the person themselves and in some cases within the family.  Then it hit me Life as a whole is really a Transition of Care.  Even the Earth has a transition of care not only in the change of seasons but, in the way We, mankind treat it. How we operate in Love creates a transition of care as well. All this made me look at myself and my surroundings which only brought questions: Am I transitioning or am I in a Rut? I determined I am and have been in a bit of a Rut. Even though, I am spending time in the Word, I am not allowing the Holy Spirit to bring forth the transitions I need. I've been hearing and even seeing where I need to begin the transition of care. And in some areas I take some steps but then like the ole saying says, I take two steps forward and one back into old habits. Which brought the next question, Why go to the Lord seeking help to "change - transition" into who my spirit is crying out to be if I am only going to half step my way along the road with Him? How can I share and be a light/testimony if I am dragging my feet? Why Am I not allowing myself Not to listen to the Provider and complete the necessary changes for my own transition of care? 

The Bible is full of those who have shared these same struggles and the Good News is: That Same Bible has the answers of how to clear out and go forth in the transition. How? Thru the Care found in all the Love within it. And it all begins with these verses:  Deuteronomy 6:5 - thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mightLuke: 10:27 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.  Simply Put when you transition to Loving God with all your heart & soul your mind goes thru a transition of care to walking in the same LOVE He has given you full of mercy, forgiveness, patience, and so on.  Which is why in turn it fulfills the law and word of the prophets. Why? You see, no longer is the Law a task master but, the Truth is revealed and out of Love you serve thru obedience & love begets Love. When you operate in spirit of Love you will automatically go forth in His transition of care for you and then and only then can you share with your neighbor. In Love there is no desire to kill, steal, commit adultery, kick God to the curb or do yourself harm. 

Now, how do you know if you are stuck in a Rut? Ask yourself are you unhappy or even miserable, stressed out, depressed, eating garbage trying to find comfort, grumbling and complaining to anyone who will listen? Is life feeling stagnant? If your answers are yes, lemme tell ya, you are in a Rut and Love is struggling to get unstuck and come forth. If we will but listen to the recommendations of our Provider, Jesus the transition of care Will begin and Love will break thru and carry you up and into all you can be.
One area I took two steps back was in what I am putting in my mouth, Food wise. 
That said, I'd like to share this website with some real tasty recipes for your transition of care, should you choose to join me.

Putting on Armor

Morning. There are times Life can take you into a slump. The last few days did just that to me. Just seemed each way I turned was a hard bump in the road. My emotions were swinging and hard as “I” tried to my attitude was not rising up to the situations. Well, not in a good way anyway. Then I got up this morning turned to Ephesians 6:5-18 and as I often say, ” God is on time all the time”!   Once again The Word giving me the Words that I needed to apply to get me Up and Over it all. So today, I share these verses, cause I suspect for some of you this Word could be right on time for you too. smile

Bondservants, (workers/employees) be obedient to those who are your masters (bosses) according to the flesh, with respect, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; 6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
9And you, masters (bosses), do the same things to them (employees), giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, then stand strong! 
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;           16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints
May you all have a Blessed Day!  I’m off to work to be the Best I can be with sincerity of heart and in FULL ARMOR reminding myself if I feel myself getting down, discouraged, my attitude shifting to a bad attitude… STOP!  The read or listen to these verses to see  what piece of my armor did I take off?  Put it back on and Praying always for guidance of how to handle whatever it is like my Lord Yeshua would do. Cause letting the devil get me down sure didn’t help one darn thing, it only took me further down in the sinking quick sands of darkness, my tongue rattled off words that I wish I could take back but instead all I could do was say, ” I’m Sorry for my bad attitude”  Praise God those I was complaining and babbling off to Love me and accepted my apology.
