Ileum Doneodeu Psalm for 8.16.2020

Be still and know
That every word you speak is true
That every promise you make
Will always lead me back to you

Like shards of broken glass
I was lost and confused
You brought me back
Resurrected me thru the power of you

With every promise
At each and every turn
Draws me closer
To the symphony that is you

I look to the heavens
With arms wide open
I can see a million stars
And ask which one belongs to you

I will break down these walls
The chains that keep me from being free
I will answer your calls
Like the waters of the sea

With every promise
At each and every turn
The promise of your love
Is as pure as two white doves

Be still and know
That every word you speak is true
That every promise you make
Will always lead me back to you

Like branches of the olive tree
You lay it down for all the w...

The Secret is Nutmeg

Recently found a 1953 “Joy of Cooking” cookbook. Never knew how the strength of vinegar has changed in acidity. Also ran across a casserole recipe which turned out really well. Lately I’ve been using small iron skillets for individual servings. Covid compliant for sure. So for squash casserole I used three pounds of squash sliced fairly thin and cooked till not quite thorough. Patted squash dry on paper towels and set aside. In a large skillets melted on medium high 4 tablespoons of butter and sauteed a small yellow onion. Added back squash with onions, mixed in two beaten slightly eggs and 1/4 cup of mayonnaise, 2.5 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 cup of shredded cheddar. Mixing all added last teaspoon of secret ingredient in title...

Ileum Doneoldeu Psalm for 7.30.2020

Only you can see the pain
Tears coming down like the rain
How did it get here
There is nothing left to gain

You stood by me in the darkest of times
I would cross rivers to get to you
No mountain could stand in my way
There is so much I want to say, Lord

Take it from me
Wash me clean
And restore my heart

Take it from me
Let me be seen
Let my spirit run free

You are my destiny
You provide hope
That darkness will not win
You forgive me of my sins

I surrender to you
Let the rivers run wild
As I wander thru the valley
I choose the path that leads me to you, Lord

Take it from me
Wash me clean
Restore my heart

Take it from me
Let me be seen
Let my spirit run free

Your truth brought me back to life
Even when words cut deep like a knife
The victory is knowing you see it all
You know the motive of m...

Ileum Doneoldeu Psalm for 7.25.2020

In the quiet of the moment
I can hear your whispers in the wind
Leading me on this journey
I will follow your footprints in the sand

I will learn from all mistakes
Put my faith in the palm of your hand
I never walk alone
For you are with me everywhere

There is no darkness that can overtake me
For your light shines so bright it will never flee
With angels all around
Planting my feet on solid ground

No words can defeat me
I am a Lion in your den
For as long as I can see
You forgive me of all my sins

Return, Return
There is no war left to win
I will cast away all doubt
I am a Lion in your den
In victory I will shout

Proclaim you as my King
Your the song within my heart
The melody I long to sing

Return, Return
There is no war left to win
I will cast away all doubt
I am a Lion in your den

Cooking in Chincoteague

Atlantic Road to Chincoteague Island, Virginia is a 13 mile scenic backroad and a beautiful drive through cornfields and country scenery. It follows the coastline and ultimately drops you into a three way stop right in front of a NSA facility. Turning east on Chincoteague road you travel across an elevated roadway on to a long bridge. Nothing like the Cheasapeake Bay Bridge which coming north you traverse thirteen miles of a tunnel, bridge, tunnel, bridge jaunt after forking over $10 or $20 if you are pulling a boat or trailer, etc. So you get to the redlight in Chincoteague, turning right takes you along the bay and thru town. Going straight takes you to the beach on the Atlantic Ocean entering a park offering trails and scenery and of course, the beach...

Ileum Doneoldeu Psalm for 7.24.2020

Who Among You is Chosen

I have cried a thousand tears
That you have collected after all these years
To live a life with no more fears

With every promise
Through every praise

Hallelujah, better days
Who Among You is Chosen

Can you hear me when I pray
I look to you in every way
To live free each blessed day

With every battle
Through every hurt
Only strengthens me in you my mighty Lord

Hallelujah, this much remains

So I ask who among you is chosen
For His grace will bring you joy
May His love give you hope

With every prayer
Through every blessing

Hallelujah, rejoice

Ileum Doneoldeu Psalm for 7.22.2020

Take me to the river Jordan
So that I may rest my weary head
Let the waters wash over me
Take my sins out to sea
How I long to be in His presence
My savior come and rescue me
Living in a world consumed with chaos
My Lord proclaims I am redeemed
He gives strength to the weak and defenseless
And grace for all eternity
Take me to the highest mountain
So I might hear the mighty trumpet sound
Oh Lord break these chains that keep me bound
The only truth lies in your word
Restore my heart and make my spirit soar
It is then I will find true peace
For my God you are the king
So He says I am redeemed…
I am redeemed
