 Hello Ladies,

As I have a different computer and not familiar with including a printable newsletter, I'll invite you just to paste this newsletter on another page and print it out if you want a hard copy. It embodies some of the speech from the previous video, that is, the admonition to come out better on the other side of difficult times, than when you went in! 

Elect Lady



I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10

ABUND'ANT, adjective Plentiful; in great quantity; fully sufficient; as an abundant supply. In scripture, abounding; having in great quantity; overflowing with.

Don't wait for abundant living.

Don't wait for your life to get better. Don't wait for the world

to straighten up. Don't wait for politics to settle down.

Don't wait for others to cooperate or agree. 

You can come out of the other side of an unfortunate situation BETTER.

Many people have discovered the value of keeping a routine of “better” things to do

that help them progress in life and refine their character.

I suggest making appointments with yourself at home, to do the following:

Better knowledge – stretch your mind by learning something every day. These days information is available at our fingertips and there is no excuse to allow your mind to become stagnant.

Better Bible Knowledge – most people have full schedules and very little time for this but now it is possible to include it in your “appointments” at home.

Better prayer life – make an appointment for personal prayer three times a day.

Better physical fitness – stretch your muscles and get rid of stiffness and pain. There are many online videos with good instruction. If all you do is move your neck or your hands, it is a conscious exercise that has great benefits. Ladies have reported that simple stretches and movements give them more mental clarity.

Better communication – Write your own newsletter with a dip and a dab of things that you are interested in, including your new knowledge and your new activities

More Creative – Take an art class online and order your supplies. You will be so amazed at the results of this effort. An appointment during the week can do wonders for you. Many ladies say they just never had the time for art and if they did, art classes required travel or were late at night. This is no longer necessary and you can enjoy lessons from the comfort of your own dining table.

Better dressed – Every day is special in God's sight. It is a gift! Dressing your best and being clean and well groomed (including clean hair and fresh breath) gives you a real lift but not just for you: it can be an encouragement to others in the home.

Better Homes and Gardens – I have heard that many ladies are happy that they finally have time to concentrate on cleaning drawers, closets, storage boxes, and even redecorating. You can do this too and come out of the other side of these difficult times with a better home and garden. This makes you happy but gives a lift to every passer-by.

Better food preparation – join a cooking class online or look for cooking instruction videos.

There will never be a dull moment if you will follow one food preparation video and prepare something. Not interested in cooking? Try a tea time video which teaches how to make fancy sandwiches and simple treats without turning on the cook stove.

Here is a wonderful recipe sent by Roxy, who is a dear friend, from the blog “Living From Glory to Glory”. I tried it and it turned out right the first time. Be warned it makes a LOT so you might have to freeze some. I didn't use loaf pans so mine was in rectangle deep dish, and I cut it into squares.

Mmmm. Good

Spiced Pumpkin Bread

3 1/2 c. Flour

2 c. Sugar

2 tsp. Baking soda

2 tsp. Salt

2 tsp. Ground allspice

1 tsp. Baking powder

1 tsp. Nutmeg

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. Ground cloves

4 eggs

1 can (15 oz.) solid pumpkin

3/4 c. Canola oil (I use olive oil or butter)

2/3 c. Water

1/2 c. Chopped nuts, optional

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.

In another bowl, combine eggs, pumpkin, oil and water. Mix well.

Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour into 3 greased loaf pans. Sprinkle with nuts, if desired.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or
Until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

Cool for10 minutes before removing from pans.
