"We Gather Together"

We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing;
He chastens and hastens his will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing,
Sing praises to his name: He forgets not his own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining his kingdom divine;
So from the beginning the fight we were winning;
Thou, Lord, wast at our side, All glory be thine!

We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant,
And pray that thou still our defender wilt be.
Let thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!


A Thanksgiving Poem.

The tear another's tears bring forth,
The sigh which answers sigh,
The pulse that beats at others woes,
E'en though our own be nigh,

A balm to bathe the wounded heart
Where sorrow's hand hath lain,
The link divine from soul to soul
That makes us one in pain,

Sweet sympathy, benignant ray,
Light of the soul doth shine;
In it is human nature giving
A touch of the divine.

THE BEST Chocolate Cake EVER

1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 package Jello instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a VERY large bowl (4 qt), mix together everything except chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into cake pan of choice (I normally use two 9-inch pie pans). For cooking time, I use the cooking times on the back of the devil’s food cake box as a guide and usually add 10 mins to whatever it says. Then I do the toothpick check, and if it’s not done, I check on it every 5 mins after that. :) It usually takes around 45 mins for two, 9-inch pie pans.

Buttercream Frosting

1 cup shortening (crisco)
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening until fluffy. Add sugar and continue creaming until well blended. Add salt, vanilla, and whipping cream. Blend on low speed until moistened. Beat at high speed until frosting is fluffy.

Cherry Crisp

* 6 c pitted cherries (I use frozen)
* 1 T cornstarch
* 2 T sugar
* 1/2 c flour
* 1/2 c oats
* 1/3 c sliced almonds
* 1 c brown sugar
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1 tsp cinnamon
* 1/3 c butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Toss the cherries with cornstarch and sugar in a baking dish (you can use any size, a smaller one will give you a thicker topping - I use 9 x 13 inch).

Mix remaining dry ingredients in a small bowl, and add butter using your fingers to make coarse crumbs (I like to press some of the topping into larger clumps).

Bake for 45 - 55 minutes, until crumble is golden brown, and filling is thick and bubbling over the topping.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper.

Using a mixer, beat the butter until smooth. Beat in the white and brown sugars, a little at a time, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs 1 at a time, then mix in the vanilla and pumpkin puree. It’ll look really funky at this point but have faith.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Slowly beat the flour mixture into the batter in thirds. Stir in the chips. Scoop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 15 to 20 minutes (17 minutes works about perfectly for me), or until the cookies are browned around the edges. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and let them rest for two minutes. Take the cookies off with a spatula and cool them on wire racks

Eternal Feelings

So many years with you and I want to let you know how much I love you I cant see myself with no one else and I hope you know no matter what I will be there for you because you have prove to me that we could survive anywhere But in my heart I know I could do better no matter what happens my head is clear in what I want I know we have been going through so much and I'm cleared from the fear of being alone and having someone strong by my side I don't want to cry because I know I'm strong and I want to prove to you as well I could do this no matter what comes thrown our way I care so much for and I cant see myself with out you I cant bare the fact that we could be a part and you make me feel so good and this is where I want to be next to you I think you were sent to me from heaven and my angel from above to help me through all this and together we going to go far As long as I know your not afraid to fly with me I think I was waiting for you for years and I'm glad we are going through this journey together and lets relax and come with me to eternity It would hurt me to let go of you

Heard a Song and got inspire

Before I go into writing what I'm about to say I cant forget how you always said no one would want me There is many times you made me cry and now I can't shed a tear anymore because I believed in you and I wouldn't think the person I love would ever say something crazy like that to me because I know I'm a good women but I want to say thank you because the pain you made me go through only made me stronger and I want to thank you for this It was a living hell but I'm glad I went through all this pain because I'm a superwomen now thanks to you and I want girls out there to know its hard to be with someone that puts you down but you could overcome anything you want to do in this life I know its hard to end something you think is perfect but we have to go inside our core and rip it out ourselves and be brave I wouldn't think no one would want me or ask myself is it me or what the hell is wrong with me but I know now its wasn't me its was that person feeling like crap about themselves and was trying to make me feel like a pea... I wonder why this person said this... I could only wonder and question myself over and over. But the past is the past.
