SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
Know this... I come from a Bible-toting, scripture shouting, tee-totaling family.  Just before Easter, my 95 pound grandmother was told by her doctor her bones were thinning and she should drink 1/2 beer daily to strengthen them.   You can imagine her shock. He assured her it was for medicinal purposes only and He would know it was only to keep her healthy so she could continue her good works for the Lord.  But my grandmother wanted to discuss it with her family and the Easter gathering was coming up which would be the perfect time.    It was discussed over and over under the big Oak tree down by the crick.  (Not a type-o... everyone in my family called a creek a crick.   I only found out the difference when I began to travel with my husband to other parts of the USA when he was in the Air Force)    The decision was that she should take her doctor's advice and drink 1/2 beer each day for her bones.   

At first she didn't like her beer at all.  She held her nose to get it down... when she died many years later, she was up to 1 1/2 beers daily... smile.

Soak blueberries, beets or dill seeds in hot water and add hot vinegar to set blue, red or gold tones.

From Bottomline Publications
If you have a tool (such as a pair of scissors, pliers or tweezers) that is so rusty that you're ready to throw it away, we are here to offer a mercy plea. Give your rusty tools another chance! Here's what you do…
Get a container—most tools will be able to stand in a wide-mouth jar—and fill it with apple cider vinegar. Put the rusty tool in, and let it soak overnight. The next day, wipe the tool completely dry with a clean rag (and brush it with an old toothbrush if you need to). Apply some light machine oil to any moving parts, if necessary. Your tool should be rust-free and usable again.

1 bag popped white popcorn

1 bag of festive M&M’s
2 cups of Chex cereal
1 container of sprinkles

Spread pretzels , popcorn and Chex on an foil covered baking sheet and drizzle white chocolate over the mixture ... Gently stir to coat evenly ... Add sprinkles but don’t stir it anymore or the sprinkles will be coated with chocolate and turn white ... Let harden on cookie sheets and then break apart and add M&M’s to the finished mixture ...
The ideas for packaging are endless, cute bags to give away as favors or just put it in a big bowl and it will be a hit !

Give me a sense of humor, Lord,

Q: How does the Easter bunny paint all the Easter eggs?
A: She hires Santa’s elves during off-season.

 
 


A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"
One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."





Husband’s Message (by mobile phone):

Honey,  I got hit by a car outside of the office.  Paula brought me to the Hospital. They have been making tests and taking X-rays. The blow to my head though very strong, will not have any serious or lasting injury. But, I have three broken ribs, a broken arm, a compound fracture in the left leg, and they may have to amputate the right foot.

Wife’s Response: Who is Paula?

 



A mother was teaching her 3-year-old the Lord's prayer. For several evenings at bedtime she repeated it after her mother. One night she said she was ready to solo. The mother listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer.
"Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some E-mail, Amen."

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp



'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12
