EASY BIBLE STUDY

If you want a really easy Bible Study, go to eastgate-church.com and click online Bible Study.  Our Pastor Rick is commenting on each day's chapter reading with real down to earth information.  Today was Colossians 3:  Pastor wrote, "“Do not lie to one another, since you have (put off) the old man with his deeds, and have (put on) the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,”   ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:9 -10

Check Your Cupboard Count

By Es Westmoreland

Category: Housekeeping

Before I moved, I counted the kitchen cabinet doors and drawers.  I asked myself if the number of drawers and doors were enough?  Some large kitchens have only a few cabinets, making dish and pan storage a nightmare.  In like manner, there are some fairly small kitchens that have more than adequate storage.    It will be to your advantage to think ahead as to whether you need a larger dining room, more bedrooms, etc.  Even measure the rooms in your current house...

I DON'T THINK THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE IT!

There are life lessons every day.  Just look at these bananas.  They seem to be too far gone to be of any good, but they make great banana bread.  Sometimes, you might feel too far gone to be of any good, but the best is just about to happen.  Receiving Jesus into your life changes everything.  The words of this wonderful song says it best.  "Something wonderful, something good.  All my confusion, He understood.  All I had to offer Him was brokenness  and strife, but He made some...

GREATEST MOVIE EVER!

By Es Westmoreland
Aug 17, 2018
Category: Christianity

They said it was such a great movie - the best ever seen, so you decided to take a chance and see it not knowing anything about it.  The car wouldn't start, the traffic was heavy and the movie had already started when you got there.  It really was a good movie, but seemed pointless.  Little did you know  the first minute set the stage for an incredible story.  So it is with Eternity.  We have all arrived late and all of the talk about Jesus and John 3:16 seems nice, but not necessary.  We...

Summer Bills

By Es Westmoreland
Jul 05, 2018
Category: Finances
Don't forget about paying your bills while on vacation.  The simplest way that I have found is to make a copy of the bill the month before - before I pay it - and then you have the account number and address to mail it.  Pay an estimated amount to cover and they will adjust the next bill.  You can do it ahead of time and mail from wherever at the right time.  Enjoy your vacation in peace.

PRAYER FOR YOUR CHILDREN

Category: Family

I will be printing excerpts from my book, "RAISING ROYALTY", and want to start with this.  Children can receive JESUS as early as three (maybe before.)  When they give their heart and life to Him, He will never leave nor forsake them (Hebrews 13:5.)  PRAYER

 

Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I ask that you show me how to raise the children that you have given me whether born in, adopted, fostered, or have come under my authority... Continue reading

SAFETY FIRST!

By Es Westmoreland
Apr 18, 2018
Category: travel
When Shopping and traveling escalators and "people movers" make going up and down staircases.  Many people approach escalators very gingerly, stick a toe on (like checking water) and lose their balance.  I finally figured out that if I place all of my weight on the forward foot when getting on that I don't lose my balance (or do the splits.)     Continue reading

SHOPPING NAVIGATION

Mar 29, 2018
Category: Safety
Another decision I made for shopping is that I map out my stops.  I start on the right and stay.  After the last stop on the right, I turn the car around and return doing  everything on the right.  Sometimes it takes some special planning to safely reverse, but it keeps me from crossing traffic.   Continue reading

Compulsary disorder?

I love my HEB grocery store, but after many trips I still had to double back to find something.  I got used to the lay of the store and so, I took my grocery list and numbered it.  Produce came first so it was marked #1,  Then the bakery, #2.  Lunch meat, fresh meat of course became #3 and so on.  I could rewrite the list, but I don't.  I just do all of the #1s then 2s, etc.  It is so much easier and faster.  What is your #1?

During her adult years, Es Westmoreland has taken many financial classes, gone to seminars, and read many books to try to get an understanding of how money works.  She has read the Bible many times and has become familiar with God’s promises and his desire for us to prosper.  Es became aware that some people do not save, because they either do not understand compound interest, or do not think they have any extra money to save––not realizing that even five dollars a mont...

DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN?

Feb 26, 2018
Category: Family

Here are suggestions for raising children.  Over a ten-year period, we had four children.  Early on, we noticed that none of those little bundles of joy came with an instruction manual on how to raise them to maturity.  Each of the children presented different challenges in not only getting them into this world, but also through the stages of childhood, teenage, college, early adulthood and life to this day.  We found that our roles changed over time from parent to advisor, if asked.  Maybe you think you "raised" you...

BEST CORNBREAD I'VE FOUND!

Over the years, I have tried lots of recipes for cornbread - even made my own - but was never really satisfied.  I write off recipes wherever I find them and usually don't know where I got them.  I have an organized recipe box that I refer to consistently.  So I said that to say this:  This is the best cornbread recipe and works for me.  Your grandma's recipe may be even better - if so, post it too.

2017 had it's ups and downs. 2018 will also have ups and downs. It's most important to keep the "main thing" the main thing. Always put God #1 in all of your life. He will show you what to do by His word, The Bible. Get a reading plan even if it just one verse a day. You will find that He is smarter than anything you could come up with. God bless you.

Overloaded Sweet Tooth

So many wonderful desserts at Christmas:  Candy, cakes, cookies (yum), fruitcake (yes, I like fruitcake) and many other dainties shared during the holidays.  Most have been enjoyed, but there are wonderful leftovers.  Two choices:  Eat them until they are gone, or preserve them to be enjoyed later.  My freezer is one of my best friends.  I portion each one and put in a ziptop bag and put them all in the freezer in my "dessert stash."  Great for week night desserts or coffee break or lunches.  It works for...
