Let Us With A Gladsome Mind By John Milton

Hymnal Devotional: Page

Milton, John, was born in London, Dec. 9, 1608, and died there Nov. 8, 1674. His poetical excellences and his literary fame are matters apart from hymnology, and are fully dealt with in numerous memoirs. His influence on English hymn-writing has been very slight, his 19 versions of various Psalms having lain for the most part unused by hymnal compilers. The dates of his paraphrases are:— Ps. cxiv. and cxxxvi., 1623, when he was 15 years of ago. These were given in his Poems in English and Latin 1645. Ps. lxxx.-lxxxviii., written in 1648, and published as Nine Psalmes done into Metre, 1645. Ps. i., 1653; ii., “Done August 8, 1653;” iii., Aug. 9, 1653; iv. Aug. 10, 1653; v., Aug. 12, 1653; vi., Aug. 13, 1653; vii.Aug. 14, 1653; viii…

Wednesday War Room Bible Study Begins!!

Hey Sweet Friends,

Praying all are doing well as we enter into this Fall season.

We are finally getting a break from the serious Summer heat into serious rain and Fall storms. But as these hit us hard, it has been a time of prayer. And as we begin our Bible study based off the movies War Room…what better than to go through a season of focused prayer.

Personally, I have had some things happening that require serious prayer as well. Why is it when these things are scheduled, the Lord tends to teach me through current events as well!!  I love how God works all for His purpose and His plans!! Our God meets us right where we are in life for sure!! 🙂

What a GREAT God we serve!!

We have introduced the study this past Wednesday September 9, 2020 and set out a time table as well as proposed ideas of projects. And as soon as we began preparing for this study…the Lord began showing me endless other options for sequential studies!! Isn’t God good!! He is teaching me patience as each study after is quite exciting!!!

So, we begin. And we will finish this study before Christmas 2020. And January 6, 2021 we will begin our next study. Be looking for the next Bible study information after Thanksgiving 2020. 

If you are just joining…you are doing fine. The videos will always be up on the JosephinesDesigns.com.

So begin with obtaining the War Room Movie and Bible study.

As we go through this study, we will build a War Binder/Prayer Journal and we will also enjoy Bible Journaling through out the study in a journal, memorydex cards and Bible.

Do not worry if you miss a week, the videos are up on YT and you can catch up anytime. Also if you are watching in real time…please let’s talk and interact!! Leave comments and share what God is doing in your life!! We all grow by each other’s encouragements!!

Let us all be focused on the Word and knowing Him better through prayer and Bible study,

#SSBJC2020: Camp S’mores Fun

Hey Campers,

Here a great recipe for the foundation of the S’mores!!!

Hugs and prayers….k 🙂

Graham Crackers

HOW TO MAKE GRAHAM CRACKERS by King Arthur Flour

Do you know why graham crackers are called graham crackers? Sylvester Graham, a minister who lived and preached in the first half of the 19th century, carried on a dietary crusade in favor of whole wheat flour, arguing that to separate the bran from the rest of the wheat berry was against the will of God. Thus whole wheat flour, or graham flour — flour milled from the whole wheat berry, rather than just the endosperm. And thus graham crackers — sweet, crisp crackers made from whole wheat flour.

PREP 15 mins

BAKE28 to 30 mins

TOTAL 2 hrs 3 mins

YIELD about 2 dozen graham crackers

Graham Crackers

Ingredients

NUTRITION INFORMATION

Instructions

  1. Combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg with the oil, honey, and 2 tablespoons milk. Stir this egg mixture into the dry ingredients until you have a fairly stiff dough, adding more milk if necessary. Knead the dough gently until smooth.
  3. Wrap the dough and chill it until firm, about 1 hour (or longer, if it’s more convenient).
  4. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  5. Divide the dough in half and, working with one piece at a time, roll the dough out about 1/16″ thick onto a piece of parchment paper.
  6. Transfer the rolled-out dough on the parchment paper to a baking sheet. Repeat with the second piece of dough.
  7. Brush both pieces of dough with milk then sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar, if desired.
  8. Bake the sheets of dough for 10 minutes, rotating the pans after 5 minutes.
  9. Remove pans from the oven, and use a rolling pizza wheel or sharp knife to cut the sheets of dough into 3″ x 2″ rectangles; don’t separate them, just cut them.
  10. Return the cut crackers to the oven, and continue to bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
  11. Turn off the oven, and open the oven door wide for 5 minutes. After the majority of the oven’s heat has dissipated, shut the oven door, and let it cool down for 20 minutes with the crackers inside; this will help them become as crisp as possible.
  12. Remove the crackers from the oven, transfer them to a cooling rack, and cool completely.
  13. Store the crackers, well-wrapped, at room temperature for up to a week; freeze for longer storage.

Tips from our Bakers

  • In testing and re-testing these crackers, we found that the thin, 1/16″ roll-out was essential to getting them perfectly crisp. Rolling the dough out on parchment paper is especially helpful for this reason.

Hey Campers!!!

Praying you finally were able to see the videos!! Wow….what a storm. And literally, once all finally uploaded….the storm passed. Humbling for sure. No matter what…our God reigns.

Our extra goodies from today’s camp:

Genesis 4:7 “If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door: and its desire is for you, but you must master it. “

The expression “bloom where you’re planted” means a person should take advantage of the opportunities they have in their life and be grateful for the present situation.

Thank you so much everyone!!! I pray your are encouraged…please be sure you share your thoughts in the comments on s’mores!!! 🙂 And send pics if you like and I will add them to the BibleJournalingCamp.com page!! And also add your project pics from today’s camp!!
