Reverend Al hates the Jews, that is clear
Watch out; race-baiting Jesse is near
A black racist is Spike
Fascists I do not like
And now Sterling takes it in the rear
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1 c. pecan pieces
2 sticks butter (melt in oven or on stove. Do not microwave)
Lightly grease (or Pam) one 14 inch pizza pan. Hand pat in bottom (press in), leave lip up around sides. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Set aside, let it cool.
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 c. confectioners' sugar
1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
Mix well. Spread over cold crust.
Slice strawberries in half. Arrange on top of second layer. Chill and enjoy.
That sounds ABSOLUTELY Delicious!
Is there any way to make it sugar-free?
Good morning, DFU!
Thank you for the great poem ... and oh so true.
Last night on Watters World, he was in Harlam asking about Sterling and racism. Most of the people in Harlam do not trust the NAACP. It was so good to see so many black people saying the NAACP is not doing anything for the average black man.
Hey .... Happy May 1st.
I forgot to give MamaBear credit for the Strawberry Graphic.
Ya did great as usual, Lori. Thank you!
I eaten this many times but hate to admit than I have never made it.
I’m not sure about sugar-free. I would mix a small amt of cream cheese, cool whip and Splenda and chill to see if it sets up.
BTW ... it is wonderful. I got the recipe from a friend who always brought it to spring time gathering.
I’m thankful that strawberries are ripe; I may try it next week.
Have a Thankful Thursday.
Those beautiful Strawberries look sweet enough to compensate for the lack of sugar. Splenda might work too! :-)
Read: Matthew 8:1-4
Molly wanted her dads help, but she was afraid to ask. She knew that when he was working on his computer, he didnt want to be interrupted. He might get upset at me, she thought, so she didnt ask him.
We need not have such fears when we come to Jesus. In Matthew 8:1-4, we read about a leper who didnt hesitate to interrupt Jesus with his needs. His disease made him desperatehe had been ostracized from society and was in emotional distress. Jesus was busy with great multitudes, but the leper made his way through the crowd to talk with Jesus.
Matthews gospel says that the leper came and worshiped Him (v.2). He approached Jesus in worship, with trust in His power, and with humility, acknowledging that the choice to help belonged to Jesus. He said, Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean (v.2). In compassion, Jesus touched him (leprosy had made him untouchable by the standards of Jewish law), and he was cleansed immediately.
Like the leper, we dont need to hesitate to approach Jesus with our desire for His help. As we go to Him in humility and worship, we can trust that He will make the best choices for us.
Good Morning Amy and everyone at Amy’s Place!
I’ve been absent for a while. Bad news and good news. My dog Bart developed aggressive bone cancer 5 weeks ago and we had to euthanize him a week ago. Good news, we adopted an 8 month old puppy (he’s huge) named Riley. He is very active and is keeping me extra busy.
I still check in at Amy’s everyday but haven’t posted lately.
Here are pictures of my little puppy.
Oh Yum..That sounds so delicious.
Thank you for our May thread, Amy
I’ve beeen missing you.
Riley is a beautiful dog! I am so sorry you lost Bart. I know it’s hard to lose a beloved pet..
Happy about your new pup..Hide the shoes!
Awww..I love that horse!
Spring has sprung!
88 degrees here. :-)

Thanks for re-posting ODB, Rus.
I forgot to post the new thread last night. Too many things going on. :)
Wishing you a Thankful Thursday.
Good morning, TCP. Happy Thankful Thursday.
I’m so sorry to hear that you lost Bart but am thankful that you found and adopted Riley. He is adorable.
I had the MacNeice poem on a cassette of poets reading their works. "Fern Hill" read by Dylan Thomas is also impressive.
Good morning, Meg.
I love this graphic; it is perfect for May 1st. Thank you.
Wishing you a Thankful First day of May Thursday.
We had cool weather earlier but it is getting near record breaking temps again. A 96 expected today and 95 for tomorrow. Too darn hot.
That’s 20 degrees of separation!
It would seem that I am more degrees away than Kevin Bacon is!
I’m happy you enjoyed my May Queen.
We’ll be in the 90s by the weekend so I am so thankful for this interlude.
It’s a very Thankful Thursday here.
No problem at all Amy!
Read: Ezra 9:5-9
The lone tree in the field across from my office remained a mystery. Acres of trees had been cut down so the farmer could grow corn. But one tree remained standing, its branches reaching up and spreading out. The mystery was solved when I learned the tree was spared for a purpose. Farmers long ago traditionally left one tree standing so that they and their animals would have a cool place to rest when the hot summer sun was beating down.
At times we find that we alone have survived something, and we dont know why. Soldiers coming home from combat and patients whove survived a life-threatening illness struggle to know why they survived when others did not.
The Old Testament speaks of a remnant of Israelites whom God spared when the nation was sent into exile. The remnant preserved Gods law and later rebuilt the temple (Ezra 9:9). The apostle Paul referred to himself as part of the remnant of God (Rom. 11:1,5). He was spared to become Gods messenger to Gentiles (v.13).
If we stand where others have fallen, its to raise our hands to heaven in praise and to spread our arms as shade for the weary. The Lord enables us to be a tree of rest for others.
Beautiful! Happy Friday!
Good Morning, Amy!
A Blessed Friday to You!
Oooooo..Where can I get me a DRESS like that!
Have a Blessed Friday, MEG!
Wonderful Red Friday Graphic, Meg.
Thank you for remembering our troops with such a beautiful graphic.
Always a pleassure to honor our troops, Amy.
I found that searching for red dresses for Friday...Probably a designer’s dress.
Thank you, ML..Friday blessings to you.
It IS beautiful, but not really practical for Harley Riding. LOL!
Thank you for this beautiful lesson, Rus. Amen
Beautiful!! I have a red shirt on! :)
Hi LUV W!
Hide the shoes! That is so funny.
Most puppies we’ve had ruin one shoe, making the other perfect one useless.
So far this little monster has been chewing the many dog toys we’ve accumulated in the last 25 years.
He especially loves one that is shaped like a bone but is made of tennis ball material and squeaks loudly when he chews on it.
Hi, there! (((hugs)))
You have fun plans for the weekend?
Lessons, Church, and another recital!
And I might sneak in a Harley ride.
Hope you get that ride! What destination sounds fun?
How about key largo?
Thank you ..and thank you for our theme song.
Goodnight, Dear FRiends, and God Bless.
Read: Psalm 107:1-16
Following the death of computer pioneer Steve Jobs in 2011, more than one million people from around the world posted tributes to him online. The common theme was how Jobs had changed their lives. They said they lived differently because of his creative innovations, and they wanted to express their appreciation and their sorrow. The screen of one tablet computer said in large letters: iSad.
Gratitude fuels expression, which is exactly what Psalm 107 describes: Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy (v.2). The theme of this psalm is people in great trouble who were delivered by the Lord. Some were homeless and in need (vv.4-5); some had rebelled against Gods Word (vv.10-11); others were at their wits end when they cried out to God (vv.26-27). All were rescued by God. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! (vv.8,15,21,31).
When we consider the greatness of Gods love, His grace in sending Jesus Christ to die for us and rise again, and what He has delivered us from, we cannot keep from praising Him and wanting to tell others how He changed our lives!
