the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and
Praise Him with the timbrel
and dance;
Praise Him with stringed
instruments and flutes!
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with high sounding

'Unpeeled apples are high in pectin, a special form of fiber that has been shown to lower cholesterol levels, bind and eliminate toxins from the GI tract, and help relieve constipation . Fresh apples contain phytonutrients including ellagic acid, which, as noted previously, possesses significant anticancer properties. Those who eat apples regularly have been shown to have far fewer colds and upper respiratory infections than those who do not. The old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away", has a great deal of medicinal truth to it!
Excerpt from "WHAT WOULD JESUS EAT?"
by Don Colbert, M.D.

"Oh sing to the Lord a new song!
For He has done marvelous things;
His right hand and His holy arm
have gained Him the victory."
Psalm 98:1

We are in a society of information
overload..some experts say 'we get
more information in 72 hours than our parents
received in a month, and most people
do not have the skills to deal
with it. They let new things in, but don't
get rid of old information they wanted to act on.'

"But you, Daniel, shut up the
words, and seal the book until
the time of the end; many shall
run to and fro, and knowledge
shall increase."
Daniel 12:4

Choisir means to choose.
Before we make any decisions
it is wise to ask the Lord
first. He knows the future
and what is always best for us.

but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

Wangaratta Jazz Festival

I forgot to write how my macarons
turned out. Well they were tiny.
I did not pipe enough mixture for
each one. Good for a mini mouse tea party!
And I think they are a little
overrated or that could just be my cooking.

Last week we dined at the Mt Dandenong
Hotel and enjoyed a delicious meal in front of a large open fire.It was a monday night and there were quite a few people in the hotel.
We were invited to listen to a choir in another room.
We were fortunate to enjoy this local choir who sang some gospel songs, some Beach Boys, some Italian love songs etc etc.. How lovely!

Ranges at Olinda

This is my favorite place in the
Dandenongs. It is a treat to enjoy
a coffee in this modern and attractive
cafe and sit in front of the open fire
just enjoying the view across the road,
and watching people walk by
or reading the day's newspaper.

"A word fitly spoken
is like apples of gold
In settings of silver.
Like an earring of gold
and an ornament of fine gold
Is a wise reprover to an
obedient ear."
