A couple of weeks ago, I went with some friends to beautiful Hocking Hills, Ohio. The first morning, I took a quiet walk by myself just to see the beauty and feel the peace. Later we took some hikes to view some of nature’s attractions.
On watercolor paper, I stamped a background with random ink pads. Then I punched holes in the watercolor paper with a needle. That enabled me to sew the beads onto the paper. Then I glued it onto the card and added the heart.
Never fear tho’ shadows dark around your path may fall;
Do not let your heart be troubled;
From His throne in heaven, God is watching one and all,
He will ever care for you.
Back of the clouds the sun is always shining,
After the storms your skies will all be blue;
God has prepared a rosy tinted lining,
Back of the clouds it’s waiting to shine thru.
Winter long is over and the spring has gone her way,
Often have the storm-clouds gathered,
But the rain has only made the blossoms look more gay
Given earth a brighter hue.
Keep the light of hope eternal dwelling in your heart,
Rest upon the Father’s promise,
And you’ll find that care and trouble quickly will depart,
Heaven’s peace will enter in.

Start with a 14-ounce package of extra-firm water-packed tofu.
Dump it into a colander that has rather small holes. I use my hand to squish it from a block into sort of a “cottage cheese” texture.
Then I press out the extra moisture by placing a bowl on top of the tofu and applying firm pressure.
Then it can be placed in a mixing bowl where you add the following:
- 1/2 teas. garlic salt
- 1-3 teas dried parsley flakes
- 1 T chicken style seasoning (I use McKays)
- 1 teas nutritional yeast flakes
- 1 teas onion powder
- 1/2 teas turmeric
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 2 stalks celery, diced
- mayo to taste
This is a very tasty spread that can be used as a sandwich filling, eaten with crackers, chips, or veggies.
