Deep Faith Monday Fire Series #42 Take The Daydream

It’s so remarkable how good HE is. How good HE provides for us.  Remarkable how HE alotts us the gift of daydreaming.  Take the daydream any time. We do it often, don’t we? We do. We do it while driving. Sometimes while cooking. Sometimes our minds venture off into some space mind adventure to escape the now. To escape the what is. To go to the what could be at times.  I love to daydream while taking day trips. And this Saturday was a much need R&R time with the hubs #bigkahuna. I needed time to get away from the normal weekend things.  No band camp or band activities so I was in the clear! Hallelujah! No kids to shuttle here or there like Dr. Seuss. I had this weekend planned and it happened. It more so happened!  HE has seen the work and time we put in so HE has provided really well.

Take the Daydream EK SFF.png

You & I don’t have to go on any staycation every weekend. You can daydream any time. You can do it from the comfort of your home.  Daydreaming is a way to rest, relax, and mind meditate. It allows the freedom of where you want to go or what is yet to be invited or revealed of such desires. It allows every what could be. Every desire to be felt and sensed. It allows a freedom of wandering. Not every one wandering is lost.  It’s a way to connect to you and above at the same time. It’s a way of taking a small day trip within the daydream.  It replenishes the soul somewhat.

You can take a day trip, a vacation, a weekend getaway, but it’s not necessary.  I just so needed a day home break since I work from home.  Home is my office and life. Other people have jobs they drive to and come back home and stay there all weekend.  That’s fine too. Remember I was an 8 to 5 gal too at one time. I spent 10 hours a week on just driving back and forth Monday thru Friday. Daydreaming at my job made me realize I was made for more and so are you my friend(s).

Podcast Episode 29 GOD KNOWING

Podcast 29 GOD Knowing

A few months ago, I kept hearing this one phrase Be Faithfully Driven. And so I did Podcast Episode 21 Be Faithfully Driven. And I’ve kept this going throughout my podcast even before I recorded Be Faithfully Driven.  I couldn’t do any of this without HIS help and guidance.  When I’m stuck at something, a new concept, idea, or a just learning something entirely foreign to me, I know that GOD has my back.  It’s not GOD willing because HE’s always willing.  It’s more of GOD KNOWING. I know HE knows everything but I’m now in the receiving end of not only asking, believing, & receiving.  I’m in the KNOW.  I’m in the Pray, Trust, and Wait. Pray, Know, and Wait zone.

Prayers For Everyone

Are you a prayer snob?  Do you only pray for your immediate and closest family and friend circle?  Do you only prayer when you or they have a request?  Are you finding yourself to be truly compassionate and not saying sly remarks onto someone or a situation?  Are you truly meaning your prayers or do they just fall short of reaching up to our Heavenly Father?

Prayers for Everyone Estela Kelley SFF 61619

There are people of all walks of life but it’s up to us to pray faithfully, pray for the less unfortunate, and pray for everyone.  Even the one’s who have hurt us or the one’s we don’t particularly get along with.  We may not ever get along but pray that situation will simmer down.  We should uplift one another all the time. Pray with a thankful heart, send prayer requests for the meek, pray for the world, and know that goodness is within HIM.  GOD is good all the time.  Send prayers for everyone.

He is pleased in us when we are pleased with helping others. Helping in many ways such as giving, charity, and prayers. Making a difference with your time, skills, and talents for the good of others. This is a pleasant offering to our GOD. He sees our sincerity, love, and concern. Be patient with others that aren’t caught up in our world in mind, spirit, and work. We need to see from the outside in and develop patience for our world and send prayers for patience for yourself and prayers for others. Send prayers for everyone.

Acts 10:4 Your prayers & gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before our GOD.

Praise HIM

When you go into prayer, do you often find yourself asking, requesting, or seeking out advice from our Heavenly Father? “Give me, please GOD can you help me, help me with this one thing.” How much of your prayer time consists of praising HIM?  Praising him during the day. As you wash clothes or dishes? Giving HIM the glory for all the good things in life. Psalm 150:1:6 Praise the LORD. Praise GOD in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.  Let everything that breathes sing praises to the LORD. Praise the LORD.

Praise HIM Estela Kelley SFF

We need GOD in our lives not just for our prayer requests but to honor HIM with praise. To show and feel gratitude for all his creations, his evident love for you, and the gift and power of his word. There is so much to praise him for.  For having a goodnight’s sleep. For waking up healthy. For providing a supportive family and friends.  For the material things too, like your car and clothes. And job! There is so much beauty in this world that we should take note and thank HIM above for providing such as a beautiful sky, sunshine, and rain. Big and small trees and flowers. The air we breathe.  Take time to praise him before putting in your prayer requests. Praise HIM first!

Common Cooking Mistakes

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner once again! I’m so elated to be sharing the blessings of FOOD even during recovery! Today it’s about common cooking mistakes which I have learned and failed at as well. I’m by no means a chef nor pretend to be. I’m a foodie! I love food. I love good food. Not any foodie pictures this time around. Another reason is because I’ve had surgery so I had to do the best and hopefully you guys and gals appreciate this busy mama who was under the knife. No pun intended, but what an awesome intro to my 1st common cooking mistakes! Got to have sense of humor to uplift my spirits . So here we go!

Common Cooking Mistakes Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners

Knives:

Knives are very much used in everyday family cooking,right?! So we need to have a properly sharpened knife. Make sure it fits your hand size and meat size. I have small hands so a 12″ or 13″  won’t work for me.  But for my husband, it’s perfect.  If you are cutting rather large pieces of meat, then yes use the larger knives. Relatively speaking a good 8″ knife is a great family knife and good controllability. Preferably stainless steel is best. Ceramic will chip if it hits a large bone.

Spices:

I’m being truthful here when I say, I have spices older than a 2 years old.  It’s time to toss them out.  Spices have a shelf life so don’t buy bulk size if you are only going to use a few times and store the rest.  I’ve done that and so have you. Let’s get to tossing them out NOW. Now the rule is this:  Fresh spices last about 4 years, ground spices 2 to 3 years, and dried herbs 1 to 3 years depending.  Stored spices over time lose their flavor and potency and those are the qualities we seek when cooking. I guess I have some pantry spice cleaning!

Resting Meat:

If you’re like me, I like to cook and eat right away.  So why must I have to wait longer to eat my dinner! Truth be told here, the reason we need to allow our freshly cooked meat choice rest is because the juices redistribute through all that fresh meat. The result is a juicer dinner in your mouth. Would you rather have juicy tasting meat or juices run all over the cutting board?  I choose juicy tasting meat.

Preheating to Fast:

Have you often had a dinner where you taste an abundant amount of burnt oils? I have!  This is how this goes and normally happens:  You get your pan, turn up the heat to a medium high, and pour in your oil.  You turn around to gather a few items from the pantry or fridge.  By the time you open up your items to get the dish started, the oil is bubbling up, turning colors, and beginning to smell differently.  And the beneficial antioxidants break down and form an unusual taste and possibly harmful compounds. So next time you pour in some oil, keep an eye on it and once it begins to shine, the oil is hot enough to begin your amazing dish. Another thing is the pan.  Cast Iron is the best overall and leaches at the least chemical into your food.  Yes it does have iron but generally speaking it’s accepted as safe.  Another great pan are the ceramic pans because they are glazed not coated such as them teflon pans. And of course stainless steel.
