When he walked into the room filled with all kinds of wonderful smells, he wondered what all the fuss was, for he is a humble man, indeed. We then told him how thankful we were to have such a wonderful daddy and for me a loving husband. He smiled and said a humble thank you. Mark is a simple man, he is slow to speak but his every word is tempered with wisdom and truth.
Delicious Caramel Corn:
2 cups sucanat, rapadura (brown sugar is what the Amish use)
1 cup butter
1/2 cup honey (karo syrup is what the Amish use)
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
5-6 quarts of popped corn
Combine the sugar, butter, honey and salt. Boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda. Pour immediately over the popped corn and mix really well. Bake in 250ºF oven for one hour. Stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and spread on large surface to cool. This will not stick. It is so good! Enjoy on a slow evening with your family.
HE LEADETH ME
1.He leadeth me: O blessed thought!
O words with heavenly comfort fraught!
Whate'er I do, where'er I be,
still 'tis God's hand that leadeth me.
He leadeth me, he leadeth me,
by his own hand he leadeth me;
his faithful follower I would be,
for by his hand he leadeth me.
2. Sometimes mid scenes of deepest gloom,
sometimes where Eden's bowers bloom,
by waters still, o'er troubled sea,
still 'tis his hand that leadeth me.
3. Lord, I would place my hand in thine,
nor ever murmur nor repine;
content, whatever lot I see,
since 'tis my God that leadeth me.
4. And when my task on earth is done,
when by thy grace the victory's won,
e'en death's cold wave I will not flee,
since God through Jordan leadeth me.
