Instead of buying a fancy food dehydrator, I’ve been loading trays into my car and parking in the sun. I try not to put the food and herbs in direct sunlight, especially if the herbs are delicate.

Pictured Below: Cat’s ear weed flowers and roots. I’m using the flowers for medicinal tea, and the roots for an oil infusion for the skin. The root contains cortisone, so I’m planning to make allergy skin salve with the infused oil. You can also prepare the leaves, stems, and buds of the plant as food. Supposedly, the stalks are like asparagus, and the buds can be prepared like capers. The leaves can be used in the same way as any other leafy greens, such as spinach. Always identify plants with utmost care and caution. When in doubt, go without.

Our very first home-hatched chickens emerged from their shells yesterday. Some pipping and chirping happened the night before. We got four baby chicks from five viable eggs. The chicks pictured below are all from an Ameracauna rooster and a Barred Rock hen.

“And God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind; and God saw that it was good.” -Genesis 1:21

The Book of Revelation is the only book of the Bible that explicitly promises a blessing for reading it and keeping it. The whole Bible is a blessing, but there is a particular reward from God awaiting those who are ready for the return of Jesus.

Get ready for Jesus today. Study the Book of Revelation. Read it out loud. Teach it to others. Keep the promise of Jesus’ return near to your heart and ever on your lips.

Blessed is the one who reads, and those who hear the words of the prophecy and keep the things which are written in it; for the time is near. – Revelation 1:3

Christianity is the only religion that when taken to the extreme results in the laying down of one’s life for others. Sadly, false versions of Christian extremism have resulted in the censorship, persecution, oppression, and killing of those who don’t comply. These acts of force are not from Christ. Jesus never took up a sword. He gave up His life to save the world, and He expects His followers to do the same.

This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that a person will lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you. –The words of Jesus from John 15:12-14

For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory. -The words of the Apostle Paul from 2 Timothy 2:11

Come to Jesus, the God who loves you to the extreme that He died for you. Become a Christian right now. Believe that Jesus came to earth, died for your sins on the cross, and rose to life. Jesus is your Savior, the Savior of the World, the Son of God, the Messiah.

Our family is praying for India this week, where Hindu extremists are violently attacking people who practice other religions, including Christians. We pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters as well as their persecutors. Some persecutors have already seen the emptiness of harming others and have come to believe in Jesus. Praise God!
