Capitol update

The Fourth of July is always one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. Although our celebrations look a little different this year for many Americans, it’s still important to take time on this special date to remember our country’s fight for freedom.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH YOU ARE LOVED!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG YOU HAVE BEEN LOVED!! IT’S INCREDIBLE HOW MUCH GOD THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY GHOST LOVE YOU!!! In my book: “THE MAD HOUSE”, I try to give God the glory for loving someone even as vile as me, and HE DOES. John 3:13-21 13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. YOU ARE LOVED BY GOD, SO MUCH, THAT HE LITERALLY GAVE HIS HEART, SO THAT WE CAN BE WITH HIM FOREVERMORE!!

A Few of My Favorite Things

Arugula, also known as rocket, was first grown and used as a medicinal herb in ancient Roman times. It was also considered an aphrodisiac! Today this leafy green has become popular in many cuisines. Arugula is an edible herb in the brassica or mustard family along with cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and collard greens. The leaves are a deep green in color with deep notches up and down both sides. It is best to harvest them before they are full grown as they tend to get bitter as they mature. As a young plant, they have a light pepper taste that can enhance any meal. Another bonus, if you happen to grow it, the leaves, seed and flowers are all edible.
