Faith in Action: The under one hour five-step dinner plan

This had to be reprinted becuse it was too good not to put here.
Ok, its dinner time. Nothing was thawed. No one wanted what was in the fridge. Pizza night was two nights away and fish was eaten previously. A favorite show came on in an hour. One must have had faith. Don’t panic because, there’s a solution. Below was an Under one-hour five-step dinner plan that would’ve fed even the hungriest of people.
Hebrews 11:1 said (NIV):
11 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup of elbow macaroni, or favorite pasta
  • ¼ cup of broccoli pieces, or favorite vegetables
  • Small piece of cut meat, or prepared
  • Three tablespoons of cheese

Directions:
  1. Boil, on medium to medium-high heat in a two-quart saucepan, ¼ cup of elbow macaroni or a favorite pasta. Drain and return to saucepan.
  2. Boil, on medium to medium-high heat in a two quart sauce pan, ¼ cup of broccoli pieces or a favorite vegetable. Drain and add to the macaroni.
  3. Heat, a small piece of cut turkey, 2 minutes and 30 seconds in the microwave from frozen, or along with prepared meat and ½ cup of cheese sauce. Add to the macaroni vegetable mixture.
  4. Heat on medium to medium-high heat until coated with cheese.
  5. Carefully pour into a medium cereal bowl and enjoy. Served one.
Matthew 17:19-21 said (KJV):
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
This was tried by me last week and it worked All was done in under an hour. “Family Guy” came on at seven o’clock on TBS on Mondays and Thursdays, which was enjoyed by me while eating dinner.

Removing the speckle: Critiques better left to the public

Removing the speckle: Critiques better left to the public

Winter’s Tale, the movie being released on Valentine’s Day nation-wide, was not based on Shakespeare’s play, but Mark Halprin’s book. Unlike the person who saw this movie but never read the book, all this hype about the movie made me want to read the book and watch the movie either by cable, incidentally Time Warner Cable was bought by Comcast, or by computer download on Amazon.com. Critics were everywhere, so my problems with them were somewhat justified.

The Bible said in Matthew 7:5 (KJV):

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

My  three biggest problems with critics were that they:

  • Thought their words carried a lot of weight. By panning something that they didn’t like, it might have kept box office receipts down. In all fairness, sometimes they were right. There weren’t too many movies unliked by me except perhaps Avatar and the movie version of  Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera
  • While the author of the review read by me did not read the book, this future reviewer wanted to read the original story and watch the movie so an accurate review was written. At least my reading the American version of Phantom of the Opera was read while watching all the movies. 
  • While everyone was entitled to their own opinions, that’s what reviews were. The final judge on whether the movie was good or bad should be left to the ticket buyer. It wouldn’t have been what the reviewer said about the movie that kept me away, but the price of the ticket. Movies had to have been good to have spent $8 just to have seen them. The last movie seen by me was The Butler last August, and that was during a matinee time.  

Watching the movie might have told me where Will Smith and Colin Farrell fit in this movie. My return was assured to have my own review written and have that issue answered.
