Peanut Butter Cheesecake Truffles

20170815_105643

Need:
1 8oz of philly cream cheese
1 regular size jar of your favorite Peanut Butter
1 Bag of melting Chocolate/chocolate bark
1/2 Cup of Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
Nuts (optional)

Do:
Take your cream cheese, powdered sugar & peanut butter in your mixer & whip together using your paddle attachment (you can hand mix if you would prefer) until fully incorporated. Once combined, use your hands to create little balls, about an inch/inch & a half each
Roll each ball in the Graham Cracker Crumbs, then press them into each ball with your fingers (you dont want loose crumbs). Place each of the balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 1-2 hours (or until solid, if you can wait that long).
Place the melting chocolate or bark in a bowl & microwave for 90 seconds. Stir &, if needed, heat an additional 15 seconds until it’s smooth & creamy. Watch it closely, keep stopping to stir (it burns easily if you use this way).

I recommend using a double boiler, easier & you always get perfect melting chocolate. Using a fork, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Tap your fork on the side of your bowl to remove the excess. Place back on your parchment lined sheet. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I’m a Pisces

Standard

Do you believe in astrology?

Do you read your daily horoscope?

I don’t necessarily believe in any of it, but I do find it entertaining. I like to compare the details of my sign to who I truly am and see how it all matches up.

I’m a Pisces. I was born on March 13th.

pisces

Pisces are very friendly, so they often find themselves in a company of very different people. Pisces are selfless, they are always willing to help others, without hoping to get anything back.

Pisces is a Water sign and as such this zodiac sign is characterized by empathy and expressed emotional capacity.

Their ruling planet is Neptune, so Pisces are more intuitive than others and have an artistic talent. Neptune is connected to music, so Pisces reveal music preferences in the earliest stages of life. They are generous, compassionate and extremely faithful and caring.

People born under the Pisces sign have an intuitive understanding of the life cycle and thus achieve the best emotional relationship with other beings.

Pisces-born are known by their wisdom, but under the influence of Uranus, Pisces sometimes can take the role of a martyr, in order to catch the attention. Pisces are never judgmental and always forgiving. They are also known to be most tolerant of all the zodiac signs.

Pisces Love and Sex

Deep in their hearts, Pisces-born are incorrigible romantics. They are very loyal, gentle and unconditionally generous to their partners. Pisces are passionate lovers who have a need to feel a real connection with their partners. Short-term relationships and adventures are not peculiar to this zodiac sign. In love and relationship, they are blindly loyal and very caring.

Pisces Friends and Family

Gentle and caring, Pisces can be the best friends that may exist. In fact, they often put the needs of their friends in front of their needs. They are loyal, devoted, compassionate and whenever there is some problem in the family or among friends, they will do their best to resolve it. Deeply intuitive, Pisces can sense if something is wrong, even before it happens. Pisces are expressive and they will not hesitate to express their feelings to the people around them. They expect others to be open to them as they are. Communication with loved ones is very important for them.

Pisces Career and Money

Intuitive and often dreamy, Pisces feel best in a position where their creative skills will come to the fore, even better if it’s for charity. Occupations that fit Pisces are: attorney, architect, veterinarian, musician, social worker and game designer.

Inspired by the need to make changes in the lives of others, they are willing to help even if that means to go beyond the boundaries. This zodiac sign is compassionate, hard-working, dedicated and reliable. Pisces-born can be great at solving problems.

For the most part, Pisces don’t give money too much thought. They are usually more focused on their dreams and goals, but they will try to make enough money to achieve their goals. In this area, there can be two sides of the Pisces – on one hand, they will spend a lot of money with little thought, while on the other hand they can become quite stingy. Yet, in the end, there will always be enough money for a normal life.

How to Attract the Pisces Man

Romance rules the world of the Pisces men. The man born under the Pisces astrology sign lives to please and love. The best way to seduce a Pisces man is to open up to him completely.

Some of the best Pisces traits are his sensitivity, compassion, and kindness. He is a gentle person who will figure out what you want and then serve it up as often as possible.

He is always looking for ways to help others and knows exactly what you want almost before you do. His desire to please leaves him susceptible to manipulation and lies. He will use his wild imagination to please you. The Pisces man loves to laugh, so if he finds you funny and easy to be around, you are on a good way to seduce him.

He seems calm on the outside, but on the inside, you will find a different person, as the Pisces man battles between strong emotions. Encourage him to open up and release those feelings. One of the greatest Pisces characteristics is the ability to tune into other’s emotions. So, if you are dating a Pisces man, you can look forward to an emotionally fulfilling relationship.

How to Attract the Pisces Woman

Pisces women are known as kind, imaginative, compassionate, selfless and extremely sensitive individuals. If you want to attract the woman born under the Pisces zodiac signs, you need to be romantic and to have a good sense of humor. It is also important to be a good listener.

The Pisces personality is compassionate and full of unconditional love. Once you have captured her attention, she will be quick to open up to you. A sex with the Pisces woman will be explosive and you will never be bored with her in the bedroom.

The woman born under the Pisces star sign enjoys lively discussions about spiritual things and the supernatural. She is intuitive and will quickly figure out if all you are looking for is just sex. She wants to be treated with respect and you will never be able to seduce her fully during the first few dates. If you’re honest and if you open up to her, she will immediately feel more connected with you.

The Pisces woman is very sensitive by nature, so she is not quick to forgive and forget. If her heart has been wounded in the past, she will have a hard time opening herself back up to the thought of a new romantic relationship.

Six Habits That Will Draw You Nearer to God

Standard

6 Habits That Will Draw You Nearer to God

Here are six habits that will draw you nearer to God.

Submitting to God

James tells us, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded” (James 4:7-8). Step one is to submit to God and to His Word. Then resist the temptations cast at you by the enemy, and finally he will flee from you and you won’t be as easily influenced by the demonic habits that so easily beset you.

Being Broken Before God

Want to draw closer to God? Certainly you do. And the psalmist gives us a way to do that by writing, “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” (Psalm 43:18). We can’t get any nearer to God than when we are broken the most because God cannot fix what is first not broken. Interestingly, we are nearer to God when we are at our lowest point in life. In an ironic way, the way up is the way down, with humility and brokenness and being crushed in spirit.

Fasting Before God

When we fast we shouldn’t tell anyone because Jesus taught that this can turn into a self-righteous act, even more so if we tell others about it. We should be fasting in private, and it should be between only us and God. Fasting can draw you nearer to God, but check with your doctor first and make sure you don’t have any medical conditions that might cause you harm.

Ministering to Others

When we are helping the least of the world, we are doing it for Christ Himself (Matthew 25:40). This might include visiting the sick or those in prison, helping those who have little or nothing, and being hospitable to strangers (Matthew 25:35-36), for we are also strangers or sojourners on a pilgrimage to the Promised Land. Doing for others is really doing for Christ.

Praying Always

Want to know the will of God? Many people are praying for and seeking to find God’s will for their lives. Here it is: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). To draw nearer to God, you must be in more communication with Him, which begins and ends with prayer.

Abiding in the Word

Jesus tells us that if we abide in His Word, He will abide in us. Don’t you want that? Jesus told His disciples, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:4-5). Since we can’t do anything apart from Christ, why not abide in His Word on a daily basis because we can’t live by physical bread alone (Matthew 4:4).

Conclusion

To draw near to God, we must first submit to God, which means submitting to His Word; we must come broken before God in true humility because He’s near the brokenhearted; we can fast to see our utter dependence on Him for everything; we can minister to others since it’s really doing it for Christ; we can be praying at all times; and we must abide in Christ and in His Word because without Him we can do nothing. And nothing is not a little something.

May God richly bless you,

Pastor Jack Wellman

Autoimmune Complications

Standard

I’ve never shared this before. This is incredibly personal and vulnerable.

IBDs (inflammatory bowel diseases) are “invisible diseases.” You can’t see the disaster that is taking place on the inside of body with the naked eye.

However, what people don’t realize is that there are many things that come along with these diseases, manifestations, that CAN be seen with the naked eye. For example, for the last ten years, my back has been constantly “breaking out.” It itches, it hurts, it’s embarrassing, it’s not attractive (in my eyes) in the slightest and now, my chest is starting to do it.

Autoimmune diseases effect way more than the “official diagnosis.” This is just one example and this link here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3273725/ is great for additional information regarding skin manifestations with IBDs.
