Paraffin candles, are petroleum based wax, burn sooty, blacken your walls and ceilings and are known to be toxic.

Beeswax has a totally clean non-toxic burn. Beeswax, when burned, emits negative ions. As in a rain storm, which is a negatively charged event, burning beeswax will clean the air. This happens when negative ions attach to positively charged ions that are holding dust, molds and other airborne contaminants. This attachment weights the positive ions and drops both the positive ions and the contaminants to the ground surface to be swept up and vacuumed.

Clean Beeswax is $6 per lb.

Foods that Heal


Men who ate a lot of cereals and some types of meats had an increased benign prostatic hyperplasia BPH risk. A diet that is low in starches and meats, and high in vegetables and polyunsaturated fats seems to be best for preventing BPH and relieving its symptoms.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer affecting men but soy products such as soy milk, tofu and tempeh can reduce the risk of this cancer by as much as 70%. 

Zinc: Sesame Seeds, pumpkin seed, almonds, adzuki beans

Omega-3: walnuts, ground flax seed, kidney beans, salmon

Soy: Soymilk, soy yogurt, tofu, tempeh

Vit. C: Raw Bell Peppers, broccoli, caulaflour, Kale, Brussels Sprouts

Lycopene: Tomatoes
You can also get this carotenoid from watermelon, apricots, pink grapefruit, and papaya.


Avocados and other foods rich in beta-sitosterol which include pumpkin seeds, wheat germ, soybeans, and pecans.

Vegetables:  Eating more vegetables can help lower your risk of BPH. Green leafy vegetables are especially important because they are rich in antioxidants. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli also reduce the risk of prostate problems, including BPH and prostate cancer. People who eat onion and garlic regularly might also have a lower risk of BPH.


It is also treated with Saw Palmetto, Rye Grass Pollen Extract, Stinging Nettle

Millet & Milkshake Breakfast



Milkshake:  2T chia seed, 2T buckwheat, 2T ground almonds + the contents of a pro-biotic capsule soaked in a cup and a half of soymilk or water for 10-15 min. I sometimes combine these in a blender, capped with the lid overnight in the refrigerator. Soaked chia seed makes the milk shake thicker. Blend this with 2T Costco's Plant Protein Powder or 1T cocoa pwdr with  and a half banana. If you use water or skip the protein pwdr, you'll need the banana!

Millet: Boil 1 c water, add ¼ c millet + ⅛ t. salt per person. Cook over low heat till millet is done, about 20 min. Top the Millet with Ground Sesame Seed and Flax Seed, Mixed Raw Nuts, Costco's Frozen Three Berries, Cut Apples, 2T Hemp Seed and perhaps some Unsweetened Shredded Coconut. 

Mixed Raw Nuts: We buy bags of raw nuts: almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, pistachios also dried cranberries, toss these together and divide into sandwich ziplock bags and store in the freezer, so they are always handy for breakfast or a snack.

Household Baptism


At each step in the developing revelation, God promises, “I shall be your God, and you shall be my people.” This theme resounds over and over until it reaches its climax in the person of Jesus Christ--”God with us” (Matt. 1:23). 
The contintinunity of God’s redemptive plan, from one administration of the covenant of grace to the next, is the predominant theme of the whole Bible. This is covenant theology. Any failure to grasp and appreciate the essential unity of God’s purpose leads to confusion and misunderstanding. God’s redemptive plan is both comprehensive--embracing every area of life--and unified in purpose. 
~Robert Booth, Children of the Promise, 45

Celebrating Christmas

Let the whole militant Church of Christ be blessed; put power into all faithful ministries; convert this country; save it from abounding sin; let all the Nations of the Earth know the Lord! Bring the Church to break down all bonds of nationality, all limits of sects, & may we feel the blessed unity which is the very glory of the Church of Christ! Yea, let the whole Earth be filled with His glory! Our prayer can never cease until we reach this point: Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven! Nothing less than this can we ask for! ~Spurgeon
JOY to the world, the LORD is COME! Merry Christmas!
"He was created of a mother whom He created. He was carried by hands that He formed. He cried in the manger in wordless infancy: He, The Word, without Whom all human eloquence is mute." ~Augustine








Friends invited us over for a dinner with sharing and singing.

Our telephone just gust got repaired. The line broke in a storm, so we have been without a land line for two weeks. There were others in our area with broken lines as well! Yet we thank God for the rain and even the fog after the dry spell. These ups and downs in the weather are normal. 
Family Gathering Jan. 1

Here's Mark Rushdoony on The Christian Christmas Tree:




We didn't get our Christmas tree up till Victor brought one home on Christmas Eve. Melody assured me that it was not too late since there are 12 days of Christmas beginning on Christmas Day and ending on Jan 6 Epiphany Celebration, the day the magi visited the Christ child. Our Romanian friends [as well as others from the East] celebrate Christmas on Jan. 6].

"This Epiphany, [celebration of the coming of the wise men, traditionally celebrated Jan. 6], rejoice in the world-wide victory of Christ and His salvation. Rejoice in the down payment given by the wise men, symbolizing the submission of the nations and their riches and cultures to our Savior King and His kingdom. This submission continues today and will advance victoriously until it is consummated in the new heaven and new earth." ~Peter B. 

And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. Revelation 21:23-26

Though we enjoy this movie, focusing on Mary & Joseph, Biblical betrothal was not arranged without the agreement of the couple.

David says, "It's the most realistic Bible times movie I've ever seen, by far."

Grandma Seppi

Gma Seppi showed us a very old bible she has had for many years but we did not recall seeing it before. She asked Lance what the bible says about women. 
Lance read to her: Titus 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." 

She assented that this was good.

Pray that God will draw her to seek Him before it is too late. She anticipated a last minute conversion. Perhaps God will open her eyes so that she will see and understand.
