It’s that Time of Year


I’m reminded of a passage in Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, when the entire household was in a flurry readying themselves for the social event of the year.

In the spring, we turned Orchard House upside down... with preparations for Meg to attend Sally Moffat's coming out.

That’s the feel around the Homestead the last few days preparing for our guests and the Fellowship Meeting that will last through Sunday.

alt“And it came to pass, that while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near and went with them.” (Luke 24:15)We welcome you to our annual Fellowship Meeting! Join us for services full of Bible preaching, singing, prayer, and fellowship. This is the perfect opportunity for you to draw near to Jesus and others who love God with all their hearts.

Service Times:
Thursday, Aug 29, 7:00p
Friday, Aug 30, 7:00p
Saturday, Aug 31, 10:00a & 6:00p
Sunday, Sep 1, 10:00a & 6:00p

Busy Bees are baking , cleaning, scrubbing up a storm’ most of which would never have been of interest until it was made known that some of the guests will be staying in the girl’s room.  Oh the scrubbing!  I can’t help but laugh a little at the depth of which my girls can really clean when really needed ( As in peers will be involved).  We have not yet met the family with whom we will be sharing our home, all we know is it will be a family of 5, good thing we do love surprises 🙂

Use hospitality one to another without grudging. I Peter 4:9

We need to practice hospitality with the end in mind – the reminder that the Lord is preparing a place for us in heaven where we will feast with the King, seated at His table and enjoy His presence forever.

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe
also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am
you may be also.
John 14:1-3

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 40 Minutes
Ready In: 55 Minutes
Servings: 36
“These tart, rich lemon bars need just seven common ingredients you probably already have, and are done in 55 minutes!”
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 lemons, juiced
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 inch pan.
3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
4. Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. For a festive tray, make another pan using limes instead of lemons and adding a drop of green food coloring to give a very pale green. After both pans have cooled, cut into uniform 2 inch squares and arrange in a checker board fashion.
