There is nothing like an early morning devotional period. A quiet time to spend with God alone. Gina Prince wrote “SHAKE THE CHAINS OFF.” Whom the Son has set free is free indeed (John 8:36). God is calling His people to live in freedom. Jesus died and rose again for us to live in this freedom (1 John 4:9-10). As we go through life the enemy has a job to do and that is to strap us down with worry, doubt, and disbelief. We have a job to do and that is to counteract his traps and destroy his work. We must stand on the word of God and believe we are truly free. We don’t have to sit down and take the torment of the enemy. The enemy’s job is to entangle our thoughts with negativity and keep us bound with hurt and pain. The Lord is our healer and we are free to receive healing from Him anytime (Exodus 15:16). We must shake off the chains; lift our hands up in freedom and worship the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:17). This is the hour to take a stand and believe God. This is the hour for the church to rise up and show the world we are living and we have much life in Christ. Don’t you know man can hold you hostage with tradition? Shake that chain off! You are free! Allow God to teach you how to pray, worship, and fast. Allow God to show you how to live. “HALLELUJAH!”
HELLO MORENO VALLEY
“Where Dreams Soar” Moreno Valley: This is a sad week for the Christian community as one of God’s warring Angels has gone to her heavenly home to rest. Her name was Laura Froehloch, also known as the “Flag Mama.” Laura greeted all military men and women going or coming at March Air Reserve Base and served as a long time coordinator of the Moreno Valley 4th of July Parade. You knew who she was because of her patriotic wardrobe and keeping things in order. Laura was also in the Air Force and was always so happy. But the joy of her life besides her husband was to make sure the troops were taken care of. She was such a giver. I know she is making God smile and I can truly say she always cared for me in a very nice way. Let us remember her family in prayer. Moreno Valley: If you have any concerns regarding the Eastern Municipal Water District, they will host public meetings every 1st and 2nd Wednesday of each month beginning at 9:00 a.m. If you wish to attend these meetings, call the secretary during normal business hours at (951) 928-3777, ext. 4235 to confirm.

To All My Gardners: Just a few hints on starting your own herb garden. Never begin planting your herb garden with the dirt you find outside. This is what happens when you plant in poor soil, the end product is poor quality herbs. You must make a mixture of equal parts potting soil and peat moss plus two parts vermiculite. The vermiculite holds water and makes it easier for the new plants to grow. All three ingredients can be purchased from your local garden center. I will give you more information on herb gardening next week. So many herbs are good for your health that it is worthwhile to grow. In case you have an abundance of cucumbers, canning some is the best way to preserve them. Here’s a recipe for dill pickles. Wash and pat dry your cucumbers. You will need garlic, fresh dill, 4-¼ cups apple cider vinegar, 4 cups water, onions, pickling spice, 1-¼ cups sugar, and ½ cup coarse salt. Into each prepared quart jar place 2 heads fresh dill, one small onion, one clove of garlic and ½ teaspoon pickling spice. Pack prepared cucumbers, either whole or sliced, into each jar. In a large saucepan combine sugar, vinegar, salt and water. Heat to boiling. Pour over cucumbers in each jar and immediately put on the lids. Place the filled jars in water and bring the water to a full boil. Turn off the heat and let jars sit in hot water 5 minutes before removing. Seal each jar.
