Green JELL-O-Cake with White Frosting

Posted on

Green JELL-O- Cake with White Frosting

To prepare my delicious  recipe for this cake you will need the following items:

2- cans of white cake frosting

3- packages of white cake mix

2-large boxes of JELL-O-gelatin dessert

Preparation for the Cake:

Prepare the cake with three layers according to the recipe on the box.

Preparation for the gelatin:

Prepare the gelatin according to the directions on the box and let it set in refrigerator until it is partially jelled.

Preparation for frosting the cake:

Place frosting on each layer of the cake, and leave them on separate dishes, then place JELL-O- on top of the frosting.

Now stack each layer on top of the other. ( The white frosting holds the JELL-O-within the layers of the cake)

On the very top layer of the cake, place some JELL-O- and do the same around the layers of the cake to form a design.

Refrigerate the Cake

Place the cake in a covered cake container, and keep it refrigerated.

You should have JELL-O- between the 3 layers of your cake, and JELL-O-on the top layer.

I Remember Mother’s Love

I Remember Mother's Love

I Remember Mother’s Love

It was mother’s love that made our house, a happy home.

I remember the kindness, and loving care of our mother who took good care of our needs, and those of many others.

During the storms of life, it was our mother’s love, that warmed our hearts and gave us hope to hold onto  our dreams, and keep the faith and endure the storm.

“This too shall pass, she said. Be strong, God will see us through this storm.”

Mother’s prayers and her love, guided us when we were away from home.

She taught us to be brave and strong. Her prayers, kept us safe from harm during the storms

when we were away from home.

On holidays and Sundays at the dinner table; I will always remember the laughter, during our conversations about past events and picnics; and the things we shared during the delicious meals we prepared.

When friends and others met my mother at public outings, they showed her great respect. She was greeted with lots of hugs and handshakes with warm and kind words of, “Thank you mam, for all the good things you do. I just wanted to say, I love you.”

This is the legacy of my loving mother. Her precious memories and love will always be within my heart. And her spirit will never depart.

In honor of all mothers on this special day

Happy Mother’s Day

Waiting For A Miracle

Posted on Updated on

Woman wakes from 16-year catatonic state on Christmas Eve Day

Waiting For A Miracle

For 16 years, a 42-year-old female was said to have been unresponsive to the world -unable to Speak, swallow or move much. On Christmas Eve, she suddenly snapped back to consciousness.

“Don’t do that,” she blurted out when nurses were trying to fix her nursing home bed on Dec. 24, 2000.

Doctors cannot explain why this lady awakened from the catatonic state she slipped into while delivering her fourth child. According to this newspaper report,  doctors said her condition was caused by a blood clot that lodged in her lung and caused her to stop breathing during a Caesarean section.

A Caesarean section is the removal of a fetus by means of an incision into the uterus; that is usually done through the abdominal wall.

Regarding her medical condition, her speech is said to be clear, but still limited. Her hands which had been clenched tightly for 16 years have loosened.  She is said to be speaking her children names, catching up on family developments and spending a lot of time watching her children.

At this time, report is that she is being driven up into the mountains to breathe the fresh air. She has been wheeled around a shopping mall. On Monday, she was said to have pointed to her new running shoes and said: “I’m going to run.”

“I just went up to her and gave her a hug, and she gave me a hug back,” the oldest child was quoted saying to the newspaper.

Her mother reportedly said, “It was a Christmas miracle from God.”

It took 16 years for this miracle to occur. That gives us the knowledge to know that God does not operate on our time schedule. He can perform miracles at any given time, and in any place, based on his judgment.

If you are waiting for your miracle, do not give up. It could happen today.

God’s Angels are near; wherever you are.
