Change is in the air once again. A few days ago, I knew that I was now done with blogging. I sense the Lord telling me to “move on”. My work is done on this front.
I want to thank everyone for “hearing me out” and taking the time to read what I have written. I had very few negative comments which is something I was very surprised about considering the topics I wrote about. Some very controversial.
So, as of December 30th the blog will no longer be on-line. Therefore, if you want to save anything you will need to do so before then. Everything will be deleted from the Host Server.
Before I sign off for good I wanted to encourage you to stay strong, stay faithful, and don’t worry. Over the last few years I wrote somewhat on what is to come……well, I think I also stated that no one knows how things will play out. We do know a couple of things. One, we are certainly in the “Purification Process” and have been for a number of years now. Two, things will only get worse before they get better, and Three, the only way we will survive is to depend totally on God.
I want to just share some of my thoughts about something here. I was reading the latest blog from “Charlie” which can be found here.
After thinking about it for awhile something kind of hit me. He, along with all of the visionarys who have been told by the Lord that we would see our souls, also known as the Warning (Garabandal), cite that this warning will be such that Everyone will know there is a God and all of us will have to choose….either for God or against God. In his article he states that he is still being told that before the end of the year We will all know about God and the Blessed Virgin Mary and at that time we will have to choose which side we will be on. God’s or satans.
Does this mean that the “warning” is around the corner…..that what Charlie is talking about without him really knowing is the “Warning”. I don’t know either, but certainly something to ponder. A good possibility. I know that one of the Visionarys from Medjugoree said that the warning would take place during the football season…..anywhere between September and February.
I bring this up to you because I think its always a good thing to keep your eyes fixed on the Lord and to make sure you are spiritually ready for anything that is to come. That my friends is the most important advice anyone can give you. Nothing else really matters….your soul is at stake and thats what matters most right now. Only God will be able to lead and guide each one of us in whatever situation we find ourselves.
I recently read a book “Struck by Lightning – Death, Judgment and Conversion” the testimony of Gloria Polo from Colombia. I know I wrote about this quite awhile ago so it is on the blog. You can find it here. I didn’t have the book at that time, but this summer our Church was selling this book for cheap so I bought it. Wow, it is so unbelievably good. You really need to get it.
I will give you the ordering information here.

The First thing she says is: Read This. Go to Confession. This is how we will be judged.
I don’t think anyone wants to go to Hell – especially those who are lukewarm in their faith. Even Atheists would not want to go against God if they knew what was in their future. satan wants everyone to believe that he does not exist, but look around at all the evil….thats one clue satan exists. Look at the beauty around you….thats one clue God does exist. Truly we will all know very soon that there is indeed a God and how we are faring….by this I mean we will see our life through the lens of God’s eyes.
So, during this Advent maybe its a good idea to take time to be silent and ask Jesus to show you what you need to know about yourself….ask Him how He sees you….what you need to change. Honestly, it isn’t tough hearing it from Him. Maybe from one’s peers but not from Jesus.
I have on a few occasions been asked how I am preparing for what is to come. I am preparing Spiritually first and foremost. Secondly, I have maybe a couple months worth of extra food on hand, but that may have to be shared with others so I am counting on God to multiply or provide for our needs in different ways. We have a wood-burning fireplace with lots of wood in the event we lose power. My husband was inspired to build me a greenhouse which can be run by solar panels and these solar panels are powerful enough to also run our well if need be. I purchased a number of cool little LED lanterns, head lights, candles, etc for light; Solar lights on the property outside and warm clothing; and I did purchase a little portable stove that utilizes three different types of fuel: wood, propane and gas. Lastly, I pray that we can be a source of hope and love for all whom we encounter.
Our plan is to totally depend on God but also use some prudence by acquiring some useful items in the event that we are without power for a time. As you know this is certainly possible….look at how terrible the hurricanes were this fall in various areas of the country a few months ago. Our beautiful country is being purified big time. That brings up another matter…. Our Church.
Our Pope is not leading his flock to God, but rather away from God. Many Priests, Bishops and Cardinals are following in his footsteps. You need to know your Faith, stay true to your Faith and live your Faith no matter what. Do not follow others but rather follow God. Lead others to truth and you will have God’s protection. Love the Blessed Mother and St. Joseph and call on your Guardian Angels. The Lord is definitely purifying the Church.
Ok, so now before I close I absolutely have to share one more recipe with you. The best of the best. If you like brownies and you are grain free and sugar free you will die for these. These taste just like my Brownie recipe made with flour and sugar. These are the absolute best. I think I will have to stock up on these. I could eat the whole pan.
- 1 bar (3.5 oz / 100 g) extra dark chocolate – 85 % cocoa
- 4 1/2 oz (125g) butter, ghee or coconut oil (I used butter)
- 3 large eggs
- 15-20 drops liquid stevia (I used 1/2 tsp Stevia Glycerite)
- 3/4 cup (4.2 oz/ 120 g) erythritol, powdered
- 1 cup (3.5 oz/ 100 g) almond flour
- 1/2 cup (1.6 oz/45 g) plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup (1.1 oz/ 30 g) ground chia seeds*
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 bar (1.8 oz /50 g) extra dark chocolate – 85 % cocoa
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter (I used ghee)
- 1/4 cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350 F (gas mark 4) and position the rack to the middle. Spray an 8×8 square (20×20 cm) brownie pan (I used a 9×9 inch) with baking spray and line with parchment so that the bottom and two opposite sides are mostly covered. Leave the excess parchment so that you can pull the brownies out of the pan when cool.
Break the chocolate into small pieces and add it and the butter into a small bowl placed over slowly simmering water. When most of the chocolate has melted, remove the bowl and stir the chocolate.
Place the eggs, stevia and powdered erythritol into a medium bowl and mix to combine. Next beat in the chocolate. Add the dry ingredients and starting on low speed and gradually getting faster, mix until thoroughly combined. (starting on low prevents the cocoa powder from making a big cloud!)
Spread the thick brownie batter into the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. Let it cool in the pan. When cool, run a sharp thin knife around the edge and lift the brownies out of the pan with the parchment. Don’t worry if it cracks.
Break the chocolate into small pieces and place into a smallish bowl with the ghee, coconut oil or butter. Pour the heavy cream into a small saucepan and, over medium heat, bring it up to a simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let it sit for a minute. Stir until combined and glossy. Let it cool a bit and thicken. Spread over the brownies and let cool in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened.
Cut and serve. Serves 16. Refrigerate any remaining brownies and enjoy at room temperature.
NOTE: For those who have Martina’s book and can’t find this recipe…. This is her Fudgy Grasshopper Brownie recipe on page 222. I omitted the mint layer because my family does not like mint. I’m sorry for any confusion!
*3 tablespoons of chia seeds, when ground, will equal about 1/4 cup.
It’s best to under-cook the brownies for a fudgy texture.
These last three years have been a learning experience for me and I was asked to step out in Faith which I did. I hope that during these last few years I have been able to provide you with useful information. May God Bless you all and give you the Faith, Hope and Love you will need in the days ahead.
