“This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The Lord’s loving kindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness, ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul. ‘Therefore I have hope in Him.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him.” Lamentations 3:21-25
Today at the mom’s Bible study I attend, we read through the book of Ruth. Our study focused on God’s faithfulness to Naomi, and thus, His faithfulness in our individual lives. I can say for certain, that one way God has been faithful, is throughout the journey of bringing us our daughter! I took this photo of Gen yesterday, when she turned 15 months old. (Read our adoption story here at this blog: Journey of Blessing.) So, to quote our assignment:
“Spend some time praying for one another regarding God’s faithfulness in your lives. Thank Him for being faithful, and for the faithfulness you have seen. Pray that your hearts will be receptive to the ways God will be faithful in your lives.”
The purpose of Word-Filled Wednesday is to share God’s word through photos & a verse! For more Word-Filled Wednesday posts, visit: 160 Acre Woods.
And, by request, here is the “Hungarian” Chicken recipe. (It was originally called “Sesame Baked Chicken,” but after I served it to a friend years ago, I was told that it tasted “exactly” like the chicken at the local Hungarian restaurant. So, the name became “Hungarian Chicken.” (Works for me; the “Sesame” title sounded Asian, anyway.) It seems to take a ton of butter; it could probably be reduced, but I always forget. So, I serve it in a “decadent” pool of butter every time (and there are never any leftovers, either).
“Hungarian” Baked Chicken– serves 3-4
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbl baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 Tbl sweet paprika
2 Tbl sesame seeds
1 2 1/2 – 3 lb frying chicken, cut into serving pieces (just using legs/thighs works fine)
1/2 cup melted butter
Preheat over to 350*. Beat eggs & milk together. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, paprika, and sesame seeds in a paper bag. Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture and shake in the bag. Place chicken pieces skin side up in a baking dish so they do not touch each other. Pour melted butter over and bake until done, about 1 hour.
