If we are being honest…

wine

I have questioned myself several times on if I should really write this but I feel like God keeps pushing me to write this. Its my personal story and journey that I am going through. If we are really honest with ourselves, I know I’m not the only person who has questioned myself if I was drinking too much.  I wouldn’t call myself an alcoholic or anything but honestly it use to be a problem. I am not about to blame anyone or anything, I did it to myself. However, when did drinking become the “Cool thing” to do?

I grew up in Louisiana, where everything revolved around drinking. I mean EVERYTHING! Your watching football.. your drinking, cooking.. your drinking, eating crawfish… your drinking, have friends over… your drinking, going to dinner… your drinking. You get my point. I’m a mom of A LOT of kids.. some my own and some we foster. I loved to have a glass of wine at the end of the day just to unwind from the day.. relax a little. Well, that started to become a “thing”. One glass here.. one glass there… before you know it, there went the bottle. Now, this didn’t just happen over night, this happened over months, years.

Now, I know some of you are thinking… so… there isn’t anything wrong with that as long as its not all the time. Well… if we are being honest with ourselves. Its way more than we let on. I mean… no one knew how much I drank. I called myself a “closet drinker” cause I drank at home when no one was around. I kept telling myself that it was ok because I wasn’t getting drunk. Isn’t that what the Bible says anyway.. Not to be drunk? So as long as you don’t get drunk, your fine. Right? WRONG!

God kept convicting me that I needed to stop drinking. Not to relax, not socially, not anytime. Honestly, I fought God on this because.. lets face it… drinking can be relaxing and fun. My God doesn’t give up… EVER! He kept on and kept on. The closer I got to God, the more I realized why drinking is so wrong. Even just 1 drink!

The world has made drinking out to be something its not. I see ads with moms taking a bubble bath while drinking wine, just to relax. You know whats wrong with that ad and what was wrong with me? The mom in the ad, myself and many other moms and dads…. we are using alcohol to relax us instead of running to God to relax us. What?? I know what your thinking, ” Ambra, really… wine isn’t that bad!”. God doesn’t want us to do anything… I mean anything that takes His place. He is Peace, He is Joy, He is Love, He is everything that alcohol isn’t. When I fully understood that I was using wine, alcohol, to give me what God could. I stopped completely. Its been 4 months since I have tasted any kind of alcohol. Now I know that might not mean much to anyone but that’s 4 months that God has given me all the Peace, relaxation, joy and fun that I have ever needed.

So, listen up. Stop listening to the world. Stop believing that its ok to drink occasionally or socially like I did. Its not. Pray about. Listen to what God is telling you. This post isn’t to judge anyone but to reach those who might be in the same boat as I was. I’m not anti-social .. Actually, I’m more social now then I have ever been. I still hang out with people who do drink and I’m ok with it.. no judgement. Your walk with God, is your walk with God.

But lets me honest with ourselves for a change.

If you don’t have a Bible or have been looking for a study Bible. This is by far my favorite!Life Application Study Bible: New Living Translation

What can be seen in the sky?

As some of you might know, I have a slight obsession with sunrises and sunsets. There is something special about a sunrise and a sunset. The sunrise means the start of a new day. Letting go of the old.. the past.. and starting fresh. Its so refreshing to wake up and see what God painted in the sky. It is a constant reminder that it’s never to late to start over.

12011254_10206654595377105_4912179563874046927_n

I took this picture of the sunrise, coming over I-10 bridge in Lake Charles, Louisiana. If you look at the picture you can see the dark clouds rolling away to expose the bright beautiful clouds. As the sun rises every day so does Gods Glory, it actually never goes away because the moon always reflects the sunlight. Just like the sun, Gods Glory and love for us is overwhelming. We need it to survive and only through God can we actually survive. Just as we need the sun to survive here on earth.

Sunsets. Just like the sunrises, the sunsets are a constant reminder that, that day is finished. As the sun goes down, we have hope for a new day. I have taken alot of sunrises and sunset pictures and I can honestly say that I have never seen the same sunset. The colors are different, the clouds are different… we are all different. But one thing never changes and that’s God’s love for us.

When we see the sunrises and sunsets, remember Gods Glory, remember His loves for us. He paints the skies for us daily.. twice a day.

Psalms 19:1

A psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Here are some of my pictures that I took and are my favorites:

Can Fried Foods Be Healthy?

We all love fried foods. I mean, come on.. fried chicken, chicken fried steak, fried shrimp, egg rolls.. is your mouth watering yet? I grew up in south Louisiana where everything is fried, even oreos… yes oreos and they are so good! Maybe I should do a post about that…ummmm. So, could fried foods be healthy? Honestly, I have no clue but what I do know is someone came out with this new kitchen gadget called an Power Air Fryer XL (5.3 QT Deluxe, Black). This thing fries your food without the oil!! Which is the most fattening part of frying anything. I will be honest, its not the cheapest but this thing is awesome and is my new addiction!!

Here is a recipe that I cooked the other night. I can’t take credit for it cause it was one of the display samples at Sam’s.

20170419_153518

Ingredients:

~SeaPak Butterfly Shrimp or you can bread and fry your own (using the air fryer)
~Sister Schubert’s Dinner Yeast Rolls
~Mrs. Dash-Original Seasoning Blend, 6.75 oz
~Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise 30 oz

Instructions:

Add the Dinner Yeast rolls to baking pan and cook according to the package. I basted melted butter on top of mine. I know… that doesn’t help but hey, I used organic butter (lol).

20170419_155510

Next you want to add shrimp to the bottom of the air fryer

20170419_155607

On the air fryer, press the power button ( the basket MUST be pushed in all the way for it to start… safety feature). Next you want to press the “M” button until it displays the shrimp symbol. Once symbol displays, the fryer will start automatically in a few seconds.

While the shrimp is cooking, time to make sauce.

I use 1 cup of Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise 30 oz and 2 tablespoons of Mrs. Dash-Original Seasoning Blend, 6.75 oz, mix well.

20170419_160334

Once your yeast rolls and shrimp are done, comes the fun part.

Cut your yeast rolls in half. Spread your sauce mixture onto the rolls, then add 2 shrimp. It should look like this:

These are so good!! I have some picky eaters and they loved it!! My husband ask for me to make these on a regular basis lol. This is so easy to make for dinner, snacks or appetizers for a party.

I have made a TON of other things using my air fryer. Everything has come out tasting way better than if I would have used oil. Like for real.. surprised me at how good they really were. I now use the fryer for EVERYTHING! Even a whole chicken! You have got to try it!

Here is a list of good cookbooks for using the air fryer:
