Music will be delayed a bit due to the nature

of this download of the MP3,

patience needed, thank you ...


We need the reminder, perhaps that our friends are special to our growth.

Our paths have crossed with reason. We complete a portion of the plan for one

another's lives. And -- for such gifts we need to offer gratitude.

Make this day one to remember with fondness. Appreciate a friend. Let them know

they matter in your life. Their life will be enhanced by your attention.

Remember that this day well lived will prepare you

for both the pleasure and the pain tomorrow may bring.

Till one has loved an animal -- one has NOT lived

Pray - and welcome meditation in your life. Both will direct any of your

efforts today. It is then your purpose can be fulfilled.

Meaty Manicotti

14 uncooked manicotti shells

1 pound bulk Italian sausage
3/4 pound ground beef
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups meatless spaghetti sauce, divided
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook manicotti shells according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage and beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Remove from the heat. Cool for 10 minutes.

Drain shells and rinse in cold water. Stir the mozzarella cheese, cream cheese and salt into meat mixture. Spread 2 cups spaghetti sauce in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
Stuff each shell with about 1/4 cupful meat mixture; arrange over sauce. Pour remaining sauce over top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Cover and bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until bubbly and heated through. Yield: 7 servings.

A Coffee Filter

Tip For Today

If you have cast iron skillets and such, place a coffee filter

in the cookware to absorb moisture and prevent rust.

The LORD is slow to anger and great in power,

the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished.

 His way is in the whirlwind and the storm,

and clouds are the dust of his feet.

Nahum 1:3
