Yes, I Can!!

I have never been crazy about baking or making bread or any of that yummy goodie stuff in the kitchen.  But for some reason, I do like to can!  Part of me likes that cozy feeling of getting ready for the coming winter. And part of me just likes to look at jars, filled and colorful bits of fruit or veggies!  This past week I canned 21 quarts of salsa!

Earlier, in late August, I did my peaches, pears and peach jam.

I tried something new this year since I seemed to have a bumper crop of jalapeno peppers.  I discovered a recipe for hot pepper relish.  It’s pretty tasty! 

             

 

Here’s a little twist on “canning”.  Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”  This is the best kind of canning and it is not seasonal!   We sing a song with the kids in Sunday School that just says it all…

I can put my faith in Jesus…Yes I Can!

Thank Him for His loving kindness…Yes I can!

I can have my sins forgiven,

Have a promised home in Heaven,

Win the battle when I’m tempted…Yes I can! 

 I can serve the Lord my Savior…Yes I can! 

Each day grow to be more like Him…Yes I can!

I can read God’s Word and pray,

Find His will and then obey,

Share God’s message of love today…Yes I can!   

I hope you have a “Yes, I can” kind of day!
