    1 Karge onion
    2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil, divided
    5 Garlic cloves, crushed
    1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
    3 (28- oz) cans plum tomatoes
    3 (28-oz)cans crushed tomatoes
    31/2 cups water
    6 Tsp sugar
    1 Tsp salt
    1 lb sweet Italian sausage links
    1 lb uncooked meatballs

  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot for 30 seconds. Add onion and saute for 3 minutes. Add 1 Tbsp basil, garlic, and oregano. Saute for 1 minute.
  2. Add tomatoes, water, sugar, and salt. Bring sauce to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and add sausage and meatballs.
  3. Simmer for 3 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally to make sure nothing sticks to the pot. Remove meats to a platter. Stir in remaining basil. Taste and add salt, if needed.

I am actually not really sure what to write.  I am sorry that I don't have much to say, but I was looking for something to post, but I didn't really have any ideas, so I am just sitting here kind of bored!!! I can't really keep my blog at one backround as you can see, so I've changed my backround yet again!! Well, Bye!!

1 Corinthians 13:4 -7

" Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.Love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things."

   These are helpful verses when we think of doing wrong, but then think that this is what Jesus was exactly like!! We need His help in order to do everything that love is.

It's Sunny!!

Harrah!! It is so sunny!! I'm so glad because we have had rainy days the past couple days, and it is finally extremely sunny!! I am so thankful that the Lord gives us sunny days and rainy days. It is nic to have a variety of weather, even though we don't always like it. Do you think so too? The Lord is so gracious to give us what we need, isn't He? I thank the Lord for all that He has done for me in my life. I hope you are thankful too, because God also gives us things that we don't even need, and He died for ud. I mean sent His only Son to give us Eternal life, just like it says in John 3:16. If you haven't already read that -- read it ASAP!!!

Mark's Gospel

 This is a link to the Gospel of Mark, as I am studying it at school. I went to see this live, and it is really great. He uses expression and motion as he recites from memory all of Mark. I highly reccommend this.

I Knit Tons of Hats!!

I have 6 hats that I knitted myself and I honestly don't know what to do with them!! I f you could give me ideas that would be great!! I have come up with a couple of thoughts, but they're either selling them or giving to people. I have already given some to people, but I kind of want to sell them!! But I don't know who would buy them ----- you know what I mean?!I could put them on ebay, but if didn't know who I was giving them to - then I would feel that I don't know what the person is going to do with them!! Anyway, if you have any ideas I would love to here them!!

Today, at school, I was able to play around with mosaic pieces to figure out what I wanted to do for my design. I haven't picked out my design totally yet, but at least I got to mix colors that I wanted to choose. It was really fun!!! We are making coasters that are either round or square. We can pretty much do any design! It is so awesome!!! If you haven't already made mosaics with cement and actual tiles, you should!! It is sooo cool. Especially because of the colors. We have really pretty colors to choose from.

Ephesians 4:26-29 (ESV)

Here are these powerful verses:

   "Be angry and do not sin;do not let the sun go down on your anger,and give no opportunity to the devil. Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor,doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear."

  these are great verses. We really need the LORD soooooo much, don't we. It is so hard to do what it tells us in these verses, but nothing is impossible with GOD.

I would like some ideas of things to post on my blog. So,  if you have any ideas for me, I  would love inspiration.
