Question...

Question: What can the devil NOT do???
I was thinkin the other day ALL that the devil will do to try and take away someone's testimony. The devil can take away our joy and our happiness. He can take away our innocence and purity and corrupt our minds. He can take away our peace and hope for our future... He can take away our morals and ethics and rightousness. He can take it ALL AWAY...and leave us empty and broken...he can do all that...IF you let him...
 .
BUT despite ALL that the devil CAN take from you, there is ONE THING that the devil CAN NEVER take from you, he can't EVER take away from you, is WHAT GOD HAS ALREADY DONE FOR YOU!!!!
 .
The devil wants to ruin you. He wants to destroy you. He wants make you think that you can't make it. That you've failed, turned your back on God so why even bother. Why keep trying? He wants to take away what God's done for you...BUT he can't. The devil can't ever change what God has ALREADY DONE!!!  
 .
If you have ever obeyed Acts 2:38, repented of your sins, been baptized in Jesus name, YOUR SINS were washed away and the devil can't EVER change that!!! God has already FORGIVEN YOU!!! He has already filled YOU with the HOLY GHOST!!! You may be living a life right now that is away from God, you may need a REFILLING of the Holy Ghost, buuuuuuuut that STILL does NOT change what God already did for you!!! He has ALREADY brought you salvation!!!  He has already redeemed YOU!!! There is NOTHING the devil can never do to change that!!!
.
 The devil can't take away the fact that Jesus already paid the price for your sin! The devil can't ever change the fact the he who knew NO SIN, became sin so that we could become the righteousness of God! God ALREADY DID IT! The devil can NEVER change that! What it comes down to ultimately is one thing...CALVARY!!! It doesn't matter what you do or what you have done or what anyone says...the devil can NEVER take away CALVARY!!! Jesus has ALREADY died for YOU and there is nothing, nothing, NOTHING the devil can ever do to take that away!!!
.
Question: What can the devil NOT do???
.
Answer: He can't change WHAT GOD HAS ALREADY DONE!!!

Guess whose....

Driving for postmates????
Yes, yes. Yes!!!! If you guessed yours truly you are absolutely correct!!!! It was really random buuuuuut April 12th i started and absolutely πŸ’― loooooove it!!!
.
I have been suspended from driving twice, buuuuuut i figured out what to do when you can't complete a delivery!!! Neverrrrr say you can't...even if you just drop it off at the wrong house...don't cancel the delivery after you picked up the order!!! 
1. Cancelation #1 i realized 30 minutes before i had to pick the kids up off of Scottsdale rd that the order was off of Camelback , i was liiiiiiike OH SNAP, Sister Abbott πŸ˜… is not gonna be happy with me if im an hour late doing a job thst i don't actually need! So i just brought the food back to the restaurant and they suspended me for the rest of the day!!!
.
2. Then the next evening i just completely freaked out cuz i turned on the automatic deliveries and they just kept piling on and then it got dark out and i forgot how to turn on my headlights and i was in down town tempe and people kept honking at me to turn them on and there were police everywhere πŸ™ƒ i just flipped out and drove home 🏑... with a dozen cupcakes 🧁 from sprinkles!!!πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‡πŸ€·‍♀️ my sister was happy and so were the teachers at LCA!!! πŸ€­πŸ€—πŸ˜™
.
I told my brother that fixes my car, John i need new headlights!!! He flips something and they come on shining bright! He's like there's nothing wrong with your headlights,  you had turned them off, there's a reason WHY i keep them automatically on for you, sooooo they're always on since i know you'll forget!!! Ooooops!!! 🀷‍♀️πŸ˜‡Whaaaaat a good brother!!!
.
Anyway, i Hanna said she can't imagine me driving for postmates!!! I was liiiiiiike well apparently neither can some of my customers!!!πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ‘
.
Buuuuuut somehow I'm making REALLY GOOD TIPS!!! Soooooooo far the largest tip ive gotten was from this college dude that was superrrrrr rude to me buuuuuut i just smiled and said to have a good evening and enjoy his food and he left me a $43 dollar tip!!! πŸ€‘πŸ’°πŸ€‘πŸ™Œ
.
I actually love driving, even if everyone else doesn't like my driving, annnnnnd i love seeing new places and its constantly changing and new...Anyway, it's just a extra job thats fun, easy way to make extra cash without being tied down...we all know Mary likes her freedom!!!😝
If anybody wants to drive for postmates, please use my referral code and help me get some more extra cash!!!
.
Annnnnnnd next time yOu have some crazy experience with your postmates delivery, just remember, IT COULD BE ME!!!😜 SOOOOOOOO LEAVE A GOOD TIP ANYWAY!!!πŸ™ƒπŸ€‘

Eye of the storm...

And in the middle of the war,
 You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, 
when my sails are torn 
Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm
.
When the solid ground is falling out from underneath my feet Between the black skies, and my red eyes, I can barely see
When I realize I've been sold out by my friends and my family
.
I can feel the rain reminding me
In the eye of the storm, 
You remain in control 
In the middle of the war, 
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm
.
When my hopes and dreams are far from me, And I'm runnin' out of faith I see the future, I picture, slowly fade away
And when the tears of pain and heartache
Are pouring down my face
I find my peace in Jesus' name
.
In the eye of the storm 
You remain in control 
In the middle of the war,
 You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor, 
when my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me 
In the eye of the storm
My only hope is to trust You

LOST???

Have you ever been lost?

 Do you remember as a child walking through the store with your parents and then you get distracted and stop to look at the toys or candy? You think your parent's are still with you as you stop and look, BUUUUUT then all of the sudden you look up and your parent's are GONE!!! You go into panick mode and started running around frantically looking for your parent's...THIS IS THE FEAR OF A CHILD THAT IS LOST!!!

.
However, one July, back quite a few years ago, while we were in the Bahamas, my sister and I took one day to spend at the beach, we had an absolute grand time, which I will STILL be blogging about, BUUUUUT just we were packing everything up and getting ready to head back to the cruise ship, SOMETHING HAPPENED!!!
.
My sis looked around as we were pickup our bags and says, Mary, WHERE IS MARY JO??? I was like, Ummmmm...Idk! We look around at first just figuring that she had walked a little ways down the beach, buuuut everywhere we walked, she was STILL NOT THERE!!! We looked and looked and looked!!! Buuuuuut we couldn't find her!!! We called out her name buuuuut STILL there was NO RESPONSE!!!
.
My sister was like what if she is drowning? What if someone kiddnapped her? The beach was jam-paced with people and By now my sister had gone into total and complete FREAK-OUT-PANICK MODE!!! She was crying hysterically and just running around a total mess! (I was scared, BUUUUT not that scared! 1. MJ HATEd the ocean and REFUSEd to go near it without being held...so I knew she wasn't drowning in it!!! 2. She had WAAAAAAAY to much attitude to EVERRR go with a stranger without a HUUUUUUGE fight!) 
.
So I happened to find a really nice Bahamian man, I told him what had happened and he said NOT to worry, we were going to find her! And he stopped right there in the middle of his beach job and started praying with me...
.
Annnnnnd right as he was praying with us...there comes MJ, just strolling up without a care in the world! We were like, WHAT HAPPENED??? WHERE WERE YOU??? She is just like, I went to the bathroom up the hill! My sis is like, YOU NEVER TOLD ME!!! You CAN'T JUST LEAVE US LIKE THAT!
.
 My sis WAS SOOOOO RELIEVED!!! She had her hand on her heart and she told me that she can't even begin to explain the PANICK she felt when she couldn't find MJ! She said that the horror and the fear she felt at the thought of losing her daughter, she said she just honestly couldn't even explain how she felt! She has NEVER in all her life felt that way!
.
THAT GOT ME THINKING...
I wonder if that is the way God feels, when one of HIS children are lost! THINK ABOUT IT!!! How do you think God feels, when one of us have drifted away from him?! Do you realize JUST HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO GOD??? He loves each and everyone of us so much!
.
"What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?..."
.
The heart of God is hurting for you!!! Yes he is God, and he knows EVERYTHING, buuuuut at the same time, Do you realize that God is searching for you? He is frantically, desperately looking to find you!!! Maybe you are like MJ and you don't even realize that you are lost? BUUUUT God, he knows right where you are at...HE IS CALLING YOUR NAME!!! 
.
He is hoping you will listen...hoping you will hear him!!! Or maybe you are like that little kid in the store, you didn't mean to get lost...you just got distracted...you only stopped for a minute...buuuut somehow, you sight of your father, either way, JESUS IS LOOKING FOR YOU!!!
.
"...And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost..."
.
Do you know the relief you will bring to the heart of God when you are found??? It doesn't matter where you have been or what you have done, He JUST WANTS HIS CHILD BACK!!! You don't have to stay lost...
LET JESUS FIND YOU!!!
.
  "...I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. (Luke 15:4-7)

Which is your favorite πŸ€”?!

Which gospel is your favorite????
I've neverrrrr really thought about it before, buuuuuut last night in our Bible study with Jestina, Denae went over how the 4 gospels specialize in certain ways! 
.
Mathew- Clear and factual, straight to tge point, geanologies and the prophesies fulfilled.
.
Mark- action packed, jumps right into the ministry and miracles of Christ
.
Luke- human interests, focus on the gentiles, details of a doctor and appeals to the heart ❤. 
.
John- focuses on ths mystery of God, the supernatural, deity of who Jesus is and revelation of Him is emphasized!
.
I've neverrrrr really thought about which gospel is my favorite πŸ€” buuuuuut i realized that it's John! Ive just always really enjoyed that book πŸ“–,  "in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God" i would've thought that my favorite would've been Mark for the adventure or Luke for ths human interests, buuuuuut i guess above everything else, more than adventurer or love for people, i am a wanderer, a dreamer, plus John's just a good writer too, i love πŸ’™ how he says stuff, so beautifully!!! He wrote my favorite scripture, which I'll save for another post! 
.
What's your favorite gospel???
Let me know and why!!! If you don't know, get to reading!!! ;) Maryfranceswriting@gmail.com

You guys, I have some absolutely HUGE and exciting news!!! As of May 13th, 2021, there will be two NEW GINTYS!!! ONE BOY AND ONE GIRL!!!!
TWINS!!!

My brother Abe and his wife Grace are FINALLY officially adopting my niece and nephew, Kyle and Chelsea!!! We have all waited a really, really, really, REALLY looooooong time for this to become a reality!!!
.
The process was going on and on and on and one day, during Friday night prayer meeting, Kyle raised his hand asked Pastor to pray that they would be able to get adopted. ONE WEEK LATER, they got the good news that they would be able to adopt them!!!
.
Buuuuuuut they weren't given a date so since then we've still b
een waiting and waiting and WAITING!!! Then last week my brother took his family to Chili's to eat and he told Chelsie to pray for their food before they ate. So she prayed for the food, then randomly said, and that we will be adopted SOON!!!
.
ONE HOUR LATER:
They got the email from the state letting them know the date of the adoption!!!! Oh to have the faith of a child when we pray!!! Some people wanna make sure an adult prays for their prayer request, I'm like, NOOOOOOOOO JUST LEAVE IT TO THE KIDS!!!! 
                                    We gotta have faith like these kids!!!.
I'm just over here like, HEY twins...how about you pray for...

Cook with the Gintys!!!

One of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE foods is ravioli!!! Every Easter since my mom has died, my brother John and I have made these homemade ravioli together!!! I'm not really sure WHY we started the year she died, i think it may have been something to keep myself busy from grief, thats kinda how I deal with sadness- I just find stuff to do!!!!
The results were pretty amazing though and I know my mom would be proud that we learned how to make homemade ravioli do deal with her death!!! LOL 
.
You guys, homemade ravioli is soooooooooooo much better than store bought-EXCEPT one brand- I'll tell you all that  brand in a MARY RECCOMENDS Post!!!

For the full recipe you can go to my brother's cooking website, they also have a printable version too!!!

April Fools 2021!!!!

Soooooooooooooo OF COURSE I can NOT go for a year without pulling April Fools Jokes!!! Now from an expert April Fools Prankster, its ALWAYS best to get people with something that is some what believable!!! 
.
Like the year I told my sister I had blown the engine on my car...THAT WAS VERY BELIEAVABLE!!! Telling people I'm about to get married...NOT SO MUCH!!! Hee, hee!!!
Weeeeeeeeeeeeellll this year I got three people by texting them and asking them if they had gotten the 4th stimulus check??? It was supposed to be $5000 this time!!! I got Anali, Hanna and Denae!!! Hanna was like, I haven't even gotten the third one! Anali was lecturing about how our country is going to be in so much debt, buuuuuuuuut EXCITED!!! Denae and had just gotten her third one sooooo it was soooooooooooooo PERFECT!!! She said that she had determined that NO ONE would get her today! She had made it through THE WHOLE DAY, teaching at our church school and everything, THEN BAMMMM...Mar Bear got her!!! OH AND JANELLIE BEAN!!! Even after I said it April 1st she was still asking me about it!!! Heeeeeeyyyy when you have 4 kids, I'd be excited 50000X6 theyd basically be rich!!! BAHAHAHAAA
.
I did NOT trick my sister, Jen L. or STULTZ!!! I always feel like April Fool's day is NOT a full success UNLESS I get him!!! Which has ONLY HAPPENED ONCE!!!
.
It was the last time April Fools day was on a Sunday, we had friends and family and I had made some dessert. Well when we got home I waited a few hours then I sent a text asking how he was feeling? And also to please pray because when I was making my dessert for church I had used one rotten egg but I didn't want to waste all the ingredients so I just kept mixing and had hoped for the best! Buuuuut now we were taking my sister to the ER and I really hoped no one else at church would get sick!!!
.
Weeeeeeellll apparently THE BEST time to get him is when he wakes up from his nap!!! You guys I got this BIG O loooooooong text lecturing me one being a RESPONSIBLE COOK!!! It was literally soooooooooooooooooooooooooo AMAAAAZINGLY AWESOME!!!TI

Like I said, THE KEY to getting people is by saying BELIEVABLE STUFF!!! Me stirring and hoping for the best is a VERY LIKELY STORY!!! Heeeeeeeyyyy anyone wanna try my brownies????;)


DID YOU GET ANYONE THIS YEAR???? Maryfranceswriting@gmail.com
