How to cook Pinto Beans

Growing up here in the southern part of Kentucky, we learned early how to cook pinto beans and corn bread. They are commonly called soup beans here. We grew up on,… well, I would not call it a farm. Not sure what to label it but we raised farm animals and a large garden.

The reason I say that is because we had many of the country pets and critters but not as many as a large farm would have. I guess you would just call it,.. Back Roads Living or Country Life! [Read More...]

Unforgiveness

 

Causes of Unforgiveness

Unforgiveness is a bitterness from within man. Born of our flesh and inherited from our ever increasing pride before we become born again. Those who are unforgiving are never really at peace with themselves. To be an unforgiving person is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die. It never hurts the one you who is not forgiven near as much as the one holding the grudge. [Read More...]
