It’s Better To Give Than To Receive

Hey everyone,

This Christmas season has got me thinking about something.

Growing up as a kid, I was the kid that liked the receive things but didn’t like giving things to others.

I was the kid that wanted a lot of presents to open Christmas morning.

As I got older, I started getting less and less on Christmas.

A verse in Acts caught my attention on this subject.

Acts 20:35 (KJV) says, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Through this verse, it’s more beneficial of me to give to others than to receive.

Jesus gave up his life on Earth so we can have a relationship with God.

There are people that need things that I can give to them (that I take for granted).

Recently, I have learned that it’s more important to help others that need something than wanting things that I don’t need.

However, I’m doing as much as I should be doing.

How can I be doing better at this?

  • Giving money each month to certain organizations I’m passionate about (e.g. feeding the hungry).
  • Volunteering at certain organizations and through church ministries.
  • Giving items I don’t need to other people that need them.
  • Helping others out that need my help.
  • Sharing my experiences with other people that are going through similar situations.

Please let me know how I can be better at giving.

Thank You and God Bless You,

Millennial Buddy

Cherry Yogurt Dessert Recipe

Hey everyone,

I’ve had followers on Instagram wanting me to do more recipe posts.

Here’s one that is interesting.

As you noticed in a previous post, I got greek yogurt from my grocery haul this month.

Here is the link to that post:

My Grocery Haul For December

However, I accidentally bought a couple of tubs of plain greek yogurt (thinking they were Vanilla Greek Yogurt).

I didn’t want to drive back to the store to exchange the tubs of yogurt.

I had a can of cherry pie filling I didn’t use last month.

So, I decided to be creative and mix it with the plain greek yogurt.

Here’s what I used:

  • Spoon
  • Can opener
  • Container to put the mixed yogurt in
  • 32 ounce containter of Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 21 ounce can of cherry pie filling

Here’s how I made the dessert:

  • I opened the container of plain greek yogurt and put the yogurt in the big container.

  • I opened the can of cherry pie filling and put it on top of the plain greek yogurt.

  • I mixed the two together until the yogurt looked like it was mixed thoroughly.

 

Here’s how the dessert looked:

It was very delicious.

Please let me know what you think about this recipe.

Thank You and Have A Great Day,

Why I Celebrate Christmas

Hey everyone,

As we all know, the Christmas season is here.

Parties; family get-togethers; shopping and wrapping gifts; busy stores; cooking and baking; cleaning; eating; Christmas shows, movies, and specials on TV; decorating the house; special events going on at church; Christmas music playing everywhere; caroling; traveling; giving and helping needy families.

As you have noticed, a lot is going on this time of year.

It made me realize something.

Why am I celebrating a holiday that is stressful and chaotic?

To me, I do it to honor the birth of Jesus.

He is the one that God sent from Heaven to live a sinless life to die on the cross and rise on the third day, so that I can have eternal life with God.

Jesus paid for my sins (that I could not do on my own).

I celebrate Christmas to appreciate what Jesus has done in my life and thank God for his birth.

It’s not about presents, get-togethers, and decorations.

This time is meant to honor what God and Jesus did for me.

I didn’t deserve to have eternal life with God.

But God, thought me worthy of it through his son Jesus.

I have to remember that throughout the season or I won’t be appreciative of this holiday.

Please let me know what you think about Christmas.

Thank You and God Bless You,

Millennial Buddy

Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Hey everyone,

I wanted to share with you a recipe I made for Thanksgiving dinner.

It’s not healthy, but I figured they would be a good recipe to have next time you have a get together to attend (especially over Christmas).

Here’s the ingredients I used:

  • 16 ounce box of macaroni noodles
  • Cheese sauce
  • 16 ounce bag of shredded cheese
  • Microwaveable pasta boiler (If you want to boil a pot of water that’s fine)
  • Crockpot
  • Serving spoon

Here’s how I cooked the food:

I opened the box of noodles and put them in the microwaveable pasta boiler.

I filled the container up to the proper water line (so I had the right amount of water in there).

I put the container with water and noodles in the microwave for 27 minutes. (I didn’t put the lid on there).

I put the lid on the container and drained the water out of the pasta.

 

Once the noodles were cooked, I put them in the crockpot and added cheese sauce.

I added the bag of cheese to the mixture.

I mixed it all together.

I set the crockpot on low for 2 hours (I checked it periodically).

Here’s how it looked:

This is a great dish to take for get togethers.

Please let me know what you think of this dish and how it turned out for you (if you tried it).

Thank You and Have A Great Day,

Millennial Buddy

My Thanksgiving Traditions

Hey everyone,

Thanksgiving is this week.

Because of that, I will be doing 3 posts on Wednesday (I will not be posting on Thursday and Friday. Be on the lookout for that).

Today, I wanted to do something different.

I’m going to share with you all my favorite Thanksgiving traditions (some are the weekend of it).

Here are five of them:

  • Watching the parade on TV- It’s great seeing all of the cartoon character floats and the celebrities singing and dancing.
  • Watching college football games all weekend- It’s great seeing some of the rivalry games and end of season upsets.
  • Decorating my parents house for Christmas- Last year, I got to help my dad, stepmom, and sister decorate their house for Christmas. When we were decorating the tree, we had to unwrap each ornament (so everyone can share memories of that ornament).
  • Eating a lot of good food- I like eating the turkey my parents make each year; my mom’s stuffing; and my aunt’s sausage balls.
  • Helping feed needy families- For the past couple of years, I’ve helped my church create meals and meal boxes to give to needy families in the community. I like being able to give food to others who need it.

Please share with me your thanksgiving traditions.

Thank You and Have A Great Day,

Millennial Buddy
