for KING & COUNTRY - "The Proof Of Your Love"

Hi everyone, I saw this video a couple days ago, here is some scripture to go   along with it!!
"So let my life be the proof, the proof of your love"

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal  . And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries,and all knowledge, and though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (love) I am nothing . And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and thought I give my body to be burned and have not charity ( love), it  profiteth me nothing. Charity ( love) suffereth long, and is kind, charity ( love) envieth not, charity ( love) vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

Lemon Meringue PIE!!!!

Hey y'all, So I have been wanting something lemony lately, so guess what I decided to make?!?!!? LEMON MERINGUE PIE!! ( yes I love pie)  Here is my lemon meringue pie.......

It turned our perfect!! Okay here's the recipe!!..

Pie Crust 

1 1/2c. flour 
1/2tsp. salt
1/3c. shortening ( I use butter)
3 to 4 tbl. cold water

Preheat oven to 375* Roll out your pie crust and place in your pie plate and bake crust for 15 minuets or until lightly browned!
(let  your pie crust cool completely before adding lemon filling to pie shell)!!!  


Lemon Filling:

  • 4 egg yolks (reserve whites for meringue)
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 (9-inch) pre-baked pie shell
  • 1 recipe Meringue, recipe follows


Adjust the oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Whisk egg yolks in medium size mixing bowl and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine cornstarch, water, sugar, and salt. Whisk to combine. Turn heat on medium and, stirring frequently, bring mixture to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and gradually, 1 whisk-full at a time, add hot mixture to egg yolks and stir until you have added at least half of the mixture.
Return egg mixture to saucepan, turn heat down to low and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and gently stir in butter, lemon juice, and zest until well combined. Pour mixture into pie shell and top with meringue while filling is still hot. Make sure meringue completely covers filling and that it goes right up to the edge of the crust. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until meringue is golden. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Make sure pie is cooled completely before slicing.

Meringue Topping:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 pinch cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
Place egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form and then gradually add sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Use to top lemon filling.
Yield: topping for 1 (9-inch) pie
