INGREDIENTS FOR THE OREO COOKIES:
COOK TIME 10 mins   TOTAL TIME 2 hrs10 mins
                                      
1 3D4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder,(black or Dutch cocoa)                
1D4 teaspoon salt           
1 Cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter - at room temperature    
1 large egg  

THE BUTTERCREAM: 
1/2Cup unsalted butter - at room  temp                                                 
 2 Cups powdered sugar      
1D4 tsp salt    
 1D2 tsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE THE COOKIES:
Sift together the flour, cocoa  powder, and salt into a medium bowl.
Cream together the butter and sugar in the bowl of a large mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the egg, and mix until well-combined. Turn the speed to low and add the flour, mixing until just a few streaks of flour remain. Finish mixing the dough by hand, scraping down the bottom and sides of the bowl with a spatula.

Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper or waxed paper until it is less than 1D4-inch thick. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes, until firm.

Preheat oven to 350° Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Take the rolled dough, and use a small circular cutter to cut out 2 circles of dough. If you have a cookie stamp, press it firmly into the top of
each cookie to make an impression. If it is sticking, dust it lightly with cocoa powder in between cookies.  Place the cookies on the baking
sheets and bake for 9 minutes until they've slightly puffed up and
lost the raw shine in the middle. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet
for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Take the scraps of dough, re-roll it, and cut out more circles.
Repeat until all of the dough is usedyou may need to chill it briefly until it's firm enough to work with again.
You should get about 48 cookies from this recipe.    
                
TO MAKE THE BUTTERCREAM AND ASSEMBLE:
Combine the butter, powdered sugar, and salt in the bowl of a large
stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until
the powdered sugar is moistened, then turn to medium speed and
mix for 1-2 minutes, until it has a lighter color and fluffy texture.
Don't over- mix, because the more you mix, the more air you¼ll beat into the buttercream, and the softer it will be. It still needs to be somewhat
firm so it doesn't squish out the sides of the cookie. Spread a generous tablespoon of frosting onto a cookie and press down with a second cookie until the frosting spreads out to the edges. Repeat until all of the cookies are assembled. Gourmet homemade Oreos can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days, or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

An Anchor for My Soul
Hebrews 6:19-20
International Children's Bible
19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and strong.
It enters behind the curtain in the Most Holy Place in heaven.
20 Jesus has gone in there ahead of us and for us.
He has become the high priest forever, a priest like Melchizedek.


An Anchor for our Soul& this description is truly amazing, and goes along with our weak imagination: How can we be attached to God and the most Holy Place in heaven when we are here on earth?  When the captain
throws the anchor in the depth of the sea, the ship is attached to the anchor.  The ship is tied to the anchor which is in the depth of the sea.  Likewise, Christ entered the heavens as a secure anchor to the ship
(us)His Church which is standing in the rough sea, and He tied us to God.  The ship (us - the Church), in spite of being in the middle of the trouble
of this world, is attached and tied with the heavenly peace, where God
and Jesus are present.  So don't be afraid when things around us seem
so crazy and scary.  Read your bible and get to truly know God, pray to God - He hears your prayers, knows your fears and your joys. 
Stay anchored to Jesus and know that he is your solid Anchor!

BOOKS OF THE BIBLE

New Teaching Study Material for Old Testament


LESSON SNAPSHOT:  God wants us to know what 's in the Bible and where to find it.

There are 66 Books in the Bible.
Old Testament:  39 books
New Testament:  27 books

Think about it like this:  there are 3 letters in Old and there are 9 letters in Testament - join the 3 & 9 together and you get 39.
If you take and same 3 & 9 and make them 3 X 9 that equal 27. 
The number of books in the New Testament 27! 
Wasn't that Easy!

God says the Bible is like a sword.  Just like a sword takes practice to use, we need to practice using God's Word.  One of the ways we can do that is by knowing what God has included in the Bible and where we can find it.

Memory Verse: God has breathed life into all Scripture.  It is useful for teaching us what is true.  It is useful for correcting our mistakes.  It is useful for making our lives whole again.  It is useful for training us to do what is right.  2 Timothy 3:16 NIrV

***********************************************************************

Summary:  The first five books of the Bible tell us how the world began, what God expects of us (the law), and how God put a plan in action to set things right.  It is sometimes called the Pentateuch. 

Bottom Line: The first five books of the Bible tell how God created the world and chose a special people.

Bottom Line:  The books of history teach us what happends when we obey or disobey God.

Next 12 books: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel,
2 Sameul, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther

Summary:  The Major Prophets were men who delivered God's messages to his people.  Three of them warned the people to turn back to God.  The fourth one spoke while the children of God were in exile and reminded them that God was still in control.

Summary:  The Minor Prohets didn't write as much as the "majors", but they all delivered important messages.  They reminded the people of God's love and forgiveness, and tried to warn them not to make the same mistakes their ancestors had and they spoke about the coming Messiah.

Bottom Line:  The Minor Prophets delivered important messages about God's judgment and God's plan of salvation.
