Psalm 34:1-3

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly.

He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.


“God gave you a gift of 86, 400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say ‘Thank you'”? (William Ward )

Lord, every single gift comes from You…“Lift my gaze to see life from Your perspective. Help me to understand-and treasure-every good thing You send…”(From James 1:7)   One Thousand Gifts


I have just started to memorize and meditate on Psalm 34 in NKJV.  This is what I have down so far:

Psalm 34:1-3

New King James Version (NKJV)

 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.


I looked at Psalm 34:1-3 in the KJV, The Message, the Amplified Bible, The New Living Translation, NIV and combined them for me to think about it some more and personalize it for myself:

 1 I will bless and extol God, my precious Lord  every chance I get, all the time ; my lungs expand with his praise continually overflowing from my lips.
Paula, do you and will you really choose to bless God at ALL times? Even and most especially when things are not going well?   Will you allow Him to do His work in you so there is a continual overflow of praise, The Life of Christ filling up your life and flowing out to those around you?  Nothing fake–just the genuine real McCoy?  You can not do this work in yourself but He surely can.
 2 I live and breathe God; I will boast only in the Lord, I will glory in the Lord
  Be humble and  confess your pride.  Even if things aren’t going well, and you are  afflicted, or feeling helpless hear this, take heart, be happy, be glad, rejoice:
..,letting go of all pride and self life, not seeking to impress others, boasting only in the Lord, immersing myself in God to listen to Him, HEAR Him, be glad in Him. 3 Join me in spreading the news;  magnify and glorify Him with me, come, let us tell of His greatness
   together let’s get the word out and exalt His name.
–Let’s MAGNIFY Him, GLORIFY Him, lift Him up and tell of His greatness!

“You’re beautiful.

You are treasured.

You are loved.

You are His. “

819. On Bets’ frig: “God gave you a gift of 86, 400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say ‘Thank you'”? (William Ward )

  1. Dear Paula, it was nice meeting you tonight. Very inspiring blog you have. It is a joy to read it. May you continue making progress, and God speed in your recovery. Blessings, Makita


  2. Dear Makita,
    I’m glad you got to stop by my blog. 🙂 I so enjoyed meeting you and the group last night! It was neat to learn that we have the same oncologist too. Paula


  3. dear Paula,
    Please excuse any mistakes. i had injections in both wrists today for carpel tunnel and if possible my hands are even number than they have been. I loved the Pilsbury doughboy eulogy. it is hilrious. Hope you are feeling better. Is your strength coming back? Yes we must give every day and everything we posses to Jesus to use as He sees fit. It is not always easy,but it is rewarding when we can do it. God Bless. Kathy


  4. I hope the injections are helping with the carpal tunnel syndrome pain. That’s hard on top of the neuropathy.

    Yes, my strength is returning now that I am done with chemo and radiation. I’d appreciate prayer for whatever is causing respiratory symptoms: it might be laryngopharyngeal reflux, or allergies, or something else. Now I feel like I might be starting a sinus infection as well. I am trying some medication to see if that’ll resolve it. I know these are minor problems compared to what I could be dealing with right now–have lots to be grateful for. Paula
