Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all of the earth. Psalm 108:5
I used that verse as an opening simply because I liked it. It reminds me that God's glory does shine around the earth. This weekend is when we are celebrating His Son's miraculous rising from the dead after he died for all of our sins.
Earlier this week, we had invited our friends Gary and Carla over for dinner. Fortunately, they graciously accepted our invitation. We don't get together with them often. Marc has known them for many years now, and I have gotten to know them through Marc. Gary and Marc have run together every Tuesday and Thursday morning, assuming they're not injured or sick. They also don't run in stormy weather, but they DO faithfully run in snow, ice, and extreme cold. Gary teaches Chemistry at our local liberal arts college, and Carla is a teacher in the local school district. Gary also is a part of the investment club that Marc and some other of you bloggers' husbands are in.
Neither Gary nor Carla had seen Luke since he was probably around a month old. So, he definitely had changed in their eyes. Carla commented several times about how much he looks like Marc -- like many of you also say.
Here's a cute photo of Carla showing Luke various pictures in one of his books. Luke watched intently.
For dinner, we had chicken fajitas. I didn't take a photo of the "fajita making process," but I did capture a simple photo of the colorful peppers I used in the fajitas -- I LOVE colorful vegetables (Marc probably doesn't really care too much if the veggies are colorful or not). We are definitely onion lovers in this household, so I added quite a bit of onion to the fajita mixture.
This may sound a bit strange, but to go with the fajitas (a Mexican dish), I made an Asian salad -- the oriental salad that is famous in my family. Watch soon for a post with the recipe -- probably within the next week or so.
I'll leave you in suspense with the recipe and process, but here's a final photo.
**If you've ever been in a Community Life Group (small group) with us or have ever been to our home for dinner, you've probably had it. I make it often because it's such a favorite. But, like I said earlier, watch for a near future post with the recipe.
To finish off dinner, we ate Angel Food Cake and mixed berries. Yum!!!!
Then, we had what I would call meaningful conversation among the four of us -- after Luke went to bed. Marc and I love "fellowshipping" with other believers. What a wonderful evening!
I'll end this post with a really wonderful photo of Carla and Luke.
A trip back in time
