Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

I Have Nothing....

Actually, I have more than I could ever ask for. BUT, I'm drawing an absolute BLANK as to what to blog about today. We're having a nice, calm January....

So, here are a few ramblings. I'm typing this as I enjoy my favorite hot cup of tea.

1) If you've been "following" our family for any length of time or if you know Luke in person, you know that Luke LOVES hats -- all different types of hats.

His latest discovery is Marc's taekwondo helmet....Pretty funny, if you ask me.

2) I'm doing a "switch-a-roo" on tonight's and tomorrow night's supper.

So, for tonight, we're having a boxed Macaroni Grill meal....

We've had these meals before. They're quite tasty. We recommend them.

You can purchase at Wal-Mart, and if you're local, Dillon's.

3) I recently discovered this cream for my coffee....Coffeehouse Inspirations. Perhaps you've had one before. This one, Hazelnut Cream, is quite tasty. I bought it because Wal-Mart had them on sale. I'm really hoping it wasn't on sale because the inventory's not moving. Then, there would be a chance of it being there no longer.

4) When Luke and I were on our weekly grocery trip the other day at Wal-Mart, we found this by the poultry....

Philadelphia Cooking Creme (not a misspelling, according to the package)....

I think, basically, it's a cream cheese type mixture. There were several different varieties. They all had a recipe on back.

So, on an impulse, but WITHOUT going over our grocery budget, I bought one. I'll be fixing the enchiladas next week.

Stay tuned! I'll do a review.

5) Luke received THIS BOOK before he was even born....it was a gift from some friends of our's.

It's a cute book, and Luke really likes it right now. We read it quite a bit. It's a "Lift-the-Flap Adventure Book!"

My only issue is some of the rhyming. It's sometimes hard to read.

Example: On the bank, or under water, slithery, sliding, I am otter....

(Try saying the "S" words fast....NOT EASY).

How about this one?

Strutting through a friendly flock. Spread those feathers peacock....

(This one, you have to be careful....It's easy to accidentally say words you shouldn't say).

Did I mention that this post contained a bunch of ramblings? See what I mean?
