For Today, the first Monday in June
Looking out my window I see a beautiful clear sunny day. After last week's rains, it is a most welcome sight.
I am thinking about the twins' birthday, today. I cannot believe how quickly age 2 came. They are looking so ... grown ... and I rejoice in their growth but feel a teensy bit sadness their babyhood is over.
I am thankful to have been involved in their lives this past year.
One of my favorite things is M&Ms. I have to allow room for 1/8 cup of them a day in my calorie count or I just can't do this losing weight thing.
I am wearing a peach shirt with an olive green cardi and jeans. My recent yard-sale find of a necklace and earrings with stones in shades of green completes the outfit.
I am creating a legacy. May it be a pleasing one.
I am reading "FerVent" by Priscilla Shirer. A friend and I are doing studying the book together.
I am hoping to see revival. We need it so badly. However, I'm of the opinion that it first has to start in our own lives.
I am learning just how resistant to change people are! May I ever be flexible, teachable, and willing to change.
In my kitchen are the makings for a birthday dinner that will include grilled hot dogs, deviled eggs, baked beans and a new recipe, Hawaiian Macaroni Salad. Thursday is Malia's birthday and she has requested an old recipe from her childhood, Garlic Cheese Chicken. I can't find anything like it online, so in my spare time (!) I will type it up for you. It uses that wonderful staple, Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. (Well, it uses the cheese packet.)
"Don't treat someone exactly as they treated you. Take the 'high road'." (from a sermon given by Rev. Kim Ferguson)
A moment from my day looks like this with these two:
Closing Notes: I'm struck anew by the beauty of the Word. Read James 1 and see if it doesn't minister to your soul ... and challenge you.
