Thankful Thursday

For this  Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for the following: Hot Dogs & Grills:  The same lady at work that got us nice office chairs, worked in a line item for a grill for us to use right outside the office.  I’m not sure how she did it, but yesterday we ate hot dogs on…

Thankful Thursday

To be honest, when I realized it was time for Thankful Thursday, I felt a little resistant.  Everything at work has hit an all time high lately, and I feel like my thought life and sleep, and everything around me is suffering as a result.  I feel overwhelmed. I feel like there isn’t an end…

Fiesta Night

I made these beauties for dinner this week.  The geeky part about them is that I found the recipe on a banner ad and I was one of the few people to actually roll over the ad to find and print the recipe.  Let me know if you are interested in the recipe and I’ll…

Growing up

Yesterday my pastor talked about Christian maturity, in reference to Phillipians 3:20-21.  Basically in this passage, Paul states that “our citizenship is in heaven”. With this in mind, he asked, “What will stir your soul in a way that would cause you to live out your citizenship in heaven?”.  And then today I read from…

Thankful Thursday

Wow.  I can’t believe it is time for another Thankful Thursday, so I guess one thing I’m thankful for is that this week is going fast!  Here’s my list: Olive Garden on a Wednesday: The way that I was raised was to view restaurants like Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Outback as fancy restaurants.  Now,…

Preparing for Sunday

I realize that my familiarity with the gospel has robbed me of truly knowing and letting it impact my life. In preparation for Sunday, I am going to be reading in Luke 22:1-53. The following is an important quote from my reading today, “Instead the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the…

Thankful Thursday

For this Thankful Thursday, I’m not going to do a list, but rather a flow of thoughts about what I’m thankful for this week. This week it is my husband.  More and more I realize why God put him into my life, and more and more I’m understanding that he is helping me in my…

Pressing On…

Just wanted to share the words of Paul in Philippians 3:12: “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it….
