ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
NOBEMBER 6TH, 2009
It's FINALLY FRIDAY…
I am imagining that this is what our campground looks like about now. When we left there in October there were still a lot of leaves on the trees. Here the trees are pretty bare.
It was a windy day yesterday and it was a bit warmer than I thought it would be. It warmed up to 50 by afternoon.
A God of Justice
Lord, I praise and magnify you, who is just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. . . .
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
SWEET POTATO FRIES
Sweet potatoes make these golden oven fries much healthier than the fried white potatoes we all grew up eating. If you want to add a spicy touch, use Hungarian hot paprika.
Or if you are like me, I’d prefer a little cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on mine
Prep time: 5 minutesCook time: 30 minutes
Ingredients 2 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed and dried1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil1/4 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon paprika
Instructions Heat oven to 425° F.
Slice each sweet potato lengthwise into 8 pieces. Toss with oil, salt, and paprika. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until lightly browned on the bottom, about 15 minutes.
Turn slices and bake until bottom is browned and potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes more. Serve hot.
ATTIRE FOR TODAY
The boys have the right idea…jackets are in order, but not the shorts I think. After a very chilly start they are saying it may warm up to 50 today.
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And pass it on to other folk
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
This little fellow is now 5 years old and it’s very hard to believe how time flies. It is a beach sort of day for me… I have to do the payroll today which is one day early as we have Veteran’s Day next week and in order for everyone to get paid on time I do it early.
This will be an easy one as all our guys were laid off this week. With the beginning of our cold weather, our work is slowing down.
COUNTING THE DAYS
