ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
JANUARY 11TH, 2010
AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR PRETTY LADY TODAY!
May the dear Lord bless you today and always!
I’m back to showing you some old pictures again today. These were all from 2008 when I first started camping. The picture above is mid April and as you can see it doesn’t have much green in it. I think it’s better than the all white scenery we have right now. After the winter snows melt we always have the big leaf clean up at the campground. It’s often wet and muddy there too.
By May there is a lot more green showing on the ground and in the trees
We now begin our journey in this ordinary time after Christmas and before Lent. It is a great time to be renewed in our call to follow Jesus and to listen carefully to how he will show us how to follow him
Life presents many opportunities to grow, change and choose direction. Whatever lies before me, I can be sure that God is in the midst of it
By July things are really green. Here is DS#2 fishing when he visited
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
This recipe isn’t really new at all but it is one of my favorite quick and easy dinners to fix. The babes didn’t like having the peas added to this dish so I’d often just serve them on the side. I would also add a tablespoon of butter to the cooked noodles before mixing in the other ingredients.
1 lb. noodles, cooked
1 can peas
1 can tuna
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix all ingredients together in greased casserole. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until browned. Makes 6-8 servings.
We pray, Lord, for those wh
o are going
to a new job
and for those who are going to work for the last time today;
for the emergency services who will travel at high speed
on land, water or in the air, to brin
g help to ot
for those starting a new life as they move house;
for those travellin
g to or from prison;
for people who will go into hospital today;
for young people on their way to school, college and university;
for those who are lost on the jo
urney of life;
for those who will die today and make their final journey.
On all these peo
ple we ask
your blessing, Lord.
Please pray for God's
our troops and HIS wisdom
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them a
y protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our
Lots of sunshine in June
Today and tomorrow will still bring us a chance of snow flurries they say but come Wednesday through Friday we should see warmer days and some sunshine too. I’m thinking that maybe this will be what they call our January thaw. It’s been over a month since we’ve had temps above free
The steamy days of August often bring tent campers to the campground. The tent area is just on the other side of the road from where our campers are.
We’ve had a lot of trouble getting grass to grow in this area. Last year we did some reseeding so I’m hoping it looks a little better there than this picture is showing
