ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
APRIL 10TH, 2010
Did you all hear that loud noise coming from Northern Ohio yesterday? In case you didn’t know it was caused by a pleasingly plump gray haired grand’ma’ driving home from her very last day of work. Oh yes it was me! I woo hoo’d all the way home.
I guess the reality of it all won’t set in till I don’t have to get up for work Monday morning.
I do thank the good Lord for giving me a job all those years, but I am so happy I never have to go back.
Keep your eyes open today, and see where God may be doing a good deed in unlikely places. God moves in mysterious ways, and he often chooses to work through people we may not expect
…Everyone who believes me will be able to do wonderful things.
By using my name they will force out demons,
and they will speak new languages.
They will handle snakes and will drink poison and not be hurt.
They will also heal sick people by placing their hands on them.
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Fridays at my house are usually pizza for dinner nights. But this Friday I went out for Mexican food with DD and her hubby. The food was very good so I thought I’d share a little Spanish cuisine with you all for a change.
Very often when my babes were home I’d fix Spanish Rice when we had tacos. Here is the recipe:
½ cup chopped green pepper
½ cup chopped onion
1 1/3 cup pre-cooked rice
¼ cup fat
1 beef bouillon cube
1 ¼ cup hot water
2 8 ounce cans seasoned tomato sauce
Cook green pepper, onion and rice in the hot fat stirring constantly till lightly browned. Dissolve bouillon cube in hot water. Add to rice along with the tomato sauce. Bring quickly to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered 5 minutes or until rice is tender.
Makes 5 servings
Jesus forgive me for the times I have rejected people based on my own assumptions and biases. Give me a heart like yours that can see the good in everyone
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.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
I read an article recently about wearing shoes in our homes. At my house no one is required to take off their shoes when they come in from outside. The only time I do so is if my boots are wet or snow covered and then I slip into my slippers or if I’ve been working in the yard and my shoes are grass or mud covered. I always have something on my feet and rarely go barefoot as my feet are more comfortable that way. It seems it is an upcoming trend to take off your shoes upon entering so that you don’t bring germs into your home.
It’s really not a new thing at all as my Mom did that for many years at their house. There was always a place right by the door where everyone left their shoes.
It doesn’t matter to me as I no longer have little ones around that might be crawling around on the floor to play. For young families though it might be a good consideration.
I received some lovely Spring flowers yesterday from DS#1 and family for my retirement. I can plant them outside and they should come up again next Spring.
DD and her hubby took me out to dinner after work too. DS#5 and his wife came too. It was a great day to celebrate. We did have lots of that salsa and chips while waiting for our dinner. I also heard from several others in my family and many friends wishing me all the best. I appreciate all the good thoughts for sure. Thank you everyone! I’ll probably be celebrating the rest of my life.
