Sausage, potato & spinach soup...

 
This may be one of my favorite meals I've ever mad!
So flavorful and good. 

I served it with some crusty bread and ate until I felt I would pop!

Really amazing. It's a keeper.

Oil pulling...

 

The girls and I have been oil-pulling for the past several days. 


It's really gross, lol. 

But, there are supposedly so many health benefits to oil - pulling 

(Google it!)

A stitch in time...



Have you ever looked back at an old picture and thought,

"Oh! I forgot we had that!" Or, "Oh, that's right..."


Well, this morning as I was waiting to go to church,

The above is what I saw. 


I thought, that is a perfect little vignette of my life at this moment in time. 

I should capture this. 

Why?

So that maybe in the future si will have one of those "Oh!" Moments. 

Or, so that long after I'm gone, and someone is trying to explain to my great-grandkids

what a cell phone was, 

they can look at a picture like this and see how we used to carry them 

and what our jewelry looked like, etc. 


It's about history 

Passing things down.

Looking back and remembering. 


I am a huge history buff.

Particularly personal or family history. 

Family trees. 

I love it. 

All of the pictures we have now, 

Someone I. The past thought it was a dumb picture to keep. 

Not me. 

I love reflective moments. 

Little stitches in time.

So much truth...





 

Love notes...


So there's this game that 
The Lord and I play. 
Yes, I said that right. 

A little backstory...

I always used to see the same numbers whenever I look at a clock. 

I mean ALL the time; several times per day. 

So, I was talking to God about it and asked if it was a sign for something. 

I mean, it was just too frequent to not be SOMETHING. 

I told God that because I didn't know of it being for anything else, I was going to consider it a personal little love note whenever I saw repeating numbers on a clock. 

I know that He loves me all the time, but this would be something just for me. 
Like a wink when no one is looking. 

Whenever I see these numbers I say, "I love you Lord, thank you for loving me."

Well, I still see them all the time. I would venture to say that 9 times out of 10, when I look at the clock, it will be that way. They are the bright spots in my day. 

And in a perfect example of God's faithfulness, 
The other night I had a mini-crisis here at home with one of the kids. 
This was something that freaked me out and panicked me like I can't even explain  to you. 
My jug was shaken. 
I sat down, silently praying and seeking 
His wisdom,
and I click on my phone. 

The above picture is what I saw. 
:)

I was reminded that it was all going to be alright. He was going before me. 
And he loves me. 

<3
