Revival This Week

Revival went well tonight and we had a good turnout. The GuitarMan and his college roomate/best bud/bandmate led us in some awesome praise! They sang Blessed be the Name of the Lord (per Mama's request!), I Can Only Imagine, Lead Me to the Cross, and another song that they wrote JUST LAST NIGHT! They called me last night and wanted me to hear what they were working on. I always love to hear their music so they played it for me over the phone. I said, "You have to finish that and play it tomorrow!" So it was amazing. After church they played some more for a while and folks stuck around and listened. They have several upcoming opportunities to play at various churches and they have a big 3-day retreat in Panama City, Florida coming up, too. I am so proud of my boys and excited to see how God will use them!

Tomorrow night we have a guy coming from another town to sing. Bro. Mickey will continue his series. Tonight he spoke on teamwork and how we each have our place of service for God. If we are truly in love with Jesus then we will all want to serve Him. That will flow out into our churches and communities. Wow, if all Christians would grasp that and allow true revival to take place in their hearts just what could we accomplish for Christ?

But I don't want to!

I'm having an attitude problem. I'm looking around at what needs to be done. I have the desire for the work to be done but I have no desire to actually do the work! Therein lies the problem.
I think we could truthfully apply that to a lot of areas in our life.

We want our church to have "programs" but we don't want to actually work in them.

We want to be healthy but we don't want to work or sacrifice to get that way.

Same thing with weight...(don't even want to go there LOL!)

We want our children to behave, make good choices, etc but we are tired.

We want our homes to look nice but don't want to do housework, yardwork, work!

Ugh, so what to do, what to do? I'm telling myself the answer right now as I type.

Get over yourself! Sometimes you have to lay aside the selfish, less important desires and just do the harder thing in order to get results and have the real desires of your heart. I guess that's where I am headed now. I'm …

Thanksgiving Catch Up

How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was very good. My oldest son was able to come home. We were afraid this might be the first Thanksgiving he wasn't with us but he was able to arrange his schedule to make it home. His band was away shooting a music video. What might have taken all week, they managed to do in one full day! He headed homeWednesday and stayed until Sunday.

My guys were able to do quite a lot of hunting over the holiday. They both love to fish and hunt. We've been very blessed that our last home and this one, there are several places for them to enjoy the outdoors. We love deer meat. It is healthy and really helps to stretch the budget. When prepared correctly you might even think it is beef!

The kids and I got a little creative with our vegetables on Thanksgiving day and created a fun centerpiece. My youngest named it Pluto. ;)

Since I had a smoked turkey and a brown sugar ham, we opted for sandwiches for lunch and ate our Thanksgiving Dinner for supper that night.…

Must have jinxed that...

So I said in my last post that so far the new recipes had been well received. Last night's meal...not so much. I should have known better than to say that  LOL! I liked it well enough and so did my youngest daughter. But the husband wasn't so fond of it. It was a Mediterranean recipe that had whole wheat rotini, grilled salmon, tomato, artichoke, olives and garlic. It also called for white wine but I used chicken broth instead. I think we are going to try it one more time with a few tweaks. Maybe a half box of noodles instead of a full box and add some canned tomatoes. I even thought about using quinoa instead of noodles since we all love it. I think extra artichokes and olives might be good, too. If that doesn't work, then this one will be discarded. It's funny but my husband hasn't been too crazy about any Mediterranean recipe I've ever tried through the years. When you look at the separate ingredients, he ought to love them. And the heart health aspect makes…
