Reading God's Word...


Reading and Enjoying God's Word

Reading the Word daily is a must to maintai
a healthy relationship with God.

Isn't it amazing how over the years you 
can read the same scripture 
and the meaning of it can change at that 
very moment when you need it the most.

Even though the words never really change.

Do you have a certain way of reading through the bible?

I've done many different types of bible studies
and I love the one where you can pick a scripture, 
write it down and tear it apart word for word.
Using the Matthew Henry Commentary is always helpful.
(Well, for me anyways...)

I love to use Our Daily Bread or 
a sweet devotional for busy moms.
But, I have to make sure it's not going off track
 and sticks with the right scriptures.
John MacArthur is another really good devotional.

Even better, just read through the bible at your own pace
and take notes, lots of notes!

Our time spent with the Lord, is priceless!



Take some time and spend it with the Lord today,
You will be forever blessed!


In His Grace,

Worn Boots...


Hello All!

Today is going to be a good day!

Old Worn Boots and all their glory.

If your boots could talk to you, what would they say?

Boots are a necessity out here on the prairie.
You wear them for of course protection for your feet, 
but you also need to wear them while hunting or playing 
in the fields for protection from snakes,
 ants and well...just about anything really!

Over the years my boys have gone from
 super teeny sizes to now really big sizes!

We try really hard to instill in our boys to 
take care of what you own.
Wear each item with joy and work hard!
No time for being lazy here...
 there is always something to do.

We get a pair of boots or shoes dirty, wet and stinky!
Yes... I do own a few more pairs of shoes than my boys
but I take really good care of them so I 
can wear them with different outfits.

You are probably thinking... 
this lady has lost it, she's writing about boots!

Go ahead, think what you will, but just know
if your shoes could talk will they say they had a good run?
Did you walk every day or did you lounge around and do nothing?
Have your shoes collected dust from not being worn?
Or have you gone through many pairs, because you out grew them?
Did you take care of what's been giving to you?

All I'm really saying is...take care of what you own.
Use and wear them until you no longer can.
Don't waste anything.
Bless someone with something you have.
Be blessed and carry on...
whether your shoes are old or new!

All in All... Life is Good and God is Greater!


Until next time...

Cooking Up Some Love...




Hello Dear Friends!

Thank you for stopping by for a quick visit.
This Summer has been flying by, hasn't it?
I can't believe tomorrow is all ready July 1st!!

Seriously?!  Summer...feel free to slow down a bit, please!

It's been so hot here, so I haven't really 
felt like cooking a lot of hot meals. 

I did manage to bake some cupcakes this morning, 
but I baked before it got hot out!

I made homemade Stromboli awhile back
 and thought I would inspire you
or well even myself  to make it (again in my case) soon.


I didn't take a before shot,
 for I tend to get in the baking mode
and don't think to grab my camera until all the mess is gone!

Any who...here's what I did:

2 batches of pizza dough made or
 you can use frozen bread dough thawed

1 jar of your favorite kind of spaghetti sauce

your choice of meat, cooked
(I used Italian sausage and ground hamburger)

2 cups cheese, shredded

any kind of sauteed veggies you like
(I used mushrooms, bell peppers, onion and garlic)


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

On a flour dusted counter, roll out your dough into a large rectangle.
Spread your sauce, meat, veggies and cheese into the edge of your dough.
Roll the dough like a jelly roll.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
If you'd like, brush some melted butter and an 
Italian herb over the top of the hot bread.

Serve with additional sauce for dipping.


I hope you all have a great week!

Oh... and have a Safe and Fun Independence Day!


Hugs,

A Few Photos For You...


Good Day to You!

I wanted to share a few random photos
 that my 9 year old son took.
He is learning how to use a camera
and I think he is doing a great job at 
focusing on each shot he's captured.

I hope you enjoy!!


He loves his chickens...
(He actually goes in and pets them)


This was before the prairie turned green...


He loves birds!


Daisy giving Joe a kiss...


Daisy and Hank playing...


Be Still...


Look! I think I can fly...


This says it all...
Thank you Jesus!



Seriously?!  More pictures...(LOL)


Hankie says "CHEESE!"


Joe and his logs... (Smiles)


Steam rising from the soil...


I have a ton more photos from him, so be expecting a few 
more throughout the course of the summer!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by...

Enjoy your day!

Skies & All The Wonder...

God's Grace Overflows

I just love sky pictures... Don't you?

It's just one amazing portrait
 God has given us each day to enjoy.

God's Grace Overflows

Some days, we get several 
portraits painted in the sky.

God's Grace Overflows

The sunsets are just glorious all on their own.

God's Grace Overflows

All the different colors God displays
 from one moment to the next is just breath taking.

Fire in the Sky...

God's Grace Overflows

Sometimes even the storm clouds are magnificent...


God's Grace Overflows

Simple BEAUTY full of power and peace...

God's Grace Overflows

God is all around us and it sure does show!



The heavens declare the Glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

Easy Pasta Salad...


Summer is here and you know what that means...
 it's extremely HOT outside!
And you need something light 
and cold to fill your tummies.

This pasta salad has been made
 more times than I can count.
This is my Auntie's specialty and the recipe
 was given to me when I got married.

I hope you all are doing well and 
are enjoying your summer.

Lots to do, place to see and fun things 
are on the agenda here!

How about you?
Do you have anything fun planned?

Pasta Salad

1 box Tri-Colored Spiral noodles, cooked
1/2 bottle Italian Dressing-more if needed
1 bag, frozen Broccoli/Cauliflower pieces,cooked and cooled
1/2 bag pepperoni
shredded cheese

Mix the cooked noodles, broccoli/cauliflower,
 pepperoni and the Italian dressing into a large bowl.
Serve with a handful of cheese on top.
(I don't mix the cheese in, for it tends to get soggy)
Store in the fridge.

ENJOY!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by....
