Why Am I Still Amazed?

I cannot tell you the number of times that I am amazed by God.  I should be used to it by now and just be amazed when I'm not amazed.  Cause really, that's how often I am amazed.  I think God has really outdone Himself, I turn the corner and there God goes again showing off His love.

This weekend, I had a couple of really amazing things happen.  I was planning on meeting with a couple of ladies this past Friday, and when I woke up there was a major winter advisory already posted for that evening.  Well, I thought about calling around and seeing if we all wanted to cancel.  But instead held off to see what would happen.  Turns out it was dry as a bone well into the night.  And I know because I ended up driving home around 11 that night.  We ended up talking after dinner and pretty much closing down the restaurant.  They were moping when we left and still no snow.  God is very good. 

After I got home and settled in to bed, there was a phone call.  Yes in the middle of the night.  My brother and sister in law were headed to the hospital.  Her water broke, a month before her due date.  I was able to talk to my mom when I woke up and it was clear that my nephew was joining us that day.  He ended up being born early that afternoon at the amazing weight of 6 pounds 7 ounces.  He's beautiful!  I can't wait to get my hands on him and give him tons of kisses.

On Sunday, I wanted to see a baptism that was happening during the second service, but had to keep an eye on Hannah.  I was so blessed to be able to check on the service and happen to get a bird's eye view of the entire thing.  It was beautiful and I am definitely looking forward to seeing little Lydia grow up and do mighty things for God.

God is doing many beautiful and wonderful things, all the time and everywhere.  As I read recently, the question where is God, but where is God not?  He's all around, working, loving and helping us to see His mighty hand at work.

  1. Thank you Tina for breakin it all down and bringing me back to where I should have been in the the first place and showing me again that its not about me but about God and the wonderous things that he does for us and the people he puts in our paths to show that he loves us unconditionally and that where he is there is Peace.

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

Project 52 Crossword Puzzle

Hannah and I had the car on Thursday and since it was officially my turn to plan date night, she and I hit the store.  We went to Target which has those great dollar bins right when you enter the store.  I found a cross word puzzle and some water balloons.  My thoughts were to make some chocolate bowls with the water balloons and do a crossword while we waited for them to harden.  Well, I got the idea of orange truffles while I was sitting around that afternoon and went to see if we had any of the stuff that would make it and I kind of had it.  So, I made up some truffles and then we covered them with chocolate that night and they were so tasty.  We made it through one crossword puzzle and cheated very little :-D  It was fun working on it together and some of the clues and words were a little ludicrous.  All in all not a bad date for a buck and some pantry raiding. In case you are interested in the dessert, I took the McCormick Eggnog Truffle recipe and modified it by omitting the n

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
