Day 23/30

Day Twenty three - Something you crave for a lot.


My number one thing that I crave is to lie down.  Not even to necessarily sleep but to lay down.  I love to lie down and read or lie down and watch TV or lie down and watch the world go by.  It's the thing I crave the most.  But I also worry that I'm lying down too much.  So it's a catch 22.
 
The number one food that I crave is a toss up between french fries and ice cream.  Those are the things that I get cravings for.  I'll eat just about any version of them.  I'm not picky, though I do adore Red Robin's steak fries, NUM!  And I get a hankering for Pumpkin Pie, Winter White Chocolate, and Baseball Nut from Baskin Robbins from time to time. 
 
The number one movie that I crave is You've Got Mail.  I can sit lie down and watch that movie back to back for an entire day.  I know because I did it one time when it was on one of those Turner networks that does crazy stuff like that.
 
The number one place that I crave is Edisto Beach in South Carolina.  I spent time camping there as a kid and I still crave those carefree sunburned days.
 
The number one person I crave is Joel.  I am sad to see him go and glad to hear him return each day he has to go to work.  I'm thankful that he goes to work and provides for us, but I miss him the entire time he's gone and anticipate his return.
 
The number one car that I crave is a Mini Cooper.  I want one, bad.  I want it customized, too. They have it in diesel across the border, but I'd take the gas version or any version if I could just have one!
 
The number one restaurant that I crave is Duke's BBQ in Ridgeville, SC.  All you can eat or carry out only open two days a week and food that is delicious and reminds me of home.
 
The number one craving that I have in my life is more Jesus.  I love God and it never quite feels like I have enough.  I love to read the Bible, serve Him, and pray, but every day I wake up with the craving to do it all over again and to do it better with more love this time. 
 
What do you crave?

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap.




Study Questions Week 10


When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others? When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person?When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments? God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise? Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even if you are in the midst of a s…

Thankful Thursday

Hard to believe that it's Thursday already, but it is! Wow! I'm thankful for a whole bunch of things this week, so many that if I would list them all, I'd be here for the rest of the day and into tomorrow. Heck I'd be lucky to be done by the end of the decade.

I'm thankful for my husband! He's a real trooper. Love how he not only cares for so many people through the church, but that he cares for our family. Seems like he's always got just a little bit more time to do what needs to be done, which is pretty amazing considering that he's only got the same 24 hours that I have.

I'm thankful for my little girl. I enjoyed the time away when she was at camp last week, but we've been having fun this week hanging out together. She's pretty amazing in lots of hard to explain ways, I guess she's mysterious in her lovliness. I hope that others are as impressed with it as I am.

I'm thankful for family near and far. I'm looking forward to spe…
