God is Good

All the time.  I just wanted to share.  We all know that it's that time of year when we start thinking about what we can give each other.  Well, I had two really awesome God things happen yesterday at church.  Plus lots of other awesome things, it's just that these two really jumped out at me to share with you.

1.  I really wanted to get Hannah a Christmas mug.  We normally have a hot drink on Christmas morning, like Egg Nog lattes or something equally yummy.  There were four big beautiful mugs that we bought years ago, but the paint was chipping on them and they were tossed at the end of last Christmas season.  We had two whimsical mugs that are Christmas themed.  I had been on the look out for another set.  Then I decided that I was just going to get Hannah her own Christmas mug this year and we would have three all together.  Yesterday, we went to church, someone walked in to the class I was in and asked if anyone needed ONE Christmas mug. Needless to say, Hannah loves it :)

2.  As we were sitting in Joel's office yesterday.  I decided that I would get him a new jar of candy.  He likes to keep candy in the office and his supply was pretty much done.  There was a luncheon after the service and we won one of the prizes, which was....a big container of Jelly Bellys.

I'm not sure exactly what it is that God wants me to spend my money on this season, but He has made it pretty clear that He's willing to help me out in some areas in order to insure that I will have the funds when it presents itself.  I am thankful that God provides for me in such small ways, because it always reminds me that if He's in the mundane then He is definitely in the extraordinary.

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.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

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!
