The Last Supper (of 2012)

Well, this is it friends! The end of 2012 is almost here and the Lord has given me one more hard lesson. It was very unexpected too.

So there I was in the kitchen making a great mexican dinner for our last meal of the day, month and year. I was really excited about doing it because my whole family loves tacos! Now, let me set the scene for you - I'm cooking, the hubby is literally over my shoulder in anticipation and the boys were playing upstairs. Before I can even prepare everything, everyone starts rushing me to finish, asking for certain things in particular and asking what dessert will be. After I'm done my guys pounce on everything like they have never eaten before in their lives. I always make sure my husband gets his plate first, and as you have probably guessed...I'm last at the table even though by this time, I'm awfully hungry as well.
Then the strangest thing happened. My Chay says "Yuck! I don't want this stuff. It looks nasty. Give me something e…

Christmas 2012

My Christmas meditation:
This Christmas season I find myself in the book of Isaiah recalling all that the prophet foretold of Jesus Christ. I noticed that he is King of kings and Lord of lords, The Mighty God and the one who's Kingdom has no end. The thing that strikes me the most this year is that the government would be upon His shoulders. I asked the Lord what that meant. The Holy Spirit tells me that He is the upholder of every ruler (ie, kingdom) of the world. He bears the weight of all leadership. Government is His burden to bear, not ours. I am a voter but I am not highly involved in politics for a reason. I am an Independent and rightfully so. My Lord and ruler is not of this world. I am merely an ambassador of the Kingdom of God here and am Holy Royalty at home. The other kingdoms, rulers, leaders and kings of this world are under His government. I thought that was a great encouragement considering the current state of affairs of this world. I simply cannot spend my time…

Home remedy

This will probably only be exciting to other women who do dishes perpetually (as I do)! I ran out of dishwasher soap and I was not trying to go to the store to get some (or wash them by hand - are you kidding me?!) So, my darling husband came up with the idea of finding a home remedy online. He would say that cuz he's a very techy guy. Anywho, I found one and it worked! So of course, I'm sharing it with you. Here is the recipe:1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
A dime-sized amount of dish soapThat's it! Simple, cheap and effective. God is good!

Sister Party

My sisters and I have a tradition. We often get together and spend quality time doing things that we like. We truly are best friends. As our "end of the year get together", we decided to do a nail party. We had a blast for a blessed four hours. Pizza, wings, lattes and lots of music and heartfelt laughter. Hopefully we were not getting high on the acetone. Talk about a girls night out! Me - least likely to do something crazy with my polish! Lisa - The most likely to have a plethera of nailcare essentials. Rose - The author and the hostess for our sister events.

Pinky Promise

I am intrigued by a new website I found the other day. It is the pinky promise movement. It was started by a woman of God with a ministry of reconciliation and encouragement to single and married women to be faithful to God and with their bodies. You should check it out When you join, and I'm sure you will be sure to add me as a friend!
And yes, I did make the promise....but I did that many moons ago. Have a great weekend!

Candycane Tea

Orange ginger mint is an after meal round herbal tea from The Republic of Tea. Its very strong for an herbal tea. I added sugar and steeped it for about 1 minute. The ginger is most apparent. I love mint so I added a candycane and it was perfect after lunch today!
