Today's Proverb

 What the Lord says about me and what I often say or think about me sure can be different.  More than anything I need to hear and put to heart what the Lord says about me.

*To hear the video go to the bottom of this blog and stop the music.

1 My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; 2 For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. 3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, 4 And so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man. Proverb 3

Home Sweet Home

These pictures are of a little box that belonged to my father's mother.  The box is probably 50 or 60 years old and very tattered and worn.  The lid deteriated on the hinged side so now it only sits on top but somehow I think it is such a sweet feminine little box I can't part with it.  On the top it has Memories written across the bottom.

When you look inside on the bottom of the lid I can see where my Grandmother wrote, "Fort Lauderdale, the most beautiful place in the world."  This is a woman that had traveled around the world.  I often wonder what made Fort Lauderdale so beautiful to her. 

I have never been outside of the United States and up until our daughter moved with her husband and family to Kentucky I had hardly seen any of the US.  I was raised in California and have lived all my adult life in Arizona.

The most beautiful place in the world to me has to be the house on Kristal Lane that I call home.  There is just something special about going somewhere on vacation or away for a family emergency and then returning "home".  Home sweet home - no other place I really want to be.

On a spiritual note when I think about how much I love my home then I am quickly reminded that my Heavenly Father is building a mansion custom made for me and  I am just awe struck at what that must be.  Thank you Lord that You know me and You love me so very much.

This is my go to recipe for quick, easy and wonderful. Such a nice recipe because everything is usually stocked in the pantry for a quick dessert.

Fruit Cobbler

1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk

Melt butter in 8x8 glass pan. Mix sugar, flour, salt, baking powder and milk together and pour over melted butter. Don't mix. Top with fruit and again don't mix. Bake at 375* for 30 minutes or till golden brown.

As usual I am linking to Lisa at to join the other fun ladies with fantastic recipes.

Labor Day Cookout

Remember how I have shared I only make my delicious coleslaw when we have company cause Precious Husband doesn't care for coleslaw?  Well, whoppee I am fixing coleslaw next Monday.  Yes, I know, it doesn't take much to make this mémère happy.

We are having the pastor and his family along with the young men living in our Pampa house all down for a big cookout.  Emmit, one of our young men prides himself on his BBQ and his secret sauce so he is in charge of cooking the meat.  I will be making lots of salads, baked beans and of course the heart attack special cheese bread that everyone loves.  Jason, our son who also lives in the Pampa house will make his signature hot sausage and cheese dip.  Anthony will be here too and he does love his mother's coleslaw : )  So all in all it should be a very great cookout.  Plan to challenge Pastor Eddie to a game of Wii bowling to make the evening complete.
