Good morning Y'all! I have learned that where ever I am, and what ever the situation is on the outside, if I wake up and get out of bed when morning comes, "IT IS A GOOD MORNING"! With that said, it is an awful dreary, wet and cold morning in my neck of the woods today, with more of the same to be expected. Yuk!!! On the up side though, it is cozy, warm and dry inside!!!! How blessed am I to be able to say that? Thank you Lord!!!!
I got an e-mail yesterday form a friend that is one of our county extension agents and she said that yesterday was "eat-in" day. Encouraging us to fix a healthy meal for our families and eat together and enjoy it. Then to post about it on face book or any of the other social media sites. Since I do not do face book, I decided I would share it here, on my blog. Well, even before I got that message from her, I was already making some homemade vegetable beef stew and cornbread sticks. I thawed a couple of thin small rib eye steaks that I had gotten at the Dollar Tree, yes, you read right, the Dollar tree. I cut those into bite sized pieces and browned the meat in my electric pressure cooker. The I started adding all the veggies that we love. I don't know about you, but I am so thankful that we have access to wonderful frozen veggies year around in the frozen foods aisles at the grocery stores. I love to keep bags of the mixed veggies on hand for just such quick ideas and all the healthy goodness that comes with the veggies. A lot of the processed, canned foods, as good as they are, they have tons of sodium and other stuff that we just don't need. So, with the pressure cooker and frozen veggies, it doesn't take long to whip up a great stew! We really enjoyed it and will have it for lunch again today. So, that was our healthy "eat in" meal.
The other day when I made my last post to my blog, after I had written the title of that days posting, I changed my mind about the project that I was sharing. Then when I posted it to the Google+ groups, it had the wrong title. I'm telling y'all, some day's I'm just to be pitied. hahahaha Oh well, what's a girl to do? I believe in keeping everyone on their toes. So, it was actually "planned". Yeah, right!
Anyway, today I wanted to share a card with y'all that I made. It is a "quilled" card. I just love quilling and I finally got to get the "cherished" quilling comb that I had been wanting for so long. I just broke down and got it. It is so fun! I had always wanted to make a quilled cross with it and I did. Yay!! Keep in mind, this card is nothing fancy at all. It is actually the first one I made. But, it won't be my last.
Do you ever sit down to read the Bible and wish you knew exactly who Jesus is in the particular book of the Bible that you are reading? Well, I used too also. A friend of mine sends me a morning devotional every morning. She has a list of several people that she sends to. The devotionals are always so spot on with what I need and always about how God is working in my own life at the time. I was thinking one day that it would be so nice to know up front just how Jesus was represented in each particular book of the Bible. No sooner than I had that thought, I checked my email and good golly miss molly, guess what was there? Go ahead, guess. Yup, you guessed it, Jesus Through The Bible! I have enjoyed having it and wanted to share it with y'all. I do NOT know who put this together, so, that is why I put the word "copied" at the end of it. It is not my writing and I don't want to claim it. But, I do hope that you enjoy it as much as I have.

I don't know about y'all, but I love each and ever description of who Jesus is in every one of them. I claim Him "AS" each and every one of these over my own life. I pray that you will too!
May you allow God to bless you today in the way that He wants to. Lets take the challenge of keeping God out of the "box" and letting Him be as big as He wants to be in our lives. My dreams for myself are too small, so I try to let God dream for me. He dreams big! Nothing is impossible with God!
Have a wonderful day Ladybug! Sweetpea loves you!
Be blessed today y'all, in all that you do! Just know that God loves y'all and so do I. hugs, Patty
