    The beauty of creation

    I took this picture with my cell phone. It was cloudy today, a bit. The mountains around here are beautiful, no matter if the sun is shining or not.

    Whats for Supper...

    We've just been picking at leftovers for the past couple of nights. Mom did a roast, and there was plenty of it.

    Last night we had hamburgers. Since Randy is trying to cut carbs, I used a low carb tortilla for his and made him a kind of hamburger wrap. He enjoyed it. In a little while I am heading over to Tacoma to spend the evening with a friend. We will be going to the Outback for supper. My hubs is jealous. 🤣 Although he knows I will be bringing my leftovers home to him.

    Sounds tasty! We'll be finishing up leftovers and picking for dinner tonight. I'll likely have toast again - I've been sick all day. Tomorrow morning is the men's breakfast, and it's here this month. So we've got to prepare for that.

    Absence of Doctrinal Authority

    Just an FYI, Eustace - the Church of England is Protestant and falls under the definition of sect in that it separated from the RCC way back. Independent Baptist churches are dependent upon Christ and His Word. Yes, there is the possibility of going astray - many of us on this site can point to Baptist churches that have turned from following the Bible and begun following emotions/culture. But here's the beauty of not having a denominational headquarters: independent churches don't HAVE to follow rules set by a man or a group who "leads" an entire denomination.

    Biblical Way to Get Out of Jury Duty

    I wouldn't work to get out of jury duty...but an honest answer often means expulsion in a lot of areas.

    I fixed Steakum sandwiches tonight - fried peppers and onions, mixed with the meat (Steakum is a brand of very, very thinly sliced beef). Meat mixture put into a hoagie bun that's been buttered and baked. Cheese first, then meat mixture, then more cheese. Bake again until cheese is melted and the buns are a bit crusty. Add condiment of choice - we use mayonnaise and A1. Delicious! My guys enjoyed them while watching the recording of OH State whomping Michigan. 😁

    Thanksgiving Plans?

    My niece's boyfriend opted to spend Thanksgiving with his mom because he'll be with us Christmas Eve and possibly Christmas Day. Our nephew was with us today, too. We had an enjoyable time. Dinner was delicious. We'll be having pie in a bit - pumpkin and lemon meringue. It's good to be able to enjoy family whenever we can. God has blessed us much.

    Thanksgiving Plans?

    I was just wondering what folks have planned for Thanksgiving? We will be having our family dinner, as usual. My sister has a boyfriend, so she and her youngest daughter won't be here. But my oldest niece, her boyfriend, my niece, our son, my hubs, and my mom will be here. And my oldest brother is going to try and make it. If he does, we'll be giving him his Christmas presents because he won't be here for Christmas. The night before we will be having a thanks giving service at church. The day after I'll start decorating for Christmas. 😊

    My guys had pizza tonight (thin crust for Randy so the carbs wouldn't get out of hand). I had leftovers from my lunch with our ladies today - Chinese. Orange chicken - yummy.

    Thanksgiving Plans?

    It is always the fourth Thursday of November here in America - Nov. 22 this year. Canada has theirs in October. I don't know if any other countries observe a specific day or not.

    Food storage

    We do some storage. Less than we did before we moved here, but some. I'm excited for you!

    Open/Close/Closed Communion

    My Dad was from WVA. We lived there for a few years when I was a teenager. It is beautiful! (and WVA voted in favor today of an amendment saying there is no right to abortion for any reason...!!).

    I'm sorry to hear about your dad. I had a number of health issues that hit me after my dad died, so I understand!

    Hymn of Comfort

    Our hymnbook has 5 verses in it - 1,2,5,and 6 above. But we have an additional verse: E'en down to old age, all My people shall prove My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love; And when hoary hairs shall their temples adorn, Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne.

    Suggestions and/or Ideas?

    Wow! That's a great price! I do have plans to go to the thrift stores here in town. The Goodwill has a large section, and many of those are hardback.

    Suggestions and/or Ideas?

    So we are (heh, that we would be mostly me LOL) are beginning our church library. We were given some books - many boxes, as a matter of fact. However, most of them we can't use because they aren't appropriate for a church library. We are very limited with our finances, so will be very slowly adding. But I'm excited that we are able to begin this. So suggestions and ideas would be greatly welcome. Do you have a library at your church? If so, do you use a computer or is everything done on paper? If on computer, what system do you use? We will be focusing on adult books for now, since we don't have children attending. Suggestions and ideas of books to purchase would be appreciated. I know several sites, and have plans to eventually purchase from them. But, as I said before, we are limited in finances, so I would like to begin with lower-priced items.
