  1. Absolutely! heart - I totally agree. Sadly, though, we don't have enough folks to have someone else in there with me on Sundays.
  2. Well, we've got our winter now. It snowed a bit last night - woke up to about 3 inches or so. At noon it began snowing again, and, while it's tapered off, it hasn't let up. According to the weather app, it is supposed to snow til 5 am. A bit of rain is supposedly mixed in with the snow right now. While I don't love snow, I don't hate it, either...although after Randy's slip and fall just over a year ago, I get kind of panicky thinking about him being out in this. He made it to work with no problems today, but called off for tomorrow. Our van is in the shop, so he's been using my mom's lit
  3. Looks like fun! Happy anniversary!
  4. And yet, and yet... NN did warn him by this statement: "From what little I've read, John Ogwyn is the person behind the course. Since he is affiliated with the "Living Church of God", I can't recommend his teachings." Oh, no, he didn't mention Armstrong. But in all actuality, it doesn't seem to have mattered. Totoo thanked him and has apparently steered clear of it. Sometimes going into lengthy detail isn't necessary. Sometimes less said is better. Discretion is, after all, the better part of valor.
  5. Yes, "Call to Glory" is good - we personally know several of the pastors who contribute. Our church purchases copies for our members. It's been neat to have someone reference what they read that morning and be able to discuss it. It's not necessarily a couples' devotional, but it might be a good one to start with. It also has a through-the-Bible reading plan.
  6. In our Sunday School, we are going on in to the life of Christ. Since this is the girls' first experience with church, I want them to learn as much as possible about Christ. Today we looked at the calling of the disciples. I talked to the girls about inviting friends...so we may start to grow! =D My hubs preached on giving ourselves to the Lord, from Romans 12:1,2. Our attendance was a bit lower, but praise the Lord of those who came out! Rebecca, I cannot wait to be able to teach the girls about Moses. I had thought about going in to that after Christmas, but after praying and talk
  7. Yes, I know mustard is yellow in color. But we differentiate in our house (and many recipes do, as well), by referring to regular mustard as yellow. Because then there is the spicy brown, which, while yellowish, is closer to brown. Then there is deli mustard, which is even more brown. All in our refrigerator, so all get a different name, yellow being my favorite, deli my mom's, and spicy brown my hubs'. I've never tried korma, but the lady whose Big Mac salad recipe we used has a recipe for it I may try. We don't eat Indian foods, so it will be a different thing for us.
  8. I don't know why anyone would accuse you of compromise! This is a very real issue. We face it somewhat ourselves, although we do use our pianist (she is in her 80s and has requested that we begin praying for another piano player...there are many evenings she is not able to be here). Our son is the song leader, and he also is not fond of the high notes (it seems like most of the songs we sing get pretty high!). I am a natural alto, but due to the lack of many to carry a tune, I have to sing the melody...and the songs get high for me, too! LOL I'm thinking we need to specify with our pra
  9. I made Big Mac salad this afternoon. It's a good salad for someone who is watching their carbs. While we have not gone full blown back onto the low carb eating yet (tomorrow...), this was a good lunch. Both my husband and son liked it, as did I. My mom doesn't care for yellow mustard, which is in the sauce recipe. We will be having it again, and probably often (I will probably omit the mustard in my mom's sauce, or replace it with spicy brown). https://twosleevers.com/big-mac-salad/
  10. We had beef stew last night, and probably leftovers of that tonight (Randy got pork vegetable soup and a ham sandwich in his dinner bucket for tonight - he works til 9:45 on Fridays).

  12. Randy's been off his eating program for the holidays. He is slowly getting back on. He's off sweets this week, and next week we'll go full tilt into no grains. So tonight I made meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and broccoli.
  13. Hubs preached on being a living sacrifice yesterday. I taught the kids about Jesus' baptism and temptation. One of the girls took it on herself to speak up and tell God that she accepted Jesus. When I questioned her, she didn't know why yet. So I told her we would discuss it more as time goes on. Neither of the two girls has any previous church experience, so they don't understand sin and salvation yet. But I think the older one is coming close! So that was exciting. The first Sunday of the month we have lunch followed by an afternoon service (with no evening service). Then we head over
  14. Hope everyone had a wonderful couple of days. God is good.
  15. Yay! So glad to hear that you've found your ministry - and I'm sure the folks at the church are happy as well. What a blessing to hear about God moving.
  16. Dave Olson writes good stuff. Check out help4uminstries.com. Jim Berg's Changed Into His Image us really good - not a typical devotional, but there is a workbook.
  17. We had a good day on Sunday. Not a lot of people, but good services.
  18. I fixed Randy salad and hamburgers. The bread I make him is broken down into a roll recipe, which I was able to cut in half again (the bread only lasts 3 days, so I don't want to make too many rolls at once). I used two large jar rings to bake the rolls in. They don't get real thick, but they rise enough to make smaller burgers. He's very happy to have an actual burger again. Basically the only carbs he had were in the veggies in the salad. So, not too much when you factor in the fiber. Salad dressing was an issue at first. I bought a couple of bottles of paleo dressing (so, no su
  19. I'm sure cassava flour would be enough, although there is no coconut flavor in the dredge. The coconut flour does smell a bit coconutty, but it doesn't taste. The recipe I started with uses more cassava anyway. I like coconut, but definitely would not like it with my fish, nor would Randy. This dredge actually is for chicken, but really does work great for fish. Nice thing about it is you can add any spices you might particularly like. For the chicken, I usually add paprika to the dredge.
  20. Fixing pan-fried cod tonight. I'll dredge it in egg, coconut and cassava flours. It fries up to be crispy and is tasty and flaky. Also veggies. The paleo bread Randy eats is in the oven baking. I think dinner will warm him up tonight - it's raining and cool out right now.
  21. (she goes off pouting, whiningly saying) "I wanna win..."
  22. Yes, there are many times things are added to the store-bought frozen veggies. I don't like them, myself, other than broccoli. This cauliflower supposedly doesn't have any additives. I had gotten some cauliflower "tots" for Randy to eat like tater tots, but found that there is sugar in them. So he isn't supposed to eat them, which is sad because he really liked them. I do give him a few once in a while, though, so they don't go to waste. But once the bag is gone, that's it. I saw a recipe that shows how to make your own tots from several different veggies...I just don't know if the amount of w
  23. It actually wasn't. Just put the veggies in the pan, place the fish on it, sprinkle on the coconut aminos and let the over do the work. Frozen riced cauliflower, heated in the microwave and mixed in with the veggies once cooked. It was less work than frying it. =D Tonight we had chicken and veggies.
  24. It's been a month, so I win. May I have my prize?
