Josh and I rented a car for a weekend, and decided to go look at antique shops. We really didn't have anything in mind when we went, but Josh really enjoys going to look. Antiques are something he learned to love from his Meme who really enjoyed antiques along with the sport of finding them. Me on the other hand, I am not an "antiquer." I did enjoy this day though.
This thought is totally a thought for me, but I felt like I would share. I have grown up hearing this parable over and over, but the other day, I had a light bulb. It is amazing how one story in the Bible and have so many meanings.
Now, if you really know me you know this blog title is quite funny. I can't cook! I took two hours and tried to make Josh an apple pie the other day, just to throw it away. It was horrible. Don't worry though, I had an award winner pass on her tips. Recently Brisbane had the Ekka. It is kind of the American version of The State Fair. There is a lot of competitions where people come from all over the state to show their prize goodies, animals, or strength. A lady from my school, Dee entered her biscuits (cookies) and won. She has gotten the opportunity to share her tips all over Brisbane. Since my blog is actually called EAT, and my friend Erica keeps asking for food on my blog, I thought I would share Dee's tips also. I even got to taste the award winners, and she was kind enough to share one of her recipes.
Lately I have been reminded a lot about God's promises. There have been some beautiful rainbows from my porch. His promises have so much more meaning that just rainbows though. I have been reading some about His promises. I thought I should share.
From time to time we all sit down to review our bucket list and wonder when and where we will get the chance to tick one if not two of the boxes.
Early one Saturday morning we woke up at 3 a.m. to tick a box off that ever growing list as we travel around the world. I really think the more we see, the more our list grows. Shouldn't it be the other way around? Anyway, heavy eyed and no caffeine, Josh woke up and drove us to the pickup spot, where we loaded the bus toward our early morning adventure. Heads were nodding back and forth as we turned each corner as folks nodded off on our way to the launch site, but all eyes opened wide as we approached the fire breathing torches that lit two of the three balloons that were ready for take off.
