We made a meatloaf the other day, and made it different than what I have ever made. It was SOOO good!!!
I used the lower fat ground beef (2 1/2 pounds - Rick is to eat a LOT of protein now) ... 4 eggs ... added 16 oz of mild picante sauce ... a can of whole kernel corn ... 4 oz shredded cheese ... and crushed up croutons ... mixed it all together. Put into a pan. Used about 1/2 cup more picante sauce on top. Baked it @ 300* until all the pink in the meat was gone. OMW!!! I do believe it was the BEST meatloaf I have ever tasted! Just a delicious combination of flavors and textures.
Thank you Lord for the creativity to try this!!! And for a willing husband to eat the "creations" - LOL.
We are looking forward to our trip next week. Leaving SS on the 8th - and going out to the Graham area. Spending 5 days with our son and his family =)!!! Then, we are leaving out there on the 13th, driving to Houston. We will spend that night with Rick's cousin - Al & Christine. Appointment at MD Anderson on the 14th. With friends, Mike & Nina, that evening and night. Nina said that Mike will be grilling steaks for our supper =) ... Rick's mouth is already drooling!!!!! ROFL
Excited about spending time with family and friends ... and getting out of the house ... away from here longer than a doctor's appointment or hospital stay!
We don't always (rarely) understand all that God either allows or does in our lives. But then, we are told to "not lean on our own understanding" (Proverbs 3) anyway!
I know that God is good all the time ... and all the time, God is good. Trusting Him is easy - yet oh so very hard.
I have said many times that this life of faith would be so much easier if the money was in the bank!!! But then, Rick keeps saying, "Honey, that wouldn't be a life of FAITH." Well, maybe not - but it certainly would be easier!!!
I am thankful that God understands ME!!! And thankful that He doesn't require perfection from us - just persistence.
Persistence is something I can do! LOL
Spending today and tomorrow trying to get caught up on the computer and on some "projects"... hopefully & prayerfully will have a weekend of creativity and accomplishment - while having a weekend of joy and laughter with my hubby =) ...
We spend a massive amount of time together right now. A fair estimate would be that 95% of our time, 24 hours a day, are spent together, alone. Guess it is a good thing that we actually LIKE each other!!! LOL
Trusting in the Lord ... Calling on Jesus ... and depending on the truth of His promises ---
Jeremiah 1:19 ... "They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you", declares the Lord.
Thank you God for loving us this much!!!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
