Lest we Forget

28 May

I am so grateful for the brave men and women who headed the call and left what was familiar and comfortable for a life of upheaval and uncertainty. Today I pause with reflective prayer to honor those who gave their all…the fallen brave who courageously breathed their last breath defending the country and the people they so loved.

To the families who gather around a grave rather than a grill-my prayer is that our Heavenly Father will fill them with grace, peace, and healing. That they would find comfort in each other and that the sweet memories of their loved ones will sustain them until they are reunited in Heaven. Thank you, for your great sacrifice also!

 

As you enjoy your 3 day weekend please remember and pray for all the brave men and women in our military. Pray for the mothers and fathers who will never hold their precious boys and girls in their arms again, for the wives and husbands who will never get to live out the hopes and dreams they planned together, and for the precious children who will never feel the tickle of daddy’s whiskers on their cheek or the soft embrace of their mother’s arms again. The burden is too great to let this weekend go by without a heartfelt sense of gratitude for the meaning behind our three day weekend.

A New Year Prayer

31 Dec

I hope you are all having a wonderful celebration with those you love! My prayer for you is that in this new year you will grow deeper in your faith, that your marriages will be stronger and more passionate, that you will find great purpose in being a great parent, to be more intentional with your friendships, and mostly, to find ways to be a blessing to others. May God guide your paths, comfort you, and give you peace as you embark on a shiny New Year

The Twilight of Childhood

4 Jun Twilight of Childhood

She wakes with an infectious smile that seems to chase away any lingering gloominess from my soul.  She rests her head with ease  in that little crook of my shoulder that always seems to fit no matter how she grows.  She reminds me what goodness, and loveliness, and kindness feels like and she freely shares it with anyone fortunate enough to cross her path.  She dreams of filling shelves at the book store with her writings and filling the stage with songs about her greatest love….Jesus.

Even though the twilight of her childhood is setting in she still clings to girlhood fiercely. She isn’t quite ready to let it go and I’m not quite ready to let her go. So for a moment I will relish in my little girl and all her little girl ways and I will keep loving her well. For these last few moments, I will be near, holding her hand as she dips her toes into adolescence, so when the sun sets for the last time on her childhood she will be ready to let go of me and pursue her own life with confidence. grace, tenderness, and passion. I pray that these gifts will be accepted well and would bring healing to a wounded world and hope to wounded souls.

But for now, I will enjoy her sleepy head on my shoulder with messy curls tickling my cheek. In a moment it will be over. Tonight she will say goodbye to ten and welcome eleven with great expectation…..just as she should.

Bring Back That Summer Feeling ~BBQ pulled chicken~

24 Sep

Now that Fall is in full swing here in the North I am already missing the lazy days of summer and the wonderful tastes that go with it. This is one of our favorite summer recipes adapted to cook in your crock pot. Enjoy a little taste of summer year round with this easy and flavorful recipe!

In a large slowcooker add 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts. Add 1 1/2
green bell peppers on top of chicken.
Add one large sliced onion.  Cover with lid and cook on low about 7-8 hours.
Remove lid and drain any excess liquid on the bottom of the slow cooker. With
2 forks shred chicken (chicken should be tender enough to do this right inside the
slow cooker).
Add 1 1/2- 2 Cups of your favorite BBQ sauce and stir to mix.
Cover and cook an additional 30 minutes to an hour.
Serve with your favorite sides.
Ingredients
4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 green bell peppers
1 large onion
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

*serves my family of 5 for 2 meals*

Add your chicken breasts to your slow cooker and top with sliced bell pepper and onion.  Cook on low 7-8 hours and drain excess liquid.  With 2 forks shred chicken and add 1 1/2-2 Cups of your favorite BBQ sauce.  Cover and cook an additional 30 minutes to an hour.  Serve with your favorite sides.
*As a variation I also serve these on hamburger buns. To make it even more delicious add a slice of provolone cheese to the chicken and melt
 under your broiler until melted goodness is acheived.*

As always, thanks for stopping by!
