Daily Devotional

I saw this on Facebook and thought it was really good. It is always good to start out your day with a daily devotional.  We do not spend enough time reading the Bible.  There is so much in it for us to learn.  And it is alive.  Everytime you read it, you see something you missed.  Perhaps you daydreamed for a second and read a verse and didn't comprehend what it meant.  However, the next time you read it, it really speaks to you.

I think it is time they retired that groundhog.  Here it is the first day of Spring and everything is covered with snow.  Not only that but the wind is blowing and the wind chill is below zero.  It is only 18 degrees outside.  The only good thing about it is that the sun is out most of the time.  Also, the furnace works good and the house is warm.  They are even talking more snow this Sunday.  If it snows again Saturday night late into Sunday, it will be the 5th week in a row.  I know most of the time it snows in March during the boys and girls basketball tournaments in our State, but this is ridiculous.

It is a beautiful sunny day.  We have had so many cloudy days this month.  Along with that we have had a couple real snowstorms.  It seems like there have been snow showers inbetween too.  Freezing rain and sleet are no fun at all.  Keeps me home in the house where I know I won't slip and fall.  The ER's are full of people who fell on the ice or were in car accidents.  Spring is just around the corner and we can hardly wait.

It is time for lunch and then time for a nap.  Their Mom always gives them very healthy food.  You can see by the picture that they are the picture of health.  They have good appetites.  My children were often kind of picky about what they wanted to eat.  But it seems mothers are able to get their little ones to eat more of a variety of foods that are good for them.  Fruits and veggies are always good for them.

Town Restaurants

Our little town is finally getting quite a few places to eat.  It is so nice to have a choice instead of just one little restaurant.  We now have a Mexican  place that is doing a very good business.  It took awhile to take off but now they have added an addition to another small town just north of us and doing well there too.  We have a Hardees which always has a big selection of burgers, etc. and of course, there is Subway.  Along with those there is a new Chinese place the last couple of years and it is finally picking up and we were there yesterday and they did a good business.  Next to it is an American Expresso Cafe, where you can get any kind of coffee, latte, cappicino and sandwiches of all kinds and salad..  The bar across the street has great hamburgers among other specials and Friday night fish.  The Pizza Ranch is a favorite of everyone too as they have a huge salad bar, pizza, cheese sticks, broasted potatoes and chicken, BBQ chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, vegetables and all winter, hot soups of all kinds.  If you can't find something you like, you better cook at home.

My daughter makes the best enchiladas.  I made them the whole time they were growing up.  I am glad to see others taking over in the family.  There is just nothing like homemade.  You can put all the meat/bean mixture in them and then add shredded cheese.  I love lots of chopped onions and taco sauce inside mine.  Then good enchilada sauce poured over the top of them and you have a delicious meal.  Makes me hungry just thinking about it.
