In the Kitchen Potpourri

split loyalties

I’ve been a die-hard KitchenAid (mixer) aficionado. It’s wonderful to use, wonderful to look at and a wonderful time-saver for me. I’ve used my KitchenAid almost daily and sometimes several times a day for 18 years. It’s perfect and has never given me trouble. I do have to replace...

To walk with and watch the LORD

What a defining day this has been.  And with an opening line like that, one might assume I’ve come to some great revelation or conclusion about a matter, or that some marvelous epiphany has occurred in my walk.  No, and yes… no, nothing huge has been happening, no great...

Coincidences

I have to laugh at the number of Coincidences that have been happening lately.  By coincidences, I mean, when vertical meets the horizontal –or when the LORD meets us where we’re at.  These sorts of things are like punctuation marks to me.  Kind of an exclamation point to a...

Bling

It seems to me that studying the Word needs to be like enjoying a 5 course dinner. By this, I mean, that the time we spend in the Word generally tends to be more like a “fast food” drive through. We tend to skim instead of study and grab...

Take no Thought

Just as God is, and is in, the big picture, the devil is meddling in the minute details.  God’s working all things together for our good and the devil’s working everything to confusion.  It’s not so much that the enemy wants us to totally yield to him, it’s that...

Sooner than later

I so appreciate our friend’s approach with us regarding nutrition and healthful foods. She’s patiently helping us (well, me–really) see some areas I need to alter regarding the foods we eat (and don’t eat) and how to make some adjustments. I like this manner of addressing food issues bcz...

Can’t you just learn to control yourself?

I think I must have reverse anorexia. By this, I mean, I think when I look in the mirror I see less than what I see. I also seem less than what I am. And, by this, I mean: when I walk by a space, or see the size...

sweetest secrets

I’m discovering more and more that it’s best to not tell everyone everything you know ~wink~ and, for that matter, it’s best to just quietly go about your days not making too many waves (but then, that’s a blog entry for another day). A few days a week Kathryn...

Truth is…

The adage, truth is stranger than fiction, sure rings clear when considering some news stories.  I often think nothing could top what’s already been done or said by Cindy Sheehan and then I correct my words and say, I shall never cease to be amazed at what she says...

about that food processor

Wellp, it’s been a great day.  We had the loveliest drive to Canada.  Yes… it’s a drive –but always worth it.  The autumn leaves were spectacular (probably not as they would be in the New England states, but incredibly beautiful nonetheless).  With each turn of the road, it was...
