Miscelleneous Monday

The first Monday in August..........really??? I won't even say how that just cannot be possible.  But, guess it is and hey, I've even begun my Christmas shopping.  I've always got my "eyes peeled" for deals for Christmas and already have some in my "stash."  For now, let's get random with Carissa...........
lowercase letters

A breath of fresh air.........
I was privileged this past Friday to have lunch with these fine young ladies.  They renewed my confidence in today's young folks for sure!  These gals are committed to Christ, not ashamed of it, living lives pleasing to Him, and inspire me!  I told them that they are now my "adopted" Granddaughters and what a joy it has been to know most of them pretty much all of their lives. I can't wait to see where the Lord leads each of them. I plan to have another lunch date with them sooner than later for sure! Yep! they are, as we say here in the South, "the cream of the crop!"

It's vanilla and homemade........
If you are a regular reader of my blog then you remember this past week I stated in a post that I could not remember the last time I had had homemade ice cream and that I ONLY like vanilla.  Well, this sweetheart in the above picture with me, took care of that matter.  I have known Nicole her entire life, taught her in Sunday School and have watched her grow into such a fine young woman with a wonderful husband and two children.  She is a regular reader of my blog and when she read that she decided to share some of their weekly homemade vanilla ice cream with me.  They make it every weekend and eat on it the coming week.  So, yesterday they pulled into our driveway with this little tub just for me!  Now, is that sweet or what??? And, might I add, it was too perfection, smooth, creamy and "just right!"

Feed them and they will come...........
I've always heard that the Baptist are the "eatinest" group of folks this side of heaven.  And, it's pretty much true.  We're always looking for an opportunity to get together and eat and will make every meeting an eating affair if we possibly can.  One such time was this past Saturday evening.  We had our annual choir dinner and about 50+ folks were there and enjoyed the most delicious steak dinner with all the trimmings.  One of the choir members hosted us in their lovely, roomy home and we enjoyed a time of eating, fellowship and  laughing.  It doesn't get much better......good food and Christian fellowship!

 And, a Happy Birthday to none other than.....

Yep, our sweet Carissa will celebrate another year this Friday, August 9th!  I'm so honored to have meet this gal "in the flesh" and her sweet family.  If you have never been by Carissa's blog then you need to drop by. Carissa, may you feel very celebrated on Friday!

Have a wonderful week!

  3. You are such a delight; no wonder you have so many friends of all ages. Yes, Baptists love to eat. All those potlucks that unfortunately create those extra pounds. At my age, it's harder to get rid of them.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

  5. That was so sweet of you to treat those beautiful girls to lunch. And yes, they do seem to be the "cream of the crop!" And so sweet of Nicole to do that for you. My goodness, she looks so much like her mother. I tried to decipher faces at the choir gathering, but only recognized a few. And yes again, that bunch knows how to fellowship! Have a great week.

  8. I have some Christmas gifts bought too! That is nice to hear about those girls. I wish I knew God when I was their age. That was really very sweet of Nichole. Where is mine? That choir dinner looks like a winner and very delicious. Happy Birthday to Carissa!
