Glad we made it to another year. Crazy to think it is now 2010. Wow. 2010. Wow! We remember the 80's like they were yesterday and that was 30 years ago. We think we might be getting old.
The following excerpt from "Streams in the Desert", is our inspiration for the year:
"We would be better Christians if we spent more time alone, and we would actually accomplish more if we attempted less and spent more time in isolation and quiet waiting upon God. "
We have decided to focus on living more intentional instead of always bouncing down every rabbit hole that comes along. Sometimes this might even mean saying the 2 letter word. You know, no. We have such a hard time saying no and often find ourselves doing lots of wonderful things that we really had no intention of doing. And doing all these things takes the place often of other pursuits that we feel lead to do.
As for this blog... we plan on continuing; more photos, more little snippets on the restorative powers of God's little piece of creation we are so blessed to live on. We will post as often as possible and as little as needed. We hope you can drop by here from time to time and we always love to hear your comments.
Just for fun:
Black Eyed Peas to bring you luck in 2010:
1 lb dry black eyed peas (don't use precooked, the luck is already swelled out of them!)
2 cups cooked ham (don't use chicken because they eat backwards and don't use beef because they eat backwards, forwards and sideways, EAT pig because they always push forward !)
pinch of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 onions diced
1- 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes
Soak beans overnight or cover with water in pan and bring to a boil. When boiling turn off, keep covered for 1 hour for a quick soak.
Drain beans, place in pot with all other incredients, cover with water and cook until tender making sure to keep enough liquid in pot. Enjoy over cornbread.
