Wordless Wednesday...

Box Fun!!!

In His Word Wednesday

Fruits of the Spirit...

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

My footnotes say..
Christian character is produced by the Holy Spirit, not by the mere discipline of trying to live by law. The indwelling Holy Spirit produces Christian virtues in the believer's life.

In the coming weeks I think I'll take these "fruits of the spirit" one by one and look up verses on each one.
I think as humans it's impossible to have these "fruits" all the time , but we should strive and improve ourselves toward that goal with the Holy Spirit's help!!
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request?
Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
You can just leave your link, words, or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!

Prayer Request --
My mom made it to the Dominican.
Pray for continued safety and that God's will be done.
~Thank-you for your prayers~

Proverbs Chapter 6

Verses 16-19

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.

Breakfast Burritos

Here's a recipe that isn't a bread recipe!!

I'm always looking for ways to make a good
breakfast for hubby that doesn't involve a lot of
work in the early morning. I was excited to find this idea
over at Amy's Finer things

Breakfast Burritos!!

Easy to do and very versatile. I did a much simpler
version of what Amy did. (see her recipe here)

Here's what I did...
1. I simply made scrambled eggs with sausage and cheese.

2. Put a large scoop on a tortilla.

3. Rolled them up.

4. Wrapped them in a paper towel and then
in a piece of foil. I then put them in a ziploc bag
and stuck them in the freezer.

In the morning, I pulled 1 out. Took off the foil and
defrosted/cooked it in the microwave.
For the whole batch
(it made 8 burritos, with a few eggs left over)

I used 13 eggs
1 cup cheese
1/2 lb sausage
and 1 package tortilla shells

Not only did hubby like them but
several of the kids did too!

Rubbermaid 6 Pc. Drawer Organizer Review and Giveaway

I was so excited when Rubbermaid offered
to send me their brand new
6 pc. interlocking drawer organizer.
Of course I jumped at the chance.

My junk drawer was a little out of control...

((See I told you!!!))

This 6 pc. organizer kit has just been released and let
me tell you, I Love it! When it came, I took about 20 minutes
and turned my junk drawer into this...

What a difference it makes to open it and be able
to immediately find anything I need.
It just makes me feel better to be organized!

I also love that each piece can be hooked together
and it has no slip feet so everything stays in place when
I open and shut the drawer.

I highly recommend their interlocking drawer organizer
to ANYONE who has an out of control drawer.

I've discovered that I could use about 6 more sets...
But that's a problem for another day, so for now
I'll just stare at my nicely organized junk drawer!
Rubbermaid has also generously
offered to give one of these sets away to
one of my awesome readers!

Proverbs Chapter 4

Verses 20-27

My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Put away perversity from yout mouth; keep corrupt talk fora from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm. Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.
