Really, that's all we did this weekend.....EAT....first we had the birthday party for Uncle Hugh, then Russell cooked out that night so we had steaks, squash casserol and asparagus, bread and MORE birthday cake. Today after church, we all met at Po Folks and ate more. I should have just applied it straight to my hips, it would have been faster! Well, there's always be good Monday, the day all dieters start fresh!
Our Pastor is preaching on Lazarus and he brought out a really good point today that I know I've never thought about.....when Jesus went with Mary and Martha to the tomb, the people that were with them followed along. Jesus had the people roll away the stone....He then called Lazrus out of the tomb......He then had the people there take off the strips of linen coverings. Get it? Jesus had people do what people CAN do, then He did what only He can do, then he had them do what they could do again! There are things only Jesus can do.....give life for example. But there are things we not only can do, but that He tells us to do. This week I want to strive to do what He wants me to do in the situations I find myself.
These two, our son and daughter in law were here for the weekend and Tommy killed a deer! He was so happy.....now for those non-hunters, they actually eat the meat and I say they because I do not! It is really lean meat, hasn't been fed a diet that includes hormones and antibiotics, so it is probably better for you, but I just can't look at the dead deer, take pictures of the proud deer slayer and then eat the little guy. But the rest of the family does. They left for home today and got there safely and in time to watch the Super Bowl...
Now no one would ever really call me a football fan, but I watched bits and pieces of it with my husband. I really did enjoy the half time show. It was a group that all ages enjoy and there were no costume problems so it was thoroughly enjoyable. I even recognized some of their songs. As I've said before, I'm not so musical. Also since I'm neutral, I'm glad for the Giants and sad for the Patriots.
Have a great week!
