*But wait in faith. Express your unstaggering confidence in Him; for unfaithful, untrusting waiting, is but an insult to the Lord.* Morning 8/30

I despise the thought that I could be labeled unfaithful, untrusting, or insulting to my Savior. But in fact, I have acted as such. Forgive me, Lord.

Used to express triumph upon finding or discovering something.

I am so tickled that I thought to wear a pair of 20 year old glasses, while I work on my computer. Now I can see without holding my bifocals at a crazy angle!

Let me explain. Ordinarily I wear contacts: one for distance and one for close-up for the entire day. Also, I own a pair of prescription bifocals, which I wear for approximately one hour in the early morning and one hour in the evening. But I have noticed that the bifocal glasses are not comfortable to wear while working on the computer. If I take them off completely, the screen is a blur. If I wear just a set of reading glasses, the screen is still a blur. Hmmm What about those very old glasses in which the distance prescription is too weak. TaaDaa!

Are you impressed that I could find those *old* glasses. What a pack rat!!

Click on the time to leave a comment. One day I will figure out how to change that>

Sermon Recap

*Lead me not into temptation* Part Two was today's sermon topic. This is the sixth petition in the Lord's Prayer. I know I have studied this prayer before: when I was very young and memorized it; when I was catechized as a teenager; once in a Ladies Bible Study; with my children; and now under the care of a very fine teaching elder. Just last week at a funeral when the congregation prayed this together, the words were felt even more deeply.

When I say those five words, I am asking the Lord to 1)keep me from temptation (keep me from caving in) ref John 17:15; 2)keep me strong in the face of temptation (make me aware of Your presence immediately) ref John 17:11 and 3)recover me (sanctify) quickly from the effects of temptation ref John 17:17

Hear the Word of the Lord!

Favorite Quote

I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

I have lots of favorites, but this one came to mind rather quickly when I was reading Donna's Friday Feast.

Garlic Cream Cheese

8 oz cream cheese (softened to room temp)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 lg cloves garlic, pressed

Mash together all ingredients. I use a potato masher :)

Serve as sandwich spread; it especially enhances tomato sandwiches or BLTs.

Or serve as cheese spread with crackers or melba toast.
