Always Ask For Fresh Ground Pepper

It's time for you to indulge in salad Dear Bloggers. How does one indulge? First you must use the right plate. It must be VERY expensive, but I got mine at a thrift store for just pennies.
Mine is an Eschenbach dish from Bavaria, Germany, probably made in the 1960's. Next, tell the waiter, in this case, myself, that you want fresh cracked pepper, because you want to feel special, like at fancy restaurants. Now enjoy!
Why is it that when we are at expensive restaurants the waiter acts like he is giving us pure grated gold when he brings 'round the pepper grinder? We are spellbound as he grinds the black flakes over our entree, as if we've never experienced such luxury. You owe it to yourself Dear Bloggers. Grind that pepper over your salad whether by land or by sea, or  by mobile home. You deserve it!

Blessings, Kathi

Volunteering As An Awana Leader

I have discovered the joy of volunteering as an Awana leader. Awana is a club which trains children to memorize Scripture from the Bible. We sing songs, learn the truths from the Bible and play games. I love doing this. My reward is a smile and a wave from these children when I see them at church or school outside of club. That sparkle in their eye when they smile at me gives me such a joy in my heart.
Being a leader includes learning Scripture along with my kids. Right now I'm memorizing Psalm 1:1-6. Also, included is prayer for the kids in my group. I have five children in my Bible training group and I have eight in my game time group. I use the time on the treadmill for praying for them and for learning my Scripture. Because I tend to get lazy I have to make myself do this as an act of obedience to God and to discipline myself in good habits.  I feel wonderful when I do this.

Blessings, Kathi

1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction." Psalm 1:1-6

Track Season Has Begun!

Track has begun! It's going to be so fun to watch the kids run and compete with other schools. I'm so proud of them. We are so thankful for good kids who love to participate and enjoy school. This week our girls will be in a talent show and will sing a duet called "Sea King," by Eisley. My husband and I are looking forward to helping with this fundraiser and listening to them sing.

Blessings, Kathi
