Have you ever dragged your body out of bed, and all you want is a cup of coffee? Well, that's me today. My husband is teaching his Monday class, I'm all alone, the coffee pot is all ready, because he always makes my coffee...but it is programmed to brew at a certain hour. I've tried to override it, unplug and restart, reprogram, all to no avail. All I want is a cup of coffee!!!
Very soon this town will have something that I've previously had to travel many miles to get...a meal at Cracker Barrel!!! That's right, I'm finally going to live in a town where I can have the Cracker Barrel Week Night Specials, without leaving the state.
My daughter Julie has been sick with the flu since last Thursday. Seeing how sick she's been has made me rethink my "I don't need a flu shot" stance. She's been scary sick. Thankfully, Cassidy has had her flu shot for the year.
I made some homemade chicken noodle soup to take to Julie. I've read it can actually help you to heal of upper respiratory illnesses.
I also made some oatmeal rolls to go with the soup. I made these with white flour instead of wheat. They turned out really soft and light.
Bill's contribution to making his Julie Bear feel better, was flowers...
I think when someone is ill, it's important to minister to them in a tangible way. How many times has someone been sick, and you think about them, and pray for them, but then don't call them?
Sometimes we get so caught up in our own lives, that we forget to reach out to others, in ways that let them see our love for them. When we serve others, we are serving our Lord...
Oh, the coffee just started brewing!!!! Have a great Monday!
