This month I learned:
When you visit the drive-thru with your daughter for a quick lunch of a veggie burrito and drink and she says she doesn't want anything, don't believe her. We made it as far as the parking lot when (because "it smells so good") we got back in the line and went through for ANOTHER veggie burrito and drink. The nice worker pretended not to notice we were just there for the exact same thing a few cars ago.
A lovely lady might stop you outside World Market to tell you that you have a "nice face", which I thought was nice. Until she turns up in both the aisles you are looking in. Then it feels weird and you decide to stay in the same aisles as your husband. In her defense she was probably the nicest of ladies. But she could have also been an ax murder - you just never know (grin).
Sometimes all you need on a rainy, dreary afternoon is a sweet movie and a pair of warm, fuzzy socks on your cold feet.
Chef Chloe Coscarelli isn't just another pretty face. That girl can cook some serious vegan food. You can find her web site and information on her books as well as find many recipes to try HERE.
There is just something to be said for the soothing sounds of vintage vinyl. My parents added their collection to my pretty dismal one and I am SO enjoying the vast array of tunes. Thanks Mom and Dad!
No matter what you have been facing, don't give up, don't give in, just keep holding on to Jesus because He will see you through. January was a fresh beginning after a year that saw some tough battles and mighty bruises. With that battle came a final surrender (why do I fight on my own so long...) and with surrender, as He takes up the battle I was not meant to fight, comes peace. The Peace that passes all understanding, the Peace that sustains my heart, heals it whole again.
The hillside near the bottom of our road (and the main, albeit only 2 lane, highway) slid twice in the past week or so but those wonderful Department of Transportation workers were willing to brave the weather and even work into the dark to get one lane back open for traffic. Bless your hearts! I usually avoid the highway, but many depend on it, and instead cross the bridge over the river and take the "scenic route" - but that road is also down to one lane in a section due to a massive sinkhole. Hmmm maybe I will just be staying home for a while...
Happy almost February to you all!
