Say Yes To The Boys 'Round Here - #Music

It is once again Monday. The days are flying. It is no surprise as to why. I pray for readiness.
Photo: I just want to start each day remembering that I'm blessed!
My husband just shared this really cool and new song with me and I realize, I couldn't wait to share it with y'all.

Of course you probably have already heard it, and if so, great. Here it is again! I really was surprised with how it started out and then realizing what kind of song it was. Then I was even more surprised to see Beyonce in it and then I realize once again it was all three of them :)

It's a good song. I probably will listen to it again and see about how it meshes with me.


Now we can't forget the theme is: This week's theme is  your favorite Rock n' Roll  or Country Male singers! 
And I love me some Blake! Well come on he is kinda cool...
And here is one he is doing the way I like :)

Joy And Joy Killers

What is one thing that brings you joy? 
Is your joy dependent on outside or inside influences?

Today I almost didn't go to church.
I  was walking around yesterday in a battle with myself and my mind. Maybe it was also spiritual warfare.

Saturday went good. We got to sleep in and late in the evening we went to the store for groceries. Turns out my card expired June 30. Seriously why wasn't there another card in the mail for me? I'm usually up on all these things.

Well the card declined and the machine refused all my other two cards. WOW! That is just crazy! I tried the ATM and no go.

In the end I had to walk away from my lovely cart of groceries.  I felt embarrassed, but also odd in wondering why none of my other cards worked. I was so on point with being on budget too!

Oh and yes I was very angry about it all. Bah I still had pizza to drown my sorrows. Good thing I had that ordered before.

So the battle was on about why I should NOT go to church. I should rest. I don't want to see anyone and smile. I was angry. We wont be able to miss church when hubs return and blah blah blah the spiritual battle continued.

I woke up this morning at 6am and was delayed at home until 10:45. And yes worship begins at 10:45 and I have to drive at least 30 minutes to get to church!!!

I told myself that we would be in church worshipping, even if it's the last 10 minutes of the sermon.

When we got there, it was the last few minutes of the last song.

We got to share in communion and offering. My kids were with me, they were awake and they saw how absolutely fun our Pastor can be. They also get to learn about communion and took part in the offering plate.

God won.
Satan lost.

And that is how we give glory to our God.

And the message was about Joy!

"Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be." ---- Abraham Lincoln
Joy And Joy Killers
Take away:

Joy Killer #1: Circumstances
Choice #1 : See my circumstances from God's perspective, in spite of....
Philippians 1:18-21 

My circumstances: I didn't get any groceries, but we do still have food at home and will not starve. Why was I angry? Snap decision: I didn't get my way. I was not a good model at all with my children in full view. And the whole time I was angry, I kept thinking about my kids and what they are seeing? But did I shut up? Noooo. And even when I shut up, I could feel my mouth being pulled to keep going!!

Joy Killer #2: People (This made the whole church laugh)
Choice #2: Serve people, even those that make my life difficult   - Philippians 2:2-5

Oh yea what's wrong with those people who aren't monitoring my life to know that I'll need another card before I go to the store :)

We begin to dislike people because we begin to think that we have rights.
#1: I have a right to be happy! But God ask us to serve, he never said, sit down and get served. Jesus did not come to get served either!


Joy Killer #3: Things
Choice #3: All I really need is Jesus   - Philippians 3:8-9

It might sound all pious and such, but seriously: No one can steal your joy when your joy is Jesus :)


Joy Killer #4: Worries
Choice #4: Cast all my worries on Jesus and trust him to take care of them and all -- Philippians 4:6-7

Worry is about something that doesn't even exist!!

Which one or more of these are you battling with? When will you get joy? 

Of course, if you have a medical condition and need help, visit a doctor. Chemical imbalances are no fun, but if you are healthy, why aren't you joyful?


Joy! Spread Some! :)

What Lengths Will He Go For The Woman He Loves - Jaded

Are you having any time to read as yet? Or just too busy running around doing work, kids and crashing?

I hope you can carve out even a 10 minutes somewhere just for you to replenish and read.

Happy Summer
coverrevealJaded Jaded_highTo what lengths will a man go for the woman he loves? Reed Dartmouth will learn the answer to those questions time and time again throughout his relationship with Jade Montgomery. When he first meets her as a young, gentle boy the heartache from losing his mother only a year before is still fresh and painful. Jade is different from anyone else he’s ever met; tough, sassy, and even a bit cruel. But she’s also the same as he is: she knows what it’s like to lose a parent.

Their friendship begins and a bond like no other is formed. Time passes and Reed learns that not only are Jade’s parents dead, they were murdered and she’s made an oath to one day bring them justice. No matter the price. As they grow older their love evolves but for Jade, old habits die hard and she can’t stop hurting those she loves the most. Even in the midst of searching for her parents’ killers, passion ignites and jealousy burns as Jade tests Reed’s devotion for her. Will she push him too far?

Coming Soon July 2014!

We Were Made To Thrive - #Music

It's been a very interesting summer so far. I'm so delighted to have my children with me. They do enrich my life. I can't figure out why so many parents want so much to get rid of their children.

This song is so beautiful. It's one of my favorites! I hope you enjoy and I look forward to visiting with you all.

Don't forget to visit the hosts and enter all the giveaways!

HUGS and Happy Thriving!

Here in this worn and weary land
Where many a dream has died
Like a tree planted by the water
We never will run dry

So living water flowing through
God, we thirst for more of You
Fill our hearts and flood our souls with one desire

Just to know You and to make You known
We lift Your name on high
Shine like the sun, make darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more than ordinary lives
It's time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive

Into Your word, we're digging deep
To know our Father's heart
Into the world, we're reaching out
To show them who You are

Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable
Love unstoppable, anything is possible

Soupe a l'oignon - French Onion Soup - The Hundred-Foot Journey

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

Soupe a l'oignon - French Onion Soup 

2lb 3oz Onions, sliced
5 1/4 oz Unsalted Butter
2 oz Flour
8 oz Dry white wine
1 1/2 qt. Water
1 pc Bouquet garni
1 3/4 oz Glace de viande (optional), for color and flavor
Salt and white pepper
1/2 pc French baguette, sliced
3 1/4 oz Gruyere cheese, grated
3 1/4 oz Butter, clarified
4 fl. oz Heavy cream (optional)
1 oz Port wine (optional)
3 1/2 oz Gruyere cheese, grated

Method: 
1. Preheat oven to 400F
2. Peel the onions, remove the roots, and slice thinly. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook the onions until soft and lightly colored.
3. Add the flour and cook until it starts to take on some color (1 to 2 minutes).
4. Deglaze with white wine and allow the liquid to reduce by half before adding the water. Add the bouquet garni, season to taste, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and leave to cook for 45 minutes.
Optional: Add some glace de viande for more color.
5. Slice the baguette and lightly toast it in the oven, then lightly butter the top side of each slide and sprinkle with cheese. Place the bread back in the oven until the cheese is just melted but not colored.
6. Set aside.
7. Remove the bouquet garni from the soup and discard.
Optional: Whisk the port wine into the cream and ladle some hot soup into the cream to temper. Off the heat, stir the cream back into the hot soup.

To Serve:
Ladle the soup into ovenproof bowls.
Top with croutons to completely cover.
Sprinkle with more cheese. Arrange the bowls on a baking sheet. Place the tray under a broiler or salamander until the cheese is browned.
2. Serve Immediately.

The movie comes out in August! Put it on your calendar!

Yearly Summer Camps In Acadiana

As a child I didn't get the opportunity to go to a camp. I would have liked to do something like that. I might have been terrified to go, but then I figured I"d learn so much, make friends, get social and have a good time nonetheless.  However things like that are not offered to children in an orphanage.

Now that I have children, I try to find all the camps they can attend. I should say the mostly free camps because our budget can only do so much.

I think it is good to ensure your children stay involved, stimulated and challenged during the Summer months! After all, they are still growing!

Did you go to camps? Do you let your kids go to camps? 

And so without further ado, I want to share a list of really fun camps that happens right here in Acadiana. I will add to the list and of course I might share other camps outside our state!

Pinecove Camp In The City
Now this is a super awesome camp that is in many states and cities. Just go to their website and find one that will match your child's age and your budget. Yes sometimes they do offer scholarships too!

Pine Cove is coming to your town with all the fun activities, great staff, and life-changing ministry that happens in a week of camp.

After five days with some of the most fun and exciting college students in the country, your child will be energized for the upcoming year and ready for their own spiritual journey.
