This morning’s service was wonderful. Pastor Brooks spoke from II Timothy 3 and other passages about the importance of the Scriptures in our every day lives. The Bible isn’t just a historically accurate, well-written piece of literature; it’s an authoritative compilation of everything we need for this life and it’s written by God Himself. And yet we treat it like just another book on the shelf that we’ve been meaning to read. I’m looking forward to Part II tonight. The fourth graders had fun with their sword drills in Sunday School today too.
After church, we came home for a quick lunch. Bryan made himself some hotdogs and coleslaw, while I fixed sweet potato hash for myself (from some of the veggies I got at the market yesterday). Here it is:
Recipe: Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in skillet. Add 1 large (or 2 small) peeled, cubed sweet potato, and 1 small vidalia onion with salt, pepper, fresh sage and thyme. Cook 5-7 minutes, until onions are transluscent and potatoes are soft but not mushy. Meanwhile, fry up 1-2 eggs to serve on top of the hash. Delicious!
After lunch, we went upstairs and I organized the office in an attempt to be ready for school. I had put away my “desk” (a folding table) from using it with my Girls on the Run functions, and it was time to pull it back out, sort all the papers that had been piling up, and prep for school. My life is about to get really busy, starting with my first day back to school tomorrow, so I needed to make sure my space was neat so I’ll be able to be efficient. Here’s the results:
While I did this, Bryan folded all the laundry and I think he did the dishes too. 🙂 Now to head to evening service and maybe try to convince Bryan to go swimming afterwards. I love Sundays!
