Down Time


Some days, are just quiet.

Yesterday my mom and I, my two sisters and two nieces, went to the little cupcake shop for a bit of a girl's day out. It was fun and very yummy. Then we walked around some of the little vintage shops, just looking at stuff. It was a nice time to visit and very relaxing.

Today, seems very quiet. I practiced the guitar, (I know 4 chords now! Not that I know yet what to do with them. Also, I found out that you can hold the guitar on your left leg when playing the classical guitar instead of the right leg, so that your leg holds the guitar instead of your left hand, which was why I could not make the chords. Every time I successfully make a chord, I thank the Lord again. I was so sure it would be impossible for me.) took my walks, listened to Zac Poonen and spent some time in the Word.

I've been watching cooking shows on tv. Yes. I know that tv is evil, but I have been learning so much about herbs and spices and how to cook meat from Rachel Ray and OMG Jamie Oliver who is like a crazy super genius when it comes to cooking. My mom and I have tried some of his recipes and did not know that food could taste so good! I think my learning how to cook, is also from the Lord. I mean, you guys don't know me. Everyone, including my kids and me, believed that I was incapable of cooking. (You know, except for tacos, spaghetti, and mac and cheese, but who can't cook those things!) I use to pray that my next husband was a chef, who was praying this very minute for a woman who loved washing the dishes. (seriously - I do love washing dishes, but don't ask me how I feel about cleaning the bathroom.)

They say that children grow physically, when they are asleep. Like I was telling you before about this house, I think the Lord works on us, when it is quiet and it does not seem like anything is happening in our lives.

Thank you so much, my wonderful heavenly Father. For the amazing peace and quiet I am feeling when the rest of the world is in such extreme chaos. Thank you for always loving me, always meeting every single need, so that I have want of nothing. Thank you for teaching me how to cook, how to play the guitar, how to have faith in You and trust you in everything, and how to be Your daughter. Thank you so much, in Jesus name. Amen.

Minko!
That is SO FUNNY! It reminds me of an old Cheech and Chong song, "I only know 3 chords!"

You can learn 'smoke on the water' you don't even have to know chords for that one!
