Sourdough Bread Inspo

I don't have official New Year's resolutions. But I have a list of things I want to learn this year. Starting with sourdough bread.

Pictured: Our daughter inspires me with her beautiful loaves, like this one from our anniversary dinner in December.

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11 ESV

Back to BSF

I have missed my Bible Study Fellowship leaders' meetings. I love opening God's Word together and praying. Today I was able to attend again. Praise the Lord!

Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:30-31 ESV

Turned a Corner

I am happy to report that I have officially turned a corner in my recovery. A couple nights ago I could roll over in bed and even sleep on my side. 

And today I made it to church. I can walk if I take it slow. Now to start adding more activity each day.

Pictured: My husband made a batch of what we call, "Emergency Breakfast Burritoes" for me to have for lunches. Just heat and enjoy. He did a great job grilling them before freezing them.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV

Lipstick Plant Flowers

We have another flowering plant. The lipstick plant from my niece is doing well. But this reminds me that I was going to find a place to hang it. I will put that on my list of things to do when I feel better.

The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:12 ESV

Start My Day

I have a faithful companion as I rest and recuperate at home. She takes naps at the end of my bed. But some days she wants me to move from the bed to the living room. Like this morning. She barked at me until I got up and got dressed. And she didn't even want to go outside. Might as well start my day and listen to the Bible Study Fellowship lecture online.

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21 ESV

Happy Plant Update

I wish I knew what this plant is. I started it from a leaf from my mom's plant. It is doing so well that it now has flowers!

BSF at Home

I miss being with my group of ladies on Wednesday mornings. Hopefully I will feel better soon and can attend Bible Study Fellowship. Meanwhile, I can keep up with reading the passages, answering the questions, and listening to the lecture online. Glad I can do that.


Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 ESV

Hide and Seek Decoy

Since the weather is cold and wet, we can't play hide and seek outside. With our pup. So our son hid under a blanket on the dining room bench.

We put our dog's toys under a blanket on the couch to look like someone was there. She was convinced he was under there! Pulled everything off just to make sure.

And that's how we entertain our dog and ourselves.

Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. Genesis 2:19 ESV

Need More Time

I was able to drive to the store today and do a little shopping. But time on my feet is limited. I was back to icing my leg and elevating my feet when I got home. I need more time to heal before I am ready to do more.

Therefore confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. James 5:16 ESV

Close Enough

My husband and I both agree. We are so thankful our youngest is attending college close enough to come home for the weekend. Works for us! And our pup.

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. Psalm 36:9 ESV

Steak Dinner Love

Thanks to our son and daughter-in-law for hosting us for an amazing dinner and game night. Bonus: It was great to get out of the house.

Pictured: How do you like your steak?

Behold, what I have seen to be good and fitting is to eat and drink and find enjoyment in all the toil with which one toils under the sun the few days of his life that God has given him, for this is his lot. Ecclesiastes 5:18 ESV

Thinking of Dad

Thinking of my dear dad today. He would have been 81 years old. I miss him, but I am thankful for the years we had with him. I'm even more thankful that I know I will see him again in heaven.

Pictured: A fun old photo of my parents.

We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. Psalm 78:4 ESV

Winter Weather Watch

We've had a little bit of everything. In the last 30 minutes. Hail, snow, and rain. Now sunny skies. Gives me something to watch out the window while I elevate my feet and ice my leg intermittently.

My leg (upper thigh to be exact) is still very tender but seems to be improving. The doctor says I developed a hematoma from my last intramuscular injection. Just a couple more weeks of recuperation and weather watching and I should be fine.

Pictured: My view out the front door yesterday.

Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14 ESV

Snowy Light Love

It took a while for the snow to start today. But when it did, it came down in a flurry. I sent a text to my husband asking if he could leave work early. Just as he pulled in the driveway! Good to get off the roads and stay home if you can!

Pictured: A few Christmas lights make it magical!

He gives snow like wool; he scatters frost like ashes. Psalm 147:16 ESV
