Thursday October 1

Wow, where has this year gone?? I know personally for me, the year has has sort of been lost in depression and grief. I never expected that 2009 would bring tragedy to my family. I never expected to loose my youngest son, to a dangerous horrible "game" (www.chokinggame.net) But these things happen to the best of us. We learn how to live life differently, we learn just how much time at home is ok, and when it is time to get out among other folk, for our own sanity sake.
Life happens, either you live it or you don't!! Not living life is hard, barely existing is hard. God did not create us to live that way, he created us to have abundant life. Even more abundant is what the Scriptures, say.

This post was not started to be a sermonette, LOL. I just stopped by to check in for the day. What is happening in your homes today? It is very overcast here, looks like the sky may just open up and rain buckets. It is still nice and cool, just cloudy. Makes me want chili, yes chili. I believe I will make a pot of chili (with 99 cents a pound ground beef, love those manager specials)for supper tonight. I didnt menu plan this week (bad Cindy) So I kind of have just flown by the seat of my pants, but I have cooked every night. Monday night we had bacon sandwiches, Tuesday night we had chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, Last night was tuna casserole, green beans, and homemade biscuits. Tonight is chili. Hmmmm I think I will have Dave stop for a bag of fritos and then we can have frito chili pies..YUMMY!!

My friend Linda loves chili, in fact I don't think I know anyone who loves it more than she does.

I hope you are all having a blessed day, please leave a comment and share your day!!

Today's HINT The holidays are fastly approaching, which means shopping for presents, for decorations and for holiday cooking, before you start out, Take stock of what you have. Do you have gifts in your gift drawer that would work for presents? Do you have a turkey in your freezer that really needs cooked? Why buy more?
