Days and Praise and Glaze

I had one of those days today.

Freezer catastrophe, gas leak, Dr's appointment that was not fun. ahem., various and assorted small things that made me want to throw something. You know the kind of day? Thankfully, mercifully, these days do not happen all that often. I will write about the freezer catastrophe some day soon. I'm. not. ready. yet. Still. too. fresh. Must. go. throw. something.

With all of the struggles in the day, God gave me some beautiful things.

A gorgeous day that melted some of my tension away...

A sweet friend who made my day without even knowing it...

A HI-larious little boy who played peek-a-boo and melted my heart clear down to my toesies...

A little twinkle-toed little girl who showed grace and art...

A brown-eyed girl whose smile warmed my insides...

A lifelong friend and hubby extraordinaire who made my heart burst...

Psalm 150 - which made my heart sing...


Love it how in the emotion of a bad day, I have even more capacity to praise God, because my emotions are already right there, at the surface. Thank You, Lord, for giving me the Psalms to read today.

*************************************************************

We interrupt this explosion of feelings of thankfulness to bring you an important message:

(How's that for the lousiest transition evah?)

I must give y'all a Foody Friday category. Let's go with spicy food. Not necessarily HOT food, but something with a kick. No tater tot casserole here. Think ethnic, or barbecue, or Mexican (I guess that's ethnic, but it's a whole category on it's own, ain't it?), or even herb-y. Have fun with it.

See you on Friday!

I am sooo sorry about your pork! I feel your pain! I'm sorry too that I talked it up so highly. I did that before I we had the pork chops (we hadn't had them for awhile and forgot that they were grissly and well, pretty bad.) I heard yours were too. Sorry, but now it doesn't matter anyway, right?! :) Next time it's all BEEF baby!!
