God has answered sooo many prayers for me here recently, so I wanted to share a few with you. Now these aren't really "BIG" things to pray about, but THEY WERE BIG TO ME...and my God cares about what I care about! =) 1. I got my Aug./Sep. Taste of Home in the mail...and I squealed with joy right by the mail box, and then looked up to see the street guard watching me. =D (I've had at least one of my issues get stolen or lost, and when they only come every 2 months, that's a LONG time to wait for the new magazine when you LOVE to cook and bake like I do.) 2. I had not received a Ladies Companion magazine since the Valentines issue, 2 issues must've gotten lost or stolen too,...SO I WAS THRILLED TO SEE THE JULY/AUG. ISSUE ARRIVE!!!! 3. Everything that I've been sewing, has been without a pattern, for I don't have any patterns here. About 2 months ago, My DEAR Moma mailed me a small box with a few basic patterns in it....BUT I hadn't heard or seen anything from that box. ALMOST EVERYDAY I would ask Jesus to PLEASE watch over those patterns and bring them to me....AND HE DID...they came in last Friday!!!
~I've made A LOT of bread in my life time since I started baking bread when I was 11, had my own bread business out of my home in 4 different states, and was the baker at G.B.S., however, as far I can remember, I've never made "Sourdough Bread" until this past Saturday. I guess I never lived around anyone who had a starter for it. I got to thinking that I could probably make my own starter, so I wrote and asked Sherri Wolfe if she had a recipe for the starter and directions for making sourdough bread, and she emailed it to me. Thanks Sherri! Here are my 3 loaves of Sourdough, Phillip Loves Sourdough bread!~
4. Also, some of our dear friends bought Noah a bike, but here all of the bikes pedal like a 10 speed, and so when he would try to pedal, it was much easier to go backwards than frontwards. No matter how much we tried to teach him, He couldn't seem to get the hang of pedaling his bike front-wards. I was a little "worried", and would breathe a prayer about it every now and then, just 'cause I wanted him to be able to ride his bike. (When I'd ask Phillip, "Do you think he'll EVER learn to ride his bike?" Phillip would tease me and say, "No, I think he'll still be trying to learn to ride a bike when he's 20." =) Well, HE LEARNED ALL BY HIMSELF LAST FRIDAY!!! YEA! 5. God also helped Phillip to find a good Bible Book store with a lot of classic holiness books in Spanish, for our church people to read and learn more about God and His Word. So, we're counting our blessings this week, even more than we usually do...FOR GOD IS AWESOME....all of the time! =)
