Really, the whole month of January could be used to review the previous year. Did you discover anything new last year? I sure did!
- New dishwasher soap–those cubes that have rinse agent included; it works SO much better, even those dishes that had been smoky for awhile, come clean after a few washes!
- Leave-in conditioner, for your hair.
- Corn pasta–mmmmm, so good!! And pretty well the same price as regular.
- Basmati rice: just discovered this recently, because of the news about the other rice being full of arsnic; plus, apparently brown rice tears up your insides–it happened to be on Sam’s “intolerant” list too. (Isn’t it great when you discover that something you didn’t like that much anyway, is not as good for you as they’d thought?) Basmati, which has the least arsnic (if any), is very light-tasting, cooks up quicker, AND it’s delicious!
- Pulled Chicken–another mmmmm!! And so easy to make for a crowd!
- Naan bread; no-sugar bread (which tastes exactly the same), hmmmm… sure was a lot of food discoveries last year!
- Downtown Abby… although, so far we finished up to where one of the main guys die, so I’m not sure I want to continue…
I’m sure there were lots more, I’ll have to come back and add them when I think of them. ;)
Since this morning’s verses happen to go with my One Word… (a rebuke for the church at Sardis)–
“I see right through your work. You have a reputation for vigor and zest, but you’re dead, stone-dead. Up on your feet! Take a deep breath! Maybe there’s life in you yet. But I wouldn’t know it by looking at your busywork; nothing of God’s work has been completed. Your condition is desparate…” (Revelation 3:1-2)
Isn’t it interesting that they could be busy and have the appearance of “vigor”, but still be so dead? Everything you do could be good, but the point is, you need to check with the Boss to see if it is the right thing at this time. If we lose our connection with him, our service loses its life. Oh, and don’t forget the deep breath. ;)
Help us to understand, Lord.
