Sunrise, Sunset

Last Wednesday, this beautiful portrait was painted by Our God. There's something about sunsets that draw me nearer to my Saviour.

From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.
-Psalm 113:3
"When the sun has set, no candle can replace it."
-George R.R. Martin
"There is a sunrise and sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them."
-Jo Walton 
Those who stand at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. from where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.
-Psalm 65:8
Jesus draw me ever nearer
As I labour through the storm.
You have called me to this passage,
and I'll follow, though I'm worn.

May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart's testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.

Jesus guide me through the tempest;
Keep my spirit staid and sure.
When the midnight meets the morning,
Let me love You even more.

Let the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go -
And at the end of this long passage,
Let me leave them at Your throne.

Hopeful in Work

Ecclesiastes 3:22So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them? (NIV)

I got a job!!!!

I'll be starting work soon at the YMCA as a swim lesson instructor. I'm so excited for this chance to work with kids doing something I love!!

Much prayer for guidance in this new journey would be much appreciated:)

Peace out, girl scouts!!

Black and Blue and Mexican All Over

I wish I had taken a better picture (this was taken on my phone), but here it is!!!

My new mexican creation I threw together the other day after church.

1 pint of canned beef
1/2 Tbs. of taco seasoning
1/4 cup corn
1/4 cup black beans
1/2 Tbs. olive oil
Mushrooms to your desire (optional)
Rotel tomaotes to your desire
Chips (I used blue corn chips)
Shredded cheese (also optional)

I heated up my beef in the microwave for 30 seconds to loosen the fat on the top. I then forked it into a pan to reduce the amount of juice I put in with it. If you see that the beef looks dry after a bit of heating in the pan, just add more juice from the can in. Add the taco seasoning.

I started the corn, black beans, and mushrooms in a separate skillet with the oil to sort of "roast" them.

After both items are roasted/ heated through, add on top on chips or just eat it on a plate without chips. Sprinkle with cheese if desired and add Rotel tomatoes for a little kick!

This was a simple meal to make, though it doesn't feed very many people if you have a hungry dad like me :).
