March Randomness

There is a lot of March Madness going on at our house. College basketball games - 64 to 32 to 16 to 8 to 4 to 2 to 1 reigning champion team. Got the picture? Games and more games. It is fun, to a point :0)

What fills your month of March? I share some of our randomness:

1) We made a new friend from New Jersey. Lisa, a professional Deaf interpreter, came and stayed a weekend in our B & B while working on a project for the Deaf at Baptist Church Planters. Her reservation? Tumbleweed.

2) Remember the emptied closet? The next phase has officially begun. Clear the drywall dust. Chuck has been busy! (I love this handyman!!)

The Making of a New Master Bedroom

3) I tried out a new recipe yesterday for lunch for my Bible study ladies. Introducing Crab Quiche. I think the gals were being honest when they said they liked it and wanted the recipe. I served it with my own simple version of spinach salad (spinach, mandarin oranges, red onion slices and pecans with a light raspberry vinaigrette). The sweet finish: Banana Split Cake. If you're reading - Paula, Judy, Kim, Dee Dee, and Michelle - you're the best!!

Green Goodness

4) I made an official executive decision in our household. The scales have been put away. Out of sight. Probably not out of mind. Enough said on the subject. Maybe ever.


Do you find it easy sometimes to lose your aim in life? I do. 

I was reminded just this past week of this phrase from the book of Philippians.

This one thing I do. Words penned by Paul. Singleness of purpose.

What was Paul's one thing?  To become more and more like Jesus.

Time is flying. If we are keeping up at all with the world news, there is an urgency about the hour. We can't afford to be like the hare in the Tortoise and the Hare fable, in which the hare took a nap in the race.

Wake up. Game on. Focus. Perspective.

Applies to more than good college basketball!

With a spring in my wing!
