Had I

Had I been Joseph's mother
I'd have prayed
protection from his brothers
"God, keep him safe.
He is so young,
so different from
the others."
she never knew
there would be slavery
and prison, too.

Had I been Moses' mother
I'd have wept to keep my little son:
praying she might forget
the babe drawn from the water
of the Nile.
Had I not kept
him for her
nursing him the while,
was he not mine?
--and she
but Pharaoh's daughter?

Had I been Daniel's mother
I should have pled
"Give victory!
--this Babylonian horde
godless and cruel--
Don't let him be a captive
--better dead,
Almighty Lord!"

Had I been Mary,
Oh, had I been she,
I would have cried
as never a mother cried,
"Anything, O God,

With such prayers importunate
my finite wisdom would assail
Infinite Wisdom
God, how fortunate
Infinite Wisdom
should prevail.

I pinned this recipe a long time ago on Pinterest as I remembered my mom making these doughnuts when I was a kid! Wow...that was a really bad run on sentence...
Let me just tell you they were delicious and so easy!
*Put oil in skillet about a 1/4 inch to fill.
*As the oil begins to warm, take the package of biscuits-do not use the flaky kind or layers! Punch out hole into center of biscuit.
*Place biscuits into skillet, flip when golden brown.
*When both sides are golden place onto paper towel to absorb extra oil.
*Dip into melted butter-I melted one tube of butter.
*Coat with powder sugar and enjoy!

10 on Tuesday

1. We leave for ND bright and early in the morning. It's an 8 hour drive, hope all goes smoothly.
2. From the clothes basket to the wash machine, to the dryer and finally to being folded our socks seem to complete a disappearing act. I'm going to buy small mesh bags for each family member to store their dirty socks. Then all I have to do is throw the bag in the wash and the socks should stay together.
3. I am looking forward to receiving a Bible study book in the mail that deals with the struggle to conceive. I found a group on the Internet and they are sending me a free copy! Yay!
4. Yesterday was a successful day of getting things done. I'm really hoping today follows suit.
5. I am thankful for giving people. A lady in my church gave me 2 scrapbooks and paper for the albums!
6. Did you know Burger King has the best chocolate chip cookies?! Yummy!
7. We enjoyed a couple days with my sister and brother in law this past weekend.
8. How often do you clean out your refrigerator? I cleaned mine out yesterday and I'm thinking it needs to become a weekly chore.
9. Did my garage sale this past weekend. It was a total bust. Pathetic.
10. Ok, I'm hoping that I will actually accomplish another blog post this week. Happy Tuesday!

Bad Garbage Truck

Yesterday morning I took Klayton outside to play. It was garbage day as well. As Klayton is kicking his ball around the yard, we start to hear a low rumble in the distance. Klayton immediately stops kicking his ball and freezes. As the rumble neared, Klayton slowly walked over to me all the while searching for the rumble! As a garbage truck appeared, he picked up his pace and quickly snuggled into my lap to hide his face until the garbage truck disappeared. I think he may have a slight fear of garbage trucks...or at least the sound they make!

1. Good morning Tuesday. I must admit I would have preferred to be asleep while Tuesday was welcomed; but alas, that was not to be.
2. Looking forward to a good day. Hopefully spending time with a friend, getting a much over do hair trim, and just spending time with my little man.
3. Did you read my Lazy Cookies recipe from last week?! If not scroll down...they were scrumptious! Next time I might cut back on the chocolate chips since I didn't do the mini chips. Yesterday, I made them again with white chocolate chips and chocolate cake mix...yep, still scrumptious!
4. Last night I pulled out my scrapbooking supplies and actually scrapped 4 pages! Oh how I've missed scrapbooking...
5. Apparently, I've been in a blogging spirit as of late. Have you noticed ALL my postings in the last week?
6. I shop at the Dollar General quite frequently...I realize it's not a good idea to buy some things there. But, to not even be able to buy a cold bottle of Dr. Pepper? A little disheartening. I made said purchase yesterday and was eager to enjoy the cold drink with my popcorn as I watched a little Monday night comedy. The enjoyment dissipated quickly when upon the first swig I realized it didn't taste right and upon reading the label it expired over a month ago!
7. Trying to decide if I should just go ahead and renew my library books or take the time to find them all so I can return them?
8. Really enjoyed having my brother and his little family here for a visit. It was to short...wish they lived a little closer. Added bonus: my lil nephew!
9. I kind of wish it was pouring rain right about now. I love to lay in bed with the windows opened just right so as not to let the rain in; but yet allowing me to listen to its pitter patter against the window glass.
10. Ok, 20 minutes later I'm obviously still awake; but I do feel a yawn coming on. Yep, there it is...have a Happy Tuesday!

I love to take pictures and I admit that I am not a pro! But, since my nephew was here I just had to have a little fun and play around...you know since Klayton hardly sits still for me anymore!
