Strangely Out Of Place

Strangely Out Of Place

Strangely Out Of Place And I say, Perished is my strength and my expectation from the LORD. The memory of my suffering and homelessness is bitterness and poison. My soul has them continually in remembrance and is bowed down within me. But this I recall and therefore have I hope and expectation: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, says my inner self; therefore will I hope and...

Summer Salsa

Posted by on Jul 18, 2014 in Condiments, Food, Mexican | 0 comments

Summer Salsa (must post picture!) I’ve got this neighbor…and she just loves this salsa! And her tomato harvest runneth over. So, for you dear neighborly friend, I present my favorite canned salsa recipe. Salsa (adjust heat–pepper usage–to preference) 6 cups chopped, cored and peeled tomatoes (a “Victorio” makes this quick work) 5 cups seeded bell peppers (green and yellow make for pretty contrast) 5 cups chopped onions 2 1/2 cups chopped and seed hot peppers (a mixture of jalapeno,...

Do You Know What’s Beyond You?

Do You Know What’s Beyond You?

Do You Know What’s Beyond You? Do you know that feeling you get when you behold a stunning sunset? Do you know the overwhelming joy of coddling your newborn child? Have you known the exultation of true love? These are but a few of the earthly glories that offer us glimpses of heaven. Perhaps you also know the wounds of a broken childhood, or the loss of a loved one; maybe you’ve agonized as someone you’ve loved suffered unspeakably. Reminders–these and so many more–that while the...

German Chocolate Caramel Brownies

German Chocolate Caramel Brownies

German Chocolate Caramel Brownies Yup, you caught me. I cut ‘em while they were still piping hot. Of course they’re a gooey mess. Of course I couldn’t wait; they’re  irresistible. How irresistible you ask? Enough that four pans of these gooey, decadent bars were once  baked in the Fisher kitchen and then allegedly FedEx’d to a birthday boy in Ohio. Overnight. Except for unwrapping an entire package of caramels, this version of brownies goes together quickly. If you have kids, they make...

Beautiful   Beautiful— what I hear in the laughter and the fun of a daughter and a son   what will ever be in the heartbeat of all I feel, for it is most real   Love is beautiful sharpened by iron—it’s a holy force, I’m enlivened by it’s healing course oh God be praised! I stand amazed; ‘cause Love is . . .   Beautiful— what I see mixed with sorrow and the tears of so many years   it’s what I find beneath the pain of nagging flaws just because   Love is beautiful sharpened...

Productive and Successful: A Prayer

Productive and Successful: A Prayer

Productive and Successful: A Prayer Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3 (CEB) A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men. Proverbs 18:16 (AMP) I stumbled upon a couple of verses last night that felt timely. I felt like I wanted to claim whatever power these verses might have in my life–to remind God, like, “You know Sir, this is what You’ve promised . . .” But before I felt released to pray such things, I needed to better understand...

Remember to Roar!

Remember to Roar!

Remember to Roar! A few weeks ago, my daughter, sensing just how hip I truly am, sent me a song to listen to. Not actually being so very hip, I’d probably never have heard it had she not sent it my way. Upon watching an endearing video on YouTube, I was downright giddy about some of the song’s imagery. And those lyrics seemed to cut through the airwaves and pierce my slumbering inner warrior. No, it’s not actually a “Christian” song. But that didn’t keep me from having a pretty strong...
