Think on These Things #22 Wishing

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
Luke 18:1

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6
 Has God impressed on your heart something special this week?
Was there a Scripture verse, a song, a quote, a poem or an encouraging word that came your way and caused you to pause.
I'd love for you to share.

Here's how:

Before and After

 My hydrangea bushes are full of buds and were beginning to bloom.
This is how they look after an twelve-day heatwave with several days in the triple digits, even with daily watering.
Fortunately, with diligent attention and watering, my other flowers are doing okay.
Hoping for some rain as we begin another heatwave stretch!

Pepper Jam

This past spring, a friend brought over a dip that our Bible Study Group devoured! It was a simple dip she made with cream cheese and pepper jam. I had never heard of pepper jam and searched for a recipe.

Sweet moments in our Sweet NY-er kids summertime...
 Ryan was picked to play in the All-Star tournament.  His team was undefeated and won the Championship!
 He may be one of the littlest guys on the team (#3) but he brings a lot of skill and talent at center field and 2nd base. (During regular season, he played pitcher, short stop, catcher and 3rd)

Comment from Jill on her fb post: I didn't feel like I was dying even though I look like it ;) Oh...and contrary to the clock, my time was 1:41:10. Didn't start until 11 min after the Kenyans. They were almost done when I started :)
Once again, our daughter, Jill ran in the Boilermaker race in Utica, NY where nearly 14,000 runners participated in the nine point three mile race.
This is the second time she ran and this time to raise funds for an ultrasound for CareNet Pregnancy Center of Central New York, an organization she works for. She raised over $2000!
She works as the director of abstinence education program.
Looking less pained, Jill is on the far right in this photo

Hot July 4th

After an intensely busy May and June, then a nasty stomach bug last Saturday and Sunday, John and I enjoyed a laid back, mid-week 4th of July.
 Early breakfast on the patio before the high 90's temp with matching humidity, included Cream Biscuits with jam and strawberries from a recipe shared by Kitty @Kitty's Kozy Kitchen.
