Where Have I Been?

In the four and one half years that I have been blogging, I don’t think I’ve ever gone this long without making a post. “What is the deal?”, you may be wondering. I guess it’s just the busyness of life. I’ve been so involved with revival services, making peanut brittle, trying to do homeschool(boy, have we fallen off track!), Bible studies, kid’s church, housecleaning, laundry, etc., that I just can’t seem to get my mind together to sit down and write something that might be worth reading. Anyway, God is still good, and I’m excited about what He is doing in our midst. The preaching of the Word in our revival services has just been incredible, and the church is really being challenged and stirred to step up to a new level in God. There is always room to grow in God’s kingdom, and I thankful we can go to new heights and depths through the application of God’s Word and prayer!

A Watched Pot Never Boils?

Whoever said “a watched pot never boils” has never made peanut brittle!

The stuff boils and boils for a good 20 minutes before it is done, and then comes the fun part. You add a little butter, baking soda and salt to the mixture and stir like crazy. Then you rush around like a mad woman, spooning the mixture into pie tins as fast as you can so it does not burn, because it’s still cooking in that hot pot. The results – stronger arm muscles, a wonderful aroma that fills the air(providing you haven’t burned it) and something that makes a good fundraiser for the cooler autumn months. I have heard some firmly attest also that the golden streets of heaven are really going to be paved with peanut brittle. Sweet! 😆
