I’m linking up with friends for Share Four Somethings January 2023 over @ Jennifer’s place, Overflowing With Thankfulness; each month, we share something we Loved, Read, Learned, and Ate.
I Love my BFFiC— Best Friend in Christ, Kim. We’ve known each other for nine years and have been Best Friends in Christ for seven.
I’m divorced, and my kids are grown. I’ve been on my own for many years now. I’ve been searching for home. Ever since that first day, she and her husband have warmly welcomed me into their family. We talk about Jesus, craft, spend holidays, and do a lot of other things together.
Most recently, my New Year started off crappy when I was in the hospital on January 2,3 &4. I ended up having to have a heart catheterization done (I’m okay, all’s fine now; I’ll tell you all more about that later). Anyhow, it’s been some time since anyone was there, present, and showed up for me— Selflessly and Unconditionally.
I love Reading everyone’s blog posts, but my heart was so profoundly touched, moved, stirred, and affected by these posts I Read this month. They include— Who We’re They by Pam Ecrement, Be Your Own Style Of Grandparent by Barbara Lee Harper, On Grandparenthood by Susan Shipe, Why it’s Important to Know the Difference Between Grief vs. Mourn by Anita Ojeda.
I also reviewed The NET TEXT Bible. It’s Made with students, young adults, and new believers in mind. It introduces the new and memorable TEXT study method—Talk to God; Encounter God and humanity in Scripture; eXamine your heart; Talk to others—to help readers of every experience level interact with God’s message. You can Read my review HERE.
I got a Cricut machine and am still Learning how to use it. So far, I’ve only Learned how to make single-colored words and pictures.
My friend Kim made Pasties (say the “a” like in the word bad) a few days ago. It’s a British baked pastry, and It’s made by placing an uncooked filling, typically meat and vegetables, on one half of a flat shortcrust pastry circle, folding the pastry in half to wrap the filling in a semicircle and crimping the curved edge to form a seal before baking. Oh my, it was Ohhh Soo good. I Ate my food all gone.
