BFS #106 -- Have It Your Way!

Memory Verse: Isaiah 40: 1- Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

Intro: “Have It Your Way” (Burger King) - As cooler weather approaches and the winter eases into our doors I like to lounge by the fire after a hot shower. I love to make soups that are brimming with a rich and full flavor. In our home there’s nothing better than a hot bowl of soup or and a hot cup of coffee or cocoa on a cold winter night.

Assignment: Tell us all about how your have “your” relaxing time, more especially how during the cooler months you take time to curl up with your favorite movie, book, Bible study, and what your favorite warm drink would be.

Hmmm...cooler weather. Now that's something that doesn't really happen down here in Georgia. Now, granted, it does cool off. But -- if you're looking for a fire, well, you might as well look elsewhere. We've been in our house for almost 4 years, and we yet to light a fire. Now some people around here do, but when you're as hot-natured as we are, then it doesn't happen.

Now, with that all said, I do enjoy the cooler months. The summer here is just atrocious, so when Fall/Winter roll around, I'm really ready for it. My favorite thing to do around this time of year is open up the windows and enjoy the fresh, cool air. I also like to snuggle up on the couch with a blanket and just enjoy my family.

As for my drink of choice, I really enjoy a nice cup of coffee. When I can, I love to get a White Chocolate Mocha from the local Starbucks. But -- if that's not a possibility, then I'll just make a pot of coffee, and I'll enjoy it just as well with my Coffeemate or International Delight flavor of choice. I wish I didn't enjoy coffee as much, but I truly do. I don't think I really enjoy it for the benefits either...I just like the taste.

Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path."

Coffee??? ooohhh! We will have to get together sometime and have coffee together! I LOVE coffee! LOL

Hey, did you get my email with the links to plastic canvas patterns? I hope so - I made the Sesame Street coasters only instead of using them for coasters I made them into a cube. I will have to show it to you - I think it would make a cute toy for a little one. :)

Yes, the weather has been absolutely beautiful! I love having my windows open, too. It makes my house feel so much 'fresher'. LOL

Oh that is a good flavor from Starbucks. I enjoy that one too. When I hear one speak of Georgia-my mind instantly goes to a story that happened to my husband. He was pre-screening an potential student (for getting a guide dog) and here he is, sitting in this cabin of a house, deep in Georgia, in the middle of the blazing summer, and there was this very, very old woman sitting in her rocker, wrapped in a shawl, sitting next to a stoked wood burning stove! My hubs told us that he was dripping sweat like Niagra Falls, and he could barely think straight it was so hot in there! We still laugh about that one...oh and of course, Georgia reminds us of the Dukes of Hazzard too...but that is another story!
Have a great week!
