New year

Today starts a new year... 

And what better way to start the year, than with the Lord 

She reads truth Genesis

Starting in Genesis, come study with me and many other across the world as we draw closer to Christ in out daily reading of God's word...

My biblical goal for the year is to daily read God's word, and ask him to fill me up to overflowing.

To become more like him...

Grab your bible, or go directly to the link above to draw closer to the Lord with me this year through daily spending time with the amazing creator of the universe.

Chong's Korean

We have been enjoying some of the local shops
in the area during construction on the to help
support them since most people don't wan to brave the construction zone to visit the local shops.

Chong's Korean Barbecue is amazing, 
and run by an amazing woman that does everything
by her self.  She greats you, takes you order, cooks and 
serves you with a smile....

This is the Korean version of sushi.... It is 
completely delicious and has no raw meat 
for the squeamish...


This is my Hubby's favorite, the Korean barbecue
with white rice and a delicious salad of spinach greens
tossed with a soy sauce based dressing..... Yum!!!

"Taegi Gogi"

This is what I tried this time, since I had heard
so many people order this over the phone while
we have sat there waiting for our food to arrive...
It was really good...but everything we have 
ordered we have liked.
This had cooked ingredients and some 
raw vegies in this, on a bed of rice...
She instructed me to toss it together before
I ate it.  There is also a Fried egg over easy 
on top that added a pretty neat taste to the dish.

"Bibimbap with Pork"

This is my hubby threatening to eat the food
before I can take a picture of it....
Quite the funny guy.  He was pretty hungry though
so I don't blame him of wanting to 
dig right in and eat... 
Actually, when the food came I had this dish with
chicken, and it had such a great wafting scent coming
my way that I forgot to take a picture of my food
and started eating it right away, and completely forgot to
take a picture of my plate...  

Oh Goodness.... 
Now I am craving this food!!
And I can't justify going there all by my self

Being Creative??

Rainy summer day here.....

love spending time with my bible and a good cup of 
coffee on the front porch in the morning
when it is not too rainy....

Yesterday I spent some time painting with water colors
kind of fun....

Wanting to be more creative..... Summer time is
for having fun, and doing things, and experiencing things
new and adventurous...

I'm in the mood to be creative in Gods Creation.

Give praise to the Lord who creates beauty
all around you....

What are you doing this summer to be creative 
and enjoy the beauty of summer?

I am thinking of working on a Bible art Journal....

I'll post pictures if I actually get some pages done, 
there are so many examples on pinterest and Instagram, 
it really inspires me to dig into Gods word, and
be creative in the process....

Hope you have a Blessed, and creative weekend.

Summer Bible Studies

I am loving my bible studies this summer.....

I am doing two, and both of them meet different needs that 
I have in a bible study.

The first (Psalm 119) has a printable study that you 
work on and use the SOAK method, which gets you
studying and thinking about what it means in your
life, and how God is speaking to you through it.
I usually start off in the morning, reading the required verses, 
write out the the study verse, and think about it all day...
At the end of the day, I journal, and finish the application 
part of the study and re-ponder the verses of the day....

The second study I am thoroughly enjoying is from  It is a study Called
 Women in the Word.

I starts with Eve, and goes through the bible 
old and new testaments.
They have interactive posting, so you can share your
heart with all the other precious women that are doing the
study with you.
The daily bible reading and devotionals are so heart felt
and have been such a blessing to my life...

You can jump in and start on the current day, or go back
and start at the beginning with Eve...  
All content is online.  A new devotional each day, and corresponding bible passages.... 

I just love taking my bible study and my cup of Coffee
out on the porch in the morning and listening to the birds
chirping, and the leaves blowing in the breeze while I read
and study Gods word....  It sets my day off to a perfect and
refreshing beginning.....

Here are links to both studies...

I hope you will take a look and dig into the 
Word Of God this summer....


Thanks so much for stopping by....

Have a Blessed Day...

Preserving Sourdough

I have been doing a lot of research on Sourdough lately,
And I found that you can dry and rehydrate the dried Starter.

I'm going to give it a try and see if it works....

And then I can send some to my Darling  Niece in California.

It takes a few days to dry, then you just store dry starter sample in a 
Baggie or sealed container until needed.

It seems that you just need to make sure your Sourdough is healthy and
Bubbly for several days with feedings before doing the process
Of drying starter for long term storage.

It's a good idea to do it when you have a vibrant starter, to have a backup 
Incase you kill your current Sourdough Starter.

Well, off to feed my starter for the day, and check on my two bowls of rising
Sourdough Bread.  One of which I had to place in the refrigerator over night because
Of time issues.  Can't wait yo see how that loaf turns out.

The other is the crockpot bread I blogged about yesterday.
The first loaf is almost gone, and I need to get another baked for our
Dining pleasure...
