I’ve been sick for over a week and haven’t been able to do much, but…

I can not let today go by without posting.

It is the reason why there exists hope
The reason why we can go on in the midst of trials,
grief, hard times.

He lives.

The angel said to the women,
“Do not be afraid;
for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
He is not here,
for He has risen,
just as He said.
Come, see the place where He was lying. ”
Matt. 28:5-7

 

 

I don’t know if you’ve seen this before,
but it’s one of my favorites from way back.
If you haven’t seen it,
you’re in for a treat.

A blessed Easter to you all,

Daisy

Roast Chicken

There area many ways to roast chicken.

This is one way…

IMG_1301

 

 

First, I wash and cut potatoes, carrots, and onions
and place them in a foil-lined pan.

Then I split the chicken in half, down the breast side.
This is important if you want that tasty, crispy skin.
I place it right on top of the potatoes/onions/carrots.
I season the chicken with lemon, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic & onion powder, and oregano.

Then I put it in a 350 degree oven for about one hour and 15 min.
Times vary, depending on your oven,
but the key is to leave it long enough for the skin to get extra crispy.
If you take it out too soon, you will be very disappointed.
So will your family.
So will I.

The onions and potatoes will get a wonderful toasty exterior
that you won’t want to miss.

Yes, sir!
The juices in the pan are fantastic poured over rice.

The wings are delicious because they’ll be crunchy and delicious.

This is a simple meal that I make when I’m doing something
and can’t be standing over the stove for a length of time.

You just put it in the oven
and forget about it until the timer goes off.

As you can see, I like to serve it with black beans and rice.

Give it a try.
You’ll be glad you did.
So will your family.
So will I.

Happy cooking,

Daisy

My husband & I recently celebrated out 30th wedding anniversary!!

…to celebrate, we planned a very special trip,
however, things don’t always go as planned,
and I found myself in the ER just two days before
we were scheduled to leave on our trip.

I am so thankful that it was nothing serious and I am recovering.
If you’ve ever been in the ER,
especially if you have a lot of pain,
all kinds of thoughts want to rush in
and fill your mind with visions of what could happen…
It’s not easy to keep those thoughts from taking over.

I thank God that I felt his peace,
His comfort,
and his strength.
…and that I was happily released about 5 hours later!!

We didn’t exactly get to go on the trip we wanted,
but we did go to a nice place and get some fresh air
up in the Blue Ridge Mountains…

We went on a hike and I’d like to show you
some of the things we saw…

It was hard to walk past the pretty flowers
without stopping to take 5-105 photographs…
My husband is a very patient man.

Now we’re ready for another 30 years of wedded bliss!!

I am blessed beyond measure!
My husband is my best friend,
he is an amazing person in many ways,

…and we’re still very much in love!

Looking forward to all God has for us!

…God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth;  but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I John 1: 5-9

Do you ever feel like you just need some quiet time?

unnamed

(Photo taken inside  an 1800s church)
There were no microphones here, no Powerpoint, … not even electricity.

Yet,
the people gathered here and worshipped God.
All they had was each other and the Bible.
They read.  They prayed together.  They encouraged one another.
Made me realize once again…
we don’t need all the “bells and whistles” we feel so necessary today.

I guess all we need is a hunger for God.

 

Just thinking…

Have a blessed weekend everybody.
Love to you all,
Daisy
