Freezer Meal: Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burritos

Here a great freezer meal for you meal planners!  I love a great breakfast especially breakfast burritos!  The prep time is not too bad and they are really good!  We have made they a couple of times and we keep tweaking the recipe each time.  We added a little taco seasoning and diced jalapenos to the last batch…and they are now part of the recipe for us!  Enjoy!

Our Home

Wow! What a year! We have been living life to its fullest and making some large decisions! It is time to sell our house! This is not been a easy decision, mainly because we love our home and have worked hard to make it…a home. It is just not meeting our needs and so, we trust God has planned on blessing someone with this incredible house.

What I Learned In 2012

2012 has been an incredible year for our family!  God has blessed us and we pray He has done the same for you and yours!  One thing I learned this year…Don’t be afraid!  Most of you know I like to control things in my life.  A couple of months back, I felt the Lord was really speaking to me about just letting go!  I have!  My life is the Lord’s IMG_6558-001and I will do my best to serve Him in every way I can.  Once I started letting go, the flood gates opened with new opportunities to serve Him…not to mention my dear Alli Grace being saved!

I am grateful to all the people in my family’s life who serve, ministry with and to us!  I pray we continue our journey together and expand His Kingdom more than ever!

2013 is going to be crazy…crazy for Christ Jesus!  Are you holding back?  Scared you will get over-extended…just let go!  He will give you the energy and strength to do His Will!

 

Oct 2012 Family Update

Wow!  It has been too long!  Not that anyone cares…but I miss writing and sharing!  Well, our family adventures have continued over the last 2 years with nothing less than your typically family fun!

We had a great time this week with Halloween Bash at The Edge ministry with over 800 kids!  I volunteered to man the grill this year and we had a ball grilling around 50 lbs of hot dogs for all the spooks!  Thursday night we went over to Prescott South for the AR Tailgate and had a great time with all the kidos!

We hit the beach this fall break in Fort Walton!  Well over due family vacation!  Here are just a few of our gifts from the sea!  We had so much fun just walking the beaches and spending time together.

Chase is now 13 yrs old and in 8th grade…wow where has the time gone!  He is a FCA officer and is active in ELEV8 (middle school ministry).  We are so proud of the young man he has became.  He began taking guitar lessons this year and has really done great with it.  He has played a couple of times for our family devo and we loved it.

Alli is now 8 yrs old and in 2nd grade and loving it!  She has made some great friends and many of them live in our neighborhood!  Alli likes to read and is a good little reader.

Leslie is in her 3rd year at Prescott South Elementary as a Kindergarten Teacher.  She loves this school and is working her tail off this year!  Since PSES got the Stem grant she has been working really hard.  She has a great team of ladies she is working with!

Leslie and I decided this year to help with our college ministry group (PoGro) on Sunday nights.  We wanted to find a place we could serve together and this working out great!  We adopted a college student last year, Ms. Sarah Nix, and really enjoy getting to spend time with her and getting to know her.

As for me, well, life is crazy.  A few weeks back I felt like I was being overwhelmed by opportunities to serve God.  It sounds weird, but I was a little freaked out by everything I could be involved in.  Most of you know, if I am going to do something, I am going to do something to the best of my abilities.  The thought of serving God half way, not appealing to me.  As I begin to pray about each opportunity I felt even more lead to do each one.  God finally got my attention one night at PoGro while we were worshiping Him….the words Do Not Be Afraid hit me like a mac truck.  I was so worried about limiting myself to a few areas and God was pushing me to see, I can do them all and all to the best of my abilities.  Huh, this was never an option in my mind…it seemed like too much for me…but not when you add God in the mix.

So, it is On Like Donkey Kong!  All the opportunities are now being per sued.  You will begin to hear about them here as things happen.  I am excited about what My God can do….with me and my family!

And one last note…Chase, Michelle (Tim’s wife) and I entered The Grove 1st Annual Chili Cook-Off and WON!  We had a ball cooking together!  Maybe we will post our recipe…LOL!

 

Google Reader Backlash: A Fuss Over Nothing? – Rebecca J. Rosen – Technology – The Atlantic

Many of you know (and share) my love for Google Reader.  With the recent update Google choose to kill off the sharing between friend!  This is a huge disappointment for me.  I have really enjoyed reading and sharing articles with all of you!

After some research, I found this article which explains how the new sharing works.

Google Reader Backlash: A Fuss Over Nothing? – Rebecca J. Rosen – Technology – The Atlantic.

The basis of this is article is about how you share, but what I have found is technically you can still pull off seeing what everyone else is sharing within Google Reader.  All items which are “Shared” are now available via RSS from your friend’s Google+ stream…  Not a perfect fix, but you can still keep everything inside of Google Reader.

A suggestion for Google would be add a RSS feed from the Google Profile +1’s page which keep my friends from seeing all my pics and other junk I am posting to Google+ and allows them to see items I deem important by using +1 option…which is now everywhere!
