LIttle bit of our kitchen

Hey everyone! It is cold and rainy here...finally. Everyone was complaining
about snow and we had clear skies! But no more!!!
We have been cooking quite a bit with my parents living with us...we don't
eat out too much because they aren't able to get out.  So we
have been cooking, baking, etc.
To be honest I have enjoyed all this cooking. 
 The only problem with lots of cooking...is lots of dishes! hahaha...but I put my favorite Joyce Meyer CD in ....she loves to talk about doing things unto the Lord no matter what it is....with a good attitude no less!
Ouch....she always says stuff that gets to me about my attitude....so I try to sing while I'm washing dishes...or hummmm something happy! Otherwise I find myself mumbling....big smile....
How is your attitude today?  hahahaha....just curious!
"God has shown you kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; He provides you with plenty of food and FILLS YOUR HEARTS WITH JOY!"  Acts 14:17

Very uplifting post Debbie. I think it is wonderful that you have your mom and dad so close. We never had my parents living with us but they lived in their own home sharing the same yard with us.

Here I always thought it was my less than perfect attitude Joyce was talking about in some of her teachings! Geesh glad I now know it was yours!

Oh I love Joyce Meyers. She always nails me too. I try to say thank you, but sometimes it stings a little. Love your attitude and your kitchen looks wonderful. God Bless. Hugs, Marty

Amy said what I was thinking Debbie...very uplifting! You are a wonderful daughter. I pray for you and your parents often :-) Sorry I have so much trouble leaving comments on your site. I've never figured it out.

Have a wonderful rest of your day!!

Great reminder. And in our house, we have a saying we picked up from a little plaque at a B&B years ago - "No woman ever shot a man while he was doing the dishes."
