We had a good service yesterday. Sunday morning we had 79 in church. My husband preached from Psalm 23. People always seem to use it at funerals, but it is really all about life. It was a great message!
Sunday evening we started our Bible Challenge. Through the month of April we will be having different competitions on Sunday evenings. Last night we split up into 2 teams and had our first competition. Tonight we played a game to see who could name the most Bible characters. Each team chose 5 people to compete. Each person was given a different letter of the alphabet and one minute to come up with as many names of people and places they could for that letter. I am pleased to say that our team won!
Below is a picture of Abby from yesterday afternoon. She found my purse and carried it around with her for about an hour. What a girl! Here she was waiting for Daddy to take her out to the car.
Abby loves to "help" in the kitchen. Here she is this afternoon helping me get lunch ready.
And this picture is for my sister. Her house burned down about 6 months ago and they have been living in cabin while the new house was being built. She was commenting about how little counter space there was in the rented place. I told her she had more than me. I don't think she believed me. So, here is a picture just for her to show her just how much counter space I have. By the way, their new home is built and she has a ton of counter space now!
While we're talking about kitchens, here is a yummy recipe we tried last week. If you like pork chops with applesauce, you'll love this!
Apple and Brown Sugar Pork Chops
2 pork chops
1 Granny Smith apple - chopped into small pieces
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
Slice chops into small, thin strips.
In skillet, add 3/4 of the stick of butter and the brown sugar. Add the pork strips and cook on Medium heat until pork is just cooked through.
Add the rest of the butter and the apples and cook until apples are slightly softened, but not limp.
I didn't add the second lot of butter and it turned out fine. We served this over savory brown rice. It made 3 generous servings.
Have a great day!
