My Texas Welcome!   3 comments

Collages64

Flew to Dallas today to spend Memorial Day weekend with our family members that live in Texas.  My twin brother picked me up from the airport and treated me and his wife (who had just driven back from a trip to Oklahoma) to a wonderful dinner.  I was able to visit with Miss Hope before she was tucked in for sweet dreaming time!  Can’t wait to spend the day with her tomorrow! Steve flies in tomorrow night to join in all the fun!

How Majestic is Thy Name   2 comments

How Majestic Is Thy Name – Psalm 8
~Keith Green~

Oh Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is thy name in all the Earth.
Oh Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is thy name in all the Earth.

Thou has displayed thy splendor above the heavens.
Thou has established strength from mouths of infants,
To show all thine enemies.

Oh Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is thy name in all the Earth.
Oh Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is thy name in all the Earth.

For when I consider the heavens the work of thy fingers.
The moon and the sun which thou hast appointed.
For what is man, that thou dost take thought of him,
And the son of man, that thou doest care for him.

Hallelujah Lord our Lord,
Oh how I love you.
Hallelujah Lord our Lord,
Oh how I love you.

You’ve made man a little lower than all of the angels,
And crowned him with glory to rule over your creation.
And under his feet,
You’ve put the beasts of the field,
The birds of the heavens and what passes through the seas,
The birds of the heavens and what passes through the sea.

Hallelujah Lord our Lord,
Oh how I love you.
Hallelujah Lord our Lord,
Oh how I love you.

Chocolate Chip Cookies   4 comments

May 10

I love the Cook’s Illustrated magazine and website! Hence the link on my sidebar.  If you have not checked this magazine out – you must.  It is a pleasure.  I so appreciate all their experimenting.  They are the CSI of Cooking Disasters!!

I made these wonderful cookies last week!  This is the Nestle Tollhouse Cookie recipe perfected!  From now on, this girl will only use the Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips when she makes chocolate chip cookies.  What a difference a good chocolate chip makes as well as all the other useful hints in this revised recipe.  Oh these were delicious!

Check this link out for the recipe and the other delicious tips this website has to offer:
