Yesterday afternoon we kicked off our 3-night revival by hosting a preachers' fellowship meeting. I spent most of the day running back and forth to the kitchen in between school lessons and trips to town. I fixed some baked goods for the preachers' afternoon coffee break and several dishes for last night's covered dish supper. Praise the Lord for my double-ovens! They were working overtime! It was cool enough outside to be using the heat, but the ovens warmed up the house just fine. I didn't take any pictures while I was cooking because I was just too busy making all of this:
* Ding-Dong cake
* sweet potato souffle
* cornbread casserole
* fruit salad
* green beans
* smokies w/barbecue sauce
* cheesy scalloped potatoes
After our supper at church we had our evening service. The preaching was fantastic, and many folks were at the altar praying during the invitation. The service seemed short to me, but that's the way it is when your heart is stirred by good preaching.
By the time we got home and the kids were all tucked in bed I was wiped out. I do not like to go to bed with a messy kitchen, but last night that's exactly what I did. This morning I woke up feeling refreshed and had a load of laundry finished and my kitchen put to rights within an hour. Everyone is enjoying Quiet Time before we get ready to head to church for tonight's service. Thankfully our supper is already taken care of; we came home last night with so many leftovers, and we've been blessed with enough fried chicken to feed us for a week!
I have lots of things to share, including a fun day trip our family took this past weekend. Hopefully life will slow down in a couple of days, and I'll be able to share then.
