Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - July 8, 2024

It's Monday afternoon and, as usual, the day is slipping away from me. For those in the United States of America, I hope that you and yours had a lovely Independence Day as, together, we celebrated our nation's 248th birthday.

My Red Geranium

Half of my children, their families, friends, and I attended Faith, Family, and Fireworks in Lamar on the evening of the third. We had a great time enjoying free hot dogs and chips, playing bingo, seeing old cars, taking riding wagons, getting our faces painted, and watching the fireworks.

On the 4th, I went over to Patrick and Amber's to enjoy the holiday with family and friends. There was plenty of good food, fellowship, fun, and fireworks. All-in-all Independence Day 2024 turned out to be a great holiday! 💖🤍💙

Just got done watching today's podcast on THM's Youtube channel and it is sooo good and fear not! It has nothing to do with food, diet, or weightloss. Deconstructing Ourselves and Finding Our Value in God with Lisa Bevere: Part 2 has everything to do with overcoming anger, fear, unbelief, and other obstacles that keep you from experiencing God's unique love for you.

When you get a chance, please, take a few minutes (okay...a little over an hour) and listen. It's so worth it!

Until next time...

    1. I did have a wonderful Independencd Day for sure, Mrs. White, and hope you and your family did, as well. That particular photo is not one of mine, but the gal that took it gave me permission to share it, and, you're right! It is absolutely stunning! That is the church where the event took place with the night's grand finally exploding in the distance behind the steeple. Absolutely lovely!
