Best ___________ Ever!

I "borrowed" this post from another blog. Thought it would be fun to hear your best (fill-in-the-blank) ever. It can be anything. Here's mine. Let me know what yours is.

Best Brownie Ever - Ghirardelli's Ultimate Fudge Brownie (You can buy the mix at the grocery store.) It is unbelievable. It will change your life!!! :)

Your Divine Valentine

A valentine may play a love song for you, but God sings the sweetest love song over you: "The Lord Your God.....will rejoice over you with singing." (Zephaniah 3:17)
A valentine might give you flowers, but God sent you the most beautiful rose of all: Jesus! "I am the Rose of Sharon....." (Song of Solomon 2:1)
A valentine might bring you chocolate, but God provides something even sweeter - His word! "How sweet are your words to my taste...." (Psalm 119:103)
A valentine might love you for a lifetime, but God loved you even before you were born. "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love...." (Jeremiah 31:3)
Praying you are blessed by the wonderful love of God this Valentine's Day and always!

I want to wish all my friends a Happy Valentine's Day! Instead of following our heart (which can be wishy-washy :), I pray that we will lead our heart this year. Blessings to all of you!!

Also, I just realized that I have never posted a picture of my granddaughter on the blog, so here's one that was taken a while back. I will try to get a more recent one to post in the near future.

A Memory Challenge

I've taken a challenge from a fellow blog to memorize 2 scripture verses a month. So far, here are my verses.

January 1 - "Buy truth and do not sell it. Get wisdom and teaching and understanding." Proverbs 23:23

January 15 - "Let the high praises of God be in my mouth, and a 2-edged sword (the Word of God) be in my hand." (Psalm 149:6)

February 1 - "May my tongue sing of Your word, for all Your commands are righteous." (Psalm 119:172)

I keep gravitating to the book of Psalms. There's just something poetic about it. David, who wrote a lot of the Psalms, was such a man after God's own heart and he had such a close relationship with the Lord, that is why I think the Psalms are my favorite.

What about you? What is your favorite book of the Bible?

Who's Going to Win?

So, who do you pick to win the Superbowl? My favorite teams are already out of it - St. Louis Rams, and Minnesota Vikings. But, if I have to pick a team to win, I guess I will pick "The Pack."

Our family loves football. My husband played football in college and we like to follow the sport. The family (his parents, and a few of our extended family) get together to watch football on Sunday afternoons at Mark's parent's house. It's fun to cheer on our favorite team, kid one another about their favorite team, and to pig-out on rotelle dip and chips, pizza, and all our favorite "snack" foods!

Are you going to a Superbowl Party? How do you usually celebrate?

Let it Snow, Let it Snow.....

....Let it Snow! We are supposed to get a foot of snow or more - yippee~

I love this kind of weather because I can just curl up with a book and sit by the fire and read.

We've had a lot of snow this year. The last time I remember it snowing this much was when I was in Junior High. We got so much snow that year that we had to go to school on Saturdays to get all the make-up days in. Yikes! I remember a lot of the kids didn't show up, but my Mom made me go - it was kind of fun!

What was the most fun you had on a "snow day?"
Got any good book ideas I can download onto my Kindle?

Have a great week!!
