Family Times…

Here I am with my cousin, Stephanie. Do we look alike? (We don’t think so.[smile] )

Stephanie and I went out for coffee yesterday afternoon and had a good talk about witnessing ideas. Here’s a good idea she shared with me that I thought I’d pass on to you:

When you are at a restaurant, tell your waitress, “Hey–we are just about to pray for our meal. Is there anything we could pray about for you?”

It’s often difficult to get into a good conversation with waiters or waitresses so I am excited about trying out this idea.


When you are the youngest ones in the family, no matter how old you get, you never outgrow the “kid’s table” at family gatherings. [smile]

This afternoon, when my family arrived home from church we were all really hungry. Funny how that happens when you don’t have much food around. It’s been a busy weekend and unfortunately we didn’t have anything planned for Easter dinner.
Dad wanted oatmeal, so Sarah started to make baked oatmeal but then she found out that we didn’t have enough oatmeal so she substituted rye flakes. [smile] (My mom often mentions how she appreciates that Dad is so easy to please when it comes to food…)

However, we decided that oatmeal just wasn’t enough 🙂 so we tried to find something else. We remembered that we had a couple steaks in the freezer. After thawing them, we had a little family discussion about whether we should grill outside (in 30 degree weather) or broil them in the oven. We decided to broil them. Unfortunately, they started on fire in the oven and set off our fire alarm, etc. It’s a good thing our family likes steaks well done.

It turned out that we had a very nice (Easter) Resurrection Day dinner and a relaxing Sunday.


  1. Aw, sounds like you had a wonderful time Grace! We didn’t have a super fancy meal for the day either, but family times made it wonderful anyway. 🙂 Lol, I still love the kiddie table too – so much fun!

  2. We had a great Easter too… my family and I actually camped out at our property and had a sunrise service surrounded by God’s beauty.
    What a blessing that the Lord is risen, just as He said He would!

    Glad you all had a great Easter!

  3. Grace,
    I will be 38 next month and I still end up with my nephews at the “kids” table. 🙂 I hope you all had a good time!

  4. Grace, I just found your blog and it is a blessing to read. You seem like a very special lady and I appreciate your dedication to the Lord.

    God bless you!
