The 23rd Psalm

(Photo edited with iPiccy)
Psalm 23

A Psalm of David. 
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Thank You!

Staying Cool With Crock-Pot Meals

My Crock-Pot 
has been my go-to appliance this Summer.
Because I've been able to cook delicious meals without heating up the entire kitchen.
 I have no idea why I hadn't thought of doing this before.
Just goes to prove
"You're never to old to learn" 

 (Links are with Each Recipe)

Crock-Pot Chicken with Black Beans & Cream Cheese
 I've fixed this one more than once, 
and I always shred the chicken.
It tastes great served over rice, or stuffed in tortillas.
Very Flexible & Easy!
(for extra flavor I use a spicy salsa) 

 Chicken Thighs With Carrots & Potatoes
 This recipe is VERY simple.
I love that the vegetables stay nice and crisp.
(Comfort Food)

Slow Cooker Enchiladas  
 This recipe is more labor intensive, 
but it only has to cook in the crock-pot for one hour.
(great for pot luck dinners)

 Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan
 This recipe is easy and delicious!
If you don't over cook it, it really does 
come out looking just this good!

Do you have a favorite Crock-Pot/Slow Cooker Recipe?

ALL of these recipes and more of my Favorites
are on my
if you'd like to take a look.
Happy Cooking
Stay Cool!

Fabric Flower - Tutorial

I haven't been all that craft lately,
but I did make this 
Fabric Flower

out of white cotton muslin.

I followed a tutorial I found on Pinterest

and tweaked it just a little.

Now it's on a Gimme Cap

I'd imagine you've made dozens of these,
but this was my first try.

It Was FuN!

Be Encouraged - Joshua 1:9

(photo edited with iPiccy)
When I'm afraid, 
 I meditate on Your Word. 
Calm my Spirit,
Sharpen my Perception,
Purify my Heart
Clarify my Direction

 Thank You!

Chalkboard - A Summer Day Project

Do you like Chalkboards?

I sure do!
That's why I was pretty excited when I got the idea for this one.
(Actually, when this idea came to me, I just smiled and said Thank You)
He always knows what gives me Joy!

Wondering what's it made out of ? 
We had gotten a (free) coffee table several months ago and even though we liked it, 
we both decided it was just to big for our small space.

Buzz removed the top, then I did my part.

We Love The Way It Looks!

and are thinking of all the fun ways we can use it
(especially during the holidays)
  If it were yours, 
what would you write on it? 

Time to Party
(Hope you'll come along)
