Cheryl....YEAH!! You joined us!! I am so happy. This recipe looks to yummy. Thanks for sharing it with everyone. I am embarassed to say that I haven't been visiting my blog friends, lately. I LOVE the new look of your blog. I don't know when you changed it up. I haven't done Thankful Thursday or Sings my soul Saturday in a few weeks. So, I have missed everyone. My hubby is in a new town, working at his new job (thank you Lord). So we have been in limbo on the weekends, either traveling to see him, or hurricane IKE. We had to electricity or water for 2 days. We are not THAT close to the coast. It was just that IKE took a course that brought him right over us on Saturday afternoon, and he was still a CAT 1 at that time. Who knew. You think you live 3 hours a way from Galveston and still loose electricity and water. We are thankful that we are safe and no trees in our house.
Okay, enough about me. Love the new blog look and glad you came by to tempt our tummies!

This sounds great!
I have been out of blog world for several weeks due to computer problems from home. I am working at school for right now...They offered me insurance then took the offer away. I am looking for a job with benefits.
I know God has a plan...I just need HIM to send me clear directions on which way to go. I know in HIS Time!
Andrea is doing great in college. I miss her so much. She has not plugged into a church or bible study and Joey and I both are concerened about this. Pray for her. Joey is still traveling and is out of town most of the weeks. Pray for him and safety.
I really have missed everyone and I am trying to catch up on the blogs. This will take me some time. There is so much to read. I don't want to miss anything.
Thanks for all the prayers and encouragement. They always came just when I feel like giving up.
Sweet Blessings,
