White, and Blue!!!!
First of all, I am praising the Lord for the most gorgeous day... from sunup til sundown, I can't remember a more spectacular day.... cool, low humidity, slight breeze.... Just the kind of day to begin and end the day on the porch!
My previous post related about our day's beginnings.... we continued our placid day in just being together and reveling in the environs that God provided!
By early afternoon Lynn and I were getting a bit hungry again and I was so thankful for the lovely sirloin I found at the market this week....to be honest at the price of beef, we hadnt actually bought any steak for some time.... IN my attempt at being frugal we had enjoyed stew beef in stews and soups only, and hamburgers, or it's yummy sauces... But I have been very prudent of the pricier cuts of beef....but this week they had prepackaged thickly sliced hunks of sirloin just right for shish-kabobs...
with the perfect amount of marbling to insure savory, juicy, tender bites!!
the spicy herbed marinade was the perfect paring with these morsels....
A show on food network reminded me that when ka-bobbing, it is best to skewer the veggies separately from the meat..cubed potatoes mixed with a bit of OO and dry onion mix roasted for about 30 minutes rounded out our holiday meal!
Just the perfect amount of char!!!A simple arrangement of holiday flair.... and my sweetheart by my side!
AW, these flavors were so wonderful.....
How very thankful we are for the opportunity to celebrate our national heritage....
at our peaceful and happy home!
We quickly put things away and hurried to the regularly scheduled Intercessors for America meeting that just happened to fall on this prestigious day. We had so much for which to give thanks, yet so much for which to repent, and to intercede for.... There was a glory about last night that was tangible.
Prayer is so important in these days of uncertainty, and we especially, are praying that God's people will lay aside their differences long enough to t become united around the One whom we all exalt!Then the long awaited revival for America may erupt, and as a nation we will see the positive changes we all so long for!
Father, God gave Lynn and I perfect front row seats at a secret location He drew us to to enjoy fireworks for the first time in several years last night...
God Bless America, and GOd Bless YOU!!
