Summer is HERE!

Well, summer is definately here (as affirmed by the 102 degree tempurature reading on my thermometer) and you know what that means… backyard bar-b-que season has officially begun! Wooo-hooo! =)

To celebrate the occassion, we had an awesome family bar-b-que at my mother’s house this past weekend. We sat in our lawn chairs all afternoon under the shade of her huge tree in the backyard.

 We talked, laughed and lounged the afternoon away.

Then, as the sun lowered, it came time to light the grill! My brother manned the grill in the backyard, while the rest of us enjoyed playing a game of “DUTCH BLITZ” inside (my new favorite card game 🙂 ) and preped the rest of the meal.

Finally, the happy moment came when my brother brought in the plate billowing over with tri-tip and chicken…. the smell was overwhelmingly delightful (great marinade, Mom)! So we spent the remainder of the evening at the kitchen table filling our little bellies (which weren’t so little by the time we were done 😉 ) and carrying on in conversation. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, my mother topped-off the evening with her infamous Capaccino Chocolate Brownies. It was GREAT! =)

About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.
