Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

A Sandwich Is the Perfect Lunch?

Hi to all of you wonderful people who keep sticking with me even though I'm having so many computer problems. I am occasionally able to read your blogs, but not often enough. Hopefully one of these days I'll be running full speed again, then I'll have some catching up to do. The main problem I'm having is the old lap top we use when our PC isn't working is so incredibly old and slow that I can't aford to take the time I would need to get on the blog often. It also most of the time just plain won't let me comment at all, either on your blogs or mine. :( But it is keeping me off the computer more, and I'm getting other things done, so that's something to be thankful for for sure. :)

Today I really don't have much time (shouldn't be on here at all), but I wanted a chance to read some of your wonderful posts. I decided to make PBJ's for lunch so I could save some time.

My 8 year old said, "This is the best lunch I've ever had!" If all it takes is two slices of whole wheat bread and a tablespoon of natural organic peanut butter with a very thin spreading of jam, why do I not save time more often? :) It was very cute, but I'm not sure what that says about my normal home cooked lunches?

I also took a minute to change my header. I need a bit of springtime inspiration for garden planning and seed purchasing. I hope to "visit" with you all soon! Happy Monday!


  1. God,please give me someone else brain,just for one day honestly,I can;t remember what the other name was,I'm sorry I know you though ,you will forgive me,plus its a very good name!

  2. Ha! All I had the energy for tonight was fried egg sandwiches and my kids said "we love this dinner"! LOL....

  3. Hi there! Dont' get all bent out of shape because you've been MIA in the blogosphere....we'll still be here when you're back. :)

    And yes, PB&J's ROCK! Think that's what we'll have today for lunch, thanks for the idea!

  4. Good to hear you're still there, Patty, even though your computer problems continue. We'll be here waiting as long as you need us to!

    Two lunches last week I had only enough soup for one serving so I gave Papa Pea the soup and I had PB & J . . . and was happy as a clam!

  5. Judy- LOL! Too funny! I'm curious, so whenever you get figured out what you wanted to say, please do. :)

    Erin- I love fried egg sandwiches! We've been eating a ton of them lately since the chickens are doing such a nice job cranking out eggs for us. My Mom's favorite egg sandwich is a scrambled egg fried like a pancake between two pieces of toast with mayo and pickles. It's actually really good. :)

    CR- Thanks for the reasurance. I hope the PBJ was "the best". :)

    Mama Pea- I have to say the PBJ was good, but I'm a big fan of soup, so I'd have had a hard time giving that up, especially if you made it. :)
