Revelation 14:13 Bible Study

This is a picture that I took in the Faroe Islands.  It's so beautiful and peaceful.  It looks like a painting.  I thought it was fitting for today.

I haven't posted for a while, because while we were gone my father was diagnosed with lung cancer and has several strokes.  I was fortunate enough to get to be with him twice before he passed away, and David and the kids were all there also.  We thought that he had several weeks to a few months. 

 Unfortunately, last week he made his final journey home to our Father in heaven.  Now he can rest.

Have a blessed week.

Month of June - Update

Selfie in Faroe Islands

Hi Everyone,
I have received so many emails over the last month and just wanted to give everyone an update.

We are all fine.  Our son Danny got married in June, and that was so fun, but it was totally crazy getting everything ready for company and the rehearsal dinner.  Then after that we left for vacation.  We were on a cruise out of England and saw so many beautiful cities in the North Atlantic.   

Blue Lagoon in Iceland

Seven Sisters Waterfalls in Gieranger, Iceland

I can't wait to start sharing all that we have done and seen.  I have shopped for wool in The Faroe Islands,  Shetland Islands,  and Norway.  I have shopped in general, because I love shopping.  My wonderful husband is so sweet, he goes along for the shopping, as long as we get sightseeing also.

I should be posting again on a regular basis next week and should have a party up and going next Tuesday. 

That being said, my Dad is sick and in the hospital, so there is a chance that it could be a little longer, before things are totally back to normal. 

I hope you like the pictures, I can't wait to share more with you.  These are just the ones from my phone.

Have a great week.

Grandpa's Lemonade for Friday's Happy Hour

This week I am sharing Grandpa's Lemonade for Friday's Happy Hour.  This is a recipe that my dad came up with when he was on dialysis, and the kids all love it.  When they ask for it they ask for Grandpa's Lemonade and the name stuck.  He has been gone for 7 years now, but the name is still here.  I wanted to share this recipe with all of you, since it is simple to make and relatively low calorie.

Grandpa's Lemonade


1 can frozen lemonade (follow the directions on the can to make the lemonade)
5 oz. club soda


Make the frozen lemonade, following the directions on the can.  It will make much more then you need for one serving, but I bet it will go fast in your house.  I don't think it will go to waste.

Next put ice in a tall glass and pour 5 ounces of lemonade in the glass.

Then pour the club soda over the lemonade.

Stir and serve.

This is such a refreshing summer drink and our family goes through it quickly.  Even the big kids drink it.  Have fun and enjoy your summer with Grandpa's Lemonade.  We always love hearing from you.

Have a great week.

Sauteed Mixed Greens with Kale

Today I am sharing a recipe that I came up with for Sauteed Mixed Greens with Kale.  I recently had kale for the first time at a restaurant in downtown Denver.  I ordered scallops and they came on a bed of lightly sauteed kale, and they were delicious.  I then went to my trusty Trader Joe's to buy kale and try to make Kale with a similar lemony taste.  It came out great, but the next time I went to the store I found a mix of baby kale, swiss chard, and baby spinach.  This is the second incarnation of the dish that I originally made.  We all liked this recipe also, so today we are having sauteed mixed greens with kale.

Sauteed Mixed Greens with Kale


4 to 6 cups mixed greens with kale (mine had a baby kale, swiss chard, and baby spinach, but you could make it with just kale)
2 TB olive oil
2 tsp garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 lemon (squeezed over the greens at the end of cooking)


Heat olive oil in a large saute pan and add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes over medium heat.

Add mix greens and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until greens start to soften and wilt.

Continue cooking and season with salt and pepper to taste. This takes about another minute

Next, holding the cut side of the lemon against your palm, squeeze the lemon juice over the mixed greens.

Stir, and cook for another minute to incorporate the flavors. 

You're done. 

This serves approximately 4 people depending on the amount of greens that you use and how much you cook them down.

I hope that you like this recipe.  It is super healthy and delicious.  I always love hearing from you.  

What is your favorite recipe with kale?

Have a great week.
