Sunday Randomness…

After our morning worship, my family loaded up in the big white van and headed down the highway for a Sunday afternoon drive. It was tons of fun and a blessing to rest a little after a long week of work! I saw persimmons for the first time ever and we tried out a local coffee shop. The barista (or would it be a “barister” since the coffee maker was male?!? ;) made a pretty delicious pumpkin spice latte! (:

So here is a little Sunday randomness via my cellphone camera. :)

Couldn’t help getting a quick picture with one of my favorite cowboys. =)

“But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”
Acts 20:24

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Persimmons are truly delicious when they are ripe, but astringent if they are not.
    Did you know there is an old folks tale about the seed of a persimmon…I just looked it up in the Old Farmer’s Almanac just to be sure…
    “According to folklore, you can predict the weather with a persimmon seed. Here’s how to do it:
    Cut open a persimmon seed. (Find persimmon fruit in your supermarket. It should be locally-grown to reflect your weather.)
    Look at the shape of the kernel inside.

    If the kernel is spoon-shaped, lots of heavy, wet snow will fall. Spoon = shovel!
    If it is fork-shaped, you can expect powdery, light snow and a mild winter.
    If the kernel is knife-shaped, expect to be “cut” by icy, cutting winds.”

    I don’t know if this is true or not, but when we moved out to the country the old folks used to insist that this was true.

Leave a comment and make my day! ;)
