Hymn of Promise

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; in cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter there's a spring that waits to be, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There's a song in every silence, seeking word and melody; there's a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me. From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity; in our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity. In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. ~~ words & music by Natalie Sleeth, 1986 United Methodist Hymnal

Cabbage Salad!


The wonderful Gollum at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com is our host today for this wonderful event! And this time I have no trouble fitting in because it's all about kitchen disasters or goofs or something gone wrong in the cooking department! You know they say "misery loves company!" so when you get thru here go over to Gollum's and check out other kitchen blunders!
My story starts long ago in a galaxy far, far away!...before my DH and I were married! We weren't yet engaged but had been dating 4 years! 'Course half that time he had a job in Atlanta and I was still in college in Memphis...and just let me add a little plug here during March madness...GO TIGERS! Anyway, my boyfriend (that's the DH) was a groomsman in his ex-girlfriend's brother's wedding! A little matchmaking going on to my way of thinking at the time! But I played it cool! While he was at the wedding I decided to make him a romantic dinner for two! I've forgotten now what the menu was, but I had shopped and was going to make him a lovely fresh green salad! Now, I have to explain here that I love bunnies but I don't eat like one! For some weird reason unbeknownst to man I don't like salad! I'd probably be alot thinner if I did! In the middle of my preparations my man came back to his apartment to find me in the kitchen making the salad for our dinner and started laughing hysterically! Now you have to understand I had been on pins and needles all day wondering what exactly was going on at that wedding! I had just reached in and pulled out the lettuce to make the salad. He said, Honey are you using that to make the salad? Yes, I replied, of course, it's lettuce.............ummmm, Honey, that's a cabbage! Cole Slaw anyone?! God Bless! Lauralu :)

  12. What a precious story. Now the fact that he just smiled is a good sign, and he was patient. I love the fact that you two are married and can laugh about it. Hugs, Marty
