Banana Bread and Witnessing!

      I was reading this morning on a blog of one of our Missionaries.  She shared a story of how she has made banana bread and used it to open the door to talk to people about Jesus and coming to their church.  This post really blessed me and challenged me both.  You can read her whole post at
      As I was reading her post, I was thinking of who I could maybe do this for.  Not just for witnessing to them but to maybe encourage them, let them know someone cared, missed them, thought of them etc.
     Don't like banana bread, don't bake it, so make a cake, cookies, muffins, it doesn't matter what you take, just that you let them know someone cares.

      Someone cares, but do they know?  I am off to bake and make my list.  I challenge you to do the same, who can you invite to church, encourage, let them know they are missed, let them know someone cares?
 Recipe for Easy Banana Bread 

  • 3 large bananas , well mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of sugar

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you!

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,

Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.

Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
