Beginning of the week…

Beginning of the week…

A great way to start the week is to gather with brothers and sisters in Christ.  That’s what Sunday is for me.
A good jump start to the week ahead.

This morning my daughter and I started our week with our new church family, First Baptist of Branch, AR.  

I think it’s going to be a good week.

How do you start your week?

My daughter turns 17 this week.   She will be in band practice, from 4-8 pm on her birthday and I will be at work until 6 pm.  So we all decide to celebrate her birthday early.  She didn’t want a cake, but she wanted a banana pudding.

David made her a banana pudding using pound cake in place of the vanilla wafers.  It was yummy!

1 bunch of bananas – peeled and sliced in rounds
1 pound cake – sliced in thin layers
2 small boxes of regular banana pudding – following the recipe on the box
Layer pound cake, bananas, and pudding to the top of your container.   Chill in refrigerator for several hours to overnight.
After lunch we had the banana pudding then I went and laid down for a banana pudding induced nap.  
I woke up from my nap about an hour later.  I heard a rumbling sound, like a motorcycle starting, but it was muffled by the windows.  Then I heard a loud rumble overhead and I knew the sound I heard was not made by mortal man, but by the Master of the winds clapping His hands.
Sure enough, not too long after the rain came.  What a glorious blessing from above.  

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. ~Joel 2:23
God bless and keep you,
