MyTunes| You Are My Joy

Welcome back to MyTunes!

On Friday, when the Supreme Court made a very evil, and unconstitutional decision, I was disheartened. In an effort to take my mind off of the tragedy for a short while, I decided to listen to a song. It’s an old song called “You Are My Joy” by the Kenoly Brothers.

I’ll admit I shed a few tears, being that my emotions were running high. :roll: Regardless, I think it’s a very beautiful song and that it was sung wonderfully. Remember that the Lord is our joy and our strength. He’s our everything, and He’s in control no matter what man does.

You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.
(Isaiah 26:3-4 ESV)

To My Dad With Love

Dear Dad, 

On this Father’s Day in 2015, I want to tell you again how much I love and appreciate you. I look up to you more than you know. 

FD15

The way you care for the well-being, safety and happiness of your family is a blessing. Your determination to provide is remarkable. 

I love that you are a man of your word, and to the best of your human ability, when you say you are going to do something, for goodness sake’s you’re going to do it! And I love that about my father. 

FD15 3

You’re a manly man and we can always count on you to keep us safe. Whether it be a strange noise outside or a spider, you’re always there to protect us. ;-)

You train and disciple us in the Word of the Lord, as you are commanded in Scripture. Your love for God is genuine and it saturates your everyday living as it should. I’m grateful for a godly father like no other. 

FD15 2

I love you and I always will love you. Happy Father’s Day Pa. <3

From your eldest

With Love

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
(Ephesians 6:4 ESV)

What’s Cooking? | Last Week of May

My sister and I were assigned to cook dinner the last week of May and I have two of the meals from that week to share with you.  

First up is Tuesday’s dinner:

Shepherd’s Pie (technically Cottage Pie because I did not make this with lamb meat :-) )

Shepherd's/Cottage Pie

So these pictures show you the process of putting it all together in a pan to bake. (I didn’t think to take pics until this point.) I wanted to make enough for two dinners so I used 2lbs of ground beef. I eyeballed the mixed veggies, and used 6 potatoes to make the mashed taters. After the ground beef, mixed vegetables, and mashed potatoes were prepared, I combined the meat and veggies together. Then I topped them with mashed potatoes and shredded cheddar cheese. I’ve made this before and I wanted to add cheese to the meat and vegetable mixture because just cheese on the top isn’t enough for my family. But I forgot to do it this time so I’ll try to remember next time. ;-) I put them in the oven at 350° to bake for 20-25 minutes. It came out great!

 Next up is Wednesday’s Dinner: Chicken Fajita Pasta (This was a pinterest recipe!)

Chicken Fajita Pasta

I enjoyed making this and the delicious aroma it sent around the house. I will definitely make this again! You can view the recipe here

I am glad I accomplished this post. I’ve been slacking once again, but with God’s help I can improve. Have a blessed evening and thank you for reading! :-)
