Saturday Night

This was a great Saturday at our house, and an even better Saturday night. We managed to get some house and yard work done. The living room looked great and I made a small dent in the laundry. Dad and the boys mowed the lawn, and DD and I bought groceries. Lots of things were checked off the list. For supper, we had the family Saturday night favorite: hot dogs, hamburgers, homemade macaroni and cheese and homemade baked beans. I love the beans and macaroni together. Dad grilled the burgers and hotdogs on the grill; he always loves doing that. We then settled in and watched a great episode of Wagon Train. We had been watching Rawhide but thought we'd do something a little different this time. These great westerns are surely not realistic, but isn't that why we watch them?

Afterwards, Dad loaded us up (including the big white dog we now have) and took us to Wendy's for a Frostie. Wendy's gives discounts to students, staff and faculty of our little college, so that was a nice and inexpensive dessert for all of us. I think the dog would have liked one, too.

DH and I have been discouraged by the changes in our culture. Yesterday he said to me that he didn't like this world anymore and didn't feel as if he belonged. I agree 100%. But that is how we are supposed to feel. We are told to live in the world by not to be conformed to it. When we grow comfortable with a fallen world's values, we have forgotten what is right and wrong in the eyes of God.  I would much rather have a place in His Kingdom than in man's world any day!

God bless and keep you all as you serve Him and each other this week.


  1. I often feel the same way. I take comfort in Philippians 3:20.

  2. Yes, you are right. What a great reminder. Thanks, Sarah!
