On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Ladies of Grace Brunch

Our Ladies of Grace theme for our Christmas brunch on Tuesday was Christmas Around the World with tables decorated in accordance with our choice of country or locale. I chose Mexico because I thought it would be easy!! Ha! It actually turned out all right. I bought a sombrero and made colorful flowers from tissue paper the way we used to do in high school for floats! A red tablecloth, a balloon, and poinsettia plates and napkins completed my decorations!

Feliz Navidad!

As always, the party was potluck, with everyone to bring a dish that tied in with the decor of their table. I don't cook a lot of Mexican food, (maybe a taco sometimes), but I found a recipe on Pinterest for Cheesy Chicken Enchilada soup. DH had been warned that morning that the leftovers would serve as his lunch, but he did not have to worry because it disappeared very quickly. 

Louisiana
which meant dirty rice and sausage!


From the Northern States
Swedish meatballs and noodles

West Texas
My favorite - beans and cornbread!

Mediterranean
Greek salad and pita bread

India
An Indian dish which name I am unable to tell. ;-(












We have such a wonderful group of ladies for our Tuesday morning Bible study. Our gift exchange was the fun story of Mr. Wright and his family, with the back and forth and back and forth, which always causes confusion and brings lots of laughter!

Laughter is good medicine.

  1. Thank you...I do miss this...living in the south for 20+ yrs we did this every year, unfort. up here in the great white north, we just don't, forever whatever reason...maybe its a southern thing? I did suggest it once and got frowned upon. So...that ended it.

    Glad you had a wonderful time.
