This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Almost Perfect Potluck

Last night's potluck was a blast.  It had all the necessary ingredients:  laughing children, Kentucky Fried Chicken, casseroles, jello, banana pudding, Robert Redford Dessert (a.k.a. "Better Than Sex"), Derby Pie (shipped in from Louisville!), homemade rolls, and expanded waistlines.  We even sang the "Doxology" before eating!  The only thing missing was Van Camps Beanee Weenees.  Lyn and I actually stopped at Ralphs to buy some, but they didn't carry them.  I told Heidi (who was GREATLY disappointed that we didn't bring them) I would order her a case for Mother's Day.

Aside from the lack of Beanee Weenees, the occasion was picture perfect!

Careful Don.

I see another jell-o centerpiece in your future.

And I'll add those beanie things to it. Yummm.

I just looked at the pictures and it looks like so much fun! Don, I'll back you on this... weenee is certainly different than WEINER! :)

I never realized they actually came in a can. We always just threw cut up hot dogs into baked beans.

Wow. I really missed out!
