Tidbits of Encouragement

When the trials and difficulties of life bog us down, isn't it hard to realize the enjoyable treasures of each day? I have been struggling lately with many feelings of sadness and frustration, choking out the joys of a typical day (I do plan to write about a tragic incident that made our family and many others think about how short and precious life is). We often need a uplifting boost during a difficult time.

Here's one of my roses among the thorns: siblings. Happiness is found in the form of a child. My little brother Caleb will make me smile whether I want to or not. This is one quote from him that made me laugh...

"I don't know what God knows, but God knows everything I know."

Be encouraged and seek out the hidden gems of this day!

I Need YOUR Help!


My friend, Alyssa, keeps asking me when I'm am going to update my website, and I keep telling her, "Whenever I can find time!"

I have enjoyed transferring my old website to my new URL, but it has been a tedious process. I am pleased with the overall turnout, though several pages are uncompleted.

But here's you what you can do to help me out: contribute!

On the Poetry page, I hope to add more poetry which I have written, but I would love to have submissions from poets! If you don't write poetry, you can write a review about Godly Girlhood.org and it will be added to the About Godly Girlhood page. Recipes to Thyme in the Kitchen can also be contributed if you have a favorite recipe to share. I will also consider guest articles for the Article page.

If I chose your submission(s), I will put a link to your website or blog (that is, if you have a website). Also you may include a short biography of yourself as I will then create a contributors page for all of the contributors.

Send your submissions to godlygirlhood@localnet.com. Thank you for your help!

By the way, Alyssa, you've been tagged for your trouble!

In His Love,
Miss Taylor

The Perfect Snack

A box of Ritz crackers, block cheese, and summer sausage can go a long way and lead to the perfect snack/light lunch.

There are many different varieties of this easy meal, but the most typical combination is a piece of both cheese and sausage stacked on a Ritz cracker. The possibilies are endless. Block cheese, for example, is availible in many different varieties: chedder (mild, sharp) colby, pepper jack, colby jack, etc. Ritz crackers also come in different flavors: if you prefer a vegetable taste, try Roasted Veggie; perhaps you enjoy healthier crackers-Ritz Wheat Crackers are for you; if you are like me, Orignal Ritz will satisfy your desires. Sausage also a varied, but limited, selection to chose from. Next you can add new twists to the generic version. Try BBQ sauce on your stack of cheese and sausage, or a leaf of lettuce! (I personally prefer the BBQ sauce better than the lettuce.:)

Now you won't be at a loss for the perfect snack! Enjoy!
