BBQ & Family Time
We enjoyed much BBQ this weekend and as Emmet Otter so eloquently put it, It lifts my spirits......As a family we enjoy our time together on the weekends. It is a chance for us to reconnect and renew. You will usually find us outside doing something. This weekend we fired up the grill several times just to get a good practice run before the 4th of July....Adrian made his Peruvian corn on the cob again which is fabulous and then he tried out a new recipe called Argentine Leap Frog Chicken. He assured me there was no frog in it and that this chicken would change my life lol!! I am not sure I will ever say that chicken changed my life but it was definitely the best chicken I ever had! With plenty left over I can see some Fajitas in our future.
Our Family time does not always look perfect sometimes there are complainers, maybe even some bickering there could be a time out or two thrown in there as well. But the true reward is when we push through all that. I mean come on we are talking about 5 completely different personalities all trying to go on one narrow path in one narrow direction. And several of us Watts I won't mention names are known to be extremely clumsy ....Lets just say it sometimes looks a little messy. You probably can't see that in our pictures. So we take all that messiness and mix it together and hand it over to God, we humbly draw near to him and pray that he will bless our time together, and you know what, God is faithful and he meets us there, and our cup runneth over and we discover that when it is all said and done the bumps in the road are put behind us and we have some nice memories, and a few laughs to carry us on into the week ahead.
Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 3:13-14
