We studied the book of Job last night in small group at church. Well as much as you can in a 2 hr period. I think it's really interesting to see how different people and personalities deal with grief. I personally cry a lot and need a friend. It's during those times that you truly know who your friends are. We've dealt with several family deaths in the past 8 yrs. The hardest had to be my husbands parents and grandmother. I have had some wonderful friends that were always there for me despite most of them moving away. You know someone loves you if they are willing to come scrub your kitchen floor for you! I miss you K!

I will have to say that over the past couple of years, Amber and Lisa have become great friends and I know they are here for me through whatever. I want both of you to know how much I love you guys! Lisa's family is going through a very hard time right now and I just ask that you pray for them. I can't imagine going through what they are going through.

I know this is a bunch of rambling but last night made me really think about our time of grief that we have experienced and those that have helped us through. I'm not going to start listing because I don't want to leave anyone out but I want you to know that your friendship and love has been greatly appreciated even if you moved off and left us!!!!

I did a very in-depth study of Job last year. It was pretty intense. I think it is very important for us to listen to God as he tells us how to help people who are grieving. Sometimes it is the little things that really help get them through.

I just read Lisa' blog and it's hard not to cry from such heaviness of heart.

I love you guys too. And miss you very much. I'm praying.

Job's a great book.

You stopped by my blog and asked for my recipe for BBQ sauce. I couldn't find an e-mail address so I hope you don't mind me posting the recipe here. You might need to double or triple recipe depending on how much sauce you need.

1 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 TBSP butter or margarine
1 small onion peeled & chopped (can use onion powder to taste if you prefer)
1 TBSP. sugar
1/2 tsp. chili powder
3 TBSP ketchup
3 oz. plain yogurt

Melt butter in a small pan. Add onion and cook for 5 min. Add sugar & stir until dissolved. Add vinegar, chili powder & paprika. Mix ketchup with yogurt & add to the pan, stirring well. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
