quiche, the inauguration and other things

They were really, really, really good. And they save well for a quick breakfast on a weekday morning.

I substituted the bacon for some ham that we needed to use up. I think it would be fun to try artichoke or broccoli in place of the spinach, too.

On Monday, I officially started my new job by attending the Inauguration of Governor Mary Fallin and Lt. Governor Todd Lamb (and many other elected state officials). I also went to the Governor’s Inaugural Ball that evening. It was fun, but really cold. Reeeeaaallly cold. Especially when it took 40 minutes for the valet to bring the car around! Haha.

I am  heading into my second week of my last semester of school. Busy is the word that best describes the last 14 days. I am trying very hard to prioritize so that I can accomplish what needs to be accomplished.

Pastor Clarkson preached on “time” this morning. In the KJV version of Ephesians 5:15 where it says “walk circumspectly”, circumspect is translated in the Greek as the English word “acrobat”. Basically the phrase means: life is a balancing act. Yes, it is. And it takes a lot of determination and focus and courage to balance it well.

Here are some quotes that I’ve picked up through my readings on the web this past week:

“The broken heart is the healed heart.” (The Valley of Vision via Resolved2Worship).

“The goal is to be ready for the future & to trust God in it so that you can enjoy it as it approaches.” (Pastor Mark Driscoll)

“Sometimes grace manifests as… the energy that suddenly illuminates us with understanding, allowing us to see what we had not been able to grasp before. Grace can also lift us into an altered state of consciousness in which we feel suffused by an unfamiliar energy -an indescribable combination of love, hope, and fearlessness.” (Caroline Myss via Enjoying the Small Things)
