{Spicy ~n~ Sweet!}

Travis and I had our first Thai food experience earlier this week. I really wasn't sure WHAT to get but luckily we were with a friend who is a nut for Thai food so he was able to offer some good suggestions. I decided to go with the mildest Sweet and Sour veggies with chicken. Doesn't it look beautiful? Lots of fresh veggies and lots of colors usually means it must be pretty good for ya, too! I must say though---this Thai food thing is gonna take some getting used to:) The flavors are unusual and strong--and if our friend is reading this, I think I enjoyed the company more than the meal. But hey, the steamed white rice was perfecto! Lol!
...and so was the Ambiance!
We all shared this Tom Yum soup and the guys thought it was well---Yum---so I let them have it.... no problem!
And a meal is even better when you get a $25 gift certificate at Restraunts.com for $3!

That's the SPICY part of my week....
and here's the SWEET part~
Although she may have two horns on her head, this is certainly a little angel! Makayla manages to make an appearance on almost all my posts---might have something to do with the fact that she is just A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!
Eddie Munster Style!

One last thing....I read a quote from my church bulletin this week that I wanted to share because it really stuck with me---"Contentment is quickly ruined by comparison."
Isn't that so true??? It brought this verse to mind...

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
If you're going through a difficult time right now or feel that your circumstances are too much to handle, TAKE HEART! You're not alone, God's there with you every step of the way! And JOY will be found-I promise!
