Totally random Tuesday

We had our spring women's ministry luncheon today.  I have to tell you - I've been so crazy lately - I feel like a hamster trapped in a wheel.
I had planned to make this Italian pasta salad and cookies for today. At 9:30 last night - AFTER going to the grocery store - I started making the cookies and realized we had no eggs. I had either dyed or made deviled eggs out of all the ones we had. So I scratched the cookies and made the salad. This is a great salad that my mom has always made. I don't have an exact recipe - you can pretty much make it what you want but I thought I would share it.
Cook tri colored rotini.

Let it cool and mix in:
1 can black olives (sliced or whole)
Grape tomatos
Cut up squares of mozzerella

And cover it all in zesty Italian dressing and let it mix and soak in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving. It's a great side or a meal.

And as a continuing confession............I was dressed up today in a maxi dress and Hollis peed all over me right before we needed to leave. It was too late to find something new to wear so I just tried to wash it out. So I went to the luncheon in a peed on dress. Life is funny!

Remember when I wrote about a sweet family in my church who have the motto of "Represent Him well" and have it hanging in their house so they can remember as they leave each day to represent Christ? 
I have a friend Kaye who makes signs and she loved that idea and made some and she sent me one this week. I have it on my mantle and I LOVE it! I thought I'd share it!  She makes all kinds of neat signs!

Pete Wilson is a pastor in Nashville (he's actually Angie Smith's pastor) and he has travelled with Compassion. He wrote the book "Plan B" which was an awesome book. It was a best seller.

He has a new book "Empty Promises" which comes out today.  I thought it might resonate with a lot of you. 
We all long for more of something in our lives. In our endless pursuit to feel worth and acceptance we find ourselves sacrificing everything for the promise to be a little more beautiful, a little richer, a little more powerful and successful, a little more loved.
How do we break free from these empty pursuits and start chasing the only Promise that will ever satisfy? How do we uncover the hidden idols that are driving us and turn our devotion toward the one true God?
Join Pastor and best-selling author Pete Wilson in discovering the joy and freedom that comes with seeking after God with your whole life. Learn how to replace, and not just relinquish, life's empty promises by turning your focus and worship toward Him. It is the only thing that will set you absolutely free from the endless pursuit of everything else.

You can buy it on Amazon HERE. I think it will really speak to a lot of you!
