I have stories of fire and water from this weekend…

The Daily Dash: July 11 2016 {Grilling Accident}

* Dallas shooter planned larger attack
* Protests all weekend, many arrested
* Bull kills matador killed on live TV
* Portugal wins first Eurpoean championship, beating France
* Andy Murray wins 2nd Wimbledon title; Serena Williams captures her 22nd grand slam title

This Week’s Verse: Ephesians 5:11
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

Inspiration: God gives us a vision & then takes us down the valley to batter us into the shape of that vision ~ Oswald Chambers


* We literally spent all weekend at the pool-the kids participated in their first city swim meet and my husband and I served as clerk of course for the meet yesterday. It was quite chaotic, but also quite an experience for them and now that they have seen the end goal, I think it puts their entire swim experience in perspective. It also makes me want to be even more village and for my son in particular to make sure he turns into a teenager that others want to be around and not run away from.

I also wanted to share a PSA: if you follow me and Instagram, you may have seen me share that I was cooking my very first “beer can chicken” on the grill (although it was with a Coke 😉 about 45 minutes into cooking, I went out and found the grill had gone off. So I turned the propane up and reignited a burner, want to huge fireball came upon me. Luckily, I did not get burned, but lost hair on my arms face and head. As someone new to grilling, I really didn’t know what I was doing and should’ve stopped to ask for research first. In retrospect, I learned I should have shut everything off and restarted from scratch. I count myself very lucky that nothing else went wrong and that I didn’t catch our deck on fire, so hopefully you all can benefit from my mistakes.
