I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Events and Celebrations


Today is all about the beef with NATIONAL BEEF BURGER DAY, NATIONAL BRISKET DAY and NATIONAL HAMBURGER DAY.  Hamburgers are perfect for the grill.  I like to throw in some Worcestershire Sauce, bread crumbs, garlic, onion soup mix, pepper, some milk and an egg.  Mix it all up, mash out them patties and cook until they are just the way you like them.  The brisket on the other hand gets seasoned and then seared for about a minute.  Then put that sucker under low heat and cook it all day.  It’s a process, but well worth the wait.

Most awesome God.  We know you are in control and you are faithful to your word.  Thank you for all that you have done for us and all that you do.  Heal us from COVID and please continue to watch over these wonderful people.  Keep our children safe and comfort all of the loved ones of the victims from Robb Elementary.  Heal our friend of her cancer and thank you for another beautiful day.  In Jesus name I pray – Amen.
