Bacon Roasted Cheesy Potatoes

It's been awhile since I shared a recipe and today's recipe makes up for that, I promise!  These Bacon Roasted Cheesy Potatoes are easy and delicious.  I've been making them for awhile and everyone loves them.  I made them for dinner one night when our house was of bridesmaids and groomsmen and they went fast.  I'm sure your family will love them as much as we do.  

Your family will love these potatoes and you'll love how easy it is to make them!

Memorial Day 2015

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving their country in the Armed Forces.  It's not to be confused with Veteran's Day.  Today we honor those who gave their lives to protect our freedom...



This is a photo I took while visiting Arlington Cemetery 10 years ago. 
 I will never forget watching the changing of the guard.  
It was quite moving.

Psalms 113:2 Scripture Sunday

If you read my blog earlier this week, you know that my sister-in-law, Beth, passed away suddenly. On Monday, we attended her funeral and burial.  Beth was Jewish and both the funeral and burial were on the same day.  While we were at the graveside, the rabbi recited The Mourner's Kaddish.  

When I was home, I looked up this prayer and loved the words.  They were such a comfort to me.
This prayer is said for those who have passed on, however, it makes no mention of death, loss or mourning.  There is no mention of the person who died. Kaddish speaks of God's greatness.  In fact, it is an affirmation of belief in the Almighty and His unlimited power. 

The Mourner's Kaddish

Glorified and sanctified be God’s great name throughout the world
which He has created according to His will.

May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days,
and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon;
and say, Amen.

May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.
Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored,
adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He,
beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that
are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

He who creates peace in His celestial heights,
may He create peace for us and for all Israel;
and say, Amen.

A Wedding and a Funeral
