After the ladies Bible study at church yesterday, I had the "seasoned" ladies come over for lunch at our place. Seven of them came, including our teacher who is the pastor's wife. I made the famous Minnesota Chicken Wild Rice Soup, Poppy Seed Lettuce-Strawberry Salad, Olive Rosemary Breadsticks and my favorite Oatmeal Raisins Vanishing Cookies. I am glad I got to do this to these honorable women. They have all been my great source of encouragement. I tried to make the little luncheon very special for them. I had my Royal Albert Old Country Rose Bone China set out. I got to use the very pretty Turin set for the soup for the first time. We got the said china set from the inheritance that Paul received from her grandmother who passed away last year. We wanted to buy the set to remember how beautiful grandma Dick was. We also get to talk about her Christ-like life when our guests notice the pretty china.

Paul bought these roses for me the other night. It was nice to have this arrangement as the center piece when the ladies were over for lunch yesterday. They asked me if the roses were for a special occasion, I told them that my husband is a sweet guy, he likes to bring me flowers from time to time when he comes home from work. And they said, "ohhhh!"
