the one with a lot of cheese

I found myself dispensing advice this week...and as I said it, I knew it was true but I also knew I struggled to live it. Lately my coping mechanisms seem lame, cheesy, if you will. Wanna know what it is?

My hope is in the Lord. I shouldn't rely on my work, my relationships, or anything around me to give me hope. It's interesting too, when I fix my heart on the Lord, when I look to Him for hope and peace, the craziness of life seems a lot less crazy, a lot more manageable. I find myself reading all kinds of cheesy wall hangings and shaking my head "yeah - it IS thankful people who are happy, not happy people who are thankful". All the stuff I used to cringe at, seems to ring true.


I woke up yesterday with cheesy potatoes on the brain. Looked around the 'net and found a recipe that seemed easy enough. These are reheated, I didn't have the right light (as if I know anything about that) last night so this was my breakfast potatoes.

Cheesy potatoes for supper and breakfast? Yup. Thanks to this little one:


When I get a craving, it's no joke.


  1. Cute, Meliss! (both your post and Baby 'cido #2 :-). I'm shaking my're way more creative than me.....must have gotten that from your g'ma S.

  2. Did I miss something??!! Are you saying what I think you're saying? Congratulations! How far along are you? What a good u/s pic! I'm so happy for you. Totally didn't see that one coming through the first part of that post!

  3. Congratulations! So excited for you and Dave. Will be praying for a healthy baby!

  4. Congratulations Melissa & Dave! Sending prayers for the whole family!

  5. Congratulations!! Such exciting news. Praying for a healthy baby to fill your arms. Sammy must be so proud!!

  6. OH MY!!!! Congrats! I will add this new little cheese lover to my prayers (you are already in them!!!)


  7. Just look at that sweetness! <3 Sammy is a big brother!

  8. Oh Wow!!! Congratulations!! I am so happy for you and Dave! I will be praying you through this pregnancy because I know the fear that can grip you when pregnant after losing a baby! Remember to be Strong and Courageous! In no way does his baby "replace" Sammy, this baby is just another special addition to your family. I teach Gabriella about baby Desi, and we look at pictures of him together. She is learning to love her "big brother who lives with Jesus". :)
    Learn to enjoy each moment of this pregnancy and don't let fear steal your joy!!
