Show me a Sign...

So, the first thing I read this morning, was an email, entitled, "Show me a sign..."
Before I go on, I want to preface this blogpost.  Last night, I worked late, it was a hard end of the day.  Unhappy people, I was tired.  Seems all I do in real estate anymore, is mediate.  I was not physically tired, just mentally exhausted.  So, when I read the email, show me a sign, I prayed this sentence in the email, "show me a small sign of your favor on my life". 
Psalm 86:16-17
"Turn to me and have mercy on me;
show your strength in behalf of your servant;
save me, because I serve you
just as my mother did.
Give me a sign of your goodness,
that my enemies may see it and be put to shame,
for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me."
So, off to work I went.  I had a great morning.  Listed a house, helping an old friend,  and on top of that Holly assisting is always fun.  My appointment at lunch was a Chamber of Commerce luncheon.  I really did not have time to go, but I went.  The luncheon was held at UT Tyler, and it was a sports theme.  I thought to myself, omg, I have so much to do, and the last thing I want to do is listen to a sports fanatic.  I live with one 100% of the time..... lol
Lunch was good.  Then, I realized, it was football, and the football legend, Earl Campbell was making an appearance.  I perked up.  :)  The invocation was led by the headmaster of a school in Tyler.  In his prayer, I was already tearing up.  He quoted Romans 12:1, in short, being a living sacrifice, and he said, "don't quit".  That's all I heard, "don't quit".  My sign just appeared, I was looking for a sign.  I had prayed for a sign.
So, at this point, God had my attention.  The next person on the program was young, former football player.  He probably gave one of the best, short speech's I have heard in a long time.  These were his points.
*  Dream Big- work hard
*  Choices- everyone has choices.  You can choose the good, your choice.
*  Positive- if you choose to be around positive people, you will have positive results.
Never Quit
*  Education- never stop learning
*  God First Always!
There is my sign again.  I'm listening God.
So, yes, I thought today's lunch was a waste, but God knew differently.
And, Yes, I am stilled tired, but I will persevere.  I will get through the hard times.  I will learn from the hard times!  Thank you Lord, that I have the ability to listen and learn.  Thank you Lord, that I have a job.  Thank you Lord that I can pray to you, no matter the circumstance.  Thank you Lord, for positive influences in my life. 
God showed me favor today.  I think he may have said "here's your sign". :)

What a Pair...

In May of this year, Holly Hightower, decided to make the move to work with me as a Realtor!
Love, Love, Love Holly!

We are becoming quite a "Pair"... liken this to a smooth, creamy, chocolate sauce drizzled over a "Pear", with scrumptious
whip cream.  We mesh together, oh, so well!

Then there are days, when the "Pear" gets a good ole dose of carmelization!  Nerves on end, dealing with money and
people, sometimes, do not mix.
See the sweet raspberries circling the "prickly pear"...
Well, this is how Holly and I cope!  We switch places, one listens, the other vents and vice versa.
I happen to be the sweet raspberry today, lol Holly!
So, hold your head up Holly, keep on keeping on!  Tomorrow will be better!

We do seem to work great as a "Pair"!
I want to thank Holly for all she does.  I want to thank God, that Holly is working along side me, I want to
thank Holly for her laughter and her "goodness".  Goodness, doing the right thing for the right reason!
God Bless our businesses!

Cream Soda Punch...

This is the "sugary syrup"...

Cream Soda Punch

I had this punch at a House Warming a few weeks ago.  I recently posted this recipe on my real estate monthly postcard, which should be in your mailboxes soon!
It is a sugary syrup, then added as a concentrate to Chilled Gingerale!  So refreshing and easy!
I love "make ahead" recipes.

Combine 5 cups sugar and 2 cups water.  Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
Combine these ingredients and add to the cooled syrup mixture:
1 T Fruit Fresh
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 oz almond extract
1 oz vanilla extract

Add 1 cup concentrate to a 2 liter bottle of gingerale.
Serve over ice.
Makes 90 (4 oz) servings.

Happy Summer,
