5 Tips For Creating a Romantic Night and Fun Dinner at Home

Valentines Day is just around the corner and maybe you're already thinking how to make this occasion really special. Here are some ideas for a romantic and fun dinner at home either for several couples or just for two.
Sensual Scents
Whether planning for one guest or several couples, let robust spices (think cloves, canela, cardamom and black pepper) help set the mood with the help of a standard frying pan. Toast the spices just to their smoking point, and the room will fill with an inviting--and delicious--bouquet.
Pairing Is Caring
When prepping for a perfect evening, pairings are a fun way to turn any meal into a special occasion and spice up the fun. Plan three courses and pair each with a small cocktail. A fun and easy way is to use one base spirit in three different ways.
Make It A Group Effort Let your guests in the kitchen and encourage them to enjoy the tactile sensation of the food as it is prepared. Start the party early and enjoy cocktails as you cook.

Weekend inspirations: Daddy's Empty Chair*

It's time for another Weekend Inspirations and for this week i want to share this inspiring story..


DADDY'S EMPTY CHAIR

A man's daughter had asked the local minister
to come and pray with her father.
When the minister arrived,
he found the man lying in bed with his head
propped up on two pillows.

An empty chair sat beside his bed.
The minister assumed that the old fellow
had been informed of his visit.
'I guess you were expecting me, he said.

'No, who are you?' said the father.
The minister told him his name and then remarked,
'I saw the empty chair and I figured you knew
I was going to show up.'

'Oh yeah, the chair,' said the bedridden man.
'Would you mind closing the door?'
Puzzled, the minister shut the door.
'I have never told anyone this,
not even my daughter,' said the man.

'But all of my life I have never
known how to pray.
At church I used to hear the pastor talk about prayer,
but it went right over my head.'

I abandoned any attempt at prayer,'
the old man continued, '
until one day four years ago, my best friend said to me,
'Johnny, prayer is just a simple matter
of having a conversation with Jesus.
Here is what I suggest.
'Sit down in a chair;
place an empty chair in front of you,
and in faith see Jesus on the chair.

It's not spooky because he promised,
'I will be with you always'.
'Then just speak to him in the same way
you're doing with me right now.'

'So, I tried it and I've liked it so much
that I do it a couple of hours every day.
I'm careful though. If my daughter saw me talking
to an empty chair, she'd either have a nervous breakdown
or send me off to the funny farm.'

The minister was deeply moved by the story and
encouraged the old man to continue on the journey.
Then he prayed with him, anointed him with oil,
and returned to the church.

Two nights later the daughter called
to tell the minister that her daddy
had died that afternoon.
Did he die in peace?' he asked.

Yes, when I left the house about two o'clock,
he called me over to his bedside,
told me he loved me and kissed me on the cheek.
When I got back from the store an hour later,
I found him .

But there was something strange about his death.

Apparently, just before Daddy died,
he leaned over and rested his head on the chair
beside the bed. What do you make of that?'

The minister wiped a tear from his eye and said,
'I wish we could all go like that.'



Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.

I asked God for water, He gave me an ocean..
I asked God for a flower, He gave me a garden..
I asked God for a friend, He gave me all of YOU..
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it..

Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

How To Choose a Quality HVAC Professional

Florida is known for swampy days, lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. The worst feeling is the air conditioner going out in the dead of summer. Even the breeze off the water does little to cool the house. Here are some tips to choose a quality heating and cooling professional.
Referrals
Family and friends are a great place to start looking for a Riverview FL heating and cooling professional. They can tell you who they loved using and who they didn’t. A flashy website or radio ad may sound good but talking to people and reading testimonials can give you a better idea on whether or not they deliver on their promises.
Inspections
An HVAC contractor shouldn’t give you with an estimate over the phone without properly inspecting your insulation, air conditioner or vents. How can they know how much work is to be done without ever looking at your unique situation? An inspection shouldn’t cost you anything.
Licenses
If the HVAC contractor has a website, see if they post their licensing and c…

Cancelling Timeshares: When to Do It

Sometimes buying a timeshare will seem like a great idea upfront, but turn out to be something that doesn’t quite fit into your budget. In these circumstances, it’s important to consider how to get out from under a timeshare.
Why Cancel Timeshares
Sometimes timeshares aren’t what anyone thought that they would be. The pitch sounds good and so you sign up. While there is usually a period of time where you are allowed to rescind the contract. A few days to a couple of weeks is usually the timeframe that you have. If you decide after that point in time to cancel, then you may have to go through a longer process. Still, one of the reasons that people get rid of the timeshares is because it doesn’t fit into their budget. If this is you, then there are ways that you can get out from under it.
Timeshare Cancellation Services
Timeshares are notoriously difficult to sell. There is little control over timeshares. Likewise, there are fees that you have to pay, regardless of whether you use the pro…

He will take care of me

It's been two months since my condition became  worse. My health has deteriorated a lot. I have lost a lot of weight and looks so haggard. I've tried both the synthetic medicine and herbal medicine but to no avail. I guess I've made a wrong decision and I really regret that I did not ask the Lord for wisdom. But I'm not losing hope. I believe the Lord is faithful in His promises. The miracle healing I'm praying for is on its way now. I trust in the Lord with all my heart. This trial will soon be over.
