Wednesday Bible Quiz Answer & New Question

Life is a bit crazy right now so my blog posts have been spread out a little more than usual but please bear with me!  I'll get back on track in a couple of weeks when I get a little break between Jewelry Parties.  Anyway, I know some of you have been waiting a whole week to know if you have the right answer to last week's Bible Quiz . . .

Joseph's mother was Rachel.  Why is that significant, you may ask?  Well, it may give insight as to why Jacob favored Joseph so much over his other 11 brothers . . . since Rachel was Jacob's favorite wife and it took her several years to bear a child (Joseph was her first), it seems natural that Jacob would begin to favor Joseph over the other children born to Leah.

Today's Bible Quiz question:  What New Testament person can we see portrayed through the life of Joseph?

Wednesday Bible Quiz

I've had so much fun this past week celebrating my 34th birthday . . . shopping, eating out, watching movies, hanging out at the beach . . . but now it's back to work and back to blogging.  Since it's Wednesday, you know it's Bible Quiz time but this one will be easy . . .

One of Jacob's sons was named Joseph.  Who was Joseph's mother?

Icy Cold Refreshment

As I was celebrating this Memorial Day weekend, it got me thinking about the hot days of summer that are just around the corner and the craving I get for an icy cold beverage . . . something other than water :-)  There are some great natural sodas out there but that would just be plain boring :-)  Besides, I learned that by mixing up my own concoction , I can control how sweet or sour or creamy the drink is. Whether you like Pellegrino, Perrier, Arrowhead or Crystal Geyser, it makes no difference in the overall taste so pick up a bottle of your favorite sparkling water and try mixing in a few of these ingredients. . .
  1. Cherry Limeade ~  Add frozen Limeade Concentrate, Cherry flavored syrup (the kind that is used in coffee drinks, etc.)
  2. PureFitness with Fizzle ~ Add Crystal Light Pure Fitness (any flavor) **Note:  Add the sparkling water to the Pure Fitness packet contents in VERY small amounts!!!  It will fizz like nothing you've ever seen and completely overflow your glass . . . been there, done that!
  3. Italian Sodas w/ Cream ~ Add French vanilla or Carmel flavored syrup (again, the kind that you find your local coffee shop stirring into their drinks) & about a tablespoon or two of whipping cream or half-and-half per serving. YUM!!!
Now when the weather gets hot, you can get rejuvenated with some Icy Cold Refreshment.
