Tasty Tuesday- Resturaunt Review!

 Photo of Horseshoe Cafe - Wickenburg, AZ, United States. There it is!

 Soooooo we've been going on food adventures and the horseshoe cafe has by far been THE MOST ADVENTUROUS adventure we have been on thus far!!! Duuuuuuude!!! My sister and i have been laughing about this place for a day straight, great entertainment buuuuuuut i had difficulty actually eating here!!!

I have to admit that some of my close friends live in the small, remote, uh slightly odd town of Roswell, NM annnnnnd i admit to having made some snarky comments about the city before, (SORRY!;)  buuuuuut after experiencing Wickenburg AZ,  Roswell seems VERY GLAMOROUS!!!! (:

I would like to explain WHY i gave Horseshoe cafe four stars because the food was good, the staff was very friendly and the prices were FILTHY CHEAP...along with the rest of the restaurant!!!! AHAHAHAAA!!!

As soon as we walked in, which was around 8 am, my shoes started squeaking from the sticky floor, flies everywhere, just old stains on the walls, hair stuck in wall decor, tables and chairs seemed ancient, smell of cigarettes in the air due to the door being open and everyone on smoke breaks and although funny sayings and quaint decor, there was a very cluttered feel to it, im definitely not minimalist but it was too much for even me!!! Lol

Generally speaking, i consider myself to be on more the ghetto side of things, but inside there, I felt like the queen of England!!! The other customers, whom im assuming were locals of the small town could not stop staring at us, like we were from another planet...it was very awkward feeling, LIIIIIIIKE, is it weird that i actually brushed my hair,  fully dressed, annnnnnd have fake teeth instead of empty front gaps?! Bahahaaaa

To eat we got pancakes and french toast because it felt the safest, no dairy, no meat! Both were very good and the pancakes were just the way i like them with that crispy, buttery edge!

I had really wanted to try their chicken fried steak and biscuits and gravy, buuuuuuut i just couldn't do it, the atmosphere made me overly cautious, I'm adventurous, buuuuuuut perhaps one of you all could find out for me!!! ;)

The reason why i don't rate them less is because they are what they are and that's who and what they want to be! They ain't trying to be uppity or something that they're not! They don't care what you or anyone besides Trump thinks!!! They don't care if they are five stars or negative 5 stars! They're are signs everywhere that they don't care about your complaints! I take it that they are for the locals of that city and that city loves them! They are for their people, outsiders can come but that's not their target audience!!! If you don't like them don't come back, ANNNNNND guess what?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I WON'T BE!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

Just stupid, NOT Stupid-stupid!!!

Soooooooo miraculously, we ACTUALLY had some really nice weather this past weekend. Of course you all know what that means for me, I'm hitting the mountains!!!

Weeeeelllll I had been putting off buying new hiking shoes, cuz weeeeellll let's be real, hiking shoes are UGLY and although needed, they're kinda like buying new tires for your car-BORING!!!!On the way up the mountain, everything was JUST FINE!!!
 .

HOWEVERRRR, on the way down was a completely different story!!! First of all, a bee decided to chase me AGAIN!!! (Remember last year HERE!!!) I don't know WHY buuuuut they always want to just nestle in my hair and I'm like NOT cool with that!!!  

.

Soooooooo I just take off running down the mountain and the bee starts chasing me. WEEEEELLLL all of the sudden my shoes lose traction and I slip and fall like I never have before. I slide down and fall on my back. One leg is pulled completely straight back behind me. Thankfully, i'm a very STRETCHY person and nothing was broken. Just a big cut on my elbow. (can you imagine the ambulance coming up the moutain-although it might be kinda fun being carried on stretcher down the mountain! LOL) 

.

Buuuuuuuuuut the fall REALLLLLLY scared me. The whole time, the rest of the way down I kept praying and asking God not to let me fall again. Buuuuuuut then as an after thought, I said, AND GOD, I also PROMISE TO THROW THESE OLD, WORN OUT, HIKING SHOES annnnnnd will NOT go hiking again til I have bought new ones. And when I got home, I took those old shoes and threw them in the trash!!!

.

You know why??? Because I can't expect to stay safe and then go directly putting myself back in danger!!! I may have been stupid to hike in them once, BUUUUUUUT I wasn't going to be STUPID-stupid!!!! 

.

Often in life, we get ourselves into stupid spiritual situations. AND even though its all our own fault, God is merciful on us and brings us out of our own mess up. BUT we can't just keep the same old shoes and expect not to slip up again. We've got throw those old messed up shoes away, pay the spiritual price and invest in something new!!! 

.

At one time or another, we can all be STUPID...

BUUUUUUUUUT...

We don't have to be STUPID-stupid!!!

Even in my sleep...

Sooooooooo the other day I'm having this dream, that my sister and I are at Dillard's, shopping at one of their big sales. Well my sister goes to pay for her $2 item and the cashier says to my sister, "that'll be $6!" And my sister says, well it's marked $2  and the lady says, well yeeeesss, buuuuut we're adding on an automatic $3 fee for the big sale today.
.
Soooooooooo my sister is like, well that makes NO SENSE Forget it I dont want it! And the lady says, it's too late, you can't leave the store without paying the $3 fee, plus the other two for the product EVEN if you don't want it now because someone else COULD'VE already bought it by now. 
.
Soooooooooo they're arguing back and forth, the cashier is suggesting she just pay the $6 DOLLARS, the place is packed out with crazy shoppers, (Btw: I wasn't buying anything, sooooo it REALLY WAS a dream!!!;) Sooooooooooo just as security was about to be called on my sister, I wake up...
.
Annnnnnnnnnd the first thing I think is WAIT, $2 plus $3 isn't $6, IT'S FIIIIIIIIIIVVVVEEE DOLLARS!!!!Then I was liiiiiiiike OMW....
EVEN IN MY DREAMS...
Sorry, I havn't accomplished sleeping selfies-YET! Still working on that!!! ;)

Pentecostal kids 2020!!!

 You might me a Pentecostal Child in 2020 WHEN...

When your quoting Acts 2 and instead 

of saying cloven tongues you say...

 COVID TONGUES!!!

 True story folks!!! So the kids at LCA, our church school, are memorizing Acts 2 and O started saying COVID tongues...I waited for the school to correct it just cuz it made me laugh so hard and I wanted everyone else to laugh too!!! (I BELIEVE Pastor has corrected him though! HAHA!!!) 

Thankfully, COVID tongues are NOT

 the evidence of the Holy Ghost!!! 

"And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." (Acts 2:1-4)

Just Flirting ( Devotional Repost-2015)

Flirting!!! I was thinking about that...as a SINGLE person, there is JUST SOMETHING about FLIRTING!!! LOL!!! I mean lets all be honest...its FUN in the right context of course! Ya know what I mean, that harmless, fun teasing between a guy and girl...ahhhh...FUN TIMES!!! HAHA!!! I mean think about it you know when you just feel that SPARK...that chemistry??? Your just like OH WOW!!!
.Reaction Animated GIF | Vintage cartoon, Cartoon profile pictures, Cartoon  pics
This one time, i had this HUGE crush on like a very, very, VERY HANDSOME Apostolic young man buuuuuuut as we became friends, thats ALL it was...good conversation buuuuuut I NEVER felt sparks...its like no matter how attractive of a person that he was, there was just NO CHEMISTRY!!! sooooo i just kind of lost interest in him and the next thing I knew I fell for this OTHER guy and honestly, he really wasn't as good looking as the other guy, buuuuut there was something about our personalities together annnnnd man there were sparks!!! AHAHAHAHA!!! Even tho it would be hard TO ACTUALLY start a convo with him...once we did...MAN...chemistry was STRONG!!! Some of my close girls were like, BUT MARY, the other guy is better lookin and you could talk to him easily, annnnnnd this guy isn't as good lookin and its HARDER for you to talk to him...
.
I'm like I know buuuuuuuuut SPARKS girls...SPARKS!!! I mean really, MY NAME IS MARY GINTY and i'm the daughter of Frances Ginty, talking comes NATURALLY for me!!! I could talk to pretty much ANYONE, I could probabley even get a mute person to talk to me...BAHAHAHA!!! So i'm mean...just BEING able to talk to someone...is NOT a big deal for me...like HELLO...BORING!!! HOWEVER, not every person that I talk to, do I feel sparks...ANNNND I LIKE SPARKS!!! Yup! Yup! There is just NOTHING like some GOOD O FLIRTING!!! Can I can and AMEN from anyone out there??? ;)
.
Buuuuuuut at the same time, none of us want to be KNOWN as a FLIRT!!! None of us want to be known as the kind of person that flirts with everyone, without really having ANY sort of a true interest in them...being that way...it just gives you a BAD REPUTATION!!!
.
I remember seeing a friend, a really good, Godly young lady, one time talking to a guy and after a few weeks I asked her, SOOOOO are you INTERESTED??? And she was like, actually, NO, I don't think I am! And I was like, REALLY, WHY NOT??? I mean, i was really curious, because although I didn't know the guy all that well, he was definatley on the very handsome, attractive side and I knew quite a few girls that would just LOVE to have this guys attention. So my friend, just looked at me and was like, well I don't mean to talk bad about him, buuuuuut to be perfectly honest, he is just TO MUCH OF A FLIRT!!! (Aka: A PLAYER!!!)
.
Nobody wants a FLIRT!!! And while flirting outside of marriage is okay, WHILE YOUR SINGLE, within marriage, aside from flirting with each other, FLIRTING with other people is NOT ok! I mean, being VERY SINGLE and all myself, I do NOT know all that much about marriage, buuuuuut I do know, that I would NOT be okay with my husband flirting with other woman! How would you feel if you were married and your spouse was flirting with other people, and when you brought it up, WHAT IF they didn't think it was a big deal??? WHAT IF their response was...I'm NOT CHEATING on you...
I'm JUST FLIRTING!!!
.
Oh man!!! I would sooooooo NOT be ok with that!!! Talk about INFURITATING!!! I mean come on...We're married!!! ACT MARRIED!!! We can all CLEARLY see this concept and YET, I see SOOOOOOO much, people IN THE CHURCH... that are SUPPOSED to be in a sold out relationship with Jesus Christ, JUST FLIRTING WITH THE WORLD!!!

Bookie Day #2 (Wonderland Creek)

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...Alice Grace Ripley is your typical librarian. She loves books and doesn't really live much outside of them until her boyfriend dumps her and she gets laid off due to budget cuts during the depression. “If my life were a book, no one would read it. People would say it was too boring, too predictable. A story told a million times. But I was perfectly content with my life – that is, until the pages of my story were ripped out before I had a chance to live happily ever after.” 

I'm not sure why I decided to do my first book review on here about a book that I didn't like, buuuuuuuuuuuuut, moving on....WONDERLAND CREEK!!!!  This is my absolute favorite book of fiction everrrrr!!! It's funny, adventurous, historical, it has several mysteries, it talks about prejudice, forgivness and even a little side of love!  I think I can relate to Alice in the sense that I know what it's like to really start living after the pages of your happily ever after gets ripped out and God starts writing your story. (mY STORY here)
.
On an unusual whim, Alice decides to get out and goes with her Aunt and Uncle to deliver books to the poor people in the mountains of Kentucky, she never imagines that this one decision will take her on a fantastical, life-changing adventure. 
.
As this sheltered city girl looks at the bloodied man, dying from a gunshot wound, in the middle of nowhere, this is the moment she starts really living..."If there's no doctor in town, what do people do when they're hurt or sick?" I asked. "You know how to pray girl?" "My father is a minister..." "Well, unless he's hiding out in the next room, he ain't gonna be any help to us is he? We best get praying!" 
.


"She hates me!" Alice says of Bell, the horse Lily has forced her to learn how to ride. "Horses don't know how to hate Honey, only people are that stupid!" Says Lily. 
.
The hero in this book is a 100-year-old black lady named Lily that has lived through slavery and hatred and overcome bitterness. She is the town's natural healer, mid-wife and known by all for her wisdom. Her only desire before going home to heaven, is knowing that her son, who her owner had sold and she has never found, knows Jesus. And while holding on to this one last dream, she pushes Alice into becoming the woman God wants her to be.
.
“Ain't I been trying to tell you that you can't be holding grudges against people? Didn't you hear me say that? What do you think Jesus is gonna say if we come walking up to those pearly gates carrying a whole sackful of grievances and grudges on our backs? Jesus is gonna ask, What's that you toting on your back? Do you want to be opening that sack and showing Him all those ugly thing? He's dressed all in white and shining like the sun, and you're coming in with a load a hate in your your arms? Umm hmm. I can't imagine doing that.” 
― Lynn Austin, Wonderland Creek
.
This book covers some pretty hard, rough places. While entertaining you with humor and mystery, amidst a family feud, a fake death, attempted murder, hidden treasure, lonely hearts, families searching for work, justice for the underpaid and overworked miners, baby blues, you are intrigued to search your own heart and pushed to dig deeper, go further and to just be a friend. This fantastical book of adventure ends with Alice back at home simply saying...
"I think Miss Lily is the wisest woman I've ever met." 
THE END

I highly recommend this adventure story!!!! 

You can order it paperback or my favorite Audible HERE!!! 

If you have any great book titles or authors that you recommend please let me know!!!
