good quote

" In my opinion, the great single need of the moment is that light-hearted superficial religionists be struck down with a vision of God high and lifted up, with His train filling the temple. The holy art of worship seems to have passed away like the Shekinah glory from the tabernacle. As a result, we are left to our own devices and forced to make up the lack of spontaneous worship by ...bringing in countless cheap and tawdry activities to hold the attention of the church people." ~ A.W. Tozer

Nacho Grande Casserole

I haven't tried this recipe yet myself but I tried some that a lady I work with made and it was Delicious! So I'm posting it here so you can try it and if you do, let me know how it turned out.

Nacho Grande Casserole

2 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 (16 oz.) cans spicy chili beans
16 oz. pkg. frozen corn kernels, thawed
15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 1/4 oz. pkg. taco seasoning mix
3 cups finely shredded cheddar jack cheese, divided
3 cups nacho cheese tortilla chips, crushed and divided
Toppings: chopped tomatoes and green onions

- Cook ground beef and onion in a dutch oven over medium-high heat, stir until beef crumbles; drain.
- Add beans, corn, tomato sauce, and seasoning mix; stir until blended. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes.
- Pour half the beef mixture into a lightly greased 13"x9" baking dish. Top with 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and chips. Top with remaining mixture and remaining cheese and chips creating a layered look.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
- Sprinkle with chopped tomatoes and onions.

"God Give Us Good Men"

That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous ~ Proverbs 2:20
"God Give Us Good Men"

God, Give us good men,
Men who are great and strong,
Men who for truth and honor's sake
Stand fast and suffer long;
Brave men who work while others sleep,
Men who dare while others flee;
Men who build a nation's pillars deep
And strive to keep men free.

God, give us meek men
Men who know how to pray,
Men who will worship God alone
And walk with Him each day;
Wise men who know the Word of God,
Men who always do right,
Men who walk in deep humility
And trust in God's great might.

God, give us bold men
Men who have hearts ablaze,
Men who with broader vision seek
None but God's own praise;
True men with great integrity,
Men whose hearts the Lord has won,
Men who live in humble gratitude
For all that God has done.

The words to this hymn were written by Ralph Waldo Emerson and music done by Frank Garlock. I really like the words to this, though I'm still learning the music. I've prayed these things so many times and I'm so blessed to have known some of God's great men in this world; whether they were preachers, evangelists, missionaries, teachers, youth workers or just the behind the scenes kind of guy... I'm thankful for them and pray that there would be more like them.
