We hungered for grilled boneless, skinless chicken breasts last evening. I seasoned four Tyson chicken breasts with Monterey Chicken seasoning. I braved the cold and slithered outdoors to perform this task. I charred the breasts on both sides nicely, over a high flame. I moved the breasts away from the flame and continued roasting them until they were done. I seasoned sliced cabbage, julienned red onion, sliced celery, and carrots (sliced thinly with a potato peeler) with ground black pepper and sea salt. I cooked this in the microwave oven while the chicken roasted. It was a delicious meal.

I completed reading Kenneth Hagin's book, "How You Can Be Led by the Spirit of God." This book describes the true leadings of the Spirit. It also gives warnings concerning some methods of seeking guidance which lead to trouble. The Scriptures on guidance are examined and carefully explained. After reading this book, you will better understand what being led by the Spirit of God is really like. I highly recommend this book.
