Manvel Seafood & Grill

Posted on November 17, 2016 by in The Galloping Foodie

We have found some GREAT affordable seafood here…

Manvel SeafoodWe can’t say enough about the freshness of it and the great service you get. Their LUNCH SPECIALS are very affordable, filling and they get them out pretty darn fast. If you like seafood but don’t want to pay arm and a leg for it, this is a great option.

 
Take a look at this Boudin Royal…

Although we didn’t catch it on the lunch special – it was so worth it!

  
Look at these plates, even the fries were awesome!

You can read the whole review and look at their scorecard in the Holiday issue of the Good News.

Little White Crosses USA

Posted on November 9, 2016 by in Good Things

The Little White Crosses are now being made in Santa Fe…

The Santa Fe Good News Magazine is accepting the “relay CROSS” from Mr. Johnson to begin building them right here in our town. He has graciously given us another load of his crosses until we can try to keep up with the demand ourselves. We are committing to one year of “cross building” just like the Johnson’s did.

We want to do this in order to see to it that everyone in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas that wants a cross in their yard, can have one – FREE of charge. Christ gave us a great gift and we want to share it with anyone who wants it by way of this Little White Cross movement.

We have 2 PICK UP locations that we will try to keep stocked…

REMAX REALTY located at 13109 Hwy 6, courtesy of Monica Rojas and GALCO HARDWARE STORE located at 12920 FM 1764, courtesy of  Scott and Cecilia Eckenrode, Monica’s parents. 

They are FREE to anyone who wants to quietly share their belief with the world.

If you would like to be involved in this movement in any way – please contact us and we will put you on the list of people wanting to support this silent protest for change in the direction of America in a quiet Godly way.

We will accept donations because we believe God will send them our way, but we would prefer supplies, labor, prayers and shares – rather than money, especially checks. This is only because we are not a 501c nor do we want to become one for a year and because we have more than enough red tape trying to run this business.

If you would like to find out more about this movement, you can click the links and watch a video below.

In the beginning… it started in support of a cross at the Port Neches park that an Atheist Group, Freedom From Religion, wanted removed because it was on city property. They are going all over the country doing this… but what has happened is unbelievable and amazing. This has become a movement by Gods people, standing up for the Lord and for our right as Christians, by displaying a little white cross in front of every Christian home that wants one. As Christians we know what the cross stands for. This is something God is doing and He has made it possible for this to happen.

They are still being offered in Port Neches until their supply is depleted…

If you would like some crosses for your friends and family, you can pick them up at 3161 Nall St  in Port Neches, Texas. Just pull up and take as many as you would like… they are FREE. We also leave them at Nicks Grocery and Judice’s in Port Arthur and the Big Store in Crystal Beach right now.

These crosses are in around 40 states and in two other countries spreading the love of Jesus. People in other states have started making them after seeing what has happened here. If you would like to join our group on Facebook CLICK HERE. Please pray for this movement and when some one asks you about the crosses, please share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them.

Editor’s Note: Mr. Johnson and his family have made the crosses for a year and believe that they are going to pass them on now, but you just never know what God may require of people who are obedient. They have graciously set us up to build for a year and it is our intention to pass it on to a neighboring town in a year as well.

“We believe the nation is going in the wrong direction,” said Mr. Trimmer, 82. “We seem to be losing more things that the country was founded on, good Christian principles.

I Gave You an Abundant Life!

Posted on October 28, 2016 by in Sunny Side UP

“Everybody else is doing it.”

“You’re not everybody else.

You are My child.”

Go to the fence and look over it. Can you see the green pastures? What do you see? Isn’t it pretty over there? Wouldn’t you like to live over there and walk those paths? I’ve laid out your life over there for you. All that remains is for you to walk through the gate and keep walking. Do you believe me or not?

 

That is the life I’ve given you. You can either live it or stay where you are. You can press forward and move on or stay stuck where you’re at. The choice is yours. What do you want? Do you want it bad enough to go through what you have to go through in order to get it? I’ll walk with you. I’ll help you. I’ve done all I can do, the rest is up to you. You don’t have to do it alone, but I can’t make the choice for you.

 

Do you wonder why you are here? I didn’t put you here, you did. I put you over there in my plan. But you didn’t want to follow my plan. You wanted to make your own way and that’s how you got where you are. I’m still willing to let you live there, but you have to choose to go there. It starts in your mind and then your body follows.

 

You keep getting it backwards. You have these notions of how you think it’s supposed to be. Your notions aren’t right. I know how it’s supposed to be. You either come over to my way of thinking or you stay stuck where you are. I gave you the world by the tail, take what I’ve offered or stay where you’re at.

Lercy’s Diner

Posted on October 25, 2016 by in The Galloping Foodie

14825570_1242981759093685_787551796_nIt’s a family owned chain…

The next time you find yourself on I-10 between Beaumont and Houston at lunch time, we have located not one but two – great choices!

Mark and Joy Cooper serve up some great lunches from their steam tables. Each location offers a choice of several entrees, a long list of vegetables to choose from and you get a bread choice and dessert, all for less than $10.00.

The food is very tasty, the line moves pretty darn fast and the service is great!

The serving sizes are on the small side by today’s standards, but that’s actually not a bad thing and here’s why…

They serve the meal like it was done in the old days, complete with vegetables, choices of breads (biscuit, yeast roll or cornbread) and a dessert. By the time you eat everything on your plate you are full, but not miserable. And we consider that to be a GOOD thing! 

2 locations to serve you

1203 North FM 565 in Baytown, Texas (281) 576-6975 and 2122 Hwy. 124 South in Winnie, Texas (409) 296-3299

We have been to both of them and they both get two thumbs up! You can see more photos and details in the FALL issue of the Good News Magazine.

When you hear the owner call most of his customers by first name, you know you’ve found a good home town business.

Worldwide GOOD stuff we’ve found…

Posted on September 21, 2016 by in Good Things, Worldwide GOOD News

Christmas of Many Colors

Last December, just in time for Christmas, the amazing Dolly Parton delighted viewers and critics alike with her deeDollyply heartwarming tale drawn straight from her inspiring real life and music. In an all-new holiday sequel, the Partons, a family of humble means living in the mountains of Tennessee, face a devastating event that challenges their will. But when they experience a bewildering Christmas miracle, the Partons are drawn closer together than ever – with deepened faith and love for one another.

It is scheduled to be a two-hour NBC movie event, stay tuned for details.

The original movie is a GOOD family Christmas movie starring Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland) as Parton’s mother, Avie Lee Parton; Ricky Schroder (NYPD Blue, 24) as Dolly’s father, Lee Parton; Gerald McRaney (Longmire, Deadwood, House of Cards) as Grandpa Jake Owens; and the young Alyvia Alyn Lind as 9-year-old Dolly. If you missed it – you missed a great opportunity to enjoy some quality television.

See the trailer for the original movie below and it may be purchased on DVD now at the link below.

 

You can order your copy HERE.

Red Oak Cafe

Posted on August 31, 2016 by in The Galloping Foodie

We have found another winner… we’ve tried it 3 times and it’s been great every time!

The Red Oak Café is family owned with a special story. It’s the dream of one woman to honor her lost and beloved son.

The story can be summed up with a single statement…

A dream of one woman, delivered through the efforts of her entire family, together, creating a special dining experience that captures the personality of a lost and beloved son.

Inspired by Justin and brought to fruition by Kim Oravetz, and Justin’s brother, Ian Oravetz. They serve a very fresh “taste of Texas” menu at an affordable price. We have sampled here 3 times and it was delicious every time!

However, I will tell you it is very tough to decide what you want to order here. Both menus have so many choices (and they all sound delicious) that it really does take some time to decide what you want to try, so be prepared. The selection of add-ins for the pancakes alone is tremendous, as is the large panini list. Everything we have tried has been top notch, and we’ve only just begun. 13866866_10206173237682228_983985472_n

It’s all fresh, well seasoned, cooked properly and it’s really interesting food. And I don’t mean sprouts and tofu. Assorted cheeses and a wide range of peppers and salsas make the food exciting to try. We have only sampled the sawdust pie (it was very tasty), but the dessert menu is difficult to choose from as well. Be sure you walk in very slowly so you can ogle everyone’s plates on the way to your table. All of the food looks awesome!

13874845_10206173237602226_965635734_n

If you’re looking for a really nice place to have breakfast or lunch with friends or a daytime date – this is it! It’s a happy, happening place with a lovely surprise in the women’s restroom. (I can’t speak for the men’s.)

To Joey, with love…

Posted on August 11, 2016 by in Good Things, Worldwide GOOD News

For one SPECIAL night we will be afforded the opportunity to see this woman live on screen to inspire us once more.

Husband-and-wife singing duo Joey+Rory wanted more to life … so they chose less. In preparation for the birth of their child, the couple simplified their lives by putting their music career aside and staying at home, planting roots deep in the soil of their small farm, and the community they loved.

They believed God would give them a great story … and He did.Joey

In select theaters Tuesday, September 20—for one special night only—experience the incredible true story of Joey and Rory Feek in the poignant new film TO JOEY, WITH LOVE. Intimately filmed by the couple over two and a half years, the movie documents the stirring journey of the 2010 Academy of Country Music Top New Vocal Duo.

TO JOEY, WITH LOVE takes moviegoers from the birth of their daughter Indiana, born with Down Syndrome, through Joey’s struggle with and ultimate surrender to cancer—all amidst their never-ending hope in something far greater. God gave Joey+Rory a love story for the ages, one that is sure to inspire hope and faith in all who experience it.

Order your TICKETS HERE.
