{A Whole Lot of Baking, Cooking and Loaded Tea Making Going On}

  Happy Sunday Afternoon friends. Hope you've all had a great week. I've been doing some cooking, baking and tea making.  I've really been enjoying making and creating loaded teas, shakes, smoothies and coffee drinks. I have not been writing down my recipes but guess I need to start doing that so I can remember what all I done! LOL!  I try to stick with healthy and low calorie drinks and have so many different things that I want to try.   But, this is an easy way to get extra vitamins, or Collagen, or protein.  I drink lots of water and this helps to give me something to add a little extra taste.   Mercy, I'm having too much fun with these teas. Decided to do a little baking this weekend too for my family. Pumpkin muffins with brown sugar topping was on my list for sure. I had enough batter left for miniature pumpkin chocolate chip muffins so baked a batch of those. If that wasn't enough already, I baked up some peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips. Needless t

Wednesday in the Word-Merry Christmas

  Luke 2 The Birth of Jesus 2  In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2  (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3  And everyone went to their own town to register. 4  So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5  He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6  While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7  and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. 8  And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10  But the

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD-Christ in Christmas

I found this poem and thought it to be appropriate to share for the holiday season. Another reminder to KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS! T'was The Night Before Christmas Not a Sign of Baby Jesus   T'was the night before Christmas and all through the town Not a sign of Baby Jesus was anywhere to be found. The people were all busy with Christmas time chores Like decorating, and baking, and shopping in stores. No one sang "Away in a manger, no crib for a bed". Instead, they sang of Santa dressed-up in bright red. Mama watched Martha Stewart, Papa drank beer from a tap. As hour upon hour the presents they'd wrap When what from the TV did they suddenly hear? 'Cept an ad.. which told of a big sale at Sears. So away to the mall they all flew like a flash Buying things on credit and others with cash! And, as they made their way home From their trip to the mall, Did they think about Jesus? Oh, no... not at all. Their lives wer


I've been reading "Why Nativity" by David Jeremiah. When I got to the chapter called, "Why the song of Mary" , I had to stop and try to take it all in . The song is called, Mag nificat , which means, "It magnifies" . In earlier translations of the Bible, Mary's first words were rendered as, "My soul doth magnify the Lord."  W e learn of us this song through scr ipture when Mar y went to visit her cousin El izabeth. When Elizabeth cri ed out in expression of joy Mary, having waited for days to sha re her amazing news that had come into her life, expressed a little joy of her own! She was carrying the Sa vior of this world! Mary lifted her voice in a song of praise to a wonderful God.   I cannot almost hear Mary singing can't you?  E ven in the midst of her carrying the Son of God in her womb, not knowing what tomorrow would hold, she praised Him ! E ven with her being a young woman, unmarried and a virgin, she praised Him!
