Last-minute healthy dishes

These are some great recipes I am trying that I thought you might enjoy too!! Especially the freezer fudge!!

Do you have a crowd coming over and need some fresh new dishes to serve?  Or do you have an event to attend and need to bring an easy, healthy dish?  Here are a few of my faithful standbys that are both delicious and nutritious.  These are year-round favorites, but especially great this time of year when so many dishes are laden with bad fats, processed non-foods, chemically enhanced products and nasty white sugar.  Do what you can to boost your immune system with the fuel you put in your body!

I love this easy chicken salad.  After boiling and chopping about two pounds of chicken, I add a cup of green onions, a cup of celery, a half-teaspoon of cumin, with ground pepper and sea salt to taste.  I like to use grapeseed oil Veganaise instead of mayonnaise because of the better fats.   Walnuts or pecans are a great…

Morning Worship

035My Bible open, coffee brewed and steaming in a cup right next to me, the sun is just beginning to peek its light over the horizon. I sit and share a few precious moments with The Lord. The quiet house is so peaceful, but stuffy. I get up and open up the windows to let in some of the cooler air.  I pause and breathe in the crisp morning breeze. It fills me and I smile. Before returning to my Bible readings, I am captured by the song of a bird. So beautiful is its melody. That little bird God created, as soon as it sees the glory of the sun rising begins singing praises to The King. One singular bird, praising the most high with all his might. Moments later, more birds awaken and join in the joyful chorus. Not one of the birds singing the same tune, yet all together, they are melodious.  I am frozen to my spot thinking of the beautiful worship that is being delivered to my Savior right at that moment and how it must make Him feel. Silly as it sounds, I want to cry at the beauty of the short time I am blessed to be a part of.

Then as the world starts its day, vehicles begin zooming by, drowning out the sweet sounds of the little worshipers in the trees.  If you take a moment, you can still hear the birds in between the mechanical noises of the man made world. Is this the enemy’s way of us missing out on the daily praise nature has for God every time dawn breaks? Are we all so busy now, focused on what really does not matter that we are missing our morning worship of God?  The Lord blesses everyday with a beautiful new chance, a new day. There is worship provided by the birds. There is quiet to have a better conversation with our Father.

Lord, may I never be so busy as to not have time for You. May I be like the bird who at first light sings praise to You. You are my heart, my soul, my reason for everything. Jesus, may I not be drowned out like the songs of the birds by the world. May I be the song that someone is straining to hear and may that song lift Your name high! I love You so much Lord!

To you reading my thoughts, may your day be blessed my friend :)

Be a bird!

Til Next School Year Ladies

We have been finishing up so many of our group adventures these last two weeks. You would think that means that we have tons of free time ahead of us but it seems like all the empty spots just keep filling right back up with other joyous things for us to do!!

I was blessed to be able to have a goodbye breakfast potluck for one of my bible studies.

This is my homeschool momma’s bible study group.


This is just the beginning of all the food that was brought and shared!! It was so yummy and every dish was created (or bought) with love :)  I must have gained 5 pounds just sampling a little of everything!! My teens and my friend brought her teens, and there was food left over!! That is how abundantly blessed the morning breakfast was!! Thank You Jesus!!

Here is a picture of all but 3 of the ladies in our group.


Love these sisters in Christ so much!!

We all love to encourage each other so much in the Lord that we never even got past prayer and munchies!!

So much for planning next year’s bible study!! Ha ha ha!!

Just a quick peek at what my daughter and her friend made while we chit chatted.


They went outside and collected daisies…


Remember making these??

These two girls are so wonderful!!

I hope you have the most blessed day my friend!!

May the Lord shine on your day and give you joy!!
