Leaning Tower of Celebration

So, I’ve been wanting to make a cake…a light and fluffy, pretty white cake and just have fun.  Haha, well I did actually have fun, but the cake didn’t turn out as pretty as I was hoping and although the layers are thick and beautiful it wasn’t as light and fluffy as I was hoping for.  But, you know, I really enjoyed making it and this year is a year of celebrating and taking risks (more on that to come!:), so I call it my Leaning Tower of Celebration.

Love and Gingerbread

Do you find yourself longing for love, but don’t really know what it looks like even if you thought you did?  I’ve been having a hard time with that lately….love.  I believe in it and long for it and I understand and believe in God’s love for me, but I can’t grasp how HUGE it is!  I mean, it really is wide and high and deep and long. I mean, think about what He did for me and for you, would you do that for someone?  Don’t be so hard on yourself, though, and fill your heart and someone else’s heart with Love and Gingerbread from Summie’s Yummies🙂

Food, Wine, God

“Bread and wine brings us together in so many ways – physically, socially, emotionally, and even spiritually.” (Savor, pg. 288).  Food, Wine, God are all we need as we come together even if we fight it! So come on over and let yourself be reminded of God’s nourishing presence !

Do you struggle with that – with food and fellowship?  Sometimes, okay a lot of the time, I struggle with it.  Even though I am constantly thinking about food and how to make it healthy and what I can make next and who I can make it for, I struggle with ‘do I really need it or should I be thinking about it?’  I love making something for someone and I love the fellowship but then I struggle with it, too.  Even though I long for that special fellowship with friends and family – sharing food, wine and God together, where we can just sit and talk for hours.  I want to provide that for others, but I don’t feel like I am worthy of it or something…….UGGGGHHHH….
