Strong and Beautiful

Eating and exercising. Living and breathing. Resting. Being set free in being the person God created you to be.  It’s a new season with pumpkins and spice and all things nice, but do you feel like you’re still just in the same rut, going around in the same cul-de-sac of stupidity but have this sense of just freedom but can’t seem to break through to it?  You’re not alone!  I’m right there with you!  How about we gather round the table and/ or go for a walk together and grow stronger and break free together..to be strong and beautiful….all the while pulling on God.  He’s that spark you can see!  Come on over and let’s have some Pumpkin Bread together!

Snowballs

It’s snowing!  Okay, maybe it’s not literally snowing in the hot Christmas South, but we can make it snow with these buttery melt-in-your mouth winter white Snowballs!  

These balls of white powder are shortbread-like cookies that make Christmas time, in my house, extra special.  You need a little sparkle of glittering snow on your Christmas table, making eyes wide with awe and excitement!

Snowballs

Snowballs

I’m warning you, they are messy, but so worth it!  If you make them small enough you can just pop them in your mouth without getting the powdered sugar everywhere, but that’s just hopeful thinking.  These cookies are made to make a little snow dusting.  You can keep popping them in your mouth,though, enjoying every bite of their buttery sweet texture that will just melt in your mouth.  If you don’t usually moan with an excited yumminess moan when you take a bite of something, you will when you take your first bite of these Snowballs.  I should call these Excited Moaning Snowballs because every time I make them, it seems like everyone just moans and does that ‘oh this is so good’ eye roll, especially my family members.  It’s kind of quite humorous:)
Come on over and get ready for a snowball fight as we mix and roll and get powdery white with this Christmas favorite and let Summie’s Yummies Sweet (and Snowy) Deliveries bring merriment and joy to your Christmas celebrations!:)  Merry Christmas!!!

Abundantly Free

If anything ‘I am a child of God.’  That is a new song we have been singing, or belting out, at church.  It’s so freeing and refreshing and mind renewing to just be reminded that I, and you, are children of the King most high (so we are Royal!) and that we have a good good father who calls us beloved, beautiful, abundantly free!

For some, the word father can mean something bad and just rub you the wrong way.  You are not alone, but know this- the word Father is a good word and you ‘are loved by Him, that’s who you are, that’s who you are!’

Wes’s Ginger Creams

Wes’s Ginger Creams…sweet and comforting to the soul and healing to the bones.  That’s what these soft gingery cookies remind me of – they have that homey warmth when you just need a taste of home, and in my case, a taste of my brother, Wes.
