What Now?

What do you do when you just don’t know what to do now? Uh, make an Spiced Apple Cream Cheese Cake (can be Gluten-Free) or maybe even some homemade Croissants? Uh yeah! And maybe, most definitely, just go to God – ‘God, You brought me so far, but what do you want me to do now? Help me to enjoy life, live life, love myself and those around me and just shine for YOU!!’ What now? Call a friend, go on a walk and just get in the kitchen and make something, enjoying every second of it! Let your mind and your body and your heart just relax and be patient with the whole process of buttery croissants – the result is very rewarding:)…or peeling and cutting up apples for a cake that tastes like fall. Allow yourself to just ‘be’, to just ‘enjoy’. Get out of your crazy whirlwind mind that’s just constantly on ‘go go go’ and allow yourself to rest, wrapped in His loving arms, hearing His gentle whispers.

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!

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!’

Paleo Spice Muffin Tops

You are going to die when you try these Paleo Spice Muffin Tops.  You know you just eat the top of the muffin anyways, just like I do, because it’s the best.  I don’t know why, though, probably because there is just something really moist and yummy about the top.  I guess it doesn’t have the crusty burning edges from the pan, who knows.  But, I do know the tops are the best!  These muffin tops are even better because they are kind of a cross between a soft cookie and the best part of a muffin…the top!  What more can you ask for?!  I can’t think of anything!  Well, maybe a cup of coffee!
