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!

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🙂

Which has come in handy at times, well a lot of times, because for instance, instead of taking my car to the mechanic (which I dread so much), he wanted the challenge of fixing it himself.  Me, being the wise, trusting sister that I am, let him do it.  Sometimes he failed, but most times he succeeded!   Continue reading →
