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!

Chocolately Chocolate Brownies

Do you ever just feel rejected from everything?  It might be from people around you, whether that be family, friends or someone you just met….maybe you feel rejected by your body and all the regimens and ‘right things’ you keep trying to do to feel better and heal!  It’s like whatever you say, think, feel, do, dream, try doesn’t feel good enough!  Let me tell you right here and now, “God is always at work.  He is a present, loving Father, aware of our deepest hurts and our even deeper needs”*.  I’m telling myself this, too, trust me, because I’m struggling with ALL of the above right now! Instead of wallowing in stinky thoughts of rejection call a friend and call Summie’s Yummies Sweet Deliveries to bake and deliver you something special such as warm, comforting and gooey Chocolately Chocolate Brownies, yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Moist Punkin Bread or another sweet delight that are always gluten free, organic and yummy!  Bringing you sweetness to the soul and healing to the bones.

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!’

Cheering Together!

If you’re like me, you are super excited that it is football season!

It’s such a fun time and great excuse to get together with friends – dressing in your team colors (the beautiful Garnet and Gold) and cheering on your  favorite team (Go NOLES!!).  It’s even fun to have that occasional rivalry with someone, too!  Keeps it interesting, hopefully your team comes out on top, though!

You can watch it alone, sure, but when the players make a good play, catch an awesome throw, run over the line for a touchdown and thread the football through the two goal posts, don’t you want to get up and high five someone next to you, look at them and scream in excitement ‘Aaaahhh, did you just see that, Aaaah’?  Hearing the roar of excitement of friends and people around you is so invigorating, isn’t it?  We long for that community and people to share life with.
