Words to Live by

1st Peter 5:7  
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
This lovely teapot candle holder was in the wonderful tearoom that I visited with my mum  last weekend

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Did you know that clocks were invented by monks who wanted to make sure they stopped at specific times of the day and night to pray? It is a little funny to think that an invention designed to help us make time to pray often keeps us from praying at all.  If we could reestablish a natural rhythm of prayer throughout the day, it would be as common and as life sustaining as the heartbeat within our chest.
Starting right now, make your goal to pray seven times a day; the moment you wake (praise); in the bath/shower (repentance of sin); morning break (gratitude for God's goodness); grace before each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner); and at bedtime (a blessing for others). As we incorporate prayer and praise into our days, we will begin to see God at work in our lives.

Today is my husband's 44th Birthday and he picked the recipe for our Tuesday Night Dinner across the miles dish tonight.
(Tuesday Night dinners started some time back with my friend Jolie who now lives in NC, we use to cook together once a week when she lived here in Florida, that Jolie is in NC we decided to continue the tradition but with a twist, we still cook together but now we post our dinners and recipes on our blogs)  Dinner was great! I have not made this recipe is such a long time, it is a recipe that my mom use to make and it was a family hit, now.. it is a bit higher in calories then what we usually cook but since my husband picked it for his Birthday dish it was a must and it really was a nice treat :)  My husband received fruit flowers from his mom today so I used some of the fruit on top of our salad as a side dish with our dinner and it was lovely and yummy.  Happy Birthday Honey!  
Jolie made her dish from the clean eating recipe she found for the same dish, you can click here to see her lovely dinner.
