And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Fresh Baked and Freshly Brewed

Good Morning! I hope you have all had a lovely day so far. We are just days away from the weekend! WOOT!!! Hannah has a dance competition early (we have to be there at 7) on Mothers Day. I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to watch my beautiful daughter dance.

I actually spend this week baking and cooking and ENJOYED it for a change. I baked some delicious egg, milk and nut free blueberry (and chocolate chip for myson) muffins and banana bread. My hubby, who is trying to lose weight asked me if I was trying to kill him, the house smelled SOOO GOOD!!! I took some of the leftover thawed blueberries in their juice added sugar and let it sit to make a syrup. A warm muffin, milk free butter, and a drizzle of the blueberries in syrup with fresh coffee.... YUMMO!

My mama has been over some helping me in the garden. I have no idea what I am doing and she comes over to transplant and do things I would not think of. (and leaves covered in sweat and leaves me covered in guilt) We have tomatoes, grape tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, peppers, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, horseradish, okra, rhubarb, spinach, lettuce, MINT THAT HAS TAKEN OVER THE GARDEN AND YARD OVER THE YEARS!!! :D It looks good, I am excited about this year. I love the smell of the tomato plants and dirt :D. Yes, mama, you are getting me hooked.
