something to read ... to ponder

Paint the Light
"In these dark days, we desperately need Christian artists who will love God with all their hearts, minds, souls, and strength, and who will pour that love into unique creative expressions of truth that have the power to bridge into the souls of others. ...
It is such a dark, dark world. Is there light in you? Then hear my call to you, and to all in whom truth is burning.
Oh Christian, please paint the light!"

mmm ... muffins

This afternoon, because John will be home alone this weekend and I will be flying in airplanes that no longer provide filling "snacks", I made carrot muffins. Actually it was a carrot cake recipe that I adapted.
I baked them for about 15 minutes a pan, and they turned out great - still moist, but not too moist. Just perfect for a little bit of butter.
I was going to use whole wheat flour to make them a little more nutritious, but I forgot (forgetting is getting more frequent - related to being pregnant maybe?). I did remember to add about 3/4 cup of raisins and 1/2 cup of pecans, though. Yummy additions!
The muffins are already disappearing. I had not realized what a great snack they are!

these are days to remember

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.

Recently my days have been full of ...... rest. At the ends of them I feel so unaccomplished, so lazy, idle and behind. But at the end of each one my dear and encouraging husband reminds me that I have been busy - God and I have been making a baby. It is far more important that anything else I could be doing!
