Obedience is so hard and painful sometimes. If I didn’t believe so
strongly in wanting God’s best for me, it would be so easy to settle
for “really amazing” and be content…but not quite.
I’m still needing to find a Christmas gift for one of my uncle’s. Does anyone have any clever ideas?
In other past news, here is a visual sampling of the Christmas goodies
I baked and prepared over the past few weeks. These made their way to
be eaten during our church Christmas dinner last Sunday.
Thankfully, my containers of fudge, lemon & sugar cookies, Oreo
bonbons, and almond bark treats have greatly diminished due to giving
away as gifts to friends. The other dish is Broken Glass Salad, made
by my grandma around the holidays for as long as I can remember. A
simple combination of homemade whipped cream, various flavors of Jello,
and pecans to decorate the top makes for a tasty treat! While my first
attempt at this family favorite didn’t turn out as pretty as I had
hoped, it still tasted like it should. (I’ll have to keep working on
the presentation part.)
