Integrity Has Its Rewards

Over coffee …. Week 47 This Thanksgiving weekend I will be brief and single-minded, not always easy for a mind that seems to race!  Recently I was reading through the “Kings” and was struck by this verse: “And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy...

Pumpkin Pie Spice in a Flash!

Good day Ladies! Seems this time of year I use Pumpkin Pie Spice in many recipes, chutneys, lattes, cookies, cheesecake, muffins and of course, Pie! A small bottle can be ridiculously high, especially when we have the ingredients on our shelves. Here is my blend:...

The Power of Thankfulness over Negativity

Week 46 I begin with a prayer: “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in...

Week 45 Think of a person or family that is not struggling today. Can you? I don’t think I know anyone that is not close to a struggle. I can give you a dozen Bible verses to encourage you, and here are a few of my favourites to help me begin thinking right. Thinking...
