    Four Quick and HEALTHY Breakfast Ideas

    Welcome back into my kitchen, where we discuss Restoring Your Temple.  God’s Temple in you.  Then God said, ‘Look!  I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food.’  (Genesis 1:29) Last Saturday when we covered how to Boost Your Healthy Tea Time, I promised to continue by reviewing healthy breakfast ideas.  These are some of my regulars (and I’ll share others in the future individually).  These today are my faves because you can largely prepare them in advance for grab and go breakfasts later.  Don’t we all like to make mornings easier?  A little planning ahead pays off big time! To…

  • Health Limits Us

    How Anything But Optimal Health Limits Us In All Seasons

    Neighbors, Welcome Into My Kitchen! Excuse me while I freshen things for company.  I have my face on this morning, so no more Instagram pictures  like I shared last weekend, surrounded by Christmas clutter sans make-up.  (Horrors!  And, please follow me.)  Dusting my hands off now with Christmas decor all boxed up (woohoo!).  All I lack now is bribing hubs to pack away the Christmas Tree of Hope. A question for you:  As you look back at the long line of hills and valleys of your life, through hard seasons and celebratory times, can you agree that you needed God’s strength most of all and also good health?  As Christians,…

  • How To BE Without BEing Stressed!

    I’m afraid that I may have left you with the wrong impression in my last post (TO BE or NOT TO BE in 2019).  Did you take it that I said you should BE something spectacular?  To pile onto your already-filled-plate to BE more?  To BE better?  Maybe even to outBE others?  What pressure! Part of BEing who God wants us to BE is BEing at rest in Him. BEing at peace.  BEing content to simply BE who He calls us to BE. Yesterday This morning in my happy place (where it’s just God and me, alone without distraction), I was reading the passages and questions from a 50-day personal…

    TO BE or NOT TO BE in 2019

    Happy New Year!  It felt good to flip over my calendar this morning to a fresh new day, new month, and brand new year.  I hope you enjoyed your holidays (holy days) with family and friends.  I so enjoyed the chats with you on my Tree of Hope  post.  You continue to bless me with your sweet, supportive comments, prayers, and encouragements. I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, but I continually ponder and pray about what God has for me next.  How about you? Surely you know that you are gifted with many talents.  Even if you think you lack talent for anything much, God equipped you with specific…

  • Autumn of Life

    Your Autumn Season of Life

    Isn’t it fun to peruse old journals and find nice surprises?  I recently found something I’d written (and long forgotten) years ago – before my blogging days began.  My mood seemed a little sad as I wrote of things I could no longer accomplish – a time for reflection and a turning of the page, so to speak.  Wow!  I was still healthy then and really could do most everything.  As we southerners say, I didn’t know nothing yet! At that time, I was just entering the season of empty nesting, along with my fall season of life – not to mention being in the throws of full-on mental pause. …

  • Turmeric Latte

    Turmeric Spice Latte

    Many of you asked for this recipe, and I’m so excited to share it with you!  I crave this latte every day, and it might have something to do with our finally-cool fall season here in North Mississippi.  Ahhhhh, the warm flavors of fall! This recipe comes with a WARNING.  It’s not only addictive for me but for others, as well.  I made this recipe yesterday morning and split it with my mom (her first time).  She delayed lunch beyond her normal time because she wasn’t hungry as early as usual.  Last night, Mom said she had craved another latte all day.  So, beware.  😉 We’ll get to the recipe,…
