From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

Doesn't it put a bounce in your step? The clouds have moved apart to reveal the sun.
It's warm on your skin. You could just bask in it. And you do.
I feel like a sunflower at times that turns a yellow head to face the sun. I just want that warmth to refresh me. It's been so long.
Do you ever feel that way in life? The warm Spring sun reminds me of God's goodness. Of how he cares about me. Really cares about me and you!
I was given a devotional book recently called, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. Have you seen it? I'm hearing wonderful things from people of how they have been refreshed by the energizing words that the author speaks. She uses Bible verses to speak hope and joy and peace.
Listen to this: " I love you regardless of how well you are performing.Sometimes you feel uneasy, wondering if you are doing enough to be worthy of my love. No matter how exemplary your behavior, the answer to that question will always be no. Your performance and My love are totally different issues ... I love you with an everlasting love that flows out from eternity without limits or conditions."  As you can tell the author writes as if Jesus Himself is spaking directly to you. She ends each mini lesson with scripture verses that you can look up.
 I encourage you to get a copy! It will warm your soul like the sun on a fresh, Spring day.

I had to share my birthday cake with you. I wish you were right hear to have a piece. My sweet man made this zebra cake for me. Isn't he sweet!

Take care my friends!

Happy Spring, dear friends!

I wanted to share with you this warm and yummy dish I made tonight. It's one of those MEAT AND POTATOES meals that (all the) men I know want their wives to make. Trust me, ladies! This one is a keeper! Your guys will love you for it!
Now, I had to keep the cheese part of the meal a secret until after my man ate his fair share. Why? He is not a fan of swiss cheese. I never thought I was either.
But this ham and potato casserole changed all that!
Even my youngest daughter assured us repeatedly (when she saw it) that she didn't like it. (she had it once before) But somehow magically, she devoured not one, but two portions!
It's that good folks! When the kids and the husband like it, in my book, that's a keeper!!
So if you want this recipe, leave me a comment. I'll be sure to get it to you!

Enjoy your week!
