“Show courage.  People need to see what it looks like.  Show it.  Then feel it.” – Beth Moore

“Stay alert, stand firm…show courage, be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NET)

I need to be more aware of this.  I don’t think that I have courage in most situations, but looking back on an event in my life, I most certainly did.  Can I see if I showed courage? Not really.  Did others see it in me?  I hope so.  I pray so.

I want to show love and kindness on a daily basis.  That is my goal.  No matter the situation, I want someone to say that I have been kind and shown love—that His light shines through me.

Blessings and love.

Road

dolly quote

I know that I have posted this before…but I needed it again.  Discovering the roads that you want to walk down are the hardest.  Paving one should be easier right since it is your path.

Choices…not just the right way or the wrong way…but every decision begins with a step–down a path—but, is it the path you want to be on is the question.

Blessings.

Friday

Fridays are typically days for relaxation and reflection….this quote makes me think of something more for a Monday motivation.

So, are you curious for new paths?  Seeking new things?  Trying anything new?  Scared?  Sounds good to me! Ha!

Happy Friday…blessings.

Kale Chips

When Carmen was home last week for Christmas, she brought with her a bag of chopped kale.  She forgot it, and I decided to make some kale chips with it.

I went through the bag (sorted, washed and dried).  Place the kale in the bowl.The secret to baking these chips is using the olive oil sparingly.  Placing about a tablespoon of olive oil in the bowl, then rubbing the leaves with the oil.  You won’t use a lot of oil this way, and each leaf will be thoroughly coated.Place on a baking sheet, bake at 275 degrees for about 15-18 minutes. Some pieces may need longer cooking times, turn those and keep checking on them. These can burn rapidly.

Place the chips in a paper towel and salt immediately.

Store these in a Tupperware or zip lock bag.

I like these. I like the feeling of healthy snacking.  Trying something new…

Blessings!

Sunday Thoughts

This was being shared on Facebook, so I decided to share it as well.

Some comments that have been made are:

We are all sinners.

This is so true.

Showing love to all is difficult especially if you have been hurt or wronged by someone.

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”  The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no commandment greater than these.”  -Mark 12:29-31

Blessings.
