Speaking of thanking Jesus, today we have a special ‘thank you’ to our Creator and Almighty God – my best friend, Ashley, and her husband John, welcomed their daughter into the world yesterday afternoon – Willa Drew! Congratulations Mommy & Daddy! Between Willa and our niece, Eden, who is only one month older, we have been seriously blessed in the past two months with precious new life!
Thank You, Jesus!
I spoke with a woman the other day who asked if when we, “gave up on God giving us children naturally” we thought we “might consider adoption”…
While Craig and I would love to adopt a child or preferably children, doing so wouldn’t be about our giving up on God or lacking faith in His timing. There are so very many children who need a good and loving home, and two parents who want nothing more than to care for them…why would we consider that ‘alternative’ as Plan B? Frankly, our only hold-up to adoption is cost!
But really, comments like these always make me think…Where has people’s faith gone? When did the God of the Miraculous become the God of limited power?
Psalm 113:9 says, “He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. Praise the LORD!”
Why do we limit our Lord? Miracles happen every single day, and all of them are God-given.
Remember the God we serve. Faith in Him is an incredible thing.
See? I told you we would return! My my my, this move to Maine has been DRAINING!!! Wonderful – but DRAINING!! As a matter of fact, I’m still in need of volunteers to help organize and unpack…Any takers?
More about our lives as Maine-iacs on Wednesday, but today, let’s get down to the nitty gritty – The CORE of today’s blog, so to speak…Today, it’s all about JUICING! (Anyone catch the food/texture humor?? 🙂 ) Catch the video below for our take on juicing, and why we love it so much:
Grandma & Mama Dee – If you’re watching, just click the title of the blog in your e-mail (at the top, where it says “Juicy!”), and you’ll be re-directed to the video! If you have any questions, call me and I’ll walk you through it! 🙂
Here’s the ingredient list for my juice, in case you missed it:
Pier’s Groovy Green Juice
- 2 small yellow apples
- 1 bunch fresh kale
- Several ‘stalks’ of broccoleaf
- About 1 inch of fresh ginger root
- 5 small radishes
- Fresh mint, to taste
- 1 scoop chia seed
- 1 green bell pepper
Seriously. This may sound off-putting, but this juice is EASY to drink and delicious!! The amount above easily makes 2 juice servings – one for now and one to replace your next meal!
