Little Ones

Precious, no doubt, are these little ones in your eyes;
 but if you love them, think often of their souls.
No, interest should weigh with you so much as their eternal interests.  No part of them should be so dear to you as that part which will never die. -Selected  

Two Tips to Help Speed Work in the Kitchen

#1 To chop an apple very quickly, first turn the apple stem side down. With a large knife make four cuts around the core as shown. You will end up with six apple slices and the core. 

#2 When you have a lot of small children like we do this tip comes in handy! To quickly cut up waffles, pancakes or French toast use your pizza cutter! It's very fast and easy! 

These are just two kitchen tips I've used recently that have helped me out. :)

Hot Soup on a Winter Night

On a freezing cold winter night, a bowl of hot chicken noodle soup, along with some buttered bread is  perfect! :) 

 I didn't use a recipe this time, but that's the beauty of soups you can use what you have on hand. :) Tonight I decided to first sauté and onion then add in the chicken along with a few of my favourite herbs: rosemary, oregano, and basil and also some garlic powder.  Then I added in some cubes of mozzarella, chicken broth and bow tie pasta. 

Sprinkled with a little Parmesan it was yummy. :) At least the children's response told me so, they were asking for seconds and Luke (almost two) had three bowls! Lol :)

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

So thankful for my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! 

 "But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen."

Praise the Name of the Lord

“Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children: Let them praise the name of the LORD: for His name alone is excellent; His glory is above the earth and heaven.” 

Psalm 148:12-13
