Chewy has decided he (and Ebony) like the spaces my office provides. They can be found resting in my comfy reading chair, bathing on my desk chair, sitting in the window, and demanding my attention when I’m trying to work. (Sandpaper kisses always work!)
I tried a super simple recipe for a gathering we were having with friends. I thought, no one has said they will bring dessert so I better come up with something. Usually, Ray doesn’t like me to experiment in the food area when we have guests. He had to agree, this was worth it. All it lacked was a scoop of ice cream. You can use any kind of fresh or frozen fruit with this.
Blueberry Cookie Casserole Yummmmmmmmm!
4 cups blueberries, rinsed and tossed in 1/4 cup sugar. Put this into your sprayed, slow cooker. Open a package of Sugar Cookie Mix and sprinkle the whole thing on top of the fruit. Slice 1 stick of butter and dot the top. Put the lid on and cook for 2 1/2 hours on High.
Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect. Romans 12:2 ERV
As I pondered these words I realized I was doing just that, letting those around me affect my thoughts. I love my cats and there are many who don’t understand why. They give me great joy and happiness as I watch them play and live life exactly as a cat should. I also love to eat and although I currently watch my diet very carefully, eating only foods that have no sugar or wheat, I do not let that stop me from enjoying my food. (Yes, I know the above recipe doesn’t reflect that because it is from several years ago, but it’s still a good recipe.)
God does not want us to base our lives on what others think or what we think they think. He wants us to enjoy the life He’s given us.
Blessings and success to you and yours!
