Gold is very beautiful! God obviously thinks so as well, because his home (heaven) has streets that are lined with it. In Revelation 21:21 it says, The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
An offering in righteousness.

Well it seems like forever. And today I thought wow I might as well delete my blog I never write here anymore! But today I realized I need to write about all my vegan baking adventures!! My sweet baby girl is allergic to several things- milk, eggs, peanuts, tomatoes, soy, pineapples, cashews, and chicken... She is 13 months and baby food no longer fills her up. So I have been on an mission to figure out what to bake for my sweet little angel. Along the way I have had a lot of fun, and she seems to enjoy everything I have made so far:
- 2 tbsp oil
- 4 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 scant teaspoon salt
- 1/2 scant cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 4 tbsp vanilla rice milk
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1) Preheat oven to 350°F.
- 2) Line muffin cups with paper liners or spray with nonstick spray.
- 3) Mix all ingredients together until moistened.
- 4) Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Each should be filled 3/4 full.
- 5) Bake 15-20 minutes or until the tops are firm.
- 6) Cool on a wire rack
Makes 6 muffins

I am sad. Sometimes I try to anticipate goodbye as if that will make it better. Maybe it wont hurt as bad if I try to make myself accustomed to life without you. Live with you further on the edge than closer to the middle.I wish I could close my eyes so I'd never see you leave. Maybe hold them shut to hold you there longer. The sound of your voice. The smell of your shirt. The warmth of your genuine smile. A sincere laugh. A fraction of the things I know I will miss. Trying to store you more indelibly on my heart. I love you. I always have and I forever will. Through our memories we will never say goodbye.

I’ve seen You in a thousand starry night skies
A portrait of all that is true, lovely, and pure
Shining through a million faces
A hint of the image.. that is You
Illuminating rays of sunshine
My blind eyes
Revel in the Divine
Focused on the blue skies above
Bid my mind dwell in the limelight of LOVE
To large to fit in my view
O Lord my God
With my heart I stand in awe of You

I was listening to the radio last night and apparently most new year's resolutions last until about mid January (especially those regarding dieting). I immediately began to think about my 2010 resolutions. I couldn't remember so I looked at the "2010 New Year's Post"
I didn't really have any!! I just reflected on the goodness of GOD and realized how much I have been blessed! I have decided that resolutions are a good way to plan ahead but as my mom and I were discussing its best to actually surrender your life to Jesus everyday and each moment ask Him "How can I best serve You". By doing this you can be sure that you will move forward into the person that God would have you be.
I just Praise Him for his Unfailing Love and I know that in 2011 I will continue to get closer to my Savior.
MY BIGGEST BLESSING from 2010 is the Addition of
My beautiful daughter Gabby!!
So as we look to make it through 2011 I do believe that it is very important to remember that God truly does have plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. The text that has really stood out to me as an encouragement for this new year is 2 Chronicles 16:9
"For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him."
This year my prayer is for God to grant me Grace through His Holy Spirit and Faith in Jesus to live the following :
