    Monday morning is wrapping the ordinary in the most brilliant display of rising colour, and I am humbled by the miracles I so generously get to experience. God's generous gifts are so often in the most common awe striking beauty. I wait in these moments and can always feel the breath of God sweeping through my spirit.

    ~Never more then when I feel the first roll and kick ~

    ~ Life coming anew ~

    ~God stitching another master piece tight into my heart. ~

    I wait in eager ~ patients ~ to greet my December baby!

    ~A Mother is the only person on earth who can divide her love among all her children and each child still have all her love. Anon~

    ~ I have welcomed the weekend with raw ice cream and enjoying every moment of its delicious goodness ~

    Easy Ice Cream
    1 c. cashew nuts
    1 ½ c. water
    Blend until creamy then strain through a nut-milk bag or cheesecloth. Pour ingredients back into the blender.
    Then add.
    1/3 c. agave nectar
    ¼ tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Vanilla
    1-2 Tbsp. coconut oil
    ½ -1 c. strawberry (or any other berry or fruit)

    Trust me when I say you will not be able to keep your hands (or lips) off!

    {I am sorry for my summer-skipping of this blog... It takes some time to settle into a family schedual again and getting ajusted to life as a family on Canadian soil. Along with all the adjusting we are now offically repatriating which brings stacks of paper work and running around, car shopping, doctore and various other appontments and then some more offical buisness of yet more paper work! I do appreciate each of you and your sweet coments and email here and there through out your busy summer. And please visit often next week I have faith life will be more settled affording me the time and gumption to share a few specials of my life.}
