Strawberry Shortcake, Anyone?

The Joys of This Season
Strawberry Shortcake, Anyone?

I don't know about you, but every time the season changes, I think....."now, This is My FAVORITE season! God is so good to change the times and the seasons; it displays His infinite wisdom and grandeur and the fact that He delights in all the creativity we see and so much more.

But there is just something about summer. I get fresh and new, invigorating energy when the sun is shining in it's strength. God made all creatures to respond to the Light that He gave us! He gave all living things seed to reproduce, and that seed is in us. The light generates all things to flower and then fruit.

Here in Texas, we have had strawberries, and we have had peaches, and now we are enjoying the abundance of blueberries. This is a delightful time to go outside and enjoy all that God has created for us to enjoy. It brings Him pleasure, and it will delight you as well.

My favorite thing to do is to get up while the dew is still on the ground and sparkling like diamonds in the newly rising sun. Drink a Gigantic Cup of Hot Steaming Coffee, and listen to the myriad of birds that inhabit this glorious territory. Each morning they sing for joy to God their Creator. To hear them sends thrills of joy to the core of my being. The sense of peace that settles over my soul at this point rivals none.

Then in the evening, the same thing. To watch and savor, from my 12 x40 porch the splendours of God's creation and to enjoy from my vantage point, just sitting....a savoring....and listening...and contemplating.....

I am so happy to have my beautiful daughter Casey (who I affectionately dub "kitten") (me, being katw0man, you know) I am so happy to have her at home. She has been so helpful to me and I have enjoyed a slower pace.

We have been enjoying our little puppies and we take them swimming with us too and they like that!

This week I am very busy getting ready for a Big Party...and I have 6 days to get ready.

I just wanted to update all of you and remind you to savor this season in the Son and enjoy all the fruits of your labor and His in providing it for you to enjoy!

Grace and Peace to you!

Love the shortcake!!!
I got your msg on my blog (I have an email link at the bottom LHS of my blog if you want to contact me that way!)... I haven't tried either of the cube scrubs I told you about, but a friend tried the MP one I think and said it was spongy? Not too sure what that means, I'd try a small quantity first I think. LKM how you go. They are on my "to try" list!!

Your Strawberry Shortcake soap turned out wonderful.

I'm totally going to tackle the cube scrubs one of these days too. I've got the solid scrub thing down but haven't gotten the MP part incorporated. That's next.

Can't wait to see your take on them Anne-Marie!!
And can't wait to see how you go Kelly!!! PLS keep me posted too :)

Thank you, France and Thank you Ann-Marie!

Do you not agree that naiad's cubes are so beautiful?

I salivate when I see them.

I tried the sugar too in M&P several months ago. I used a scrub mixture I already had.

The results were too deplorable for even me to keep to use myself.
So I threw the small batch away.

Thank you for taking the time to help us!

And now, I am in panic much to do in 4 days remaining.
