Chocolate Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa Recipe

                                                 Anyone who knows me can testify to that!
 Even as a small child I would eat it straight from the jar...back in the day when the jars were glass. So of course it would only be natural to incorporate peanut butter into another favorite...HOT CHOCOLATE!
Combining the winning flavors of chocolate & peanut butter into tasty delights is nothing new, but to turn it into a warm soothing drink form is revolutionary. Go ahead & treat yourself with this delisciously sweet creamy delight!  


     1 C. Milk
        1/2 C. Heavy Cream
               1 Tablespoon Creamy Peanut Butter
               1/2 C. Milk Chocolate Chips
Directions: In a small sauce pan combine milk & cream. Heat on low until steam appears. Add chocolate pieces & whisk until melted than add peanut butter & whisk until smooth & creamy. Pour into mug & top with miniature marshmallows, chocolate chips & salted peanuts. ENJOY!

"What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again;  there is nothing new under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Bible Study Book of Ephesians

Tonight I will be heading a Bible study on the book of Ephesians. Just a few friends gathered together to dig into the rich Word of God. We are having a "girls night"! It's cold & snowy outside so there's no better way to warm up than with good friendship, a few laughs, snacking on sweets & sipping hot chocolate but most of all  feeding on the good Word! 

"Praise be to the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ." (Ephesians 1:3)

Thou will keep him in perfect peace Isaiah 26:3

            Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee. Isaiah 26:3

Beloved, I Wish Above All Things

I took this picture of a "weed" & added Scripture to it and made it into a thing of beauty. Just as the Lord takes our weeds & makes them into something beautiful  & meaningful. Don't neglect the gift God has given you, use it today to bless someone.

"TIPSY" Tuesday Getting Organized & Keeping It That Way

One of the biggest solutions to getting organized & keeping it that way is....EVERYTHING IN IT'S PLACE & A PLACE FOR EVERYHING.
If you do not have adequate storage space, creating one is essential. Using clear storage boxes (dollar stores are a great place to purchase them), baskets or boxes to keep items separated. It makes it much easier to find what you need when you need it. A wonderful place for storing items is also under your sofa, bed or other furniture. Purchase the long storage box with smaller container to arrange inside. Keep it neat & sweet! Have a blessed day!
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting. James 1:17
