Fall Deco & Fall Recipes

So you know how much I love Fall....{Squeal! Squeal!} if you couldnt tell already. This past weekend we put up our fall deco, I was blessed to have my mother-in-law help me. She is so creative when it comes to making something from nothing. I love buying the stuff and trying to put it together, but she just has this gift, and eye for making things work.

Here's what we did together, it was a fun great bonding moment. My little one also made all kinds of wall decorations, I'll post those soon. This is just a few of the pics to give you a glimpse of what we were able to do. It was such a blessing and it really sets the mood for making our home a haven. Really missing the 'Women Living Well' - Making Your Home a Haven series this year {hint, hint Courtney...LOL}.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

{Totally Easy, why pay all that money when you can save a ton and make it for others and yourself for a fraction of the cost}

• 1/2 cup water
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/8 teaspoon ginger
• 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• 1/16 teaspoon nutmeg
• Espresso or coffee
• Cream or milk

1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil, reduce heat and add sugar. Stir until it is dissolved. Add in remaining ingredients and continue to heat the mixture for a few minutes until everything has had a chance to combine. Try not to let the mixture come to a boil.
2. Strain the mixture through a coffee filter.
3. To make a latte, add 3 tablespoons of the syrup to 2 shots of espresso and steamed milk. You can also add it to coffee

A friend blessed me with this receipe a couple years back and I've used it every year since then, during the fall season. It's great for fall gatherings, so excited for those. But, I can not find my recipe, thankfullly My Blessed Life has it so go here for the recipe. It is divine, I'm serious, better than pumpkin pie.

These two recipes compliment each other very well,  great for gatherings/fellowships. I can't wait to break out the boots, sweaters, scarfs, and hot yummy coffee/tea drinks and this yummy dessert. We'll be celebrating this weekend, first day of Fall on the 22nd, this Saturday! What's your favorite recipe during the fall?

Fall Blessings,

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to http://www.calvarychapel.com/?show=Churches and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
