I don’t know about you, but when a trial comes into my life, my first words are not usually, Thank You, God. How do you want to use this in my life? In fact, you’ll probably hear some groaning and complaining. Rather than looking for what God is doing in the midst of it, often I’m looking for the way out.

So, I wonder, would you say you have Great Expectations? If not great- how about just expectations?   I think we all have expectation about lots of things- don’t we?  We expect things to go a certain way, we expect things from people, from ourselves….. from God.

Would you say you have great expectation of our God? Do you expect good, even great things from our God who promises us not only good, but abundant living.

My mom was visiting and thumbing through some magazines including Every Day with Rachael Ray and found a recipe for Frito Frittata.  She showed me the yummy picture and it reminded me how much I like egg dishes like quiche and frittata.  This recipe called for Frito’s corn chips (chopped up and put on top) and diced ham.

E is for Extend Grace

To finish up my series on Choosing to Rise, I will end with a simple thought.  Simple to think, perhaps not as simple to do, but isn’t that just the way of life?

In order to rise above hard, difficult, even agonizing circumstances understanding the amazing concept of Grace and being able to extend that God-given Grace is vital.

S is for Stay in the Present

(Part 4 )

Stay in the Present by listing his Presents 

Counting your blessings is nothing new.  And yet there is still much written and said about the truth that being thankful helps bring peace of mind.

A beautifully written book on this subject is Ann Voskamp’s , One Thousand Gifts where she shares her quest to discover a way of living life fully alive in the present and experiencing the constant presence of God.

Growing up my mom used to make a creamy pink chilled soup called Borscht.  If I remember correctly her German grandmother used to make it for her.

Guest Post Series

(Part Three)

The following post is part of a series that details the beginning of my journey becoming a PREVIVOR of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. I carry a DNA mutation, but I do not believe this was a mistake. I believe that God created me with purpose in each detail of my being. In this, and those that follow in the series, I want to share my experience, and how He used what could have been a devastating situation, into the start of something beautiful, something that changed me forever.

I’ve had a plan.

My idea- my determination- on how things will go.

Two years from the last occurrence of my breast cancer and two years since having a “clear” PET Scan, I determined that would be the time I would  have another PET Scan.  Blessed by wonderful medical insurance coverage, I could have had a scan 6 months post having my lymph nodes under my right arm along with any remaining cancer removed.

To check to see. . .   And again in another 6 months, or a year ago, I could have checked then to see if I was still “clear”.

On this July 4, I thought I would share a “Freedom Story.”

When I was a little girl I use to go in the backyard on our swing set and I would  get on the swing and I would go as high as I could.  I would pump and pump my little legs singing my own songs to God, “I love you God” –just whatever came to my mind.  I thought if I got high enough that I could touch God.  And I thought if I sang loud enough then he could hear me. And So I would find myself on that swing quite a lot swinging as high as I could and singing at the top of my lungs to him.

Healthy Soup Recipe by New Nostalgia

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Here it is the last day of the month and I haven’t posted a Healthy Soup recipe yet for June.  Honestly I’ve been traveling quite a bit with my husband this summer which has us eating out more and making less dinners.  Also, I’m not much of a “chilled soup” person, so I don’t make a lot of soup during the summer.  Still a healthy soup recipe is needed, so I took to the pages and pages of recipes on my awesome and ever-talented friend and blogger mentor- Amy of New Nostalgia. I found a post of her’s for this super easy and healthy black bean soup recipe that she loves from her favorite cookbook, The Happy Herbivore.
