"As you go through this day, look for tiny treasures strategically placed along the way. I lovingly go before you and plant little pleasures to brighten your day. Look carefully for them, and pluck them one by one. When you reach the end of the day, you will have gathered a lovely bouquet. Offer it up to Me with a grateful heart. Receive My Peace as you lie down to sleep, with thankful thoughts playing a lullaby in your mind." Jesus Calling

Layton and I love Gingerbread... this recipe is so good and it makes your house smell wonderful!
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup molasses
2 T vinegar
5 Cups Flour
1 1/2 t soda
1/2 t salt
2 1/2 t ginger
1 t cinnamon
1 t cloves
Cream shortening with sugar. Add egg, molasses and vinegar. Beat well. Add dry ingredients. Mix well. Chill 3 hours. Roll out on lightly floured board and cut with your favorite gingerbread boy. Place on greased cookie sheet, or use parchment paper. Bake at 375 for 5-6 minutes. Cool lightly and remove to a rack and cool. Decorate with confectioners icing! Note: I mix confectioners sugar with a little bit of water, you want it thick, put in a ziploc bag and cut a very small hole in the bottom corner of the bag!
So, Layton was wild, I told him, just go jump in the pool... I didn't ever imagine he would... And he did! Ice cold water... And he played in it for at least 30 minutes! First polar bear swim this year!!!

I am so blessed to be able to have a successful real estate business along with the experience of being the 2013 President of the Greater Tyler Association of Realtors. I can't even put in words everything I have learned over the last 5 years about our local, state and national associations. There is more than meets the eye, for sure! I am blessed to have Realtors around me serving our association that really care. This year has flown by, no pun intended!

Whew, read this one! Simple stuff but we always try to do things on our own!
Quietness and trust... Strength .
"This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.”
