The Simple Woman's Kitchen and Garden for September 2012

     I have done The Simple Woman's Daybook off and on for awhile now.  This month she started a couple of new things.  One of them is called The Simple Woman's Kitchen and Garden.  You can share recipes,the way you decorate your kitchen, pictures or ideas for gardens etc.  

     I had to go to a meeting recently and had to carry a vegetable but it also had to contain apples.  I looked and looked and finally decided to cook this recipe and let me tell you I will be cooking it again as it was really good.  It is a wonderful fall recipe to I am sharing it with ya'll-hope you like it too.....

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
