Puffins, anyone???

I've been hard at work in my new kitchen (my grandpa built it for me) perfecting my "puffin" recipe. My mom makes me take a break every once in a while to make her a grande latte w/ sugar & whip in my new coffee machine, but other than that, this masterpiece consumes me...how do I make them fluffier, how do I make the fruit I use in them taste sweeter, how long do I cook them to make them that perfect golden brown?? I must get back to my creation...

Oh, and here's my cooking tip of the day...

"Add autumn snap to oatmeal by infusing it with the flavors of fall. Cook cereal with a dollop of apple butter and a dash of cinnamon. Garnish each helping with currants, sautéed apples, and a drizzle of hot maple syrup and milk or cream." (Okay, I got that from Martha).

my first profound revelation...

So I learned my first scripture verse in my 2 year old's class..."Nothing can seperate us from God's love." Romans 8:39 Many people are merely amused as I parrot this verse over and over, but people, please listen to what I am saying..."NOTHING can seperate US (me AND you) from God's love!" Do you realize what this means? GOD IS FOR US:) I know there are so many things these days seeming to be against us, like the things Paul mentions earlier in this passage...tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, sword..I don't really know what all of those are yet but I know they are BAD. So thank goodness God is so big and so strong..and He is for US. I'm really not that anxious about all the bad things , because now I know NOTHING can come between me God...I hope you are not anxious either.

Matthew Henry comments on Romans 8 by saying, "God having manifested his love in giving his own Son for us, can we think that any thing should turn aside or do away that love?" That's a pretty neat promise:)
