Living the adventure

Have you ever known that God would provide something for you, but you weren’t sure of the details? How would He do it? When? How much were you supposed to do to help things move along? Did He just want you to wait? Details, details.

After a walk through the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., I am even more convinced that God is into the details of our lives. I saw minerals that boasted an array of spectacular colors—rose pink, turquoise, deep royal blue, transparent yellow. I held curious butterflies and was mesmerized by their fragile, spotted wings. I walked through halls displaying skeletons of numerous animals, showing God’s handiwork in piecing together living beings, giving them flexibility where they needed it and rigidity as well.

Details. God loves details.

Katy here. Today I have the privilege of sharing with you an award-winning poem and the story behind it. Can you relate to the poem below? May your heart be blessed and your dreams renewed.

The Girl with Hazel Eyes

by Beckie Lindsey

Where has she gone? That young girl from so long ago.
The memory eludes me like a cloud covering over the sun.
She had dark hair and large hazel eyes. 
Those eyes that saw the world as an adventure to be had.
A world that is exciting yet dangerously uncertain,
But — with courage — could be contained.

   Katy here. I would like to introduce a new writer to my blog. Patty Schell wears many hats including Bible study author and creative chef. In this post, she combines those two talents to prepare an intriguing post for you, filled with a moving story, Scripture, and a delicious recipe. May your heart be inspired and your household blessed by this post.

“I am reminded of your sincere faith,
a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois
and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.”
2 Timothy 1:5 ESV

   Something extraordinary happened in the midst of the hopelessness found in the WWII concentration camps. The women shared recipes with each other, some even writing cookbooks. You may be wondering why in the world they did such a thing as the misery and death surrounded them. The truth is—the ‘food talk’ as they called it boosted their sense of community. They taught each other the art of cooking and baking even though they did not possess the ingredients to prepare the recipes. Through this they kept the hope of their culture alive.
