received this email devotional this morning and thought i would pass it on to you…..
by Gail Rogers
The tiny wrinkles around my eyes seemed to appear almost overnight. One day I was very aware of them and knew I had better get that eye cream I was hearing about. I’d better try the “triple action”! I was amazed at the results…and in such a short time! This was good.
The waistband on my jeans felt tight. Could it be those wonderful cappuccinos I was regularly enjoying? I was amazed at the results… and in such a short time! This was not good.
I didn’t like the sand paper edge that seemed to spring up in a friendship of mine. I asked the Lord for patience and grace to bite my tongue. I was amazed at the results… and in such a short time! This was good.
Little decisions or changes peppered throughout the day push the edge of results to the negative or the positive.
It’s the same in your spiritual journey. Little changes… conscious little choices that push your walk with God in one direction or another. Little choices to let God in or to hold Him at a distance. Little choices of attitude; little choices of purity in thoughts or choices of entertainment. Little choices. Invite Him into them. You will be amazed at the results… and in such a short time!
“Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me”
This New Years don’t make grand resolutions that will fade in a few short weeks. Choose daily to let God be a part of the little choices…choose to be amazed …and in such a short time!
Thank you that You can create what is right and good in this heart of mine that often struggles with the little daily choices. Thank you that I can count on You to renew a right attitude within me. I am not making grand New Year’s resolutions that will fade, but I am asking You to help me make the right daily choices in the little things of life. I want to be changed in this New Year. I want You to renew right attitudes in me daily. Amaze me with the results, Father, as You guide me in the small things of my day. Thank you that I can face this New Year with freshness and anticipation because You are holding my hand! You will help me in the little things of my life. For this I give You my praise! In Jesus name I pray, Amen
| well, finally. here is our Thanksgiving menu so far. year to year, things change, but our favorites remain the same.

| i don’t know what it is, but every year when the cold weather blows in, it blows me right into the kitchen. something about baking up some warm sweets on a cold afternoon…i just love it. my friend, lisa, gave me this beautiful dish last week. (thanks lisa!!!!) it is so pretty and was just shouting for something sweet to be baked in it! so, of course, i did.
i used an old favorite recipe for microwave apple crisp, increasing it slightly because the dish is so deep.
in the mood for some warm tasty sweets? put on the coffee pot and try this out. it will warm your insides for sure!!!
| Microwave Apple Crisp
4-6 large Granny Smith apples (**9 for large dish)
8 graham cracker squares (**1 plastic wrapped package)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (**1 cup)
1/2 cup rolled oats (**3/4 cup)

| i read about the “30 Days of Thanksgiving” on this blog and she directed her readers over to another blog. Here’s how it works…from October 24 thru November 22, each day you send a note (via snailmail or email) to someone that you are thankful for. Tell them you are thankful for them, what you love about them, what makes them special, why you are grateful that they are in your life. (Something that we should take more time to do throughout the year.) Start now by making a list of 30 people so that you will be ready on the 24th!
give it a try! leave me a comment if you decide to do it!
