How to Start Your Mornings, and Two New Recipes Added to Our Repertoire

Mornings can be beautiful or awful, and we moms have the “power” to make them either. What about instead of “Hurry up!” our first words to our children are:

“This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118: 24

These are the  first words I love my children to hear every morning; and the words I speak to myself every morning as I wake up, and believe it or not, they can help you open your eyes without grumbling!

Isaac Watts wrote a beautiful hymn based on this Psalm, the first stanza says,

This is the day the Lord hath made;
He calls the hours his own;
Let heav’n rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.

Another way we can make mornings beautiful is by cooking a yummy breakfast. This week we tried one new breakfast recipe from my Pinterest board, “Good Morning, Breakfast is Ready”: Blueberry Crumb Cake

The Pioneer Woman

Yes, it was as delicious as it looks.

My girls also wanted to try a new recipe that some suggest is perfect for breakfast, but my girls thought it was perfect for dinner. (I guess some of our American friends are influencing us with their “breakfast for dinner habits”) This recipe comes from my board, “Sweets for Sweets Moments”: Red Velvet Crepês filled with a Mascarpone Cream Filling. My oldest girl decided to reduce the sugar, and I loved the results. They are very, very, very yummy.

Duhlicious

The third thing I made from Pinterest this week is agree with what this poster says:

So, excuse me, ladies… coffee is ready and waiting for me!

“This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118: 24

Beautiful Words

Some words are just too beautiful that they need their own very special place.

Workbook Notes:

I have so many little projects that I would like to make…
today I found my inspiration here,
Something tells me I got the “creative bug”
and will be soon making some other pretty things…
Today I will buy more markers,
Because I would love to try painting more stones with more colors.
(I already had the white marker at home)
I even thought these would make beautiful gifts during this
coming season, don’t you think?
