On my knees

Here is the song I have been singing over and over in my head over the last month. It was written by a friend of ours at church who is an incredible singer/songwriter. His name is Lou Hager and he wrote "On my Knees" a few years back when his brother was really ill. I could not get it out of my head when my Pops was here and suffering.
I pray that this song blesses you as it has to me.


Here I am Lord, I’m on my knees again,
Seeking the forgiveness, that only You can give
You’re my rock Lord, You’re my salvation,
Showing Your mercy, everyday that I live.
I can’t make it, without Your strength Lord,
No I’m nothing without You, so Lord hear my pleas,
Cause humbly I come to You
I’ll meet You on my knees

Yes on my knees Lord, is where You’ll find me
Your love reminds me, that You’re always there.
And when I’m with You, nothing else matters.
Be with me please,
I’ll meet You on my knees.

Here I am Lord, I’m on my knees again,
Thankful for the blessings and the love that You have shown.
You have provided, all that was needed,
When you gave us , the greatest gift this world has known.
So in this quiet time, draw us closer
Yes, You promised to be with us, to those who believe.
So humbly I come to You,
I’ll meet You on my knees

Yes on my knees Lord, is where You’ll find me
Your love reminds me, that You’re always there.
And when I’m with You, nothing else matters.
Be with me please, I’ll meet You on my knees,
Stay with me please, I’ll meet You on my knees

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
