Eternity....forever.

My heart was broken this weekend seeing some of my own family members who don't know the Lord and want nothing to do with Him. I really don't have words except I will not stop praying for them and for their hearts and their eyes to be opened to the truth. I pray that they will come to know the truth before their day of judgement comes. Do you realize that if you deny God and His Word, you will be separated from Him for eternity? Even if you are a nice person who does good things! The moment you die is your moment of judgement, you will meet God face to face and if you have denied Him He will separate you from spending eternity with Him and send you into Hell for eternity. Eternity is forever! There is a verse in Matthew 13:42 that describes hell as this "a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." Picture yourself on the hottest day you've ever experienced, in the most pain you have ever felt, and having your face slammed against a block wall constantly because you are so miserable. That is real! And, you will never be one day closer to the end. I don't mean to be harsh but I am not about to downplay or sugar coat something that is so real and so important. Friends, this is reality and we need to turn from our selfish and evil ways and get on our knees before the Lord and commit our life to Him! This life here on Earth is not about us in case you were wondering. We are here to serve others and to share the Love of Christ with them. It doesn't matter if we are rich or poor, fat or skinny, smart or not....God has you on this Earth for a reason and that is to serve Him by serving others. Put yourself aside for a day and try it. I'm sure some people might label me as a "Jesus freak" and that's ok. I would not put myself in that category but I definitely am not ashamed to say that I love God and believe in Him with all my heart and my desire is to serve Him each and every day. I have been learning so much this past month about the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I can't help it but want to share. I could go on and on but I don't need to. If you have heard the Word of God, which you have if you are reading this blog then you will account for that when your time comes and you meet the Lord face to face. Have you accepted His truth or have you denied it? If you were to die tonight, where will you be spending eternity?

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!

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store!
