God Bless America Psalm 33-12Happy 4th of July weekend!  After spending the last 31 days out of our country, this 4th of July has a very special meaning to my Chief Traveler and I as we come home to Tennessee!

I hope that you will find time this holiday weekend to join in the celebrations while also giving thanks to God for blessing this terrific nation of ours.  Please join me in also giving thanks to God for all those men and women who gave their all, and in many cases their life, so that we may enjoy the freedom that comes with living in the U.S.A.

I’m proud to be an American,
~Catherine

That was long before Superman and his blue cape showed up on little boy’s cakes.

Then I married and had four healthy children. Is God enough? It’s a hard question to answer when you have about all anyone could ever ask for in life … my health, a loving husband, four children, friends and family, a nice home, plenty of food, enough money, a good church, a free country to live in. I often wondered if I loved God mainly for who He is or if it was more because He has showered me with blessings.

David and I often felt guilty because we saw so many go through rough times while life was so good and relatively easy for us. We wondered if we were surrendered enough to God’s will for Him to entrust us with difficulties. We wondered if we were of such a little threat to the devil and his mission that he didn’t bother messing with us. We wondered why others seemed to be tried and tested and we were not. We wondered.

Summer weekends and holidays are often times filled with family and friends visiting.  Today I am highlighting a few of my favorite breakfast recipes I enjoy making when we have company.

Pralines Cream French Toast
I always start with this Praline French Toast.  This is a very simple recipe and your family and friends will flip over it.  This makes a fairly sweet dish so you may want to serve something like Apple Sage Sausage along with it. But wait there’s more! Click to continue reading
