Isaiah 6:8-10
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”  And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”  He said, “Go and tell this people:
“‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding;
be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’
Make the heart of this people calloused;
make their ears dull and close their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears, understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.”

I think “comments” are hard to find within this blog.  When someone writes a comment it shows at the bottom of that particular post.  Those can be hard to find!  I recently added a link that shows on the right hand side of the page under the posted Prayer.   Scroll down past the prayer to the Orange RSS Feed logo.  If you click on RSS-Comments, you will be able to see all comments from the beginning of the blog.  I hope this helps and will encourage others to post comments within the blog! 

We had waffles with fresh blueberries for Sunday brunch.  My waffle recipe is “made from scratch” and came from my brother Mike, some years ago.  It is easy and really full of flavor.  At Mike’s house he is the waffle maker.  When I asked him where the name for this recipe came from he said, “I don’t know, but whenever anybody walks in to the kitchen when I am making waffles, they always say OH BOY! Waffles!”  This recipe works in a regular waffle maker as well as a Belgian waffle maker, which is what I used.   My children and my grandchildren all love a breakfast that includes waffles.  Next time you want to make waffles, give this recipe a try.  I like to stir it up the night before and let the flavors meld a bit.  But don’t forget stirring too much will make your waffles tough.  Stir just enough to get it mixed.  This goes for pancake batter as well.  Too much stirring is not a good thing!

Makes 10 Belgian Waffles

  • 2 ½ cups flour
  •  2 ½ cups buttermilk with 1 teaspoon of soda stirred in
  • ½ cup oil
  •  2 eggs
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

Mix eggs, milk, and oil in bowl.
Sift dry ingredients together into wet ingredients.

Do not over mix but make sure it is not lumpy.

Always spray griddle before the first waffle.

It takes just less than ½ cup for each of the 4 waffles in the Belgian waffle iron, and less than 1 cup for a regular waffle iron.


  1. Make this the night before and refrigerate – it helps to meld the flavors!
  2. Always experiment with one of two before making them for guests.
  3. When adding walnuts or pecans chop them fine.
  4. Can add fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries.
  5. Add Chocolate chips for the grandkids!

A waffle is a batter– or dough-based cake cooked in a waffle iron patterned to give a distinctive and characteristic shape. There are many variations based on the type and shape of the iron and the recipe used.

Waffles are eaten throughout the world, particularly in Belgium and the United States. Common toppings are strawberries, chocolate, sugar, honey, syrups, ice cream, and more.
