Merciful Days: GF DF Blueberry Waffles

Standard

Blueberry Waffles2My husband’s family has an incredible breakfast repertoire.  Grandpa was a baker. Dad was a baker.  And my husband has their genes.  One of his all time favorite family recipes is Grandpa’s Cornmeal Waffles.  They are incredible.  And full of gluten and dairy.  We have been working on modification experiments for months.  So happy to have a tried and true recipe base!!  It is the perfect host for all kinds of mix-ins and flavor variations.  Go wild with your favorite flavors.  Our favorites have been blueberry & lemon and pumpkin with pie spices.

Merciful Days: Beautiful Expectations

Standard

Rom 8v16“And don’t forgot a note!” She sang at me while I packed her lunchbox this morning. “A note for my lunchbox!”

I had tucked a note into her lunchbox on her first day of school last week.  And I wrote a note for her second day too. And third. And fourth. And fifth. And sixth. And now the seventh.  Every day in her school career has featured a note from her mum.  She knows no school day without a note.  For her, it’s the norm.  She expects notes from me.

Guess what I decided today? I will be writing daily notes for my sweet daughter. Perhaps for the next 13 years.

As I folded today’s note into her pink princess sandwich box and thought about her beautiful expectation, I saw a challenge to my Faith.  An inspiration for my relationship with Yahweh. [Continue…]
