oswald chambers

may my complaining, whining, questioning, and discontentment cease
thanks again Oswald for letting the Holy Spirit speak through you

"God is not working towards a particular finish;
His end is the process -
that I see Him walking on the waves,
no shore in sight,
no success,
no goal,
just the absolute certainty that it is all right
because I see Him walking on the sea.
It is the process, not the end, which is glorifying to God."
--Oswald Chambers (My Utmost For His Highest, July 28)

along with the Bible, tonio and i read this devotional almost everyday
we were both really convicted by this particular day
i keep trying to see what's next, but God wants me to see what's now

love lindsey

you can read the devotionals HERE
just choose "Today's Reading"

 j'ai trouvé cette recette sur le site: 
i found this recipe on this site:

tarte aux pommes // apple tart
(avant // before)

 (après // after)
cette recette // this recipe:

cookies de banane et flocons d'avoine // banana oatmeal cookies
 et ces cookies délicieux // and these delicious cookies:

poulet avec moutarde // mustard chicken
tonio and i enjoyed the mustard chicken together for dinner one night
he gives his approval, which is a translation from, "you rocked the party"
i love my husband

tarte aux pommes // apple tart 
we invited pierre and nancy over to enjoy this one together
accompanied with vanilla ice cream and a nice white wine
mmmm...i think all taste buds approved that this is a winner

cookies de banane et flocons d'avoine // banana oatmeal cookies 
whenever i make cookies, i like to have tonio check them for me
he approved the dough, then almost a plate full of warm goodness disappeared
i realized that this recipe deserves a few more "encores"
i brought the rest to the church café where they were then fully devoured

--Love Lindsey
(we'll see how long this baking/cooking bug lasts - i hope for the rest of my life!)
