I seem to be at a loss for words lately so when that happens I suppose I resort to posts about food or decorating. It's easy, simple and I don't have to think too much. Our family has been busy these last few weeks and I am looking forward to the end of the school year coming to an end. I'm ready for the rest and relaxation that summer days bring. At the same time, the end of the school year means that Jessica's graduation is quickly approaching and her time here at home is getting less and less. As much as I want to hold on to her forever, letting go is just around the corner. As of today, she has only 19 days of school left. But who's counting?
I've also had some real heart to heart moments with God and many things are becoming a lot more clear to me. I'm sure once I am able to put all my thoughts into words I will do so here. He is making Himself known to me in the everyday moments and I am clinging to Him and allowing Him to make me into the woman He wants me to be. I have gotten involved at a local faith-based organization where I am serving breakfast to the homeless, poor, and those in need once a week as well. More on that later too I'm sure. I'm also beginning a new Bible study tonight and I always get excited about that. It's that first day of school feeling except I know that I am going to have friends to sit next to and what I'm wearing really doesn't matter. I'm going to be co-leading this study for the next six weeks with not only my mentor, but one of my dearest friends. All I can say is that it's been nothing other than God's perfect plan in bringing this group of women together. I couldn't be more excited to be spending time with these women and I am anticipating God to draw our hearts closer to Him and that we come away loving Him more.
So with that being said because remember I am at a loss for words, I thought I would share this simple and yummy treat with you...

All you need is a chocolate cupcake, butter pecan ice cream (or your favorite flavor), caramel sauce, and chopped pecans. Really, there are so many ways that you could serve this... the possibilities are endless. Be creative and enjoy!
Now you know that if my posts are random and few that I am still here. I'm just going to be a little more busy in the days to come and focusing on the things that matter the most to me.
