2/31 Days Outside the Kitchen and On the Move - Fall

Don't you love the colors of Autumn and how they are mimicked in every aspect of nature? I do! It's so beautiful in the area(s) we live in (we are in the middle of a move) this time of year. The leaves are just starting to turn, with the dogwoods and sumac changing to deep reds as the morning temperatures drop. I was afraid I'd miss the colors in both states (Arkansas and Kentucky) but I think I'll see the best of the Arkansas colors after this weekend when a cold front blows through and we get into the 40's overnight. The rain will help the leaves stay on the trees, but it won't help these poor flowers keep their color... Some things will just fade with the coming of cooler weather. Like me! I want to hunker down inside, bake yummy high carb foods and hunker down like a bear. What does Fall make you feel like doing?

It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
