Our beautiful weather had to end sometime so today was a great day to stay indoors and experience pumpkins to the fullest. Today we decided to carve pumpkins (a sensory experience in and of its self) roast seeds, make pie and bread. I made salted seeds, garlic and herb seeds and then cinnamon topped with a bit of stevia to add sweetness with out carbs. I got so wrapped up in the seeds, the bread has to wait until tomorrow. We had great fun digging out the guts and creating faces and other such creatures on our pumpkins. I was the only one who didn't make a face on my pumpkin because I like to bake mine, puree it and make goodies out of it. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are on my list of things to make with my yummy gourd. Here are some pictures of our day:
This blog is simply me telling the story of my life and much of it involves caring for my daughter who has type one diabetes. None of this blog is ever intended as medical advice. Please seek your own doctor for medical advice and diagnosis.
I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.
I am a wife, a mother to four beautiful children- one of whom has T1D or Type One Diabetes, a Christ follower, a friend, a sister, a daughter etc. I am always striving to improve my health, the way I parent, my walk with Christ and my life in general. I believe that life is too short to sweat the small stuff. I am striving to find the abundant life that Jesus talks about in John 10:10 where He says "I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly." I believe in living life to the fullest each and every day! I love a good cup of coffee, long walks and deep conversations. I want to be the best I can be and I know that I am a work in progress.
