Going With The Flow

The treat bags I shared with you had homemade goodies in them~~~pralines, cookies, and brownies!


Here is the recipe for the pralines.

The following is taken from Victoriously Frazzled. I believe if we can all take it to heart, the frazzle meter will go WAY down.

"I'm getting better at 'allowing' God to order the events of my day. That's not to say I don't plan. It's just when things don't go according to my plan, it's more okay than it used to be. God is teaching me that He wants to be in charge of all the ins and outs of my day. When the unexpected happens, He's teaching me to relax in Him and go with the flow."

Have a great Thursday, and remember......go with the flow.

  4. Great post! I used to get flustered when things didn't go as planned. I felt like I was not in control; then one day I realized I WAS NEVER IN CONTROL! When I realized that, I calmed down and started to go with the flow.

  10. Blessings and hugs to you Diana, I loved these bags-you are so creative. The Pralines sound really good-wish I could partake but I'm off of sugar totally.
    Thanks for being such an encourager and visiting me often-I count it a blessing to be linked to you by the Blood of the Lamb.

  12. I'm so excited to make a new Texas friend. I get so homesick sometimes I feel like I could throw up...really....or atleast indulge in a really good self pity headache. :)

    And guess what...I have a Jonah too. He's my treasure of a boy...um, young man now. He's almost 15. Yikes!
