Baking Adventure



Today was my first time to make Baklava. Mmmm! The very first time I had it was when I was at Verity Institute for my graphic design class. They served it for dessert on one evening, and I LOVED it, so I decided to make it for Resurrection Sunday (tomorrow).


Didn't get any pics of the makings, but, oh well!
Have a blessed weekend, and He is Risen!

Baking Adventure


After we finished "Behind the Veils of Yemen" (which I recommend to anyone who enjoys missionary stories), we had "Yemen Night."  Mom and I made Saltah - The National Dish of Yemen, one lady brought an American dessert (chocolate and ice cream!), and another brought Chickpeas. 

It was a very successful (and delicious) meal. 
Then we watched a video about Islam from former terrorist Kamal Saleem

 The finished Saltah

 Chickpeas

 Fenugreek paste (believe me, it was PASTE)

I dressed up :)

I was asked to make Scones for Cafe Barnabas, so that's what I did all morning.

Blueberry


Finished

Chocolate Chip :P



T'was a FUN (and messy) morning!

Randomness and a Winter Wonderland in March

I guess I'm obsessed with close-ups now :)



Coconut



 With it being Palm Sunday and all, I thought I'd get some pics with a palm branch

"And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest."
Matthew 21:9




SNOW AGAIN!







Have a wonderful week, and look for some pictures tomorrow, or Tuesday from "Yemen Night."

A Day (and a half) at Grams and Papa's

On Thursday, several of us went out to my grandparent's house to spend the night. And believe me, when we go out there, I HAVE to have my camera! There are things out there that I don't get to take pictures of (or at least really good pictures of) here.

Thursday evening:


I LOVE to "play around" with my camera and get all sorts of pictures.

Barbed wire fence with sunset




After it got dark, my grandpa opened up his observatory, and we got to look at the moon, and a blurry side of Jupiter. :) I really wanted to somehow hook my camera to the telescope to take some pictures of the moon's craters, but alas! I couldn't... :(

Friday morning:
 Birds...


Red Bellied Woodpecker

I actually have no idea what bird this is...

Jack playing with a giant stick


 Boys...
Josiah, cousin Trenton, and Daniel

Carrying some wood to make a tepee, and waving to me

The finished tepee...

My dog, Pepper (It was 80 degrees that day, hence the reason his tongue is hanging out).

More Barbed wire :)

Go ye therefore!

It's probably one of the most memorized verses in the Bible...

"Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." 
-Matthew 28:19-20

But I wonder why very few people put it into action.
A friend posted this little video clip on G+ a few weeks ago, and I wanted to share it with y'all :)


You don't have to go to a third world country to be a missionary. You can do that right here in the U.S. of A.


I have probably posted this quote before, but its one of my favorites:
"We are all missionaries...Wherever we go, we either bring people nearer to Christ, or we repel them from Christ. We are working for the great Kingdom of God - the time when all people will turn to Christ as their leader, and will not be afraid to own him as such."
-Eric Liddell
