From My Heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 -NIV

Another easy recipe but oh so good!

This is a very moist, yummy, and fairly simple carrot cake from scratch. It comes from a cookbook that the women of the church I grew up in put together. I have given the lady who submitted it her credit!

I would love to hear from some of you. Read below for a post from a few days ago to learn what we are chatting about. I would like to hear your thoughts about keeping our focus in the right place this Christmas season.

Here’s that yummy recipe……..
