Welcome to my bi-weekly round-up of posts from the blog and from around the web! This post contains affilate links.
Five Things Friday
- Avocado toast…what are your thoughts? Have you ever tried it? My two teenage daughters love it and have converted me! Just toast some good whole grain bread, spread butter liberally, and then spread mashed avocado over the top. DELICIOUS!!! Bonus, add scrambled egg to the top…extra delicious!
- This week on the blog I shared how to make your own cross-back apron and the three best ways to eat turnips!
3. I just bought a Honeycrisp apple tree and a bing cherry tree to plant this weekend! I sure hope they thrive! Our soil is so rocky, planting trees is quite a chore! I also bought two elderberry bushes! We make our own elderberry syrup, I would love to make it from our own elderberries!
5. For the month of March I read a Proverb a day, I truly enjoyed it, but Proverbs is so rich that you really need more than a day for each one! This was one of my very favorites: He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered. Proverbs 28:26. I realize this is completely contrary to the message we hear in the world. The world says “trust your heart”, however, the Bible warns about trusting your heart in multiple places. Our “heart” can be deceived and easily swayed this way and that. We can be moved emotionally. That is why we need to build our lives on truth. We get the truth from the word of God and through prayer. Ask for wisdom, God is always faithful to give it liberally!
