Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

1/4  cup  all-purpose flour

4  (6-oz.) tilapia fillets

1/2  teaspoon  salt

2  tablespoons  butter

2  tablespoons  olive oil


1. Process 1/2 cup almonds in a food processor until finely chopped, and combine with 1/4 cup flour in a shallow bowl.

2. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt; dredge in almond mixture.

3. Melt butter with olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat; add fish, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove fillets to a serving plate.

I found this recipe in Southern Living and tried it for dinner the other night! It was so delicious I

thought I would share it with you. I served it with a huge mixed green salad and some kalamata

olive bread from our local market. My family loved it!

Have a wonderful Friday everyone!

Lots of Love!!!

I know ya'll have been dying to see my little stool I bought at Ballard and Blakely the other day;)!

Isn't it the cutest! I love it! Apple green, brown and pink...I fell in love! The needlepoint is vintage

as well as the trim but I think the legs are just old. I had to put it on my barstool to get a good pic.

The other photos are of goodies I bought on the same day...I couldn't leave with only one

thing...not me;)! The iron topiary thingy...hehe...on a chest in my dining room is from B and B

too. I love the shape and adds so much to the little vignette. The other iron thingys...also

came home with me...they don't have a home yet but I wanted to share them with you anyway. I

adore this shop and plan on making it a regular stop on my shopping trips! I hope ya'll like all my

goodies. Aren't they cuuuuute?!

Sunday Blessings!!!

Sunday 4-12

Christ offers something for nothing: He even offers everything for nothing.  In a sense, the whole

Christian life consists in accepting that very remarkable offer.

My precious little girl just turned 21! Oh my...the time flies too quickly! My husband and I celebrated by taking her to dinner at one of our favorite places...Nick and Sam's Grill. I am so proud of the young woman she has become...she is my middle child and the only girl and I ADORE her! She is my best friend and I might be a little bias but I consider myself the luckiest mom in the world to have such an amazing child!

Happy Birthday darling girl...we both love you VERY much!

Lots of Love!!!

Easter Cross

Arise, My Love

Not a word was heard
at the tomb that day.
Just shuffling of soldiers feet
as they guarded the grave.
One day, two days,
three days had past.
Could it be that Jesus
breathed His last?
Could it be that His Father
had forsaken him?
Turned his back on his son
despising our sin.
All hell seemed to whisper
'Just forget Him, He's dead.'
Then the Father looked down
to his son and he said...

Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
has a hold on you
No more death's sting
No more suffering love.

The Earth trembled
and the tomb began to shake,
and like lightening
from Heaven the stone was rolled away.
And as dead man
the guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of love
displayed its might
Then suddenly a melody
filled the air
Riding wings of wind,
it was everywhere
The words all creation
had been longing to hear
The sweet sound of victory,
so loud and clear.

Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more death's sting
no more suffering
Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated.
The grave could not hold the king.

Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
has a hold on you
No more death's sting
No more suffering


Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating our risen Savior!

God Bless You All!!!
