I'm not into Christian t-shirts, but I saw on the other day that was different. It said, "I'm the wretch in the song" referring to the hymn Amazing Grace. You don't hear that often in this day and age where popular culture tells you that you "deserve" everything. If you deserve anything you want, why be thankful? I'm here to tell you that I'm the wretch and I don't deserve anything I have. Especially the fact that my sins have been paid for. It's all grace. 100% Grace. And I'm very thankful.
(I must go to bed now~ I'm one of those crazies that is going shopping tomorrow morning at an obscene hour in 13 degree weather to save Christmas money.)
I'm thankful for this guy
and these knuckleheads.
Just when you think you can't take anymore, here I am with another recipe.
I've never been overly fond of cranberry sauce. But then again, I'd never made it myself before yesterday. Now, I'm wondering why anyone buys it from a can, because it is so good and so easy. I've also discovered that I really, really like it warm.
Mandie's Mind-Changing Cranberry Sauce
12oz fresh cranberries
1 C. sugar
Using a peeler or a zester, zest your orange into long strips. Place the cranberries and the sugar in your saucepan and squeeze the juice from the orange over the cranberries. Add the zest. Stir often and boil until the cranberries pop, about 10- 15 minutes. That's it! So easy! Try it warm. Yum-o, Cait!
I've gotta go to bed. Ciao!
