Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

Merry Christmas Adam

You know, Adam came before Eve and tomorrow is Christmas Eve.  Have spent the day with my 4 youngest at my daughter's house.   We baked, we sat and laughed at youtube videos, we baked, I napped, we baked, we played jeopardy (and got spanked by her husband), now we need to clean but we are playing scrabble first.

Michael wanted to make a Happy Birthday Jesus cake and decided upon a peanut butter cake.  We made a french vanilla cake and flavored it with peanut butter.   After we baked the cake, we made peanut butter frosting with butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk.   Michael frosted the cake and then cut up little peanut butter cups all over the top.   He did a great job.

Praise, Michael & Cindy also made cute little pretzel snacks with m and m's and chocolate chips.   They also made peanut butter, sugar, and chocolate chip cookies.  We baked many small loaves of bread.    We'll have to finish the rest of the baking tomorrow because if you stuck a fork in me now you'd find that I'm done.   Thanking the Lord for all the sweet notes of prayer I received today.  Good night.
