Morning Glory Monday

Happy Morning Glory Monday to Ya,

  Did you have a great weekend?  We love the weekends at my house.  It's time to spend with family and do needed chores together, set goals for upcoming weekends and spiritual meditation.  We are just like the flower "Morning Glory" we are bright and standing tall taking in all the sunshine, but come evening we tire out and shut down just like the flower does. 

A few posts back I gave you the recipe for my daughter's gluten free coconut cookies.  She made another batch Saturday and here is the picture.  Even though it's hard not to eat them all in a day or two she uses great self-control and only eats one a day.  It's a little harder for my husband to only eat one a day.  He has such a sweet tooth! hehe!

                                                           Recipe of the Day!

Kayla's Eggplant & Zucchini Parmesan

1 organic egg
2 tablespoons organic vegetable oil
1 large organic eggplant
2 medium organic zucchini
1 cup shredded organic Parmesan cheese
1 cup flavored organic breadcrumbs
Watkins organic garlic powder to taste
1 cup meatless organic spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup shredded organic mozzarella cheese 3 oz.

Wash your vegetables and dry off.  Peel the eggplant and zucchini and slice in circles, crosswise 1/2 inch thickness.  Combine egg, 1 tablespoon oil and 1/2 the breadcrumbs in bowl, dip the vegetables on both sides and place in a large skillet with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and garlic to taste.  Cook over med heat for 4 to 6 minutes until golden brown, turning once.  Drain on paper towels or paper plates.

2. In a 2 quart baking dish, place a single layer of vegetables, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Top with the spaghetti sauce and the mozzarella cheese and garlic.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted and well heated.

You always want to use organic vegetables and dairy products to avoid the added antibiotics, hormones and pesticides.

                                                              Scripture of the Day!

Have you every driven on a dimly lit road or in the country where there are no roadside lights?  The only light you see is coming from your cars headlights showing you the way to go.  Without the headlights you would not be able to find your way.  The world today is like that dark country road the only place to find light to guide our steps is from God's word the Bible.  It tells us so at Psalms 119:105 which reads; "Your word is a lamp to my foot, and a light to my roadway."  If we read the Bible daily and apply what we read in our life then we will bring light to others who are still in darkness, spiritually.  

Others can see your light by your fine conduct and your peace.  Reflect of the words found at Matthew chapter 5 verse 16. "Likewise let your light shine before men or women, that they may see your fine works and give glory to your Father who is in the heavens."

Do others seek you out for spiritual guidance?  Those we work with and associate with know they can ask us any question and we will show them the spiritual light found in God's word to help them find the answer.  We should always use the wisdom from above for our guidance.  Here is how God feels about wisdom from the world.  1 Corinthians chapter 3 verse 19, "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, for it is written: "He catches the wise in their own cunning."

Sending You Spiritual Light to guide you on your path.
