22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[a]
    his mercies never come to an end;

    great is your faithfulness.

    “therefore I will hope in him.”

Sunday Scripture

A voice says, “Cry out.”
And I said, “What shall I cry?”
“All people are like grass,
and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field.
7 The grass withers and the flowers fall,
because the breath of the Lord blows on them.
Surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.
                              ~ Isaiah 40:6-8

17 Every good gift and every perfect 
gift is from above, and comes down 
from the Father of lights,with whom
 there is no variation or shadow of turning.

 Consequently, faith comes from hearing 
the message, and the message is heard 
through the word about Christ.

A Pumpkin Pie French Toast Morning...

First, I want to start by giving praise to my Father in Heaven for the beautiful autumn weather that has come our way! I know most people probably hate the rain and long for the warmer days of summer, but I love cool, crisp mornings that smell like rain and falling leaves! I'm so excited to help my children really experience and savor the seasons as they change! So many memories I want to give them as they grow! I want them to grow up to be adults who can see His handiwork in all the details of nature, in the smells of the kitchen, and in the warmth of a cozy home! We started this morning with pumpkin pie french toast that was so delicious! My oldest son is almost 21 months and he loves to help me cook...kinda. He really loves sampling things with his finger and dumping ingredients in the bowl for me and I love his company sitting atop the counter next to me! Here's the recipe... enjoy it and the beautiful autumn days ahead!


3 eggs
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp vanilla 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
2 tbsp brown sugar
8 slices of bread (I used sourdough)


1. Mix all the ingredients together.

2. Heat a pan over medium heat. (I like to use a little butter in the skillet too.)

3. Dip both sides of the bread and grill until golden brown. Keep the slices that are done in your oven at 200 degrees while you finish the rest.

4. Butter and serve with warm maple syrup. You could add a little cinnamon to the syrup too!

5. Enjoy!!

Creamy Potato Soup

As autumn arrives I find myself excited once again for trying new soup recipes! I love soups for their simple ingredients, easy preparation, and the comfort they bring on a chilly damp fall night! 


4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
4 cups peeled and cubed potatoes
1 cup chopped carrots (my addition)
1/4 cup diced onion
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt (I used Old Bay)
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 80z package cream cheese cut into chunks


1. Combine broth, potatoes, carrots, onions, and spices.

2. Boil on medium heat until potatoes are tender.

3. Smash a few potatoes to thicken it a bit. (I blended mine with my immersion blender to have a more smooth consistency... easier to get veggies in my toddler that way)

4. Reduce heat and add the cream cheese.

5. Stir until melted and then serve! I grated cheddar cheese on top but ham or bacon would be great too! On the side I served toasted pita bread with butter... everyone cleaned their bowls! Enjoy!
