Mugs and Muffins

Friday morning while Harper was in MDO I went and helped bake muffins for our women's event Saturday morning. We baked 550 muffins! My friend Robin who makes the BEST COOKIES - was our chief baker! She did a great job!

It was a lot of work but I had a lot of fun! Robin even made us the cutest aprons with muffins on them.
We made 5 different kinds: Chocolate chocolate chip, pumpkin, blueberry, coffee cake and donut. They were all good! (Well they all looked good - I didn't eat them all!)
And I would love to post the recipes but I don't have them - I just showed up and helped! :-)

We had a GREAT turnout Saturday morning and I was so excited because I knew everyone there would be hearing a great message! This is me and four of my friends! I didn't take any pictures because I was busy keeping the muffins in stock. ha!
Our speaker is a lady who works with FCA and has survived both breast and cervical cancer and then in September her only daughter who was a senior in high school was killed in a car wreck. Yet Becky (her name) is glorifying God through it all. She was such an inspiration to me. After her daughter Micayla died - they found her Bible with a marker in it and this verse underlined. They went on to find this verse five times in her room. I love this verse and it's become the verse that they feels defines her life. Shouldn't it define us all?

"Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart my fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever" Psalm 73:25-26

Before she spoke - she played this song by Hillsong. I love this song but I was really listening to it and I was so struck by some of the words of this song. I think this part should be my daily prayer:

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me

Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to Eternity
