Tuesday...I'm in a mood.

day #34

What I made today.

.::Mocha Vanilla Smoothie::.
Smoothie contains: ice, milk, powdered instant coffee, a few teaspoons of hot chocolate mix, vanilla yogurt.

.::Breakfast In A Cup::. 

Ingredients: Bread, sausage, eggs, salt & pepper, butter.
Lightly butter a muffin tin. I just did 6, but obviously you can do as many as you will need.
Preheat oven to 375
1. Cook sausage. I had a partial roll of sausage that I just cut 3 pieces off & cooked it in the microwave for about 90seconds. 
2. Roll out the pieces of bread with a rolling pin & use a large round cookie cutter to cut out a circle.
3. Place the circle of bread in the buttered pan.
4. Cut pieces of sausage in 1/2 & place in the bread.
5. Crack 1 egg into each compartment.
6. Add Salt & Pepper
7. Bake for about 25 min or until egg white is cooked.
(*Mine baked for about 25 min & the yokes were pretty solid,
I like more runny yoke so next time I won't cook it as long.*)
These are pretty good left over, I put the leftovers in the fridge & heated it up later, still yummy!

.::Smoothie No.2::.
Ingredients: a few spoonfuls of frozen orange juice, vanilla yogurt, half of a grapefruit.

This morning was nice, I was able to sleep in, casually make breakfast & have my Jesus time. The house was quiet & I was alone, good thing! God has been using Psalms in my life lately, read many good things. I am always amazed when I sit down & read Gods word & I come across a little truth that applied to me so well.
Psalm 34 has more than a few truths that apply to me now.
 1 I will extol the LORD at all times;
   his praise will always be on my lips.
2 I will glory in the LORD;
   let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the LORD with me;
   let us exalt his name together.
 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
   he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
   their faces are never covered with shame
6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
   he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
   and he delivers them.
 8 Taste and see that the LORD is good;
   blessed is the one who takes refuge in him
9 Fear the LORD, you his holy people,
   for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
   but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
11 Come, my children, listen to me;
   I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12 Whoever of you loves life
   and desires to see many good days,
13 keep your tongue from evil
   and your lips from telling lies
14 Turn from evil and do good;
   seek peace and pursue it.
 15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
   and his ears are attentive to their cry;
16 but the face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
   to blot out their name from the earth.
 17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;
   he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
   and saves those who are crushed in spirit
 19 The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all
20 he protects all his bones,
   not one of them will be broken.
 21 Evil will slay the wicked;
   the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 The LORD will rescue his servants;
no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned

This whole chapter applies to me so well, last night I was IN.A.MOOD. I don't know where it came from but it was there. I ended up bawling in my bed, praying & crying out to God. Longings getting stronger & stronger; in my moment of weakness I just couldn't take it. Everything was wrong (even though everything really wasn't).  In these moments I don't understand why I am still waiting for certain things or why I can't seem to accomplish anything or why this isn't happening or why that isn't happening or why I struggle so much with this & that.  Oh tell me I am not the only one. I have to cry out for Gods mercy & grace; when my emotions get the best of me & I get so focused on my own "stuff" that I forget whose I am & I forget who God is. What a wondrous thing Gods grace & love is!
