Friday, August 9


Happy Friday everyone! I've been so bad about keeping up with my Friday Treats post. Mainly because I just haven't had much time to be browsing online these days. I did come across some amazing recipes though this week that I could not stop thinking about. This would be my ideal meal for today if dreams did come true...;)

I'd start off with this delicious chipotle chicken and corn chowder...

Next would be this tasty main dish. My husband and I have been wanting to try paella ever since we saw it on PBS awhile ago. Seeing this one just makes our mouth water even more...

Lastly I'd finish off with this beautiful dessert. Roasted plum ice cream... what's not to like?! :)

Once it was the blessing,
Now it is the Lord;
Once it was the feeling,
Now it is His Word;
Once His gift I wanted,
Now, the Giver own;
Once I sought for healing,
Now Himself alone.

All in all forever,
Only Christ I’ll sing;
Everything is in Christ,
And Christ is everything.

Once ’twas painful trying,
Now ’tis perfect trust;
Once a half salvation,
Now the uttermost;
Once ’twas ceaseless holding,
Now He holds me fast;
Once ’twas constant drifting,
Now my anchor’s cast.

Once ’twas busy planning,
Now ’tis trustful prayer;
Once ’twas anxious caring,
Now He has the care;
Once ’twas what I wanted,
Now what Jesus says;
Once ’twas constant asking,
Now ’tis ceaseless praise.

Once it was my working,
His it hence shall be;
Once I tried to use Him,
Now He uses me;
Once the pow’r I wanted,
Now the Mighty One;
Once for self I labored,
Now for Him alone.

Once I hoped in Jesus,
Now I know He’s mine;
Once my lamps were dying,
Now they brightly shine;
Once for death I waited,
Now His coming hail;
And my hopes are anchored
Safe within the veil.
