Happy Spring!

Today, March 20th marks the vernal equinox and the first day of spring. Crape Myrtles are starting to bloom in our yard...and our roses look gorgeous. I found a few springtime yummys that can come from your garden! Chard is very easy to grow and cooks just like spinach. Neals Berry Farm has the best selection.   So those of you that are clean eating, here are some recipes that will bring fresh produce into your home. Happy eating. Happy spring!  

Get some ripe avocados and fresh watercress and whip up this easy, colorful snack.
Rainbow chard, cipollini onion, and orange salad
This tasty salad is packed with vitamins, and has a punch of vivid color.

Birds of a Feather

My hope for you today is to seek a spirit of kindness.
  I was shown kindness yesterday by two precious women in my life who have a consistent spirit of kindness. Treasure those in your life like jewels. 

"Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality."
Romans 12:9-13

In history, myth, legend & lore, the peacock is considered an emblem of protection, nobility, watchfulness, guidance, and holiness.
