salut & hi!
So, it is a new year. 2014.
While there are so many things to say about this- I am just going to say a few words...
God has got every season planned & purposed for you and me.
God is good and you are loved in every single one of these seasons, whether that is in a crazy storm or in warm sunshine.
God is calling you to live and love for Jesus and others.
God is saying "come with me, I will take you through this year, don't you worry child."
.... Ask yourself,
are you ready to wait patiently,
seek His purpose,
trust in His plan,
encourage & build up others,
enjoy and embrace times of busyness,
rest in the moments of quietness,
be thankful in all,
be vulnerable & open,
be confident & bold,
nourish & indulge,
pursue & be pursued,
live in and live out faith, hope, and love...
And while you and I both reflect on just these few things...
Here is a recipe for my homemade avocado dip!
2 Birds Eye Chilli's, chopped finely
2 Gloves of garlic, crushed
Juice of one lemon
1/4 cup of chopped fresh basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste
Simply combine all ingredients in a food processor (small hand processor works well and less mess to clean up!) until combined.
This is delicious with everything from wholegrain bread, crackers, in a salad dressing, with carrot sticks, as a spread on wraps and sandwiches, or even use as a avocado style pesto on some wholegrain pasta!
Note: If you can't handle a lot of spice- go easy on the chilli!
Enjoy! Let us begin the new year energised and spiced up for what God has in store for us!
