November Gratitude Photo Callenge:: day thirty - the middle place

Finally getting around to posting the last part of my November Gratitude Photo Challenge, from Middle Places. It's been a long month...

Before I share my photo, let me share with you a small portion of my middle place... just over two years ago my life took on some major changes, some I have shared... some I will not. One of those changes happened when my husband decided to serve in Israel for three weeks... which meant a resignation of job, relocation of family and many many emotional trials. But it also meant growth.

Then my middle place road led us to nine months of no work for him, and two years of camper living in three states... to have it end, here... with a complete restoration of his job, a new home that does not have wheels, and my family together under one roof... with the fear of the LORD before our eyes.

We are beginning again.

Life learned.

Living forward and embracing this new season with intent and thankfulness. And through it all, my Redeemer has never left me {us} nor forsaken me {us}... middle place or narrow road.

We move in on my husbands birthday, and oh is this going to be joyful! One year, to save for our own house... it truly feels like we are beginning again.

~ Blessings!

November Grattitude Photo Challenge :: day twenty two thru twenty nine

This month {and photo} challenge is almost over, Thanksgiving came and went... and we are still living in a middle place. And I am still choosing to see the blessings in the day to day, the small and the big... and hopefully remembering to praise Him daily. Out Loud!

day twenty two: a tradition

potato latkes

day twenty three: a detail

I tried to capture the detail in it's wings...

day twenty four: a distraction

Not all distractions are bad, but this one however was negative in cause... photo includes my whole food choices for fighting a severe cold in our family. Garlic, Onion, Ginger and Turmeric...

day twenty five: a life changing book


 A copied photo from a previous post, this book is worth reading again and again... it has changed my life drastically and would recommend it all!

day twenty six: a perspective

view of her shogi lined up

day twenty seven: a convenience

Okay - ten organic mango's for four dollars! Convenient and Frugal...

day twenty eight: a shelter & day twenty nine: an activity

He is my shelter... My Redeemer, Yeshua {Jesus}! The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob... and this is also my photo for an activity... drawing.

I hoped to have had more time in taking photo's... but right now, it is what it is. And I am okay with that... my last photo will on 'a middle place'... till then, thank you for stopping.

~ Blessings!

Sweet Potato Biscuits :: new traditions

I am interrupting the photo challenge to bring you a wonderful recipe that is new to our family... Sweet Potato Biscuits. This year, we were invited to share in a Thanksgiving Dinner with some new friends, and one of their traditions are these tasty little gems.

Sweet Potato Biscuits

5 cups flour
5 t baking powder
1 stick butter
3 cups cooked and mashed sweet potato

Directions: blend the first three ingredients, in a large bowl, using a pastry blend. Then add the three cups of mashed, cooled, sweet potatoes and mix well with your hands. Shape into biscuits, about one inch think and place on baking sheet. With side touching.

Bake at 425 for 15 to 20 minutes, until done. Remove from baking sheet and serve slightly warm with lots of butter...

These will definitely be added to our family recipe binder!
