doesn't THIS look yummy?

i want to make some. i even bought bacon, but i did not get the kind without nitrates (sorry, anne). bacon is kind of 'spensive.

recipe is in the link, this looks like a great blog!

okay. change of subject.

in the past couple days, i've had another epiphany, and it's that EMOTIONS suck. seriously. they do. i know that they have waaaay too much power in my life. this house switching journey is teaching me to NOT look at emotions as markers of what is really going on.

here's an example of how my weeks go; i think you'll see why i am having this thought:

"oh my gosh. the economy is getting seriously WORSE! there is no way this house will sell anytime soon." :(

"woo hoo! two people are going to see the house today! everything is going to be okay!" :))

" crap. the people i thought were going to buy the house cancelled. i'm SURE they bought some other house. i am going to eat a donut now." ;-((

"oh God. why is it cloudy today? nobody looks at houses when it's cloudy." :((((((((

"well, i'll have an open house this weekend. i'm SURE it will be sunny then." :-\

"oh God. nobody is available to have an open house? that must mean God doesn't want to help me sell this house!" :-8(

and on and on it goes. i swear, if i go UP the rollercoaster one more time, and then down again, i will NOT MAKE IT.

hmmmph. for today, i am choosing to stand by this TRUTH instead of being held captive by those pesky emotions. Lord, this day is yours. please use it for your glory, and let me be of sound mind and joyful heart. yay!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

I love that you added the verses that get to the heart of the matter. "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

Do you ever notice that we tend not to do the whole-heart seeking until we're completely helpless in our circumstances?
