Okay, so we traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin yesterday... my husband is a pastor and a parishoner was going into surgery... I know a 6 hour drive, but It is so worth it though. If you see how these visits make a difference in peoples life. I am thankful that my husband is willing to take the time to share God's Comfort and Forgiveness... no matter what.
We ate at Noodles and Company. I LOVE this place. I have only eaten there maybe four times (we live in a remote community)... so when we travel out of town it is a true blessing to have dinner out. Today I am going to "mock-up" a noodle recipe! I will post pics later! Whole Wheat Pasta, fresh Romas, garlic, balsamic, onion.... yummm-o!

I am torn each year before attending service. Thinking I MUST be mournful, that my FEELINGS must be pulled to sadness. BUT, I live under Grace. Constantly. So each Maundy Thursday and Good Friday I wrestle with the "am I sad enough" feeling. Then I go to the Tenebrae service.
And I get it.
It is so not about what I am feeling. It is how Lent, Holy Week and Easter of our church season "keeps it real" for me.
I am thankful.
FULL of thanksgiving to Christ in a solemn, reverent way.
Our Hymns this afternoon were awesome.
Full of sound doctrine. Full of Truth. Full of Christ Crucified.
Please, if you have not attended a traditional Tenebrae Service, the readings as the altar is stripped of our earthly worship tools...make room in your heart to attend next year. You will be FILLED!

Table Favor Cookies for the Confirmation Students this week.
All it takes is a few ingredients...
To create rolled fondant!
This seems to be my "springtime" tradition... making these cookies, if you recall here...
Again, take my advice, and don't try to save time by buying the Wilton Brand in the store... you will NOT ever eat fondant again if you try pre-made!
