" Forget that I sowed wild oats; Mark me with your sign of love. Plan only the best for me, God! " (MSG)
Well, I'm a day late and a dollar short...again. The good news is I've been working on getting more organized. I even got a new calendar. I know that once I'm there, it's going to be more time efficient. But, getting there is tough! I'm still not finished organizing my pantry, or my desk area, although progress has been made. There are so many projects going on around here, it's sometimes overwhelming. God has a plan for me, so I'm not going to sweat the small stuff. I carry on day to day, looking forward; knowing that I've been marked by God. He doesn't care whether or not my pantry is color coded and alphabetized. I've been marked by a sign of love in God's calendar. His perfect, orderly design. Lord, keep me from trying to order my life in my way, lead me always in your ways. Amen.
I've been going in so many different directions, it's hard to see what I have accomplished sometimes. But, I have gotten a few things done (and started), to help me sail through my weeks with ease. First, I downloaded a Weekly Menu Planner, and have started to plan better meals. I needed to plan quick and healthy breakfasts and lunches now that the children are headed back to school. Click on the link above to download yours. I also got a new calendar. It's bigger and better! With my big family, I needed more space to keep track of everybody's schedules.

I want to share with you a great easy recipe for a granola that I put on my menu planner for breakfast this week. My youngest has nut allergies and it's hard to find a "nut free" granola in the store (that's affordable!). I got this recipe years ago from Southern Living. The recipe calls for nuts, but is easily adaptable.
Honey-Nut Snack Mix
This granola makes a delicious snack and is even better on Greek yogurt drizzled with honey. Yummy!
I've marked in my calendar that this is going to be a terrific week! I pray yours is, too!
