We went to church this morning...
It was motivational indeed...
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?" Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fears, our presence automatically liberates others.
I loved hearing that this morning, and needed too.
Today I am catching up on all things domestic. I have veggies to cut and clean, chex mix in the oven, an apple pie to make , laundry whihc never ends, including bed linens, and rugs and dough rising so I may make Runzas (which is time consuming, but I made the filling a month ago and froze it, and will make enough I can freeze some.
Original Runza Recipe
2 pound ground beef
1 large onion , chopped
1 Medium Cabbage, chopped
2 batches of bread dough
Saute onion in a bit of oil until just translucent. Add hamburger and saute until no longer pink. Season with salt and pepper. Drain away the grease, and return to the pan. Cover the mixture with the shredded cabbage and cook until the cabbage is done. Stir occasionally. This could take about 45 minutes or so.
Using an egg-dough recipe, roll small balls of dough thin to make a 5×5 square. Put about 1/2 cup of cabbage mixture in center of square and seal closed. Place seal side down on a parchment lined baking sheet (or a lightly greased sheet).
Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 or until lightly golden brown.
I am also taking engagement pictures today.
Busy, I might need extra arms. But frankly I heart being busy, it makes me feel good and useful.
