One of my favorites...

Katherine Marie's blog is amazing. I know I have posted before about her amazing Candy Land birthday party, but you must go again to see the PIG week!

You also must scroll down and see her Easter baskets! INSPIRATION!

Tomorrow is Jenny's Run for HOPE! I HOPE to see you all there! I will be the one bent over, gasping for air, crying my eyes out, and filled with joy that my friend is in HEAVEN, but empty that she isn't here. I told her I was going to run....

Cinnamon Rolls

14 pans. What was I thinking? Yes, these are the Pioneer Womans rolls. I did try out the orange marmalade rolls on a few pans. I accidently read the recipe wrong and put too much butter, yes you can put too much butter on the they didn't rise correctly because they were drowning in butter. AND I didn't buy enough powered sugar to make the fancy icing, which was SOOOOO good by the way. The rolls, don't think I will make again, but SIGN me up for the icing! You just add in some orange juice, and it was yummy. I also like the Pillsbury orange rolls as well.
The orange rolls above that DID NOT RISE!
All of these were for our Easter Brunch at Bara Church. WE now meet at Byron Nelson High School at 10:00 am on Sundays. WOULD love to have you! Not sure if I will make cinnamon rolls each time or not, so you better come every Sunday so you don't miss it!

This Easter

is different. It just is. You know, I long for people close to me, people I love, to get it. You know, GET IT! Get the LORD! WHO JESUS is! WHY HE CAME! How much better life would be with him in YOUR LIFE! TRULY walking with HIM! I love what I read on someone's facebook tonight: Jesus rose from the dead, you can surely get out of bed! I LOVE IT! Church isn't going to fix someone. You aren't just going to walk through those doors, hear some pretty music, and a great message and walk away in a relationship with JESUS! That isn't how it happens! I surely wish I would have learned that at an earlier age. Going to church isn't the whole package. NOW, don't send me hate emails and comments that I am against the church. I AM NOT! What I truly desire for people, is for them to understand HOW HE LOVES US! THe church can help teach us that. OH, HOW HE LOVES US! You do have to give in a relationship. He will love you anyway, YES YOU! YOU hurting soul! HE LOVES YOU! He also wants you to LOVE him back. SO DO IT!

My friend did that. She LOVED JESUS! Absolutely WHOLE hearted LOVED her SAVIOR! I want to be like her, because she was so much like someone else:::::: JESUS!

Easter is important. It is a great reminder of the power and purpose. Stacey's brother DIED Easter morning 7 years ago. DIED on EASTER! Coma on Friday, DIED on Sunday!

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” – John 11:25-26

Jenny died. Gregg died. I have had grandparents die... isn't this so comforting...HE WHO BELIEVES IN ME, THOUGH he MAY DIE, HE SHALL LIVE!!!
