As we head into the final days of this year I am thinking of two verses to encourage you with.

Psalm 20:4 says  “May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your purpose.” Another word for purpose is counsel. I pray your heart’s desire is to grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord delights in granting that desire!

The other verse is Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Actually the next two verses in that passage are just as wonderful: “Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:12-13

May you have a future in Him!

Hopefully, 2013 will also be the year you embark on some new culinary adventures. The kitchen is the heart of the home and we keep it beating with healthy, fresh food. I look forward to being on the journey with you!
