Alas, the oven has died...

How we respond when life throws us a curveball tells others a lot about out character. We recently received a curveball, our oven has died :(  

For those of you that know us well, we are bakers at heart; bread, cookies, pies, and even a cake or muffins thrown in for good measure frequently can be found cooling in our kitchen. Baking is a natural part of our weekly activities as a family. So now, as we research our options for what features are available (and which ones we're really willing to pay for) on a new stove, our life has taken a different course. 

Thankfully the stovetop burners are still working, so we have the luxury of taking our time to choose our new stove. The lack of an oven reminds me daily to stop and be thankful for all the blessing we do have. 

The next time life throws you a curveball, try to NOT panic. God knows your needs, and He wants to help you choose wisely your next step on this path of life. Whether you have the luxury of time to decide or not, let your true character shine through in your decisions. Should you happen to find that you don't like that part of you that comes out, maybe it's time for a little self-improvement, and a whole lot of prayer.

So until we decide on our new stove, you'll probably have to look elsewhere for your new favorite cookie recipe, but rest assured, we'll have other fun & encouraging things for you to read in the meantime. If you happen to be doing some baking soon, and have extras, we are great taste-testers (you might even make a blog cameo!)

Soon you will be seeing some reviews from us about apps for your smart phone or tablet. We're going to focus on ones that help kids learn while having fun, and ones that help parents stay organized. Hope to see you here again soon!
