{be}

"Be of good courage, 
and he shall strengthen your heart, 
all ye that hope in the Lord."
~Psalm 31:24~


You are good.  
But it is not enough just to be good.  
You must be good for something.  
You must contribute good to the world.
~Gordon B. Hinckley~
 

Be faithful in small things 
because it is in them that your strength lies.  
~Mother Teresa~



This morning I helped serve breakfast
to women in our area
who spend a whole lot of their time
serving those around them.

It's a simple way to say thanks.
And to let them know how much their service is appreciated.

Every time we get together,
I am inspired by them.
By all that they are.

I love the word
{be}
and all that it can represent.
A reminder of who I am trying to become.
And the qualities I hope to one day have.

{be}
...prayerful
...hopeful
...good
...grateful
...still
 ...patient

and, oh, so many more ;)
today, what are you trying to 
{be}

And, oh, by the way,
if you are looking for a yummy Sunday morning breakfast,
here's a new recipe for you to try.
We served it today.
And it was oh, so good!

Baked French Toast
1 loaf french bread, cut in 1" slices and cubed
8 eggs, beaten
2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. half & half
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 c. butter or margarine
1 1/3 c. brown sugar
3 Tbs. light corn syrup

Grease a 9x13 pan.  Arrange bread in the pan.  In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, half & half, vanilla and cinnamon.  Pour over bread.  Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup.  Heat until boiling.  Pour over bread and egg mixture.  Bake, uncovered for 40 minutes.  Enjoy!
