What's for Dinner Wednesday~

My daughter found this recipe for Black Bean Jalapeno Poppers while searching pinterest, and while it is meant to be an appetizer we halved the recipe and served it alongside chicken breasts sprinkled with Denny Mike's Chick Magnet seasoning blend (found at Whole Foods).

They were super easy to make and were quite delicious.  Great for an appetizer or side dish. And, much healthier than the traditionally fried version.

The recipe can be found here.

Reflections for the Impending School Year~

In no particular order...

Spend them wisely!

Love this quote from Winnie the Pooh.


and AMEN!!!

And, all the teachers say AMEN!!!

Mom's of teenagers can relate!

Ain't that the truth.

More truth.

By the grace of God!

Hang in there all you first timers!!

Remember to pray for your children's teachers, they often spend more time with your child on a daily basis than you do!

While I am now a mom of a high school teacher and one starting graduate school in just a few weeks, I sooooo remember those first day jitters.  My prayer is that you and your child will have a great start to the new school year.  Hard to believe it is just a week away for some in our home state of Georgia!!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Thanking our Heavenly Father that He was indeed with our oldest daughter 3 weeks ago.  I want to thank you all for your heartfelt prayers and concern after her horrific car accident.  God was surely watching over our baby girl that night, as her truck (a Hummer) was a mangled mess, yet she was able to walk away on her own accord.  She is on the mend, and we thank Him every day for surrounding her with angels both here on earth and in Heaven that evening.  Those who risked their own lives on that dark stretch of highway that night to make sure she was okay and brought to safety we will forever be grateful to.

Just a reminder to hug those you cherish and tell them you love them!  She had just left our house after spending the evening with us, and was headed home to her apartment.  We never thought we would receive "that" phone call.  Our days are not guaranteed here on earth, spend them wisely.
