God didn't save us to be safe...

Stability...its something we are all looking for! I think especially in todays world, with todays economy. We crave to feel safe in every way: physicially, financially, emotionally. Somewhere in that pursit of feeling safe it can be easy to try to quiet Gods voice though–especially when it call us out of our comfort zones!! I can be scary, its not necessarily stable, and it could seem unsafe. Last week we had a chance to hear from a 10 year old and an 8 year old, Natashsa and Kendall from San Antonio Texas. They have had a heart for the kids of Africa and throughout the last 2 years they have raised enough funds to build a school with an attached chicken coop in Uganda. That is a lot of money and they are just getting started!! They are now raising funds to create a 'children's village' where orphans and widows can call home. Natasha says it better with her 10 years of life wisdom than some of us ever could...

God didn’t save us to be safe but to be dangerous! Think about what he did for us—like the nails in His hands, the crown of thorns—so if he did that for us why sit around on the couch all day and watch tv?! Why not give your life back to him and use it to help other people!!!”

Heart Healthy Valentine's Day and Brownies Recipe!

Christine’s suggestions for a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day Dinner

1) Lean protein such as grilled beef tenderloin (the leanest cut of beef).

2) Quinoa with artichoke hearts and fresh parsley. Quinoa is a staple of the ancient Incas and means “the mother grain”. It’s high in iron and loaded with fiber (4 gm per ½ cup).

3) A small glass of seltzer water with a splash of pomegranate juice and twist of lime. This is better for you than diet soda or champagne and much more romantic looking to the eye when poured into a wine or champagne glass.

4) Chocolate raspberry brownies. These are my newest creation and are beyond blissful…they are chewy, gooey, chocolately with a unique burst of tart raspberry…so unique and heart healthy.

For our anniversary one year my husband wrote a song for me as a gift and I love the song to this day.  Even though it wasn't for Valentines Day it was a romantic thing to do.  He dosen't think that his singing voice is good (I do) but I guess that I think whatever he does is good.  What I'm trying to say is even if you can't sing write out your feelings for the one you love and and try to put them to music by using a guitar or even just back-ground music from any song. I still the song Rob wrote for me 20+years ago.  You don't have to be a song writer or a good singer to tell someone how much you love them in a song.
