At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

Recent Reflections - June 2019: Summer

This is the fifth Recent Reflections post of 2019.  Recent Reflections goes live the third Friday or Saturday of each month.  Each Recent Reflections post covers something that I'm reflecting on.  If you'd like to share a post with a similar theme, feel free to leave a comment with a link to your post, and I'll hop on over and leave a comment (and maybe some other readers will, too).

This month, I will be reflecting on summer.

I can hardly believe it is the first day of summer!  Wasn't it just January?  Where has the time gone?  The older I get, the faster time flies.

Summer is a time where most of us get to relax a bit more, be a little lazy, enjoy some gorgeous weather, BBQ a bit, and just breathe a bit easier.  This summer, I want to make it a habit to reflect and enjoy the extra time I have with my kids.  I know they won't be little forever (my oldest will be a Senior next year!), and I want to enjoy these days while I have them.  These days are days to make memories that I (and they) can enjoy for a lifetime.

Later today, my family and I will attend a wedding of our pastor's daughter.  It will be a bittersweet time.  We are so excited for them, but we are a bit sad for us.  We will miss her tremendously, but we know that she is following God's perfect will, so that gives us joy.

If you're reading this, Meghan and Bobby, congratulations!  We love you and wish you all the best as you start your life together as husband and wife!  Such exciting times are ahead of you, and we will be praying for you as you serve the Lord together!  Come visit when you can, and know that you will always have a home here with us at BBCCL!

I truly hope this post has been a blessing to your heart, or at the least made you stop and think a little.  What has God done in your life lately to bless you?  What are you reflecting on?

Have a wonderful weekend!
