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Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY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 - February 2020: God's Valentine

This is the second Recent Reflections post of 2020.  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 God's Valentine to us.

When I think about Valentine's Day, I think about those I love and those who love me (including those who have passed away).  I also take time to think about the One Who loved me so much He gave His life for me - Christ.  I don't think I'll ever get over that Someone loved me that much, nor should I.

Years ago, I heard the song "Written in Red" by Janet Paschal for the first time, and I heard it accompanied by a deaf choir.  It was the most moving thing I've ever seen, and it made me really reflect on what Christ did and has done for me.  This Valentine's Day weekend, I wanted to share a video of a children's choir signing as a man sings that song so that you could hear and see it in a similar way to which I first did.  I trust it will touch your heart like it did mine, and that you will truly take a moment to stop and think about how much God loves you.

"Written in Red" by Janet Paschal

In letters of crimson, God wrote His love

On the hillside so long, long ago;
For you and for me Jesus died,
And love's greatest story was told.

I love you, I love you
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, Written in Red

Down through the ages, God wrote His love

With the same hands that suffered and bled;
Giving all that He had to give,
A message so easily read.

I love you, I love you,
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you...

Oh, precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood,
The blood of Jesus.

I love you, I love you
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, Written... In Red

Christ is God's Valentine to us.
What will you do with His expression of love?

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!
