Tiny And Yet Complete...

Now, you all know me well enough by now to know that this post;
"Will not just be about cupcakes"

A lesson learned is a powerful thing...
How do we learn?

By living our days in such a way that we are teachable and not stiff necked!

If you know everything, then just stop reading now;
As I do not want to waste your time (smile)

I have been graced to be in a learning curve my whole life;
I am not ashamed to ask for clarification in any given moment.
I do think one very valuable lesson is that we cannot read each others minds!

What grace and room abounds when we realize this and respond correctly.

That is why being a good student of the word and life is so valuable.

You have all heard this phrase;
How do we eat an elephant?
Well, one bite at a time...

This is how we can become wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove!

Learning comes in teeny tiny bite's

May I ask you this question?
What have you learned recently?

I find as I enjoy other sister's in the Lord, and glean from their wonderful tips and advice,
Then I am able to pick up and assimilate some really great things...
When a sister in Christ shares something that they do or they show me a technique,
that they use in their lives and in their homemaking, it always inspires me.

I have found that even changing one little thing can make something seem new
And also appealing to our senses and atmosphere!

I have enjoyed baking most my life;
But there are times that just making one big sheet cake is just too much.
So I have enjoyed making a smaller version of the cake into of course;
Cupcakes...

We all enjoy something sweet as a treat at times,
So I have been making these cupcakes!

You can make a healthy version from scratch, or a boxed cake mix.
The frosting can be the sweet touch, but the sprinkles make them pretty.

I have often seen children just want a certain doughnut in a display case,
Just because of the sprinkles.

I did make some german chocolate ones a few weeks back, 
Of course the frosting is what makes them so yummy!
I used coconut and pecans in it and it was delicious.

  2. This is a very "sweet" post! I am on a new journey within my homeschooling group and learning new things can be hard for some. I learned to let things go and let God be God. Another thing is not all things appear to be what they seem..
    Keep the caution light on. Pray often and enjoy the little sweet moments
    And I love cupcakes!
    I hope you have a great week! Thanks for adding my blog link too! That was very nice! Hugs, Amy

  5. Sweet Roxy, I am certainly learning and growing in my walk with the Lord. He has been opening and closing doors for my husband and I, and we are beginning a new adventure in the next weeks. I'll be sure to email you soon with details. It's going to be a good thing! And one of the reasons I have been so absent from blogging, other than trying to fulfill some reviewing obligations.

    Your cupcakes look delicious!
    Love & hugs, my friend!

  8. We should write down the little things we learn each day so we don't have to relearn them over and over again. No, this post certainly not all about cupcakes. So like you, Roxy! Thank you for what sounds like a delicious frosting recipe.
