Encouraging Verses

I needed these verses and a cup of tea today.

I needed these verses and a few cups of tea today.

I needed these verses today and thought I’d post them here just in case somebody else needed them too.

Philippians 4:6-7 ESV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:28 ESV

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Thank you Lord for this day.  LNF, Grace


Rosemary & Lemon Water

I got hooked on this summer refresher by reading café reviews for our little coastal town. It seems there used to be a ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ type café here that was known for its delicious Rosemary & Lemon Water.

I can’t garden as much as I used to since we now live right on the water. There’s just no space. But I do have a big mosaic pot of herbs by the front door. Rosemary seems to love our Mediterranean type weather. My shrub is doing quite well in the pot along with various other herbs and a small Meyer lemon tree. So I’ve got all the ingredients for this wonderful refreshing drink. Here’s the easy recipe.

Just fill a pitcher with ice, cut a lemon into half moons and remove seeds, squeeze each lemon piece onto ice before dropping in (I typically use about 3/4 of a lemon), fill pitcher with water, and add two sprigs of fresh rosemary. It’s tastier if you give the rosemary a little time to infuse itself into the water by letting the pitcher sit in the fridge for about 1/2 hour before serving.

You can serve it half and half with sparkling water too. That makes a very nice sipper to sit and watch the sun set with. LNF- Grace

My latest Medieval, Magpie’s Masque is available today! I love the series, The ChristKeepers. And this book is the third installment. It is the love story of Rafael and Magpie.

If you’ve read the previous two novels, Mercy’s Heart [which is on sale for a few more days] and Faith’s Keys you know I’m all about strong heroes and heroines who share loads of romantic chemistry.

Along with the heartwarming love story, this novel is all about forgiveness. And of course, all my stories feature strong elements of faith and spiritual regeneration.

Many thanks to all the folks who pre-ordered this new novel. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it! Here’s a link so you can buy Magpie’s Masque.  LNF, Grace
