He Is Risen!

The King on a Cross Now as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. Him they compelled to bear His cross. And when they had come to a place called Golgotha, that is to say, Place of a Skull,they gave Him sourwine mingled with gall to drink. But when He had tasted it, He would not drink. Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: “They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.”
Sitting down, they kept watch over Him there. And they put up over His head the accusation written against Him:
Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the left. And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself!

Snowing Again!

More Snow

On Monday it rained. And I heard a few claps of thunder. Today the sky has been gray. Around 3:30pm, it started to rain very lightly. As the temperature dropped, the rain turned to ice, then snow. Yes, it's snowing again in Minnesota. Most of it had melted from the previous warmer days, but now everything is completely covered with white, fluffy snow! Since I took the pictures below, we have gotten a couple more inches. We're supposed to get six to twelve more…

Chocolate "Milkshake"

This is one of my favorite recipes for a milkshake. Technically it's not really a shake since it has no ice-cream in it, but the frozen bananas make it turn into the consistency of one.

Chocolate "Milkshake" Servings: 2-3

1 cup milk2 ripe frozen bananas2 Tbsp cocoa powder2 Tbsp honey

Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend until mixture reaches a smooth consistency (about one minute). Enjoy :)!
