Eggplant cuit au four

I baked another eggplant for dinner. I seasoned it only with salt and pepper - so good! The thinner part of the fruit resembles chicken in its textures - makes me wonder if I can season it so that my meat eating friends might be fooled...


Step 1: stab eggplant many times


Step 2: create foil cradle for eggplant; bake in oven for 45 minutes @ 400degrees


step 3: split it open and scoop out the insides


step 4: enjoy!! (with seasonings if desired)


Quite delicious and filling I think.

Christ, Savior

This evening's Bible study triumphantly and amazingly changed my life. I knew Christ was my Savior. I knew the Bible quite well, but in the last few months, I was REALLY studying and finding consistent support for God and His Son even though I was arguing about the details and translations, etc. I had been studying that a person had to have a heart changing miracle to become a believer in God. Even though I had faith in God, I could not place a time in my life that I had a heart changing miracle. I was praying that I would have that miracle. I'd been reading the memory verses from CedarCreek posted in my cubicle wall multiple times daily.  The heart had to transform from a heart of stubbornness to a heart of flesh, wanting to be obedient to God. 


Tonight hit home, hard. John 8, Matthew 27:50 to the end clinched it, and I broke down. The Spirit had been gifting me with the wisdom of the word of God in the last few weeks and God had taken this time to show me fully that He loves me and I am in His hands forever. Wow.
