I am so sorry it has been so long. We just sold our house and living out of suitcases right now. It has been a crazy couple of weeks. We aren’t settled in our new place yet so we are living with our neighbors for the moment.

We are having a blast. It is so fun to hang out and have someone around all the time to talk with or just sit on the couch and do nothing together. We are so blessed to have friends that will let us invade their house for the week.
While going through my bible reading, I am always reading through the book of Acts and learning how the body of Christ functions. I am getting a glimpse of it now while we are living with our neighbors. It is great to be able to help each other out when needed. We are sharing everything, taking turns with the kids, and enjoying lots of fellowship! It is so fun! God is showing me daily how blessed we are to have friends that would open up their home to us. That is true friendship, a real neighbor (this friend is the one I wrote the neighbor post about, click to here to read).
Find some friends that you can truly do life with. Invite them over, play games, cook dinner together and share your lives with each other. We are called to fellowship with one another and I know that God will bless those friendships! If you don’t have anyone out there to “do life with” go out and find someone. Go to church and meet people, get on your knees and ask God to bring those friends into your life.
Once you meet someone, invite them over for dessert and play some games. Games are a great way to get to know people. Mad Gab, Apples to Apples (I like jr. the best), or Phase 10 are some great recommendations. An easy dessert that everyone loves and is very inexpensive to make is called Sopapilla Cheesecake.

These sweeties puff like sopapillas and are great for breakfast or as a change from coffeecake! Cinnamon sugar can be made by combining 1 cup sugar to 2 TBS cinnamon.
