that kind of trust (and a recipe)

The fingers of a newborn curled tight around the finger that caresses - that's the kind of grasp I desire when it comes to clinging to my God.

There is trust in the grasp of one freshly sent from heaven for a newborn cannot see clearly but only in part. And I see not clearly but in part.

And I listen for the voice who spoke me into being. I long to nestle into the arms of the One who knit me, to recognize the caresses, the scent, the sound of the One who formed me and never leaves my side. And to live in the grasp of heaven, swaddled in His love.

Most Fridays I'll share recipes aimed at a healthier me, healthier you and a healthier world. First up:


 Why make your own oven fries when you could buy them? 
  • You know exactly what's going in them
  • You can customize them to your taste
  • They're quick and easy to make

Oven Fries
Yukon Gold potatoes (organic are best - potatoes are #12 on the Dirty Dozen list)
Spices (e.g. garlic/onion/chili powder, parsley, oregano, pepper)
Parchment paper
Veggie scrubber

1. Scrub them taters and remove any "eyes"
2. Cut into wedge or traditional fry shape
3. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
4. Sprinkle with your favorite blend of spices
5. Pop in a 375 degree oven and bake until lightly golden on the outside (about 35-45 minutes)
6. Serve warm
Did you notice what was "missing"? 

Salt & oil. You don't need 'em. The spices add the flavors and the parchment paper prevents the fries from sticking.

I came to read about grasp and now my mouth is watering just looking at those delicious fries.

I loved the imagery you opened up with and the thought of clinging to the one who created us!
