Cucumber salad

I recently came up with this recipe while on a strict diet, using up the vegetables in my drawers at the end of the week.  It turns out it has become quite a "hit" around here, as both friends and kids seem to like it; go figure.  So I thought I would share it with you in case these same things are in your refrigerator at the end of the week too. Variations are enjoyable!

Cucumber Salad by Katie Williams

2 large cucumbers-small diced cubes, 1 med. onion-diced, 2 bell peppers-red/orange diced, 1 can artichoke hearts-drained and chopped, 1 radish-minced, 2-3 cloves garlic-pressed, 1 bunch fresh cilantro-chopped, drizzle of olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, salt & pepper to taste.

Mix all ingredients together and chill. Serve over brown rice or quinoa (warm or cold) with sliced hard-boiled egg and avocado.

This has proven to be quite a meal in itself. I hope you like it!

Swinging the sword

How is your battle going?  Are you feeling victorious? Let us join together remembering we are ALL victorious in Christ!  Yes, today I am living in victory under the capable direction of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Surrendered.

Beginning in March, I am setting about to memorize the book of James.  While this is a bit scary and new for me, I feel it is both from the Lord and something for my good. Will you pray for me in this?  I know full well this is going to be a fight! I have been feeling tired in this battle lately, and realize I need to start swinging my sword...His Word.

"James, a bond-servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes who are dispersed abroad: Greetings. 2.Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,3. knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance." NASB James 1:1-3

Are you picking up your weapons today for the fight? Join me!
