I am Thankful for the unconditional LOVE of God

For God so loved the world,
that He gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in Him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16
The unfailing love of the Lord
never ends!
By His mercies we have been kept
from complete destruction.l
Lamentations 3:22
His banner over me is
Song of Solomon 2:4

Fall in New York

I grew up in Texas near the Gulf Coast,
so I never experienced Fall until I moved North.
I still marvel at the beauty of the colors every year.
This is one of my favorites times.
The colors are beautiful and you can see God's Work.

I have been gone for awhile. I did not realize it had been so long.
Time really can slip away from you if you are not watchful.
Hopfully I will be able to commit to my blog now.
Grandkids are getting bigger and seems I will have a little more time now.
Looking forward to hooking up with some of my blog friends.

Fall is here and my grandson and I have been making Apple Crisp today.
He is a good little helper.

Here is the recipe

Granny's Apple Crisp
1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon orange zest
¼ cup orange juice
5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into ¼-inch slices

1 cup uncooked old-fashioned oats
2 tablespoons SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, softened
½ cup crisp rice cereal
½ cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with vegetable cooking spray. Set aside.
Make Filling: whisk together SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, cinnamon, orange zest and orange juice in a large bowl; add apples and toss to coat. Transfer mixture to prepared pan; set aside.
Make Topping: stir together oats, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, and cinnamon in a medium bowl; cut butter in with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cereal and walnuts. Spoon topping over apples.
