Quiet Moments...

'QUIET MOMENTS'... something I've longed for these past few weeks_ moments I can JUST sit & ponder on the possibilities of one's life_ the DREAMS that can be filled in short moments of time, but can take a lifetime as well.  The decision's that have to be made are determined during those... 'QUIET MOMENTS'.

I have to say... ALOT of tea has been consumed during those 'QUIET MOMENTS' & has helped in keeping me CALM & STILL to hear the words my Heavenly Father has spoken to me.

All you have to do
is decide what to do
with the time that is given you.
~ J. R. R. Tolkien

And you shall seek Me and
find Me when you shall search
for Me with all your heart
Jeremiah 29:13

WELL... this is JUST a glimpse of what's to come in the near future for Beehind Thyme, I've been holding out for sometime now & GOODNESS has it been tough. PLEASE... bare with the video, this version here on YouTube is UNEDITED, but I assure you it's in the process of being edited by Arlena Schott host & producer of GARDEN WISE LIVING TV. I will have my final cut this upcoming Sunday which will be airing on many channels throughout the United States & Canada in the near future. I'm VERY excited about what's happening here at Beehind Thyme & my hope is that you will ENJOY! You may want to scroll down & turn off the auto music before starting the video...

Christmas Kindness...

A couple of weeks back, I was bundling ROSEMARY almost in an assembly line pattern, unfortunately I was the ONLY one on that assembly line, which of course, made things run alittle slower, BUT they all got completed & was MERRILY on their way to a SWEET Nursing Home in a nearby county. Oh, how I wish I could be there to see the faces of the elder ENJOYING the sight & smell of FRESH ROSEMARY at Christmas time.  Much KINDNESS is shown in such SIMPLE ways my friends.

There are no great things,
only small things with great love,
Happy are those.
~Mother Teresa

FINALLY... I'm here to share this WONDERFUL recipe, that I had promised over on FACEBOOK.  I've been towing somewhat behind the last few days, especially since we went away this past weekend... I NOW have to play catch up!

The first time I baked this... MANDARIN ORANGE CAKE was for one of our 'WINTER HOME GATHERINGS' & I have to say... IT WAS A HIT & now I want to share it with YOU!

So go tie on an apron & gather your ingredients...

'Mandarin Orange Cake'

4 Eggs
1 Lg Can of Mandarin Oranges WITH Juice
1 Lg Pkg of Instant Vanilla Pudding
