“Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay!”
“(ba)nana? Nana?! NANA?! Milk? Milk?! (avo)Cado? Cado?! NANA?!”
“Eat? Eat?! EAT?!”
earnestly I seek you;
and beheld your power and your glory.
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Try one of these ideas:
- Go to your pantry and pull some food out that you can donate.
- Double your dinner recipe and bring the other half to your neighbor or a friend, even if they didn’t ask. Surprise them!
- Make or buy dinner for another young mom. Just so she doesn’t have to buy or make dinner for herself.
- Drop off a latte, frozen yogurt, smoothie or other quick treat. Just because!
*** EASY Amish Friendship Bread *** (flavored with 10 days of prayer)
Have you ever heard of Amish Friendship Bread? It’s tasty and warm. It requires a “starter” that you have in a bag for 10 days before baking. Not much work or even a lot of ingredients, but a lot of prayer can be poured into that bread over 10 days! Here’s the recipe for the starter (found at Friendship Bread Kitchen:
(Click here for printable version)
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes.
- In a 2 quart glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix thoroughly or flour will lump when milk is added.
- Slowly stir in 1 cup milk and dissolved yeast mixture.
- Cover loosely and let stand at room temperature until bubbly. Consider this day 1 of the 10 day cycle. For the next 10 days handle starter according to the instructions for Amish Friendship Bread.
You can also sing over the bread! WHAT?! (Or at least dance around while you pray.) Yep, my favorite Seeds Family Music has a song for Psalm 63. So you can sing and pray that your friends seek God and know him, that their hunger and thirst is quenched by Him, as you sing (and memorize) this scripture.
