Jesus, All for Jesus

Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.
Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be. 

All of my ambitions, hopes and plans
I surrender these into Your hands.
All of my ambitions, hopes and plans
I surrender these into Your hands. 

For it's only in Your will that I am free,
For it's only in Your will that I am free,
Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cake

This isn't the most healthy dessert, to be honest  with you I think I have given up on trying to make desserts healthy.  I love to try to eat as healthy as possible, but when it comes to dessert I am a bad bad momma:)  So if you want to be bad with me you MUST give this cake a try.. Plus if you like any thing heirloom I think this fits in that category (Its says Old Fashioned in the title doesn't it?) :)

Growing Tomatoes & Dr. Earth

I'm still pretty new to gardening and VERY new to growing my own tomatoes.  I bought some tomato starts from a lady at my local Gardening Fair she grows every thing organically.  Her tomato starts are seriously amazing, the stocks are soo thick.  She said she never needs tomato cages or any support.  I tried to rack her brain of any advice for growing tomatoes, and some of her advice was to use fertilizer often, she said the ratio she preferred was 5-7-3, or basically any ORGANIC tomato/vegetable fertilizer should work. 

Some good friends had the most amazing cherry tomato plant, it was seriously a huge bush of thousands of beautiful bright red cherry tomatoes, it was the biggest bush of tomatoes I have ever seen, seriously! They are BIG fans of  Dr. Earth Fertilizer, so I bought a bag of Dr. Earth Organic 5 - Tomato, Vegetable, & Herb Fertilizer.  So we shall see how it works.  What Organic fertilizers have worked best for you????  And I would love more tomato growing advice:)

Thank You Lord I Get To Be A Momma

Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into its soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her.~ J.R. Miller, Homemaking

Natural Remedy For Sunburns

My little Chloe girl got a sunburn on her back and booty:(  Yeah, I know not a good spot to burn.  So I looked up remedies for sunburns at Earth Clinic and I found great reviews for Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (EVCO) for sunburns.  So first we applied the ACV (she didn't  like that too much), then once the ACV dried we applied the (EVCO).  The next day she was still red but the pain was completely gone, and she never peeled or complained about it again:)
