I want to share a little about Chapter 3 in my Finally Free bible study I am reading. It starts out, "How long has it been since you had a really good belly laugh?....and the paragraph ends with "Where did our joy go?" ---- She goes to explain that the act of enjoyment is important because it helps us to become more grateful & keeps us from complaining and falling into the trap of criticizing others & ourselves. --- I'm personally learning from that to stop (even mid sentence) if I have to & turn my conversation around. I must discipline my own mouth and keep on the good as often as possible. It truly keeps my spirit up and those around me. Even my friend Kim Nix has got caught in my transition of talking negative to switching over to the good. So far, my awareness of it and action of changing it seems to be working.

Prep: 20 mins. Cook: 25 minutes Makes 4 servings
2 tsps. olive oil
2 cups onion, thinly sliced
3 cups (12 ozs.) kale, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup cooked potato, diced
1 medium (1 cup) peeled tomato, diced
1 ½ cups fat-free egg substitute
1 cup (3 ozs.) reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, grated
½ cup tomato paste
¼ cup ham, cut in thin strips (optional)
½ tsp. black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste
Salt to taste (optional)
In a 10 inch, non-stick, ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, 7-8 minutes. Add kale and garlic and cook, until kale is wilted. Tilt pan, so oil covers sides. Add potatoes and tomatoes and toss gently.
In a small bowl, stir together egg, cheese, tomato paste, ham (if using), pepper, and salt (if using), until well combined.
Add egg mixture to hot skillet, and smooth with a spatula. Continue cooking 5-6 minutes, until egg is almost set, lifting sides of frittata, to allow raw egg to run underneath.
Place skillet under broiler to finish cooking, 4-5 minutes. Slide frittata out onto plate, cut into wedges, and serve. Makes 4 servings.

Thought I would share a little about Chapter 2 of my Finally Free bible study I am doing. I cannot tell you how many times I've prayed this prayer over my own life. God really set me free years ago from many things and somehow 19 years later I had found myself in a place of bondage again. Fear, anxiety and sickness had almost got the best of me.....but GOD!!!! God is my deliverer and he is your deliverer too. Don't give up; don't throw in the towel. Keep pressing in. Ask others to pray for you because what God promises he delivers. I will share more about my health in another post but know this God keeps his promises and they are yes and amen!!! Webster defines restoration as the act of bringing back to original condition. Yes Lord, restore us!
So, I finally was able to start having Stampin' Up Card classes in my home last month. We are having them once a month and the ladies are loving it so far. I've been making cards for about 4 years now. I'm really happy my friends & family can come out and enjoy making cards too. We make 3 different designs & 5 cards each. Each lady pays $15 dollars for 14 cards. It is a time to concentrate and focus on something else instead of the hassles of the day and to me very therapeutic as well. Eventually, I would like to join up in selling Stampin' Up products. Let me know if any of you are Stampin' Up ladies or "card" ladies at all. I would love to hear what all you do. Whether it be making cards or playing cards.....how do you spend time with friends? ---- These are the cards they will be making this Saturday morning. The tea-riffic card can be a Mother's Day card if they like. --- I'll post a few more pictures below so you can see the ladies at work.
