When we began Hebrews part 1 the temperatures in August were in the upper 90’s in the afternoon and low 80’s at night with maybe upper 70’s in the mornings. Now, as we conclude our fall session, it’s just cold all the time, at least for this week.
You sisters in the Word just bless me and I am so thankful for each of you. I look forward to Wednesday nights and Thursday mornings because of how you all seem to look forward to getting back together each week to discuss what we see in Scripture, whether it’s in Hebrews or scattered passages dealing with forgiveness.
This morning was especially sweet for me as God laid it on my heart to share a bit of my most recent testimony with you in light of what we were discussing today. I had not intended to do it, but as we were going through the lesson He made it clear that this was a safe place where I could be free to express some of what He’s been teaching me since May (and long before that). So, thank you for listening and then encouraging me afterwards. I wish we had time to hear everybody’s testimony, to testify to God’s faithfulness to each of us in our own lives. If you ever have a hankering to share, let me know and we’ll make a way to brag on God.
To end today’s post on a sweet note, Bonnie M. sent the recipe for the pineapple coffee cake she brought today. Thanks Bonnie! Here it is.
Marie’s Pineapple Crunch Coffee Cake
2 cups flour (plain)
1 teaspoon soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups sugar
¼ cup packed brown sugar
1 can (1 lb. 4 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained (or any fruit)
1 cup chopped walnuts (I used pecans)
Combine flour, soda, salt, sugar and brown sugar. Mix well. Then add pineapple with juice and nuts to the flour/sugar mixture. Mix well. Pour into ungreased 9 x 13 pan. Bake 350 for 35 minutes.
½ cup butter (1 stick)
¼ cup milk
2/3 cup sugar
Melt butter in a small saucepan. Then add the milk and sugar. Stir. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes stirring as needed. Pour over warm cake. Let sit a few minutes while the cake absorbs the icing. Sprinkle with coconut if desired.
