So, I first I gave up sweet tea, which is like saying I gave up breathing. After a couple of months of waiting to see if I could keep it up without passing out, I then gave up sugar in my morning cuppa. Yes, now I put Truvia in my Irish Breakfast Tea. It's not as enjoyable, but hopefully I'll get used to it. Baby steps, people, baby steps ...
Now, time to widen my horizons. What kind of treat can I have that not only does not have sugar but limits flour?
I found a keeper!
Flourless chocolate chip muffins! Using just 5 ingredients - none of which are sugar or flour - you can make a yummy treat for your family.
It's the pièce de résistance (murmured in your best French accent) to your meal, if you will. One that you can feel good about feeding your family. And one that is fun to make because you use your blender!

Even better than being flourless is being fearless.
Face it, today's world is enough to give one nightmares. (Why DO people listen to the news right before bedtime? Seems like a recipe for night terrors for sure ...) It is a scary world we live in, but as a believer, we know that a fearful disposition does not come from God.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
If you are bothered with fearful spirit, know it is not from God. Rebuke fear and dwell on the power and love God has given you - along with a sound mind. A calm self-controlled mind.
Wouldn't the One who gave His life for you want to give you these gifts? Be assured - God's got this!
