For Tuesday, July 10th, 2018
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
There is no love sincerer love than the love of food.
George Bernard Shaw
I just happen to have blueberries and limes in the fridge right now and I found a wonderful recipe to share today that uses both. I got a bag of limes because they were cheaper than lemons last time I went to the store and have been using them in a lot of different ways.
4 c. blueberries
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 lime, tested
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. oats
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 lime, tested
Combine the blueberries, sugar and zest of one lime. Pour into a 2 qt. casserole dish.
Combine the sugar with flour oats, butter and zest of lime. Mix until butter is incorporated and mixture becomes like crumbs.
Spread over blueberries, pressing until it becomes firm.
Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.
Serve with a spoonful of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy !
Limeade is every bit as refreshing as lemonade is and I made a pitcher to enjoy yesterday. There are many ways to use limes.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
