Hold on to Hope

Spring usually reminds us of new beginnings as we look forward to warmer weather and blooming flowers. Right now, life looks so different as we deal with challenges that are changing the way we live. I saw a quote today that read, “Hope is stronger than fear.” Let’s not be discouraged or fearful in the days ahead, but hold on to hope!

We…can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. HEBREWS 6:18 NLT

Red Velvet M&Ms Bars

You’ve probably heard of cookie exchanges…they happen quite a bit around Christmastime. Well, how about a Valentine cookie exchange? I was invited to one a few years ago and it was great! It’s always fun to make (and eat) Valentine-themed treats!  I was a little short on time, so I needed to make something fairly easy, but still wanted it to be very yummy. I had seen lots of recipes for cake mix bars and cookies, so I thought I’d come up with my own version of Red Velvet bars made with cake mix. Any Red Velvet recipe seems appropriate for Valentine’s Day, right? Continue reading
