If you have ever raised cattle or any form of livestock, you more than likely have hunted down and chased after a wondering stray! If you have had livestock, you may have not only chased a wandering stray, but you also had to go after a full blown runaway at full speed.
I can see God doing just this in our lives!
I have wondered off the path so many times in my life. I have ran away at full speed, from God and His call on my life. God has always went after me. Sometimes God has just had to go after me with a little nudge or direction for me to get back on the path He had for me. There have been many times God has had to run after me at full speed and get ahead of me! He had to wave His arms in front of me to get me to stop and return to my path.
Check out this video! This has been me for sure lol
Psalm 23:6The Message (MSG)
6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.
His BEAUTY and His LOVE chase after you!
Maybe it’s time we measure all things in our life with His kind of love!
New International Version
“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?
Are we chasing after the strays and pursuing them with Gods love? Or are we driving them further away with our judgment and ridiculing?
Here is another thought for all the single ladies out there! Do you SEE the Fathers Love? He gave His only son to chase you down and make you His own!!! So is that man your chasing after chasing you down with Gods love????
Are we chasing our loved ones down with Gods pursuing love? Are we making sure they don’t wonder off the path with out being covered in prayer and unconditional love?
Let’s love one another back into the Kingdom and family of God!!
He’s still in the mending business and He is always pursuing you!!!

Today’s Featured #HolidayDessert #Recipe by Becky GilmanVELVEETA FUDGE
1/2 pound Velveeta cheese, sliced
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts, pecans, walnuts
2 (16-ounce) boxes confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
Spray lightly the bottom of a 9 by 2-inch square pan with a nonstick spray. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the cheese and butter together, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and add the vanilla and nuts. In a large bowl sift together the sugar and cocoa. Pour the cheese mixture into the sugar and cocoa mixture and stir until completely mixed. The candy will be very stiff. Using your hands, remove candy from bowl and press evenly and firmly into pan. Because of the amount of butter in this recipe, pat the top of the candy with a paper towel to remove the excess oil. Place pan in refrigerator until candy is firm. To serve candy, cut into squares.
I have to admit when my mom said she made Fudge out if cheese I was not impressed. Then oh then when I slowly bit into a piece, well let’s say the fudge started disappearing fast lol

I have skipped a few days because I am needing some recipe submissions lol but todays featured #HolidayDessert #Recipe is by Kelly Hutchinson. Kelly shared this treat with me last year and we had a great time in the kitchen making these.CHOCOLATE COVERED CRANBERRIES
It Just takes a package of whatever favorite flavor of chocolate you like and one package of fresh cranberries.
Melt your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and then take a few cranberries at a time and put in chocolate once covered take and drop by spoon onto wax paper to set up.
These are great to make ahead of time and freeze them for later. I personally like eating them straight out of the freezer.
