Spring – don’t you just love what it does for your soul? For how it makes you believe there are opportunities for new beginnings. And for how you can see all of God’s creation in its beauty and in its prime.
It brings so much hope, joy, and peace – and laughter. It’s filled with this beautiful reminder of the new life God has given us through the Gospel. Tomorrow on Easter, we will celebrate this.
We will celebrate with worship of course – but also with fellowship with friends and family. And of course, with fellowship often comes meals – which often leads to dessert - lately I love for this dessert to be Brownie Pie. (Warning: You will want to eat the whole thing – I demolished two pieces right after taking pictures in less than a minute.)
So to help you in your celebrating of Easter – here’s my new favorite recipe. I hope you enjoy it :)
