It's strange really. I am on the verge of some incredibly exciting opportunities. And I can't wait to share them with you. But I can't quite yet.
And maybe that is the problem. I have always struggled to keep exciting news to myself. I want to tell everyone. But for some reason, God has placed several opportunities in my life that I can't tell anyone about.
It is leaving me uninspired. Because how can I talk about the amazing salad that I made the other night when there is this HUGE thing looming? I don't even want to talk to anyone on the phone, because how can I not share openly with the ones I love?
A wise friend reminded me recently that perhaps this is a lesson that our Father wants to teach me. How to be able to bring glory to Him, when I have to keep some things to myself. And learning that there ARE things that I don't need to tell everyone.
I have no trouble keeping a confidence. But when it comes to my own "secrets"? Well, I want to announce them and tell you!
...let me tell you about this amazing salad that I made the other night.
It doesn't have a name. But I think it should! So, I will describe it to you and would love if you would share name ideas in the comments. Because I am banking on the fact that you are more inspired than I currently am!
Hard boiled eggs
Honey Mustard Salad Dressing: (adapted from this recipe)
1/2 cup dijon mustard
3-4 Tbsp. of honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
Whisk all of the ingredients together until silky and smooth.
I don't know if I just didn't whisk long enough, but it never got silky OR smooth. But the taste was amazing!
Gibson helped to make the bread that I served with the salad. His letter for the week last week was "A", so as part of his schooling, we made Amish White Bread. We had a lot of fun making it and this bread is soooo good!
Please share your inspired ideas with me! I need some inspiration. I will also be stalking Pinterest, I think! And I can't wait to tell you all that is going on with me. Until then, come up with a name for my salad!
