I do my own version, not to shabby and a lot less work and calories. 1 electric egg beater.

1- 8 oz fat free cream cheese room temp
1- 8 oz fat free sour cream room temp
1- thawed cool whip, fold in gently, I use the extra creamy since I use fat free or lower fat in the first 2 ingredients.
1 tsp vanilla (TO TASTE or optional)
1-2 tlbs powdered sugar to taste
2 gram cracker crust, because you will fill it.
Freeze 2 hrs, garnish with pie filling, strawberries, etc to your taste.
You can always add 4 squares of German Sweet Chocolate to it..melted of course or chocolate chips.

It is a basic no bake one and you can add to your hearts desire and taste. I drizzle chocolate over the Peanut Butter 1 cup, it always comes back from pot lucks empty.

You can add peanut butter, or other fruits in season to your taste. Let stand 15 mins and cut, you will always have one on hand for company or the next time you crave one, keeps about 30 days in freezer.

A Woman Of Influence

May 13, 2012

During the early years of the Protestant Reformation in Europe, Katharina Von Bora, a former nun, married Martin Luther (1525). By all accounts, the two had a joyous married life. Luther said, “There is no bond on earth so sweet, nor any separation so bitter, as that which occurs in a good marriage.”

Because Katharina rose at 4 a.m. to care for her responsibilities, Luther referred to her as the “morning star of Wittenberg.” She was industrious in tending the vegetable garden and orchard. Also, she administered the family business and managed the Luthers’ home and property. In time, the couple had six children for whom Katharina felt the home was a school of character development. Her energetic industry and care for the family made her a woman of influence.

Katharina seems to have been a woman like the one described in Proverbs 31. She was indeed a virtuous wife who awoke “while it [was] yet night” and provided “food for her household” (v.15). She also watched “over the ways of her household, and [did] not eat the bread of idleness” (v.27).

From role models like Katharina, we can learn about the love, diligence, and fear of the Lord that’s needed to be a woman of influence.

Lord, thank You for the influence our mothers and wives
have had on us. We too want to touch the lives of
others, to point them to You. We know we need Your
Spirit’s power to do that. Fill us and use us, we pray.
Good mothers not only tell us how to live— they show us.

Read: Proverbs 31:10-31

She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. —Proverbs 31:27
Bible in a Year:
Esther 8-10

Thank you and Amen to your wonderful devotion.
Wishing you and Mrs Mayor a beautiful Mother's Day.

Hi Meg! There was only one image, but perhaps there are some html code that got left on the page...My bad...Sorry.

Isn’t Ultrasound WONDERFUL? I know expectant Mothers (and Dads too) who carry those pics around in their wallets like Baby Pictures! :-)

It is indeed wonderful...Texas has a law now that all mothers to be requesting an abortion must first have an ultrasound done..Seeing a baby might give pause...It is the prayer and hope.
