#Lent: Putting Love In (all we do)

One major lesson Blogger Virginia learned during years of care-giving: how I did what I did mattered. Putting love in made a big difference to my parents (and to me) whether it was something important or a messy arduous task (especially those kinds.) As the cook, I also prayed about what I made, too – it was something that gave Papa & Mama joy.

Something to think about on this Lenten Sunday.

“The important thing is not how much we accomplish, but how much love we put into our deeds every day. That is the measure of our love for God.”   Mother Teresa

How much love are we putting in what we do?

grace, peace & LOVE

    Ah yes, memories of the orange marmalade cake I made last Super Bowl Sunday due to your inspiration! Thanks for the reminder to do things with love in the forefront.

      So glad you tried this cake, Tim. It’s really moist & yum. I haven’t made it much since Mama passed – there’s a vegan Italian wedding cake that has my nieces requests @ recent holidays. Blessings & hugs! 🌟💜🍰💜🌟

      Mother Teresa has been one of my heroes for years (& years.) That marmalade cake is pretty amazing – super moist & not too sweet. A great way to celebrate Easter! Blessings & hugs, Arlene! ✨💜🍰💜✨

      Jane, that cake IS moist & delish. Haven’t made it for some time, but now I’m back on vegan wagon for Lent so will just have to savor the memories! Blessings! 🌟🍰🌟
