A Galactic Valentine Rose

HaPpY Valentine’s Day! Today doesn’t have to be about sweet tarts and mushy sentiment, but LOVE – the mystical, overwhelming amazing kind.

Like this Heavenly galactic rose….

Here’s one of my favorite quotes about love posted here in one of my first blogs 8 1/2 years ago…

“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, in falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.  It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”   Pedro Arrupe, S.J.


grace, peace & LOVE

    Great all-inclusive quote, V!
    Sorry about your being under the weather.
    Speaking of love, (okay, a bit of a stretch), I ordered from Amazon two bags of White Lily. I was spurred by this interesting article…

      Great article, Tim. I grew up baking biscuits with White Lily flour. It does make a big difference, but I didn’t know about the soft wheat vs. hard. I’ve also used White Lily for cake recipes that turn out delish (sometimes split 1/2 cake flour with WL.) Let me know how your biscuits turn out. I’ve also been using an organic Arrowhead flour that’s also light, great for muffins et all. Baking blessings!! 🧁😎🧁

      Hey GH, I had to hold off on the chocolate due to a bad cough, but made up for it this week (dark chocolate with raspberries + decadent chocolate ice cream!) Galactic rose blessings to you!🍫 🌟🌹🌟🍫
