Wow! Today was a ROUGH day at home. Definitely not the perfect day to start a series on thankfulness. But scripture tells us:
Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
So, what am I thankful for in a day filled with whiny children, chores, and my hubby working a LATE night…
My MeMaw’s Hot Cocoa!
Tonight it brought a smile to my face to introduce this childhood staple to my children.
Orelle’s Homemade Hot Cocoa
4 cups water
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
6 tablespoons sugar (more or less to your taste, but 6 is not sweet)
1 can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix together in a pot, heat till warm and enjoy!!
Be blessed & thankful!
