Do For Me More

O God,
I praise Thee for the happy moment
when I first saw Christ.
Wrath appeased, death destroyed, sin forgiven,
my soul saved...

I want no other Rock to build upon 
than that I have,
Desire no other hope
than that of gospel truth,
Need no other look
than that which gazes on the cross...

In Him I have all that I can hold,
enlarge me to take in more...

If I am in extremity, 
let me feel that He can deliver me;
If driven to the verge of hope
and to the pit of despair,
grant me grace to fall into His arms.

O God, hear me.
Do for me more
than I ask,
or dream.

Indie Grace WOW-derer

You can just call me "Little Miss Homemaker."

Having a host student has forced me to spend time in the kitchen. I have more misses than hits, but tonight was a definite success. My girl even asked if I'd teach her how to make this particular dish, which...I CREATED ALL BY MYSELF...when none of the recipes I looked at were what I wanted. Miss Indie's own version of Chicken Cheesy Gluten-Free Lasagna. DE-LISH-US!!

In an attempt to be mom-ish, I made sure we had sliced, fresh vegetables and even created...wait for very own Gluten-Free version of shortbread crust over which I spread marscapone cheese and layered with fresh strawberries. I know. Something is going on with Indie Grace. It's scary. What are you up to God?

Oh, and did I mention I'm dehydrating my very own fruit so we can have dried mangoes for snacks? Yep.

And on a totally unrelated note, isn't this little guy cute? He couldn't reach the suet from the outside, so he crawled in through one of the squares and ate it INSIDE the feeder. Clever!

My Life

Just hanging with Mr. Hess's Law and the Thermodynamic Properties of select compounds. Yep, that's my life. Couldn't do it without McDonald's peppery Coca-Cola. Why is Chemistry my minor, again? Feel free to remind me anytime. Oh, I know why. 'Cuz there's a dork in every crowd, buddy, and this time, I'm the dork.
