I Am Finally Free

He is so wonderfully mindful of us. He is so wonderfully caring towards us. This world claws for our attention with such rapt force we are often left blurry eyed, head spinning. It is a frightful & almost chilled feeling that washes over me when I think how easily I am swayed by what I want. How my heart cries for the temporal to satisfy, instead of the everlasting to nourish & glorify. Life truly is a vapor; fire & paper. We have but a moment. So many of these precious moments I have wasted.
If the Son has set us free, then we must be free indeed, let the chains fall away, starting today, everything has changed, I am finally free. – Finally Free, Nicole Nordeman
The words penned above are from a song I have been trying to sing in church for the last month.

Chocolate Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits

I have adapted these from a Whole Wheat Biscuit recipe, in fact, I have made cheddar, pumpkin, & sweet potato biscuits from this one recipe, so very adaptable...

You can use butter & milk of your choice, including buttermilk!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup Earth Balance Nut Butter
1 cup organic Soy Milk

Combine dry ingredients. Soften butter...about 20 seconds in microwave & combine to dry until it becomes a crumb consistency. Make a well & combine milk. You will need a little more than a cup of milk! Not quite a 4th of a cup. Just eyeball it. The dough needs to be very moist (wetter than normal drop biscuits), but not soupy.

Preheat an oven to 425 degrees.

Spray a cake pan with non-stick spray & drop biscuits into pan with a large tablespoon (about 2 tablespoons for each biscuit)...makes around 7 or 8 biscuits.

Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes depending on your oven…
