Dear God Note 8

Adorned From Above / Dear God Note 8 / Dear God, You are so faithful.  I  pray for my family, and I am so grateful when you answer my prayers.  When I see the fruition of my prayers, I know you are there.  Today I just want to thank you. Debi

I wrote this and was looking for Bible verses about knowing God, but then I remembered there was a song, So I looked it up on Google and found it. 


Here are a few of the words.

Cause I, I know You're there, I know You see me
You're the air I breathe, You are the ground beneath me
I know You're there, I know You hear me
I can find You anywhere


I hope that you enjoy the video.

Have a blessed day.

Jasmine Face Wash and Ingredients
Now on to my favorite natural Jasmine Face and Body Wash Recipe.

I started making this face wash in February, and it is a great all purpose face wash.  It even removes makeup.  I was looking for something simple and natural, since I have skin allergies.  I also wanted something that did not have chemicals.  I looked at many recipes, and eventually decided to just make something that would clean my face and still moisturize my skin a little. It also works great as a body wash.

Jasmine Natural Face and Body Wash

8 oz Dr. Bonner's Baby-Mild Castille Soap
8 oz distilled water
1 TB Almond oil
20 drops jasmine fragrance
10 drops geranium essential oil

Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.  Then pour into a pump bottle.

Rinse face with water and then use 1 squirt of face wash and start washing face.   I wash my face for approximately 1 minute, concentrating around my nose, chin, and forehead, then rinse well.

You can use a toner after if you like to close your pores, and then moisturize.  You can use my Anti-Aging Moisturizer.  The link is below.

Hot Spiced Cider with Spice Syrup for Friday's Happy Hour


Today I am sharing a very simple Hot Spiced Cider Recipe made with my spice syrup recipe that I shared with all of you last Friday.  The minute I saw the recipe for spice syrup knew that I wanted to try it in a Hot Apple Cider recipe.  It did not let me down.  This hot spiced cider recipe could not taste any better, and it is so simple to make.  You don't have to cook it for hours, the syrup adds just the right amount of spice flavors to the cider and it's not too sweet.  It was actually perfect.  I know that all of you are going to love it too.  It will be a great fall and winter treat when you  and your families come in from outside.  It will certainly warm all of you up.


Hot Spiced Cider with Spice Syrup

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups of apple cider
1/4 cup spice syrup

Directions:

Put the apple cider in a pan or measuring cup.

Add the spice syrup and stir until combined.

Heat in a pan on the stove or in the microwave.  I heated mine for 1 minute in the microwave.

Makes 2 7 oz glasses of spiced cider.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe as we did.  I always love hearing from you.

Have a great weekend.

Sheinside Sale

Sponsored

I just became an affiliate for this clothing company called SheInside.com, and I am pretty excited to share them with all of you. 

I was shopping for lightweight sweaters about 2 weeks ago and found this company had really cute clothing, and they were very inexpensive.  I was not an affiliate for them at that time, and actually had never heard of them before.  I like the clothes so much that I decided I wanted to be an affiliate for them, and found that they were part of shareasale.com, so I didn't even have to work too hard at finding them.  I am pretty excited.

Here are a few of the items that I ordered.


White Long Sleeve Cross Rhinestone Knit Sweater
 Isn't it cute.  I can't wait for a cool day to wear it.  It's out of stock, but they have tons of sweaters available.

I also ordered this sweater with the lace at the bottom.

White Long Sleeve Lace Knit Loose Sweater for $22.16

I am a sucker for lace.  I think this will look really cute with a pencil skirt and boots, or skinny jeans and flats.

Anyway, I just wanted to introduce this company to all of you, and maybe get you thinking about some cute fall and winter clothes.  They have so much, and the prices are very reasonable.  I know you are going to love them as much as I do.

I have put the picture at the top of the post with a code for 25% off sweaters.  They also offer Free Shipping Worldwide at SheInside for orders over $30, so that should help also.

Have a great weekend, and have fun shopping.

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Cinnamon Roll Waffles from Adorned From Above - Ingredients: Grands Cinnamon Rolls, Butter,  Directions:  Heat up your waffle iron.  Using a pastry brush, brush some melted butter in the bottom of the waffle iron.  Place your cinnamon roll in the center of the waffle iron and then brush the top of the cinnamon roll with butter.  Push the top of the waffle iron down, and you may have to hold it in place for a minute, because the cinnamon roll will want to expand and push the top up.  You want it to be flat.  Cook it as you would a waffle and remove it when it is done.  My waffle iron has a light that goes off when it is done.  Remove the waffle from the waffle iron and brush with more melted butter.  Then spread some of the cinnamon roll frosting on top of the waffle.  I did this once I had the next waffle in the waffle iron.  Repeat this process for the rest of the waffles.  This makes 5 Cinnamon Roll Waffles with the Grands.

Today we have Cinnamon Roll Waffles for breakfast, and boy are they amazing.  I have been on a kick with my waffle iron lately and I am so excited to share some fun recipes with you.  I am also excited because I have never been a great waffle maker.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe just no interest, and probably because it takes longer then I care to take making waffles.  I think because I have to make the batter, and then I can only make one at a time.  I guess in some ways I'm kind of a lazy cook and love to find shortcuts.  This is definitely a shortcut.  I saw a picture on Pinterest a couple of months ago of Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, they looked delicious, but it looked like too much work.  Then I came up with the idea of using my waffle iron and Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls.  Now to me that is an easy recipe.  So here it is.
