Keto Raspberry Scones

These yummy Keto Raspberry Scones came out so good that I couldn't wait to share them with all of you.  I was going to post this in August, but I broke my ankle, so I have been recuperating for the last 4 months.  I also was not able to get all of the pictures that I wanted to get, but at least you can see what they look like.  I made them along with Spiced Keto Donuts, and Peanut Butter Bread the morning that I broke my ankle, I only got pictures of them cooling off.  I'm still not walking yet, which means I'm also not cooking much yet, so I hope that you will forgive the pictures.

The recipe is easy and the changes that I made to the original recipe from Brian Speaks make it Keto.  These would be great to make for a New Years morning brunch, or, if you're not too worried about your macros you could make them with dried cranberries for an amazing Christmas morning scone.

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. We had a very lovely, warm, and quiet one here in Fort Lauderdale.

I saw a sign that said "Pray" near my home a few weeks ago.  I often see different scripture on this sign, but it felt like Pray was flashing at me.  It wasn't, but God certainly wanted me to notice it on that day.  I have seen so many bad things happen recently, and I just keep praying, because that is all that I have I can do, but this was like a call to action.  This was different, I knew that this sign was a "sign" from God for me to write about.  Then, last week, on our morning prayer line my pastor was talking about some of the things happening in the world, and what came to my mind were these verses in Job 2.

Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord And the Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?”
Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”
Job 2:1-2 NKJV

We don't often think about verses like this, but this is really important!  The sons of God are the fallen angels who followed Satan and were kicked out of Heaven, never to live with God again.  They are wandering the earth, going to and fro, back and forth.  They create chaos, and their mission is to turn as many people away from God as possible.  Not just turn away, but not allow them the chance to find God, to reach Him.  Their job is to steal, kill, and destroy anyone they can reach.  Our mission is to PRAY!  To pray for our people, our communities, our country, and our world.  We are the line of defense!  We are the Warriors!  We can't allow the enemy to cross the line. Our strategy is to PrayPray unceasingly!  Please join me in praying during your prayer time, whenever that may be, to pray for people, not just people who know God, but people who don't.  Please pray for the lost, the lonely, the sad and disheartened, the happy, the healthy, the wealthy, all of the people who don't know God.  Please join me in prayer that they find Him and welcome Him into their lives.

Now, this was one of  the few occasions of being outside  of my house over that last few months.  You see on August 3rd, I fell and crushed my ankle.  I have started to write about it several times, but have never had the right words, to share this very humbling experience with all of you.  I have had several surgeries and I am on the mend.  Today I took my first steps in my boot without a crutch.  Yeah!!!  Walking never felt so good, I will never take it for granted again.  I have been praying like crazy, and God is answering each and every prayer.  I am so grateful.  

Thank you for reading this today.  I am so grateful that you are here.

Have a blessed week!
