Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs

6 Aug

Is it really August already?! This summer (like every other summer) has gone by way too fast. I really love being able to fire up our grill and eat outside, so I am trying to make the most of it during this last month of summer.  My husband has become quite the grill master, so it’s been nice working as “team” towards our dinners. : ) These Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs are not only colorful, but have a delicious marinade that is easy to make.

Sesame-Pineapple Chicken Stir-Fry

8 Apr
Mondays are the hardest days for me to make dinner. After the weekend it’s hard to get back into the grind. Dinner has to be easy on Mondays. My new favorite easy meal is this sesame pineapple chicken stir-fry. This 25-minute chicken stir-fry gets its sweet and colorful appeal from red peppers, chunky pineapples and sugar snap peas. It is the perfect Monday meal. :  )

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;his mercies never come to an end;they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” -Lamentations 3:22-23

I love the meditations of this scripture. In the midst of sorrows and disappointments, these words bring me comfort and hope. It is the steadfast, unending, unfailing love of the Lord that gives strength each and every day. After days that I feel I’ve “exhausted” God’s mercy, I get another chance to experience the depths of that mercy when the sun rises again. His faithfulness truly is great.

Chicken Enchiladas with Avocado Cream Sauce

“Gratitude is a choice. It is a conscious and deliberate decision to focus on life’s blessings rather than its shortcomings. Life will always have shortcomings, and it will always have virtues. When you focus on your blessings, your life feels abundant. When you focus on what’s missing, life feels incomplete. Where you point the spotlight of your attention is purely a matter of choice.

The power of gratitude is undeniably immense. Without a doubt, a perpetual spirit of thankfulness is the central ingredient in the recipe for a joy-filled life. You are going to draw more joy out of your business, out of your marriage, out of your family life, and out of all the other aspects of your existence when you make a commitment to become an openly and overtly grateful person.” -Tommy Newberry, 40 Days to a Joy-filled Life

Cultivating gratitude does not only lead to a greater well-being, but spiritual depth. Gratitude is not a virtue that can be gained over night, but it takes commitment and deep heart transformation. What are you grateful for? Today, I am especially thankful for Fridays, Mexican food and YOU! : )
