All this earth. Could all that is lost ever be found? Could a garden come up from this ground at all?
You make beautiful things. You make beautiful things out of the dust.
You make beautiful things. You make beautiful things out of us.
All around hope is spring up from this old ground. Out of chaos life is being found. In You.
You make me new. You are making me new.

Tomato Garlic Tilapia
4 (4 ounce) fillets tilapia
salt and pepper to taste
4 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, pressed
4 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1 cup white wine
Preheat a grill for medium-high heat.
Place the tilapia fillets side by side on a large piece of aluminum foil. Season each one with salt and pepper. Place one tablespoon of butter on top of each piece of fish, and sprinkle garlic, basil and tomato. Pour the wine over everything. Fold foil up around fish, and seal into a packet. Place packet on a cookie sheet for ease in transportation to and from the grill.
Place foil packet on the preheated grill, and cook for 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open the packet carefully so as not to get burned from the steam, and serve.
Grilled Garlic Parmesan Zucchini
3 tablespoons butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
Cut the zucchini in half crosswise, then slice each half into 3 slices lengthwise, making 6 slices per zucchini.
Mix the butter, garlic, and parsley in a bowl, and spread the mixture on both sides of each zucchini slice. Sprinkle one side of each slice with Parmesan cheese, and place the slices, cheese sides up, crosswise on the preheated grill to keep them from falling through.
Grill the zucchini until the cheese has melted and the slices are cooked through and show grill marks, about 8 minutes.
That's all for now.

It is my 100th post! Uh wow. Can't believe I've stuck with blogging long enough to post 100 entries. I’ve been trying to decide for a while what to write about on my 100th post. Well it is here and I guess all I can say is “I’m about to go all Jesus on your A.”
Ever since I was a little girl I have known God loves me. I do not have a memory where I was without that knowledge- but it was more than knowledge really…I have always known deep inside that I am TRULY loved. Sure I have felt less than loved by the world, or people in the world, and there were even times that I thought I would never find a human man that would love me. However- I have never truly doubted the love of my God.
There of course is way more to a relationship with God that just knowing his Love. But that isn’t the point of this post.
I guess what I am wanting to say (I ramble ….I know) Is that in my life not only have I always felt loved by God, but I am consistently amazed by his faithfulness, his goodness and his provision.
But no matter what happens in my life, no matter what struggles, obstacles, opposition, or road blocks I may encounter-
God Loves me. God is Good. And He has ALWAYS been faithful to me.
-I worry too much which is a topic for another day. But that statement is true. God has always given me the exact tools/emotional capability to handle exactly what is going on right now. Not necessarily enough for tomorrow, but enough for right now. He even commands “Do not worry about tomorrow, for each day has enough worries of it’s own”
I guess that's it really.
