And I will pour out on…the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. On that day the weeping in Jerusalem will be great…each clan by itself…And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins.” Zechariah 12:10-12, Romans 11:26-27
I am still waking up..........even tho I have been up about an hour or so. Looks like it is gonna be another beautiful day out there. We had a fun weekend, Friday we got take out from Carrabbas and watched a movie, as I was one tired Grammy, happy but tired as I had fun with our lil darling for 3 days this week. Sat. hubby and I always make a nice traditional breakfast, but I quickly realized I was out of my gluten free waffles, so thought what can I do in place of that, so had this gluten free muffin mix you will see here below, and a can of pumpkin so decided to make some pumpkin pancakes, and they were delicious. So we got a lil early jump on Fall this year, since we usually don't make these accept in the Fall..........so since they were the first of the season, they were really good!! So decided once we had eaten them, poo, I should have taken pics, so I could share the recipe with everyone. So decided to take a few pics so I could use them to post today. That is why the pancakes are so plain and not as great a presentation as they could have been!! lol Then we went out and painted our new to be mailbox post that has been sitting in our garage for quite a while now.
Sat. evening we went over to see Scott and Megan's new home, could not believe how settled in they were already, you would think they have been there 2 months rather than 2 days. lol They don't let any moss grow under their feet, lol, and the house Inside and out and neighborhood is simply wonderful. They and we really love their new abode, and altho they are in a nearby town, it only takes about 5 more minutes to get there, cause we can take the interstate now. I was thinking it would be another 15 -20 mins., so that was a nice surprise.
Sunday was our usual.....we had a full class in Sunday school, only 1 chair left, lol, then our Children's Pastor preached this week, and did a super job, then we ran to yomii for our frozen yogurt fix, and ran into someone we hadn't seen in almost 15 years, which is always a fun thing, then came home and took a nap and then watched some Pastors we enjoy on TV. So it was a very restful day, that we really needed. Hope you had a nice restful weekend too. Will give you the scoop on the pumpkin pancakes now.............
This is the Gluten free Muffin Mix, we just happened to have, that I thought should
make good pancakes, and I was right!!
You could use this: Gluten free Muffin Mix or any Gluten free pancake mix or any regular pancake mix if you don't need the gluten free......... and make according to package directions......or your own recipe.
Then add: 1/2 of a 15 oz. can of Pumpkin
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. of nutmeg
1/4 tsp. of ginger
1/4 tsp. cloves add milk for the desired thickness you would like. (think I used about 1/4 - 1/2 cup, not sure cause I didn't measure it) Sorry!! Didn't think about sharing this till after we finished eating them or else the pictures would have had syrups and nuts on the pancakes, for a nicer presentation! lol
Mix until well blended, then use a griddle and spray with cooking spray, then use a 1/4 measuring cup, and put the batter on the griddle in circles and cook the pancakes on medium heat until you see them start to form lil bubbles all over the pancake, then flip them over and cook the other side till brown, then remove them to a plate. You may have to reduce the heat to low at some point if they are getting too dark brown, like the back one in my picture........lol Add your favorite Syrup or topping, we used coconut oil and syrup, my fav is log cabin lite, hubby likes pure maple syrup. These are wonderful for the Fall especially.
Enjoy!! Thanks so much for stopping by, always nice to have visitors..........hope you will let me know you were here with a comment.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Psalm 19:1-3
Greetings and Salutations Sweet Friends,
Hope you are having a good day where every you live!
Mine is just getting started but anticipating a good day and will be resting and getting ready for my lil darling to come late this afternoon for a sleep over. Her parents moved out of the old house yesterday and today after both closings, they will be moving into the new house, and getting her room painted so they can get it set up before she comes home on Friday................... The last 3 days have been stunningly gorgeous, altho hot as blue blazes and with no rain, which has been nice emotionally ..........but the grass is already showing signs of distress and dryness, and it stays hotter as well. So sort of hoping for some rain today sometime. lol I am thinking the Lord probably thinks I wish these people would make up there minds, do you want rain or shine!! lol Guess we want a little of both. Guess that is what made me think of these shots I took at the beach a few years ago and since we are in our last days of summer time, they seemed to be fitting.........
The header and first pic are of Sunsets, the 2nd and 3rd one just of the beach, love those sand patterns and lil sandpipers, so cute. 4th and 5th ones of Sunrise. The last one an adorable sandcastle some children had made.
Well, guess I had best get on with my list!!
I am thankful #1
for a fun day out shopping with hubby on Saturday, and din din at Cracker Barrel. It had rained so it cooled things off about 20 degrees, so made it not so bad to be out in the heat. Bought a few things but most are going back cause I changed my mind or didn't like the way it looked...........
I am just so decisive these days! lol
for a good teaching on spiritual warfare in our Sunday School class, and that we are keeping a steady number of students these days.
( make sure to click on one of the pics so they will enlarge them all, cause they looks so much prettier that way)
that I will get to see Brooklyn for 3 days in a row this week, since Mommy and Daddy will be moving.
that my friend with the broken foot had a good week back at work last week. She said it went much better than she thought.
She has 4 weeks down and 4 to go till hopefully she will get a boot and be able to put some weight on her foot.
Update: She found out it was gonna be 6 weeks, instead of the 4 weeks now, bless her heart.............. A bit discouraging I am sure. Also glad I got to visit with her for a while on Monday.
for our Youth Pastor who has been filling in for our Sr. Pastor the last 3 weeks, while he is away working on his doctorate. Our Youth Pastor has done an outstanding job.
He is full of passion too, just like our Sr. Pastor.
#6 that we did our research and got our absentee ballots in the mail on Tuesday. We really love voting like this cause it gives you a much longer and better chance to research the candidates, and that has never been more important than in these days!
#7 for all the gluten free items and recipes that can be found out there now. Such a blessing! #8 that friends that live in the St. Louis area, are doing fine. The situation in Ferguson is not near them thankfully.
#9 for a short but very sweet visit from my lil buddy across the street, he came over on Sunday and was telling me about his new school schedule and was somewhat disappointed, so I was able to share an experience I had with that when I was in school and how it turned out being such a good thing for me......so he went home with a different perspective I think.....
#10 that Brooklyn and I got to skype with Dee on Wednesday. We haven't done it in a long while and Dee hasn't seen the baby since June, so thought it was time, had just sort of forgotten about it...lol It actually went quite well and was fun for Dee to see the baby and for us to see her as well. Poor Rosie hears my voice and thinks we are there, so she barks off and on.
#11 for the way the Lord speaks to our hearts all the time, but particularly when it is about things that seem overwhelming to us. The other day I was praying for the Iraqi christians that are being martyred and asking the Lord to save them ( meaning sparing their lives) and I felt like the Lord said deep in my heart "Save them to what?", and I thought how horrible their lives are right now, they are starving and have no food, no home or shelter, and probably scared too death all the time. and then a verse that the Lord had given me years ago about another situation flashed to my mind. It is Isaiah 57:1-2, and the gist of it is Righteous people are taken away to be spared from Evil............. In all this as horrific as it is, God is taking them home where there is nothing but Joy and good things and a wonderful place to be..... God is good all the time, he has a plan and a purpose in all He allows, and it usually has to do with winning over those who don't know Jesus because He doesn't desire that any should perish but that all should come to Him and have eternal life............that way we never die, even tho our body does, our soul never dies..........it lives eternally with Him........... John 3:16
Am hoping this will encourage you, cause it sure did encourage me, and that is the purpose in which I share it!!
#12 that Scott and Megan got everything in the truck, even tho they had to fill both their cars and our van up with some things. Hubby said they got the biggest truck they could get too, but needed just a lil more room..........lol Well, here's another week at Cozy Place, hope it is a reminder of all the little and big things we have to be thankful for.......... So happy you could join me today, and hope you say hello just so I know you were here...................
Greetings and glad you came to visit at Nellie's Cozy Place.
