Aslan is on the Move!!

Goodness does time ever fly when you're having a good time! I have been so very busy I dont know if Im coming or going,  but the trip  is   awesome!!  My  best friends and prayer  pals  started  a prayer initiative  2 years ago  tht has grown into  quite  an amazing  journey  uniting God's  people  from  several denominations  to come together to exalt   the one who  unites us... Jesus Christ. In this time  that Ive been  absent,  I helped create  another blog,   which  demontrates all the amazing activity in which I have been    involved in.... mainly, since our   efforts have been preparing the spiritual soil of our community,  we  have  joined together with  Intercessors for America to  create  a new initiative   to Transform Roanoke.  I just got that blog up and running  today!... I hope to be able to    get back to Wings of Eagles,  soon...  but  meanwhile Aslan is on the move in  our personal lives and  corporately!   Please visit these other two blogs and  let me know  what you think about it all..  Id love to dialog about any of it!!!

An Afternoon's Rumination

On our recent trip to Newport, Kentucky we were blessed to get to stay in a gorgeous home  a block from The Levee on the  Ohio River. 

So gorgeous  in evening... like  a starry night!

 The magnificent skyline of Cincinnati was  our backdrop...

  the  area  was  so very charming.... homes similar  to this.

 each one  quaint,  well dressed, and  family friendly!
I   was  completely entranced with the decor of our  short term abode.

I love this  mantel  decor.  In the first place I  have already checked out  getting a deer  head for my living room... it is on my  Christmas  wish list on Amazon!  The   decorative  bone and antlers  make such a statement, as well!
   The papered wall  highlighting the  fireplace was   a very special touch!

Is this ceramic quail  just the most darling  accent piece atop a stack of old books.

The  simplicity of this  table setting  was  most appropriate for any season.

But, of course,  this accent wall  as you entered the parlor,   just took everyone's breath away!

So as the sun sets on my twilight  reflections     of the last week...

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::

Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes

Ingredients for donut holes

  • 1 ¾ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1 ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (or butter), melted
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup milk

Ingredients for coating

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (or butter), melted
  • 2/3 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice


1. Grease a mini muffin pan with coconut oil or butter. Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl and all wet ingredients in another.
2. Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoons or with a melon baller into the muffin pan. Bake on 350F for 12-15 minutes. (I had to bake this version for longer than the allergen-free version below.)
3. While the donut holes are baking, combine sucanat and pumpkin pie spice. Pour melted coconut oil in another dish. I leave mine on the stovetop, so the coconut oil doesn’t harden. Once you take the donut holes out of the oven, dip them in the oil, then roll them in the sucanat/spice mixture.
Makes 48 donut holes!

Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::

I really enjoy the blog  The Humbled Homemaker:) 
I just shared this blog with my daughter this week.

Praying for::::

Family, friends, church,  choir practice in prep for the holidays, 
my poor mother in  a nursing facility, our nation  (ebola, the elections),   Israel, the World 

Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment:::: 

“If men would pray as they ought to pray, the marvels of the past would be more than reproduced. The Gospel would advance with a facility and power it has never known. Doors would be thrown open to the Gospel, and the Word of God would have a conquering force rarely if ever known before.” E. M. Bounds:

Let's follow  A Bowl full of see what comes next!

Welcome October

October has always been one of my busiest  months..
 When I was teaching,  it seemed that was   the month I finally juggled all the balls into the air,   and  I spent the rest of the year keeping them all  going in a  mad-hatter  circle about me...retirement hasn't changed that much...  my calendar is so full of  things to do,,,, Bible studies  church committee work,  luncheons,  extra choir practices for holiday  programs,  club activities,    prayer vigils,  because  everything  needs to be completely  saturated with  life sustaining prayer.
But life is  great..  and  each new day offers new challenges and  opportunities...   and then  in the world around us we see  nature   winding down in a blaze of  glory....  something I think   we should  take time to do  as we are able....
Autumn has  such  a  glorious allure...

                                         the  colors are  radiant 
                 I love this quote from this month's Victoria Bliss...

                 "Autumn burned brightly,a running flame                                 through the mountains,a torch flung to the trees.."
                                                 Faith Baldwin
