Good Afternoon, friends!
I hope you’ve had a productive week. Each Friday Ricky and I find ourselves sliding into the weekend, ready for some rest and relaxation as we unplug and spend time with one another. With the heat of summer slowly heading out, we plan on finishing up some household projects, catching up on our reading, and savoring life. I’m about to head into the kitchen and make some Homestead Banana Bread for our fellowship this weekend, per request from my dear friend, Donna. After that I’ll pick up the house a bit and work on the upcoming Bible study that launches October 2.
As I type this, I’m thinking of you reading it. Hoping you are well, wishing you peace and joy in your heart, and praying you can find time to focus on the blessings this weekend.
Christy, Phil 1:12

Homestead Banana Bread: I can never have too many Banana Bread recipes and I love them all, but with a full block of cream cheese whipped into the batter, seasonal spices, and a cinnamon and toasted pecan topping, Homestead Banana Bread has a very special place in my heart and on my plate! I’m more of this today for our fellowship this weekend.
