***Please pray for Karen’s mom as she has surgery at 1:00 Wednesday afternoon. They have discovered a cancerous tumor on her colon and are going in for exploratory surgery and to possibly remove the cancer. She has a great deal of peace but she is quite miserable in her body. We are believing for complete healing. Please say a prayer for her. She is an exceptionally, wonderful woman.
Jessica is studying Johnny Appleseed at school. They’ve been learning about apples and having daily apple treats. I volunteered to send in apple muffins tomorrow, so I ‘ve spent the evening baking these terrific apple treats. They look like something you’d see at a coffee shop or deli. I thought since we are enjoying this fall apple season, it’d be a good time to post this recipe.
