I got my shoofly pie by fed ex on friday, so it took 2 days to process the order and 2 1/2 days to get across country (according to there site that you could check your order on). Everything arrived in good shape. the shoofly pie was very good (mammy didn't think they used baking molasses) but I thought it tasted great. The woopie pies are simular to susie-Q's. I got one in chocolate, pumpkin and oatmeal, I only tried the oatmeal so far. It was pretty sweet, I think they used regular icing in the middle instead of whatever I remember being in the middle. It was a fun package to get. I surprised Mammy with bacon dressing (her favorite) she hated it but she liked whatever kind my cousin sent to her about 5 months ago. It's been very hot the last couple of days and it effects my breathing and being able to move, suppose to get cooler this week, I look forward to it.

shoofly pie

I have been craving shoofly pie (from my Pennsylvania days) I could make one but it would take way more energy than I have most days so I went on line to look - sure enough I found a place that sells and ships them. Now I know they are not Amish because Amish don't use computers but I am pretty sure they are Pennsylvania Dutch which is my background. I will let you know if they are as good as I remember.

I fine with my illness (as probably many people with debilitating illnesses do) it's hard to see what God has in mind. How can I glorify God if I can't even get out the front door.

I was reading today in Jan Karons novel Light from Heaven and the Pastor was talking to a lady who had been bedridden for a couple of months. The lady says, she doen't see how God can use this time in her life. He said, "We don't need to see how, but to trust that He can and will. Perhaps God is pruning you. In the gospel of John, Jesus tells us He prunes every branch that bears fruit, that it might bear more fruit. Whatever His plan, God works in our lives for great good - if we ask Him to."

This sounded good to me, He used me at church and starting the feeding of the homeless program and the kids programs and with the seniors so maybe he has something else in mind now, just wish it wouldn't be so painful to get there!
