Learning to Wait

It has been quite some time since I’ve shared here. I think I got distracted and overwhelmed with life and trying to adjust to the changes happening, all while rearranging my priorities. I still am. God often teaches so much through the storms of life. Dependence and patience are the primary lessons I’ve experienced recently. I’m very much the type of person that just likes to get the job done. I always need to have something to DO, but sometimes that something is learning to wait. A hard thing.

A couple of weeks ago I finally felt a little more settled and decided to combine our favorite pizza recipe with my new love of essential oils. I had everything ready to go into the oven and found out that it hadn’t preheated…at all. My new-to-me oven wasn’t working. Thankfully, we have a toaster oven so with some pan adjustments and about four cycles, the smaller pizzas all made it through and were consumed. The flavor of the crust with the addition of the rosemary essential oil was amazing! As soon as our oven was fixed, I decided it was time for another round of pizza-making!
