“Last Gleams of Summertime—Apple Dumpling Recipe”

The last gleams of sunlight shine through the towering pine trees, and I catch my breath.  Another school year is ahead, summer is quickly fading, and the days are getting shorter. 

On Wednesday I spotted my first harvest moon this year, a sure sign of the changing season.  I love harvest time.

The moments are fleeting, they are passing by, and you and I?  We must find some way to make these precious moments count! 

I hope you had (and are still having—it’s not quite over!) a great summer.  My prayer is that you, reader, were able to find some precious moments with Jesus…  I trust you enjoyed the outdoors, the beautiful weather, the flowers, the fresh air, the vacations, the lemonade, the ice cream. 

May you enjoy this last week of this glorious season.  I’ll leave you with a fast, fun, and fantastic (I had to think of another F!) recipe for apple dumplings.  Give it a go, I think you will love it.

And remember: finish your summer strong!
