God Loves Guacamole!

God Loves Guacamole!

At Paper Sunday, we have some really exciting news to share - something that my fellow Texans will truly appreciate. Are you ready for this? God loves guacamole!  

And, he loves queso!  And, if he came to dinner, I don't think he'd turn down a good glass of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir or a cold mug of Belgian Pale Ale.

Most likely he’s a fan of Willie, and I know he’s a fan of Grandma’s homemade apple pie.

Here’s the point.   All of life’s pleasures – good food, good wine, great music, sex – they were God’s idea.  He came up with them first. “He created all things in heaven and on earth”   Colossians 1:16.

I think people sometimes have the idea that ‘giving your life to Jesus’ means giving up all of life’s enjoyment.  Follow God and you might as well call it a day. Hopefully, the second coming of Jesus is right around the corner and He can rapture us right out of our new found misery. Party. Is. Over.  

But that simply isn’t true. The word says, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance.”  John 10:10

So, those hobbies you love, the foods you crave, the experiences you enjoy, don’t stop.  Live life to the fullest!  Party! On! In fact, stay for the after party.

But, here’s the second part of that truth.  And this is very important to get.  Those hobbies, foods, and experiences, they won’t satisfy... at least, not for long.  When we try and enjoy creation without the Creator, life’s pleasures will always come up short.  To truly experience life to the fullest – that ‘life abundant’ that God promises - we need Him. So as you start each day, I encourage you to invite Him to be a part of it.  He is truly the best party guest you can have… and, after all, He loves guacamole!

Paper Sunday’s Classic Guacamole Recipe:

14 cup chopped cilantro, divided

2 tbsp. finely chopped white onion

12 tsp. kosher salt

12 fresh serrano chile, stemmed and finely chopped

1 lb. avocados (about 2 small), halved and pitted

2 tbsp. fresh lime juice

Tortilla chips, for serving

Instructions:

Mash half the cilantro, the onion, salt, and serrano into a paste in a mortar and pestle. Scoop out the flesh of the avocado and roughly chop; add to mortar along with remaining cilantro and lime juice and lightly mash. Serve with tortilla chips.

Katelyn Loved It!!

I purchased the Navy floral cross spiral style daily devotional and journal for our sister missionary. The expression on her face was priceless!! Definitely the most thoughtful and personal gift anyone could hope for. Thank you Paper Sunday for creating such a wonderful gift! I will be giving these to all our missionaries in the future!!

Navy Cross Planner

I love my planner. I ordered two at Christmas for my granddaughters. One is a senior going away to college in the fall. I loved them so much that I ordered one for myself. I then ordered one for my daughter to get through her daughter's senior year activities with plans and scripture each day. However, hers came back without the spiral binding. She loves the planner and scriptures but finds it hard to use if it can't be left open fast. I later saw that it may have been my error when ordering as I didn't see the choices. I hope to order four at Christmas but will look carefully at the choices. I find each scripture a great way to start each day and hope that my daughter and granddaughters find them helpful as well.

He knows my name!

I purchased these for my women’s group. And they absolutely love them! Personalizing your name in scripture is extremely powerful! Thank you Paper Sunday for helping people to speak life over themselves.

Ready to use

I was very excited when I placed my order. I had it begin in May. I love the size. It will fit perfect in my bag. The Bible verses are the best way to start my day.
