Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Granola Home Made
Home Made Granola
Winter time was when my mother prepared for us kids a hot
cereal for our breakfast.
Usually it was Quick Quaker Oats with some raisins thrown
in.On a couple days in the week, it
would be Cream of Wheat, or Wheatena served with a bit of sugar and milk
generously poured over our bowl of steaming porridge.
In the summer we were allowed cold cereal, those without the
added sugar, such as Kix, Cheerios, Rice Checks and Corn Flakes.
Time passed, we grew up with our own families and Mother was
now alone in her small mobile home.She
lived at the other end of town and we enjoyed having her close by.
One summer day I dropped in for an early visit while she was
preparing her breakfast.
“What is that?” I asked as I viewed her bowl of cereal.She replied, “That is my homemade Granola,
and it is very healthy for you.”
Now I like healthy, so I copied her recipe and will share it
here with you.
