Patience + Oatmeal Cranberry Muffins

Good morning, everyone!

I’m kicked back with a pretty cup of Earl Gray enjoying this… er… lovely weather God’s gracing us with this morning. It’s sort of humbling, really. I think it’s His reminder of what happened on this day so long ago.

While scouring notes to come up with a verse to share with you this morning, I stumbled across this beaut.

“I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him.”

Mmm. Patience. It’s something of which I have so little. I encourage you all to contemplate that powerful verse while patiently waiting for these babies to finish baking.

Cranberry Muffins

I first made these delicious, healthy breakers-of-the-fast when I began my cooking venture. They’re great to make at the beginning of the week to heat up each day before school or work. And they’re super simple to boot!
