Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, “I will be bigger than you, You cannot defeat me.”
I never want to expect trouble, as I think we get what we fear and may call negative experiences to us with our thoughts. However, have you ever felt you were doing well, thinking happy thoughts and spreading goodness around you – and been surprised when something unhappy turned up on the horizon? When we don’t seem to be able to get the Law of Attraction to work in our favor – we can probably thank our unconscious fears, the influence of others, or our own unrecognized negative thoughts. When this happens – that is when I love the Ann Landers quote above. Since most of us have not yet learned how to draw only good things to us – what then?
Holidays are supposed to be such a happy time – but for many of us it can be a time of loneliness and frustration. It can be a time when we are overwhelmed with feelings about what we feel is missing in our lives. There is a way to defeat these thoughts – no matter what is happening in your life. Here is just how to do it –
- Make a list of the things you are “missing” in your life.
- Ask the angels, God or the universe to help you lift your thoughts to a higher and happier vibration. See you letting the thoughts go – like letting go of a helium balloon.
- Now, creatively find a way of giving someone a small part of the things you are missing.
You can probably tell that I love pies – just about all kinds. One reason is because so few people take the time to make them anymore. Another reason is that the smell and sight of a wonderful just baked dessert reminds most of us of home and happy relationships. This one has a special memory for me – as my wonderful Mom used to make it every Christmas.
It is pretty with red cranberries, sweet with raisins and rich with cream – and it is easy to make – so try it!
CHRISTMAS CRANBERRY RAISIN PIE
Purchase or prepare pastry for two crust pie
Preheat oven to 400
Fit bottom crust into pie plate – add ingredients in order, evenly in layers, don’t stir.
1 1/4 cups of fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
1 1/4 cups raisins
1 cup sugar or honey
1 cup whipping cream (unwhipped)
Cover with top crust – it’s pretty if you use cookie cutters and cut out shapes from top crust – overlap cutouts over the top of pie for top crust. You can brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar, if you want.
Bake at 400 for 10 minutes, lower heat to 350 and bake another 35-40 minutes, until filling is bubbling. You may lay foil strips over the edges of pastry to prevent over browning.
