Pumpkin, Spice, and Everything Nice Muffins

Occasionally, I find cake mixes on sale for less that 50 cents a box. When this happens, I stock up on Spice Cake Mix specifically for this easy Autumn muffin recipe. The original recipe calls for raisins, but I prefer putting either sweetened cranberries or chocolate chips instead. This recipe produces a moist, delish, and satisfying cake-like muffin. I am taking a batch to Sunday School tomorrow. Enjoy my friends.

God has been teaching me a lot this week with regard to worry and fear. This passage has encouraged my heart, and I hope it does the same for you. You are prayed for and loved dearly!!

Philippians 4:6 (The Message)
6-7Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
