"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Follow the directions for cooking the oatmeal on the container. I like to use old fashioned Quaker Oats - not the quick cooking one. Remove from heat and add the following ingredients. Recipe is for four servings.

2 cups oatmeal
2 cups low-fat milk
1/2 cup golden raisins, I use dried cranberries instead.
2T honey
1/2t salt
1/2t vanilla extract
1/2t ground cinnamon

Top with a little cream or milk, sliced almonds, and a touch of brown sugar.

YUM! I love oatmeal. Have you ever tried Quaker's instant flavor called "Dates,Raisen and Walnuts? It is my favorite, although Old Fashioned Oats are so much better than instant and better for you.
