Friends, my heart is heavy for so many longing for connection these days. Which is why I say, take every opportunity that you can to be with people right now, and open your homes to share a meal. You will soon realize, it’s more about them, and less about you.

Try breakfast instead of dinner! Trader Joe’s makes it easy, with this delicious Orange Cherry Buttermilk Waffle Recipe. And breakfast is very inexpensive! Whether you are hosting overnight guests, or you’re inviting your neighbors for brunch, a few hours around the table are sometimes all we need to grow in faith, and expand relationships.

The table is a place where we can be heard, feel loved, and tell our story.

This idea came to me when Paul and I were the only ones hiking up to Paulina Peak earlier this week.

There’s something about nature that pulls you in, and gets you thinking of things that really matter.

It’s where God seems to talk to you about matters of the heart and soul and mind.

Connection is the basis of our faith. From our needy hearts, our desire to be loved and known is so real, it almost causes an ache when we do not get enough of it.

One way of thinking about connection is to not think about ourselves, but others. Because when we reach out to others and dive into their lives, our needs seem to fade. We give, and we are blessed.

It’s easy to start with breakfast. (Are you following me on Instagram and following my “stories?” You have to be on your ipad or phone to see the stories!)

Orange Cherry Buttermilk Waffle Recipe

Buttermilk waffle (or pancake) mix.

The secret to great flavor? Orange zest and Greek yogurt. The yogurt gives it an extra boost of “sourdough” flavor.

How do you make the perfect, crispy-on-the-outside waffle? Spritzed olive oil on the waffle maker.

We bought our bottles from a local kitchen store downtown (2 in a pack). One for the outside grill, one for inside.

So delicious when you add dried cherries!
