My thought for today...

Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another;
be sympathetic, love as brothers,
be compassionate and humble.
1 Peter 3:8

A friend is one who takes me for what I am.

Ft. Benning, Georgia...

Duplex (right side) where we lived in 1977-1979.

Patch Preschool Stacy attended two days a week.

Benning Hills Baptist Church...our church.

Joshua's graduation was held on the field in front of the barracks and chapel that was on Ft. Benning when Jim was in Basic Training. It was called Harmony Church. It was such a thrill for Jim to see all these buildings they have preserved.

Jim's barracks during his Basic Training.

Coconut-Pecan Bundt Cake

A friend gave me this recipe. Colette and I baked one this morning. Enjoy!

Coconut-Pecan Bundt Cake

Betty Crocker Butter Pecan cake mix (found at Wal-Mart)
4 eggs
1 cup oil
Mix together with mixer.

1 can Coconut Pecan Frosting
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
Add to cake mixture and stir well (I continue to use mixer)

Prepare a bundt cake pan by spraying it with Pam and then coating with sugar.

Pour batter evenly into pan and bake in 325-350 degree (cooks best in my oven at 325) preheated oven for 1 hour 5 minutes. Leave it in the pan to cool for 10-20 minutes before turning out onto plate.

Freezes well...if any is left. :)
