Heart-Healthy Brownies

It was a beautiful day today- the weather and everything. Loma Linda Chinese Church had their annual health fair that was held in conjunciton with the 25th Silver anniversary celebration!

Eric and I did scripture reading :
Psalm 84:10-12
"Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you."
