25 Years


25 Years ago I married the love of my life.

…my soulmate.

…my best friend.

…the ONE.

We vowed things to each other that at the time I don’t know if we really understood the full meaning to.

…just as “in health and other circumstances”

we’ve been through plenty of health issues …I’ve lost count of Michael’s surgery …and his heart attacks …and well, I’m not even gonna mention the others.

…and the other circumstances …does that include the ups and downs of the ministry

…or maybe the rollercoaster experiences of being a parent?

I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.

We have our moments, of course  – it’s not always been sunshine and roses – as with any family.

…but through the years our love has grown deeper and wider …as we have grown closer to God. He is our strength. He is our bond.

Today, I love my Michael more than ever before.

…and I am looking forward to adventure of the next 25 years together!

Sunday Sweets ~ Banana Chocolate Chip Bars


A couple of over-ripe bananas…and it’s Sunday Sweet time for sure.

One of my family’s fav’s is banana chocolate chip bars. Super easy to make and perfect when I’ve bought too many bananas this week. With a few staple pantry ingredients I can throw together a fabulous treat.

This is my mom’s recipe. I still use the recipe card that I wrote the recipe on in green ink when I was a little girl and by now…it has plenty of batter splatters on it.

 

Banana Chocolate Chip Bars:

In small bowl mix together:

            2 cups Flour

            2 tsp Baking Powder

            ½ tsp Salt

 In larger bowl cream:

            2/3 cup Shortening (I used butter flavored Crisco for better flavor)

            2/3 cup Sugar

            2/3 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar

 Beat in:

      1 tsp pure Vanilla

            1 Egg

            1 cup mashed Banana

            1 cup Chocolate Chips (I use mini-chips)

 Mix  wet and dry ingredients.

Grease your baking pan. My mom makes these in a jellyroll pan and bakes for 20 minutes.

My family likes them a thick and chewy so I use a 13×9 baking pan and bake for 30 minutes. Cool and Enjoy!

Blogging…..it’s all new to me


Today is the first day for me to start blogging….about Robyn’s World. I asked myself if calling my blog this was a bit narcissistic…..but decided it encompassed a lot….My World. What goes on in my everyday life, my family, my career, my walk with the Lord, my fitness craze, my obsession with baking, and of course, the crazy love for my dogs (and yes, it is a bit crazy)….. I came to the conclusion that Robyn’s World was a fit. I hope you decide to come along with me on this journey…..it might just be fun!

I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. 3 John 1:2 NIV
