It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve just feel the weight of it all.
I feel the weight of persecution in Iraq, conflict across the globe and personal goals that I haven’t met yet.
As often happens, one thing piles on top of another, and it’s hard to see clearly where you’re headed.
Then, you see things like this video of cocoa farmers tasting chocolate for the first time. What an incredible thing! These men, who work their whole lives harvesting cacoa beans, have no idea where the beans go or what they make. (And yes, I get a lot of my news from Relevant.)
I think it’s an interesting picture of how we often don’t see the fruits of our labor in life. Sometimes we just have to keep going, keeping working and doing good and shining light, even when we don’t get a pat on the back or see what change we may make.
You really never know what a conversation means to someone or a warm delicious brownie baked just for them.
I’m not kidding. As you can see from the video linked above, chocolate is pretty amazing.
These Almond Joy brownies are even more amazing because:
-No butter is required (coconut oil is the star here)
-We’ve invited coconut and almond extract to the brownie party
-These taste like an Almond Joy candy bar!!!
Let an Almond Joy Brownie lift you up, and give a square to someone who really needs one.
