6  If you sin, how does that affect him?
   If your sins are many, what does that do to him?
7 If you are righteous, what do you give to him,
   or what does he receive from your hand?
8 Your wickedness only affects humans like yourself,
   and your righteousness only other people.

Job 35:6-8

I thought that these verses were so interesting today as I listened to them on the Daily Audio Bible while washing dishes.  We are so arrogant that we generally do think that what we do affects the Lord, good or bad.  But really it just affects us and those around us.  Yes, our sin grieves His heart.  But that is only because of His love and mercy, not because we are actually doing anything.  It was just really humbling to me today.

Today my number six child turns 8.  She is such a doll and wants to be a writer when she grows up.  The menu she has requested for today is:

  • Breakfast:  French Toast Casserole
  • Lunch:  Pizza Roll Ups
  • Dinner:  Cheddar, Chicken Spaghetti
  • Cake:  Cupcakes that she can decorate herself 🙂

I’ll share the recipe for French Toast Casserole today.  Pizza roll ups are basically just cinnamon rolls using pizza fillings instead of cinnamon sugar, so no recipe there.  And the Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti is from Taste of Home.

Here is the French Toast Casserole recipe:

  • 1 loaf french bread (cut into bite size cubes)
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs light corn syrup

Grease a 9×13″ baking dish and preheat oven to 350.  Place cubed bread into a baking dish.  In a blender combine eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.  Mix well.  Pour over bread.  You have the option of covering this and refrigerating it overnight or baking it right away (I usually bake it right away because I usually forget the night before or don’t have room in the fridge).  Set aside.  In a small saucepan combine butter, sugar and corn syrup;  heat until bubbling.  Pour over bread/egg mixture.  Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes until cooked through and starting to brown on top.  This comes out bread pudding-ish, not dry like french toast.  It’s sweet so no need for syrup.  I love to pick the sweet crusty bits off the pan that nobody eats 😉  Oh, you can use honey instead of corn syrup if you like.  I don’t like the flavor of honey, so I just use the little bit of corn syrup called for.
