Saturdays are for Drinking the Perfect Watermelon Agua Fresca


Saturday is here and believe it or not, as you read this, I will be flying up in the air to another country again. 

I did not want to leave without sharing with you the recipe for an "agua fresca", it is very tasty, easy to make and beautiful  to see. So, I am pretty sure you will like it so much that you will be making it many times this summer.

You need:

1/2 of a large watermelon. 
some fresh mint leaves.
1 lime
sugar to taste (it depends on how sweet you like it. For a half watermelon I used 1/4 cup)
crushed ice

How to do it:

Take the watermelon pulp (get rid of the seeds) and put it in the blender little by little, with the mint, the lime juice and sugar. You might need to add a little bit of water lo loosen it.

Serve in the hollow watermelon and decorate with some fresh mint leaves.

To serve:

Crush ice and put some on each glass, serve immediately; and don't forget to make it pretty with an leaf of mint.

Hope you have a most blessed Saturday, dear friends!

I must say that my daughter helped me to take all these wonderful pictures!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
