Cream Cheese Swirl Brownie Recipe

For the brownie
*1 package brownie mix (18.3 oz)
*1/4 cup water
*1/2 cup vegetable oil
*2 large eggs
For the cream cheese swirl
*6 oz cream cheese, softened
*5 tbsp butter, softened
*1/3 cup sugar
*2 large eggs
*2 tbsp flour
*3/4 tsp vanilla extract

*Preheat oven to 350 F
*Prepare the brownie mix according to box and pour half of the batter into greased 13" x 9" pan.
*Beat together all ingredients for cream cheese swirl and pour evenly over brownie batter in pan.
*Pour the remaining brownie batter on top. Take a knife and run it through the batter mixing together the brownie batter and cream cheese swirl until they swirl together.
*Put in oven for 30 minutes (The recipe says 24-26 minutes but when I put it in for that long they weren't near down. I put them back in for a while but I didn't time it. I just checked the brownies every so often. To know when the brownies should be done the edges are done quite a bit (not burnt though) and the middle should be clean when a toothpick is inserted).

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

Meditations // Jeremiah 1:6-8

"Then I said, 'Ah Lord God! Behold I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.' But the Lord said to me, 'Do not say "I am only a youth" for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,' declares the Lord." --Jeremiah 1:6-8 In this passage God commands Jeremiah to speak to the people on His behalf and what does Jeremiah do? "I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth." This wasn't an easy task, nor would it be a fun task, or a task where the people would love him, it was a difficult, uncomfortable hard task. Jeremiah thought himself too young. Jeremiah didn't think that God could use him because of his age. But what does God say? That HE would be with Jeremiah, give him the words to say, and deliver him. God doesn't just command him to do something, he also gives us promises to go with that command.
