Have you ever had a silly argument over practically nothing, especially with your spouse?

~raising hand~

Me, too.

In marriage it’s usually the little things that drive me insane build my character.

Little habits like when Tim kicks the sheets out from under the mattress or goes to the grocery for me and calls me 10 times to ask me questions.

(Tim hides the chewing gum because I’m a gum smacker ~smile~)

Yet here we are, getting ready to celebrate 28 years of wedded bliss on Valentine’s Day. I know. Sappy. Sweetness.

With just a few common ingredients, this deliciously sweet Chocolate Chip Cheeseball is an easy yet impressive dessert to share with friends and family.

You don’t survive that many torturous glorious years without a few explosions arguments tiffs.

Blessedly we’ve both mellowed through the years and those issues that once required a winner no longer seem so important.

I know. Perspective. There’s nothing like a little baby to give you fresh eyes.

(Okay, we’re older than dirt, too, but that’s beside the point!)

With just a few common ingredients, this deliciously sweet Chocolate Chip Cheeseball is an easy yet impressive dessert to share with friends and family.  

Which brings me to today’s dilemna.

Is it cheeseball…..or cheese ball?

One word or two?

With just a few common ingredients, this deliciously sweet Chocolate Chip Cheeseball is an easy yet impressive dessert to share with friends and family.

The online dictionary said it meant stupid, inferior and cheesy.

Not this chocolate chip cheeseball recipe! It’s definitely none of those things.

I promise if you whip this up for Valentine’s Day your sweetheart kids everyone will love you!

(If you’re reading this, sweetie, honey pie, dearest, I was just kidding about the torturous years. Those are all in the past!)

    I am a huge supporter of the Dugger family and my heart breaks for them and even more a grace supporter. A book was written about Respectable Sins and I find myself there all the time. God doesn’t grade sins as being better or worse sins. All sins are just that to a holy perfect God. I would suggest we pray for the Dugger family and our own. Love that you brought this to your blog and your wisdom to know we are all saved by God’s grace.

    • Hi, Kathie. Thanks for commenting on the Duggar post. Regardless of what did or didn’t happen it’s not my place of ultimate judgment and I know the pain of living through heartache when the world judges what they really don’t understand. It’s easier to judge others than face our own sins. Prayer is definitely what this family needs. Thanks for your kind words.
