Summer Fruit Medley

Since summer is just around the corner, I decided to make a fruit medley for some guests coming over for dinner tonight.

This is such an easy recipe which I found from a Southern Living magazine, but I tweaked it a little.

Directions on how to make this delicious fruit medley- perfect for summer:

1. Whipped 1 cup of heavy whipping cream in a bowl until thick
2. Add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract to cream and stir
3. Take 1/4 cup of brown sugar and whip into cream mixture
4. Cut up some fresh fruit of your choice (of use frozen fruit if you like) and place on a serving dish
5. Sprinkle cream on top of fruit and serve or refrigerate for later

For the fruit, I used a variety such as bananas, peaches, strawberries, and melons.

Let me know if you try it and what you think of this recipe!

I also want to leave you with a song we sing in church on Sundays and it happened to be stuck in my head today.
Here are the lyrics if you would like to read.

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless Babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save

Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live, I live
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From a life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand
