Life is about being thankful for the little things. Sure the big moments will blur your judgement of that at times. But it’s in those small moments that I find myself pausing. Silently hoping that if age demands I should forget it all, that my mind might please remember this one.
Because miracles can be found in the little moments we live through too. I think that’s the misconception with divine grace. That people believe it needs to be big, blow-horn-worthy, life-changing, or some healing event. Sometimes, they’re just found in the whispers of sunlight streaming on the monkey bars at sunset.
Or in those blurred pictures swinging past me through the years. Of tired happy smiles wearing a certain favorite dress washed every night for the next day. To hear laughter floating in the air as two kids play with newfound friends. Those little moments are my miracles. Because these are my rainbow babies.
So I catch my breath with each park as one swings higher and another crawls up slides. I’m mindful to enjoy the excited rush to Walmart to buy a new movie to take to Grandma’s house. And I’m grateful for the chance to all curl up after a long day and a great meal. To which Miracles From Heaven was a heartwarming family movie to share in that moment.
Full of love, faith, and spirit…this movie was so moving! Even having experiences that helped me relate, I can’t imagine what the Beam family went through. Now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital; when you buy Miracles From Heaven, $1 of your purchase will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network.
Undoubtedly, one of the most charming moments of the film is at the end and involves pizza. It made me smile for all the reasons the movie stood for as well as knowing how glorious food is. Sometimes it’s just the simplest things that we take for granted that really make the difference in our day-to-day happiness.
So you can bet pizza is a staple on our menu plan. Even with dietary restrictions, this comfort food is still a joy to make. A messy baker, this pre-mixed dough still meets with a flurry of all-purpose flour to flatten it into shape.
With practice comes the perfection. After using string cheese for the longest time, I discovered that fresh mozzarella cheese pearls are perfect for rolling up into a stuffed crust. Enable a bit of space in between as the cheese will melt and fill in the space.
Now that the crust was finished, I slid it into a 375° degree preheated oven to bake for 10 minutes. Important to note, depending on your crust, you may need to use a fork to press holes in the dough as well. In this case, I did not.
Once the crust is pre-baked, I topped this pizza with red sauce, a three-cheese cheddar blend, and BBQ beef brisket. Then place back into your preheated oven for 15 minutes for the cheese to brown and brisket to crisp up.
There’s something about paper plates this time of year. So slide your pizza pie on, slice it up, and find yourself a picnic table. Despite the heat in the summer, I loved baking up this stuffed crust barbecue beef comfort.
Are you ready to see and share your miracles each day now? Remember to serve up Miracles From Heaven on your next movie night. And if you have a second, let me know the little things in your day that you’re thankful for.
