As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

A "Fweet" Idea For Summer {Blueberry Cheese Pie}

As so many of us admit that we, like preschool Bekah, feed ourselves "fweets", I thought I'd share a recipe for a pie that we have enjoyed several times this summer. It is cool and creamy and I do not have to turn on my oven. (If only I could claim that it was low in calories...but, alas, I cannot.)


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8-oz. package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 9-inch graham cracker crust
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch

  1. Whip cream until fairly stiff.
  2. Beat cream cheese and confectioners sugar together until creamy.
  3. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture and pour into graham cracker crust.
  4. Bring blueberries, granulated sugar, and lemon juice to a boil.
  5. Make a slurry of the cornstarch and water; stir into boiling mixture. Stir until berries are thickened.
  6. Cool. Spread over pie.
