My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Saint and Scriptures Sunday

If I stop one heart from breaking. I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching. Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin into his nest again, I shall not live in vain. - Emily Dickinson

The gift of attention to each other is "passing on" the love of God. In order to feel love, we have to give it away. We will know love when we give love.

Out attachment to the world, the sense of belonging most of us long for awaits us when we reach out to someone else.

Each day, each one of us can ease the pain of a friend, a co-worker, a child. The beauty of God's plan for us all, is that our own pain is relieved in the process of easing the pain of another. Love is the balm. Loving others makes our lives purposeful.

No day is lived in vain, if I but cherish someone else's presence.
