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

The Legend of The Sand Dollar - Saints and Scriptures Sunday

While flipping through my Bible this morning to decide on a scripture to write about for Saints and Scriptures Sunday, one of my bookmarks kept falling out. I'd pick it up put it back and it would fall out again. After going through this 2 or 3 times, I looked at the bookmark, and this is what was printed there.

The Legend of The Sand Dollar

There's a pretty little legend
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lowly shell.

If you examine closely
You'll see that you find here
Four nail holes and a fifth one
Made by a Roman's spear

On one side the Easter lily
Its center is the star
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.

The Christmas poinsettia
Etched on the other side
Remind us of His Birthday
Our Happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open
And here you will release
The five white doves awaiting
To spread Good Will and Peace

This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me
To help us spread His Gospel
Through all eternity.

How beautiful is that. No known author.

Have a blessed week. Come back tomorrow, we start recipes for Easter.
