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 - Faith

Faith is like the air in a balloon. If you've got it you're filled. If you don't you're empty.

Being faith filled takes effort, not unlike becoming a good writer, tennis player, or pianist. Faith grows within our hearts, but we must devote time to foster this growth. Daily discussions with God are required, frequent times to hear God's messages to us-just as practice on the court, hitting balls or sitting for extended periods at the piano are necessary to attainment of these goals.

Life's difficulties are eased when we have faith. The most frightening situation, a job interview, an evaluation with our boss, a showdown with a friend, can be handled confidently when we let our faith work for us. But, we must first work for it, work to attain it and work to keep it. Like any skill, it gets rusty with lack of use.

I will make sure to add to my reserves today. We never know when we may need to let our faith direct our every action. I will make God my best friend and that partnership will carry me over any troubled time.

Please visit Dianna at The Kennedy Adventures for more Saint and Scriptures Sunday. Have a wonderful week.


  1. I love the image of faith being like a balloon!

    Happy Sunday. :)

  2. BINGO -- I love this! You are exactly right -- our relationship with God isn't unlike any other - we truly must work on it, and nurture it to see it grow.

    Thanks so much for coming by, every week!
