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-First Sunday of Advent

Luke 21:21-35

"It will seem like all hell has broken loose- sun, moon, stars, earth, sea, in an uproar and everyone all over the world in a panic, the wind knocked out of them by the threat of doom, the powers-that-be quaking.

"And then-then!-they'll see the Son of Man welcomed in grand style-a glorious welcome! When all this starts to happen, up on your feet. Stand tall with your head high. Help is on the way!"

He told them a story. "Look at a fig tree. Any tree for that matter. When the leaves begin to show, one look tells you that summer is right around the corner. The same here--when you see these things happen, you know God's kingdom is about here. Don't brush this stuff off: I'm not just saying this for some future generation, but for this one, too--these things will happen. Sky and earth will wear out; my words won't wear out.

"But be on your guard. Don't let the sharp edge of your expection get dulled by parties and drinking and shopping. Other wise, that Day is going to take you by complete surprise, spring on you suddenly like a trap, for it's going to come on everyone, everywhere at once. So, whatever you do, don't go to sleep at the switch. Pray constantly that you will have the strength and wits to make it through everything that's coming and end up on your feet before the Son of Man."

Let's visit Dianna for more Saint and Scriptures at The Kennedy Adventures.


  1. thanks for that and have a nice sunday.

  2. Thanks for bringing the First Sunday in Advent to my attention. I usually read the scriptures from the Swedish hymn book I got when I was confirmed. It just seems a little early this year.
