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 - Rekindle the Flame

I am so guilty of this. To busy to pray and mediate, I think. My attitude starts to show. It is so simple to stay on an even keel if I would just do what I'm suppose to.

To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it. - Mother Teresa

Our spiritual nature must be nurtured. Prayer and mediation lovingly kindle the flame that guides us from within. Because we're human, we often let the flame flicker and perhaps go out. And then we sense the dreaded aloneness. Fortunately, some time away, perhaps even a few moments in quiet communion with God, rekindles the flame.

For most of us, the flame burned low, or not at all, for many years. The flickering we may feel today, or tomorrow, or felt yesterday, will not last, so we may put away our fears. We can listen to the voice of God in others. We can listen, too, as we carry the message. Prayer surrounds us every moment. We can fuel our inner flame with the messages received from others. We can let our spirit spring forth, let it warm our hearts and the hearts of others.

We each have a friend whose flame may be flickering today. I will help them and thus myself. A steady flame can rekindle one that's flickering.

  2. thats just beautiful,,, "a steady flame can rekindle a flickering one",,,, lovely!!

  3. This is wonderful. I listened to a podcast this week, that gently reminded us that time spent in prayer should be our priority. We should fit our lives around prayer, not the other way around.

    Thanks so much for faithfully being a part of Saints and Scripture Sundays!
