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 - Difficulties

Everyone has problems and difficulties, but they only have the power that you give them.

We will not be free from all difficulties today, or during any period of our lives. But we have the personal power to eliminate the threat, the sting of any challenge. But it's our vision of circumstances that gives them their interpretation.

At this moment, we are defining our experience. We are labeling events good or bad, particularly this day, is greatly influenced by the value judgements we attach to our experiences.

As we grow stronger emotionally and spiritually, we learn that all difficulties are truly opportunities for exceptional growth and increased awareness of the truth of existence. All experiences can be taken in stride if we are trustful of their intended blessing.

We are sharing this life, every moment of it, with God. We need not worry about any circumstance. Always we are watched over. We need not struggle alone.

We can let go of our problems. It's ourselves and the attitude we have cultivated that makes any situation a problem. We can turn it loose and therein discover the solution.

I will not make mountains out of the molehills of my life.


  1. great post, such an inspiration you are,


  3. Love your attitude -- I try very hard to be this way. I don't always succeed. :)

    PS -- here is the link to the pattern for the "hand warmers" on my post today.

  4. We (I'm speaking of myself) drain so much joy that could be ours by soaking in the some of the sourness of life's trials... nice post.
