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 Scripture Sunday

I feel sure I have posted this before, but it was my mediation yesterday and I loved it. Hope you do too.

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 to. 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 many 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 many 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 minute. 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.
