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

Normally I choose a mediation from one I've enjoyed during the week.  Not so today.  This is one that I needed to read and meditate on, because I haven't really enjoyed some of the people in my life this week.  Nor did I feel loving and attentive.

When people bother you in any way, it is because their souls are trying it get your divine attention and your blessing. - Catherine Ponder

We are in constant communication with one another and with God in the spiritual realm.  No matter how singular our particular course may appear, our path is running parallel to many paths.  And all paths will intersect when the need is present.  The point of intersection is the moment when another should seeks our attention.  We can be attentive and loving to the people seeking our attention.  Their growth and ours is at stake.

We can be grateful for our involvement with other lives.  We can be mindful that our particular blessing is like no one else's and that we all need input from the many significant persons in our lives.  There is no insignificant encounter in our passage through life.  Each juncture with someone else is part of the destiny of both participants.

I will look carefully and lovingly at the people around me today and bless them, one and all.   They are in my life because they need to be.  I, likewise, need them.

  1. The people that I find annoying are mostly neighbors (both the parents and the kids). Yet I love my home and am happy, if only a couple of families moved away, it would be ideal. I know that will never happen, but I still allow them to get to me (loud, unruly, pay no attention to rules, up all hours of the night, etc.) and I cannot move just yet. So I started saying a little prayer for them every now and again. I am sure that is better than just cursing them out in my head. :) xo
