I Made It!!!


Have you ever seen a recipe and thought ... Wow! That sounds soooo good? Well I saw a recipe on the corn meal bag for some Onion Topped Corn Pudding. To me, it sounded good at the time. So I go rush out and buy all the other ingredients so I could make this yummy sounding side dish ;-)
I mixed it all up thinking how delicious it would be. Well to our disappointment, it was awful!!! I mean really bad. What I want to know is ... #1) Who actually tested this? #2) Who thought it tasted good? I know y'all are probably laughing right now but when I tell you it was bad, it was terri-BULL!!
Do you ever have a taste for something, and you get your mouth all turned up to taste it ... and when you finally get it, it wasn't anything like you expected? Maybe we shouldn't have such high expectations. Sometimes when I was a child I would get my hopes up about something and most always get disappointed because things didn't happen the way I wanted them to. Enjoy your weekend!

Later taters!

Submission

Coco Kitty still won't let me pick him up. I remember when Trixie came across the yard carrying her little kitty babies in her mouth, one at a time. She placed them in an area she felt would be safe from predators, behind my washing machine. It seems like she traveled back and forth about seven times.
 The bible tells us in 1 Timothy 2:11 "A woman should learn in quietness and full submission".  One of my favorite verses is Proverbs 3:5-7 ... "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct thy path". Acknowledge is another word for submit. We are in this world but we don't want to be a part of it. It seems like rebellion comes before we submit. After trying to do things my way for so long I finally realized what my real problem was ... submitting to God's will for my life. Once we learn to trust in HIM, HE will direct our paths. Maybe one day soon Coco Kitty will let me pick him up to hold him. First he has to trust me. How can he trust me? By showing him love. We should trust God to carry our load and let him grab us from the nape of our necks and guide us.

Have you seen the bumper stickers that say "God is my co-pilot"? I am letting God drive me instead.

Peace, love and blessings! Let me know that you stopped by :-)
