Why don’t women tell? Because no one listens; because you get blamed; because almost all of us have been there; because people in power think they have the right; because when you tell people they don’t want to face their own truth.
My book, Meeting Myself, Snippets from a binging and bulging mind addresses what happened to me and the aftermath effects in my life. The latest news on this topic affects me all over again. This heinous crime harasses for a moment of time and then lingers for ever.
Ice-cream and waffle thought they’d never connect. Oh they saw one another from a distance. They swooned and made googly eyes when the owners weren’t looking, but they thought their love affair was doomed. Their owners had concession booths next to one another at the 1904 St Louis World’s fair but the distance between them was just too great.
Then a miracle happened. The ice-cream man ran out of dishes and the waffle man rolled his waffles into a cone shape and the love affair began after all. It travelled all over the world and you might even find it at your local mall!
You see, you never know how the world will change when you help one another out, like those two concession stand owners did.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIV)
Prayer – Lord, help us to be kind to and encourage one another, just because we can. Amen
It’s hard to pull a meal together when the oven is taken up with a big old fat turkey, isn’t it? I’m giving you this saving grace recipe now. Print it off and save it in case I forget to repeat it for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
- Cook the turkey the day before.
- Carve the turkey into serving size slices.
- Separate Romaine lettuce leaves.
- Wash them and pat them dry.
- Put a layer of Romaine lettuce in an aluminium pan or large roast pan.
- Add a layer of turkey.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6, ending with a layer of Romaine leaves.
- Cover tightly with foil and put in fridge.
- To heat the turkey, add about ¼ cup water to the pan.
- Heat in 250ºF oven till turkey is at the desired serving temperature.
P.S. Here is God’s recipe for lettuce: Let Us Love One Another.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35, NIV)
Prayer – Lord we pray that you give us the strength to do just that. Amen
Today the TV closed caption declared cremini mushrooms to be criminal mushrooms. And I wasn’t even watching a murder mystery! Wow, I’ve been eating those mushrooms too! Are they safe? Should I be afraid?
Some specialty cakes are served with a small token of some kind to represent the Christ Child. Others are shaped to remind us of the baby in swaddling clothes.
That may have been the goal but what happens when your cake comes out of the oven looking more like Herod on a rampage? People so easily get the wrong idea!
