The Sweet Taste That Lingers; Day 8 in 31 dbbb — 9 Comments

  1. With all the new contraptions out on the market, I think we have lost the ability to enjoy some of the tasks that once seemed mundane.

    I can make peach cobbler in the oven and watch TV at the same time. But I love to make it in a dutch oven outside with campfire coals. I don’t get to watch tv, but instead, I get to watch a fire burn down low and the coals appear. I don’t know if it really tastes any better, but I think I enjoy it more due to the effort and love I put into it.

    Too often these days, our lives are ready made out of a box. Thanks for reminding me of that.

  2. Janis,

    What a gift you have for turning these everyday experiences into food for thought about our walk with Christ.

    Thank you!


  3. Great points, Janis. I’m one of those people who gets too busy to make stuff like orange loaf. Only if you post the recipe, maybe I’ll make it for the church this weekend. I usually make the bread, but a change might be nice.

    And I love the photo, too–great idea.

    Blessings, Cindy

  4. My dear Cousin Patcee,
    How sweet to hear your growing trust in the Lord. I could see this last week when you responded to my list of gratitudes. Your list included finding gratefulness even in daily things that do not go well.
    I love you.
    Recipes, I promise

  5. Thank you Cindy for visiting. I know how life can be soooo busy. Thank you for the compliment on the photo. I’m really enjoying experimenting with the pictures–just takes time. I get some good ideas of how to do things from Holy Experience, High Calling Blogs, and Claire b, to mention just a few.

    I’ll post the orange loaf recipe on Friday, so you can make it for church.

    In Him,

  6. You are really becoming creative with your
    picture taking – love the mixer and stuff –
    maybe some day you will include some of your
    Mother’s receipts – yesterday, when you took
    pictures of the mountains – at first I thought, she is alone up on the mountain
    taking pictures, how dangerous is that? –
    then I realized you were in the City taking
    pictures with a long lens – I do not like to
    be alone, and do get scared – but little by
    little reading your blogs, I know I’m not
    alone that God is with me/us always – just
    need to slow down and take the time to

  7. Such a wonderful gift you have been given!
    Thanks for reminding me to take time to
    draw away and rest with the One who gives
