Grace For Our Days
This morning I found some recipes in a lovely, little garden dinner cookbook I bought for the pictures at the used shop. The recipes are full of things like red onions, jalapeno peppers, cloves of garlic, olive oil, fresh ground pepper, fresh cilantro, fresh lemon juice, red wine vinegar, etc. So you can see why I spent the dollar. The pretty tables set in gardens are quite fetching. But a handful of the recipes finally caught my attention. I really need a word for when something you've had, suddenly comes into focus for a completely different reason...something you couldn't have thought before now. And the definition should include the certain knowledge that God had it in The Plan all along.
Oh I know, you girls are rolling your eyes, but SERIOUSLY! It all still feels new to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad it's your turn, and I am happy to have a go at this new turn of circumstances.
Now I can try a black bean salsa recipe if I like or rearrange the kitchen shelves without interruption. Or have a job away from home for a couple days a week. And be available to friends who need.
Like Amy said with a big sigh last night after we picked her up at the airport, "Life is good!"
