Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting.
Chronicles 16:34

Yeast Rolls
because you have infused me with faith, hope and love and I want my thanks to rise up.
Spinach Salad with dried cherries, feta, red onions, sugared pecans, and sliced strawberries dripping in raspberry vinaigrette…
because you have taught me that life is a harvest of very odd and different blessings that I think would never go together, but do.
Baked Vidalia Onion Opus
because I know the tears must come and they are meant to be bitter and sweet.

Yum Yum Yams
            because you make  life more fun with orange food and poetry.

Mushroom Bisque
because fungus happens … and eventually you make it into something wonderful.

Turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes
because your faithfulness, grace and mercy bring very necessary comfort to the broken hearted.
Roasted green beans with basil and toasted almonds, asparagus, baked corn …
because sometimes you want us to do things we don’t like and eat our vegetables without complaining.
Pumpkin, apple, cherry, pecan, and an apple walnut torte with carmel rum sauce…
because you love to spoil us with your blessings… just because you can.

Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Psalm 34:8
