Hello to all of you around the world! Another cloudy day here with just a few lazy snowflakes falling to the ground. The chickadees are busy at the feeder. Baxter the blue jay and his 9 friends are waiting for some more peanuts. Chuck, the crow, and family are enjoying their lunch. Muffin is sleeping on her favorite bed atop my insulator shelves. And I am here, talking with you. After my mom died I got her cook books and tucked in one of them I found this recipe titled “Life’s Recipe”.
So, let me share this “recipe” with you…
1 cup of good thoughts1 cup of kind deeds
2 cups of consideration for others
3 cups of forgiveness4 cups of well beaten thoughts
Mix thoroughly, add tears of joy, sorrow and compassion. Flavor with gifts of love. Fold in 5 cups of prayer and faith to lighten the other ingredients and raise the texture to greater heights of living. After pouring all this into your daily life, bake well with the heat of God’s love and serve with a smile.
That we could easily do this each day. Kindness and consideration for others seems to be so lacking in society today. And love seems to have gone out the window. And don’t forget that smile. There’s no cost to any of this, so why do we find it so hard to do?
I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
