Pot Luck

Some delicious writing and pictures are being served. Please click the pic for a taste and perhaps a feast for your soul.

As Leah wrote, pot luck here in the south can be described this way: When my home girls get together for a pot luck meal, no one asks, ‘what do you want me to bring’. Everyone knows it is true pot luck…bring whatever lights your fire. If we have all desserts and no veggies, well, what a tragedy!!

What is lighting my fire today? Hmm. 

Well … no that one might not be tasty?  Lets see, nah! for that one I might be lacking some ingredients. And this one — well, that one is not perfected for public consumption yet. Excuse my discussion with myself. 🙂

I might have such a conversation with me as I consider a Pot Luck dish to prepare. Perhaps I should have such a conversation before I serve up a piece of mind too. 🙂

So what is in the pantry of my soul? 

Psalm 119:11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. via Ps 119:11 ESV;CJB – I have stored up your word in my heart, – Bible Gateway.

Oh I hope I have stored away enough to pull out a morsel at a moment’s notice to serve up an edifying dish for a sister or brother. 

4 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’” via Luke 4:3-5 NASB;CJB – And the devil said to Him, “If You – Bible Gateway.
29 Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s favor) to those who hear it. via Ephesians 4:28-30 AMP;CJB – Let the thief steal no more, but rather – Bible Gateway.

 And don’t be afraid to try something new, when that wild idea comes to mind, line it up with Scripture and if it fits — go for it!  Works with cooking too. pesto chicken and applesSautéed these apples along with the chicken in a little grape-seed oil, added a little cinnamon and a hint of Stevia for sweetness to the apples, topped the chicken with my best batch of pesto yet — it was yummy! 

And that’s my Pot Luck serving at The Loft and here at The White Stone.

Happy feasting!!

Day 252 of 2014, a day to give Thanks.
