It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the week.
I have to say that sometimes rest looks like me flat on the couch and other times it looks like me in the kitchen. If you don’t know me well…I love to cook. Not so much on the baking side but definitely on the cooking side. Yes, I used to sell Pampered Chef but I wasn’t good at selling the products. Why? Because I don’t measure much while I am cooking. If you don’t measure then you don’t sell very many products do you? 🙂
But today I am in the kitchen cooking our Thanksgiving meal. By the end of the day I will be tired but I will be full, mentally and physically. I have found out over the years that my love language is through service or acts of kindness. So my way of saying I love you or I care for you is to ask if you have eaten yet.
This always tickles me as my Grama was the same way. I can still hear her as I walked through the front door. Her raspy, somewhat hoarse, voice (from years of smoking) rattled through the house “Jon, you hungry? What you want to eat?”. If I replied that I wasn’t hungry the same reply came. A plate with a sandwich or some scrambled eggs and toast (depending on the time of day). It was just a little something to tie me over until lunch or dinner. She would always say that I needed to eat because I was too skinny.
And now I find myself doing much of the same with my daughter. As soon as she said she was coming home for more than a minute the next question was “what do you want to eat?”. How time changes things all while staying the same.
So how are you resting today?
With inky fingers,
