The Holiday season is here. I am sure many of you have been rummaging through cookbooks to find those fabulous recipes to entertain family and friends for the big Thanksgiving Feast. During my search I came across one of several church cookbooks that have been passed down from family members or given to me as gifts. I found a section in the back that I have never noticed before. Some recipes that I thought would fill you up:
A RECIPE FOR LIVING
Take 1 person,YOU! Peel off layers of selfishness, egotism, and self pity. Remove all seeds of unkind thoughts, words and actions. Cut out all prejudices, worries and unhappy emotions. Add 1 sincere belief that all life is precious and worth living. One positive thought that you are an important unique creation. Now blend in the notion that life is an exciting adventure. Season with a sense of humor and optimism. Add a dash of faith. Stir gently with love. Next add a cup of determination to try to do your best each day. Garnish with a pleasant disposition. Serve with gentleness, understanding, a smile and best wishes.
RECIPE FOR HAPPINESS
3 Lg. T. of Faith
2 Lg. T. of Friendship
1 Lg. T. of Common Sense
Mix and stir well, during which add generous pinches of the salt of human kindness, pepper of happy wit and spice of appreciation of others. Sprinkle on top the sweets of contentment, discussion, music and reading. Bake over a slow fire, occasionally tasting when done, do not let cool off, but share while warm with others.
