Prayer Chewing

An absent son, a present pancake, a father's present

Some folks go prayer walking.

toasted pancakeA few minutes ago, I chose to do some prayer chewing. (Why not?)

Our youngest son Andy is on the East Coast somewhere singing with Tapestry Chamber Singers. He likes to eat leftover pancakes, toasted. I needed a late afternoon snack. I opened the fridge. I saw a bag with leftover pancakes from yesterday morning’s breakfast.

I toasted one in his honor. And thought of him. And prayed for him. While I chewed. (It’s what Dads should do.) Read it all

Juli’s Grandpa’s Favorite Homemade Yogurt

Actually, I don't know that to be true. I haven't tried it yet.

I think even I could make this yogurt… 😯

  1. Half gallon milk in a covered crockpot on low for 2.5 hours.
  2. Turn off cooking machine and let it all sit (still covered) for 3 hours.
  3. Whisk in 1 cup of plain yogurt. (Uncover first, of course.)
  4. Recover (as in, put the lid back on the crockpot) and then wrap the whole thing in a large towel and leave thusly for 8 hours.
  5. Done.

Weapons-Grade Assault Food

I've led a sheltered life -- I had no idea.

First of all, I’ve led a sheltered life — I had no idea about triangular pancakes. 😳

Second of all, what’s to keep the aggressive “non-lambs” from cutting their altered flapjacks back into weapons-grade assault triangles? 😯

Third of all, here’s the story as I copied and pasted it: Read it all

Starting Healthy

Mark's early-morning consumings and some of their health benefits -- green tea, enzymes, multi-vitamins, cayenne pepper, and so forth.

I launched my day in a fashion good for my health:

  • Invested time praying for my family and me.
  • Read this morning’s Scripture selections from Daily Light on the Daily Path. (And highlighted one verse at Panting Hart.)
  • Gingerly ate half a banana (too green yet to eat a whole half).
  • Sipped (happily) two cups of Nescafé Clásico.
  • Slurped (less enjoyably) one cup of Blueberry Breeze Green Tea. I’ve told you before about the benefits of green tea (but you have to drink it, OK?).
  • Chomped down three Papaya Enzymes tablets. They taste good and when I consume them faithfully I don’t need Tums or Rolaids like before.
  • Shook cayenne pepper onto the fried egg I ate.
  • Ate slice of homemade bread. Toasted. Under fried egg, in lieu of plate. (Yes, I ate the lieu too.)
  • Swallowed two Vitamin Code 50 & Wiser Men. (I suppose that’s what the cannibal said too.) 😯
