Story of the Week
Talk To The Cook
(Author Unknown)

My wife recently became discontent with our evening dinners. I noticed her plate, as I finished eating my food, and hers would be barely touched. I would ask her why she ate so little, and she would respond, "It's just not good to me."

I didn't get upset and tell her how many children were starving around the world, I just calmly asked her to send her complaints to the cook. There was only one problem with this answer. She was the cook.

She always laughed when she realized that she was the cook. I recently suggested that she take cooking lessons since she didn't like her own cooking and my cooking was even worse. I found a master chef who agreed to come into our home and teach her. After a few classes, I noticed her plate, and it looked as though it had already gone through the dishwasher.

This was a lesson that we all need in some area of our life. Most areas of our lives could be better if we just did something about it.

If you are not pleased with your knowledge, talk to the student; you are the student.

If you are not pleased with your marriage, talk to the spouse, no not the other spouse, the spouse reading this.

If you are not pleased with your spiritual life, talk to the seeker.

If you are not pleased with your weight, talk to the eater.

Sometimes we would rather talk to everyone except the only one who can really do something about a problem. Most times in our lives, we are that someone.

We can be our own best coach, our own best motivator, our own best challenger, if we would just tell ourselves the right things. Sometimes others don't believe in us, because we don't believe in ourselves.

Next time something doesn't taste right in your life, try talking to the cook.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
When it comes to healthy eating, people who know how to cook and make ingredients taste good have a distinct advantage over those who can't.

(From: Edward Ugel )

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        Thank You for people who care.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
