I never thought of myself as a good cook. Oh, I can heat up a TV Dinner
with the best of them, and I can flip a burger on the grill, but I'm not
much of a cook. One of my problems is I can't follow a recipe. When Susan
cooks, she carefully measures out a cup of this and a teaspoon of that;

in the fridge?" You see my point, don't you?
I'm looking for a chapter of Ingredients Anonymous, because I know I've
got to stop myself, but I can't. You'd think that after several spoiled
meals I'd learn, but I haven't. Some things just don't go with other things.
And that's OK.

religion in the world. Our goal is not to get all world religions to agree
with one another, it is to follow our beliefs and proclaim our Savior to
the world. If that doesn't jell with political correctness, so be it, some
things just can't be combined. You know, like cinnamon covered watermelon
with just a dash of green chile powder. Even I have to admit, that was

that corresponds to this devotional.
