Keep Getting Better!

I make a pretty good roast chicken, but this hasn’t always been true. Indeed, for countless years, my roast chickens were “dry & tasteless”, to quote one of my offspring. I tried lots of different things to make it taste better: stuffing the cavity w herbs, water in the pot w a lid & lots of other stuff. Alas, I almost quit trying, but I didn’t. Instead, I decided to try getting better even just by little steps.
I’m the type of person who wants to see big steps of progress & when I only see millimeters, I can get discouraged. So I want this blog to encourage you on little bits of better if you’re discouraged w the absence of giant leaps of progress. And remember that a little better can apply to heaps of areas in your life: exercise, discipline, Bible reading, relationships, school grades, etc.  Gal 6:9 🙂
And my giant leap progress for doing an awesome roast chicken happened when I cut out the backbone, seasoned both sides w salt / pepper & broiled it on the bottom rack 🙂
I no longer make dry & tasteless roast chicken 🙂

Hard but not Impossible

Kind of impossible: a few years ago I was trying to make my husband a banana cream pie (my first attempt) & instead of toasting meringue (which my husband hates), I topped it with homemade whipped cream & then I tried to toast the whipped cream. Suffice it to say that we had banana cream soup & not pie. I learned from this adventure that it’s impossible to toast whipped cream without some scientific intervention. 

Just because something is hard or difficult doesn’t mean that it’s impossible. Indeed, in my relationship with Jesus, I’m learning that most of what He asks from me always seems to meander through both areas of difficult & impossible, thereby forcing me to grow in trusting Jesus more than trying to do what He says in my own strength or wisdom  
With Jesus, things can be difficult be never impossible, except maybe for toasting whipped cream ,)
