No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline is to give thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. See all of my 2013 Lenten Thanks here.
I love to cook, but this weekend I had a revelation about myself as I made leek soup and hummus. I love the cooking process in the same way that I love engaging in minsitry and life. Recipes are helpful and give a framework from which to begin the process, but ultimately creating a great meal is about by feel, personal taste and trial and error. And while there are some that may head straight to the compost bin, when done just right, the byproduct is good community, nourished souls and a cook who has done good.
Today I give thanks for my the gift of cooking.
