Thanksgiving and Christmas are the two days of the year when I eat whatever I want. Just to clarify…if it’s homemade it’s gonna get deposited. My favorite cheatin’ pie is a buttermilk pie…if there’s one within a two block area of where I am on those two holidays I’ll find that dude! But I’m not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth…a friend brought a homemade Sweet Potato Pie this morning, filled with everything in it that you’d want…but nothing I eat during the year.
At this hour that pie is about half gone and I have a sugar high that has my head ready to pop off my shoulders! I seem to need a spoonful or two each time I go to the kitchen…I think I’m addicted! Sorta like the Word…I need a spoonful or two each time I breathe…I know I’m addicted! Okay…it’s an odd analogy I know, but think about it…the King of Kings gives us “the bread of life” (John 6:48) and we t live without it. I can live without sweet potato pie–did I mention it’s homemade?!?–but I t exist for one single second without His ‘homemade’ Word…”man shall not live by” sweet potato pie?…nope…”bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). The Father tells us “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14). And now…through the gift of grace…that Word… …Jesus…lives ‘in’ us. Yessirree y’all…Sweet Potatoe Pie-n-Jesus!…there’s always something to be thankful for.
