Summer is “B” time! All the important B’s- B’s, Back yard, BBQ, and Bathing Suits. The problem, of course, is that too much of the other B’s tends to make the Bathing Suit look, not so Be-eautiful. I can’t help it; I love BBQ-ing in the summertime.
Thanks to George W and Mike H, I have been grilling all sorts of peppers and other veggies I never have before grilled. My hot dogs, burgers, sausages and such have been supplemented by Mike W’s contributions of fish and deer. Does it get any better?
So, I’ve been trying some new techniques, ingredients and recipes. And I have been having a lot of fun doing so. The saying, Variety Is The Spice Of Life, really is true. Mixing things up a bit, makes life exciting and interesting.
God loves variety. Look at the variety in the creation around you. It’s even more apparent during the summer time when we tend to spend a little more time “looking out from lofty grandeur” and “wandering through the woods and forest glades” and listening to “the birds sing sweetly in the trees”. The variety, uniqueness, and beauty add to the fullness of the human experience.
Hey, why not try something new this summer? Try camping, if you never have (I have and I prefer camping at the Holiday Inn, Daytona Beach, 7th floor looking out over the ocean waves rolling in). Or maybe try a concert in the park. Or laying on a blanket in the back yard at night looking at the stars.
Or, here’s a radical idea- if you go the Traditional service, why not try the Contemporary service? (or visa-versa). Hey, how about shaking hands on a Sunday morning with someone you’ve never (yet) met. OR, Super-Radical idea- bring someone to church with this Sunday.
Whatever it is, enjoy the variety!
Bar-B-Que-ing and loving it!
