Mmmm... Delicious!

Yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, was a deep one, full of grace.  Today's will be a little different, even though it is also full of God's grace!

On a lighter note, I would like to say that something has been on my mind for the last couple of weeks.  It has to do with food.

It's okay.  You can laugh.  I'll join you!

Probably because we are in the middle of winter, I've seen many, many ads for poutine.

Years ago, I had never heard of it.  But, over the past few years, it's obviously grown in popularity.  I see it advertised, regularly.

To be honest, I've never eaten it.

The desire is there.  However, I'm not sure I would like to have cheese in and along side of French fries and gravy.

The thought of this food option, brought to mind something I enjoyed eating when I was younger.  French fries with gravy, and topped with ketchup.

Hmmm... even the thought of it, sparked desire within me.

You see, during my first (1st) pregnancy, that is what I craved.  Regularly!

Yet, over the years since, I've rarely ever eaten it.

Yes, from time to time, I've had frozen French fries in my freezer, but truly on a rare occasion after my children had grown.  In fact, I can say that I haven't had a bag of them in my freezer, since before Gordon died, more than four (4) years ago.

The only time I usually have French fries, is if I have a meal or pick one up at a restaurant.  Like fish 'n chips, for instance.

Other than that, I don't normally eat them.  Even if they are a sort of... comfort food!

But, this desire was overwhelming, lately.  So, I picked up a package of frozen French fries, yesterday.  And, ate them with some gravy, and ketchup!

I didn't make it as a side dish.  Instead, I made it my whole entire meal.

lol  No.  I didn't eat the whole bag.  :)

A thought came to mind while I was enjoying my dinner.  I thought about how some people might think this wasn't good thinking, or eating, to enjoy such a meal.

However, it brought to mind Colossians 2:16, "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:"

In the first covenant God made with those of the Old Testament, there were limitations as to what anyone should eat and/or drink. 

However, in the latest covenant God made concerning those relating to the New Testament, who trust in Jesus for their salvation, we believers are not bound by the limitations of the past.

For this, I praise God!  And, thank Him!

Not just because of food.  Mainly, because He showed us that we have received freedom through trusting in Jesus Christ.

Hallelujah!

While I'm not sure when I will once again fill my stomach with such a delicious treat, I know I will enjoy it, again.

And, I will continue to enjoy the love and freedom that I have received from my Lord, and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

If you do not yet know Jesus as your Lord, and Saviour, it is my prayer that you will as soon as possible.  Today, is the day of salvation. 

Don't wait until tomorrow.  It may never come.


Until next time...
