Today, I will let you know about something that happened in the apartment building I live in.
Back in the fall of 2019, I attended a Women's group meeting that I am a member of, here in the apartment building.
Something was arranged that I had never before seen that would happen.
It was a dinner meeting that was called... Chili Cook Off!
Chili Cook Off!... was scheduled at dinnertime … 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm... on Sunday, January26, 2020.
And only 50 people were able to purchase a ticket to attend. I did!
Not everyone needed to cook Chili and bring it. Only 7 people were to do that, because 5 group people would check out every recipe and determine who was the winner.
A lady I know... A... who is friendly, was one of the people who would cook Chili and hope to win.
When I arrived at the party room, that friendly lady suggested we sit together. We did!
Before we sat together, I had gone to look at the 7 types of chili, that were named... A, B, C, D, E, F, and... G.
I thought about having type 'A'.
But, then I went to see a copy of each recipe, so it would help me determine which type I would have a bowl of chili, for dinner. Just as everyone else wanted to do, since we could only have one (1) bowl of chili.
After reading the recipes, I determined that I truly preferred to have the type 'A'.
Then, I decided to speak with my lady friend, to find out which type of chili she had cooked and provided.
She told me... type 'A'.
I was excited, for that was what I truly wanted for dinner!
We, and other people all enjoyed eating, visiting, and talking together. :)
We saw that my lady friend's chili was gone. It had all been eaten by people, sooner than most other types.
To me, I thought she would win! Her chili was delicious!
Instead, she found out that she won as a 3rd winner.
Here is a pic of her at her door to her apartment...
Congratulations, dear friend... A!
Thinking about that, made me think about James 1:17, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.".
Amen! Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Yes, A received a gift for being a winner.
But, I believe that she will also receive a perfect gift from God... because she is a believer... who belongs to Him.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
