Another Cooking Lesson

Isaiah 55:2 "Why spend money money on what is not bread and your labor on what does not satisfy. Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good and your soul will delight in the richest of fare!"

Last night I decided that Austin needed a new challenge in the kitchen, so we created Turkey Wraps together for dinner. We started by using our awesome chopper (thanks Aunt Kendra), which Austin absolutely loves. He helps me cut tomatoes, onions, cheese (I stick everything in this little choppy dooby.)

After we were done chopping, I showed Austin how to gently use a spoon to transfer tomatoes to our wraps. Notice how hard he is concentrating! He has that little tongue sticking right out:)

Unfortunately, I lost my helper when it came time to put the turkey on our wraps. I looked over and this is what I saw!

I started this blog with one of my favorite verses from Isaiah. I love how the Word of God is described as food, as bread, as richly satisfying food. I think I love this metaphor because I love good food. I love the feeling of satisfaction after eating a delicious meal, and I love the thought of being that satisfied in my relationship with the Lord.

"Lord, I pray that Austin will find satisfaction in you! I ask that just as he craves food throughout his life, he would also crave time with you in your Word. I pray that he will find nourishment and strength in living a life for You."
