I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog! I am a Women's Minister and a former Pastor's Wife. I love finding God in my regular-everyday-stuff. I struggle with keeping up with the laundry, I love blogging, and my kids are my first line of ministry. I am recently widowed. So God and I are on a brand new journey as I try to find peace and understanding. Please grab a cup of coffee and let's get to know one another as we journey on our faith walk together.

Double Fudge Chocolate

Recently I was asked to lead a time of devotion for a group of teenage girls.  They were from Chicago, visiting our church in New Orleans, conducting our VBS and doing some Katrina relief work.  Their Youth Pastor planned a night in the French Quarter and then afterwards a time of devotion for the kids.  My husband was assigned the guys and I had the wonderful pleasure of leading those very impressionable young ladies!

So after a wonderful time of coffee and beignets I lead them over to the steps of the Mississippi.  It was a beautiful night!  The following is what I shared with them - as you read this I hope you gain a new outlook at what grace might be like (in regular everyday life terms)!

I TOTALLY love chocolate!  I love how it tastes, I love how it melts in my mouth, I love it melted, frozen, warm, cold - just about anything about chocolate - I love it!  Every time my husband & I go to a restaurant and it comes time for desert, I tell myself, "I'm going to try something new!"  And then I cave and go for the chocolate.  And shouldn't chocolate in of itself be good enough?  Sure.  But why do I love Double Fudge chocolate even more?  I could eat double fudge chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream on the side - and as my Dad used to say, "and eat it all with a chocolate spoon!"

Now that you've got this image of this heavenly bliss in your head and perhaps on your taste buds, I want to share a verse with you.  I think I have found the spiritual equivalent to double fudge chocolate in scripture (minus the calories of course)!
