My grandmother was a home economics major in college. When she married my grandfather, he told her, “I’ll get you a maid, or whatever you need, but don’t ask me to cook anything.” I don’t think my grandpa ever even boiled water.
Grandma had a maid who did housework. Marie came in five days a week. While Marie did housework Grandma spent most of her day cooking and baking. She could cook like only a grandma can. My family and my grandpa were beneficiaries of her kitchen skills. In fact Grandpa enjoyed a freshly made-from-scratch desert every night at supper. No one, to this day, has ever baked a better apple, cherry or rhubarb pie like the ones my grandma made (all from scratch, of course).
Grandma had one unwritten rule, and we all knew what it was: “Stay out of my kitchen.” That was her domain. She was the queen, and she didn’t want anyone to hang out in there. My brother and I often had to pass through the kitchen on our way out to play, but it was always a fast trip.
This is a wonderful article by Steve Sawyer over at …all for God’s Glory. We should not ever try to accomplish anything on our own without God. Our 110% does not even begin to compare with God’s hand upon us in all we do. Open the door wide, and let Him in!
