GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Have you ever noticed how messy it is to make bacon in your cast iron skillet?
And I'm not just talking about the spattering of the grease as it sizzles and fills the house with that glorious bacon smell (and I'm a vegetarian!).
I'm saying the entire process from slicing it out of the vacuum seal and glopping it into the skillet or pan to capturing as much of the mess under a lid as is humanly possible...
To draining the hotter-than-Hades shriveled up slices onto a paper-towel strewn serving dish to gathering the remainder of the grease for use in frying the potatoes (another little labor of love if you start from scratch) to dumping out the ultimately half coagulated remains of the entire slab...WHEW!
Sometimes afterward, you feel like, "Sheesh -- all that for four strips of bacon a piece? Is it even worth it?"
Well, heck yeah it is -- and not just with bacon.
Life's that way, friends. You think you are doing the right thing...making everyone the bacon. But then it gets messy and ugly and cumbersome and sometimes you even get burned.
But, those things worth pursuing are always going to be worth the hassle it takes to achieve them; no matter what. Keep doing what's right, even when it gets uncomfortable or icky. #staystrong #havefaith #keepgoing
The good stuff's always worth a little extra effort. I mean, it is BACON, after all. ;-)
Phil 2:6-11 ...God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Alleluia, alleluia. We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your Cross you have redeemed the world. Gospel Jn 3:13-17 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
