Live in the Moment

You can get so wrapped up in the “what’s next” that you forget about “the now”

Went to a great restaurant over the weekend called Catelli's, and I noticed on the menu there weren’t specials of the day, or soup of the day.  They were called Moments. 

Pizza and Pasta of the Moment

I actually asked them about it.  Because I thought it was cool.  The chef herself told me, she didn’t like committing to a special for very long, or one special dish for every day of the week and to have to constantly repeat it. 

She goes to her garden, gets the herbs that are fresh, and sees what fresh ingredients she has, and creates the Pasta of the Moment. 

I don’t know about you, but I want to order up my life like that.  Take what “ingredients” you have in life and create something special out of it.

Don’t worry about what ingredients you’re lacking, like the right stuff or the right relationship, but make the most out of the ingredients that you have; your family, your friends, your purpose.

Be okay with who you are, and where you are.  Stop worrying about what’s next.

Philippians 4:6

New International Version (NIV)

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Making a difference in your every day life.

Making a difference in your every day life.

You gotta love a good old fashioned potluck.  You don’t see those as much anymore. 

Growing up I remember my Grandmother making casseroles and brownies just about every Sunday for a potluck dinner at church. 

That must have been why every Pyrex dish of hers and a label with her name on it.

Saw where this group of women is bringing the potluck back in style.  They are using it to make a difference. 

It’s called Dining for Women. http://diningforwomen.org/

Instead of spending a bunch of money on going out to eat, they get together for a potluck, and donate what money they would have give to the restaurant to charity.

They pick charities that helps women and girls…they say because they say out of all the  billion people that live in poverty around the world…7 out of 10 of them are women or girls.
