I learned a valuable lesson yesterday morning as I was cooking our breakfast. I had decided to participate more in the preparation of food.  I was scrambling eggs but first diced up onions, red potatoes, mushrooms and sauteed them in Olive Oil.  At the last minute I spotted a half ear of corn wrapped up as leftovers and quickly popped it on the cutting board and threw the precooked soft buttery bits into the veggies.  

I kept up my stirring and turned around to reach up for plates and heard this popping noise. As I turned back around a second and third popping explosion occurred and I watched veggies literally fly out of the pan.  The darn corn was sizzling and popping.  I did not know that COOKED corn would do that when sauteed with other veggies. I learned something new in that moment. Corn will still pop after being cooked.

We were up in Bonham yesterday with our Dad Ben, and of course visited my Dad as well.  Howard and Tracy were there too. That is Terry's brother and his wife.  I never laughed so hard as I did hearing stories of their mom and brother David.   My favorite phrase I brought out of the day was "I know that you can, but you shouldn't.  

Try that one out today.  Hear God's voice..."I know that you can.... but you shouldn't." He give us so much freedom and flexibility to make our headstrong way in life.  Of course you can, but should you?


“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.”- 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
