A hot and humid Georgia Sunday didn’t stop the congregation from hauling in their pot-luck or pitch-in dinners. They walked across the small slab of concrete between the church and the fellowship hall, setting their delicious hard work in the kitchen of the nicely air-conditioned hall. Crossing over the concrete again, they made their way into the small sanctuary.
I was visiting that day and was sweetly welcomed to join their gathering after the service had ended. I landed at the overflowing dessert table and was met with a decision. Pumpkin or Pecan… The ladies standing beside me, pointed out a pecan pie near the edge of the table, and told me of the elderly lady who had made it, declaring her praise. I happily agreed to taste a slice and I’m not sure I have ever made a better decision. After the dinner was finished, I spotted an elderly lady, crowned with white hair picking up her pie plate to return home. I had to tell her how wonderful her pecan pie was, I had never tasted better. She began to tell me the story of her pecan pie.
“My pies never turned out, they always flopped and so I prayed. I prayed that God would help me make a good pie and He did. He helps me every time and everyone eats them so I think He’s doing alright.”
I smiled at this. What a precious reminder and how neat that God brought it to me by the way of pie. Can I hear an Amen?
