For The Love of October

October is the best month of the year. Not only do I get to celebrate my birthday, watch the Major League Baseball fall classic extravaganza,  bask in the crisp October weather. I also with much delight get to cook and enjoy  the world of squashes.

I love me a good squash. Boiled with butter, spiced roasted, puréed, in soup, creamed, candied, baked in pies. Squashes are the hearth of fall, they represent the change of season and the long hard work of our farmers. The squash season is long and arduous. In order to grow one, one must plant them in early spring and allow them to receive ton of sun, God providing of course.

Many a recipes will surface on the internet, cooking shows or even your grandma’s recipe Rolodex for your favourite dishes, including the much dreaded Pumpkin Spiced Latte (YUCK!) (no wait double YUCK!). One of my favourite squash is the spaghetti squash. I love how it flakes into strings and can be moulded in any shape and flavoured deliciously since it has a very light and delicate taste. My other best squash is the butternut squash. It roasts really well and makes a great purée and soup, and how can I forget the vast realm of zucchinis? I have some squashes here, right now and I’m going to start cooking some for this evening.

When we remember!

There’s so much power in remembering, in looking back at moments in our lives that have changed the way we see the world. There are good moments, there are not so good moments. Moments we want to relive and moments we want to forget. Sometimes we look back and wonder where we went wrong and if we ever get a second chance, how would we do it again?
Then there’s moments we will forever hold dear to in our hearts. These moments represent our most deepest fears, our emotions, and our greatest triumphs. Though all these moments are tied to an experience in our live, there’s one that stands out in a Disciple’s life. And dare I say that I speak for a lot of people when I mention that the day we were resolved to live in sin no longer and were baptized for our sins is the most memorable day of our lives.
Wouldn’t you agree?
You see, people are always creating memories. That’s just how we’re wired. Our brain synapses and keeps track of all we have done, whether you remember it or not. And in this lies the problem, as we get older new memories are cataloged in our brains, sometimes casting a shadow on previous memories. Stacking one thought after another and one memory after another until the oldest memories become blurry even sometimes forgotten.
The good news is this: Ephesians 2:11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
We need to remember who we are!
  1. Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness…
2. 1 John 3:24 The one who keeps God’s commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
We need to remember who we are! otherwise we won’t have a clear understanding in the direction we need to go, we want to go or we need to go. Amen!
let us celebrate our citizenship with remembering Jesus on the cross.

1 Corinthians 11:23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
