Holiday Recipe And Prayer
This usually festive time of the year is dulled by covid. We just returned from a drive to downtown Austin and were struck by how different the vibe is despite the lights and decorations.
While we cannot make light of what is for so many their worst Christmas season ever, we also feel it is crucial to find some simple way to lift the spirit. We hope what we share in this video is taken in that context.
Recipe Ingredients: Cocoa or Cacao powder, sweetener, milk, and heavy whipping cream. Watch the video for an additional mystery ingredient.
Our prayer this holiday season:
In the name of all that is good, we pray for the health of all the people on our planet. May we achieve worldwide herd immunity to covid, and normal activities resume for us all soon.
In the name of all that is wise, we also pray for our planet's health, that we may be more attuned to her requirements for a sustainable ecosystem.
Last but not least, and in the name of all that is holy, we pray for health, protection, and continuance of all remaining species on our precious earth.
Finally, in the name of all that is joyful, (watch the video…)
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
And Happy "Holydays" To All
Channukah, Kwanza, et al.

Your are welcome and thank you for your feedback on the kettle, Kim: Asha is in total agreement with you and if she could keep it she would. But to be fair to Russill, it looked pretty awful, just as we got cleaned up, we had to give it a good scrub as well, before we could share it with you guys 😉
