For some time now I’ve had a real hankering for a slice of good old, homemade pumpkin pie. I wanted to make sure that I was nice and hungry before delving into that tasty treat. I got to thinking about Christmas and all the wonderful holiday delicacies we all enjoy this time of year, but for me, I ONLY had eyes for one thing, that wonderful brownish orange-ish wedge of pure heaven.
I began to thank God for whoever it was who created Pumpkin Pie. Then I heard, in an almost “uh hum” manner, his voice reminding me that it was “He” who makes the best pumpkin pie out there and that He would gladly give me the recipe. So, I got out my pad and pencil and this is what I heard:
“You see, I first begin with a Guernsey cow who produces the one cup of milk, then a barnyard chicken who lays three eggs, then I thresh out golden grains of wheat for the two cups of flour, I then mince the spices from the plants of nutmeg and cinnamon as I give them each a pinch, then I squeeze a few drops from a small vanilla bean, while scooping out the pulp of a large ripened pumpkin and lastly, I sprinkle in the granules from the sugar cane plant that gives it all that wonderful sweet taste!”
Well, I began to get the picture and more importantly I needed to give credit where credit was due. Not only is our God the best creator in all the universe, but He’s also a very good pie maker as well!
O taste and see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34:8)
