As I was reading one of my Bibles I found this: “SOUL SECRETS,” from a widow’s heart. “O God! My heart hurts with a pain I have never known before! I need hope and I need help. Well-meaning people come with offers of help, lunch invitations and other opportunities for distraction, but even their love cannot reach the pit of my soul that is in so much pain. My loss has left me feeling lost and alone. His death ended what we had together and what we were together -- one flesh, one mind, one spirit. You are the only man in my life now, Lord. I am leaning on your love. Bring the light of your presence to this dark place I’m in. Restore me with the tenderness of your mercy, until I am strong and whole again.” When I read that, it brought back memories and I thought of the widows whose husbands went home to be with the Lord. And how the Lord will take care of them as he does me. Read your Bible and pray.

On Saturday October 27, 2012, I had the pleasure of celebrating with the Elites as they celebrated their 50th Anniversary. The Elites proudly presented “JAZZIN THE PARK,” WITH Quinn Harris and also a special Guest “VICTOR TAVARES.” The Elites started this organization 50 years ago to teach young women how to be better housewives. They also have fundraisers to give scholarships to help young people to get a better education. The “ELITES,” have worked very hard to help in the community. If the Elites call on you, please help. It was a wonderful celebration. To the members, may you have many more days in the community.

This is what love means to 4-8 year olds: Love is when Mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken (age 5). I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones (age 4). When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you (age 7). You really shouldn’t say I love you unless you mean it but if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget (age 8). And the final one a four-year-old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, Nothing, I just helped him cry.

Here is a good dish for the cool: RULY TEXAN CHILI - 3 pounds of ground lean turkey, 2 to 3 cloves of garlic, minced. ¼ cup all-purpose flour, 2 to 3 tablespoons chili powder, 1 tablespoon dried oregano, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) beef broth only if you use lean beef or turkey broth, 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed & drained, optional, 1 teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, optional garnishes: shredded cheddar cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream and/or lime wedges.

Direction: In a dutch oven, cook turkey or beef & garlic over med. Heat until no longer pink; drain. Combine the flour, chili powder, oregano and cumin; sprinkle over meat, stirring until evenly coated. Add the broth, beans if desired, salt & pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1-½ to 2 hours to allow flavors to blend, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with garnishes above. Or you may cook a good pan of cornbread with smart butter and honey after it is done. What a meal.
