Desire


Some like it plain, others like it loaded.

It can melt in your mouth, melt on your hands, melt on a child's face or melted and served over ice cream.

Made hot with marshmallows.

It can be ooey and gooey and chewy.

It can be light or milk or dark.

You can cook with it, bake with it, fondue it or freeze it.

It can be added to coffee, milk, tea or sauces.

You can add crispies or raisins or almonds or peanut butter to it.

It tastes amazing and I crave it.

Chocolate

Oh, sweet chocolate...


Wouldn't it be great if we desired the Lord like that?

Oh, this was wonderful. I was so into the picture and description and then the wonderful zinger at the end. Love it! A lot of scripture references honey when talking about good things but I bet if they had chocolate back then that's what scripture would say. "Your words are like chocolate to me, sweet to the taste..." lol! (No disrespect to scripture intended. I think God appreciates humor.)

Hi Gina!
I just bought some dark chocolate Raisinets a few days ago, and it was all I could do not to devour the whole bag at one sitting! Love the chocolate! And it's definitely food for thought to think about desiring after the Lord!
You asked about what food we feed Tank, our black lab 'puppy'! He and Anna get Avaderm baked dry good and Avaderm canned, I think it's lamb and rice for the canned and beef for the baked. We have gotten several comments from people in person and through pictures about how shiny both Anna and Tank are. Our friend who has Anna and Tank's parents recommended that brand of food, so we just have always had them on it.

What a great blog--and a wonderful description of chocolate. Also loved the thought-provoking ending line. Donna
