We hope you have enjoyed the various recipes our Women’s Ministry Leadership Team has shared the past few months. Like many of you, the time of quarantine allowed us—or caused us—to have more time in the kitchen. Now that life is opening up again, our kitchen time will probably decrease, yet we wanted to take one more month to share a few favorites.

About a month ago I was sitting at my desk when I suddenly felt very warm. Warm turned to just plain hot! I mumbled something to myself about the air conditioner not being turned on while the building was closed. That is until I realized about an hour later, I was freezing. Another wave of hot hit me again before the end of the day. I assumed I was past this hot flash stuff, but it has returned with a vengeance. And, of course, I can’t get in to see my doctor until August! That’s a whole summer of hot flashes in the 95° heat. So, I’m stuck for now with hot, then cold, then hot, cold, hot, cold. My frustrated exclamation, Lord, this is crazy, was followed by the thought, but it’s better than lukewarm. Well, I would take a little lukewarm right now, but I understood the thought to be a reminder of Jesus telling the church of Laodicea that He would rather they be hot or cold in their love for Him but lukewarm made Him want to spit them out of His mouth—just plain sick to His stomach.

Another month is passing us by, and we are still in this holding pattern, this pause, these parenthesis around the COVID-19 time in our life. We have been through and will continue to go through transitions and changes—we truly don’t know what is ahead with this pandemic, but I think we can anticipate more change.
