The Silver Spoon

Well Spoonie made the trip to our carport just fine.  On loan/exchange from a friend...... free storage for free use of Spoonie.....what a deal!  See the heart in the window......more on that later.  She did not have to travel too far, but boy are we glad she graces our driveway.  I have not had much time to spend inside of her galley, but can not wait for our first outing.  Spoonie will house what I am calling Mom's Kitchen that will go out and feed the hungry and the needy where ever they may be.  She drives well and only has a few minor dents and pokes in her side, but that is what gives her the character she deserves.  Wonder where she has been? Who slept inside her at one time?  Who now will be blessed by her permission of hope that adorns her insides?
All the comforts of a real kitchen with propane stove and oven, two sinks (better than mine), great counter space, storage, hardwood floors and an eight track player.  The retro clock needs a little work along with the player, but that is easily remedied....with maybe a flat sceen?  The original pipe is still on the side with wires attached where the antenna once branched out its limbs to catch the latest news that will now hold either a Texas flag or a Mom's Kitchen flag......I haven't decided.

A pretty pale blue adorns her interior like one of those Vegas flame drinks with pretty umbrella. She even has AC.....ahhhhhh who was thinking on that one?  A silver heart floats in the window that reads HOPE for that is what she brings to a nation that suffers.  There are people in need and Spoonie is ready for the task, none too great or small as she travels down the road bungied together, so flaps don't fly as we puddle down the highway.  This a dream come true for me to bless others with His Love, His Grace, and His never ending Mercy that watches over all of us.  Some of us just need to stand in the gap for others til they get back on their feet, til they fly again, til they can reach out and extend the same to the next who is down and out.  We all are called to do our part.  For Spoonie, her time has come to take the lead, help us with Mom's Kitchen, abandon it all for the sake of the call.

As Bonnie Raitt says,"I gotta new thang, the kind that blows my mind.  I am leanin' heavy on the throttle. I want to celebrate my new opinon. I aint' the same plain Jane, keepin it bottled up inside.  I have been waiting all my life to see things from the other side.  No need to pack much, c'mon and ride with me baby for we're headed for the county line.  When you really think about it, isn't that what it's suppose to be like. And it sure feels right.  We'll say goodbye to all our troubles, let all the neighbors talk, we're gonna have the time of our lives".
Can you just imagine me and a host of others jammin in the kitchen, cooking up a storm, lovin' every minute, sweatin' our rears off and helping someone in need.  What more could God ask for?  What more could I ask of God to have such a blessed opportunity?  It will be a journey.  It will be an adventure I am sure.  Spoonie will serve us well I am sure of that.  These are the best times of our lives.

We will be cruzin soon.  If you would like to know how you can help just email me. Can't wait!
Don't know what is down this road, and tomorrow is a mystery.....and that is ok.
