Food For Thought


Cooking up something
Is quite exciting
Will they run away if I pray
Or will they taste it and stay?
Will they be pleased with what is served
Or will there be a bitter taste?
Will they cringe if it’s hot
Or frown if they decide it’s flat?
How to know and find out?
Hit publish and post it!











For Jingle Poetry on Food, Drink, and Indulgences.

For the food cart guy — will they get a hug?

Five loaves, two fishes

More than enough for the crowd

The power of One

For those who believe in miracles — expect One for you.

    hahaha, really enjoyed the video! And it’s really interesting to me because just yesterday I got to know the waiter at the fast food place that I have been going to every week for the past 2 years!

    May God remind me that everyone is special! Thanks bendedspoon!

      Lynda, you are the first one who encouraged and put me to a challenge. You know how much of a sandwich of effort-courage-effort are in here! I won’t forget how much I enjoyed writing for you my Van Gogh, Mona Lisa, and Dickens. And why did it made me cry right now? Can’t replicate the fun, maybe.

      Blessings and hugs to you Lynda! πŸ™‚

    This is so beautiful, Rea Sonshine! The poem and all the thoughts in that . . .the five fishes haiku . . .the food cart video. I feel like I have been blessed with a plethora of tastes and sounds and smells, so just can praise the One who makes it all happen. God bless you and the way He works through you. It’s amazing!

    Very tasty offerings this week! Sharing writing is like sharing food-a kind of intimacy. Nice job!

  21. Olivia Says:

    Mouth watering snack!!
    Second helping….. ❓

    hugs xx

  22. I found myself wishing I could have sampled some of the food on that video. I imagined how good that street must have smelled.

    Then I thought about how each person has something to offer and also a story that we know nothing about.

    I also liked all that you wrote. It gave me so much to think about. πŸ™‚

    • bendedspoon Says:

      hmmm you made me inhaled deep and long! Some have very interesting stories Theresa. In here some of them are earning more than the guy in the office and was able to send their children to colleges. We can learn so much from them, if we take time to listen.

      Thank you so much Theresa for appreciating whatever I can offer though not as grand as what you have πŸ™‚

  23. Chimnese Says:

  24. Rea, This reminded me of the awesome gyros we had from a food cart in New York. It was one of the best things we ate when there last summer! And I can picture the vendor’s face. I wonder what he did outside the food cart business? Peace, Linda

  25. Lyn Says:
