This is Me!

This is Me! The good, the bad, and the bald. You get it all! But I have hair now. This spring I'll be rockin the pixie.

Ode to My Oven!

You saw me through countless pies, cookies, and cakes,
Dutch babies, pizzas, and you broiled my steaks.

I remember the muffins and scones you would hold,
The salmon, and halibut, rock fish and sole.

There were countless pans of varieties of breads,
Now I look on wistfully to think that your dead.

Your lifeless and inanimate, you haven't a soul,
But my enemy knows how to find a weak chink or hole.

He thinks I will crumble, get angry and break.
But my God says "I'm the bread... the kind you don't bake."

So with confident hope and expectance with joy,
I look back at you now and see just a toy.

Things come and they go, they break and they fry.
But Jesus my savior was sent here to die.

He gave up his own life, so that I would be free.
Now the things in my life, they don't define me.

A new oven some day indeed would be great!
But it doesn't define our dinner time fate.

A Kenmore, A Whirlpool, a Maytag, we'll see.
But for now I'm content for God's bread to feed me.
