Topic: Love (04/27/06)

TITLE: Love Cakes
By Jessica Schmit


Pre heat oven to “A Lasting Marriage”

In a large bowl add the following ingredients:

2 ½ cups of romantic passion

1 cup of a teachable attitude

3 tablespoons of adoration

2 cups of respect

3 ¼ cups of honesty

Combine a teachable attitude, romantic passion, adoration, respect and honesty together with a tablespoon of communication.

Once thick, set aside.

In a separate bowl, add five cups of commitment. Sift in three cups of faithfulness. Mix thoroughly.

Add in a healthy dose of servant hood and loyalty. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl of fun, mix well.

Carefully add in 5 and 1/8th teaspoons of patience. Take your time adding this ingredient. Be very careful while pouring.

Throw in a handful of laughter.

Blend ingredients together until all the selfishness, anger and bitterness are beaten out. Carefully pour into a God shaped pan.

Cook for a lifetime of love.

*For alternate versions replace “romantic passion” with 2 ¾ cups of inside jokes. Add in 4 tablespoons of coffee shop talks (this ingredient can be replaced with “spouting off sports jargon”)and two teaspoons of thoughtfulness. Stir in three cups of similar interests.
After alterations have been added, follow the above recipe.

Bake at “An Incredible Friendship,” serve and enjoy!

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
I Corinthians 13: 4-7 (New International Version)

Wow! Very creative, I thoroughly enjoyed it. ^_^

Great stuff! I plan to show this recipe to the wife... It looks like a great change from the "crow" I have been having to eat lately!

Seriously, this is excellent... original, creative, humorous and most of all, it has actual value if couples actually cook it up!
Sherry Wendling05/05/06
Oh, this is good! Really original, and just the right touch of lightness to bring home the points with a spoonful of sugar. Can't wait to show this to hubby (who will promptly replace the coffee shop talk with car shop talk!) I can see this one being snapped up by a marriage enrichment publication, for sure.

"Once thick, set aside."--that's what happend to me! Once I got thick, I got set aside! Great piece. Very cleverly written. Great lesson, too. Good job!
