Questionable conclusions...sounds good, but I don't think you'll find much Bible to support it.

The first two paragraphs were a joy to read. Very warm, personable...left me smiling. I enjoy your style.
Any article with the foods: "Mac and Cheese to pancakes to brownies" has to be scrumptious! Hey I just had lunch, now I'm hungry again. Thanks a lot. Seriously though, good piece - nicely done.

Nicely written, drew me right in like a friend chatting to me.
Well, I disagree with Dave here. I think that is exactly how God accepts us--any condition and I think the bible says that over and over. It isn't the condition that we arrive in that is important in his eyes, but the condition we leave in that matter to Him. I think that is what I got out of this father. He took what ever form the food came in. He was able to enjoy the meal as it was, didn't waste time on critical words. Nice read

I think there's a difference between accepting someone initially, as in "come as you are," as opposed to always accepting us, no matter what. I absolutely think we can get to the point where we become a stink in God’s nostrils. That’s all I was saying, Donna.

>> Cold, dried-out, or burnt by the stresses and strains of everyday life and by the decisions we’ve made – it doesn’t matter! We’re always His favorite. <<

I’m sorry...that nice and warm and safe and pleasant and I wish I could agree.

Rev 3:16: So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

If He shows His adoration of us by spewing us out of His mouth when we wax lukewarm, then that is an odd way of expressing it...doesn’t quite sound like full-time, unconditional acceptance to me.
