A Recipe For Healing

Think about a recipe card or a recipe you were taught. Maybe one that you were gifted. A recipe you love from someone who loves you.

A recipe has ingredients. It tells you where you need to put those parts and how you need to introduce each one. A great recipe will not just tell you how much time each step takes but will get you to use your senses to know a step is done. Cook until you can smell the garlic. Wait to flip the pancake until you see lots of bubbles form throughout. Taste the soup for doneness. Listen to when the popcorn slows down and you can hear a pop every five seconds before pulling the popcorn off the heat.

In this month of healing what would your recipe to seek healing or to give healing look like?

What ingredients would it have in it? How much?

In what order would you add each part? Would you fold them in gently? Or combine in a blender?

What temperature does it need to be at? Is this a stove top, oven, grill, microwave, freezer or fridge recipe?

What senses will tell you when the dish is ready to serve or ready to eat?
