When I was young, I loved my mom's raw fries. Grated potatoes, lots of Crisco shortening, and a good amount of salt. Crispy and wonderful. Another favorite was pork chop breaded in crushed Wheaties, served with rice. Or good homemade bread, fresh from the oven. Real soup, not out of a can.
Lately I've been needing comfort food. Potatoes and pork chops and soup, all over again. Stress has a way of working around inside your gut, and you have to have food that'll fill the empty places.
I've got spiritual comfort food, too, and am I ever thankful for that. One of my favorite Scripture passages to lean back on is this one:
[Jesus said] "Come unto Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden,
and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light.
Whatever causes your gut to rumble, there's a comfort that settles it back down again.
