It’s that time of year.
Not Christmas. That has past. But what follows. Bowl season. That time of year where TVs everywhere are tuned in to football. Lots of football. The best of the best. Each day brings a better game. Until the ultimate standoff. The Super Bowl. And lots of snacks. Lots of bowls filled with chips and dips as friends and family gather.
I have to chuckle at all the different names of the bowls these days. All based upon the locale or sponsor.
Thursday night we watched the Camping World Bowl with my alma mater. OSU. And they won! Defeating Virginia Tech 30-21. Go Cowboys!
Now I look forward to watching on New Year’s day as OU takes on Georgia in the Rose Bowl and Alabama plays Clemson in the Sugar Bowl. And planning my snacks. What delectable treat do I want to fill my bowl with on this day to please my husband’s palette?
The Camping Bowl ironically brought us lobster for our dining pleasure. I should have made my food more fitting to the Bowl. Hot dogs perhaps? After all, it was the camping bowl.
Hmmm. Next comes Sugar and Rose. Sounds more like a valentine’s theme to me than football. Something manly of course should fill the bowl. Pinterest here I come!
What is in your bowl? What comfortable go to snack do you whip together for just such occasions? Or are you one to search out new and different recipes to try for special events?
I’m a little of both when it comes to my style. I don’t let go of those tried and true favorites. But I love trying new ones.
Let’s not let our faith be like our game day snack bowls. Let’s stick with the tried and true. We know it works. Let’s not run to other flavor of the day “religions” that come and go in the name of spirituality. Let’s make our bowls the golden bowls the bible speaks about. Let’s make our bowls full of the prayers of the saints. That’s the best thing to fill your bowls with, no matter the season!
Here’s praying your favorite team wins! LOL But more so, here’s to prayer! May your bowl full of prayers never run empty.
Now go enjoy some football!
Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. Revelation 5:8
Love and laughter,
