This time of the year, our thoughts turn to a delicious meal that satisfies our taste palette.  What is your favorite dish during the holidays?  Is it sweet or savory?   Do you get a sugar rush or prefer the meat and potatoes?  How long does that satisfaction last for you?   I can remember my mother cooking weeks ahead for all the family gatherings at our home.  She would always ask me what was my favorite and I had the same answer year after year…”I love the fresh fruit salad”  Now she spent hours cooking the casseroles, turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, hot yeast rolls, pies and cakes which were all deliciously satisfying to the adults, but I just wanted to rush outside to play ball with my cousins.  The most gratifying part of the holiday experience for me was fellowship with my family.   Do you have an eternal family?   Are you satisfied this season?  “This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: He forgives all your iniquities;….. redeems your life from destruction and crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies;  LORD SATISFIES your mouth with good things; so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  The LORD executes righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.” Ps.102, 103   During my formative years, our church family would sing,  “I am satisfied, I am satisfied, I am satisfied with Jesus; but the question comes to me, ‘Is my SAVIOR SATISFIED WITH ME?”   PS.91:14-16 “Because you set your love upon Me, I will deliver you:  I will set you on high because you have known my name.  Call on Me, and I will answer: I will be with you in trouble; I will deliver and honor you with long life I WILL SATISFY YOU  and show you My SALVATION”  ...Jeremiah31:14 “My people shall be SATISFIED with My goodness, declares the LORD”
