I thank Jesus for His goodness and rush home to wash and blanch my special treat.
Soaking them in bleach water, waiting until they are nice and dry, I take my time. Finally, I take my first bite only to be very surprised when the pepper bites back.
These are not bell peppers at all. They are some form of local chili peppers! I am reminded as the searing heat creeps up my neck, sometimes life burns.
Grateful. I am so grateful to be reminded even in the hottest fire I am never alone. And dear friend neither are you.
“Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isa 41:10
