Pie Anyone ??

Coconut Cream Pie ...
Our struggling little church received a new pastor
{and wife} this summer and we are seeing very positive
results in the short time since they arrived. {YAY!}

One of their new ideas is to have a free lunch
one Sunday a month for anyone who wants to come.
Members of our church have embraced this idea
wholeheartedly and we have seen several new faces
in the short time that we have been doing this outreach.
Unemployment is high in our area and there are
so many people out there hurting who can
use a good home cooked meal.
Praying that we will continue to see
positive results and that these people will realize
that there truly is a God above who cares for them.

Okay , back to the pie. Someone brought an
cream of coconut pie to one of the dinners.
It tasted like it was homemade.
surely it had to be.
but no... I found out who brought it and that it was a
frozen pie
purchased at the grocery store.
I went right out the next week and
purchased one. Yep, no restraint here with this gal !
Have I ever told you that...
I love coconut??

{Marie Callendar pie in case you are wondering}

Very thankful for the blessings in my life today~

Maries pies are to die for... Many times I buy hers instead of making my own... Her berry berry is awesome..... Cherry delicious... By far the best ones out there.....

Oh my Gosh, Sandi, I LOVE coconut cream pie! We'll have to give it a try. Didn't know if I'd invited you to come and visit my new Bible Study blog. Swing by if you can.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Coconut pie sounds divine (although lemon meringue and key lime are my absolute favorites). What a wonderful ministry -- to be able to feed those who have fallen on hard times. That will certainly help to bring people together. I loved all your whites! And the leaves, the wonderful Fall foliage, the trees -- just so absolutely beautiful! All the best to you, :) Tammy

Hi Sandi, thank you for joining my followers. I will do yours, but I can't get a pitcure to work, it's just a silhouette.

I love you header with the dish of buttons. I love buttons.

What a wonderful idea, your lunch is, even if people have enough to eat, the community building that is happening is wonderful.

You jest! Heading over to store tomorrow. Yum! The Berry Berry IS excellent but it needs whip cream or ice cream & a quick warm zap in microwave ... OMG! My mouth is watering thinking of this ... like I need more junk in my trunk ... chuckle.

Hugs, TTFN ~Marydon

Sandi, I have bought this pie a couple of times before and scarfed it right down both times. Coconut cream is my very favorite cream pie.
I hope that you continue to be able to reach those who may be seeking something more in their life.
