It shall be this one's duty to offer recipes and menus. These will be easy to follow, and tested to be good enough that a slave would allow his Master to serve it to Master's Guests and reflect only the best of his Master.
For far worse than Master's anger is Master's disappointment.

chicken is cooking, peel the husks off of the corn, wrap each ear
with a piece or two of bacon. Then wrap up each ear in foil well. You

for the last bit of cooking on the chicken, put the well wrapped ears
in a pan next to the chicken.

of the Independent Slave
we celebrate Independence Day. The day our country was born. The day
these thirteen colonies decided “we can do this ourselves!”
England was not going to let us. They put up a fight. Those men,
mostly farmers, took on the most organized military power in the
world. All for the right to be independent.
are often to be avoided. Every person, slave or Master faces their
particular challenges with different abilities. One can not compare
how hard it is for them any more than compare how they view color,
you don't know how they see it. At most, the thought that others have
faced their difficulties can provide us with the question: “why
many slaves, the thought of becoming independent strikes fear. Yet we
know that we MUST be independent to even be a slave. Being a slave
has become the most important driving force for our lives. Once we
have felt what slavery to a Master brings, we would literally walk
through fire to maintain that.
independence does NOT mean a separation nor an abandonment. It does
not have to equal being alone, or being deserted. What independence
should encompass is developing our own ability to maintain ourselves.
loves old cars! My mom told me that my first word was “car”! So
slave uses the thought: “I can't offer to drive someone to the
doctors if I haven't taken care of my car.” By extrapolation: “How
can I serve, if I have not taken care of myself.” Does this mean
that slave's have to become self centered? Not if you want to be a
we must adjust our viewpoints. Our culture has drummed into us to see
things based on “what's in it for me”. As slaves, we have
discovered on our own, what we must see is how to “serve another”
(what's in it for them?) Thus our slave's dilemma!
I suggest a change in the angle of our view.
if we see our tasks from the point of: “Which of my own good
abilities, do I use to handle this the best way?” That might not
appear to be a big difference, but it is. It is a difference that
night Master has slave ask himself: “Did I do the best I could to
reflect what I have learned?” What I have learned becomes one of my
abilities. The more abilities I have, the better I can serve. The
better I reflect that training, the better I can reflect on my
Master. As I learn, as I grow, it all becomes a statement of how
good my Master is!
is a praise for my Master, to show the world how much I have been
is this being independent? It shows strength and pride in my
subservience. It gives value to my gift. How can I truly honor this
Man with a gift or tribute that I do not feel is the Best?
how does a slave get to that different angle, that different
viewpoint? How does a slave become an independent slave? Well, it
does NOT HAVE to mean walking out the door. (although there might
come a time when that is the best and only path to take). To build
your self assurance, to build your abilities is just like building a
muscle in the gym. Take your time! Stretch yourselves. Start small.
Repetition, Repetition, Repetition! Stretch again. Don't give up.
to yourself, how long has it taken me to get this weak? Getting
strong will not be an overnight process. Give yourself time and
praise. Stretch yourself by thinking of small steps you can take. Ask
Master, if you have one. If not, ask another Master. This is a
core thing that Masters enjoy! Work on how you approach a
problem. Start small. Then stretch yourself again when you have
accomplished it, by thinking about what you have done, how you viewed
things, how you thought about things. You change your world when you
change the way you think.
at night, ask yourself, did I improve? Did I reflect what I have
learned? If so, celebrate a little, not too much because tomorrow you
are going to have to do more. If not, don't beat yourself up, just
be more determined than ever tomorrow you will! Wipe off any dust of
failure you might feel clinging on you and rest. Each day is new,
will you be? Each day can be great, can you make it great? That
should be a resounding YES!
