Being back on the east side of town has kept me in a nostalgic mood. I re-visit old places and even lament the absence of some of my favorite places as a young child. The neighborhood looks a lot different than it did the last time I was an actual resident here.
Some good changes have finally come to the area while like Walmart and 7-11. This is huge because growing up we never really had national named stores here, mainly regional names. While taking in the newness, I stumbled upon a small family restaurant in the area: “Oh Taste And See Soul Food” (Psalm 34:8)
I have tasted and I see clearly, this food is DELICIOUS!! It’s like Sunday afternoon in each bite! They can cook in there…my Lord! I will be back, for sure! In 1 Peter 2:2 the bible says: “Like newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word that ye may grow thereby. Verse three says: “If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is good!”
Well…let me begin my testimony…”giving honor to God and the kitchen staff…” I ate there and made a solemn vow that I shall return! The Lord is in his holy temple, you know the one right there, off Vaughn…let the dining room keep silent! Once our plates hit the table we had to say grace twice, one more time to tell the Lord thank ya-We didn’t know it was gonna be this good! Hallelujah, can I have another?!?
We indulged and imbibed to our hearts content and then it was time to say farewell. You’ll be glad you stopped by, the Dowell’s would be glad to have you.
