Matamoros






One of my most favorite things to do when I visit south Texas, is to visit Mexico. It's a little less than 30 minutes drive from Harlingen through the International Bridge in Brownsville, to a town called Matamoros. A large group of us crossed the border in three cars, on an express mission to get some world famous goat meat. I absolutely love goat meat! In Mexico it is referred to as "Cabrito" and is served roasted and tender, with tortillas and all the "fixins." It was my family's first trip to Mexico, and my wife even found time to visit twice, going to another town called Nuevo Progresso. I am posting some of the photos of our foray into Mexico. In case you're wondering what the spiritual principle for today is, I figured you'd be too preoccuppied with the tantalizing photos of cabrito to worry about that. But just in case you need a little something extra, remember that you'll never really know how good something tastes until you try it, so don't knock goat meat until you've tried it. I'm not sure what that translates into in a spiritual context but I'm pretty sure you'll come up with something. Cabrito anyone?

Here's my translation... sometimes God's stuff looks weird. Like something that He wouldn't do. So we disregard it as "poor taste." When in fact, He's doing something new and out of your box. Once you step out of the box and join Him, you'll find there are a lot of other people out there enjoying His new stuff, too. :)

Great translation... maybe you should be writing this blog. I couldn't have come up with a better interpretation of goat meat than that!
