  1. Principle Lesson Over The Blessing:
    My daughter and I was leaving IHOP Saturday, after having a wonderful breakfast. I saw my grandmother’s friend of whom I haven’t seen in a long time, and I got so excited that I chatted with her, but forgot to pay the bill. I drove to DC, while there I remember I forgot to pay the bill, so i drove all the way back to Baltimore to that same IHOP to ensure that the… bill got paid. I told the guy that I didn’t pay my bill from earlier, and i wanted to pay it. He looked on the computer and said, “No you’re good, you paid it!” I said, “No I didn’t pay it and I want to pay it”. He went in the back and discovered it was a written off ticket. My friend Carol Johnson was eating with her friends and walked up and said, “Richard, this is my brother” talking about the manager. So she and I chatted, then I paid the bill. So, another guy said,”Man, you came back all the way from Washington to pay a 16 dollar bill, you really didn’t want to miss out on that Blessing?” I said it’s just the Principle of the matter. See, we ought not do Right just because we think we are going to get something out of it; we ought to do right just because it’s the right thing to do, not just for a blessing. It’s the Principle of the matter. Someone will say,”Cook, don’t you think that’s a little overboard! ” To that person I would,” it reveals where your Principles are which is linked to your Character! ” Never do something for a Blessing, just do it because it’s the right thing to do! We are already blessed and our steps are already ordered so we don’t have to manipulate anyone or anything. Afterwards, I went to the barbershop to visit my buddy and my other buddy was there with whom my ex girl friend was cheating on me with. He and I were so tight, but  all this time I didn’t know it was him until I walked in the barbershop and my barber revealed it to me …Well, Cook what did you do????? I will tell you later in Part 2
    Recipes From Richard Cook Spiritually Profound“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,

    nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;

    it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one

    when he discovers that someone else believes in him

    and is willing to trust him with his friendship.”

    “We’re never so vulnerable than when we trust someone –

    but paradoxically, if we cannot trust,

    neither can we find love or joy.”
