Why is your blog called 12basketsfull?

My blog is called twelve baskets full because it is named after my Personal Chef business.

Why is your business called twelve baskets full?

My business is called twelve baskets full because the very first time I read Mark 6:41-44, it spoke to me.   Jesus fed five thousand men (not to mention their wives and children which I imagine weren’t counted back then) with the lunch of a small boy.  Not only did they eat and were satisfied, there were 12 baskets full of leftovers!  When I was faced with the opportunity to start my business, this scripture spoke to my heart about believing not in the limitations you see, but the blessings you don’t see. It spoke to my mind about taking steps in faith.

My prayer is that it speaks to you.

             “41And taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven and said a blessing and broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the people. And he divided the two fish among them all. 42And they all ate and were satisfied. 43And they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish. 44And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.” (Mark 6:41-44 ESV)
