Mae Mae’s Happy Table brings home cooking and home-spun wisdom to YouTube. Mae Mae, with her husband Tuck on the camera, has recently added a weekly meal video, with each item explained and likely detailed in a separate video. This week, we got even more. Mae Mae had been visiting relatives and live-streamed a meal at a restaurant. This prompted Karens to attack and Mae Mae responded in the strength of the Lord. Never mind The Rock, do you smell what Mae Mae’s cooking?
Here is a delicious, homely meal of green beans from Tuck’s garden, rolls from the store, sweet tea (naturally), and a delicious pot roast.
Now, here is Mae Mae breaking down the pot roast, sharing a bit from her recent journey, and then talking about Americans becoming fearful, while she and her house will trust in the Lord.
One young lady came on [social media]. You know I’ve told you guys I do not play around with people coming to my channel sayin’ nasty stuff and doing, you can do all you want to behind my back and be fake and all of that, but when you come directly at me with something I know you being just disrespectful for nuthin’, I’m gonna block you. No if ands or buts. And I don’t even be led to respond, because you can’t respond to evil and nastiness.
I’m gonna tell you what she said if I can remember it. Some of you may have seen the comment before I was able to take it down. She was like, oh wow, we’s out like traveling and stuff like that with the virus and stuff going on and how she just felt sorry for the, she called them the “front line waitresses” and the people that was waiting on us at the restaurant, that they had to be subjected to. [. . .]
And I said, what that silly child was talking about, because that restaurant was full of people, in there minding their own business, not hers, and the workers act like they was glad to be at they job. They were just as nice and polite as they could be, doing they job. And I was like, what is she saying? And then, like I said, I kept praying over it, and then I said, oh. Then it came to me.
People have started to operate in fear. And you can feel it. And that’s what Satan wants. He want us to start operating in fear to get our mind weakened so if we get affected with that virus, we gonna be in a bad way. Our mind is not gonna be where it need to be to fight off something like that.
I said, oh, okay, he pretty smart, as to what he doing. ‘Cause, you know I’m talking about the children and also telling you guys that I was gonna pray and not worry, and that was the way I was gonna leave it. I was going to do what the people in charge was telling us to do to control. Some people say do what the CDC says, and in doing that I trust that who our leader is in this country is getting the best people over it, that’s not going to play any games with it. But, I think what’s going on, people listening is leaning to the media. And that’s not cool, because I’m listening to some of this stuff that they, I call it, well I won’t say what I call it.
What they putting out, mmm-mm. If you got a weak mind, oh my God! If you got a weak mind. They turn everything around.
‘Cause me . . . (I’m not worried about browning [the roast] too much guys, cause it’s gonna be in that crockpot.) . . . ‘Cause my husband and I, went to and listened to it. I was like, you tell me what’s going on, and sometime I listen to some of the YouTubers and stuff about it, but when [President Trump] was first doing the briefing every day, I was listening to that.
And then when I heard these other people’s take on it, I said how in the world did they arrive at that? I said they are deliberately trying to put fear in the people and make them think that the person in charge is lying. And I’m like, okay, if the person in charge is lying, who is you to tell that he’s lying? But I tell you one thing I know, I don’t know if he is [lying], God knows, but one thing I can say from listening to you: you telling a lie, and the truth ain’t in ya. That wasn’t what was said.
Use your common sense. Because these people are really directing the narrative in a powerful Satan way. They are trying to turn things around. [Tells the story of her local media hyping but failing to report recovery rates and stories]
There is much more there, from a woman, supported by her husband, who we are told is not supposed to hold these thoughts and feelings.
Still too much stress and politics? Heading into the weekend, here is the latest mental palate cleanser from Xuefei Yang:
