When I was a kid, my mom would prepare
special breakfast every now and then. And I remember one night in
particular, after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my
mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front
of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did
was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at
school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember
watching him smear butter and jelly on that biscuit and eat every bite!
When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom
apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he
said: Honey, I love burned biscuits.
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he
really liked his biscuits burned.
He wrapped me in his arms and said, Your Momma put in a hard day at work
today and she's real tired. And besides - a little burnt biscuit never hurt
anyone! You know, life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people.
I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and
anniversaries just like everyone else.
What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's
faults - and choosing to celebrate each other's differences - is one of the
most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting
And that's my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good,
the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God.
Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a
relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!
We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base
of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!
Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - keep it in
your own. God Bless You..... now, and always....
So Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burnt one will do just fine!!!!
