Good Advice

When I was a kid,
my mom
liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then.
And I
remember one night in particular when she had made
breakfast after a
long, hard day at work.
On that evening
so long
ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely
biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if
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!"

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. But what I've learned over the
years is that
learning to accept each others faults - and choosing to
celebrate each
others differences - is one of the most important keys to
creating a
healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

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

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

"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
fine.!.!.!.! And PLEASE pass this along to someone who has
your life... I just did"!
