Pass Me The Biscuitts!
This was sent to me and I thought that I would share it here, because
each of you has enriched my life in some way. Thank you for being my friend.
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 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 ugly
burned biscuit. He ate every bite of that thing... never made a face
nor uttered a word about it!
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 every now and then."
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 burned biscuit never hurt anyone!"
As I've grown older, I've thought about that many times. 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 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 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
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." So, please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burned one will
do just fine.
And PLEASE pass this along to someone who has enriched your life. Be
kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of
"Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil - it has no point."

Excellent, as always, Doug----It's these "little" lessons that are the foundation of our Christian walk.

That was great, Doug. Life would be a harmony if we all lived with this insight.

One of the main points of Christianity is to take the focus off of ourselves and transfer it to God and to fellow human beings.
Figuring out our true place in the universe.

Your father was married to my wife? She burns the cat heads every time she bakes them. Well you can not see it after you put the sawmill gravy on them or mix up a little bit of butter and sour wood honey. I better not complain it has fill this old fat belly many a time. Thanks Doug for the enlightenment.
