Burnt Biscuits


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
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 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 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!
