One of my favorite things in the world is to watch Bradley eat a brownie.
I stayed up late last night making brownies for Ernie’s Christmas Party at work today. (and a pumpkin pie.. I was up until 2 am..) Anyways, I reserved a small amount of brownies for Brad today, knowing he loves them so much!
This morning he woke up so happy, trotted in here and started to play. I made him eggs, knowing full well not to show him the brownies until he ate something of substance or forget about a good breakfast. After his last bite I took him over to the stove and showed him his plate of chocolate brownies. (I couldnt wait!!)
I watched him eat one, I told him he could have one. His eyes practically rolled in the back of his head as he ate a bite. (He is definitely my son when it comes to chocolate.) He told me how he really liked brownies and i told him how much I liked to watch him eat one. Time stands still when Brad has a brownie. He says, “Mom, how did you get these??” I told him I made them for him as a surprise! He smiled so big with chocolate in his teeth.
Saying all this today because it got me thinking of this scripture..
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! -Matthew 7:11
I wonder when the Lord gives us gifts, if He likes to watch us with them. Enjoy them, love Him for them. “Ask, How did you do this for me? Thank you, Lord!” We are fashioned after Him, some parts of our personalities must be like His. I bet this is one. Dont you love to give good things to your kids? Truely, this is La Dulce Vita… The Good Life!!
