Y'all. I made a rockin breakfast this morning. Pam (Gammie, M-I-L) brought us some wonderful Panera bagels yesterday when she came to visit, and I went to bed last night knowing exactly what I was going to do with them. I made a bacon, egg and cheese on a french toast bagel. Man, did it hit the spot. (but let's be honest. It doesn't take much to beat the Publix Less Sugar Cinnamon & Apple oatmeal I consume every. single. morning.) I know what you are thinking. She is a genius! Unfortunately, I can't take the credit. Panera actually sells that concoction, I just made it at home. It is the perfect blend of salty and sweet. It's probably the perfect 700 calories as well. ha.
But you know what really made my breakfast so awesome? I had this adorable little man watching over me just "ah goo, da da, ba ba, ga ga, ma ma"n away. Gosh, I love to hear that sweet voice making noise. And noise does it make. Someone likes to hear himself talk!
I plugged in my iPod and probably one of my favorite worship songs came on, "Indescribeable" by Chris Tomlin. What a great way to start the day.
I've started eating breakfast at the table instead of in the Living Room. The Wednesday night class we are going to is about how parents affect their kids faith. We have started out the class talking about how it is more about what your kids SEE in you than what you say. You can talk about faith all day long, but if you don't actually do what you say, then why would your kids? We by far have the youngest child in the class, and at first I kind of viewed it as something we could use in the future. I have changed my mind on that, though. Why shouldn't I start now? With that said, after we eat our breakfast at the table I read some bible stories to him. I had been doing this for a while, but then quit for no good reason. I get frustrated with myself for going through peaks in my ACTIVE faith. Do I have faith? Absolutely. Am I always active with my faith? Unfortunately, not. But I am working on it!
(whew.. this started off with a post about consuming too many calories this morning and ended up with my walk with God! ha!)
