This morning I poured my bowl of cereal, poured the milk on it, and started eating. I was taking a bite of my Honey Graham Oh's reading the cereal box when the cereal advertising caught my eye. Putting down my spoon, I picked up the cereal box and began reading about Honey Graham Oh's. I learned all about them!!! Amazing what you can learn from a cereal box!! Here's what it said . . .
Honey Graham Oh's . . . Good Things in the Middle!
Oh, What a Cereal!
Why have an ordinary cereal when you can have
one with good things in the middle?
Try Honey Graham Oh's!
Every bite blends the great taste of graham and
real golden honey for a delicious start to the morning.
Honey Graham Oh's also have
vitamins and minerals.
Enjoy every spoonful!
As I finished reading the entire box, I picked up my spoon and started to finish my "Oh's" - with the good things in the middle! Staring at the cereal box, I began to think. (Watch out when I begin to think!!!!!) LOL!! I decided to just re-word the cereal box advertisement in my mind with a little different "twist" for my own life as I started my morning. Here's what I was thinking . . .
God's Word, the Bible . . . Good Things in the Middle! Oh, what a life!
Why have an ordinary life when you can have
one with good things in the middle? . . . Try God's Word!
Every day blends the great taste of God's love and merciful Grace for a delicious start to the morning.
God's Word also has
vitamins and minerals . . .
love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self control.
Enjoy every spoonful of!
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there
is not law."
The Message translation says it this way . . .
"But what happens when we live God's way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard - things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitiments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely."
Oh What a Life!
Start your morning right!
P.S. Do not skip your breakfast - it's the most important meal of the day!
