and that is a finer thing!
My twelve year old, Matt, must be having a major growth spurt.
Yesterday, for instance, he ate 3 bowls of cheerios before school.
The boys had an appointment so I went through a drive thru on the way back to school (I know, bad mom). Matt ate one of the new thick hamburgers from Burger King, french fries and then asked for my fries (which was fine because my hips didn’t need them anyway).
For dinner, he had three heaping bowls of the ham and bean soup I made plus a sleeve of whole wheat crackers.
Then he actually left his friend’s house where all the neighbor kids were playing basketball to make sure that his dad and I had not eaten all of the apple cobbler I made for dessert. That was just the food he ingested in ONE day!
This boy is obsessed with food!
And it struck me, after reading posts like this, that our ability to feed him whenever he is hungry and have a fully stocked pantry is a finer thing.
A thing that I too often take for granted.
Father God, thank you for the ability to feed my children when they are hungry. My heart hurts for those children around the world and even in our own backyard that wonder where the next meal is coming and even if it will come. Watch over them Lord and incite the hearts of your people to do what they can to help. Help me to always be grateful for the blessings in my life. ~Amen
