Burned biscuits

Going to church always make me happy. It lessens the problems and stress that I have inside.  It is also great to give thanks for all the Blessings that we received and listen to the word of God. Just today, hubby and I attended Sunday mass at St. Joseph Parish near our area. When the mass was ended, I grab their Sunday announcement paper. There was a story included in one page. I copied the story for you guys to read including the message of Father John (Parish Priest). The story reminds me of a friend of mine close to my heart. She told me one time when she and her husband had a little argument, she cooked him a burned steak...lol. And her husband didn't even say anything but happily ate the steak ;). It is very similar to this story, have a look! I got inspired, hope you too as well :). Be Blessed!
Burned Biscuits --Author unknown
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 has 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 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 like 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 burned biscuit never hurt anyone!

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. But what I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults- and choosing to celebrate each others differences- is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And, that's my prayer for you today. He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!

Your are Loved,

Father John
