Some of my happiest times are family dinners! Providing food for our large family isn’t an easy task, but my mom seems to always come through.
This particular time the feast was waiting for the vultures to dig in, but the rolls weren’t quite ready.
We continue to talk, laugh and have a good time while waiting. Then next thing you know my mother was screaming…they’re burnt! Just look the bottoms of these rolls. They’re ruined. My son replies…Oh Gram, we’ll just cut off the burnt part!
Supper was wonderful and we enjoyed the rolls, but you know that to this day my mother still talks about those burnt rolls. With all that fabulous food, all she can remember was the one item that didn’t come out perfect.
Do you tend to dwell on the negative of a situation?
Dwelling on a negative situation only gives it power, it feeds off of you. Hopefully you can learn something from it and press forward!
“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14, NIV)
“And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6, NIV)
Prayer is a powerful tool! Ask your Counselor, he will give you the guidance, strength, direction and motivation to press on! ~Deb
