While the boys were here recently, I served up some dessert: mint chocolate chip ice cream with whipped cream on top. And I must say, I could truly relate to Callan’s instructions. “Just a little ice cream with lots and lots and lots of whipped cream.” You can tell from the picture, he was one happy camper.
I have often said over the years when asked about dessert, “Yes, I would love some. But hold the dessert and just give me the whipped cream.” Okay, okay, I never actually said it out loud, but it’s definitely what I was thinking in my mind!
Callan and I are of the same mind concerning whipped cream. You can never have too much!
Reflecting Christ to Others
Sharing something in common with one of your grands is a treasured experience. But my prayer as a grandma is that my grands will find something in me they want to share that is much more valuable than a love for whipped cream: a desire to love God and know Him more each day.
That’s a tall order, isn’t it! But at this point in my life, it’s the most important thing I can share with my loved ones…especially my well-loved little ones.
…let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Father, my prayer is that my life will truly be a reflection of You with my actions and words pointing others to You, and You alone.
