Enjoy Your Strawberries (Ephesians 5:20)

I made some oatmeal for Bishop today. As I prepared the breakfast I thought, “It would be good to add some fruit to the fiber of the oatmeal.” Upon seeing the bowl Bishop said, “Why did you put strawberries in my oatmeal?” As I exercised he worked on the bowl of stuff his dad had prepared. Later I noticed that some of the oatmeal was gone but all of the strawberries were gone. We do not like change but our Father often introduces blessings through change. Enjoy your strawberries.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28, NKJV)

giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:20)

The original post was created 9 September 2011. At the time our family was in a world of hurt and still living in San Antonio. In the midst of a mess it helped to write down what was happening in our lives.
