Burnt Biscuits

I was forwarded the message below in an email and it related to my quest to figuring out love & I'm thankful for God each & every day I wake up because of the message & theme of burnt biscuits meaning to accept the good, the bad and the ugly in all relationships in life.

Burnt Biscuits
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 had 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 me 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

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good
Night and I asked him if he really liked his
Biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his
And said, "Your Momma put in a hard day at
Work today and she's real tired. And besides -
A little burnt 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. That you
Will learn to take the good, the bad, and the
Ugly parts of your life and lay them
 at the
Feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only
One who will be able to give you a relationship
Where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!

We could extend this to any relationship. In

Fact, understanding is the base of any
Relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-
Child or friendship!

"Don't put the key to your happiness in
Someone else's pocket - keep it in your own."

God Bless You..... Now, and Always....

So Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burnt
One will do just fine.!.!.!.!
