Jesus and Brownies

This morning in church, my friend Mistie gave and awesome example of God's grace.

Her little girl, 3, was having a not-so-obedient day. After dinner that night she asked for a brownie.

Her mom said "do you think you *deserve* the brownie, after the way you've acted today??"

"No mommy. I don't"

She said " you are right. You don't. But just like we didn't deserve God's love, and we didn't deserve His forgiveness and Jesus' death on the cross. He gave us grace. And He gives us grace every day"

And then she went on to say "and I love you. And because God has given me grace, I'll give you the brownie. Just because I love you. Not because you deserve it"

God's grace! Wow!

He would've been a teenager today!

Today, he would've been 13.

I could've been having a great big birthday party!

But, it's not.

For whatever reason, that's not God's story for me.

And, again, and again, I am reminded of that.

I just read my post from 2010------and sadly enough, my feelings haven't changed one bit.

Jazz Kitchen Express - Home away from home!

Nothing says "Southern food" like Beignets. Yes, pronounced BEN-YAYs!!!

And we love them in the south, and when you go to New Orleans, you MUST, that is a MUST stop at Cafe Du Monde for fresh Beignets.

So, imagine our surprise when we stumbled upon the Jazz Kitchen at Downtown Disney at Disneyland, and they had them!

Oh, sweet mother of pearl!

So, I ate my Turkey Sandwich (mostly because I was starving) but really because my Mama told me that to get to dessert, I had to eat lunch. So, lunch I ate!

and then we dug right into the bag, or warm, powdery goodness!

And, yes, we licked our fingers....and we liked it!!!

And the truth is, maybe we ate 2.

Well, maybe we did. Maybe we didn't!
