Oatmeal All Around

This morning after worship the five of us were hungry. As we were deciding what to do for lunch and tossed around the idea of visiting the new Mexican restaurant, or eating hamburgers, someone said, "How about one of Daddy's big pans of oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar?" That was the one suggestion that made us all respond with a resounding, "Yes!" Paul looked rather surprised that, given a choice, everyone would want his cooking above everything else mentioned. As we gathered around our own table, bowing our heads to thank God for the food, I was especially thankful that we were all able to eat, and that the simple comfort of a steaming bowl of oatmeal was enough to make everyone happy.

The girls are healthy today but tired. We are headed to our beds for naps. Could it be the touch of maple flavor Paul put into the oatmeal that has made us feel content and dreamy? Whatever it was, we are ready for an afternoon snooze. Enjoy your Sabbath rest!
