Six -year-old Brandon decided one Saturday morning to
fix his  parents pancakes. He found a big bowl and spoon, pulled a
chair up to the counter, opened the cupboard and pulled out the heavy
 flour canister, spilling it on the floor.

He scooped some of the  flour into the bowl with his
hands, mixed in most of a cup of milk  and added some sugar, leaving
 floury trail on the floor which by now  had a few tracks left by his

Brandon was covered  with flour and getting frustrated. He wanted
 to be something very good for Mom and Dad, but it was getting very 

He didn't know what to do next, whether to put it all
into the oven or on the stove and he didn't know how the stove
 Suddenly he saw his kitten licking from the bowl of mix and reached

 tried to clean up this monumental mess but slipped on the eggs,
 his pajamas white and  sticky.

And just then he saw Dad standing at the door. Big
crocodile tears welled up in Brandon's eyes. All he'd  wanted to do
something good, but he'd made a
terrible mess.  He was sure a scolding was coming, maybe even a
 spanking. But his father just watched him.

Then, walking through the mess, he picked up his crying son, hugged

That's how  God deals with us. We try to do something
good in life, but it turns into a mess. Our marriage gets all sticky
 we insult a friend,  or we can't stand our job, or our health goes

Sometimes we just stand there in tears because we can't think of
anything else to do.  That's when God picks us up and loves us and forgives us, even though some of our mess gets all  over Him.

But just because we might mess up, we can't stop trying to "make
 pancakes" for God or for others.  Sooner or later we'll  get it
right,and then they'll
be glad we tried...

Please  pass some of this love on to others....suppose
one morning you were called to God; do all your friends know you
love them?

I was thinking... and I wondered if I had any wounds
needing to be healed, friendships that need rekindling or three
 needing to be said, sometimes, "I love you" can heal & bless!  Remind
 every one of your friends that you love them.  Even if you think they
 don't love back, you would be amazed at what those three little
words, a
 smile, and a
reminder like this can do.

Never stop "making  pancakes"  and never stop loving!
