Breakfast with Nana

Habit is habit, and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.

  ~ Mark Twain

What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole.
 ~ 1 Peter1:3
Habit…we don’t have habits that are instant. At least I don’t believe I do.  The good and the bad have to be coaxed  in or out, down the stairs and out the door or down the stairs and into …whatever it needs to be.  There is a Cheerios commercial running right now that uses habit in a lovely way.
The child asks if his mom used to have Cheerios for breakfast with Nana.  The mom responds “Yes.” 
The child inquires further, “Were Cheerios the same back then?” 
Mom says, “Cheerios have been pretty much the same forever.”
Child says, “So, when we have Cheerios it’s kind of like having breakfast with Nana.”
The mother’s breath catches and then she says “Yeah.”  And “Yeah again with a joyful upturn.”  And then, “You’re so smart.”
As you face this habit of communion this World Communion Sunday, remember, It’s like having bread with Jesus…all over this world.
Today, relax your prejudices, political and otherwise. Let the Lord shine through the simple things, like breakfast.
Because of Him,
