Thank God for the What-Not!

Every other Sunday is Dinner after church at my house. Alternating weeks, we eat at my parent's home. Being a lazy bum today we had sandwiches and chips (in my own defense, last time, I fixed chicken and dumplings, mashed potatoes, green beans, biscuits, and a cake).

Today, we sat down to eat and younger son said the blessing, "Dear God, thank you for Cheetos and what-not on the table. Oh, and help us be good. In Jesus' name, amen."

Hmmm. I bet you can guess what his favorite food on the table was. It was all we adults could do to keep from bursting out laughing.

But, isn't there a lesson in it? We get excited about the Cheetos, but God provides the "what-not" as well. Aren't we to be grateful for the parts we are less excited about, too?

Out of the mouth of babes....
