Yep. We are having breakfast for dinner tonight! I am currently frying up leftover baked potatoes and thinking of my first dad. As I shared in A Tale of Three Fathers, my biological father died when I was thirteen and home fried potatoes always makes me think of him.
When I was little, he would wake me up early on the weekends to help him cook breakfast, especially if there were leftover baked potatoes in the fridge. Oh what a memory! I would sit on the counter while he cooked on an electric skillet and we would talk and laugh, just the two of us. Boy, what I would give to be sitting on the counter right now talking with him!
We have a Father in heaven who longs to wake us up early too. He beckons us to sit on the counter, just the two of you, and talk and laugh while He is busy orchestrating life around us.
I encourage you to get up early tomorrow and spend some time with your Father. There is so much to discuss, so much to learn, so much to share and He loves you so much! Seek Him fervantly every day!
Excuse me while I get back to frying potatoes. Have a great weekend!
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
