Maybe then the excitement was just that is a grown up food.
Either way, my new plan for grape nuts every morning will not stick long...
Matthew left his bible at my house for the 4 weeks he went home. And that King James Version bible is still being used and enjoyed.
Last night I was also enjoying Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest. I am challenged everyday by this book. My mother tells me she is still challenged daily by this gem as well, and she has used it for years. I treasure mine, and am very grateful that mom and dad thought of it as a birthday gift. Matthew also received one from them for Christmas. I hope he discovers the treasures between the pages as I, and so many others have.
"If you think you are helping lost people with your sympathy and understanding, you are a traitor to Jesus Christ. You must have a right-standing relationship with Him yourself, and pour your life out in helping others in His way-- not in a human way that ignores God. The theme of the world's religion today is to serve in a pleasant, non-confrontational manner. But our only priority must be to present Jesus Christ crucified-- to lift Him up all the time." --Oswald Chambers
"For I have determined not to know any thing among you save Jesus Christ and him crucified." --1 Corinthians 2:2
