six year old brandon decided one saturday morning to fix his parents pancakes he found a big bowl and spoon pulled out a chair 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 a floury trail on the floor which by now had a few tracks left by his kitten brandon was covered with flour and getting frustrated he wanted this to be something very good for mom and dad but it was getting bad he didnt 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 worked suddenly he saw his kitten licking from the bowl of mix and reached to push her away knocking the egg carton to the floor frantically he tried to clean up his monumental mess but slipped on the eggs getting his pajamas white and sticky and just then he saw dad standing at the door big crocodile tears welled up in brandons eyes all he wanted to do was something good but he had made a terrible mess he was sure a scolding was comming maybe even a spanking but his father just watched him then walking through the mess he picked up his crying son hugged him and loved him getting his pajamas white and sticky in the process thats how god deals with us we try to do something good in life but it turns out a mess our marriage gets all sticky or we insult a friend or we cant stand our job or our health goes sour sometimes we just stand there in tears because we can't think of anything else to do thats when god picks us up and loves us and forgives us even though some of our mess gets all over him but just we might mess up we can't stop trying to make pan cakes for god or for others sooner or later we'll get it right and then they'll be glad you tried i was and wondered if i had any wounds needing to be healed friendships that need rekindling or three words needing to be said sometimes i love you can heal and bless remind everyone of your friends that you love them even if you think they don't love back you would be amazed at what three words a smile and a reminder like this can do just in case i haven't told you lately i love you please pass some of this love on to others suppose one morning you were called to god would all your friends know you love them
