I just left my Saturday visit to BiLO. My third graders won the monthly competition, so I had to get ingredients for their chosen prize: an Oreo cake, not cupcakes. As I was getting what I needed from the baking section, I noticed a sale on chocolate sprinkles and peppermint sugar. $2 a bottle---not a big deal, except they were "extras," not necessary. I thought of Lucas, who had requested chocolate sprinkles. The peppermint sugar would go well with my planned Christmas cupcakes. I said a little prayer to God to make sure He provides for what I need if I make this little splurge. He knows my paychecks will take a hit for the n ext year. On the way home, it hit me: this is what He wants. He doesn't want Sundays only+ He wAnts Monday through Saturday, too. This is what a relationship with Him means. He wants us talking to him over chocolate sprinkles for a brown-haired little 9 year-old named Lucas, too.
