The Breakfast Post

Hello, Friends!

This is the post where I brainstorm breakfast ideas – you know, so that I have them all (ideas and links, if applicable) in one place while I’m doing meal planning. Which I’m a tad behind on. Again. :p

If you have other ideas/recipes/etc., *please* share!

Here goes:

That’s what I’ve got so far. Please chime in with some of your favorite breakfast recipes.

A Litany for Today

I woke up with these lines beginning to form in my head. Here, I will attempt to give them voice.

 

Oh God of the wind and the rain,

Help me overcome my unbelief.*

Oh God of mountain-moving fame,

Help me overcome my unbelief.

Oh God who really knows my name,

Help me overcome my unbelief.

 

Oh God who sent His Son to die,

Help me overcome my unbelief.

Oh God who breathed my soul to life,

Help me overcome my unbelief.

Oh God who gives me strength to try,

Help me overcome my unbelief.

 

Oh God who tidal waves my sin,

Help me overcome my unbelief.

Oh God whose strength I can rest in,

Help me overcome my unbelief.

Oh God, please help me once again,

Help me overcome my unbelief.
