Simple Start – Thankful Heart

The best meal of the day, for me, is breakfast. It is one of the great pleasures of life to wake up to a steaming cup of coffee and the aroma of my favorite comfort food wafting through the air and into my head like a great memory.

I was raised in the South on biscuits and gravy, bacon and eggs and grits and sausage and pancakes, etc, etc. Of course, these days, I enjoy lighter fare too – yogurt and fruit and oatmeal or egg white omelets with wheat toast. Yum!

My husband and I enjoy cooking a big breakfast on weekends – usually biscuits and eggs or french toast or waffles…and the occasional pastry, of course. But my go-to sunrise meal most days during the week is good ol’ cereal.

I LOVE cereal. Over the years, I’ve sampled many different brands and found a couple of favorites that I’ve enjoyed for breakfast, lunch and even dinner sometimes.

I am thankful for the simple pleasure of a tasty meal to start my day. But I am especially thankful for the way God feeds my hungry soul.

“Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” Psalm 107:8-9 NKJV

Today, I am praying that He will fill your hunger and satisfy your longings. Be blessed!

  4. My husband is a cereal lover–he eats it at all times of the day and NIGHT!

    Me, give me the good cup of hot coffee every morning–one of my greatest pleasures in life.

  5. I am a huge cereal fan. I like it in the morning or just any old time during the day. The “crunchier the granola” the better I like it too.

    And here’s a confession (’cause it’s good for the soul…) I even like the chomp chomp chomp sound that it makes when it’s really crunchy.

    It’s one of my uncouth simple pleasures!

  6. Our youngest daughter LOVES cereal so much we bought her a cereal dispenser….funny girl. “Fill my hunger and satisfy my longings”…hmmm, lined up with God that sounds GRAND!
