Today, it became clear to me during "arsenic hour" just how cranky kids can get when they're hungry. My daughter is normally so cheery and sweet, with only happy "bups" being emitted. Today, I began the very first steps of weaning, so her tummy got a little emptier than normal. So, she was crying and Jacob was irritable. It was loads of fun! Finally, I got supper on the table and everyone's mood improved greatly (mine included) and Rachel and I had a lovely time lingering over her food.
Then I got to thinking. Just how cranky, irritable, and whiney do I get, when it's been too long since I last came to Jesus for nourishment? Draw me, Lord to get my daily bread. Fill me with your goodness and love. Quiet me with contentment.
