As Much As You Can Give Me!

I was the oldest child of four in our family. My brother - the fourth child - was born when I was 9 1/2 years old.

Because he was so much younger, my sisters and I were often amused by some of the things he said.

When he was 3, I was 13. And as teenage girls are prone to do, I began the quest to diet. (It's a never-ending quest in my case!) Anyway, I would often ask for half a piece of cake or just a small scoop of ice cream for dessert.

When I would ask for a small serving, Kent would tell my Mom, "I want as much as you can give me!" And we would all laugh.

But as I thought about the April theme for Lovely Branches Ministries, More of God, I remembered Kent and his enthusiastic request. And I thought about how life would change if I embraced God with as much fervor.

Today, head on over to my blog, Food for Thought, at Lovely Branches for "rest of the story." (And while you're there, check out the other blogs by my Lovely Branches friends.)

There's also a link to a dessert that would be perfect for your Easter Sunday table.

I'm linked today to Hear It On Sunday, Use It on Monday at Michelle's Graceful: Faith in the Everyday.


  1. Oh Kim ... Those words, "I want as much as you can give me," filled my heart with such warmth and hope. What a way to start every day, with that prayer on my lips!
