peanut-butter fingers

our daily bread… fresh from the oven

smothered in peanut-butter and honey

breakfast each morning…

with smeared fingers we sit together, open the Bible, each to his own, side by side while

dawn breaks like eggs across blue-china sky and drips onto scripture-page.

husband and i sit in morning silence and devour, word and bread… crumbs falling, forsaken onto my pregnant belly.

i pray that somehow, this daily ritual of dropping-crumbs will feed my unborn child…

that he will wake from the womb knowing his Maker

that he will hunger after God more than any earthly morsel

and that his own little fingers might smudge holy pages

with peanut-butter

…in this breaking of fast

…in this feasting on faith.

    I cannot think of a sweeter, wiser, more loving prayer for your little one. I pray for you daily – for a safe delivery and healthy, sweet little one.

    ❤ That's so cool, this morning I prayed for your little guy … pretty much what you wrote (re: relationship w/ God etc.) not that I'm tooting my own horn or anything … just thought it seemed to be divine intervention ~
    love you!! any day now =)
