Seconds

“We’re doing Thanksgiving small this year,” she said. “Just the basics.” Yeah, I’ve heard that one before. To my mother, “just the basics” is what most people would consider an eight-course meal. So we spent two days baking, mixing, kneading, cooking, and chopping enough food to stock a small country grocery. The end result was a feast that could send a supermodel to Weight Watchers for the next decade. With the dinner table overflowing with food, I swear you could hear the wood groaning from the weight. After stuffing ourselves on enough to feed us for a week, mom smiles and asks, “Would you like seconds?”
It may seem strange, but that’s how I picture God. He gave me “just the basics”: life, a loving family, cherished friends, all the wonder and beauty of the world, a good life filled with enough sadness to make the joys all that more joyful, and most of all, his unending love. And then, after giving me everything I could possibly want, he offers me seconds. “I’ve given you everything, now how would you like eternal life with me?” But unlike that second helping of turkey and stuffing, I can’t turn down God’s offer of “seconds”, knowing that eternal life will be that much more sweeter than the best life here on earth.

Jennifer, I loved your personal, down to earth approach in your article! Made me hungry! Your comparison was great too with a nice smooth transition. Just as a matter of asthetics, I think it would be easier on the eye if you would double space between your paragraphs. Great job! So good to see you participating in the Challenge! God bless! Donna
