If You Give A Pig A Pancake

pigpancake1I just got done reading the book “If You Give A Pig A Pancake” with Jack. I love this whole series of Laura Numeroff books and even though Jack is probably tired of me getting one every time we go to the library, I still do it anyway (-;

The book starts out with a little girl giving a pig a pancake, then the pig wants syrup and gets sticky, so she wants a bath and the rubber duck reminds her of the farm where she grew up, so she gets out of the bath and starts packing a bag to go visit her family. While she is packing she finds a pair of tap shoes, so she puts them on and wants to get dressed up and dance to music….  Anyway, you get the idea. So when I was done reading I realized that I am like this pig. It starts off with God revealing something to me or giving me something that will more than likely change my life for the better (which pancakes will do), but then as I go through the day to day I get distracted by a bunch of little things that take me away from what God wanted to give me or show me in the first place.  After a couple of months of  going in circles, something comes along that reminds me of that thing God revealed to me, so I go back to square one. Ben and I refer to this as “running around the mountain” . I am so glad that just like this little girl is patient with the pig, God is patient with us as we run around the mountain for the fifth time and is willing and ready to move when we finally get it and decide to climb up.

  1. Great post girl…I love that you put our distractions in such a grand comparison…I will be more mindful of what it is I am really seeking and focus on that, not all the little stuff that gets in the way of my goal or God’s desires for me. Thanks for sharing this 🙂
