I saw God at the Cracker Barrel

I ate at Cracker Barrel this morning.  Had my usual eggs, plain hash browns lightly cooked, and biscuts and gravy.  Probably not the healthiest breakfast but once in a while won’t hurt.

Across from me was a man and woman with two young children.  After their food was delivered, I saw them all bow and pray together.  Nothing loud or long, but just a quick word of thanks.  As I watched them, the little girl looked over at me and I smiled back.  I thought to myself about how important it is for families to pray together…..

Have you heard the saying, “The family that prays together, stays together?” 

So, I saw God at the Cracker Barrel, not with a loud voice or from a screaming preacher, but in the smile of a little girl whose family prayed before the meal.

I’m going to remember that smile for a long time after I’ve forgotten her face.  But more than her smile, I’ll remember her testimony of where she stands with the God of the Universe.  I’ll remember her testimony of graditude and thankfulness we all take for granted.  I’ll remember her parents loved her so much that they have already shown her to love the Lord!

Maybe I’ll eat lunch at Cracker Barrel ….. Christ is amazing!
