When I was a Child…

When I was a child, I thought Miracle Whip was the way to go.  But now that I have become a woman, I know Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise is heaven on a sandwich.  Especially a tomato sandwich, with kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.  O yeah, baby.

I also saw things, when I was a child {situations, memories, people, past wounds and relationships}, without understanding and the wisdom of years.  Some things now, I have to ask God to help me see as redeemed and as He saw it, from His vantage point.  Like a grown-up.  And because of love.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.   1 Corinthians 13.11 NIV

I wasn’t a big tomato fan as a kid, either.  See?  Maturity does help.
