I like you when you give me cookies...

I saw this video on you tube the other day and it struck me while I was watching it, that we are so much like that little boy.
We love God when He is blessing us, when things are going according to our plan.  When He withholds our "cookies" we sometimes get a little frustrated with Him.  We think maybe life isn't fair, because someone else seems to have all the "cookies" they want.  However - all cookies, all the time isn't good for little boys, and it's not good for us either! Isn't it wonderful that our God wants the best for us, even when we don't know what it is?

That's a very good observation and analogy. I see how we act like that sometimes. Cute little boy.

My dad used to tell us kids, when life gives us crumbs from the cookie...live with it and enjoy the taste nonetheless.

Wow -- that's too true. He's adorable, but I hope I don't truly think like him.

Very cute. Kids DO say the darnest things. I like how you've used this to remind us of how blessed we are...even when we're waiting for our "cookies".

Hugs!

I love how that little sweetie said, "I love you to, but I don't like you all the time"...who hasn't felt that emotion!
And a little child shall lead them...

Great video, great message. It's easy to forget sometimes that the hard times make us who we are.

I like your blog.
