Well, ok, this is his face, but I wish you could've seen my eight-year-old son Christopher's initial reaction!!
We stopped at Starbucks for a little Saturday afternoon treat, and he saw something he didn't expect to see for another, oh, 5 or 6 months!!
Today is March 30th. We're a week into spring. The temperature has to rise another 20 to 30 degrees and hit 100 in the summer before it starts to cool down again in the fall and we can all enjoy pumpkin spice treats.
Except that today, my son, who loves pumpkin scones, looked at the food options today at Starbucks and saw one!!
When I ordered it, the barista looked at me like, "Ma'am? You realize it's Spring. We don't have (glances at the food section) OH! Ok, I guess we do have pumpkin scones! What would you like with that?"
Lol! I had to laugh!!
Sometimes we get unexpected treats at the "wrong time". Or in the wrong season. We can be adamant about things being "impossible", so we don't even dare to ask.
What if we could get a treat that we are not supposed to get because it's not the right time yet?
God says in the Bible, ask and you shall receive. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened.
Why not knock? You might just get a pumpkin scone in the spring!
