The caption read, “Even your eggs are happy when you start your day with prayer.” The picture showed a carton of eggs with happy, smiling faces. It caught my attention and made me realize how prayer changes us.”

“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.”
Psalm 145:18 (NRSV)

It seems worldwide the heat of politics is blazing hot and the reports of hurricanes, tornadoes among other natural disasters are overwhelming to both my thoughts and prayers. I often feel so overwhelmed that I don’t even have the energy to utter a prayer. It was so refreshing to see smiling eggs put a smile on my face and joy in my step that I paused to meditate and pray. So often eggs are a topic of conversation in both our dietary needs as well as symbolical in nature.

I imagine we all have an egg story and lots of tags to add on. How often have you heard, which comes first the chicken or the egg? 🥚🥚🥚

The dozen eggs sparked my thoughts and started a prayer storm within my inner being asking have I been calling on the Lord in TRUTH? (reference scripture above) If so, the Lord is very near to all the troubles that boggle my mind. Yes, I can balance an egg on a teaspoon. Paint a smiley face on an egg. Tell an Easter Story from an egg. Hide a egg to delight a child’s find. Let my imagination do the work and I may just find “a good old egg” smiling at me.

🍳 Try It!
