"Where’s the chocolate?"

Do you ever look for chocolate about 10:30 a.m. or 2:00 p.m.? Actually, for me, chocolate can be enjoyed anytime. It really does give your mood a pick-up late in the morning or afternoon.

The catch is, you only need about two ounces. With Valentine’s Day coming up, a wise man thinks cocoa bean. My new sweatshirt says, "I love chocolate and the man who buys it."

What I’d like to propose, is a little tweaking to the Heart Day shirt. "I love chocolate and my God who created it."

Isn’t He an amazing God?! He even thought of chocolate. Each of us, and every speck of our world, has been created by our God who even thought of chocolate, to raise our mood and give us a sense of well-being. And some people say, creation was an accident of nature, a big bang. Just think of the voice of God calling out your name across the vast, unimaginable void of space. What a sound (a bang) that would have been! And the echo is still faintly heard, every time you bite into a piece of chocolate. Let us pray:

"God of all good things, we lift up your holy name in praise. We thank you that your kingdom has come to those who believe. May your will be done within it. We ask that you bless us with eyes that see your work, with ears that hear love when it’s spoken, and the touch of a friend when we need one. May we always remember your blessings and rehearse what we have, rather than what we do not. May we hear your sweet voice calling our name on the breath of the wind. May we smell your fragrant perfume of love that reminds us you are near. Thank you for all your blessings and gifts, even chocolate. In the name of Jesus our redeemer I pray. Amen"

"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine."
