National Donut Day Giveaway

I didn't know until the day after, but yesterday was National Donut Day. Seems like a date that should be commemorated on this blog. How did I not know?

According to Wikipedia, National Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year, succeeding the Donut Day event created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.

So how does this holiday affect you? Leave a comment with a suggestion for some topic you might like to see discussed, or some aspect of Christianity that seems confusing or gets in the way, or just say hello. I'll send a gift certificate for a box of Dunkin' Donuts (or buy and deliver a box from Pastries Plus if you're local, and maybe even a cup of coffee) to one winner chosen at random (names in a hat). Your odds are good — I think I only have about 10 readers :-). I'll post the winner next week. Thanks!

Donuts remind me of a speech I gave in college--look at the donut, not the hole. Sometimes we get so obsessed with what we don't have that we forget to be thankful for all that we do have...

Here's my story. I bought some donuts at PP the other day. I decided even though I'm a "plain glazed yeast" kind of gal, I know some people like a little more variety and spice in life. I'm OK that they like sprinkles or chocolate--but not for me. But for them--i ordered a bit of everything. They boxed up my assortment. I'm driving to work of course the smell is too hard for me to resist. I open the lid to grab my fave. OH Gee...Great....now their sprinkles and icing have rubbed off on my plain GLAZED YEAST. Why didn't I segregate my donuts!!! Well, i was not a happy camper. But of course I ate it anyway.

Ya know...it was pretty darn good!!! My plain glazed yeast with just a smidgin of sprinkles and chocolate and icing. Just around the edges. Not enough to ruin my donuts....just enought to enhance.

Maybe sometimes...hate to admit it...I judge too guickly on things that are different. Afraid something different will rub off. And if that something different does....maybe it would be the better of me...or at the least. I won't be any less for it.

You probably already have blogged this story and I had a de ja vu' moment while grabbing my donut on the road.

As you travel through life, sister; whatever be your goal: keep your eye upon the donut and not upon the hole!

Funny! How could you have missed that "holiday"? lol But let's see...maybe you could write something about the hole in the donut...or donut holes - God filling the hole in our hearts. Or, you could even write about the circular aspect of a donut...a complete, unbroken circle - never ending, just like God's love. In anycase, don't forget to mark the first Friday of June on your reminders calendar!! Wouldn't want you to miss it next year! =)

A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough. (I Cor. 5:6)
