Crisp words out of your mouth
Give us this day, yo daily bread
Cereal, morning breakfast
Opened box, no prize in it
Adults playin’ tricks
When you holler at your child
Loops form
Games parents play
Checkmate, your child’s
Innocent ears hearing. . .

Snap, Crackle, Pop!

Hiding in the closet
Afraid of the snappy, quick
Sounds of rage
Innocent eyes looking into the future
Box of generational curses
There’s no packaged toy inside
Silly parents
This ain’t no. . .
Trix are for kids!

When I was a child, I spake and thought, and reasoned as a child. But
when I grew up,
I put away childish things. 1 Corinthians 13:11

    • Dear lady Angela,
      Thank you so much for this thoughtful and delightful award. Due to the busyness of my time and the most recent medical diagnosis—this I’ll share later—I won’t be able to fulfill all of the rules to having received this award. However, I will be posting it as an act of my appreciation. God bless you.😊


  1. Welcome! I am eternally grateful to you for subscribing to follow my blog. I hope you are inspired and enjoyed my posts. heartfelt wishes. Keep blogging.


  2. Wow! double wow! At Bible Study, Sunday sermons, and our leadership academy the pastor has been teaching this concept. Put away childish behavior, self-evaluate, don’t make excuses based on your childhood you’re grown open the Bible, buy a book learn better so you can do better. Snap, crackle, pop.

    Also, The title evokes sound and the memory of Rice Krispies and the image — TRIX cereal box– conjurers that tricky rabbit trying to con people to get what he wants. Combined with the words, “unbridled” “scorned,” “relationships,” “parents,” “children,” and “hiding” one can only imagine the pain and hurt experienced as a child, and as an adult.
    Thank you.


    • You’re welcome lady Angie. But thank God that the Holy Spirit *revealed* that to you—read in your 2nd paragraph.

      God is awesomely amazing, and loving to the end that He would stoop down to our (child-like/human) level and use “cereal” to speak to our hearts!! AHA! It’s indeed, a loving snap, crackle and pop message! 😀


  3. i used to buy this for my children. they have not eaten this in like 10 years now. I think i’m the one that is happy looking at the colours, more so than them, lol…


  4. A felt sadness here, it’s not so easy to put away the child we were with the childish things, but in my mature years I feel the love of God for the child I was and the child I am now after all there are no old people in the Kingdom of God.


    • Yes, it is sad. And I agree, it is not easy to put away that child-like spirit. I know because I’m more often than not a dependent upon Father God. Besides, I naturally love to play various family games and laugh.
      However, often times as relational adults, we like to throw temper tantrums—you know compete—just to see who’s going to be the winner: having his/her way. Unhappily, some of us use those tantrums as weapons of hate or unpleasant darts thrown at each other. And for many, those darts for that type of behavior are aimed at a convenient bullseye, our child(ren).
      Thank you for your important comment and for visiting. Come again, peruse, and or stay a while. 🙂
