Cheers for Cheerios

Sometimes I don’t understand my country–United States of America. So would you help me out!

An America company shoots a warm family ad about expecting a new baby soon and it’s targeted for racist comments. The company deserves praise and accolades, not criticism. At least, it wasn’t a dysfunctional family or feuding family environment. What really impressed me, the husband and wife are freely accepting a wanted child, not discussing the pros and cons of an abortion.

For a healthy change, the story line’s about warm family relationships, love, and connection, and implied family breakfast together. And it’s an adorable family. It’s true. The daughter pushes in a puppy as part of the deal. It’s still,“Hats off to the creators!”

So it’s interracial. What’s the beef? God is color blind, so let’s be color blind with Him! We’re all God’s children. Recall the Sunday School song we as children sang: “Red and yellow black and white, we are precious in his sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world.

The Bible says in Genesis 1:28, “God blessed the male and female he created and said to them ‘Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.’” This interracial family is following God’s mandate. So bravo!

Cheerios may not be your breakfast choice, but let’s all grab a big bowl of Cheerios to munch on as we watch the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos battle it out for the trophy in the Super Bowl this weekend.

  1. O-O-O-O-O-O-O – CheeriO;s – I’ve loved them since childhood and still eat them:) You are soooo right – what a great commercial – highlighting and promoting a healthy, happy, loving traditional family. And they are happy about another child and they are eating breakfast together – wOw! God’s plan for marriage, in living color on television. Most folks think the ads are the best part of the Super Bowl, so hopefully many people will see it. Thank you again for a most insightful Umbilical – God enables you to use your gifts to His glory, love Janey
