Today is National Chocolate Éclair Day. It is also National Take Your Cat to Work Day, but let’s just leave that one alone.
Eclairs do not scratch, yowl, or shed, plus chocolate is involved. I’d much rather take a box of éclairs to work than my cat Oakley, and since I work at home, this is a win-win situation.
The word éclair comes from the French for “lightning” or “flash of light.” Not sure about the connection other than perhaps the first bite into a light and crispy crème-filled, chocolate-covered pastry could be as delightfully jolting as a lightning strike.
So start the week off right. Visit your local bakery and take home a chocolate éclair for dessert tonight. You can even choose between rich chocolate crème filling or decadent vanilla crème. I prefer vanilla.
And if you buy an extra one for the trip home in the car, who’s to know?
There is nothing particularly spiritual about chocolate eclairs – though some people might argue that point. But as it says in 1 Timothy 6:17, our good and beautiful God “gives us richly all things to enjoy!”
No argument there.

Hoss Bozeman approached with his camp-sized coffee pot, and Clay offered his cup.
“I got beans with side pork and hot buttered cornbread, Sheriff.” He nodded at Clay, then took a harder look.
“You remember Clay Ferguson?” Garrett grinned like he and Clay were blood kin. In Clay’s book, they might as well be.
The cookie’s face split with a wide grin. “I thought you looked familiar. Had me goin’ for a minute there. I pride myself on knowin’ everyone who eats here.”
“It’s been a few years.”
“I seem to recall how you cottoned to my bear sign, but I’m fresh out today. Come back tomorrow for breakfast and I’ll fill your gullet.”
Clay nodded, spilling a smile. “I’ll be sure to do that.”
After Hoss left, Garrett took a swig of hot coffee and winced. “His cookin’s passable, but his brew gets a might thick by dinner.” ~An Impossible Price
