I've been busy this week spring break week ... working with 3/5 of my new student ... they are learning to blog with some HELP from me. I'm so very thankful. It's Sneak Peak Friday over at Jennifer's studio and I'm joining in ... why don't yoU?
So my neighbor ... Ms Judy sent me this e-mail (below) which made me think of one of my most favorite Bible verses (on my calendar ... above) and I just had to share it with you!
This is about the best thing
I've ever read as an explanation.
Sometimes we wonder,
'What did I do to deserve this?' or
'Why did God have to do this to me?'
Here is a wonderful explanation!
A daughter is telling her Mother how everything
is going wrong, she's failing algebra, her boyfriend
broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.
Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and
asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the
daughter says, 'Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.'
'Here, have some cooking oil,' her Mother offers.
'Yuck' says her daughter.
'How about a couple raw eggs?' 'Gross, Mom!'
'Would you like some flour then?
Or maybe baking soda?'
'Mom, those are all yucky!'
To which the mother replies:
'Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves.
But when they are put together in the
right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake! '
God works the same way. Many times we wonder why
He would let us go through such bad and difficult
times. But God knows that when HE puts these things
all in HIS order, they always work for good! We just
have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all
make something wonderful!
love is a verb ... sonya la
That's lovely Sonya! so simple and yet so profound! What a great lesson to learn...thank you for sharing today!ReplyDelete
I've seen that email...and not only the individual ingredients, but the element of TIME in the baking is what produces the deliciousness...ReplyDelete
What a great analogy.... I can definitely relate! Thanks for sharing... :o)ReplyDelete

this is a beautiful story and so good to hear.
This is also one of my favorite verses and it always makes me think of you because you created that beautiful piece with my name and the verse!
love & grace to you, friend,
This is beautiful Sonya. I have not heard of this cake story before. It is wonderful!ReplyDelete
Such a wonderful cake story. I read in "Jesus Said", remember I am always holding your hand. That's always a comfort to me.ReplyDelete
very cool but finding it hard to think sweets in the middle of kitchen pumbing problems! It might be better if we had some place to order good takeout!ReplyDelete
at least spring is on it's way..still not here yet but soon!
What a great little story! Thanks for sharing it. I saw your studio in the spring issue of Studios magazine and was intrigued by your story and examples of art. I, too, am a graphic designer, and am cruising for some ideas to organize my laundry room/art workspace. Enjoyed your blogging, too. Great job.ReplyDelete
Hey hey sonya! Thanks for sharing the cake story- I remember hearing it before, but I love being "refreshed". This message is powerful and yummy.ReplyDelete
:D hugs to you!
