I hope your day is a piece of CAKE

    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!

    God is crazy about you.
    He sends you flowers every spring
    And a sunrise every morning.

    Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen.

    He can live anywhere in the universe,
    And He chose your heart.

    I sure needed your poem tonight! Thank you so very much.

    I am still with the 'individual ingredients', but you made me realize that the end result will be a winner!

    God bless you, you made this lady smile, and realize how wonderful God works in our lives, in His own way.

    How could we appreciate the end result if we didn't have to go through that valley???

    Shalom, Shirl
