God's Cake

Please Note: I did not write this one but it's a great story that explains some of the mysteries of life.

                                      God's 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

      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. For 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!

      Always remember, 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.   Amen.

      Now I hope your day is a "piece of cake!"  After all, Life may
  not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might
  as well dance.

An unknown author wrote a wonderful story so that we can all learn something of value. A wise mother explained God's goodness through the making of a cake.. teaching her daughter a lesson she will most likely never forget. Thanks for sharing this gem with all of us, John. You are an ever faithful steward to our Lord. Blessings, Joy

There is a message here for everyone. When we are going through the bad stuff perhaps God is creating something great for us!

Love ya!

Why do you think they call it angel food cake?

Who says that God's a "He?" Who do you think taught God how to bake?
