A Piece of God's Cake

With all that's been going on the past few days, I've been finding comfort in the many emails and phone calls from friends, both within the writing community, and out. I just want to tell you all how much I love and appreciate all of you and thank you for your support in this. I have a long road ahead of me if I'm going to get published, and as soon as I stop feeling sorry for myself, I'll get busy. ;-)

In the meantime, here is something Nichole Giles sent me to give me a little hope.

Thanks Nichole.

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

'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.

If you like this, send this on to the people you really care about.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as
well dance!


  1. I LOVE this story it is so true. I think back on high school sometimes and remember what I wished for. I am so thankful everyday for the wishes that didn't come true, because I see now that it would have been terrible for me. But I couldn't see beyond my own nose at the time. We have to trust that God can see the big picture for us. Even now when we think we are older and wiser, we still aren't wiser than our Loving Father in Heaven.

  2. Christine,

    Thank you so much for posting this. Nichole was surely inspired to write this. It brought tears to my eyes. I have been keeping you in my prayers. I miss you. I really hope you get to come to Storymakers. I really want to spend time with you.

  3. Love that!! Remember that sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together.

    Your story is awesome and so are YOU!!
