My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

God's Cake

Isn't it wonderful to have friends, they are just as important as family. My friend Janice sent me this to use for Saints and Scriptures Sunday. Wasn't that sweet and thoughtful of her. I have read this before, but like most things I forget or need a reminder.

God's Cake
many servings

Sometimes we wonder, 'What did I do to deserve this?' or Why did God have to do this to me. Here is a wonderful explantation.

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 of raw eggs?' Gross Mom!
'Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?'
'Mom, those are all yucky!'

To which her 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 in the 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.

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

Hope your day is a piece of cake!

Remember last week we talked about The Mayonnaise Jar? This week about God's Cake. You are so right, I'm getting ready to give you a Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake recipe. Coming right up!
