Random Thoughts...and Cake!

Sometimes things happen when least expected. Events unfold at just the right time, or perhaps even when you might think the "right time" has already passed and it might be too late. This is when I can feel the tide shifting, my emotional waves crashing down in my heart and in my world all around me. I feel like I cannot do one more thing. I feel I cannot go one more day. I feel like no one understands. And most of all, I feel like I can't keep up this charade -of "everything is just fine" - anymore. And it's when I get to this point, He sends someone to remind me. For this, I am grateful.

I am grateful to those who follow inspiration or promptings... I am grateful that the Lord DOES love me... ME! He knows me, He loves me, and He is mindful of my needs and He is mindful of my heart. He knows when I have reached a breaking point and need a break. And He knows when I feel like I just can't do this any more... or at least not on my own.

He knows whom I need and when I need them. And it never fails that I get the hug I need, or the words I am supposed to hear, and even in some cases, a mountain of trials moved that needed to be moved. It is a manifestation unto me that God will make a way where there is no way.

So... now that I have spent most of the day crying and feeling everything from frustration to sadness, to inadequacy, to comfort, and hope, and love... I have one of those "crying" headaches. You know the ones I am talking about right?

On another note... I am really in the mood for some cake. But not just any cake. No, this is a cake my Aunt Lorene makes... it has fruit cocktail in it (but it isn't "fruitcake") and brown sugar and it is super moist, and I love to eat it warm with whipped topping on the top. mmmm.... I can almost taste it!

I know that cake and it is yummy. I bet if we had another amish dinner at Aunt Lorene's we could request that as dessert....along with the pies of course.

Do not stress, we will come early to help set up at the church and don't sweat the small stuff. And about the cake...I hope you made some and enjoyed it.

I don't know about the fruit cocktail cake, but I do have the recipe for the date pudding. I will bring that for our family Christmas.

I have the recipe for the cake and it is one of my favorites too. Maybe I could make it when we come visit.
