The last few days did not go according to any plan - there were parts of fun... a friend's milestone birthday, an unexpected shopping trip with my sister, Wayne got me a new phone (I have an ancient and unstable one at the moment), 'eventual' good baking with Rebecca for a church event and an amazing burger place in the heart of the city.
But there was also an exchange of hot words, 5 cakes 'baking flop', a literal fire in the oven and the house full of smoke, having to leave a Women's Conference within the first few minutes, sitting for hours at the hospital helplessly awaiting results, a school project that had her truly flustered, more baking into the night, cooling overnight and a early rise to finish the cakes, sitting down in the early morning in prayer feeling inept and weak.
Sometimes it's sunshine and sometimes it's rain!! 'I have told you these things, so that you may have peace. In this world you will have troubles, but TAKE HEART. I have overcome the world.'
