God's Cake

My Aunt sent me this e-mail today and it was just what I needed to read as we embark on yet another month of trying. As soon as May comes around it will become 9 months of trying, which becomes a little scary. 9 months is just about the max average Carylon said, but we really don't need to start seeing a specialist or anything until it has been one year in August. Oye...

In other news, we are going to be talking about things with Darren's parents sometime this week. We want them to know what we've been going through, and just have some extra people praying for us. We know it will not be a fun conversation, and we really didn't want to have to tell them we were trying because now when we do get pregnant it won't be a huge surprise, but it's about time we talked to them about it... Wish us luck!

So, here it is - 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 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 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. 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!

...I hope your day is a "Piece of Cake!"
